Alert the new administration to the family court crisis - here is the website and talking points

Message  PapaThème le Mar 20 Jan 2009 - 15:51

Dear Friends,

Change is coming. Please send your story to http://change.gov/page/s/yourstory (thanks to Victoria and others for alerting us to this site). The main points could be (use your own words or feel free to use the following):

A new form of pernicious violence against women and children is rampant in our country.

  1. Across the country, family courts are removing children from parents (mostly mothers) who are trying to protect them from physical and sexual harm. Even nursing infants are torn from their non-abusive mothers. Courts are placing these children in the custody of the very parents whom the children insist are abusing them. Protective pare nts are bankrupted trying to protect their children from batterers and molesters, who use family courts to obtain custody of their victims and avoid prosecution. The right of parental access trumps the right of child safety.

  2. Family courts have become lawless star chamber proceedings with no due process or checks and balances. Courts have unfettered power with no effective oversight that would ensure that children are safe from physical and sexual harm. Appeals are ineffective because they are lengthy, prohibitively expensive, and do not address child safety concerns.

  3. Because of our government’s complete lack of responsiveness to these violations of child safety, a petition was filed with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Older children are speaking out about their court-ordered abuse, which in some cases is comparable to third world rape and torture camps.

  4. We need Federal hearings and investigation to bring this hidden problem to light,20to return the children to their protective parents, and to hold accountable the perpetrators and the systems that enable and order their abuse.

  5. In my case (a few sentences of the most egregious events in your case. You can even provide photos and videos.)
    If you include the names, county, state of those who harmed your child, there is always a concern about retribution if the court somehow finds out. You could always state that you fear retribution and are using a pseudonym, which is a powerful and accurate statement.

Here is a great article that might help if you want to add more information.

Holding family law judge McBrien accountable

Message  PapaThème le Mar 27 Jan 2009 - 20:17

Dear Friends, We urge you help hold a family law judge accountable for his gross misconduct by attending this hearing if you possibly can.

The California Commission on Judicial Performance instituted formal proceedings to inquire into matters concerning Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Peter J. McBrien. A hearing will begin on Monday, February 9, 2009, at 9:00 a.m. at the Third District Court of Appeal at 914 Capitol Mall in Sacramento, CA. The hearing is open to the public.

Please go to www.cjp.ca.gov and www.recallmcbrien.org for more information.

Thanks, Connie
