The Grave Injustices Taking Place in Family Courts.

  "Keith Harmon Snow's meticulously documented investigation into sex-trafficking of children by American judges is not to be missed... I might not believe what Mr. Snow has written if I had not independently investigated two dozen cases not discussed in his article, and found ample evidence of the precise dynamics he lays out for us here. Anyone who says they care about child welfare needs to learn what is happening in family courts and take action until it is stopped. Once you start reading this exposé, you won't be able to put it down."
--Lundy Bancroft, Why Does He Do That?

"It is a national scandal that family courts systematically fail to protect children from physical and/or sexual abuse by a predatory parent. What is equally scandalous is the silence of the mainstream media to cover the issue... With luck, when reporters like Keith Harmon Snow shine a light on the grave injustices taking place in family courts, Americans will be filled with a sense of responsibility and take action to protect children from family court abuses."
--Garland Waller

"If you are facing the Family Law or Dependency Courts, do not enter until you have read this book by Keith Harmon Snow. We won my daughter's case and protected my grandchildren with the help of the article that led to this book." -- Lori Johnson, Los Angeles
FUTURE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES
National Parents Organization plans to further explore statutes pertaining to non-marital children, considering that 40% of all children born in America today are born to unmarried parents, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Moreover, since unmarried parents have less stable relationships than married parents, their children constitute well more than half of the children for whom family courts issue custody orders.


In addition, in every state, judges have the discretion to order shared parenting if they care to. Unfortunately, they do this very infrequently, as shown by the data of the U.S. Census Bureau, which indicates that sole custody to one parent exists in about 83% of cases. Still, in some states,
shared parenting is ordered more frequently than in others, which is another occurrence our organization may explore in the future. For instance, a 2014 study of outcomes in Wisconsin finds that shared physical custody in 2008 occurred in 45% of all divorce cases. That said, the study defines shared parenting such that one parent could have as little as 25% of the parenting time. In most states, unfortunately, custody decisions by the family courts are not properly reported, so that information on the subject is often unreliable and incomplete. Thus, for most states, it may be impossible to determine the actual prevalence of shared parenting orders with precision. The next best analysis was to examine the statutory language, as we have done in this report.

Case law may also be an important determinant of shared parenting, more so in some states than in others. For instance, the New York statute has no language that allows shared parenting, but the court’s decision in Braiman v. Braiman serves as legal precedent that has allowed family court judges to order this arrangement in some cases. Still, this is less powerful than statute, since family court judges can depart from case law
precedent with impunity if the parties do not have the means or desire to appeal to higher courts, or if the family court can make a persuasive
argument for departing from case law; it is more difficult to contravene an explicit statute.

About National Parents Organization
Mission
National Parents Organization improves the lives of children and strengthens society by protecting every child’s right to the love and care of both parents after separation or divorce. We seek better lives for children through family court reform that establishes equal rights and responsibilities for fathers and mothers.
Vision
National Parents Organization’s vision is a society in which:

• Children are happier and more successful because their loving bonds are protected after parental separation or divorce;
• Children have a natural right to be nurtured and guided by both parents;
• Society treats fathers and mothers as equally important to the wellbeing of their children;
• Shared parenting after separation or divorce is the norm;
• The courts arrange finances after separation or divorce so that both mothers and fathers can afford to house and care for their children and themselves; and
• Our society understands and respects the essential role of fathers.

Core Principles
Shared Parenting: Shared parenting protects children’s best interests and the loving bonds children share with both parents after separation or divorce;
Parental Equality: Equality between genders has been extended to every corner of American society, with one huge exception: Family Courts and the related agencies, and
Respect for Human and Property Rights: The Supreme Court of the United States has found that “the interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children… is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court.”

"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).
