The 71st Legislative Assembly began on January 8, 2001, in Salem, Oregon, and is expected to adjourn sometime in July, 2001. Since the Oregon Legislature meets once every two years, this time is very important for Oregon Fathers and their families. During this time, bills will be introduced and possibly voted on to become law. It is Fathers Online view that some of these bills are good and some are bad. Fathers Online tracks bills in the Oregon Legislature that concern domestic relations. Below is a list of topics that Fathers Online will be tracking in the Oregon Legislature.
- Parenting Time (Visitation)
- Domestic Violence
- Child Support
- Access to Records
It is important that Fathers make their voices heard. If you feel that you have been
treated unfairly, you can not expect someone else to take action for you. You have to speak up. You have to take action. You have to do what needs to be done to draw the attention of the appropriate people in government, in the public, in your community, wherever this needs to be raised as an issue. It's up to you. You can't sit back. We have to band together. You have to do the work. We all have to do it because no one else is going to do it for us.
"A Man must have society's gaurantee that when the woman does accept a marraige contract, the contract will be enforced. The legal system is not responsible to create motherhood; it is responsible to create fatherhood and to support it. This is the primary reason it exists. The fathers' rights movement must make judges and lawmakers understand this. Only in this way can fatherhood survive, only in this way can men, women and children have stable families."
