Racketeering Lawsuit Against Family Courts

Posted August 31, 2013 by themastermoor in MHRA

California Parents File Federal Racketeering Lawsuit against Family Court Judges; Charge Criminal Extortion, Bribery, Abuse of Office

PRESS RELEASE

August 20, 2013 — San Diego, CA – In its continuing campaign to end the harassment, fraud, and abuse rampant in California State Family Courts, a parents’ rights group, the California Coalition for Families and Children, has filed a lawsuit today in federal court charging the San Diego County courts, social workers, divorce attorneys, and psychologists with federal criminal racketeering.

“The abuses of parents and children by Family Courts, social workers, and family law attorneys have harmed parents and children for far too long. We intend to end that abuse.” says CCFC President Colbern Stuart. “Family court is designed by its makers to be probably the most dangerous life event parents and children can endure. It enables and profits from every inhumane instinct known to man—greed, hate, resentment, fear—resulting in abundant cash flow for the divorce industry and a fallout of parent and children’s misery.”

“And behind the curtain of this machine of misery we’ve uncovered its cause—the multi-billion dollar divorce industry, populated by judges, attorneys, and a machinery of tax-dollar fed “judicial administrators,” social workers that George Orwell would marvel at.” “We’ve been delivering that message kindly for years now, yet the tide keeps rising on families in crisis. We’ve appealed to the county courts, state and local politicians, state judicial oversight bodies, United States Representatives, and just plain old human dignity, but the harassment and abuse of parents and children has only increased. A resort to federal court intervention in the widespread criminal collusion in state government was the next logical step.”

“It’s time to recognize Family Court for what it is—a corporate crime ring raiding parents and children of financial and psychological well-being, and devouring our children’s futures. And it’s not just divorce lawyers—its judges, “judicial administrators,” psychologists, cops and prosecutors—people we should be able to trust—in a modern day criminal cabal using county courtrooms and sheriff’s deputies as the machinery of organized crime.” Say Stuart. “Since state officials’ hands are too deep into the cookie jar to stop their own abuse, we’re seeking the assistance of federal oversight.”

CCFC has been active in past years uncovering fraud and abuse of families and children in state courts, including the consumer fraud case of Dr. Stephen Doyne, the most notable child custody elevator in San Diego. “They not only let Doyne run wild for years, they actively protected his abuse of parents and children. In my mind, the industry is a godless abomination” says Stuart. “One of our parents who challenged Doyne and lost was ordered—by the same court that employs Doyne—to pay Doyne’s attorneys fees—over $380,000—for calling out his undisputed fraud. It’s outrageous, and its going to stop.”

CCFC’s Complaint details both civil and criminal charges. “We’ve alleged over 34 specific federal crimes in the complaint, and we’re turning our evidence over to the F.B.I. and U.S. Attorney for further investigation.” Says Stuart.

The Complaint is available online through its facebook page at www.facebook.com/ccfconline details.

Quotes:

“The present-day suffering of so many parents and children has and is being wrought within a larger system characterized by a widespread institutional failure of—indeed contempt for—the rule of law.” “California legal institutions such as family courts and the legal community, professional institutions such as the state bar and psychology boards, and criminal justice institutions have in the recent decade gradually combined to cultivate a joint enterprise forum in which widespread “family practice” exceptions to the rule of law are not only tolerated, but increasingly encouraged. Professional behavior that would only a few years ago be recognized as unethical, illegal, or otherwise intolerable by American legal, psychological, law enforcement, or social work professionals has increasingly achieved acceptance—indeed applause—from institutional interests which benefit from a joint enterprise enforcing the unwritten law of “who you know is more important than what you know.” “In this lawless behavior’s most crass infestation, California Superior Court Family Division judges are regularly heard to announce, in open court, “I am the law” and proceed to act accordingly with impunity, indifference, and without shame.”

