When a family court judge gave custody to the identified abuser, it was Holly Collins- a Mother from Minnesota who had two choices; suffer the ongoing abuse she had fled when seeking a divorce or help her children to safety.
Holly Collin’s Story is unique, No American Mother before her has received asylum and protection from Violence and Child Abuse…Holly had to flee the United States to protect herself and her children. Her story of Domestic Violence and Court Ordered Abuse of her children however is not unique (1 in 3 women experience forms of DV). These same events are being experienced by mothers and children across our Nation, and around the world.
When mothers report abuse they lose custody 85% of the time. In Gonzales Vs USA the Supreme Court decision stated that Law Enforcement is not obligated to enforce restraining orders. There is no protection. No ERA in the USA. This first world nation has third world problems and it is about time we own up to the abuse of women in a patriarchal society.
Today, America mothers are being conditioned to shut up about abuse or lose custody. Your children are safer with you 50% of the time then without you 100%. Do not call CPS if you suspect abuse, the catch 22 is that if you report abuse you are more likely to lose custody than protect your young. Law enforcement fails to protect. In the US, its the relationship of the perpetrator to the victim that will determine whether they prosecute. Those who run are considered fugitives we consider them heroes.
In America today, victims of abuse and their children have no way out but one.
“According to a conservative estimate by experts at the Leadership Council on Child Abuse and Interpersonal Violence (LC), more than 58,000 children a year are ordered into unsupervised contact with physically or sexually abusive parents following divorce in the United States. This is over twice the yearly rate of new cases of childhood cancer.
Experts at the LC consider the crisis in our family courts to constitute a public health crisis. Once placed with an abusive parent or forced to visit, children will continue to be exposed to parental violence and abuse until they reach 18. Thus, we estimate that half a million children will be affected in the US at any point of time. Many of these children will suffer physical and psychological damage which may take a lifetime to heal. The Leadership Council urges citizens to work with legislators and agencies in their communities to examine this problem, review state agency policies and procedures, and develop legislative and policy solutions that help ensure safety from violence for children following divorce.” Leadership Council

When Garland Waller set out to document the inspiring story of Holly Collins and Her Children she did so with the effort to bring to the big screen the issues of Domestic Violence Victims Denied Justice and Protection in the US and the pattern of state court judges trafficking children in the United States. When we consider the fact that known perpetrators are being given custody of vulnerable children over and above the pleadings of safe mothers with evidence in hand we must consider this trafficking. Sold to the highest bidder. Mothers are out spent and out maneuvered and courts are failing to provide equal protection and representation under the law. Motivated by the fact that Americans need to see the truth of what’s happening in Courts across the nation, No Way Out But One was created. Holly Collins and her Children would become the first Americans to be given Asylum in the Netherlands. Amazingly, In September of 2011, Holly and her children safely returned to the United States after years of living as fugitives. Theirs is a story of hope, determination, and, ultimately, justice. In the process of learning about Court Ordered abuse and trafficking, we wanted people to be inspired and motivated to take action.
