Now Is The Time For More Family Court Judges





Published on Mar 4, 2014
Now is the time for more family court judges in New York State.

The Family Court System in New York State is desperately short of judicial resources. While the Courts have made extraordinary efforts to address the overwhelming needs of the children and families, the shortage leads to unconscionable delays; the instability, trauma and uncertainty of delays cause irreparable damage to New York's children and grave risk to victims of domestic violence. These delays cost taxpayers money.

New York's most vulnerable children and families depend on the Family Court system to address some of the most important decisions of their lives. Current limited resources create a backlog that has led to long delays for families, victims of violence and children, effectively closing the doors to justice for those who need it the most.

The New York State Coalition for More Family Court Judges has come together to ensure that New York State provides for more resources for Family Courts, including at least 20 more Family Court Judges statewide to provide justice for families. The Coalition will advocate for the approval of the Judiciary's budget request and amending the Family Court Act to add more Family Court Judges will help provide more timely access to justice for New York's children and families.

"It’s awesome to see a big bad football player like Hilton wear his emotions on his sleeve." ~ Glenn McGraw

Sunday was a huge day for Indianapolis Colts wide receiver TY Hilton. Early in the morning, Hilton welcomed his newborn baby daughter into the world. Just hours later he was suited up on the field for the Colts, catching four passes for 122 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also carried the ball one time for 15 yards.
After the game, an emotional Hilton couldn’t hold back the tears when talking about his little girl, crying during his post-game interview. It’s awesome to see a big bad football player like Hilton wear his emotions on his sleeve.

"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." (Tecumseh).