“The effect on parents and children seeking social support within this coalescing “family law” forum has not been as advertised by courts and professionals—a new healing—but instead a new affliction: an ‘imposed disability’ of de rigueur deprivation of fundamental rights in the name of ‘therapeutic jurisprudence’ funded by converting college funds into a bloated ministry of the bar leaving families and their children with mere crumbs of their own success.”

The case centers on the April 15, 2010 assault of CCFC’s President, Cole Stuart, at the San Diego County Bar Association meeting of family court judges and attorneys. Stuart was attending the meeting of family court judges and attorneys on behalf of CCFC. SDCBA recognized Stuart as the President of the Parents’ Rights group and ordered fifteen armed bar association security to tackle him, handcuff him, and throw him out.

According to Stuart, around ten CCFC parents and children attended the seminar to advance their reform efforts and send a message of “doctor, heal thyself.” The San Diego County Bar Association meeting of judges and attorneys chose a theme critical of their own clients: calling them “Litigants Behaving Badly.” CCFC chose a counter-theme: CCFC parents and children carried signs stating “JUDGES BEHAVING BADLY; if YOU don’t follow the law, why would WE?”

“Judge Judy may be entertaining daytime television for some, but that indignity has no place in our justice system—even in what they consider to be “low-brow” family court. Yet many family court judges regularly administer such obnoxious ‘renegade’ justice every day, in open defiance of the rule of law. ‘Sober as a judge’ these days has a whole new meaning.” Says Stuart—“I’ve been a successful lawyer for 18 years and seen both excellence and failure, but I’ve never been ashamed of my profession until the days I walked out of family court.” “I decided then that this lawless rolling train wreck of shame to my profession and harm to my community must stop. And for that inspiration, they sent me to jail.”

CCFC and Stuart are suing SDCBA and the dozen judges and lawyers who organized the seminar. “They were well aware of our intent to be present at the Seminar–and had fifteen Sheriff’s Deputies and a paddy wagon waiting to welcome us when we arrived. We had been in court to seek sanctions against them in the morning, then they assault me that very evening.

According to the CCFC Complaint: “Family Courts, including judges, blame “Litigants Behaving Badly” for harms enabled—indeed largely manufactured—by the Domestic Dispute Industry’s own longstanding predatory commercial practices. CCFC saw the “Litigants Behaving Badly” theme as part of the self-delusional propaganda engaged in by so many [divorce industry] members who, rather than recognizing the harm their industry enables and “healing themselves”, instead blame their own clients, who, quite true, do regularly abuse process, their loved ones, and even themselves—in perfect compliance with [divorce industry] instructions.”

The lawsuit alleges that divorce lawyers illegally conspire with judges to steal from parents as part of a racketeering criminal enterprise—and brings over 30 claims of federally-indictable crime. “Civil rights violations, fraud, and obstruction of justice are federal crimes—even for judges.”

The lawsuit seeks to hold judges and courts personally responsible for overseeing the crime committed by the attorneys and social workers in their courtroom. “Judges have a legal and ethical duty to ‘ensure rights’ under the judicial canons of conduct. It’s just not possible that intelligent lawyers like judges don’t understand exactly what goes on in their courtrooms, yet they allow it to continue. In CCFC’s opinion, this judicial collusion is far more serious crime than even the fraud of divorce attorneys themselves” says Stuart.

CCFC has filed a motion for a protective order preventing the San Diego Defendants from harassing them “Since they’ve known about CCFC and its reform toward the more humane family dispute resolution solutions we offer, they’ve treated us as enemies of the state. When we thought we’d be welcomed, or at least heard, we’ve instead become targets of prosecution and terrorist threats–They assaulted me, harassed our members including threatening “gun cock” and death threat late night phone calls, attacked our businesses, professional licenses, and threatened to jail and extort us with further crime. It’s outrageous that our own government allows this to happen, and we’re asking the federal court to protect our members as we pursue the civil and criminal charges against the courts.”

