Mother dies of stress and lies from family court

​We are sick and tired of the family courts making statements without evidence, or proof.  Sadly most people by now have forgotten about Hayley Gascgoine, the young mother who died five minutes before the judge gave the verdict. Many professionals said her death was not caused by stress, it was other factors, or something else, - or even down to using drugs because she went to the toilet, previous to her collapse.
The toxicology report proved that she was clear.  Our professionals cannot be trusted, not in any aspect, not one word.  No one who has not witnessed, or been a part of the family court process has a clue about just how abusive these environments are.
