We are braver than we know! We are stronger than we know!
DivorcedMoms, in partnership with Lorilyn Bridges, has started a social campaign called, Change This Now to bring awareness to the harm suffered by women in the Family Court System. When a woman files for a divorce or is left by her husband she not only finds herself divorced from her spouse but in the majority of cases DIVORCED FROM JUSTICE.
THIS MUST CHANGE NOW!
The closed nature of the Family Court allows it to operate without the usual (and legislated) checks and balances to ensure it acts fairly, safely and lawfully. The closed nature of the Family Court makes it difficult for media to report on cases, impossible for members of the public to scrutinize and dangerous for women to speak out about – as in doing so they are immediately identifiable and they are telling us that if they do speak out they are ‘punished’ at their next court appearance or by their ex.
Women often do not speak out about the abuse they experience by the Family Court or a high conflict spouse because they are fearful of the court’s and their spouse’s response to that, they think they will be judged, they feel that no one will understand, they fear they will be punished by society.
Women, more often than not, are left to live with the repercussions of a Family Court system that views THEM as hysterical females or, worse yet, less worthy of justice by the mere fact that they are women.
THIS MUST CHANGE NOW!
Mothers are being punished for trying to protect their children and their own financial interests.
For years we’ve heard that the Family Court is biased against men. Join us in debunking the notion that men are penalized in Family Court. Join us and share your story of how, as a woman, you were penalized and harmed by the Family Court and a high conflict ex when trying to protect yourself, your children and your legal rights.
