Convicted Child Abusers should be required to forfeit parenting rights.

Currently in Massachusetts a parent who is convicted of Intentional Assault & Battery with bodily injury on a child under 14 years old is still fully entitled to parental rights. Initially the judge gives visitation and occasionally in a center. Not only are these centers biased towards one parent but judges in Massachusetts are not versed in domestic violence and child abuse. As a result they are using out dated information to the detriment of  our children’s safety. I am in the process of writing a petition to change the law in Massachusetts that limits the family & probate courts power after a conviction of child abuse and domestic violence to over ride a restraining order and allow them to revoke parental rights.
