Because divorce should NOT mean losing your children

Mapping Your Way out of the Family Court Tyranny…



Mapping Your Way out of the Family Court Tyranny…

THUMB iron jawed fire escapeSherry and Ron B Palmer map the way for parents to find their way out of the tyranny, bigotry, and lies of the family courts. “We are helping parents all over the United States stop the abuse of power. Let’s not lose another parent-child relationship to these family courts.”1

“I think a thousand women marching means more than 10,000 signatures on a piece of paper. Suffrage is not a dead issue. It’s us, it’s YOU, it’s living breathing women. We’re not just a petition that can be crumbled up and tossed away. And this is what marching does.”2

If you and your child have been separated or you know someone who has been separated from a loved one by the very courts that are supposed to protect those bonds…

Join us on November 14, 2014 at 1 p.m. est at the Washington State Capitol (see map to grassy area 1), (CLICK HERE TO GO TO EVENT PAGE AND JOIN), the day before the Divorce Corp Reform Conference, to show the world how many people have been hurt by the improper use of the “best interest of the child” doctrine and the improper use of State power to issue alimony and child support. Show those that have been using their power to keep you down that you won’t be fearful anymore, that you won’t be intimidated, or hide, or keep silent any longer. Show that you are important, that your voice matters, that you are here, that being with your children matter.

How much more will you need to be hurt before this becomes a priority for you? Thousands of people lose their lives every day because of abuse of power in the family courts. Don’t let another person burn on the steps of a courthouse, another parent and child die in a supervised visit, another child take their own life, another parent be cut off from their child because they didn’t take them to McDonald’s, another parent go so broke that they can no longer afford to fight to see their child. Don’t let another court spend a child’s future on family studies, counseling, psych evals, etc. Don’t waste another dime on attorneys that refuse to protect your rights and your child’s rights.

How many more children need to be hurt through court-induced parental alienation™? How many more parents will go broke trying to prove parental alienation and trying to save their relationship with their children? How many people need to go bankrupt? How many more people will be forced to fight like this?

Will you commit to doing some simple things before you or your child become another statistic?

You can make a difference right now and you can start contributing to making this issue one where there is nothing for the court’s to force the parents to fight over. Women don’t have to fight to vote anymore. Blacks don’t have to fight to eat at the lunch counters anymore. Parents are still fighting because each and every one of you are not standing up to the abuse of power every day.

Here is how you fight this:

1. Learn your rights. (Your rights organized in one place here: http://book-not-in-the-childs-best-interest.fixfamilycourts.com/NOT-In-the-Childs-Best-Interest.html

2. Make a commitment to fight back.

A. Use your rights in court.

B. Rally to show those in power that you are committed to protecting those rights.

C. Go to conferences to learn more, make connections, and strengthen your efforts individually and together. State Capitol demonstration map

SOME TIPS:

1. Do not agree to go with the status quo any longer. Object to everything the court tries to impose on you and your child regardless of whether they still order it. – Follow through with appeal regardless of whether you win. [Learn how to argue on appeal with Sherry and Ron B Palmer and get explanations on understanding caselaw and other parts of the process in videos like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2kanAwGuuw]

2. Do not agree to hire an attorney if they cannot demonstrate that they know what your constitutional parental rights and your child’s rights are and know and agree to challenge any statutes that impose on these rights. Get a free Attorney-Parent agreement with your rights and your child’s rights here: http://www.fixfamilycourts.com/subscribers/

3. Do not let the courts intimidate you into giving in. That’s your fear taking over and when you let that take over, you are no longer fighting. Learn to fight this fear with Sherry and Ron B Palmer free videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCiRwQrk8ko

4. Use what you know is proven to empower and give leverage to you and your child – your constitutional rights taught by Sherry and Ron B Palmer here in their parental rights book here http://www.fixfamilycourts.com/books/. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you veer off into tangent battles, like battles over sovereignty and grand jury, you are losing focus. Your battle should be to restore your ability to decide for yourself and your child. Adding additional battles onto this to try and prove something else will only prolong your battle as well as increase your expenses.

We will be welcoming Patrick Glynn who is walking from Boston to the Capitol for the millions of lives that are affected every day and the thousands of lives and relationships that are lost. You can follow his walk and participate with him here: http://www.walkforlostkids.com/.

liberty tyranny government fear the people

When State power in any form goes above and beyond and exceeds their authority, and continues to get away with it, we begin to lose the very essence of what it means to be an American. The family courts and the judiciary are exceeding their authority when they award child support, alimony, and a child to one parent over the other without proving their authority under the supreme law of the land.

There are many people who say they cannot come to this rally and cannot make it to the Reform Conference…they say that it is too far and too expensive. Ask yourself how far is too far and how expensive is too expensive? This won’t change until it becomes important to each and every one of you.

It was far and expensive for blacks to boycott the buses and have no way to get to work. It was expensive for women that worked in factories to miss work to participate in the parade for women’s rights. “If we take Sunday off to la ti da for you, we get fired on Monday. You have children misses? They don’t eat ballots.”[i]

If you cannot make this a priority then Washington, your local politicians, and the courts will not make it one either. “Go ahead shut your head off, the ruling class are those who have a voice and that voice is a vote. No one hears you”

Some people face higher prices than others. Some have to travel farther. Some have less money than others. Some will have to walk, take a bus, ask someone to help them get there.

Some will be threatened with imprisonment because they are under such a burden to work to meet a duty of alimony and child support that they are not allowed to take time off work. They will be ridiculed and told that they aren’t putting their child first if they take that time off to protest the treatment they’ve received as a fit parent.

