Nationally Bar/Ban Parental Alienation

Judges, Lawyers, and Child Custody: A Recipe for Disaster - The alienation of one parent by the other often goes unnoticed by the courts because most of the judges and lawyers have not been trained to identify the signs of parental alienation. On average, in looking at the biographies and credentials available for many family court judges and lawyers, you find a lot of the same type of educational degrees, legal backgrounds and superficial accolades. While everything has exceptions, rarely do you see evidence where those in power have any specialized training or in psychology, children, and parenting. This is alarming considering the courts claim they act and make decisions under the banner of a child’s best interests. Many decisions get made in favor of one parent over another based on motion filings and hearsay. There is seldom any neutral evaluation by a third-party trained to identify the psychological aspects of custody and divorce. Such an expert would be better suited to assess parents and children and uncover signs of alienation. Combine this with the many unethical and manipulative tactics used by lawyers and players in custody and divorce ordeals and you have a recipe for disaster. We the people have entrusted individuals who, by their very nature and training, are prone to adversarial conflict in the form of litigation and courtroom displays to make decisions and steer outcomes regarding a child’s well-being. It is in this way that children often become more like pawns on a chessboard, as opposed to having their best interests genuinely prioritized and safeguarded. Given the sensitivity of these types of cases and the many public outcries—complaints and ethical concerns raised about those sitting on the bench and practicing in the matrimonial bar—it begs the questions as to what type of individuals find this area of law appealing? Even more than practicing law in the divorce and custody arena, it would be interesting to know the psychological profile of those who run political campaigns to be elected as judges in it. These are courts whereby the lawyers’ and judges’ very livelihoods are dependent upon a steady and reliable stream of cases with outcomes resulting in negative repercussions. With a divorce industry estimated to pull in approximately $50 billion annually by many accounts, one has to wonder if the allure by some judges and lawyers to this area of law is truly based on serving a child’s best interests or protecting and preserving their own. It seems quite dumbfounding as to why tougher screening methods and stricter barriers are not in place for those making rulings or practicing law in the arena of child custody and divorce.

Abolish Probate And Family Court

Dear Sylvester Stallone: We enjoyed your movie series “The Expendables.” This open letter builds upon that theme by alerting you to a real life story involving “expendables” in our nation’s domestic relations courts. I refer of course to good fathers relegated to that lower class of citizen known as a “non-custodial parent” and made to exercise an archaic form of parenting known as “visitation.” Such an exercise is more appropriate for prisons and funerals, not children and families. An insidious trend continues to develop across our country whereby fit and loving fathers are marginalized, alienated and even removed from their children’s lives in order to feed a trillion dollar government industry. This industry thrives on orchestrated conflict, needless litigation and federal incentive grants that reward judges, lawyers and our state governments based on the number and magnitude of child support orders manufactured in these courts. Such orders are dependent upon an unequal scheme of parenting classifications and otherwise threatened by any shared parenting law routinely suppressed by political insiders and bar associations. It is a trend which requires heroic action of a different kind. I am very respectfully asking you to assemble a team of celebrities in support of a fathers rights cause which could awaken our nation to a serious epidemic with lasting benefits for generations to come. To that end, I have released an extensive report based on my experience as a father and trial attorney which contains an action plan for a fathers day rally in Washington D.C., a writ before the Supreme Court filed the same week and a political action committee which requires financial support. Entitled “We Are Fathers,” it is being shared among high profile figures and the public generally over the viral internet. https://leonkozioljd.wordpress.com/2015/03/11/an-open-letter-to-sylvester-stallone-and-the-expendables-in-support-of-fathers/
