Imagine you live a normal middle class life. Then, one day your spouse files for divorce and refuses all reasonable settlements. You are sucked into family court where you are certain to lose your time, your money, your property and your children, espeically if you live in California's prestigous Silicon Valley, where tech dominates and sports cultures of the Giants, 49ers and Warriors rule.
Imagine you send your child to the prestigous Stanford University where witnesses catch a young frat boy raping your daughter, which you only learn about from the news. Then when a jury convicts the rapist and a judge gives the rich rapist Stanford student only six months in jail you learn the world is outraged, but the local courts and laws do nothing to address the victimization of your daughter. #ThanksJudgePersky
Imagine your son moves across country and marries a woman you later find manipulated him only to have a child. The woman then uses family courts to get your son put in jail for posting text messages from his former wife onto a family law blog, and that were already in the public family court files. #ThanksJudgeMills
Imagine you don't have the money to afford a lawyer and a family court judge awards custody of your daughter to her father, a known sex abuser, and you then learn the father drugged , raped and killed your daughter after you were denied legal representation to protect her. #ThanksJudgeMills
Imagine you are raped by a famous NFL football player, or beaten by that player as you are engaged to marry him and are pregnant with his child, and the 49er organization and the Santa Clara County DA threaten you from coming out to make charges. A judge in your custody case ignores outright criminal conduct of your ex, and even gives legal custody to your ex , without a hearing and with no regard for the law. You then find out the judge had been kicked out of the State Bar, for ethics issues, and is known to other judges to be the one willing to harm women and children in order to protect attorney misconduct and fees. #ThanksJudgeTowery
Imagine a judge joins the Grandma of your ex to your custody case, then is able to throw you in jail , when you are five months pregnant, because you failed to out your sick child on a plane to visit his grandma , as a custody order requires you to do. #ThanksJudgeGrilli
Family court abuse in our personal lives that serves to violate the civil rights of our citizens, must stop. Lawyers and Judges in family cases are out of control. The average Silicon Valley divorce that used to cost $10,000 is now costing $1,000,000 and this is one of the greatest threats to the future of our children.
This website focuses on family courts in Sacramento, Contra Costs and Santa Clara County. We are closely affiliated with members of similar groups up and down the state, Sacramento being most active with their work in the documentary Divorce Corp. and recent Cover Story by Sacramento News and Review.
Our goal is to attract investigative reporters and members of mainstream media willing to reveal the systemic dysfunctions in California's Family Courts . We fight to facilitate changes in laws and policies that prevent the county courts from acting as courts of equity. Our focus is to ensure BOTH parties in a divorce are afforded lawyers to assure property is fairly divided such that judges can not allow children to be used as weapons for a profiteering enterprise concealed as family courts.
Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, once said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