Some people face the price of losing a job because work will not give them the time off.

So did the people that boycotted the buses, so did the women that marched in the parade, so did the men and women that sat at the lunch counters, so did those that followed Cesar Chavez. Are you like this woman in the video below that says “ballots don’t feed children.”

As soon as that woman realized that it wasn’t going to matter if she isn’t alive to work to feed her children if she burns to death in a factory fire because there was no fire escape, she made the commitment. The price of losing her job was less than the price of continuing the status quo.

How long can you keep going on like you are right now? Don’t become the next statistic. Don’t let this hurt your family and friends anymore. How long before they cannot continue to pick up that extra bill you couldn’t cover because you were ordered to pay too much child support, too much alimony, and you are having to fight to see your children? None of your efforts at supporting your child is going to matter if you can no longer afford to keep that job.

“It can happen to ANYONE so it should matter to EVERYONE!” ~Wendy Archer with Parental Alienation Awareness Group USA North Texas Chapter  https://www.facebook.com/groups/paaonorthtexas/

Gather your family and friends, tell your church to come too. Make this a family trip…a mission.

“It is my mission to change the family courts and bring the power back to the fit parents to protect their children in divorce. I know this now. I woke up one morning knowing this and I’ve never looked back. There’s nothing more important in my life than my children. But here I was being attacked and separated from them by people that were supposed to guard and protect us. My children were under attack and I was being told that I had to step aside. I knew that meant that I had to help others protect themselves and their children from this tyranny that I didn’t know existed until the day, a police officer, an attorney, a bailiff, a judge, and the laws stepped over the line and stepped between me and my children.” ~Sherry Palmer with Fix Family Courts https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fix-Family-Courts-Divorce-and-Family-Law-Reform/324146134354536

“Amber’s piece of advice for the person standing on the edge: ‘Follow your instincts and do not give up on your dreams. Do not allow any­one to rob you of your destiny.’  You also need to be passionate about what you’re doing.”[ii] ~Amber Rodgers with D.I.V.A.S. at https://www.facebook.com/divastogether

Does that mean that you won’t suffer in the short-term, no. Does that mean that everything will be fixed immediately as soon as you file, no. This means that you are going to have to fight like you’ve never fought before. This means that you are going to have to train for this and be prepared for people to do things to you that you never thought was allowed under the laws of the United States of America. This means that parents fight their own Ferguson every day inside the courtrooms and out.” And those that use excuses just further empower them. Those that complain that the courts are too insulated or that others are not succeeding using their constitutional rights or those using them are being punished, sound way too familiar to constitutional scholars and researchers like Sherry and Ron B Palmer. These are the same excuses that people gave before Cesar Chavez proved that they could prevail that they just had to find the right tools to do so. They told Cesar, the growers are too powerful, they have the police on their side. Well family courts are powerful and they have many experts and attorneys, and lawmakers on their side. Does that mean that you shouldn’t stand up to them if they are violating your constitutional rights?

*Sherry Palmer and Ron B Palmer advocate for peaceful protest. They do not tell you what to do. You make your own decisions. If you choose to attend any event that they post and it puts your job at risk or puts you at risk of being jailed, you fully take this risk of your own free will. They provide information and education that is of great public importance and has tremendous public value.

You Are Not Ready to Win if You are Not Ready to Lose…



You Are Not Ready to Win if You are Not Ready to Lose…

thumb Ready to Win SherryIf you cannot walk into that court room and say you will not give in then you are not ready and you will be subject to the worst kind of bullying, abuse, bigotry, and intimidation. How did Alice Paul, the Freedom Riders, Martin Luther King, Jr.,, Cesar Chavez his wife, and others prepare for a battle that they knew they weren’t going to win at the local level easily? They knew they would be arrested, they knew they would be threatened, and they knew that they might even be killed. This is what parents face today. So if you are faint at heart or cannot seem to quite get past that “what if…” stage then this is not the fight for you.

If you are saying “but, what if…I just do that psych eval. What if I just go through the counseling and then…. What if my attorney is right and I should just take what they are offering. What if I just go ahead and agree now, can’t I change it later?” If any of these are you, then you will get what they give you. If you are not okay with being told you don’t have rights and have to do what the judge decides, and you want to learn how to get past that “what if I just tried it their way first” or “what if I just give in now and then I can try to change it at the final stage” then keep reading.

I know you didn’t choose this fight and some of you that thought you couldn’t do this are doing it, and those are the ones that I’m addressing here. If you just feel not equipped with the right tools and information, then you are in the right place. None of us woke up and said I want to fight the government and neither did Alice Paul, Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King, Jr. But once they started they decided they weren’t going to stop until they won. So they started helping others learn how to fight so that they could put enough pressure on those abusing their power so that they could force them to change.

And since you are here now that means that you are not willing to put up with the lies, threats, and injustice anymore. You are flat out tired of being bullied and facing tyranny and bigotry every time you try to see your children. You are tired of being broke because the government decided to dip their hand in your pocketbook. And you just want to be able to see your children and raise them in peace. So let’s continue…

Change happens in steps. Losing at the trial court level is not a loss if you preserved your ability to continue fighting, and if you take your fight to the next levels. But if you don’t like that idea, like so many family court attorneys don’t, then you will have to continue to put up with this tyranny and bigotry until someone else changes it for you…and if you’ve been in this long enough then you know that’s not likely to happen any time soon. So if you want to start changing things for yourself right now and you no longer think you can win by playing the game the way they want you to, and you are no longer willing to settle with what they give you after you beg, then this is the right place for you.

