Patrick Glynn to walk 400 miles for kids lost to high-conflict divorce

Next week, Patrick Glynn, 48, of Los Angeles, will start walking 400 miles to draw attention to the issue of family courts that rip children from loving parents.

Glynn will begin in Boston, Massachusetts and end up in Washington, D.C., arriving for the Family Law Reform Conference, sponsored by Divorce Corp. The conference will take place at the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia, on November 15-16, 2014.

“I’ve been in the court system,” Glynn said. “Like everybody else, I’ve seen first hand the corruption, the atrocities. Courts do whatever they want. There’s no checks and balances.”

Patrick Glynn lives in Los Angeles, California, but his two daughters are in San Jose, a five-hour drive away. “Technically I get them one weekend per month, but it’s difficult and expensive,” Glynn says. In reality, he sees his kids during school vacations.

Glynn considers himself fortunate. His partner, Sarah  Nickerson, was recently in court trying to get more time with her children. It did not go well for her. Glynn tells the story on his Walk for Lost Kids website:

“One of the big drivers for me on the walk is that the people who most need to get their stories out are so beaten down that they can’t tell their own story,” Glynn said. “What can be more horrible than having your kid taken away from you?”

When I read things like this I wonder which one is the psychopath and I suspect it is the one trying to get attention. That is the problem with these creatures who want to win at any cost. They can APPEAR more sincere than a real person and I emphasize appear. The courts need education, not stunts to give equal rights to abusive parents.


The account left me doubting his motivation, too. He says 5 hours away is too far to arrange to see his children one weekend a month; yet he has time to walk from Boston to DC to attend the conference. It’s possible that his resources would be better used spending time with his children, working to earn money for transportation, etc. My own experience includes visiting an ill family member 5 hours away every other week when I did not have an abundance of resources.

Also, many many parents make personal life sacrifices to reside close to their children, to facilitate visits and to avoid burdening the children with long travel time.
