This week’s Time and Place photo was taken in front of the Fulton County Justice Center on Central Avenue in Atlanta. The photo is of Dean Gottschalk who was holding a sign that read “Honk for 50/50 shared parenting.” The sign refers to a movement he is a part of that advocates equal time for parents in instances of divorce that involve minor children. Dean explained his recent experience that led him to standing in front of the Justice Center with the sign. “Thanksgiving week I was falsely accused of abusing my children and the result is a presiding judge, without asking for proof, took the allegations at face value and leveled a punishment on me and my children. This year was my court-ordered year of Thanksgiving, so this is my year to have the kids and the ruling prevented my kids from having Thanksgiving with me.” Dean explained another man named Gregory Eisenhauer took this type of news harder and killed himself two days after Thanksgiving. According to Dean, Eisenhauer had received an order the day before Thanksgiving limiting his time with his children to 15%.
