On today's show, we discuss Fathers With Voices with Eric Legette. During the time Mr. Legette was laying the foundation for Fathers With Voices, his own daughter was two years old. In between working at times two jobs and attending college full-time at night, he made time to bond with his daughter. In September of 1996, Mr. Legette’s time with his daughter was threatened. Mr. Legette became involved in a seven-month visitation case in order to maintain a relationship with his daughter. The experience was a life-changing event because it led Mr. Legette to develop a passion to help fathers who really desired to be involved in their child’s life after a separation or divorce. At times, the experience left him feeling he was a man without a voice. However, he also learned if a man conducted himself in the proper manner, consistent in attending his court appointments and dressed appropriately, a judge would consider a father more favorably. It is these lessons that he has shared with men to be successful within family court. His original visitation case was successful and he later found it necessary to file for custody of his daughter. After three years of litigation, Mr. Legette was awarded full custody.
