Judicial Bias and Absolute Discretion in Family Courts

Family Law Lawyers and Judges are violating our most cherished human rights.Florida Parental Rights

Too often in the family justice system, and elsewhere, we see judges applying their discretion to tailor the law, not to suit the parties that come before it, but to exorcise personal frustrations. Judges sometimes forget they are there to serve. But they should be reminded.Stop Absolute Discretion and Immunity of Family Court Judges - Causes 2015

Judges are considered to be cornerstones of society, upholding the most decent and free-thinking modes of thought, the most sophisticated thinkers, a little like modern-day philosophers. But all too often, they are simply just time-short, temper-short and short on perspective. And most importantly perhaps, judges who seek to change the way society functions on a political level are blurring the lines between the judiciary and the executive. And that too, creates conflict of interest and can have devastating consequences for justice.

So, how do we change that? How can we manage the necessary boundaries and make sure our judges function professionally?

One suggestion might be to have an organisation that reviews and monitors each judge’s cases – not all of them, but perhaps just one case a year, so that fairness can be monitored and quality assurance verified. And if a party complains about their case, there should be a proper complaints procedure in place, to allow for a proper investigation.

It might also be useful to have a directory of judges and their views on things like heterosexual marriage, divorce, child welfare and more, biographies about each judge, their financial interests and which groups and organisations they belong to. Transparency would be achieved in this way and it would go some way to help restore trust and confidence inside a system which is sorely lacking it.

Yes, judicial bias is always going to exist: but it can be managed and justice can prevail.

This episode provides the rare privilege of hearing from an outspoken retired family court judge from Alberta who spent 22 years resolving all kinds of parental disputes. We will have a frank and candid discussion and I have invited him to unleash his most forthright insights into the family justice system. He will also tell us why he left the court in 1997 to pursue what he believes is a much healthier and effective way to help parents resolve their conflicts.

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol issues startling report to Justice Department for investigation and hearings on abuse of federal funds in divorce and family courts.

Should men become husbands and fathers—and many men today are choosing not to—they don’t stand a chance in a court of law if and when they get divorced. Family court judges are hopelessly biased against fathers. Of the two million restraining orders issued each year—85 percent against men—half don’t include any evidence of violence but rely on vague complaints made without proof or evidence. And once an order is issued, it becomes nearly impossible for a father to retain or regain custody or even get to see his own children. “Right under our noses, massive systemic injustice is being visited upon fathers, threatening the very fundamentals of family, society, and democracy,” writes Todd M. Aglialoro.

“There’s no more important ingredient for success, nothing that would be more important for us reducing violence than strong, stable families, which means we should do more to promote marriage and encourage fatherhood,” Obama said.

So now the president has spoken…Let us stop criminalizing good decent men, whose only crime is to be poor and have married a woman that had no intention of staying for the long haul…So many men would give their eye teeth to be in their children’s lives, helping raise them, teaching them right from wrong…But due to our Feminist attitude that only MOM is entitled to the children and our gov’t rewarding such behavior everyday in our Family courts, we have a nation of people that are only concerned about “Me”, give no thought what so ever to the consequences of their actions.

Alienated Parents - Call to Action - 2015

The rights of parents to the care, custody and nurture of their children is of such character that it cannot be denied without violating those fundamental principles of liberty and justice which lie at the base of all our civil and political institutions, and such right is a fundamental right protected by this amendment (First) and Amendments 5, 9, and 14. Doe v. Irwin, 441 F Supp 1247; U.S. D.C. of Michigan, (1985).

The time to put Dad back in the family is long past due, and if you don’t take a stand against the problem, then you are part of the problem…CHILDREN NEED THEIR FATHERS… much more than they need anything else. Children are not tools to be bargained with and the sooner America realizes, that they can no longer use children as a weapon to get back at the supposed wrong of the other parent, the sooner our nation will get back on track. A strong family background, with good moral character is what our nation needs.

Too many valuable assets are being wasted on courts, lawyers, and counselors, that could be better spent on raising a child/children. We have tried in the best interest of the child, and it is not working, as too many judges enter the courtroom with a built in bias of this is “my courtroom and I make the law”, and even if you do have a good judge, no one follows up on visitation issues where the custodial parent, decides to totally ignore the court orders and feels as if they own the child. Don’t do this for me, sign this petition for your son, your daughter, your niece, your nephew, your mother, your father.

Administrator’s note: It has been awhile since our last post but that is because Leon has been working on a comprehensive report to the Justice Department which will hopefully lead to meaningful reforms in our nation’s divorce and family courts. This report has been sent to U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch at the Justice Department in Washington D.C. and it seeks the following:

1) A federal investigation into the abuses of federal funds to the states in divorce and family court proceedings;

2) Proactive measures by President Barack Obama and his administration to include a task force on father discrimination to lend credibility behind his annual upcoming Fathers’ Day message; and

3) Administrative review of draconian support warrant and incarceration practices by local law enforcement to prevent escalating violence reflected by murder of Walter Scott in South Carolina.

Attached you will find cover letter to U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch and first…
