Equal Constitutional Parental Rights and any needed reforms to the family law system to ensure them.
I am a children's rights activist. I have watched my stepson go through torture from his own mother before the courts actually did anything about it.His mother had TWO evaluations done that said exactly what kind of person she is, yet the judges refused to even look into this and continue to give her unsupervised visitations
Now, a new judge has taken the place of the other judge due to the old judge getting a promotion. This new judge has given the biological mother way more than what she deserves and has even stated that she has not done her homework on the case, but gives into this narcissistic persons demands.
If you were elected president, how would you fix the corruption in child custody areas?
Please remember our children are our future. If our children are mentally, psychologically, emotionally, etc. abused, how are they suppose to lead future generations?
What is your stance on equal constitutional parental rights for all parents and any needed reforms to the family law system to ensure them?
For some reason the candidates are outright avoiding this question. That is very telling in and of itself.At least 100,000 voters & millions more would like this relatively simple question like an answer but it continues to be ignored by all the candidates. What do you say that maybe at least one candidate just give a simple answer like if they are or are not for it? I'd prefer an official public statement and that it be a major part of their campaign, but right now I'd even settle for a private message telling me to "bug off". Don't ignore me and all the other citizens who consider this to be a very important question worthy of undivided attention. Voters want an answer.
We all hear about the "war on women"... Well, what about the war on men & fathers in America? What are any of the candidates stances on family law reform to ensure equal parental rights and shared parenting? I'd like to know who is brave enough and "politically incorrect" enough to take on this massive issue?
It's an unconstitutional disgrace and an upwards of 50 billion dollars a year corrupt industry in the U.S. alone. That's just the annual traceable amounts, The actual numbers are astounding as are the negative effects on society as a whole. This issue is literally destroying society from within by destroying the family bonds & structure that a civilized nation needs to be strong and survive. No topic could more more important to this country as it effects all Men, women, and children.
We have no problem saying that fathers need to step up to the plate for their children, but we fail to warn them that when they do they get a fastball right between the eyes. - This has to stop!
Support in favor of this cause would not only mean an awful lot of votes from both Men and women, it would also be a chance to save our children and the decline of everything we hold dear to us not only as a nation but as civilized human beings.
Do you support a presumption of equal parental fitness, regardless of gender, being enshrined in law in accordance with the 14th Amendment?
Family Courts violate the Equal Protection Clause and Due Process Clause as a standard practice by relegating one parent to "Custodial" and another to "Non-Custodial", most often along gender lines.
The Supreme Court and Federal Circuit courts have long upheld the Parent-Child relationship as being so fundamental as to warrant EXTENSIVE due process protections.
There is consensus in the psychological community that shared parenting is in the best interests of children more often than not.
Aside from the Constitutional Law violations, would it not stand to reason that shared parenting should be the standard, instead of the rare exception in separation/child custody issues?
Family Law needs serious reform, and Family Courts should not be empowered to create master/slave dynamics--again, especially along gender lines--without each parent having Due Process observed, and observed equally. Each parent should be on equal footing walking into a courtroom. Our children deserve to have both parents scrutinized by the same standards. That is in their "best interest".
A rebuttable presumption of shared parenting should be the starting point in all jurisdictions. The parent and/or state should have the burden of proof placed on their shoulders to prove the other parent as "unfit" or "less than fit" in order to deviate from the shared parenting presumption. The concept is the same as "presumption of innocence".
In the vast majority of cases, one parent(usually the father), has to overcome higher standards of proof to approach equality in parenting. Shared parenting presumptions begin to level the playing field, which is in our children's best interest. Family Law Reform needs to be an election topic in 2016.
White children born in the 1950-1954 period spent only 8% of their childhood with just one parent; black children spent 22%.
Of those born in 1980, by one estimate, white children can be expected to spend 31% of their childhood years with one parent, and black children 59%.