I’m not much for begging either and I’m certainly not one much for having others tell me what to do with my life, how to do it, and that I cannot have equal rights and time with my children on my terms and under my rules and conditions. I have always been proud to be an American and have freedom of choice and liberty. And I thought I had this until I went through divorce. If you feel the same way and you are willing to learn how to stand up to abuse of power and not put up with it then…

You trusted your attorney and you lost!



You trusted your attorney and you lost!

confused bizmanAre family law attorneys violating their ethical requirements when they refuse to protect your constitutional rights? Can they be punished or sued for this? The American Bar Association provides a set of rules for attorney professional conduct. In its preamble it lists a lawyer’s responsibilities that says. “[2]… As advisor, a lawyer provides a client with an informed understanding of the client’s legal rights and obligations and explains their practical implications.”

Are judges violating their oaths to the Constitution when they deprive you of your rights as a fit parent? All judges are required to take an oath of office and swear to place the Constitution above everything else [i]. This oath makes it a legal obligation of every judge to place the U.S. Constitution over any and every state statute.

The Supreme Court said over 200 years ago in Marbury v. Madison that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and any law that violates the constitution is void, “Thus, the particular phraseology of the constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.” The Supreme Court in this same opinion said that the judge’s oath of office gives them, all judges, authority and a legal duty to declare any state statute void where it violates the Constitution. In fact, the court in Marbury says that it would be a crime for a judge to be barred from acting on this oath [ii].

Many judges and attorneys will tell you that only Appellate Courts can declare a statute void as being unconstitutional but they are either ignorant of this case—one of the most important cases in our country’s history—or they are intentionally misleading you to protect their own interests. Where they place their interests over your constitutional rights they are violating their ethics as an attorney and their oath as a judge.

When your rights are violated by a judge, the appellate courts will first look to see if you raised an objection to the violation in the hearing. In some cases, they may refuse to hear your appeal if you did not object properly in the hearing. Where your attorney tells you that you should not raise constitutional rights at the trial court, they are placing you at some extra risk of not being able to appeal your constitutional rights.

Why do the appellate courts do this? They do it because they say the trial court must be given the opportunity to rule on the violations before they are appealed. If the trial court did not have authority to declare a statute void as unconstitutional then why would the appellate court have these rules?

If your attorney refuses to make your constitutional objections at the trial court, not only are they violating their ethical duty to inform you of your rights but they are also potentially providing ineffective assistance of counsel. This gives you a difficult but possible avenue for appeal. It also gives you a potential avenue to sue your attorney for malpractice. However, it is incredibly difficult to find an attorney who will sue another attorney.

If your attorney tells you that you do not have parental rights, respond with this. “The United States Supreme Court said in Troxel v. Granville, 530 US 57 – Supreme Court 2000, “In light of this extensive precedent, it cannot now be doubted that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment protects the fundamental right of parents to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of their children.” What exactly is it that takes this right away from me in divorce? What exactly is the due process that allows the court to violate my rights? Why will you not protect my right to due process? These rights have been well established at least since 2000. Why are you allowing the other side and the court to violate my well established rights?

Look to further posts to provide additional arguments of this type.

 

 

 

[i] Article VI of the U.S. Constitution: The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

 

 

 

 

[ii] Why does a judge swear to discharge his duties agreeably to the constitution of the United States, if that constitution forms no rule for his government? if it is closed upon him, and cannot be inspected by him?

If such be the real state of things, this is worse than solemn mockery. To prescribe, or, to take this oath, becomes equally a crime.

What do you do when there is no attorney that knows how to protect you?    



What do you do when there is no attorney that knows how to protect you?    

libert-tyranny1 statute of libertyHave you ever been told, “Well you had an attorney didn’t you? So what are you complaining about?” You are treated like that was enough, like that was sufficient. And then they look at you funny and act like they don’t understand why you are complaining. They act confused about why you didn’t like the outcome of mediation, why you didn’t like the outcome of your trial. They treat you like you actually got the representation that was necessary to get you the results that were equivalent to justice.

Few parents really know what kind of justice they should be getting. Most are so emotional and wrapped up in their preconceived ideas or the ideas an attorney has told them about divorce process and child custody that they don’t even know what their rights and their child’s rights really are. Often parents will assert their rights for a brief moment but give in to the system until they receive an intolerable result—having lost their child and having to pay their ex for that privilege.

When you later try to assert your rights you are seen as just trying to re-litigate because you are unhappy with the results. Which might be really what we believe you are doing at that point because of the way that you (or your attorney) presented your case. You most likely went in there and used all the old patterns and wrongheaded thinking that has been used for generations. [See Chapter 2 in our book “NOT in the Child’s Best Interest” for more examples of more wrongheaded thinking.]

How much better off would you be if you had asserted your constitutional rights from the beginning?

HARMLESS ERROR ANALYSIS

You could even be shut out from seeking justice afterwards based on something called a “harmless error analysis.” What this means is that the court believes that even if there was error that error was harmless to you and your case, therefore, they will do little or nothing about that error. You need to know how to challenge this effectively especially when you have an attorney. If your attorney doesn’t tell you that you have constitutional rights as a parent and you lose those rights, is it error and is it harmless?

INEFFECTIVE COUNSEL

Does your attorney have a duty to inform you of and to protect your constitutional rights? The rules of attorneys do not say that they have any duty to inform you about any fundamental parental rights. In fact, Department of Human Services in Indiana just recently changed their policies because they finally came to the “belief” that parents have a right to a relationship with their child!” Has it really taken them this long to figure this out when the Supreme Court has been saying this for more than 100 years?

You would think that this would have been part of the consideration before they start ripping your child out of your home. That’s the problem though, it has not been part of the process and still isn’t in most States. States have never integrated the 14th amendment into the family court process and procedures. The legislatures have never integrated this into the family code statutes either.