CCFC seeks to promote the health and success of all families–parents and children equally and alike. We perceive that parents and children presently lack effective and independent advocates within government and the civil and criminal justice system, and as such their rights and interests are regularly compromised in favor of the institutionalized interests of others, including government, private attorneys and professional service providers, and the enormous domestic dispute industry. CCFC organizers, officers, and affiliates are professionals dedicated to improving social, governmental, and justice system processes concerning domestic relations, child rearing, parenting, constitutional law, child custody, and domestic violence. Many of CCFC’s members are mothers, fathers, and children who have withstood abundant hardship resulting from the current practices of what is generally described as the “Family Law Community.” These injuries and insults include fraudulent, inefficient, harmful, and even dangerous services; an institutionalized culture of indifference to “clearly-established” liberties; insults to the autonomy and dignity of parents and children; extortion, robbery, abuse, and more, delivered at the hands of eager operators within the divorce industry.

Child Predator Services Taken to Task in Minnesota

Group of Minnesota parents calls for shutdown of Child Protective Services

 – A group is calling for a federal court to shut down Child Protective Services after claiming the agency takes children away from parents without due process.

“Stop Child Protective Services from Legally Kidnapping Children” filed a motion Tuesday for a permanent injunction to immediately close CPS, calling the agency’s practices unconstitutional.

Dwight Mitchell, who created the group, is on a crusade to stop what he calls “legal kidnappings.” He says his son was taken unfairly from him for 22 months. Mitchell says these stories may be hard to believe, but they are not uncommon at all.

“Our phones have not stopped ringing and our email inboxes are overflowing,” said Mitchell. “Our association had 250 members we have now grown to 1,265 in less than 30 days.”

Ten-month-old Zayvion has been away from Amanda Weber, his mother, in foster care for just over a week. The ordeal started when Weber took her son to the hospital with a cough. The doctor deemed him stable and notes show the diagnosis was, in fact, a cough. However, the recommendation was that the patient should have stayed. Weber took him home.

“After waiting, I had asked to leave because I wanted to put my kids to bed and I had my three-year-old with me and I asked if there was anything else that had to be done,” said Weber. “They said ‘No, there was no other testing or anything that needed to be done.’”

In a couple of days, police were at her door and took Zayvion to the doctor.

“She checked him out, all his vitals were stable,” she said. “They already had a foster parent in the room, in the room to remove my son before they ever proved … before they ever proved there was an emergency situation.”

Mitchell says he believes it all comes down to money.

THE PROBLEM: FATHER ABSENCE AND DIVORCE

NFI logoCreating a National Movement to End Father Absence and Connect Fathers to their Children, Heart to Heart              

Pre-founding: Early 1990s

By the early 1990s, a growing body of social science research was emerging that showed, a) there were record numbers of children living in father-absent homes in the United States, and b) these children were more likely than their peers in two-parent homes to suffer a number of negative outcomes across every imaginable measure of child well being.

But despite this growing, alarming evidence, the issue of “father absence” was largely “flying under the radar”; very few people and organizations were doing anything about it. For example, public policy was still largely focused on alleviating poverty for mothers and children. Additionally, social service agencies and civic organizations focused on families were almost exclusively set up to serve mothers and children. Finally, much of popular culture was marching on with the message of the “doofus dad” who often did more harm than good to his family.

Founding: 1993-1994

Don Eberly

Wade Horn

In the spring of 1993, Don Eberly, a prominent civil society scholar, organized a team of 20 of the nation’s leading social experts to meet in Aspen, Colorado to discuss strategies to build a society-wide movement to reverse father absence. Within a year of that pivotal meeting, National Fatherhood Initiative® (NFI) was formed with Wade Horn as its first president, David Blankenhorn as its first board chairman, a board of directors including leaders such as Dr. Louis Sullivan and George Gallup, and an advisory board made up of luminaries such as James Earl Jones, Willard Scott, and Bill Bennett.   

(All of these individuals are opportunists and could care less about fathers, mothers, children or justice!)

