Family courts practicing medicine without license results in destroying kids & family finances for profit

One of the biggest injustices in the courtroom is the unauthorized practice of medicine.  What I mean by that is that everyone thinks they are mental health experts, although none went to medical school.  Guardian Ad Litems (who are lawyers by statutes – we’ll get to that in future legislation.) have no problem with diagnosing parents and children, even though the GAL/Lawyer has absolutely no training in mental health, nor are licensed to practice medicine.  Hell, every lawyer in the courtroom has no problem with diagnosing the opposing Party’s clients and the children.  Now I know that many of you think that the judges do the same.  No they don’t.  They weigh the evidence (I know, that is arguable), listen to the experts (okay, maybe not) then makes a legal Finding.  I really wish I could bad-mouth judges here, but I can’t.  Well, maybe I can because for them to get to this point they should follow certain rules and procedures regarding evidence and testimony before making a Finding. Being Family Court, they do not.

 

Ignoring most of the above, what does this have to do with HB4113?  It’s that the lawyers of the ISBA and the Family Court judges are calling legislators and telling the legislators that Illinois HB4113 is not in the “best interest” of children.  Hmm, we see boatloads of (real) experts (mental health professionals) saying that shared-parenting is in the “best interest” of children, then we have the legal folks who make tons of money creating fights between parents over children by weighing-in on something they have no knowledge of.

 

Judges and lawyers (ISBA) are not mental health professionals.  Not even close.  “Best interest” is a mental health issue.  So when a judge/ISBA is stating that a certain Bill (HB4113) is not in a child’s best interest, but the parents’ best interest, we should point out that “best interest” is mental health determination, and that neither the judge, lawyers, or ourselves are mental health professionals (unless we are).  And if you are a mental health professional, or have some training (educators?), then say that you have knowledge of the field.

 

As a side note:  My belief is that judges who advocate in support/oppose legislation are in violation of Separations of Powers under the Constitution.  But we already know that Constitutional Issues are ignored in the Family Courts.  So why would we be surprised that judges would ignore the Constitution outside the Courtroom?  Strangely, I rarely hear of non-Family Law judges weighing-in on legislative matters, much less weighing-in as aggressively as Family Law judges do.

50/50 parenting should be the default position in divorce – think about it!

with 16 comments


Divorce courts in America are destroying any chance of maintaining the children’s mental health by interfering with parenting, promoting conflict by discouraging mediation and encouraging that a divorce should be an adversarial proceeding, as well as encouraging the racketeering that goes on when judges enrich court-appointed attorneys, counselors and therapists by appointing them in an open-ended instead of limited fashion and only  when necessary.

Courts are the wrong place for divorce decisions to be made as they are inherently an adversarial proceeding.  We need mediation outside of the court to be the default position in any dissolution of a marriage, particularly if it involves children. We need a complete  overhaul of laws related to dissolution of marriage, as well as about probate issues such as guardians for elders – another area of court abuse of families.

Judges, lawyers, and most of the court-appointed hacks knows as GALs, child representatives, and evaluators (often who make their business promoting conflict to draw out their appointment and make more money in this cottage industry) end up raping the estates of families and even taking the children’s college funds to pay for their fees.

Instead of promoting stabilization and financial security, the judges and lawyers work hard to end careers, teach children to be entitled and view parents as only deep pockets, promote parental alienation and defamation, as well as destroy the very stability necessary for a child to cope with divorce.

We need to ask Pres. Obama to make a task force on dissolution of marriage, paternity issues, and probate issues so that our country can advance socially as much as we have advanced technologically. We need to stop the court abuse of children, the elderly, and families in general.

Sign a petition to ask  President Obama to appoint a task force to study divorce, child custody, family mediation, and ways to take divorce out of the courts, end court abuse, and let parents decide how to parent. Cleck here for petition.

With the dissolution of the family, the mobility that is breaking up the family, and the greed of the divorce cottage industry, we have a very big crisis in America, and around the world.  We need to lead in solving this problem.  Write President Obama and ask him to make this task force his priority in his second term.

The following two videos are powerful messages about the role of fathers and the need for equal  parenting.

Abuse of families and children with unverified heresay

The truth about court sanctioned child protective (DCFS) workers and child representatives in divorce court

with 2 comments


This video gives a clear picture about how the system works everywhere in this country. It can’t be fixed with a little tweet. Drastic measures are needed. You can substitute “child representative” for the title “child protective worker” [AKA DCFS agent] as they do the same thing!

In Cook County divorce court it is Judge Haracz among other judges who rubber-stamps the fraud by the CPS worker or the child representative or guardian ad litem.

Join us in protesting against the system and demanding change on the North side of the Daley Center in Chicago on August 12, 2011 – or in other major cities – see govabuse.org.

A message to corrupt Cook Count Court judges! Stop corruptly diverting billions from social security

with one comment


We’re not going to take it anymore!

You’ll see!

View official protest song for August 12, 2011 nationwide protest August 12, 2011 against corrupt family courts and child protective services, who have diverted billions from social security Title IV funds to enrich judges and court appointed attorneys and child representatives.

We are fed up with destruction of families and children by corrupt courts dragging out divorce and child protection cases, ordering unnecessary evaluations, allowing unproven false allegations against a parent to deprive the parent of custody and unsupervised visitation.

We demand an immediate stop to payments to these corrupt persons and to denial of due process in divorce and child  custody proceedings!

For more information see this link.
