Eliminating the concept of routinely making awards of custody of children whenever their parents do not live together admittedly would be a radical departure from thousands of years of legal tradition. It may not be something that can be achieved overnight, or  with a single stroke of a pen. Nevertheless, at a time when nearly every country in the world takes pride in itself for conceiving of children as human beings rather than property, it could be worthwhile for more policy-makers to give serious consideration to moving away from the routine judicial practice of making what amount to declarations of child ownership anytime two parents do not live together. ~ Should Custody Law Be Abolished?


The Family Court System operates behind closed doors with special access granted. The American people have been shut out. An American in the United States can walk into any court proceedings in a Criminal Courtroom and or proceedings in a Civil Courtroom and sit in the audience...BUT...try that in Family Court.

We respectfully urge the News Media to give this massive (Divorce) industry of $50 BILLION DOLLARS a year, the critical attention it deserves in order to inform the people and shine a light on the injustice occurring in Family Courts that would inevitably, fundamentally alter the ANY economy and threaten jobs.  Because of the the increasing use of various electronic devices including phones, tablets, and other wireless communication devices continually challenges a court’s legitimate concerns for courtroom security, participant distraction, and decorum.  These electronic devices are redefining the news media, the informational product disseminated, and the timeliness of the content. They also result in new expectations for the court and participants for immediate access to information. Policies developed to address the court’s concerns should include enough flexibility to take into consideration that electronic devices have become a necessary tool for court observers, journalists, and participants and continue to rapidly change and evolve. The courts should champion the enhanced access and the transparency made possible by use of these devices while protecting the integrity of proceedings within the courtroom.  The television news media should be playing a vital role in informing the American people about the far-reaching and troubling implications if there in NO FAMILY LAW REFORM.  A recent study by a public watchdog group found that there has been virtually no televised news coverage in the past six months. Given the secret nature of Family Court proceedings and the virtual blackout from television news networks, the American people remain largely unaware of Civil Rights Violations, Due Process Violations, even Human Rights Violations and its effects on our country. Our nations must have a thorough public debate. Let us make the politicians and media aware of all the knowledge we have of Family Court and Child Protection injustices, Rather then debating between ourselves we need to expand the range of awareness to those ill informed on our subject!

THE PROCESS:  FAMILY JUSTICE REFORMED:  Separating Parents should BOTH be eligible for (£500 in) Legal Aid so as to arrive at a conciliatory process for the ultimate benefit and security of the children and should submit their claims simultaneously to an Arbitration Service such as ACAS for a jointly agreed order referring to:-

  • Shared Care
  • Parental Responsibility
  • Contact (Review-able when a Child reaches Age 11)
  • Residency
  • Financial Settlement and Maintenance
  • This Contract should be binding and presented to a Senior Judge who will also confirm this is Legal and Binding and up to both parties to ensure it works otherwise it is enforceable on each Parent. 
  • Solicitors and Barristers would not be required at this stage as there would be no disputes and therefore would not need to be perpetuated. 
  • Social Services and CAFCASS need not apply, unless there is a history of Violence, Abuse or threat to the Childrens’ Welfare by EITHER Parent. 
  • If the Judge has any concerns he should have access to the Family's medical history and thereafter order an investigation so as to prevent false allegations arising at point of separation.  
  • Once it is made clear that this order is binding and enforceable on BOTH Parents, should they wish to return matters to Court it will have to be at the individuals’ own expense as no future Legal Aid will be available and this should focus minds by all concerned to get it right first time.  I have sought to remove the financial incentives and conflict from the Family Court so there would be very rare need for Solicitors, Barristers and social services there! 
  • Grandparents should also have rights of access after separation, but where possible to have access to coincide with the Parents Contact, but above all to be there to show support, stability and continuity to very young children. 
  • Children's schooling should not be disrupted and both Parents should stay in close contact with the School as often as possible.   Parents should also keep the Children with the same Family GP and notify each other of any concerns that may occur during their respective contact times.