So when you are obtaining legal counsel, you are basically hiring someone to create a problem that gives the court a reason to invade your private family life and take over your child and take over your authority to make decisions regarding your child. They want you to believe that getting divorced or no longer being with the other parent warrants this. They also want you to believe that you created the problem and that they are just cleaning up your mess. So what happens when you find out that you have rights and that there is a way to prevent most of this battling and expensive litigation and lengthy delays? Perhaps could it be time to STOP WASTING MONEY ON ATTORNEYS THAT REFUSE TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS!

THEN YOU CANNOT FIND AN ATTORNEY TO DO IT

If you have tried calling attorneys and asking them to fight using your parental rights, you might have discovered that there aren’t any attorneys that will agree with you. If you tell them that you are unhappy with being told that you have to beat up the other parent regardless of whether or not you like the parent, you just want to go on and raise your child peacefully and without the control and bullying from the other parent, they tell you then you better get along with the other parent then and make an agreement with them, or you’ll have to fight the traditional way.

You start hearing attorneys telling you, this isn’t the way it is done, and that family courts don’t care about this unless it is a termination hearing. And that you are better off just getting the children on your side and getting the other parent to mess up and get the judge on your side. Or you are told that you should just take what you can get or what they are giving you because you cannot afford to fight and what you are proposing just isn’t going to work at the trial court level. And then you are told you cannot afford an appeal, and that appeals take a long time. And the list of excuses goes on and on like a story that never ends… And it really doesn’t if you keep following those patterns.

How many attorneys do you have to call before the panic sets in and you realize that there just might not be any attorneys who know how to protect your family rights? Parents tell us that they have called 50 to 100 attorneys only to be told that they have never heard of fundamental parental rights being protected at the trial court level in family courts. More than 40,000 law students graduate from law school every year.[i] How many of them have we found who know how to protect family rights in divorce – zero!

So how then can they call this harmless error if you cannot even find an attorney who even knows how to do the job properly with the least amount of harm to you and your child? What is being family law board certified then anyway if they don’t even know how to present your fundamental family rights? Here is what the Indiana court said about harmless error:

“But under the circumstances of this case, we do not think that the notion of prejudice can be viewed that narrowly or parallel a harmless error analysis. The harm here was more than merely the additional weight C.C.’s personal participation might have carried at the hearing.”[ii]

The additional weight that presenting your constitutional fundamental family rights from the beginning might have carried on your case is insurmountable. We feel that it isn’t harmless error for your attorney to fail to inform you of your rights and to fail to assert your rights at trial or in your motions and pleadings either! Trying to prove that though isn’t where we are going with this post. We raise this issue because too many parents and children are falling victim and are easy prey to the family court process because they don’t know that they have rights in the first place, they aren’t being told they have rights, they are being tricked into following patterns that can be more harmful to them than the divorce itself, and they don’t know where to go when they cannot find an attorney to represent them to protect their rights!

If you cannot find an attorney to do this for you, then what are you paying that attorney to do! Sometimes there isn’t anyone to pay to do the job for you, you just might have to do it yourself. We otherwise would tell you to find an attorney or consult with an attorney, we have done that, and the attorneys are not stepping up to the job. So what do you do when that kind of problem exists, you have to solve that problem too. We have done that.

Many people in the past have been faced with denial of their rights and they too had to do it themselves. During suffrage there were many women that fought. This however meant that there were individual women standing up for their individual right to vote. Those individuals suffered tremendously. Many of them had their child taken from them and many of them were thrown in prison and psych wards. Their freedoms were taken, they were threatened, bullied, and forced into going through things they didn’t consent to. It’s those individuals however that refused to give in and refused to give up that eventually changed this for everyone.

And then the same thing happened with ERA. Even though no constitutional ERA amendment was ever passed judicial rulings were made so that women’s equal rights could no longer be denied. Does that mean that women have not had to continue to fight for some of those rights still? Some they have had to fight for periodically. The right to equal pay is just one. Women had to know and believe that they deserved to have and fight for this however. Women had to get educated and trained so that they could accomplish the right to vote and the right to equal treatment in jobs, the military, and other places.

Parental rights are no different. You have to know that you have these and that you deserve protection of these. The U.S. Supreme Court has acknowledged that you have these. But they have refused to help you enforce them. So now just like every other person that has had to fight for their rights you will have to fight. You will be faced with fear from threats. You will be intimidated like those that were intimidated during the inquisition, and suffrage, slavery, the migrant farmworkers during Cesar Chavez, and the people in Missouri today.

If you cannot find someone else to do it for you, then that means you will have to do it yourself.

I wish that I could tell you that there is an attorney that you can count on. I wish that I could tell you that you won’t have to do anything hard or confusing or stressful. I wish that I could tell you that this isn’t going to be scary. I wish that I could tell you that you can make it all stop immediately and that you and your child won’t suffer.

I cannot tell you that, but I can tell you that we have better solutions and tools and ways for you to fight back against the tyranny. I can tell you that you will be more empowered and have more hope of overturning those that impose their abuse of power on you than anything I had when I went through it. I can tell you that without this information and these tools you will suffer more and longer.

I can tell you that you will be more able to face the fear and will be less likely to give in to that fear with these tools. All people that have fought for their rights before us in all the movements I mentioned above have faced this fear. And many have faced it in the courts. The fight for interracial marriages as in Loving was fought in the courts. The fight for desegregation of the schools was fought in the courts. The fight for justice for many lynchings were fought in the courts. The fight for gay rights is fought in the courts. Many people have had to face the fear that parents are facing today with nobody there to fight by their side, and sometimes it took time before others joined in the fight as well. They too had to face the fact that those that they thought were there to protect them are now attacking them.

