A Crushing 96% of Moms Say Judge Deliberately Harmed Their Children.
In a Women's Coalition poll, 96% of over 300 mothers say their Family Court judge did not make an honest mistake, but that s/he knew her/his rulings were not good for the children, and in many cases, very harmful, as is evidenced by comments on the post.
This result is consistent with the thousands of emails The Women’s Coalition has received detailing how judges have disregarded, and often actively concealed, considerable evidence of abuse or unfitness by the fathers of their children.
These poll results are important because they confirm the core cause of the custody crisis is judges DELIBERATELY disregarding children’s safety and well-being in order to grant custody or unsupervised visitation to fathers, many of whom are physically or sexually abusive.
That means the solutions being pushed by protective parent and child abuse organizations will not make any significant difference in the crisis. Since judges are DELIBERATELY ignoring evidence and falsely finding mothers to be lying, alienating, abusive and mentally ill, no amount of training, resources or new laws will help.
It doesn’t matter how much the court parasites profit off custody cases or how much money fathers or mothers have, the result is the same. And it doesn’t matter what new laws are enacted, because family court judges can violate laws with impunity. Family courts are designed so judges have, in effect, absolute power.
"Family Court" is just a modern-day mechanism used to enforce male entitlement, power and control in the family. Patriarchy means literally: “rule of the father”. It is no coincidence Family Court judges have been given nearly absolute power. It's so they can maintain fathers’ control over "their" women and children after divorce.
Kate Millet said, “The chief institution of patriarchy is the family.”
The only way to end the crisis is to eliminate this root cause. That means a new system must be implemented, in which juries, not judges, have the power to decide custody, which operates in a REAL civil court, not the rigged Family Court system, and which eliminates all the tactics currently used to grant custody and unsupervised visitation to undeserving fathers.
Since male power in the family is arguably the most coveted patriarchal perk, and paternal entitlement is systemically entrenched, WOMEN MUST UNITE as a class, as half the population (along with men who truly care about what is best for children) and demand 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.
