I don’t know whether to be touched or outraged. This article is so naïve it’s almost sweet in a perverse sort of way (Brookings, 12/9/15). Parenting Plan Model - Causes 2015At the same time, it was written by a scholar at the Brookings Institute, one of the leading think tanks in this country, so I’d expect it to exhibit some basic knowledge about its subject. (I uniformly refuse to write in all caps because I consider that a poor substitute for principled argument. But I promise you, the linked-to piece tests my resolve.)

The writer is Richard Reeves. He’s billed as the Co-Director of the Center on Children and Families. His thesis is this: Problem — single mothers are disproportionately poor; they do the lion’s share of childcare; that prevents them from working and earning; many non-resident fathers aren’t employed. Solution — have fathers provide childcare so mothers can work!

Lots of non-resident fathers are not gainfully employed; single mothers are struggling with childcare cost; and children, especially boys, are suffering from the distance or absence of their father. Here’s an idea: have the fathers look after their children, allowing mothers to get into and stay in work. The savings for the mother would far outweigh child support payments, which could be suspended when the father is providing childcare. What if, rather than squeezing these men for every last nickel, we were to ask them to do childcare instead?

Someone might tell Reeves that countless people all over the English-speaking world and far beyond have been arguing for exactly that for decades now. It’s called shared parenting. (I really wanted to use all caps, but stayed my hand.) When Mom gives up part of her parenting time while Dad cares for the kids, that’s shared parenting. We’ve been fighting for this day after day, year after year. British men dress up in superhero outfits and scale Buckingham Palace and other prominent structures to bring attention to the problem. People write articles and books. Organizations large and small submit bills to state and national legislatures. Study after study is conducted.

But Reeves knows none of this. “Here’s an idea…” No, Mr. Reeves, the idea isn’t new and it isn’t yours. There’s a thing called Google. Use it. Type in s-h-a-r-e-d p-a-r-e-n-t-i-n-g. See what you get. Or “equal parenting” or “fathers’ rights” or any similar search term. See? People have already thought of your idea.

And it’s a great idea. But it turns out that simply having a good idea hasn’t fixed things. On the contrary, what’s become obvious is that, even though all the arguments are on the side of shared parenting — good for kids, good for mothers, good for fathers, good for society generally, good for the public purse — they haven’t yet carried the day.

Oh, we’ve had our victories and more are to come. But what everyone knows who’s toiled in these mines is that being right isn’t enough. If it were, shared parenting would have become the norm years ago.

The Campaign for Equal Parenting Starts With You.

MzParental Rights Class Action

If you want to join now, just jump down to the registration form at the bottom of this Homepage, or first read the Overview just below, and/or learn about the very powerful constitutional Arguments that we’re going to use within the Complaint.

If you are hoping to find some power legal ammo for use in your own personal family court case, then you still want to see our Arguments page, also the upper areas of our F.A.Q. Page, and just added, you may now also check our free Legal Tips page.

Scheduled for filing during middle March 2016, this federal class action suit seeks two primary goals in court relief: (1) shutdown and radically correct both of the main unlawful “family court” systems nationwide because of multiple, grossly unconstitutional issues each; and, (2) shutdown all of related federal HHS/ACF “carrot and stick” programs that are partial blame for causing #1.

This class action lawsuit also demands one secondary form of relief, a declaration (Order) from the federal court that the unlawful deprivations of child custodial rights from all registered class action plaintiffs are void, hence fully restoring the prior legal and physical child custody of all registered plaintiffs who qualify and join below. This ability to directly restore fundamental rights is because of the legal nature in swearing under penalty of perjury that each such parent is actually qualified to receive all such relief. Further, all of the other millions of “similarly situated” parents out there will be able to use this same declaratory relief ordered by the federal court, and proceed back to their respective family courts (using an attorney of their choice if and as needed), to go through the process for essentially the same guaranteed results. The difference is only that those other millions of parents were not already in this class action lawsuit, formally, by swearing their own qualifications to receive relief under penalty of perjury.