If you want to maintain your rights with your child in the face of an inhuman system designed to destroy families that refuses to acknowledge, respect, and protect the rights that empower you and provide you with leverage to stand up to and against abuses of power by the State and by the other parent, then you can…

START YOUR TRAINING HERE and stop being afraid of the family court tyranny:

STEP 1: Read the book “NOT in The Child’s Best Interest” and learn your basic fundamental parental rights.

CLICK HERE to BUY THE BOOK FROM AMAZON Once you understand your rights you won’t be easy prey to wasted money and wasted time. Close the window of opportunity for controlling and narcissistic parents that want to cut you out or alienate you from your child. This is where you start. This book is used in the classes.

STEP 2: Get into the classes and learn your rights, how your rights protect you and your child, and how your rights work in the face of family court abuse of power:

CLICK HERE to ENROLL in the classes. The classes are all on video on the internet. You can do them on your own time. You can do them at your own pace. The time that it takes to take these classes is shorter than most people spend in battle in the family courts. Once you understand your rights you could save hundreds of thousands of dollars and delays and more loss of time with your children and loss of everything that you have earned and worked for.*

*STEP 3: Practice with us in a simulator so you know how to live your rights and know how to respond when faced with attack on your rights whether it be in a courtroom or outside a courtroom. [Only students are allowed to use the simulator at this time, so STEP 2 is required in order to practice in the simulator. It does you no good to practice and not know what your fundamental parental rights are.]

Anyone that tells you that appeals is a longer process than fighting the family courts the old way, check with others that have been through the family court battles the traditional way. Mine was 7 years, a parent in the movie Divorce Corp was 10 years. And those that I’ve read about or spoken to where it was initially shorter have ended up back in court over and over again and in a continuous battle where the parent they gave in to or the court forced them to be subject to chip away more and more at the little rights they were left with. In our experience, those that have allowed others to chip away at them and gave in to the bullying or gave in to their excuses why they needed to agree to give up some of their rights (some saying that it was putting the child first by giving the other parent your time with the child so the child could stay in the same routines and not have to make any changes) have found themselves back in battles over and over again, and many have found themselves alienated and in a situation where now they are dealing with parental alienation syndrome, depression, and PTSD from being made totally powerless and hopeless. They have no leverage and are just milked for everything they own and make. They have no way to live any longer and no hope to ever change it. We provide these courses and webinars and tools because it has become of such public importance and a public need, and with the hopes that these help you get free of the family courts so you can thrive again and have the freedom to make your own decisions on how you want to live again and be able to do this with your child.

ALIMONY BIAS AND PREJUDICE EXPOSED IN THE WAKE OF ROBIN WILLIAMS’ DEATH



Over the last few days since Robin Williams’ death I have watched a barrage of blogs, social media outlets, and videos expound and share their theories on Robin William’s reasons for suicide. They review his life, evaluate the possible causative factors, and then seem to sum it up in a way that is most comfortable or familiar for them or for the general public or perhaps in a way that doesn’t require a deeper review of difficult topics that challenge long held biases about the duties of husbands. It’s funny how life works that way. Once we see something as a duty, if we question it, we become the bad guy? We could be seen as questioning the very fabric of the American way of life. How very appropriate that the one comedian that brought us comedy about so many issues that were difficult to discuss would be the reason today that we are discussing the damaging beliefs we have developed about alimony. Where might these beliefs that it is the duty of one of the spouses to forever support the other after the marriage ends have come from? Perhaps the beginnings of this are rooted in the protestant belief of work ethic: “The term was first coined by Max Weber in his The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, written in 1904–05. The Protestant work ethic is often credited with helping to define the societies of Northern Europe and other countries where Protestantism was common (for example, the Scandinavian countries, the NetherlandsGermanySwitzerland, the United KingdomCanada, and the United States of America).”[i] This value held that man works to support his family. This has had a heavy and longlasting impact on society. Both in good and bad ways. These beliefs created more responsible citizens and a less dependent society on welfare and other means of support and led to the respect for the “self-made man”. These can be taken too far though and alimony is an example.

There comes a time when the basis for certain beliefs and values that society adopted need to be reviewed. And there comes a time when we need to run them through the balancing test that our Constitution demands. We have a system now where both men and women are responsible for themselves and their children equally. Yet the family courts continue to perpetuate the belief in many instances one person remains responsible to endow the other with support forever.

Many times it is the woman that is awarded alimony. The disadvantages that women had have become fewer and fewer over the generations. I won’t go into much depth on that here since I wish to keep this post short. You can read more on the history of Women’s rights and suffrage and the ERA if you wish to learn more about those issues. However, men are now being awarded alimony as well now, just not nearly as often. This is most likely due to the fact that we have moved to a much less gender biased society.

It bothers me every time I hear someone spout off and discount the effect that alimony had on Robin’s death because of other issues that he had. It is nauseating to read the unfounded biases that continue in our society and cause people to blame someone who the State turned into an involuntary servant for exercising a right to divorce.

It is shameful how people support the outdated notion of alimony being necessary to support someone who is able to support themselves and maintain the lifestyle of the marriage. There is so much injustice, suffering, and even death caused by this legal notion created solely to keep someone legally unequal.

