Creating awareness of the unfortunate double binds women and children are faced with when trying to leave, especially legally, from an abusive partner or spouse. Bringing to the forefront the lack of accountablity of abusers through the legal system and our churches. We are here to empower women and children by simply providing accurate knowledge and the understanding they are not alone. Our only desire is to update, re-educate with compassion and understanding concerning the dynamics of spousal abuse, and the long term effects abuse has on children held captive by it.
Our long term goal is to make abuse a relevent issue in divorce proceedings. Snuffing out the myth that abuse stops once you leave, abuse will continue and usually gets more severe. Children are extensions of their mothers and are at critical risk of further abuse during and after divorce.
We want to push for new laws in family court allowing for full support of families when trying to flee from abuse legally. If spousal abuse is present or suspected all children should get manditory supervised visitations for an extended period of time. We are striving to acquire funding for state and regional visitation centers to be available so women and children are thoroughly supported when divorcing from an abusive spouse.
WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU.
1. What to expect when divorcing from abuse, child visitaton and custody issues.
2. Children and finances: The two pivotal points of control.
3. The irrelevence of spousal abuse in visitation or custody matters. Access to children for an abusive spouse is the same weather you have sole or joint custody, there are NO safety nets for children having to visit an abusive spouse.
4. How to safely manuever land mines set up by family court sytems.
(ex: missed visits by protective parent allows the abuser to criminally prosecute and intimidate the abused spouse, while there are NO consequences by the court if the abuser misses or skips out on visitation.)
5. Understanding the double binds created by the lack of education throughout the family courts. What attitudes to expect when dealing with family court players, such as lawyers, CPS, judges, DHS, Court advocates, restraining order hearings, and homeless shelter personel.
6. Pros/Cons of representation.
