Secret Courts In Florida - Judicial Watch

Children's Rights
Judges in Florida have for years created secret dockets to hide the court cases of the rich and famous and now the state’s Supreme Court Chief Justice wants to end the unorthodox practice that he calls un-American. Broward County, Florida (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Several counties throughout the state have a so-called secret judiciary, but…Read More
Giving full authority to one parent over the other does not and cannot work. It instantly devalues that parent and teaches the child to do the same.

Indeed, much controversy swirls around the very mention of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). Since no DSM criteria exists…Read More
