Tell Us Your Story

The family court system in its present state has disrupted families and produced an adversarial tone to the process. The following examples show how the system fails real people in real situations:

speakerSara:

My Ex’s attorney pretended to be mine to get private data from
my employer.

I was arrested when
I brought the kids home late from a scheduled visit.

speakerDave

My Order for Protection ordered me to live in the same home
with my abusive wife.

speakerMarie

The court appointed parenting consultant told my children “you’re my kids now” —- and they still are — years later.
