Not intended as legal advice, this book offers support for anyone navigating a treacherous child custody case in family court. After years as an executive director of a nonprofit that assisted families who were victims of family court racketeering, the author has written this guide to warn families of the dangers of harm to themselves and their children, emotionally and financially, based on numerous case studies of families she worked with. When family court professionals, such as ad litems, amicus attorneys, attorneys, counselors, or forensic custody evaluators, get swept up by the profit motive, they fail to represent the children they serve. Instead, they target the parents’ and in some cases, grandparents’ nest eggs and families get caught up in a constellation of expensive court ordered services that can span for years, until every drop of the family’s assets are drained. This guide will assist you if you have not yet entered family court, if you are caught up in the throes of an expensive legal battle, or if your case has concluded and you realize you are a victim of family court racketeering, in which case this guide will direct you on how to pursue suits for damages to try to reclaim your children’s financial future.