Basically, if you are a parent of one or more natural/biological children, you also were unlawfully victimized by either above-described American “family court” system within the past four years (whether still currently or not), and you currently live in one of the 50 States/Commonwealths, you qualify to be a Member of CAPRA and fully participate in everything described upon this website. However, there are per-geography limits.

For various reasons, the total membership of CAPRA will be limited to a maximum of the first 51,764 qualified registrants, which is population-density based, including up to twelve (12) Members allowed to join and participate from the very least populated, most rural Localities, and likewise by different population-density thresholds, up to a max of twenty-eight (28) Members from each of the many most populated Localities.

About 95% of all such 3142 U.S. Census “Localities” are called “[something] County” while the rest are county-equivalents, like “boroughs” and “census areas” in Alaska, “parishes” in Louisiana, and even “independent cities” like St. Louis, Baltimore, and others, which are cities not part of any counties, with their own borders, etc. Using different population thresholds, each different Locality is shown with either three (3), five (5) or seven (7) CAPRA membership slots on this example spreadsheet. We are using four (4) of those (real) spreadsheets together, each with 12,941 slots, for a grand total of 51,764 maximum CAPRA membership slots available across the nation, hence “three” slots shown on the single spreadsheet for a Locality is actually twelve slots available, “five” is actually twenty slots, and “seven” shown is actually 28 slots. http://parentalrightsclassaction.com/

It is the same with judges.”

FROM:     CIVIL  RIGHTS  ADVOCATE  LEON  R. KOZIOL

RE:            FEDERAL  COURT  CIVIL  RIGHTS  LAWSUIT  FILED  AGAINST NYS  CHIEF  JUSTICE , STATE  COURT  SYSTEM  AND  OTHERS CHALLENGING  PARENTING  LAWS  AND  LIBERTY  DEPRIVATIONS

FOR  IMMEDIATE  RELEASE

In what may be described as the most sweeping challenge to date upon our nation’s draconian child control laws surrounding Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, New York Civil Rights Advocate Leon R. Koziol, J.D. has filed a comprehensive test case in United States District Court in Albany, New York. Named in the action are judicial and law enforcement officials, including New York’s Chief Justice and Unified Court System. The lawsuit, served upon select parties this week, takes aim at “custody” and “child support” laws which alienate children from their parents as part of a government money generating scheme. A 39 page, 24 count civil complaint sets forth the manner in which lawyers and forensic agents feed off of manufactured controversies in domestic relations courts to harm parent-child relations and the financial stability of mainstream households. According to Koziol, it is a process which is harming the productivity of an entire nation.

Until his public stance against the legal profession in recent years, Mr. Koziol enjoyed an unblemished 23 year career as a constitutional rights attorney. His accomplishments include six figure jury verdicts on behalf of race, gender and free speech victims. In 2004, he secured a final judgment in New York Supreme Court declaring unconstitutional the operation of the largest casino in that state. He has appeared on the CBS Program “60 Minutes”, New York Times and CNN, among other national mediums. The current action provides a startling look at the manner in which government actors are suppressing free speech, due process and the People’s liberty interests in childrearing. Mr. Koziol is seeking similar victims of courtroom abuses to join this action and transform it to class action status. Support is needed behind his sacrificial cause on behalf of “parents similarly situated”. As the holiday season approaches, Mr. Koziol hopes to target family preservation issues and the scheduling of a national parenting rights convention.

Preliminary Statement

(1) The State of New York maintains a separate but unequal doctrine of parentinlaws in domestic relations matters which is inherently unconstitutional and fraudulently designed, in part, to exploit children for money generating purposes.

(2) Custodial and non-custodial classifications are mandated in blanket fashioamong separated parents to provoke public court contests and a stream of money transfers upon which to generate government support. Mainstream and irresponsible parents are lumped together under this scheme and arbitrarily forced to prove their fitness to the state.

(3) A “custodial institution of child rearing” has consequently arisen whereby residents and businesses are needlessly brought under state scrutiny, children are placed above their parents against a natural order of child rearing, and gender discrimination is practiced in order to comply with federal welfare laws found in Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.