The Early Years: 1994-2002
NFI’s first decade was largely focused on two areas:

  • Public Education: Raising awareness in the government, entertainment, and social services sectors that fatherhood was an issue they needed to care about and take action on. For example, in 1997 in partnership with the Ad Council, NFI started the first national Public Service Advertising Campaign focused on fatherhood. Additionally, in that same year, NFI formed the first bi-partisan Congressional Task Force on Responsible Fatherhood.
  • Research: Knowing that solid social science research would be critical to “making the case” that fatherhood deserved the attention NFI was focusing on it, NFI began conducting and compiling research on the causes and consequences of father absence. This was exemplified by the creation of Father Facts, the first edition of which was published in 1995, and in its 6th Edition today. Father Facts was a comprehensive compilation of the social science research showing why children need good dads, and why so many children were without them.

Recent History: 2001-2012

While public education was critical to NFI’s beginnings (and remains so today), there was a growing sense that the “next phase” of NFI’s work would be to provide solutions “on the ground” to organizations at the nexus of children and families who were often dealing with the “consequences of father absence” (such as poverty and crime) in their neighborhoods.

Therefore, starting in the late 1990s, and taking off with the naming of Roland C. Warren as president in 2001, National Fatherhood Initiative® began to create a portfolio of high quality fatherhood skill-building materials to ensure that organizations around the country had the resources, knowledge, and training they needed to provide programs to help men be the best dads they could be. During this time, flagship NFI programs such as 24/7 Dad®, InsideOut Dad®, and Doctor Dad® were created, and NFI emerged as the #1 provider of fatherhood resources and the #1 trainer of fatherhood practitioners in the nation.

Today: 2013-Present

In 2013, Christopher Brown, who played a leading role in developing most of NFI’s flagship fatherhood programs throughout the 2000s, was named president. Under Chris’ leadership, NFI continues to be focused on providing the very best fatherhood resources and training to community-based, military, and corrections organizations across the country. NFI also continues to be a leading voice for responsible fatherhood, with a new emphasis on using social media and blogging to educate the public about the importance of involved, responsible, and committed fatherhood.

So what’s missing, let’s see, what could it be? Oh yeah, mothers!

In 1995, former President Clinton issued executive orders that directed federal agencies to review and “modify” all family programs and initiatives serving primarily mothers and children, to include fathers and “strengthen their involvement” with children.They took the so-called problem of absent fathers and instead of adding services and including fathers, flipped the narrative to remove mothers from the picture. Do we need the government to be involved in teaching fathers how to become “good dads”? Um, I don’t think so. But it did open up a new market for trainers to teach these skills to fathers, judges, attorneys, GAL’s etc. Here’s the problem. If you’re not a good father or mother, government isn’t going to change that!

By vilifying, leveling, and weakening people, an environment is created for social, political, and economic turmoil which produces change that will benefit the sponsors of this turmoil (Increasing the outreach and social work staffing, providing resource development, training and mentoring, and networking with other community agencies serving these families). If the government and news media relentlessly pursue issues of gender, race and diversity in preference to the real issues that need to be addressed, there will be an increasing division of society along the same lines. The attention is taken off the government entities that are robbing us blind through taxation.  Millions of dollars in funds are handed over to the States by the Department of Health and Human Services to family court connected nonprofits and GRANT DOLLARS = TAXPAYER DOLLARS

Statement on Efforts To Promote Responsible Fatherhood
January 19, 2001

At the same time the National Fatherhood Initiative was forming, welfare reform also took place.

The Commission supports federal policies (the Personal Responsibility and Work Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRA) and the Balanced Budget Act of 1997(BBA)) that have given states the opportunity to promote responsible fatherhood in several ways. Under the new welfare law, states can increase family income by:

1) providing employment and training to fathers;

2) increase child support collections; and

3) increase the distribution of child support collected on behalf of families receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy families (TANF). Funds allocated to the States from H.B. 3314 should be linked to and coordinated with State welfare reform initiatives to ensure maximization of funds and to eliminate duplicative programs.

