Family Court Reform and Parental Rights

Messages Sent So Far
Our family courts are expected to operate in the ?best interest of the children" in cases brought before family court judges.

?But it is not traditionally the sole criterion-much less the sole constitutional criterion... ?The best interests of the child? is not the legal standard that governs parents' or guardians' exercise of their custody: So long as certain minimum requirements of child care are met, the interests of the child may be subordinated to the interests of other children, or indeed even to the interests of the parents or guardians themselves.? -- Reno v. Flores, 507 U.S. 292 (1993)

Millions of Americans who have been through a contested divorce or custody proceeding in the family court systems across the US are acutely aware that injustice is served at the whims of the attorneys and other "profiteers" of the family court system. Unfair custody and parenting time, lifetime alimony, child support calculations based on income rather than actual need, paternity fraud, parental alienation, false allegations with no repercussions, complex legal processes and rules, and numerous other issues not only violate the Constitutional and civil rights of the unfortunate litigants, but serve to contribute to the further denigration of families and leave parents and children emotionally, spiritually and financially damaged for many years into the future.

The US Supreme Court has gone so far as to assert:

?We have little doubt that the Due Process Clause would be offended ?if a State were to attempt to force the breakup of a natural family, over the objections of the parents and their children, without some showing of unfitness and for the sole reason that to do so was thought to be in the children's best interest.?? -- Quilloin v. Walcott, 434 U.S. 246 (1978)

?More important, historically it has recognized that natural bonds of affection lead parents to act in the best interests of their children.? -- Parham v. J. R., 442 U.S. 584 (1979)

Furthermore, experts in child development agree that in the absence of substantiated abuse, shared parenting is better for children:

"There is a consensus that neither the discretionary best interests of the child standard nor sole custody or primary residence orders are serving the needs of children and families of divorce. There is a consensus that shared parenting is a viable post-divorce parenting arrangement that is optimal to child development and well-being, including for children of high conflict parents." -- Edward Kruk, Ph.D., First International Conference on Shared Parenting, May 2014

Yet every day in courtrooms across the US, the rights of parents and children are violated by unconstitutional orders and unfair judgments due to unnecessarily complex and costly adversarial processes that make divorce not only more difficult than necessary, but also create long term financial and emotional impacts on parents, children, and society as a whole.

The divorce process and the accompanying pain and suffering that many families endure is something we don't often like to talk about and taking a stoic and dismissive attitude toward those who feel slighted in the process is perpetuated by a society that fails to recognize the long term and sometimes life-long impact of the dissolution of a family unit. Even less talked about is the role that some attorneys, legislators and other agents of the court take in perpetuating these problems, sometimes unknowingly, but often purposefully to increase their own personal profits or organizational revenue.

These policies and practices are not only unethical, but violate the very oaths taken by attorneys, legislators and other agents of the court to uphold the Constitutional rights of those they are hired to serve. Fortunately however, there are protections built into our system that if invoked will better protect the rights of parents and families of divorce. We The People call upon Congress to take action to reform family courts across the US by investigating and addressing the following issues:

1. Conduct an investigation into the policies and practices conducted in the family courts across the US and by the American BAR Association. Individuals found to be in violation of their oaths of service shall be reprimanded or removed and recommendations shall be made for long term reform. Of particular concern are abuse of judicial discretion, failure to provide equal protection and due process, failure to adjudicate cases in a timely manner, and failure to uphold Constitutional rights of parents to determine what is in the best interest of their own children.

2. Conduct an investigation into child custody laws, practices, and long term impacts. Provide recommendations for updates to state law that are consistent with Supreme Court rulings that uphold the rights of each parent to have essentially equal, ongoing, and meaningful relationships with their children. True 50/50 equal and joint custody and decision making should be the default in all states unless a parent is determined to be unfit or agrees to another arrangement.

3. Conduct an investigation into child support and alimony (spousal support) laws and rulings. Advise and direct courts to develop new policies and practices that adequately provide for the basic financial needs of children being cared for by one or both biological parents not living in the same household, without violating the inalienable financial or property rights of either biological parent. True 50/50 financial responsibility for children based on USDA national guidelines on the cost to raise a child should be assumed unless otherwise agreed upon by the parents.