A Voice For Men brought up alimony in a recent article called “Did the Family Courts Kill Robin Williams or was it just us?”[ii] and most of the responses seemed to be riled mostly with comments about the morality of suicide and drug and alcohol use. The comments seemed to have lost sight of the alimony issue. Where is the moral outcry against making someone a slave to another person based on nothing more than divorce? Oh but if we view alimony this way, we are called heartless and inconsiderate and receive a litany of reasons why the other person deserved to be punished for some outlandish behavior they had or indiscretion they committed.

It is almost sinful it seems to some to consider or even hint that perhaps the alimony awards could have played a major role in killing one of the most unique and talented comics of our time.

Over and over again, I read and hear people dance around the alimony idea having played a part. And witness repeated denials that alimony could have possibly played a role in taking down someone with so much money. YES, even someone who earned so much could have been burdened. And regardless of his earnings or ability to earn he deserved to be free from these imposed duties and obligations that forced him to earn based on archaic standards and without regard to constitutional balancing tests. Perhaps he was overburdened. But those that raise these possibilities can expect to get attacked by others who continue to be deeply embroiled in the continued bias and prejudice that a former marital partner is entitled to the future earnings of the other. They discount the application of Constitutional rights, or the fact that this might include the freedom and liberty to make new decisions after marriage or a relationship ceases to exist.

One of the reasons for this bias in Robin’s case could also be that Robin had more money than most of us could imagine and we cannot imagine financial issues ever being a burden on him. An example of those that completely refuse to admit that alimony had anything to do with his demise and ultimate death or that this could have imposed a great burden, are demonstrated in posts like the following one. (and no disrespect intended for the writer of this post as he genuinely was being very civil and expressing his thoughts – this is merely used as an example of how easily the impact of alimony can be missed or swept under the rug). The post read as follows:

buddhafyre 8 hours ago FUNNY, AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH HE WAS WORTH 50 -75 MILLION DOLLARS EVEN AFTER BITTER DIVORCES ALIMONY ETC……SO I DON’T THINK HE WAS CRYING ABOUT BEING BROKE….MORE LIKELY THE INCOME FROM THE SHOW KEPT HIM FROM HAVING TO DIP INTO HIS FINANCIAL RESERVES….ALSO ACCORDING TO THOSE WHO KNEW HIM BEST HE WAS DESPONDENT NOT ONLY ABOUT THE DIVORCES AND THE INABILITY TO KEEP THE FAMILY TOGETHER BUT ALSO ABOUT HAVING BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH PARKINSONS DISEASE……KNOW SOMETHING BEFORE YOU SAY SOMETHING”[iii]

My response to this post was: buddhafyre And don’t you think that another thing like Parkinson’s that would affect his ability to work might have pushed him over the edge, if you are required to stay on the hamster wheel and work to continue to support others in the lifestyle they have grown accustomed to with no regard to your own lifestyle? And being worth something doesn’t mean that is what is liquid and pays the daily bills and obligations. It seems like there is a major bias, not picking on you with it, but I mean overall, where the general populous refuses to consider that awarding alimony at these types of levels could lead to resulting in suicide.”[iv]

Keep in mind that failure to pay alimony gets you thrown in jail. Another misconception that seems to be rampant in the community lately is that Robin was totally free as a bird to make choices and live the kind of life that he wanted to live.

One person responding to Molyneaux’ video eulogy to Robin stated: “faultroy…Williams got exactly what he asked for his entire life and in the end, he got something that everyone in ANY society longs for–the Right To Choose how to live his life, and how to NOT live his life.”[v]

And my response was:faultroy I believe you missed the point, Robin, in the end, no longer had the ability or the freedom or the “Right To Choose how to live his life, and how to NOT live his life.” I realize that this too may be a concept that you may choose to reject. Could he choose not to work and still live the life that he had himself earned? Was he able to choose to keep his mementos and not sell them and still meet the obligations that the family courts had placed on him? Could he choose to be home with his family and still meet the obligations without having to sacrifice somewhere else?”[vi]

Very FEW people in the world get those choices after divorce, Robin certainly was no exception to the destruction and devastation that unconstitutional practices in the family law courts have on an individual’s life and their family.

So rather than view Robin’s death as a race for which singular issue caused his death, perhaps this is an opportunity to realize that Robin’s death, impacting as many people as it has, provides an opportunity to raise awareness in many areas.

Robin suffered in many ways that others also suffer. Perhaps there is some suffering we can reduce simply by recognizing our outdated biases regarding alimony. And while we cannot bring him back and remove the barbaric burdens that our family law courts imposed on him leaving him without fundamental personal choice in how to live his life; we can certainly use this as opportunity to stop the devastation others are feeling as a result of our outdated biases.

We can certainly work toward true equality even in divorce and empower people to thrive, dream, and drive their life to greatness as Robin once did!

I encourage everyone to realize, if you are one who is in the race to push a singular issue impacting Robin’s decisions and you are someone who needs to crush others attempts to raise awareness of other issues impacting Robin’s decisions, please stop for a moment and realize that there were a multitude of issues impacting Robin’s decisions. Each needs to be addressed by our society some through better science and others through examination of societal biases.

The more we advance as a society, the more we will be faced with multiple integrated issues that come together in unique ways to cause human suffering that can be avoided.

One of those issues that can be solved simply by evaluating our outdated biases is the issue of depriving one person of the right to make decisions in their life simply so another person can be financially provided for regardless of their own ability to support themselves. Do we really consider marriage in the 21st century to be an institution that can justify such a violation of personal liberties? What compelling state interest do we serve by making one ex-spouse a slave to the other simply because they divorced?

