Topic: Confirmed: Family Courts Fail Children in Abuse Cases
The lesson from Coronavirus crisis is to listen to the scientists. The family courts have failed to integrate critical research like ACE and Saunders. Without ACE they minimize the harm of DV and child abuse. Without Saunders, they disbelieve true reports of abuse. Over 700 children involved in contested custody have been murdered in the last ten years. Taken together, the research confirms courts are getting a large majority of DV custody cases wrong. The solution is the Safe Child Act.
