Our Constitutional right to bear arms is front and center in state and federal legislatures. But where is the debate on protecting our basic human rights to parent our children? (also constitutionally protected by the 14th amendment) Every day in every state, mothers and fathers lose their basic human right to parent their children.
Why? Because the divorce industry wants your family’s money! Estimated at $170 Billion annually! How?
We all have a family member, friend or neighbor who has been through a nasty divorce. Most of us believe children need both parents equally and that there exist a standard of 50/50 custody that the courts start from. NOT TRUE!!!!
THERE IS NO PARENTING TIME STANDARD!!! THIS LACK OF STANDARD CREATES 90% OF ALL DIVORCE CONFLICT AND DIVORCE LITIGATION!!! IT DESTROYS FAMILIES AND LIVES!!! STOP IT NOW!!!!!
In litigated divorce, there is no standard as to how children should spend their time between parents. The lack of a parenting time standard causes our children to be viewed as a prize where unethical lawyers and custody evaluators use them as pawns between parents. If there were a parenting time standard, it would resolve over half of divorce litigation taking place right now.
MAKE PRESUMPTIVE 50/50 THE REBUTTABLE STANDARD AND ELIMINATE CUSTODY EVALUATIONS
Start with the presumption that both parents are fit and entitled to an equal role in their children’s lives. This presumption is rebuttable only by findings of fact based upon a preponderance of evidence in abuse, neglect or addiction. Everything else unconstitutionally denies parents their rights to parent children.
ONLY OUR LEGISLATORS CAN PROTECT US FROM THE DESTRUCTION OF DIVORCE WITHOUT OBJECTIVE AND EQUAL STANDARDS
The divorce industry is $170B annually and motivated to oppose standards so they can create, promote and perpetuate conflict to increase billing hours expodentially. Have you ever heard “It's only the lawyers who win in divorce”? Add to lawyers: custody evaluators (duplicate roles in some states), criminal lawyers, courts, physchologists, therapists, investigators, GALs, an entire cottage industry of brokers!
With overdue and demanded, simple and just changes to state statues, families and children can be forever protected from the ravages of the divorce industry by a simple and equal standard.
The lack of a presumptive 50/50 rebuttable standard destroys lives and families, often forever. Children as pawns can be scared for life, arbitrarily lose a parent, or two, for life and are in much greater peril in life. Mothers and fathers lose their children and react badly. Suicide and homicide is not uncommon. Mothers and fathers can be jailed for protecting their children or going bankrupt. LIVES ARE DESTROYED!!!

RESEARCH SAYS: CHILDREN, PARENTS AND SOCIETY WANT A PRESUMPTION OF 50/50 REBUTTABLE STANDARD.
Arizona has become the most progressive state in the union by passing laws that focus on equally shared parenting time and accountability for making false claims in order gain an upper hand in the divorce. Google William V. Fabricius and his research.

MAKE 50/50 THE PRESUMPTIVE REBUTTABLE STANDARD FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN AND THEIR PARENTS
Arizona’s Legislature passed SB-1127 by a margin of 74 – 9 (without the support of the Arizona BAR) that emphasized equal parenting and made litigants accountable for false allegations or intentionally misleading the court. Tennessee and several other states have taken similar steps but Arizona is the most progressive. This year, in these legislative sessions, state statues have to be passed that protect our parental rights, our children’s lives and our families from the ravages of the divorce industry.
END CUSTODY EVALAUTIONS
50/50 is rebuttable based upon findings of fact that demonstrate a preponderance of evidence supporting abuse, neglect, addiction or other serious issue as determined by the court. Evaluating personalities or parenting styles is purely subjective and an unacceptable intrusion of government in our lives. Custody evaluators are financially incentivized to perpetuate conflict and promote injustice to increase their billing hours. Lives shall not be destroyed based upon the greed of an industry. Custody evaluations must end.
MAKE 50/50 THE PRESUMPTIVE REBUTTABLE STANDARD FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF CHILDREN AND PARENTS
Please sign this petition letting your legislators know that you support creating a presumptive 50/50 rebuttable custody standard to protect our children and families from the ravages of the divorce industry.
- state legislators
What is more precious: your 14th amendment, basic human right to parent your children or your 2nd amendment right to bear arms? If you had to lose one, which would it be?
Colorado citizens have to be convicted of a felony to be denied a gun but only victims of abuse to be denied their children, dreams and lives.
“Only lawyers win in the divorce” is the mantra from which Colorado Revised Statues where written. Under the false banner of a “child’s best interest” CRS is intentionally vague without standards for the benefit of the brokers rather than children. The lack of a presumptive 50/50 parenting time/responsibility standard made the divorce industry flourish while children’s lives lay in the ruin.
By creating this standard, our children and parents are protected from an industry that creates, promotes and perpetuates conflict for its financial gain. Lives are ruined, lives are lost and injustices beyond comprehension as children are alienated from their parents.
The presumptive 50/50 standard is rebuttable based on a preponderance of evidence supporting abuse, neglect, addiction or other serious issue as defined by the court. This fact and objective based approach has to replace the hearsay and subjectively corrupt manner of today.
Given us this single standard can reduce the amount of divorce litigation by half and allow families to move forward with the best interest of all in mind. Help protect parental rights as strongly as gun rights.
It is your duty to introduce legislation establishing a presumptive 50/50 rebuttable parenting standard and protect our divorcing families from being exploited by an industry for its own greed.