Don’t think for a minute there wasn’t backroom planning and deals made before the dog and pony performance at the public hearing.    ↓

Family Court Corruption, Part 2: Fathers’ Rights and Conciliation Court Law: Federally funded misogyny and pedophile protection by Cindy Ross © 2/19/03

Excerpts: Numerous reports have identified bias against women and corruption in family courts across the country. In bizarre and illegal rulings, family court judges ignore or deliberately suppress evidence of male perpetrated family violence and child molest. Fathers who are batterers and sex offenders are routinely granted visitation and custody, while mothers and children trying to escape abuse are punished through financial sanctions, loss of custody, supervised visitation, jail and institutionalization. 

Very occasionally, men reporting abuse of their children have also been targeted for retaliation through family court. However, the systematic mishandling of domestic violence and child molest cases as “custody disputes” is based in a financial corruption scheme that calls for diverting grant program funding through “high conflict” cases, in the guise of promoting “fatherhood” and “shared parenting” post-divorce. Rather than assisting men become responsible parents, “Responsible Fatherhood”, “Access to Visitation Enforcement” (supervised visitation for noncustodial parents), “Child Support Enforcement” and similar federal programs perpetuate abuse of women and children through the legal system.

In the guise of reducing poverty and promoting child welfare, women are forced to stay married and mothers are punished for seeking divorces. In the guise of amicable custody resolution, federal programs enforce the systematic abuse of women and children. The pretense is that government programs produce responsible fathers and healthy families. The reality is that federally funded misogyny and pedophile protection programs are lining the pockets of corrupted court officials and appointees.

  • father's day Current statistics show that children suffer when their fathers are absent. This in no way suggests that HUD does not recognize the critical importance of mothers. The majority of public housing households with children are headed by single women who earn less than $9,000 annually, and they do a tremendous job of raising their children. However, according to statistics drawn from communities across the country, children raised in absent father families are more at-risk for a host of negative factors, including dropping out of school. The focus on Father’s Day is meant to be a starting point; either a celebration of existing relationships or a reason to form first connections.

    The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable housing for all Americans. As a part of creating strong communities, HUD is actively engaging families in a way that involves all family members—including fathers.

    The Department’s strategy utilizes housing as a platform for improving quality of life and engages HUD assisted tenants, including fathers, who are in need of quality affordable housing. Individuals are then able to access a broad array of services necessary for them to have meaningful access to opportunity and economic self-sufficiency, including education, healthcare, and job-training. HUD also works with local non-profits and NGO’s to strengthen the capacity of fathers to engage with their families, and of newly entering non-profits to work effectively with intermediary organizations and with fathers themselves, by offering them capacity building training and networking opportunities.


    Feds Spending $800,000 to Teach Responsible Fatherhood

    CNSNews.com) – The Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (AFC) is providing $800,000 in funding to create a Responsible Fatherhood Research Network.

    The initiative is described in the grant abstract as a “multi-year plan” designed “to disseminate information about good fatherhood parenting practices by building research and practice knowledge and capacity” and to “increase positive father involvement in the lives of their children.”

    The grant, announced on June 7 and open to applicants until Aug. 2, stated that the network, once established, “will be expected to have a primary focus on economically disadvantaged fathers and families and other under studied population groups.”

    In the grant announcement posted on the grants.gov website, the category of the funding was listed as “income security and social services.” The ACF website stated that the agency “administers more than 60 programs with a budget of more than $49 billion, making it the second largest agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.”

    CNSNews.com asked press officials at ACF a series of questions about the grant, but no response to the inquiry was received at press time.
    The questions asked were:

  • Why is it government’s role to improve parenting skills for fathers of low-income or at-risk children?
  • How is ACF going to measure and track the success of the network?
  • How many fathers and children will benefit from this project?
  • Will the recipients of this grant be private or public sector entities? –

    When calls are made for support of  slogans such as “There’s No Excuse for Child Abuse, Stop Child Abuse & Neglect, Remember the Children, It Shouldn’t Hurt to Be a Child”, etc. what is really meant is we need to educate the judges, attorneys and other court players as well as fathers, mothers and children on child abuse and domestic violence. Why? So they can get a piece of the federal funding pie. 

