Audit Family Court

Domestic violence victims are being ignored in family courts across the country. Rogue family court judges, lawyers, mediators, psychologists and guardians ad litem are ignoring the pleas of victims in family court and place them directly in close proximity with an abuser.
The Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) is a United States federal law. It It provided $1.6 billion to enhance investigation and prosecution of violent crimes perpetrated against women, imposed automatic and mandatory restitution on those convicted, and allowed civil redress in cases prosecutors chose to leave unprosecuted. VAWA is not working to protect victims who seek basic human and civil rights on a daily basis in family court.  Responsible Fatherhood Intitiatives are funding these murders! We demand that our government take action now as we can no longer afford to be silent and we won't. Stop court ordered abuse now!  You can order a federal investigation and/or audit into family court system and how they are failing domestic abuse victims and their children.
