There is a very frightening reality these days for moms considering divorce. It’s a reality that numerous women assembled at the Monmouth County Superior Courthouse in New Jersey today are determined to raise awareness about, in hopes, of inciting change while calling the competency of judges such as Judge Paul Escandon in question.
Like Judge Paul Escandon, a number of judges are on the hot seat for being allegedly biased against mothers and ruling in the favor of fathers in divorce and custody proceedings. And whereas, in some cases, such rulings are warranted, in others, they are not.
The peaceful protest rallying together in Monmouth County Monday was doing so to protect “Abused Children Of Divorce and Separation.” These moms are seeking to have courts dig deeper into cases and become more educated in determining divorce and custody rulings that meet the optimum needs of the children involved. The claim is that the manner in which Family Court handles these cases is not only archaic but in certain “high conflict” situations, the manner is barbaric. High conflict cases comprise many meanings, folks, including granting custody to documented abusers and pedophiles.
Pauline Hanson's One Nation party went to last year's federal election with a policy of abolishing the Family Court and replacing it with a tribunal of "mainstream Australians".
The Turnbull government is expected to shortly commence the biggest review of the Family Law Act since it was introduced in 1976, amid pressure from Pauline Hanson to address the rights of fathers under the Act.
Questioned by Senator Hanson at a Senate committee hearing on Friday, Attorney-General George Brandis indicated the terms of reference for a review by the Australian Law Reform Commission would be released shortly, saying that the government wanted to hold the widest possible review of the workings of the Act.
The price for a mothers own safety and freedom in 1996 was an imposed, unnatural and unwanted separation from my eight children, including my nursing infant. The injustice committed against her is not just the physical separation from her children, but the willful desecration of the mother-child relationship and bond, a sacred spiritual and emotional entity.
Many mothers who seek safety from abuse are routinely prohibited from having even the most basic contact with their own children, not because they were unfit parents, but because they were outspent, out represented, and out-maneuvered in a court atmosphere that seems to favor those who inflict domestic violence.
Queensland Police Commissioner, Ian Stewart, get off your pedestal !! #Leak75 - We have a BIG problem with Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart! The attached news report is an indication of the type of person who has been elected into office and this is only a part of the problem! (Click to view)
This so-called "leader" is a law unto himself and is NOT doing his job. A man in his position who has the attitude of “it is my way or the highway“ is someone totally lacking in leadership qualities ! We also call into question his professionalism(or should we say – lack thereof) and call on him to step down off his pedestal, admit to the fact that he is exhibiting qualities that do not match those expected of a policeman in his position.
How can someone who professes to be a professional policeman. ..
MAKE A JUDGEMENT on a case where he admits to :-
NOT having viewed tapes of a police interview between one of his officers, child safety and the mother?
NOT viewed the interview between the children and the the police, child safety?
REFUSES to accept the analysis by a qualified individual of the interview, said interview not having been watched by himself?
NOT having read any of the supervisor’s reports of abuse by the father?
NOT having viewed ANY of the other police and child safety interviews of the girls?
What an abject display of ignorance by this so called leader Ian Stewart! The fact that a child, YES A CHILD, has a sexually transmitted infection and a bleeding anus is of NO concern to him. It really says it all doesn’t it?
These orders were made by a Newcastle Judge against an innocent man who just wants to spend time with his children and who made it quite clear that he has no faith in our court systems ... Gee, I wonder why. Loughnan gave everybody reason to be scared of injustice in our family courts after seeing this :
You see, for the lovely little chump to do this, he can then prevent the father from bringing any more matters into the court without a Legal Appointed Guardian, who is at no obligation to do what he asks. This man MAY pay for his own lawyer but Loughnan has prevented him using anything but government paid crooks which will not help him.
But wait ... and to add insult to injury, there's more :
CHILD protection campaigners say women who accuse their former partners of sexually abusing their children are being unfairly labelled as mentally ill in the Family Court.
Child sex abuse researcher Freda Briggs and child protection advocate Charles Pragnell say recent cases show the emphasis on shared parenting responsibilities is putting Professor Briggs and Mr Pragnell are part of the Safer Family Law campaign and argue that amendments to the Family Law Act in 2006 were geared towards the rights of parents rather than those of children.
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.
This web page has been set up as a result of “ LEAKS “ that WikiDetectives has received over the last couple of weeks . Said “ LEAKS “ have led WikiDetectives into calling for a reinvestigation into the Watter Twins court case to enable the truth to come out so that these poor children may return to a normal lifestyle .
There appears to have been gross mismanagement and corruption by the authorities concerned and this applies in particular to the police and the judges .