4. Conduct an investigation into the impact of The Violence Against Women Act, it's effectiveness, and how gender discriminatory policy impacts practices, policies, and judicial decisions in family court and the American justice system. Federal and state laws and programs must be consistently and fairly written and enforced to provide equal protection under the law for both men and women in family court and in programs intended to protect families and children from domestic violence.

CORRUPTION with Children's Services & Family Court Morrow County.... Ohio Biological grandmothers rights for temporary or permanent custody and visitation DENIED for two little girls..sisters 3yrs & 4 yrs old last year....have not seen them for over a year but for 2 minutes!.... APPROVAL given to NON BIOLOGICAL SINGLE ELDERLY MAN WITH MOBILITY IMPAIRMENT....that children were told to call PapPa in a household where mother & the son (mothers on & off boyfriend) to elderly man overdosed on heroin......mother & children only stayed in his home off and on a few months throughout a couple of years. Grandmothers had previous custody for almost a year due to mothers drug abuse...different county...been with children since birth until stolen last year by this county childrens services & guardian ad litem appointed to protect the children....she HAS NOT PROTECTED THEM only traumatized them more! They ALL need to go to jail for child trafficking for their state and county money......everyone should read up on case called KIDS FOR CASH in Pennsylvania....corruption....the systems USE our children as pawns for money! I am disgusted...I have written Senators, Congressmen, etc....no one seems to give a shit! My 2 “great” granddaughters were 3 & 4yrs old at the time…now 5 & 6 yrs old…. Children's Services took them a little over a year ago….what might be final hearing on the matter coming up Aug. 2nd, 2017@9am. Their mother became addicted to heroin & was incarcerated & in rehab in a different state for almost a year. During this “legal” process the GAL & Children’s Services (Morrow County) recommended no visitation or temporary custody to myself or their grandmother…we were denied everything we tried…even filed pro-se’ to be parties to the case….which was thrown out. We are their biological grandmothers & have been with them since birth. Myself & my daughter had temporary custody for almost a year previously from a different county, but lived in same county all this mess is taking place in now due to the drug addiction. I am 61yrs old…decent health…employed…passed all background checks from Children’s Services & so did their grandmother (my daughter). A couple of things on report for daughter were proven to be false belonging to someone else. Children’s Service’s & GAL & the Court (Judge goes along with Gal’s reports & of Children’s Services reports) allowed a non relative single man older than myself who has trouble with a mobility impairment (father of 45yr old something on & off boyfriend to children’s mother who just turned 25…boyfriend overdosed on heroin with children’s mother in his fathers house…(where the children were placed) boyfriend is NOT the children’s father nor is the elder man a biological “Pappa” as children were instructed to call him that. The system here basically stole the children from family. Children are traumatized ….their mother recently returned from out of state only to attempt suicide. We thought things would get resolved when she returned only to get worse. We have begged pleaded got angry….with GAL..Guardian Ad Litem & Children’s Services that this elder man got the children in the first place…we did not have thousands of dollars to hand over to lawyers..we stressed the children’s mother is sick…from the beginning. Mother wanted children with this elder man…he gives her money…she is an addict…they lived with this man only off & on a couple of months here and there with the children of their young lives….the mom was gone incarcerated out of state…and these children were not allowed to see ANY biological family…no one…not Aunt’s/Uncles cousins …only this elder man’s family….whom actually lives very close to me. I drove by his house over & over to get a glimpse of children…never saw them…they were kept confined so we couldn’t see them. Children's Services threatened kidnapping charges on myself & daughter if we did not return children to this man (the on & off again boyfriend of their mother....it is his father that has the children)…..the elder man dropped children off at my house when their mother was first arrested…I had no knowledge all this took place of the overdose with his son or that this man had temp custody of our little granddaughters or what was going on…and this man never informed us and he has our phone numbers & knows where we live...we were forced to take the children to local sheriffs dept to this elder man after he bailed their mother out of jail…after he learned we visited our County Prosecutors Office & Children's Services wanting to know how & why this man had our granddaughters ...as we wanted to care for them as it should have been. The Prosecutor agreed with us they should be with their grandmothers and not this man but Children's Services did not agree. To avoid kidnapping charges the children were brought to the Sheriff dept....everyone was so traumatized!......the children screamed and cried running from this man holding their little arms out for us..they had been at my home Mother's Day weekend while their mom was incarcerated....this is when all this took place. Their mother did not come to the sheriff's dept. Soon after.... the mom was placed in local jail again and transported out of state to Michigan for felony burglary charges. Court had given temp custody to this man at an emergency hearing ...we were not contacted ..no family was contacted & this elder man has our phone numbers…knows where we live…a mile from him….he let it play out this way as I feel he has had ulterior motives about our little girls from the beginning. Furthermore…the heroin addict son of his also was incarcerated for vehicular homicide for 5 or 6 years. This should have NEVER taken place…EVER…. that these children were ripped & torn away from biological family who loves them & has cared for them…the mother is ill or she would not be an addict and no decision of these little girls should have been given to her to place them with an on & off boyfriends father!! It has been an unjust violation to the children & to us and the trauma this has caused. I feel it has been a corruption for these individuals involved to obtain State & County money taking innocent children from loving families that are willing & wanting to care for them during a crisis...... this is despicable! These little girls have 2 different biological fathers.. one their mother was never married to…previous incarceration not part of child’s life…the other she is divorced from who lives out of state currently ,…arrested in past for domestic violence & drugs…..he has filed for custody of the daughter they have between them….we are devastated of what is supposed to be a “civilized” and “just” court system as it is the opposite... full of errors, corruption, and lies and using the children as pawns for money…we were told constantly it was all about reunification with their mother…but in reality…it was the opposite for their state money with no real plans to reunify them at all…lies deceit…corruption. I recently told the Guardian Ad Litem …"who does she think she is to say it is in the best interest of the children…these little girls…to NOT see or be with their grandmothers but only be with this man & his heroin addicted son living in his house with these little precious angels"…just because she is a lawyer doesn’t exempt her from a lawsuit or exempt a lawsuit against State of Ohio Children’s Service’s, caseworkers & possibly the Judge involved for the extreme violation against the children and the biological family. I realize the Judge listens to the reports from Children's Services & Guardian Ad Litem...therefore not hearing what the biological family has to say as we were not permitted to be parties to the case to be able to speak up..to defend ourselves and the children....it is a violation to us and the children...this wasn't protecting the children...this was hurting them!!! There is a case in Pennsylvania about corruption with children called Kids for Cash….Two Judges went to prison for 28 years. I believe this county is similar with how they treat the children in their custody and the families....stealing the children.....trafficking children for funding. I saw my granddaughters by accident 2 weeks ago for 2 minutes …first time in over a year…..we were yelling to each other how we missed each other & love each other…I was able to give them a hug…told them how I have Christmas & Birthday gifts waiting for them…..I had to keep my composure and did not speak one word to that man that has them out of fear of his retaliation to me & possible jail time. I did not want to upset the children. I could see the fear in their eyes afraid to talk to me much with this elder man staring them down…I can only imagine the horrors they have felt and nightmares…not seeing mommy or their grandmothers!…Our hearts have been broken throughout all of this. It is a nightmare. We need a lawyer and/or persons of interest to help us immediately so these precious girls are not split up...this will literally cause great distress with these girls as they have only had each other to cling to & this man that has them should not be given anymore rights over them & for them to not be given up to strangers for adoption. Can anyone please help?…my funds are limited …time is running out…hearing set for August 2nd. 2017@9:00am. I will be in the lobby since not allowed in court!!!! DENIED EVERYTHING!!! SO SICKENING!!!!!

