Children's wants and needs should come first, but that is not the way it is in family court especially with GALs. The Guardian Ad Litems, Family Courts, and sociopathic bio-dads go the extra mile to protect themselves and defend their lies rather than protect the innocent children involved. They don't care the damage they're doing to the children.
Verbal abuse and child custody needs remain mutually exclusive in family court decisions because verbal abuse is not against the law. Verbal abuse is wrong no matter what. So sad children have to deal with this & no they don't believe them.
Family Court doesn't mean it's family friendly. It's where perjury & lying under oath is okay. It's where justice is denied to so many families. It's where children are emotionally abused & the judges ignore it. STOP THE ABUSE!