    Gender wars (both sides) have been exploited by “carpet-bagging” interests as if these interests were neutral, when they’re not.

    No mention of the federal funding of course!

    The court cartel is no different than any other cartel, they are tyrants who seek more power, more wealth and more control over people.  By keeping everyone at each other’s throats, they have effectively redirected the true root of the problem to everything but this fact – the same people that have created the problem have also created the solution! 

    The traditional nuclear family unit containing a father, mother and child(ren), now a minority in America, has also come under national assault, forced to taking a disfavored backseat to the statist propaganda and oppressive policies. Parents’ rights to teach their children their own individual values, their sense of morality and spiritual/religious convictions have increasingly been undermined and usurped by rigid statist PC dogma. As a licensed therapist for many years in Los Angeles, I can personally attest to the notorious abuses of overzealous authoritarian child protection services overstepping its rightful bounds by destroying families, unjustifiably yanking kids out of their family homes, inflicting children in their care and custody with lifelong trauma and abuse, misplacing children in unsafe home environments (be they with biological family, foster care, group home or residential care). A thoroughly overburdened, broken system that’s been set up to protect children is too often only abusing and re-victimizing them as part of a national assault on the American family. (Minus the broken system, it’s a good overview).

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Before they slip us all into their shackles, it’s time to come together as one formidable unified force to take action, arming ourselves with the truth and then spreading the power of that truth as far as it’ll take us. In the end evil will not defeat truth, honesty and justice. Joachim Hagopian is a West Point graduate and former US Army officer. 


    People have to think in terms of accounting and commerce, or it’s a lost cause. This situation is heading towards slavery which is possibly why people like Judge David Knutson are in positions of power.  Something needs to wake us up out of the brainwashed condition we are currently living  in.

    The basic concept is that the government OWNS (by investment, collectively) majority shares  in all major businesses  is a fundamental truth that should alter how we think and approach any arm of government including our courts.    https://familycourtmatters.org/

ILLEGAL REMOVAL OF CHILDREN

This case will definitely help shine the light on child predator services and the courts, however, once again, racial bias is the focus. The fact is  this is a system that is well designed to harm all families, regardless of race.

Lawsuit alleges Minnesota child welfare workers are illegally removing children from homes

In the civil rights suit, attorneys for a group of parents allege that Minnesota’s child protection laws are overly broad.

Star Jones wiped tears away as Dwight Mitchell talked Tuesday of his struggle to get his children back.

A group of Minnesota parents has accused state and county child protection agencies of wrongfully removing their children and placing them in foster care for what they consider to be ordinary parental discipline, such as spanking.

In a civil rights lawsuit filed Tuesday, attorneys for the parents allege that Minnesota’s child protection laws are overly broad, triggering unnecessary investigations and putting children at risk for being removed from safe and loving homes.

The main plaintiff in the case is Dwight D. Mitchell, who founded an association of parents called Stop Child Protection Services From Legally Kidnapping, which has about 250 members across the state. Mitchell alleges that two of his children were removed from his home in Apple Valley by Dakota County child protection workers after a family babysitter reported that his 11-year-old son had received a spanking from Mitchell for stealing and disobeying his parents.

“It was every parent’s worst nightmare,” said Mitchell, 57, a management consultant. “My children were legally kidnapped for a bottom spanking that was done out of love, because I want my children to grow up to be hardworking members of society.”

The child, Xander Mitchell, was kept in state custody for 22 months, during which time his father was refused all contact. Mitchell’s other child was removed for five months, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.

A spokeswoman for Dakota County declined to comment, saying the agency had not had a chance to review the lawsuit. A spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Human Services, which oversees the child protection system, also declined to comment, saying the agency had not been served with the lawsuit.

Subject: Guardian Ad Lietem Audit Release March 23, 2018 (last audit 1995)

 

Dear Parents Harmed by the GAL Program in family court:

I stand with you. And, I grieve with you too, over a broken and corrupt system that has harmed our children and changed us all forever.

