Is family court really a “kids for cash” business?
An estimated 58,000 children a year are court-ordered for custody or unsupervised visitation with reported abusers. That means in many cases, children are being ordered to live with their rapists. Child custody courts are generating approximately $50 billion dollars a year from the business of exploiting families in crisis and putting children in direct harm’s way. Adverse childhood experiences are the most basic cause of health risk behaviors, morbidity, disability, mortality, and health care costs. In fact, it costs taxpayers $500 billion dollars a year in health care related costs due to adverse childhood experiences.

Safe Child Act: Making health, safety of CT children the priority
“The most dangerous time for a woman victim of DV is when she leaves her abusive partner. Once an abuser recognizes that he has lost control, he will seek control in other ways. Most court professionals fail to understand that custody is the most common tactic used by these abusers. Court professionals have been taught to treat contested custody as “high conflict cases, but between 75-90 percent are really these dangerous DV cases…
It is time that custody courts stop practices that pressure victims to cooperate with their abusers and instead force abusers to stop their abuse if they want a relationship with their children. It is time for the courts to integrate important research like ACE and Saunders into their practices. It is time to reform outdated practices from the 1970s.” -Barry Goldstein
