They do!! My ex tried to kill me in front of our kids. they gave custody to the one who tried to kill me AND I NEVER ever harmed any of my kids. My eldest daughter was placed with her father who had been arrested for taping a pornographic video of her previously..after they placed her with him she was raped by him and went to prison. My last clild was removed but in the removal hearing the worker stated "he (my son) was safe and very well cared for...) my lawyer asked for my son to be returned....the judge says "blah blah blah this is MY court room...i will do what i want!" im disabled and have been since 1995 but i must get a job or my rights will be terminated. There is discrimination..bias...prejustice..lies and kids being hurt..families ruined and no one cares. Peoples basic rights arent upheld and most often people are threatened with gag orders if they report it.Wyoming county new york
I never thought that in America that someone who was charged with assaulting you could win custody of your child. I never believed that in America that evidence of child abuse, domestic violence, and judicial misconduct...would be ignored in family courts, which were implemented to serve the best interests of the children. From my experience, it appears that some family courts are more concerned with who has the most money versus abuse, trauma, and the safety and psychological well being of children. It seems that some family court judges are not knowledgeable about adverse childhood experiences and I pray that all of these travesties change.

Need reform and over site
We need JUSTICE, our children need JUSTICE
We need JUSTICE, our children need JUSTICE
I have survived Family Court for 10 years. I have faught the corruption at all levels. There is a desperate need for reform and oversight hearings to protect the innocent party and children.

I initially lost contact with my children after a domestic violence incident and two corrupt attorneys forced me forfeit my rights after a violent attack by my abuser.

Instead of holding abusers accountable, there are too many loopholes in the system that judges, attorneys and other professionals use to further undermine and harm the protective parent. This allowing the children to continue to live in harms way with abusers.

Enough is enough! This is America. And the Laws were created to be upheld with dignity, grace, truth and justice.

Our children are counting on us to right these wrongs and make their world a better place!
My name is Amy Brockwell, I lost custody of my children in 2009 for no crime of my own. The lives of my children and I have been depriciated and paralyzed with little help from society. I am not alone, there are thousands like me. Some in harm that is more horrid than I can believe. Yet, to a mother, any harm a child should not have to endure is harm enough!!......Why would society choice a Motherless America? Why would society harm America's Children and Future. This IS A NATIONAL CRISIS.....this warrants immediate change in legislation and legal acoountablity. These children and these mothers should not have to wait...six month, one year, several years for resolve. We are citizens of the United States of America and these are our Rights!I Please see what can be done to heal these injustices. Thank You Sincerely. Amy Brockwell Courts of Colonial Heights, VA
Responsible fatherhood is not. Afcc and other trade organizations are abuser lobbies. This is epidemic. CDC won't have this data although USC 42 272k in 1978 divorce stats are sent to CDC used by HHS Afc etc myriad of others. Kids are taken after divorce. All day is faulty. No data driven practices in any courts involving afcc. A judge JUDGE gave me a diagnosis not a mental health provided and took my kids away to the abusers. Afcc judge ordered me to afcc cronies for therapy- no diagnosis do only cash pay- and therapeutic supervised visitation- no such thing to her other afcc buddy. To see my children 9 hours a month it would cost me $2,350.00 per month. Haven't seen them in years and court won't accept motions. But at least I am not living in a car.
I have survived this Family Court scandal and now focus on healing. My three adult children are still reeling from the effects of this ignorance, corruption, and financial profiteering though divorce, in our family, occurred in 1988 (Please note: The personality disordered father/batterer stalked and harassed until 1996). I wrote a book, "Spellbreaker, Transcending Violence", under a pseudo name Mariah Clausen, in order to help my children make sense of the lies, violence and manipulation from their abusive father. I am now a mental health professional, in private practice, and semi-retired. I will dedicate the rest of my life to doing what I can to correct this systemic failure of family courts and to protect innocent children.
I have been in the Marin County Family Courts for over 12 years fighting to protect my daughter from abuse. Corrupted court system and no interest in truly what is "the best interest of the child"