Children denied a relationship with their loving parent and handed over to an abusive parent and then all contact cut off.

Childhood trauma caused by family court!

Results of Guardian ad Litem Program Evaluation Coming Soon

Since its inception, the Minnesota Guardian ad Litem Program has committed itself to giving abused and neglected children a strong voice in our court system.  The Program provides advocates who represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in court and are independent from the court and the child welfare system.  Guardians ad litem (GALs) are professionals who are paid staff or volunteers and are appointed by the Juvenile or Family Court to represent a maltreated child’s best interests in court proceedings. What it should say is the MN GAL Program has committed itself to giving abused and neglected children BACK TO THE ABUSER.


The results of our evaluation of the GAL Program will be released within the next few weeks.

Legislative Auditor Set to Review Programs that Oversee Vulnerable Minnesotans

Comment on Carver County Corruption Blog 2013

The courts themselves were set up and designed by a nonprofit organization of judges, attorneys, and psychologists — promoting mediation in particular — which started as (I’m going to state as fact because evidence seems to support this) as a slush fund (means of money laundering) IN the Los Angeles County Courthouse. People who accept and understand this will recognize the same behavior in action generations (of related nonprofits contracting with or running the courts) since, and adjust their responses accordingly.

Generally speaking, AFCC is favorable to (abusive) fathers’ rights, and the industries of supervised visitation, parent education, and of course as much custody evaluation as possible. A related organization NACC (based in Colorado) tries to get a GAL appointed wherever. From what I can tell, the GALs are rarely neutral.

In all of these groups, some of the money is made and control established through the trainings,, (CLE, GAL training etc.) which can be written off.

The presence in any jurisdiction of a “Conciliation court” and with it “Conciliation Code” (usually at state level) generally means that any “rebuttable presumption against custody going to a batterer” is a moot point — because that courtroom (and presiding judge) BY LAW grabs jurisdiction and decides to order all kinds of services; a.k.a. “fees for friends.” The goal of the AFCC (ca. 1963 founded) is to transform the language of criminal law into a behavioral health paradigm, which is for control and profit.   

Conciliation is about “reconcililation” (co-parenting, allegedly) and is not interested in criminal matters. We need to recognize this; it happened when no-fault divorce replaced actual criminal matters as a cause of divorce across the country, ca. 1970s.

What this means is that Lundy Bancroft’s “Batterer as Parent” material, while mostly true, is irrelevant in this context. Access/Visitation funding, that the child support system extorts some and rewards others at will for its own (and the states)’ profits IS. That an entire industry of responsible fatherhood money (Hundreds of millions) funded by the public (and private philanthropies adding to it) IS relevant. It’s a racket, which is good to at least be aware of. At least if this is identified and put on the table, those involved might at least RESPECT individual litigators, or fear being “outed” and perhaps in individual cases, someone higher up the ladder might toss out a lesser lackey to the crowds, as they did a GAL in Lackawanna County, PA (Danielle Ross) on tax evasion.

Not only state laws, rules of court, etc. are changed to accommodate some of these goals, but also federal welfare law (access/visitation, etc.) such that people the incentives of all involved to favor (a) churning the case; (b) stripping the family’s assets as treatments are ordered and (c) while preaching about best interests of the children and child support, actually compromising arrears by increasing “noncustodial parenting time) which helps “balance” the state/federal budget. EVERYONE seems to have a vested interest in doing the wrong thing.

