Our family court system is completely flawed in this country, something needs to change, I dealt with them for years explaining to them the physical and mental abuse my son endured from his father and every time I was met by a judge who only listened to a lawyer instead of the actual parents, I did not have the money to pay for a lawyer so he didn’t listen to me. My greatest fear was that one day I would receive a call that he fatally hurt our son and last Wednesday that fear almost came to light, my son’s dad choked him twice and made him get in a car with him without any shoes on telling my son he was taking him up the mountain to fight him, while in the car he punched my son, started spitting, hitting the steering wheel, and screaming “you’re mine and only mine” my son said he immediately started to feel that he was not going to come back down from the mountain so to save his own life he jumped out of the moving car and ran to safety. While my son and I were talking to the advocate the police sent to the hospital she told him he’s extremely lucky since she has dealt with women who have done that and not made it after jumping out (it should never come to someone needing to do that) I explained to her past issues that have happened with his dad and she knew the what judge we dealt with without me telling her the name, right then I knew I needed to do something so this doesn’t happen to another child. In abuse situations there needs to be more investigation by the authorities and officials instead of an investigator who is personally paid by the abuser, cps workers need to truly investigate situations instead of going for one visit and giving up. The states should have their own private investigators who follow the abuser, the most important thing is for judges to listen and take accusations seriously regardless of what kind of abuse it is, too many children have died because of the flawed system, my son’s dad has been charged with a few felonies but it shouldn’t have come to this for law enforcement to finally do something, I am fortunate to not be planning a funeral right now and I want to ensure no parent ever has to feel that way again
