Dysfuntional Divorce System Harms Children

The California AFCC in 2008 called upon the Judicial Council which runs the state courts, the State Bar, the Association of Certified Family Law Specialist and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers to join in demanding adequate, immediate and sustained resources to address these concerns.  And 12 other organizations concerned with family law signed on to this resolution, but nothing in the past eight years has been done to correct the damaging process.
One national organization concerned with child development is Advocates for Child Empowerment & Safety (ACES) “… dedicated to raising the voices of children to empower them and ensure their safety from physical abuse, sexual abuse and unsafe environments. “
ACES activities include “developing and advocating for policies, regulations, and government programs to improve child safety.” but it has not specifically advocated any new family law processes.
Twelve states have rewritten their family law codes regarding divorce to call for “parenting plans,” but some still use that hostile “C” word–custody– along with “parenting.”  Those states are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia. Tiger Woods did a parenting plan in his divorce in Florida.  Cowboys in Texas do parenting plans. Mountain men in Montana do parenting plans. Shouldn’t everybody?
