About Stand Up For Gus
Our mission is to raise monetary support for alienated parents desperately trying to maintain a meaningful relationship with their children. Your money will provide free legal representation to deserving families with limited resources struggling with costly custody battles.
In addition, Stand Up For Gus hopes to shed light on and reform an antiquated loophole in our legal system that degrades a father’s role to that of merely a sperm donor if the parents are unmarried and the couple conceived their child through in-vitro fertilization.
With so many children lacking trusted guardians, we encourage and celebrate any parent willing and able to stand up as an example of unconditional love for their child. We believe children have a right to a meaningful, loving relationship with both their parents.

What does it mean to stand up for something?