There is a Direct Issue with Item #1 that will perpetuate the "epic" Failures, as you / US / Divorce Corp experienced in the past, as you try to Navigate through this. The Key element; Name the Problem, Address the Issue: When Laws are Broken, address the Law Breakers as who they are, and the State Bar of your State has Zero Governing ability; as the State Bar is a "Society" to protect themselves as being self Governed by who? Other Attorneys. The State Bar Cannot in any Capacity Enforce the Laws that are Broken; as even the local Municipalities will play cover up, and Not provide the Necessary investigation into the Crimes Committed. It is Necessary to have the "State" Bureau of Investigation to conduct the proper Investigation. This is a serious "Offensive" Maneuver / versus being subjected to their cronies, that will not Rat out their Associates, and has ZERO ability to File Criminal Charges against the perpetrators hiding behind the Color of Law, as they conduct Fraud / Corruption / RICO. In Most Cases it is plain and simple RICO, Call it what it is, as Courtroom RICO is how they finally eradicated the KKK from Southern Courtrooms. Now that is our Offense. "No man in this country is so High that is above the Law. No Officer of the Law may set that Law at Defiance of Impunity. All the Officers of the Government from the highest to the lowest, are creatures of the Law, and are Bound to obey it. United States Vs. Lee 106 U.S. 196,220, IS.CT 240, 27 L.ED 171 {1882 So going to the State Bar is a waste of time, and has No Teeth! only the Gums we ALL Heard Flapping, as the State Bar Cannot hold them Accountable, or Rule, or Implement the Laws they Have Broken, with Fines, Fees, and Jail time for the Criminal Activity they have conducted in the State they have a license to "Practice" Law. These are Criminals, and need to be treated as the criminals they are, as they comprehensively Know the Laws they have broken, which really should Carry "Twice" the infraction against them. One of the Worst kind of Law breakers, is the Ones that actually Know better, but "Use" it and Hide behind it. In Most Cases due to their Direct Negligence; Child Abuse infractions need to be implemented. Item # 3; 2nd sentence "Advise and Direct Courts to develop New Policies and practices" Why are We Here? on this Forum? Due to All of the Great "Success" we have achieved? Notta, Standing Up as a "Pro Se" Litigant is Why we had to "Go around" the Criminal Activity we observed. When they start having to be held accountable, fines, Fees, Prison sentences like the rest of Us are subjected to, is the proper "Wake Up" they as Criminals will have to be responsible for, as i "Refrain" back up to United States Vs. Lee. The "Lack" of Accountability is Everybody's #1 Complaint on this Forum. Run a Stronger "Offense" and quit going down the "Patty Cake" route of State Bar where they have Zero, Zip, notta judicial implementation of State Case Law. Offense! They Need a Comprehensive tour of the Judicial system as We All have experienced, as they abuse our children in the process.

