Judge Manno-Schurr Reversed again for not knowing the law - United Auto Courts Reports

United Auto Courts Reports ~ Valerie Manno-Schurr has made a habit of being reversed in her first term as Miami-Dade circuit judge. The latest instance was on Feb. 29, when the Third District Court of Appeal determined that she erred in a dispute over a homeowner’s insurance claim. Judge Manno-Schurr has been reversed many times on cases taken to appeal. As of late 2011,…Read More

Sign the petition. It is already headed for Congress.

The amount of unquestioned power in the family court system is a breeding ground for corruption and unchecked biases. The matter of a parents and childs future as a family and legal forced adoption is one that should be taken with extreme consideration. We the undersigned ask that the option to choose a jury trial over the sole discretion of one Judge, be implemented. When the State terminates and adopts out a parents child there is financial incentive for the counties CPS that creates a huge door for corrupt practices and abuse of power in an effort to secure funding. The act of terminating a parents rights not only strips a child of an entire family and identity, but causes the parent years of grief and uncertainty. To lose one's child is a loss so terrible in it's torment of a parents heart. This is a matter that is more then just a 'civil' matter which can be handled lightly. We want accountability. We want fair and just trials by a group of our peers.

Never doubt why so many are working so hard to ‪#‎fixfamilycourts‬ 

Every parent starts out equal but does not remain that way in the so-called family courts.

Once you enter that court you feel nothing but attacked. Your life and decisions are no longer your own. Your children are stripped from the life you thought you were protected to live. People in the family court process step in between you and your child regardless of whether you are for or not.

Some like Chris are left with no hope of ever recovering. What do you do when the court you thought would protect you and your child from vicious attacks on your fundamental rights fails you? Where do you turn when you cannot afford justice and when there is no hope for it?

Let's make 2016 the year of ‪#‎noexcuses‬ and restore justice and protection in every parent and child's life. Let's make 2016 the year of no more lost lives and ‪#‎fizfamilycourts‬ once and for all! ‪#‎neverfear‬‪#‎neverforget‬

76. Father's Open Letter To The Family Courts.

Owen Lucas films his open letter to the court
admitting that he is in contempt of court for doing so.
He tells us of his grief and impotence in the face of the family court system.
Owen speaks for so many fathers who find themselves in the palm of ex-partners colluding with a system that in many cases, strips fathers of their homes, their children and their dignity - and often their jobs and financial stability too.
Mothers are given legal aid and fathers are not unless there is already proven child abuse.
In cases where abuse is suspected or even confirmed, a father has no clout to impact the family court system in many cases.
NB. If you know a child is being abused, ensure that a. you take photographs b. you film them speaking of the events and c. you inform the police without delay. These three steps may well be the difference between whether you become alienated from, or the main caregiver to your child/children.

The family court system routinely violates fathers’, mothers’ and children’s Constitutional Rights with lack of due process restraining orders, forced alienation of children from fine, fit parents and court ordered separation of property without legal justification.  By breeding and instigating malicious mothers and fathers, matrimonial attorneys and the  family court system  create “deadbeat dads” & “deadbeat moms” by turning fine, fit parents into destitute, broken citizens separated from their children, property and finances.  Family court, through a system of ABA controlled, deliberately ambiguous, arcane, self-serving laws, absurd & deliberately intimidating Latin and cumbersome court rules, routinely creates fatherless & motherless children that devastate families and undermines the fabric of American society.  As women continue to earn more money in the workforce, this system is turning against women with alarming speed and frequency. 
The family court system’s unregulated environment enables predatory matrimonial attorneys to exploit families at their most vulnerable time and entrap families in multi-year, financially ruinous divorce litigation and bitter, attorney-created acrimony deliberately instigated to line their pockets with your money.  Families are literally picked clean by the system. 
In family law, there is no constitutional right to jury, due process or an attorney.  As a result, elected or appointed Judges have tremendous unsupervised power to conduct their court rooms as they see fit.  Compound this fact with the problem of underfunded and opaque ethics regulations of attorneys, judges or court appointed experts and you have the recipe for disaster for families stuck in a collusive court.
The trio of judge, attorney and expert have 100% transparency into the assets of their victims and have scary powers to hold children as ransom in money grabs.  It’s truly an abomination and, as Americans, we have a moral imperative to fix this situation and apply civil rights to the courts that decide the lives of our children.
How can this possibly be?  Family court is big business.  A Business created by lawyers for lawyers.  Divorce is a $100 Billion a year industry with massive lobbying and marketing budgets.  $100 Billion, not from corporate budgets, but from your life savings and children’s college fund.  It’s a system of increasing financial benefit to matrimonial attorneys & court “experts” and diminishing returns for your family – all while being marketed to you as a winning strategy and your only option to succeed during divorce.   It’s nothing more than government supported job creation and legally mandated transfer of wealth.  Anyone challenging what we say on this site is personally profiting from the system – period. Research their background. When one parent is destroyed financially, the whole family suffers.  Only the legal profession has ethics boards and fee arbitration panels because they are so fraudulent.  And all these boards are run by lawyers which is collusion by definition.  Every week, we receive tragic stories.
Divorce has no place in a court room where divorcing couples are routinely disrespected and treated like criminals by our appointed and elected civil servants. Divorce should be a regulated, thirty or sixty day event just like home real estate transfer.  The process needs fixed legal fees for paperwork, fixed accounting fees for asset division, alimony and child support calculations based on standardized schedules.  Shared physical custody needs to be set at 50/50 with offsets for parental schedules.  With a regulated timeframe, conflict and legal abuse syndrome is minimized, families remain solvent and children remain protected.   The family court system will lose its power to remove children from fine, fit parents, bankrupt and destroy productive members of society and create adversarial situations that push people to dangerous limits.  With a 30 or 60 day system of divorce, divorce rates would likely trend downward which shall improve the fabric of American society. The current industry model of making a mountain out of a molehill for revenue is at the end of its abusive, greedy, self-serving and destructive cycle. 
Fortunately, the era has arrived for reforming the family court system for American citizens.  Our Mission is to harness the strength, energy and determination of thousands of disparate, autonomous fathers’ & mothers’ groups and millions of damaged parents and children and channel that power into a force of ONE NATIONAL VOICE to enact modern legislation and a system of checks & balances.  We will not stand by as irresponsible family court laws, willing courts and 10,000 American Bar Association matrimonial attorneys prey on and destroy the lives of millions of Americans.  The power of social media and education of the problems will drive the message to our civil servants that change can no longer be ignored by them.  Our strategy is well-engineered, our vision is focused and our committment unwavering.
