    Not surprising being a father in SC…we are under represented in the court systems by corrupt judges who regardless of evidence for custody its thrown out and disregarded…judges quick to lock you up when behind on payments ie..via his court order…but non enforcement of visitation to said same court order..ex spouse free to roam with wanton abandon destroying all Father child relationships which the judges are a party too. Yet suffering no consequences for the lopsided enforcement of his order this is systemic within the court systems regardless of color..and is cause for greater incarceration among fathers compounding their efforts to be productive and find meaningful employment…
