The Family Court Turkey: Who Gets That “Award” In Your Case?
Administrator’s Note: This is the first of a three-part series we call the “Thanksgiving Trilogy” or Turkey Trilogy. The entire series was first published on Thanksgiving Day 2016. And now we are featuriung it each day in succession on Black Friday weekend. With all the uncompensated work we have put into our joint reform efforts over the years, we have neither the resources nor the time to make it viral. We leave that to you, our fellow victims, tortured as you must be right now. So kindly pick one, pick them all, and make good therapy of your time by sending them out to the world. Send it to your representative in Congress or state legislature, a commission, good government group, your lawyer, even your parent “adversary.” Maybe you’ll be very happy you did.
THE heartbroken parents of a young man who committed suicide after his daughters were taken from Jersey, by their mother, have spoken to the JEP following the States’ decision this week to approve a new law on parental responsibility.
The couple approached the JEP last year to reveal that their son, aged 27, took his own life in August 2014 after many months of unsuccessfully trying to get his daughters back to Jersey after they were taken to eastern Europe by their mother.
They called on the JEP, politicians and lawyers to help them with their campaign to change the law to give unmarried fathers more rights.
But today, their relief at seeing the new law finally passed was overshadowed with sadness at the fact it took the death of their son to bring about the change.
The change to the law, which will be brought into effect in the next few months, will mean that unmarried biological fathers named on a birth certificate will have the same parental rights as married fathers.
Your Board of Directors has the great pleasure of announcing that Family Law Reform (FamilyLawReformUSA.com), will be merging with the National Parent Organization (NationalParentsOrganization.org).
The joining of these two extraordinary organizations very similar in culture, and with practice strengths that are highly complementary, will enable us to provide a much stronger voice for reforming current divorce law in Florida, and eventually Nationwide. The National Parents Organization, being the larger of the two organizations both in finances and membership, will retain its namesake, with Family Law Reform becoming the Florida Chapter of the National Parents Organization. Alan Frisher, our President, will serve as Executive Director of this Florida Chapter with Chuck Reintertsen, our Treasurer, sitting on the Board of Directors of the National Parents Organization.
You can expect from the new organization the same focus, the same dedication, and the same team that you have come to know and trust. The difference is that there will now be many more of us, with an eye toward future issues such as child sharing, child support, parental alienation, military divorce, etc. First and foremost, however, we plan on obtaining Legislative Sponsors to introduce our proposed alimony reform bill to the Florida House and Senate this upcoming Legislative session.
By Dr. Leon R. Koziol of the Parenting Rights Institute
I am proposing an extraordinary writ from the Supreme Court to hear its first ever shared parenting case mandated by the Constitution and proper accountability for the routine violations of basic rights in our nation’s divorce and family courts.
Unlike the standard petitions for writ under Rule 14 of the Supreme Court, I will be filing under Rule 2o. It is a rarely used form of petition “in aid of the court’s jurisdiction.”
You will join as a separate petitioner and not as a party represented by me. I am not acting as a legal advisor. This is a bold and timely petition seeking greater access for parents before our high court.I will ask that a Special Master be appointed to investigate an epidemic in these courts with hearings held around the country should the Court accept this petition.
If a sufficient number of parents or court victims join, I will prepare the petition for viewing. You can retain counsel if you like and a period will be set aside from the time of publication here for you to withdraw your participation in the event you disapprove of any aspect of that completed petition. You can also offer input or modifications but keep in mind that I have little assistance and resources. My time is better spent here and your time can be ideally applied to viral assistance, recruitment and donations.
FEDS ABANDON ‘EQUAL RIGHTS‘ CLAIM TO RAISE YOUR KIDS
‘Much work to be done before decades of federal overreach is reversed’
Federal officials have reversed their claim that they have “equal rights” to children to raise them, a claim that stirred outrage in many quarters of America when it was first made a few months back.
The claim originally was included in a draft policy by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Education and generously allowed that parents, too, should be allowed to help raise their own children along with the government, through various programs.
The newest release of the statement, however, now provides that, “Families are children’s first and most important teachers, advocates, and nurturers. Strong family engagement in early childhood systems and programs is central – not supplemental – to promoting children’s healthy intellectual, physical, and social-emotional development; preparing children for school; and supporting academic achievement in elementary school and beyond. Research indicates that families’ involvement in children’s learning and development impacts lifelong health, developmental, and academic outcomes.”
The HSLDA had blasted the earlier statement, in fact, dispatching Estrada to meet with senior officials from the U.S. Department of Education and “personally” explaining the significant issues with the draft statement, including opposition from parents to the “bureaucratic arrogance.”
The change is a very mich improved version, the HSLDA pointed out, making clear that “families have strong and sustained effects on children’s learning, development, and wellness.”
“Despite this victory,” the group explained. “there are other problems with the document that remain. The document’s working definition of ‘family’ still includes not only a child’s parents or legal guardians, but ‘all adults who interact with early childhood systems in support of their child, to include biological, adoptive, and foster parents; grandparents; legal and infromal guardians; and adult siblings.’”
HSLDA exlained, “In situations where conflict may exist between a child’s parents and other family members regarding educational choices, this still quite broad definition of family is not hepful for clarity regarding parental rights in education.”
The organization explained, “There is much work to be done before decades of federal overreach in K-12 education is reversed.”
The document does still include a suggestion that families and institutions “partner” to give children better results in school.
WND reported the original plan by the government was to “systematically” engage families about their own children.
“At HSLDA, we believe that these statements reveal these agencies’ true beliefs: that a child’s God-given family does not matter. Family is whomever or whatever the government says it is,” Estrada wrote at the time.
He cited other government agendas, such as pushing the political correctness in Common Core, “dangerous U.N. treaties,” as well as suggestions for universal preschool.

The equality4men campaign is concerned with the inequalities that impact men and boys of all backgrounds at every stage of life. The years when boys first enter adulthood are the most vulnerable years of most men’s lives.
2. Premature Death ~ Compared with women of the same age, young men are four times more likely to die in an accident, four times more likely to kill themselves and three times more likely to be murdered. On average, five young men die prematurely every single day and most of these deaths are avoidable.
3. Murder ~ Young men are three times more likely to be murdered than young women with 3 young men being murdered every week in England & Wales.
Over the years I have been most inspired by the work of Omar and David Inguanzo from their group Children’s Rightsand would call o all like mined folk to join us and make the breakthrough 3000th memberby this Easter! I am also honoured to be regarded as a cause leader within the group.
Along with other campaigners such as Donald Tenn, David Carlin, Anthony Lemons, Second Class Citizen .org and many more who know the massive challenges that still lie ahead through out the USA. Here in the UK there seems a modest groundswell towards reform and feel I would like to see this hope extended to other associated fighting for justicein Family Courts and reforming child welfare organisations to start acting as they are expected to !
