Fathers United is a support group comprised of Fathers from all different walks of life who have come together and bonded through their experiences fighting for custody of their children. Majority of our members represented themselves pro se while some were fortunate enough to afford the services of a lawyer. The uniting force that binds all members is our love for our kids and community. In noticing the severe lack of resources for fathers across the globe Fathers United is doing it's share to change the narrative by having every father active in every child's life.
We believe that all children have a desire to be raised, parented, and nurtured by their fathers just as they do their mothers. We do not believe that children see fathers as “non-custodial” or “visitor”. We do not believe that children love their mothers more because they carried them in the womb. Additionally, we believe that children have an equal biological and instinctive bond with their fathers as they do with their mothers.
Fathers United Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to restoring fathers to prominent roles in all children’s lives. We know the statistics; that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crimes; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it. Approximately 84% of custodial parents are mothers. Children who have involved loving fathers are less likely to be incarcerated, have behavioral problems, and less likely to drop out of school. Children who have involved loving fathers are more social, earn higher grades, graduate from high school, attend college, are more financial responsible, and all around more productive in society. A father is much more than a financial responsibility. Money cannot tuck a child in at night; it cannot sooth a boo-boo, or get rid of monsters under the bed.
Fathers have been denied parental rights, visitation, and custodial authority for far too long. Father’s United Inc. will assist Fathers with custody, child support, visitation and much more.

"The U.S. is becoming an increasingly fatherless society. A generation ago, an American child could reasonably expect to grow up with his or her father. Today an American child can reasonably expect not to. Fatherlessness is now approaching a rough parity with fatherhood as a defining feature of American childhood."
