The Custody Crisis Is NOT Gender Neutral; Judges Are NOT Mistaken; The Solution Is NOT Training or New Laws
In a new two-part NBC News series, the Custody Crisis is being portrayed as gender neutral, caused by untrained judges making mistakes and a lack of child safety legislation. This damaging misinformation misleads the public and points to ineffective solutions which will only prolong the crisis.
The investigative series discusses how “parents” are unable to protect children from “abusers” in Family Court, implying that judges are not protecting children from both abusive mothers and fathers. The chiron reads: “Judges Accused of Ignoring Abuse in Custody Battles”.
However, the ONLY epidemic is WOMEN being unable to maintain custody or protect their children from fathers and it is being caused by systemic discrimination against women and male entitlement.
The only reference to a father supposedly unable to protect his children from their mother was in a 5 second video clip where a reporter said the mother had murdered her children. But the mother was previously a loving mother who murdered them because the judge gave custody to their father, who she believed was abusing and sex trafficking them. (This info was in the same report the 5 second video clip came from.) So this was not a case of a judge ignoring abuse by a mother and switching custody to a father as is the theme of the series. It was another case in which the judge ignored the mother’s reports of sexual abuse.
The board chair of the National Parents Organization is quoted as saying “people” use allegations of parental alienation strategically and falsely, but “people” also use allegations of abuse strategically and falsely. This bogus gender-neutral stance is intended to muddy the waters. The truth is the only epidemic in family court is judges falsely finding mothers to be falsely reporting abuse and alienating the children from their fathers, and then allowing the father to alienate the children from the mother. The article neglected to disclose that NPO is the premier fathers’ rights organization in the U.S., disguised as a gender-neutral “parent” organization.
Judge Ramona Gonzalez, former president of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) said in the interview with Kate Snow, "If you have untrained judges that don't understand the dynamics of trauma ... they will make assumptions and those assumptions will lead to decisions based on error." She is lying. She knows judges are deliberately giving kids to abusive fathers. The NCJFCJ has documented the crisis for decades.
Some of the mothers interviewed for this story have apparently been misled into thinking the problem is lack of training and/or laws. But it is not. The problem is judges deliberately deeming women liars, alienators, mentally ill and emotionally abusive in order to give custody to abusive, negligent or unfit fathers, so no amount of training or new laws will stop them.
That means the only effective solution is to get cases OUT of Family Court and OUT of judges’ hands. What is needed is a new system in a real court with juries deciding whether there is a preponderance of evidence of abuse, not judges. The Child Custody Act provides for a new system:

Cindy Dumas, M.A. has been researching, writing, and raising awareness about the Custody Crisis since 2003, when she was unable to protect her children from their abusive father. She fled into hiding when Family Court failed her and was tricked into returning home, when her children were given to their abusive father.