I am a disabled Navy Veteran and my son is growing up not even knowing what I did for this country and for him. We are missing out on that because of the failed and corrupt family court system that is laundering money illegally against the constitution. Parents and children are committing suicide because the courts are wrong. Its time to change the law, lock up parents who knowingly keep another parent from seeing their children and get rid of child support. Equal parenting means take care of the kid with your share, get a job and stop abusing the system.

The family courts are a failure to many children.These Judges form personal bias decisions and ruin the lives of children. Nobody monitors these abusive judges and Attorneys. The Bar Association is a waste of time. They protect their own. There is no place to turn to when the bar will not do anything. Judges stop the court room reporters when they want to say something that could be shown as bias. My family has been torn apart due to an abusive Judge and Attorney. Most judges have very little or no training on domestic violence and abuse. The so called Guardian Adlitum has very little experience also. Child Physiologist should replace these Lawyers.

This is for my children as I was subjected to watch them be abused by the court that was to act in their best interest and instead acted in the best interest of their pockets. Ignoring DV, drug and alcohol problems, incarceration, mental health issues and children being put in a position to choose a parent over the other parent. As I was beaten down financially and psychologically I apologize for allowing them to be abused and not being strong enough. All children love their parents and should never be forced to choose nor should a parent's right's be taken unless there is clear evidence of harm to a child. Not heresy, not money, and not the backroom attorney collusion with court officials. This is for my children their children and every other child in hope that one day this nightmare ends for all.