(4) As relevant here, the named defendants have committed the plaintiff parents and children indefinitely to this custodial institution in violation of parenting agreements and a full range of inalienable rights protected by the United States Constitution without a compelling, important or rational basis.e3332-judge2bjudy

Abilities Needed To Be A Pro Se Litigant and those you will learn

The ability to deal with rejection. You must be able to take rejection without defining it as failure.  Always remember if two lawyers are walking out of the courtroom, both were overpaid.  Just kidding.  If two lawyers are walking out of a courtroom, one of them lost!  You must interpret rejection as a battle, not the war.

The ability to continue after being knocked down. Sometimes you may need to take a day or two to recover.  You may need to let your irritation diminish.  You will need the ability to get back up and say, “Ok, what can I do now?” or “What didn’t I do?”

The ability to view things from many different angles. You need the ability to think more in terms like, “That is A view” versus “There is my view and the wrong view.”  “That is A defense” versus “They don’t have a defense.”  Being impatient or intolerant with another’s view, defense or assertion appears as immaturity in the courtroom.  Opposing side is supposed to have a view, defense or assertion.  Many times you will deal with outrageous arguments using deceit and/or lies that would never be used as arguments outside the courtroom.

The ability to be precise in written and spoken word. “I did not have sexual relations with Monica Lowinsky.”  Ms. Lowinsky’s allegations involved oral sex.  The definition of sexual relations does NOT include oral sex. President Clinton never denied Ms. Lowinsky’s sexual allegation….but millions thought he did!  “There is no improper relationship.”  There isn’t now, but WAS there?  Many of us are raised speaking and writing without precision. We fill in the gaps with what we believe is the intended meaning.  Precision in the spoken and written word will take time to learn.

The ability to remain dignified regardless of the circumstances. You will deal with all sorts of absurdities, injustices and indignities.  You will be told nonsense and lies with people looking you straight in the eye or sounding like they are on a truth serum.  You must learn to stare absurdities, injustices and indignities square in the face without losing your cool while still defending yourself.  Being outraged or emotional does NOT carry the weight it may carry outside the courtroom.

The ability to be persistent and thorough. Many in the legal profession say the one who wins is the one with the most stamina. Of course, that usually means the one with the most money to spend.  Persistence and thoroughness are necessary elements to any successful litigation.

The ability to remain in control of your emotions. When you are litigating Pro se, it is particularly difficult to separate your emotions during litigation.  Be forewarned, emotionalism during litigation can and most likely will be used as an excuse to cut you off. 

The ability to know and accept your wrong after being 100% convinced you are right. This can be a humbling and learning experience.  Sometimes, despite our convictions or our research, there will be times we will miss or misinterpret the point and be wrong.  Thinking law and litigation is a mixture of morality, common sense and fairness is a common source of this experience.  Morality, common sense and fairness may be elements in the drafting of laws, but the implementation of law may not favor morality, common sense or fairness as these terms are generally defined.

The ability to hold your position when right when everyone is saying you are wrong. Remember case law is made by litigants questioning Judge’s decisions.  There may be times lower court procedure and trials become a formality in order to get the higher courts to rule on your issues. 

The ability to separate morality, common sense, fairness and law. Morality, common sense and fairness may be elements in the drafting of laws, but the implementation of law may not favor morality, common sense or fairness as these terms are generally defined.

The ability to see Judges and Lawyers as human beings. Most have to have several hearings before they can see Judges or Lawyers as human beings.  Usually the behavior from Judges and Lawyers will eliminate any pedestal you may have placed them on.

The ability to stay on point. Court proceedings many times are nothing more than obstacle courses designed to get you off point. If they can get you off point, your issues get lost. Frankly, it takes guts to insist on remaining on point and sometimes that could mean getting the Judge back to the point.

The ability to present your case without preaching. So many Pro se litigants preach in their documents and during hearings. They want to give the court a history lesson on the great principles this country was founded on. Argue the merits of your case with minimal preaching.

Most Important! The ability to recover from the stress. Litigation, many times, can damage a person like little else can. You MUST recover and move on so you can be there to help others.  Process your irritation into a recovery!Stop Fatherlessness - 2016
