Default Is there an Ottawa Divorce Support Group for Dad/Men?

In the painful divorce process for almost two years, my son is over 1 year old by now but I only saw him handful times (less than 24 hours in total) in the whole year. Ex lies about "I am planning to sell the child in black market" and tried everything she can to deny my access even court order states my access is once a week. Just painful to think about it. So ugly!

Hey TBone - you have nothing to fear. There are many men on this forum who have a strong distrust of women after their divorce.

I'm sure you will find some useful information on here.

You can always try Meetup.com

However, I would suggest that divorce and custody is equally difficult emotionally for men and women, and a men only group will not be so much different than any other divorce support group.

Another suggestion, if you truly feel there is a benefit to a male only group, you could always start one

The whole divorce is a nonstop nightmare - time, energy, emotionally and financially... Non stop in my thought. Feel the need to talk with someone who has/had this experience, sharing and speak out the feeling... Anyone interested?

Meetup.com is real life, they have groups available all over the country for just about everything you can imagine. And if there isn't one that suits your needs, you can always start one

You can always private message Oink. He might need someone to vent with.

Here's a couple that I found listed. Can't endorse anything but there are reviews posted and you can check out the previous events or meetups that have been held:

The Separated/Divorced Support/Social Meetup Group (Nepean , ON) - Meetup

Single Parents Club of Ottawa (Ottawa , ON) - Meetup
