Hi! I'm William Whitworth, a born again Christian, husband, author, entrepreneur, and most importantly, "Dad!". Over the course of 8 years, I had to fight tooth and nail for the right to see my daughter. My ex obtained unjustified restraining orders, lodged multiple complaints and made false allegations against me, including accusations of abuse and many other claims that simply were not true. I continued to fight for my right to be a vital part of my daughter's life and eventually won 50/50 shared custody! At times I even went months without hearing or seeing my child and I know personally the pain, frustrations, heartbreak, and disappointments along the way.

My hope and prayer is that we here at www.fightingdads.com will be able to help you in your journey to being more involved in your child's life and the importance of a child having their father in their life. I'll be honest, it wasn't always an easy road, and I know that there will be additional struggles. My desire is that my experiences will help you on your journey. There are no iron clad guarantees; however, if you apply some of what I have learned over my 8 year journey it may help.Thanks,
— William Whitworth
