DR KAREN HUFFNER - AUTHOR - LEGAL ABUSE SYNDROMELegal Abuse Syndrome (LAS), a condition proposed by marriage and family therapist Karin P. Huffer, whose books on the subject of post-traumatic stress stemming from court-mediated violations are   Overcoming the Devastation of Legal Abuse Syndrome(1995) and Legal Abuse Syndrome: 8 Steps for Avoiding the Traumatic Stress Caused by the Justice System(2013).

“Develops in individuals assaulted by ethical violations, legal abuses, betrayals, and fraud” and that’s exacerbated by “abuse of power and authority and a profound lack of accountability in our courts.” ~  Karin P. Huffer

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#‎neverforget‬When a Parent wins in Family Courts KIDS LOSE - 2016

There is no one way or no best way to tell the story of a man driven by others to take his life.

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.

Eea981-gandhichangexcerpt:

The first thing I did when I doubted myself and my decision to take a new job and move to a new city was talk to people who know and care about me — my wife, family and friends.

They helped, but I also needed an expert on my career, so I reached out to my old boss. He met me at a diner after work and gave me so much good advice that I wrote it down and referred to it often in those early weeks.

Fortune favors the bold

Simply thinking about past challenges in which you came out on top — or at the very least unscathed — is a reminder that you will do so this time as well. There’s also that old linguistic chestnut that the Chinese word for “crises” is also “opportunity.” (It’s true, by the way.) Sometimes our greatest difficulties become our greatest moments of triumph.

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