My wife, at the time, took my daughter and moved 300 miles (~ 5 to 6 hours travel time) away without telling me where they were for months. The family court in Spokane Washington, where she eventually turned up at ahs began filling, overlooked this even though it is against the law to move during a divorce without court permission. She then began interfering with contact between my daughter and I by ignoring calls, disconnecting calls whenever she wanted and denying visitations. The court and assigned commissioner, Rugel, allowed and enabled this. She drug me to court time and time again through frivolous litigation asking for visitation restrictions each time and winning each time with false acusations despite solid evidence to the contrary from my side. Even when the commissioner over the trial pointed out in court that her claims were frivolous he still sided with her and his friend, her attorney. I have been denied due process. I have witnessed a commissioner (Rugel) , lawyers (Stenzel and his partner Ziggler) and a judge (Price) ignore facts that were presented to the court by my side in which it clearly showed wrong doing by the mother. When I sought to have the court enforce ordered visitations that the mother decided not to follow, the commissioner instead opted to take "advice" from her attorney in court who suggested the court enforce a new order that allowed the mother to continue denying visitation. The list of outrageous attrocities and blatant disregard of my daughter's best interest goes on. I have been restricted to only being able to see my child an unhealthy ~14% of the time due to her mother's selfish actions of moving 5 hours away and resisting equal parenting time in order to avoid inconveniencing her own life. This has led to depression and eventually termination from my job. I am now unable to pay my child support requirement and am about to lose my license because of it which will greatly inhibit my ability to reach the exchange point that is ~three hours away where I pick up my daughter on those two weekends a month that we are allowed to see each other. So it seems that the family law system has enabled, aided and abetted my daughter's malicious mother in stripping my child from my life and alienating us from each other. I am a veteran and a good father yet still I find my rights trampled and denied.

I was abused and thrown to street by father then when dcfs was called by sons school...they opened case because of him. His icon sister involved herself to protect her reputation. Domestic violence sweep under carpet, Stripped of all parental rights and discriminated and removed from children life without any evidence. Investigaer was paid off to spin onto me...mother. Judge closed case giving father full legal even thou he did not obey any orders. Its been over a year and my childrfen have been miss informed and alienated from me. I can name at least 5 illgal actions by DCFS. The special investigate was not working for state...she was working for Ms Ross. MY LIFE TAKEN AND CHILDREN ABUSED PHYSIOLOGICAL AND BRAINWASHED FOR IMAGE,,,DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF MY CIVIL PARENTAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS. DENYED JUSTICE FOR ABUSE, PHYSICAL...AND TOTALLY DISREGARDED BY DCFS,

Myself and others being denied due process, stealing my property, government doing nothing when our children are being hidden while jailing and imprisoning and, killing people for not having paid these extortion payments. To discover that the states' are doing this all because of their greed. The judges and commissioners need to be investigated and charged with fraud, violating civil rights, child abuse, false imprisonment, conspiracy, and more.

Vawa ^ Is the biggest travesty of our time, it says ain't in its context that only women can be victims of violence including domestic and fosters a lie. Funding for victims can only be given out bases on gender and many court cases have been filed challenging the idea of of sided gender funding. It's just another example of the boondoggle available with government funds to anyone who know how to write up a grant proposal or start a nonprofit to profit off the grants.

Mothers suffer too. The imbalance of he calculations of support in Alaska do not take into account the custodial parent's income. As a completely fit mother, this resulted in my 36k income vs his 96k income putting me nearly on the street. Alaska backdated and increased my support for 7 years all at once, and now that my kids are both adults, I'm paying 16,000 in arrears to him. He won't drop a dime of it and it has caused irreparable damage to my children being used as pawns for their entire childhood by their father. The courts do not listen and Alaska does not even follow their own laws.

This needs so much attention. People don't think about it until their own family is affected and that needs to change..

I agree 100%. I haven't seen my child for 5 years and every time I try it seems they try to make it as expensive as possible to make it impossible for me to do so. My sons mother gets $1,015 a month for child support and still won't be a decent human being and talk to me parent to parent to figure out a solution to make it easier to actually co-parent. I have been run out of financial options to afford anything and she continues to hide behind her lawyer and the Larimer County Justice System of Colorado. Not to mention I live in Wisconsin and she now lives somewhere in Georgia. Please help the fathers who actually want to play a part in their kids lives and deminish this unlawful system they have created in family courts.

More needs to looked into women making false allegations against fathers. So many use this to gain an unfair advantage over the father in court. I understand there are cases where the mother and her children are actually in danger and I fully understand that. There are so many that lie just to gain that unfair advantage. My daughter-in-law actually told me that is what she did. It is so very unfair to all involved, especially the children.