Study: About 32,000 pregnancies result from rape each year
The Rape Survivor Custody Act would encourage states to strip parental rights from rapists
When an Ohio judge denied a request for Cleveland kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro to visit the 6-year-old girl he fathered with one of the women he kidnapped and raped, the reason seemed pretty clear cut.
Life-changing decisions about the care of thousands of children are routinely being made on flawed evidence from poorly qualified ‘experts’ in the family courts, a damning study reveals.
More than a fifth of these vital reports are being produced by people who are completely unqualified, the Channel 4 News investigation found. ‘Experts’ used in hundreds of family court proceedings are frequently unqualified or unreliable, the study reveals.
In some cases, reports on parents or children are being given to courts by doctors who have not even seen the individuals concerned.
Richard Chisholm, a former Family Court judge, says the consequences are tragic when the court gets it wrong.
Lucy was just 10 when she asked her mother if a girl like her could get pregnant. The childish question hid the terror and the trauma of what was happening to her. Still, Lucy, not her real name, hoped her mother might pick up the clue she was trying to give her, without revealing her father’s secret. But her mother didn’t get it.
The secret was that her father had begun raping Lucy in his bed when she went on Family Court-ordered access visits to his house in a regional Australian town.
Revelations about Lucy’s ordeal have raised questions about the Family Court’s heavy reliance on expert reports to determine the veracity of sexual abuse allegations.

When Erin saw the police lights flashing, she knew it was over. She steered the car to the side of the road, and turned to her two children. “OK guys, this is it,” she said. “We’ve done our best.”
Her teenaged daughter started to panic. “Fuck! Oh my god!” she cried. “I can’t do this. You can’t leave us!” She grabbed for the bottle of Panadol in the centre console, insisting she wanted to die. “No!” Erin said firmly. “Settle, just settle.”
Mothers are being blackmailed into shared parenting in the Family Court 'Magellan List'.
My name is Maurice Kriss and I am the President of the National Child Protection Alliance of Australia. (NCPA) The National Child protection Alliance is a registered charity and nonprofit organisation dedicated to the protection of Children and Young people from abuse and neglect. It was formed by researchers, academics, child welfare/ protection professionals, advocates for children, children's lawyers and parents to promote the Rights of the Children under the UN conventions.
I was first admitted to The New South Wales Bar as a barrister in 1988. I predominantly practiced in the Criminal field of Law. Until, in 2007, when I was asked to appear for a mother who was appearing in the Family Court in Canberra. She alleged that her 3-year-old son had been anally assaulted by the child's father. The mother in this case lives on the South Coast of New South Wales. This case launched me into a new pathway in law.
From that time onwards, my life took on a new direction. I joined the NCPA where I was asked to assist a number of mothers who had their children taken from them by the Family Court after reporting that their children had been sexually abused by their husband or partner and handed to the abuser. I was asked to assist mothers in all States of Australia excluding the Northern Territory. For the following eight years I appeared in these states mostly pro-bono. It was during these Court cases that I noticed a distinct pattern of corrupt conduct of the Family Court whereby the mothers were treated with abuse and disrespect. They were called liars and accused them of coaching their children to lie. The fact that very young children at the time were bleeding from the anus or vagina did not move police or Child Protection Authorities into doing proper investigations into the complaint of child sexual abuse.
Judge Jarret and his circus of Court Reporters including Anthony Smith have "New Ways of Making You Speak". We'll make it simple for those of you who haven't had to endure the Dark Side of the Family Court... It seems these days that the solution for children that do not want to go to visit their abusive parent, is to accuse the mother (generally) of alienating the child from the father, coercing the child, coaching the child, and then to force that child to then live full-time with the other parent.
Furthermore, to ensure the fullest extent of Stockholm Syndrome is endured by the child, both the magistrates and court reporters and ICL's collude together and prevent the child from having any contact with the mother for at least (generally) six months. This is to ensure that the child realises that no matter what, there will always be abuse, that the government will ensure that the child will no longer have the protection of his or her mother, and that protecting your child from any sort of abuse is futile.
A father recently appeared in a UK Family Court, representing himself in a custody dispute.
He made his argument, quoting a judgment sent to him by a well-known fathers' support group.
The opposing barrister pulled him up – claiming the case he had mentioned had never appeared in the law reports. The father was made to look a fool and a conman, and the angry judge warned him he could face up to $20,000 in court costs.
But when the source of the offending email quoting the forged case was finally traced, it turned out to have been sent by the wife's barrister – who is now scheduled for a court appearance for perverting the course of justice.
