Having gone through a custody contest in family court, it is my opinion that in fact family courts are destroying the U.S. family. What became
apparent is that the family court system is a business that survives by breaking up families. Not happy with your life, come to us and we can make
your spouse, who of course is the cause of all of your problems, go away, and we will give you a large portion of all of his or hers money, future
earnings, and make you the supreme boss over your children. Why compromise with your spouse when we can force your spouse to do everything we demand
him or her to do.
Then, these courts drag on and on, you are lucky if you ever get to a trial, and all the laws are essentially ignored. You must pay a lawyer to get
any access into the system, and there is no limit on how much they can charge. Want to keep seeing your kids? Start paying us lots of money, or your
children can grow up without one parent, who might be the abusive one. I know the local family court gave not one concern about who was telling the
truth or who might be the abusive parent. The parent who files first, gets the ball rolling, gets first dibs as reward for bringing in the new
This might sound harsh, but this is how these family courts operate.
