The Children’s Justice Campaign is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising social consciousness as to the breadth and scope of iniquities committed against innocent children by the U.S. family court system. Through a massive media campaign, the CJC seeks to educate the general public about the health and safety risks to children exposed to current family court practices, using statistics, scientific research, and victim testimony. Our mission is to inspire fellow Americans to take action, demanding transparency and accountability within our courts, and ultimately creating new standards of practice that will honor the needs of a child by making their physical and emotional wellbeing the top priority in divorce and custody litigation.

This means, courts are sending a lot of children to live with their rapist. Barry Goldstein, Author and DV Expert
Most contested custody cases are domestic abuse or child abuse cases in which the abuser has been allowed to use the courts to regain control over their victim, and bankrupt the safe, primary care giving, protective parent. The Nurtured Parent Support Group for Survivors of Domestic Abuse

Inadequately trained professionals tend to believe the myth that mothers frequently make false allegations. 2012 U.S. Department of Justice Dr. Daniel Saunders Report

Criminal courts—with the heavy burden on proof beyond a reasonable doubt—will convict people for crimes of abuse on the same evidence that family court judges deem to be no evidence at all. Richard Ducote, Esq.
