Welcome to the Fathers for Equal Rights, Inc. (FER) website. Please take a moment to read this brief introduction so that you and your children (or grandchildren) can benefit as much as possible from your visit today and in the future.
Fathers for Equal Rights, Inc. (FER), is located in Dallas, Texas, with offices in both Dallas and Fort Worth. We are one of the largest and most active fathers' rights organizations in the U.S. FER is a 38 year old, non-profit education and civil rights organization, recognized as a 501 (c) (3) organization by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. (So, if you want to make a charitable contribution, it may qualify for a tax deduction!) We receive no government grants of any kind, so we depend primarily upon walk-in and online members for our revenue. While we usually have one or two attorneys on our Board of Directors, we are not controlled or managed by lawyers. We are dads, just like you.
Our website, which you are looking at, is our effort to assist fathers, children, and families beyond our walk-in offices in Dallas and Fort Worth. Through the Internet we can now share our knowledge and empower fathers around the corner and around the world.
You can now access Fathers for Equal Rights at Facebook by clicking on the link www.Facebook.com/Fathers-For-Equal-Rights or keep track of us and our events on your phone through text messages by going to our Twitter page.
Fathers for Equal Rights, Inc. now has two types of membership available to our website visitors: our Free Membership and our Premium Membership. (These are separate from our Dallas and Fort Worth office memberships.) I want to encourage each and every one of you to purchase a Premium Membership. Our Premium Membership is an incredible breakthrough educational tool (see some of the benefits below). The cost is only $50.00 for an entire year (That's less than 15 minutes of time with most family law attorneys!!), and the benefits are truly incredible.
For starters, as a Premium Member, you will be able to direct an unlimited number of questions to licensed attorneys from the comfort and privacy of your home or office. And, most important, you will actually receive an answer!
Further, as a Premium Member, you get unlimited access to our library of online audio courses on relevant subjects such as Enforcing Visitation, Domicile Restrictions vs. Relocation, Child Custody Evaluations, General Trial Strategy, Depositions, Here Comes the Judge, Parenting Plans, The Rights of Grandparents, Courtroom Demeanor, Parental Alienation, and so many more. These courses have been recorded by father-friendly attorneys and other professionals who are knowledgeable and skilled in helping dads and their children. You can listen to any or all of our growing library of important titles at your leisure. You may even want to record a course of your own, which we will consider making available to our Premium Members worldwide.
As you register for the first time, whether you choose a Free Membership or Premium Membership, you will be asked to complete a brief, confidential questionnaire about you, your children, and your case. Providing this confidential information is optional of course, however it will help us plan new father-friendly features based on interest and needs in various parts of the U.S. and the world! Also, by knowing in what city, state or country you reside, we hope to be able to help fathers and their friends locate needed support or fathers' rights organizations and services. So, by telling us a bit about yourself and your situation it increases the chance that we can provide useful information for you and your children.
Thanks for visting the NFRC website. Be sure to visit often since we plan to be adding new information and features regularly. If you have any ideas or special needs, please let us know. And thanks for your commitment to the fathers, children, and families of Planet Earth!
