I am a lawyer. It didn’t help me any. We need to create a network of lawyers in all 50 States who are experts in this. I have attended Family Law bar meetings (not lately) but the INDUSTRY of family law from a lawyer’s perspective is “for profit” and “winning.” Until we have a group of lawyers that actively believe that the for profit/winning mentality is superceded by saving a relationship (good luck) no one ever can win.
We need to start collating cases. That means, having court observers, reading the dockets for your county, and finding ALL the targeted parents. I am sure everyone knows the AMBER law, for a missing child, but there isn’t crap for the targeted parent. Sadly as a pragmatist, and a survivor, venting is one thing, but changing things is another. I want ANOTHER.
This only works if this group wants to do the hard work. I know that I LOST at every turn. I was outsmarted and out maneuvered and I have exactly zero trust left. None. I don’t trust anyone, anywhere. Everything I did was used against me.
Tonight on 60 minutes was a young man who started teaching the law to men in African prisons 13 years ago. He is making change and was on Amanpour and 60 minutes. Lawyers are smart. They will find an answer to every answer. So we have to be smarter.
I have lost both my children. I have nothing better to do for the rest of my life. Who wants to do this? Not alone. I can’t do it alone. I waited to long.
