Next week, Patrick Glynn, 48, of Los Angeles, will start walking 400 miles to draw attention to the issue of family courts that rip children from loving parents.
Glynn will begin in Boston, Massachusetts and end up in Washington, D.C., arriving for the Family Law Reform Conference, sponsored by Divorce Corp. The conference will take place at the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia, on November 15-16, 2014.
“I’ve been in the court system,” Glynn said. “Like everybody else, I’ve seen first hand the corruption, the atrocities. Courts do whatever they want. There’s no checks and balances.”
Patrick Glynn lives in Los Angeles, California, but his two daughters are in San Jose, a five-hour drive away. “Technically I get them one weekend per month, but it’s difficult and expensive,” Glynn says. In reality, he sees his kids during school vacations.
Glynn considers himself fortunate. His partner, Sarah Nickerson, was recently in court trying to get more time with her children. It did not go well for her. Glynn tells the story on his Walk for Lost Kids website:
“One of the big drivers for me on the walk is that the people who most need to get their stories out are so beaten down that they can’t tell their own story,” Glynn said. “What can be more horrible than having your kid taken away from you?”
