Enforce Due Process in Family Court

Messages Sent So Far
The Family Court processes are UNJUST and UNCONSTITUTIONAL, the process relies on the Judge's opinion and decision, which can easily be bought, putting our children's best interest on the market to be bought.

Whereas: The 14th Amendment of the Constitution assures that no State shall "deprive any person of LIFE, LIBERTY, or PROPERTY WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW".

Whereas: At the beginning of the 5th Amendment it states that "NO PERSON SHALL BE HELD TO ANSWER for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, UNLESS ON A PRESENTMENT OR INDICTMENT OF A GRAND JURY" (which is a jury of peers.) This is what due process is, your case (no matter what type of case, be it criminal, family, etc.) be presented in front of a Grand Jury, IT IS OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.

Whereas: The State and Federal government consider children to be the property of the parents. Without due process in the family court, we can easily be deprived of our children/property.

Whereas: Family Court proceedings do not abide by the constitutional right to due process providing a Grand Jury.

Therefore: It is time to hold the Family Court accountable to congress and the American People. I urge you to do everything in your power to pass the Enforce Due Process in Family Court bill!

As a South Carolina resident and a grandmother. I have seen first hand how our family court system is dysfunctional and plays a very big part in a bullying game with attorneys and parents. In Newberry county there is a lawyer who has made it very clear to his client that what a family court judge has ordered is not what is required. He has lied numerous times in the court room and attempts to intimidate everyone he comes in contact with. Family court is corrupt and we should be striving to give these children a better life and consider the best options of joint custody when both parents have a desire to be a part of the childs life. It is devastating enough for a child to experience the dissection of their family but to allow an attorney to play God, is the straw that broke the camels back. I have the freedom to feel that this lawyer, DSS and the family court system are missing the big picture and their performance in regards to childrens welfare does not represent the desire to consider the best interest or the mental health of children in any such circumstance. Please, lets revamp these guidlines for our family courts. We need to consider more often than none that the family court system is used by a vengeful ex, attempting to place additional harm on the other while all the while the child is used as a pawn and they are the ones who suffer. 1) When you have two parents who each have a desire to be a part of the childs life, make it shared custody with no questions asked. 2) When the judge can only take the time to see one side of the picture due to another not having the ability to acquire legal respresentation, a grand jury should be called in and the court system should be quick to connect the other parent with a pro bono lawyer. Legal Aid here in South Carolina is failing also. The do not follow through with their call in applicants or even send a follow up letter to state when a potential client might acquire representation. 3) We should be ever so diligent in considering the ridiculous expectations of the monetary child support. Each parent should share the cost of the childs needs such as clothing, doctor, dental, daycare and extra curricular activities. Outside of that, the cost for rent, power bills, cable TV and food should fall on the individual parent as that is their personal household. 4) The child support should go into an account that is supervised. This meaning the parent has a debit card to the account but every transaction made with that card there is a receipt to support the transaction as a necessity for the child. Too many people are looking to use children as additional income and for all the wrong reasons! This is a festering sore that is building to a head in almost every state and becoming more prevalent need and groups are coming together asking for someone to step in and Please dig into this system and let's make a change for the benefit of future generations. God Bless!

Long story short, judge Hudson of dyersburg tn denied an attorney as well as due process. In addition judicial code stated that if a presumed bias is believed the judge must recuse himself. Also he had prior evidence to evidenciary facts only he knew. He accepted evidence outside of court and failed to log or present it. He allowed admitted false testimony and ignored it. I deserve rights he purposely didn't allow

Non custodial parents are being ordered by the family court to pay for college while they have no jurisdiction to order intact families to pay for college this is a direct violation of the fourteenth amendment which provides equal treatment under the law

As an American parent I was Constitutionally entitled to present my case before a Grand Jury . I did not fathom that a Family Law Court could fully deny my due process rights and take my daughter away from me forever because SHE alleged her father had repeatedly molested her. The Family Courts must be held accountable for the damage and harm to my daughter and myself at the hand of the Family Law and Probate Court in Los Angeles, CA .

I have waited almost this entire year to see a judge for my case and still have no answers no matter how hard I try. It as been since January 30, 2015 since I have been able to see my daughter and I have tried every week and get no where. Due process needs to be passed for family law as soon as possible. This is just ridiculous if I've gone this long I can only imagine how many others are going through it.
