This review is for the non-custodial father, who lives in the shadows of a custodial parent. \r
Imagine being there everyday, watching your child grow in front of your eyes, then suddenly your child is taken away for selfish gain . Unfortunately just like many of you, I was placed on child support and given standard visitation. For 12 years I supported my child emotionally, mentally, physically, and financially to name a few. I attended school functions, after school programs, and extracurricular activities. As years passed, my child began to show a sudden loss of interest in school and began to express how unhappy living with the custodial parent had become. After my child ran away, I knew things were about to get serious. As a father I couldn't watch my child go through this downfall. I wanted to be more involved in my child's life but the custodial parent wouldn't allow me. I seeked legal representation and hired Lawyer Steve Benke. I wanted an experienced child custody lawyer, who was knowledgable when it came to the laws of the state and who would work with me and for me. After a few court hearings, Mr. Benke was able to equal the playing field. Now my child's mother and I have equal amount of time with our child and share equal rights. ""50/50"". Thanks Mr. Benke!
