Family Court Corruption and All of Its Players

(emphasis mine)

Family Court Corruption, Part 2: Fathers' Rights and Conciliation Court Law: Federally funded misogyny and pedophile protection by Cindy Ross © 2/19/03


...The National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) was founded in 1994, to "lead a society-wide movement to confront the problem of father absence", i.e., to embed the fathers' rights agenda into government policies and programs. [21] In 1995, former President Clinton issued executive orders that directed federal agencies to review and "modify" all family programs and initiatives serving primarily mothers and children, to include fathers and "strengthen their involvement" with children. [22]

President George W. Bush, has appointed NFI founding officials to high level positions in the present Administration; Wade Horn is Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services and Don Eberly is in the White House Office of Faith Based Initiatives. Under the control of these and other fathers' rights allies -- especially former OCSE Commissioner David Gray Ross (a frequent presenter for CRC) -- the federal Department of Health and Human Services Office of Child Support Enforcement has been turned into a men's custody agency. While publicly touted as "responsible fatherhood programs" official federal documents say the purpose of their programs is to provide noncustodial fathers with free attorneys to litigate for custody. [4]

AFCC affiliated experts who have established federal "model custody" programs using PAS methodology, include Joan Kelly, a founding official of CRC, and Judith Wallerstein of the Center for the Family in Transition. Richard Gardner originally based his PAS theory on Wallerstein's and Kelly's research. [23]

Joan Kelly sets up family court services programs and trains judges and "special masters" (mediators with quasi-judicial authority), using Access to Visitation grant funding. She is also connected -- primarily through CRC -- to Michael Lamb, of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Kelly and Lamb promote materials developed by Richard Gardner (and other pedophiliac experts), in conferences and seminars regarding "parenting time" and "alienation". [8]

Judith Wallerstein, is an advisor to NFI. According to CA NOW's "Family Court Report 2002", in 1986, Wallerstein provided testimony -- along with David Levy of CRC -- to the House committee on Children, Youth and Families. regarding the "problems of single female parent families". [24]

Members of Wallerstein's Center for the Family in Transition and Kelly's Northern CA Mediation Center, have "reformulated" PAS as "alienated children", possibly to distance themselves from Richard Gardner. However, in addition to being connected to some of the most egregious local (Marin County, CA) PAS cases, as the "Northern CA Task Force on the Alienated Child", their group promotes PAS custody switching methods and "threat therapy" at AFCC conferences around the country and the world. [25]

Wallerstein, Horn, Eberly and others connected to NFI, CRC and AFCC have expanded the Conciliation Court agenda to include not only divorce prevention, but marriage promotion. By merging conciliation court and fathers' rights agendas with a "faith based" marriage "movement", they call for even more federal programs promoting "two-parent" families, through "marriage initiatives" funded by TANF/Welfare grants. [26]

In the guise of reducing poverty and promoting child welfare, women are forced to stay married and mothers are punished for seeking divorces. In the guise of amicable custody resolution, federal programs enforce the systematic abuse of women and children. The pretense is that government programs produce responsible fathers and healthy families. The reality is that federally funded misogyny and pedophile protection programs are lining the pockets of corrupted court officials and appointees.
