As America focuses on children of illegal immigrants being separated from their parents, communities across the country are focusing on the lawyers, judges and CPS workers using the courts to take children from parents and grandparents everyday.
Turns out that at the heart of the issue is a core group of lawyers, many who are regularly appointed by the court to act for the children, and most whom make ungodly amounts of money in fees, paid both from public and private funds.
These fees appear in supervised visitation orders, custody expert reports and minor's counsel appointments, the greatest kickback sham leading a path to the underground economy where lawyers and judges are pimping out custody and support orders in communities across the country.
The Public has been asleep, and naive, when it comes to what is happening to children in America's family courts. Parents are being jailed when they are unable to pay support, while other parents are bring given a free pass to play keep away in the custody games if represented by the right lawyer.
Most people have no idea that parents are being ordered to pay to see their own children. These payments can be up to $150 an hour to see their own children, as courts have few resources to get families back together. The incentive is for lawyers and judges to make money and increase their power by keeping kids in the system, and parents fighting to see their own kids.
Most alarming is that for the past decade, children have been ordered by judges to go to reunification camps. These are private businesses and for profit entities that lock kids away in hotel rooms, or private properties where they are deprived of food, water, and sleep until they agree to give up their relationship with one parent, usually the one who has no money to hire a lawyer during a divorce of custody case.
Look to the lawyers using these camps as a modern form of child abuse.
Meanwhile, parents who have money can dodge support obligations, conceal domestic violence and get out of violating court orders with ease. It is rigged and the media refuses to report what is going on in communities across America.
The problem is being funded with public money, and few reporters are willing to follow the money in local communities as all are being assigned to only look at Trump.
The media's war on Trump has directed public attention away from community transparency, so social media, rapid response protests and voter populations are taking to cleaning up local governments and family courts to protect kids at a local level.
An audit of five California counties shows that a few lawyers , known as the " in crowd " , can dominate family law cases where children are used like pawns for divorce profiteers. These lawyers are regularly appointed as minor's counsel, referees and special masters, usually after working as pro tem judges to assist incompetent judges.
This modern pattern and practice as slowly crept into local courts to create a toxic culture. Protests over guns, immigrants and issues impacting women are finally putting family courts on the public radar.
Silicon Valley's Judge Aaron Persky is an example of public outrage over America's courts.
In a June 2018 landslide vote, Persky was the first California judge recalled in over 80 years, a recall fueled by the sentencing of Brock Turner and the #metoo movement that took on California's judiciary and legal culture. A recall that was covered more in the national press than the San Jose Mercury. Persky was a family court judge who separated families long before he was assigned to the criminal courthouse.
Children and parents will continue to face a lifetime of harm from dealing with bad family courts that wrongfully separated children from their parents. This harm is now being discussed on a national level based on the current immigration issues.
The harm suffered by BOTH parents and children who are legally separated can be seen in the form of :
Inability to form Meaningful Relationships
Increased Risk for Dropping Out of School
Increased Drug / Alcohol Use Risk
Lack of Trust
Permanent Financial Oppression
Children who grew up in divorce and endured an army of : Special Masters, custody evaluators and lawyers appointed for the children, are rarely reunited with their parents. They age out of the system, losing their family wealth and support in the process.
Court files show these children often end up with a more abusive parent, and alienated from a parent who had no money to keep up in the legal system.
Most disturbing are the parents who are branded in court, rendering them unable to bring claims of pedophilia and child abuse. These parents are discredited merely because they didn't have the right lawyer, or because they tried to speak out to protect their children.
These parents and their children are sent to a life sentence because of the deeply flawed courts.
As immigration causes these issues to be discussed on a national level, activistists are focusing on California counties and lawyers to bring the message to the public in a manner that helps all of America's children, not just the children at the border.
Protests are currently planned in Martinez for June 28 and nationwide on June 30. Watch Facebook or email Q for updates on protests in your area. Q is also taking signups in California for RAPID RESPONSE PROTESTS and campaigns to bring these issues to greater media and public attention.