GRANDPARENTS HAVE THE RIGHT TO RAISE YOUR GRANDCHILD WHEN…



GRANDPARENTS HAVE THE RIGHT TO RAISE YOUR GRANDCHILD WHEN…

grandparents raising grandchildren 20111027_085511_grand1c_200Grandparents do have rights. If the biological parent of their grandchild wants to designate them to care for the child as opposed to the State or CPS or DHS adopting them out or placing them into foster care, it is certain that they have the right to have the child as designated by the fit parent.

Does the grandparent have to prove their fitness?

NO

Does the biological parent have to prove that their choice is better than CPS or DHS or a judge’s choice?

NO

Does the biological parent have to prove that they can take possession of their child in order to designate the grandparent the caretaker of the child?

NO

What then is the rule and the standard? Sherry and Ron B Palmer explain these arguments and here is a summary and a step-by-step list of what you should be looking for.

Many times a grandparent sits on the sidelines completely helpless. Their child wants them to raise their grandchild but the State steps in and decides that the grandparents will have to qualify like everyone else. And then the State sends the child to foster care or even gets the court to allow them to adopt them out!

This does not necessarily have to be the case. While grandparents may not have constitutional rights directly, there are other ways you can get your grandchild into your life when a biological parent is unable to care for the child and you would like to take the child into your care.

START HERE: First find out the following:

1.             Did the State have an adjudicative hearing with each of the biological parents?

2.             Did the State properly find the parent unfit?

a)            If the State is presuming the parent to be unfit, this is not the same thing as finding them unfit. Just because the State finds one parent unfit does not mean that both parents are unfit.

b)            If the State has a statute that allows them to presume a parent unfit because the other parent is found to be unfit, the Statute may be unconstitutional.

1. Presuming unfitness or not making a determination at all and then using State authority to take possession and control over a child against the unadjudicated parent’s wishes, does not make the statute constitutional.

3.             Is the parent unable to take direct possession of the child themselves due to being incarcerated, being in the military, or even being too far away to exercise their rights grounds for the State to skip an adjudicative hearing?

a) Being unable to take physical possession of the child by the biological parent does not sweep the parent’s rights away to decide who they wish to designate to care for their child. It is presumed that fit parents and unadjudicated parents make the best interest decisions for their child. So even when a State or CPS or DHS tries to get the parent to prove their fitness, if they have not adjudicated that parent properly, the parent does not have to prove anything to them. It is the burden of the State to prove authority over the parent.

4.              The state says that they determine best interest of the child.

a) If the State has not invoked their authority properly they cannot sweep the rights of the parent under the rug and do as they please with any child. Their parens patriae authority must be properly triggered. A finding of unfitness or clear and present danger would trigger this.

b) It is the State’s duty to prove that their authority is properly triggered.

c) The trial court and CPS or DHS will often try to intimidate you to follow what they or even make you think that whatever they say trumps anything you claim to be your rights. If you don’t make them prove it, then they can get away with this. It can be difficult to find someone to help you challenge CPS or DHS, so if you end up doing this on your own, there is new caselaw out there that you can use called “In RE Sanders” as well as our book, “NOT in The Child’s Best Interest.” We also have equal protection arguments on our page here: http://www.fixfamilycourts.com/rights-made-simple/

So from now on, if the State did not find the biological parent unfit and that parent is trying to give you care, custody, or control of your grandchild, and you want to help that parent get out from under service plans and other excuses and delays that the State is creating to disadvantage you and that parent, then you will need the due process violation and equal protection arguments.

So if you are going to spend money helping the parent find legal representation then find one that understands these arguments. If they cannot understand them on their own, we can help them learn the argument so that they can use it.

Basically, the argument is that if the State did not find the parent unfit properly then they have violated due process and a fit parent has protected fundamental rights to the care, custody, and control of their child. That means even if the parent cannot take possession of the child, the parent can designate another adult to take possession of the child during their time, and they do not have to prove their choice of caretaker’s fitness. This is essentially no different than a married couple hiring a babysitter or sending their child to military school.

Additionally, the State does not get to invade your privacy and make you prove your fitness as a grandparent or a caretaker of the child. Child Protective Services don’t get to do this either.

This is a very basic summary of how your rights should work in the face of fit parents who want the grandparents to care for and raise their child.

rights attorney san-jose-dui 2014[i]

Were you told by your attorney that “You have Rights, We Protect Them?” Probably not.

  1. You gave them money before you found out what you were buying! Where else do you do that? Who else would you give money too and not understand what the money is going to do for you? With something as important as your children and your future ability to be free to make your own life decisions, you would think that we would be more careful. But what happens when you are afraid and hurt and scared, you trust the people that claim to protect you. But what does that mean?

Before you turn over thousands of dollars to an attorney, shouldn’t you know what you are buying? Do you give anyone else $10,000 or even $20,000 up front and not know exactly what you are buying with that money? How many of you walk in and pay for a car outright? All of a sudden, in a divorce you are expected to fork over your entire life’s savings and sell everything you own and accept what they do and do what they say. What are you buying with that money? Are you buying to be bullied or forced into things that make you powerless or keep you under the control of the courts or your ex?

results-or-excuses-not-both 2014[ii]

  1. You and your attorney have different ideas of what is a good result.

Do you know what your attorney thinks is a good result? What if you and your attorney are not thinking the same? What if your attorney thinks it’s a good result if he just keeps you out of court no matter the cost to you long term, regardless of whether you are made a visitor in your child’s life or whether you have to pay for counseling forever. What if your attorney thinks it is a win to get you just a little bit more than you have already, but not what you had in mind and that was having your rights back and not having to support the other parent forever. What if you paid your attorney all of this money and now they threaten to quit and get hostile with you when you tell them that you are not happy with being forced into their idea of a good deal? Is that what you paid for? REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR AND FIND OUT HOW TO STOP THROWING YOUR MONEY AWAY. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR ON TUESDAY

  1. You didn’t set any boundaries.

Do you know what your attorney plans to give up on your behalf to keep you out of court? How do you set these boundaries? What are these boundaries? If you don’t know then you subject yourself to the ones that the attorney decides. And what is your attorney giving up on your behalf in court? When you talk to your attorney about your options are you only given that the judge decides if you end up in court? Are you being left open and vulnerable even though you thought you paid for protection? Did you define this protection?winning image 2014[iv]

  1. You didn’t define what winning looks like and you weren’t explained the consequences of what winning on the attorney’s terms gives up.

