          ‘I’ve Missed A Lot Of Important Times Because I’ve Been Forced Out,’ Claims Teen’s Estranged Dad


          October 10, 2017

          John says his ex, Cydney, needs to stop putting up roadblocks that prevent him from being a father to their 16-year-old daughter, Dakota.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          “She’s squeezed me out of Dakota’s life, and I’ve missed a lot of important times because I’ve been forced out,” he says.

          John claims that when Dakota was younger, Cydney lied to the courts, telling them he was abusive in an attempt to get a restraining order against him. Over the years, he claims, Cydney has “blown off” his court-ordered visitation with Dakota, and refused to go to mediation.

          “Dakota has never had an opportunity to know her dad,” says John. Cydney adamantly denies John’s claims.

          Why does John say Cydney tried to keep him away from their daughter? And what advice does Dr. Phil have for the former couple in moving forward together as co-parents?
