Divorce & Parental Alienation

 

DIVORCE & TACTICS USED AGAINST FATHERS TO GAIN CHILD CUSTODY

 

False allegations of abuse are commonplace in divorce.  Known by such names as the ‘nuclear option’ or the ‘silver bullet technique,’ false allegations are a quick way to gain the upper hand in child custody actions.   Some of the most vocal opponents of Shared Parenting are domestic violence focused organizations.  Domestic violence victims deserve relief and assistance.  Those who use this issue to deny children a relationship with one of their parents, deserve sanctions.

Domestic Violence

 

MORE MEN THAN WOMEN ARE VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

 

According to a 2010 national survey by the Centers for Disease Control and U.S. Department of Justice, more men than women were victims of intimate partner physical violence and over 40% of severe physical violence was directed at men. Men were also more often the victim of psychological aggression and control over sexual or reproductive health. Despite this, few services are available to male victims of intimate partner violence.

Military - False Allegations

 

HEROES SHOULD NEVER SUFFER FOR CRIMES THEY DIDN'T COMMIT

 

While it’s appalling that any citizen of this country would be wrongfully imprisoned and stripped of their rights, it’s exceptionally shameful when it happens to a soldier, sailor, marine, or airman serving this country. Someone who volunteered to defend our Constitution should never have his/her Constitutional rights abused or wrongfully taken away.(Source: Save Our Heroes).