Do you know what your attorney considers a win? Some attorneys, most think that winning is getting a little more than what you have had taken from you. Some think that winning is staying out of court. And then others think that winning is intimidating until one side gives in or runs out of money. Is this the kind of winning you had in mind?

see speak hear no malfeasance cartoon clearingthefogradio 20140608[v]

  1. You didn’t tell your attorney what you weren’t willing to bargain away.

Are you paying an attorney to bully you and tell you to give in to the other side? When you asked the attorney to help you, did you just leave it up to the attorney how they would help and what would be part of that help? Did you end up with family studies and psych evals because the attorney said that’s what needed to be done in order to get to where you were asking to be? Are you asking for something that puts you at more risk? Did your attorney explain any of this?

What does it mean when an attorney tells you that they will file motions and pleadings and respond to the other attorney? What is in these motions and pleadings and what are the consequences of those?

We hope this isn’t happening to you. But if it is we know that you may feel like you have no choice. And you are right if you continue to give your attorney money without finding out what you are going to get for that money.

At the end of this webinar you will know how to fix this and you’ll have a template of a agreement you can use to clarify what you expect when you hire an attorney.

Before you go any further find out what you should be asking for and when you might be paying an attorney to bully you to give in and give up.

If you are being told that what they are offering you is better than what you have and you are a fit parent, why are you paying for someone to give up your rights and your child’s rights. Is that what you thought you were paying for?

Attend this webinar and leave with a contract that you can present to attorneys to make sure that you are making it clear what you are willing to pay for and what you are not.

Attend this webinar and know how to make your money work for you and what you want done and not what someone else dictates to you. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER: REGISTER ME NOW

Take control over how your money is used. Know when to walk and find someone else. Know what to do if you cannot find anyone and have to do it yourself.

All this and more in this webinar. It’s tomorrow so enroll before the seats are gone. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU THINK I SHOULD SIGN THAT DEAL! Don’t let yourself fall into this trap. Get the help that you need now so that you won’t be caught here after you’ve given your attorney $10,000 to $20,000 dollars. That’s right you’ll pay just about anything to keep your child and to prove that you are right and that you did nothing wrong, and they know this. Next thing you know you’ll be running out of money and they’ll be telling you to sign off on something that you don’t like and telling you “that’s the best deal you’re going to get.”

Don’t gamble with your money and your children’s futures. Don’t give your future away where you can’t rebuild after your divorce!

So many people are suffering from being broke because you fought to be with your child…don’t let this happen to you or someone you love!

So many people are suffering from fear and anxiety because they are facing jail because they are behind in paying child support, alimony, etc…

So many people are suffering because every time they fight back they lose more and are beat down further…

They didn’t know there were different choices they could make. They trusted attorneys that continue the same patterns and the same fight over and over again that gets these same results.

It’s your divorce and your life, right. You decided that you don’t want to be under the control of the other parent any longer. And then you got divorced…and now nothing is what it was supposed to be!

Did you know that “elephants are conditioned to believe that they can’t move about freely when they are tied by the right rear leg. From the moment this conditioning takes hold, you can tie a string and they won’t move. The elephants at the circus didn’t roam about because they believed they couldn’t. The tethers in their minds were stronger than any chain or rope.”

Family courts are doing this to parents! They make you believe that there is nothing you can do.

Did you believe that the attorneys, therapists, and courts get to tell you what to do after you get divorced?

Did you believe that they had a right to force you into family studies and psych evals?

Did you believe that one parent was supposed to be appointed as the primary when the two parents couldn’t agree?

Did you believe that if a statute says that the State can do it that this Statute is the final word?

Did you believe that it was more expensive to appeal than to just do what they say?

Did you believe that you had no choices?

Did you believe that being told no by the courts or your attorney meant that you shouldn’t challenge that “no?”

Did you believe that divorce triggered all of this authority?

Did you believe that the family courts did not have to follow Supreme Court opinions?

Did you believe that you were hurting your child by fighting the family courts, the attorneys, and your ex from taking over your rights to your child?

Did you believe that fighting for your rights was not thinking about the best interest of your child?

Did you believe that the court gets to decide best interest of your child?

Divorce Courts Act in Their Own Interests



Divorce Courts Act in Their Own Interests

Divorce-Court-Interests

Multiple Federal Appellate Courts have found that children have a right to familial association with their parents and that these rights are fundamental rights. The Supreme Court has placed the right to free association into the category of First Amendment rights as the right of free speech would be meaningless without the right to associate with others. First Amendment rights as we know require enhanced scrutiny.

When both parents in divorce are fit, there is absolutely no rational basis for depriving the child of equal association rights with both fit parents. Doing so creates a second class child based on nothing more than the marital status of the parents. This as we know violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Divorce Court Judges who deny a child’s right to free and equal association with both fit parents are acting in the Divorce Court’s interests NOT the child’s.

To learn more about this and other family law constitutional issues read our book: NOT In the Child’s Best Interest or inquire about taking one of our courses.