I have been failed by our system and there isn't any help out there. I left my abuser with our daughter but was told by our Commissioner, "because he didn't bash my face in she couldn't grant me the restraining order."
She also fell for the charming narcissistic individual that he is and awarded him 50% custody. Now my daughter is subject to his mental and emotional abuse and there isn't anything I can do about it. I HAVE TRIED-
Abused children are not being protected in our Family Courts. Instead abused children are routinely sent to visit/live with their abusers and they cannot escape, because the courts believe "parents rights" (abusive parents too) are more important than children's rights to safety and sanity. This leaves the innocent child victims and the people trying to protect them (the "protective parent") locked in a cycle of abuse ORDERED by the courts. It is an abusers heaven, as they are being given the LEGAL right to continue to torture and molest. Please investigate and reform this crises in the Family Courts immediately. Children are suffering now.
I was able to divorce my abusive ex-husband, yet our children must spend 50% of their time with him. He has punched our son close fisted, resulting in my 10 yr old filing a police report; DCF and the police said it was child abuse, yet the state attorney refused to act. There have been acts of molestation and at first DCF says he can't be naked with children, yet on repeat offenses they say to force a child to shower with and wash the dad's ***** is a "lifestyle choice." My children do not feel safe, nor loved when in his custody, yet the court enforces his parental rights to have 50% custody. Why are his rights valued more than our three children's?! Why is our system set up to perpetuate abuse?
I have spent 100k over the past 4 years defending false and frivolous motions to protect myself and my children from my ex-husband. We have a mediator and six therapists involved with the latest false accusations. My ex has tried to control the whole process and has isolated me from two of my three children in the process. We need change to protect victims of DV AFTER the divorce the abusers.
My lil girl cries for me after our visit, she is only two and i miss her this is not by any means a far situation. Somebody listen to the cries for help from us the parents of lil children that or going through the mental abuse courts and cps are the putting these delicate human beings through
It just doesn't make any sense how these trusted government officials (Judges and Law Guardians) don't see how backing an abusive person and granting orders they in essence license the abusers and provide avenues and/or tools for the abusers to CONTINUE abusing and controlling their victims, prolonging their misery and creating more damaged kids... Shame, Shame, Shame

How sad, but how true this is...these are our children and they are being taken away from the protective parent, given back to abuser who approx 86% of the time will get sole custody and protective parent is given supervised visitation. Why because the Court 96% will find the protective parent guilty of Parental Alienation Syndrome: a diagnosis that isn't even recognized by the APPA or the ASPP. The child is ripped away from the protector and forced to be with the abuser so child retracts the abuse out of fear. The child is told not to ever talk about it and they won't receive needed psychiatric or therapeutic help for their trauma. So child has learned the truth doesn't matter, the system won't protect me (so they will never tell again) and their trauma is totally repressed. The statistics are staggering and the damage has been done, however ALL OF US are accountable to help find the solution; so can we please. Give these children a choice, so they can use their voice! Thanks.

If you follow the money this is good cop/bad cop and both sides mother/father are played with in order to take money and destroy lives. They do not care about any of this its all about making money off of the stupid cows.

I was stationed overseas for 18 years while I was in the military. Never seen corruption anywhere like we have in the family court system here in Arizona. I am ashamed of what I am seeing!! Can't believe this is happening in the country I served for 26 years!!
If you can't help my children, then maybe you can help others.
How can this country continue this insanity? Why won't legislators refuse to listen to us? Is there a money trail??

My batterer husband was given equal parenting rights in my divorce settlement despite having been convicted of abuse.
my family has experienced such a degrading process and still is while the abuser is able to keep abusing the child and we are being forced to send her with him it is a nightmare for everyone. we have tried to follow the rules while the abuser does not and gets away and keeps getting away with it. we will never give up and somehow the truth will be made clear. we will be advocates in every way we can for childrens rights that are abused every abuser should be evaluated if they are not guilty it will become evident and if they are proven guilty by the evaluation the child becomes safe and becomes a value to society
My family experienced this in 1988 and the devastating effects to myself and my children last to this day. I wrote a book about this. This "might makes right" is destroying lives. The corruption is so repulsive that this is no longer an America I can believe in. When batterers are held accountable, there will be much peace on Earth.
Millionof dollars each year could be saved if the governorment would investigate how CPS takes children from parents that are not neglected or abused and adopt them out so they can recieve federal funding to keep their jobs. Investigate and see how many children are adopted each year. Can you really believe this many parents neglect and abuse their children? I can prove several cases myself. Make CPS prove their cases rather than on hearsay.
The courts are giving our children to fathers that have been an abuser, where is the Real Justice ,How long will the Goverment sit back ,turn a blind eye and allow our courts to give fathers custody of their children with known Domestic Violince against their mothers ,also these PAS groups ,and Fathers rights , paying judges and agencies,also Dr;s and dirty avocate ,medation lawyers and DSS ,or CPS lying ,corruption to win these case for the fathers and paying for their layers for the Just to get some cash in there deep pockets ,Where is the Justice for the Kids , when will our goverment stop looking away and do something ....Granville ,NC
