Did you know abused children of divorce are in grave danger?
Children from divorcing families who disclose incest or violence are likely to be taken from their safe parents and placed with abusers.
Six year old Susie (not her real name) was taken away from her nurturing loving mother and given to her registered sex offender father. Her father had been in prison for sexually abusing his other daughter when she was exactly Susie's age. Her father basically grew his own victim, and can now do whatever he wants to her.
How could that happen?
Children of divorce are treated like property to be divided by family court. The parent with the most money, connections and power gets the prize. This shameful situation mostly affects non-offending protective mothers and their children. California Protective Parents Association has received well over 3000 contacts from mothers but only 10 from fathers.
Battered women trying to protect their abused children often do not have money to pay attorneys, and lose their children. The children their lose their childhoods, their innocence, their safety, and in some cases, their lives.
How can we help change this situation?
We can each contact our Congress member and ask for Congressional Oversight Hearings on the failure of family courts to ensure children are safe in their homes.