I am sorry for your situation, BUT, you are hanging around in the wrong crowd. Lawless America is not going to tell the relevant story — it’s going to encourage you to tell your victimhoood story. Get your head out of that and start examining the people in your case, andd the groups operating in your area. All over the country people have had similar experiences (I have; I’m a DV survivor, there was an abusive “step” figure in mine. I hadn’t done anything wrong or illegal for a parent, and a whole lotta lying took place, easily disprovable, which no one (in the courts) cared about. A GAL diagnosed me (by mail) long-ddistance with zero meeting and when asked what her scope of service was (I had no idea at the time what GALs did) couldn’t or wouldn’t give me any answer. And it’s been more than two years of my not seeing the children).
On that FACTS sight, I took the ABA Commission on DV fact sheet into a courtroom; no one gave a hoot about it. The MOST relevant information you have up there is a broken link — to the California-NOW-Family-Court-Report-2002-2. It can be obtained on-line and includes the writing of Marv Bryer on the development of these courts.

What is happening IS evil, in my terms — but even evil has to be organized to function. If people are simply not willing to figure out how it is organized, then they are part of the issue. It may take a while to comprehend, but only by comprehending can you lobby by some other means than telling the public that bad things are happening in the courts (they’re already stressed and don’t understand how; and paying for the courts), or telling the courts that your kids are getting hurt.

I have high respect for NOW (was never a member) and one of the former members was a partial witness when my kids were stolen overnight. NOW should’ve kept that report on-line; perhaps someone could remind them. Most of my information is on the blogs; I participate iin this blog from time to time, or comments elsewhere to keep communicating this basic information. Again, just because a group of people agrees there is a problem doesn’t mean they are telling you everything relevant they know. Many of the advocacy groups simply are not; I guess they just like the publicity.

I have been over ten years post-separation and watched these things developed as well as been a single mother, then a noncustodial mother (networking with others) then identified what some of the networks were encouraging mothers NOT to talk about, and since then am more particular about who I hang out with. This issue affects the entire country and should be, I believe, presented in that light. Most people are at least concerned about what’s happening to their tax money, and if they understood that a $4billion a year industry (OCSE/child support) is being used to expand (not reduce) welfare roles through the family courts, that the religious elements are having a heyday with contracting with the courts, and getting rich off it, and that millions of dollars are getting lost in the cracks (which the HHS/OIG/OAS also admits), THEN perhaps there might be more public support to restructure the courts.

Sorry to lecture, but I think it’s simply inexcusable that too many of us who know better, have not made sure that women coming into the system at least get to “family & conciliation court 101” level before joining groups, telling their stories, and blogging. There really are some BASICS. Not to know — as that missing CANOW 2002 report (about 171pp doublespaced) showed, and a CANOW 2005 letter to HHS said — that the federal funding is affecting the local custody outcomes, and that even well to do families are being affected by programs which were initially aimed at low-income families (single black mothers, to be specific) — is simply, well, it’s a shame.

Look up Anne Stevenson’s Huffington Post Blog on 5 HHS programs dangerous to women and children for a quick rundown. Even father’s rights groups don’t like them. We have to understand the courthouses better, who’s funding them and who’s running them. It’s a great study, something you can explain to your children when you see them again; they will grow up sooner or later..

We already know America is Lawless and don’t need this movement to say so. The question is, what to do about it, and how. That requires following the money and which organnizations and means are directing it where. Sorry if this is a rant, hope it was helpful.

The website on THIS comment isn’t mine; it’s a group you should know about — thoroughly— if you are a mother in a custody challenge. They conference to get the HHS grants and have the US divided up into regions.It’d be good to know who’s active in your region. FYI, many of the affiliates don’t pay their taxes or stay filed right; that may be some leverage we have to protest their getting that “marriage/fatherhood” funding. Judges, lawyers, “Bishops” (COGIC) and others are involved. Jeffrey Leving, Esq. of Chicago is a sponsor of the group which itself got started with Fathers’ Rights funding initially ca. 1994 in Arizona. Notice 1994 was right before 1996 welfare reform, and when the National Fatherhood Initiative (nonprofit ggetting HHS and private funding, Wade Horn, Daniel Blankenhorn, etc.) was formed and from which we now have a major federal program, taken for granted like a coat of new paint in the room. People pushing this KNOW that the public will just adjust and accept, rather than protest and shut down.etc. (My home blog available on other comments on this thread.)
