ANOTHER FATHER’S DAY

SHARE ANOTHER FATHER’S DAY

Dennis Donithorn, center, executive director of Utah Fathers and Children Together, and others listen to a song composed and sung by Ken Kump, left, during a candlelight vigil on the north steps of the 3rd District Courthouse Saturday night. Those gathered were protesting unfair visitation and custody privileges they say have been levied against divorced fathers. Donithorn, whose headquarters are in Provo, said, "Of all Utah divorce cases involving children, more than 95 percent of the court decrees grant custody of the children to the mother. Of those cases contested, 91 percent of the decrees still give the mother custody of the children." The organization, formed last Wednesday, will hold meetings the next four Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the Law and Justice Center, 645 S. Second East, Salt Lake City.
