The Oral Motion Fraud in Family Court

Filed under: Divorce And Society,Divorce Industry,No Fault Divorce Around The World — Family Innocence @ 10:17 pm

‘A nefarious act plays out in family court all across the country…All states require written pleadings to get a judgment and written motions to get an order….However, in family court, these written applications for legal relief in the form of “orders” produce a paper trail that can be audited by authorities and provide valuable advance notice of requests by the opponent’


I can absolutely agree with this article…in my divorce..her attorney wait until the hearing was ‘over’..the judge would  standup and her attorney would say..’ by the way’..or ‘just one more thing’..and of course the judge would give in as an afterthought…very manipulative..

False Allegations of Domestic Violence

Filed under: Domestic Violence — Family Innocence @ 5:14 pm

 ‘Unfortunately, when it comes to false domestic violence allegations, the statistics are not good. Seven hundred thousand individuals are wrongfully arrested for domestic violence each year. While women can be the victims of false domestic violence allegations, men are more often targeted.’

There is quite an argument between father’s rights and the ‘domestic violence community’ on this issue/DV advocates claim ‘only’ 10-15 %of domestic violence orders are bogus,father’s rights groups say 25-30 %..either number is too much..but as always..the truth is in the middle so..let’s say 20 % are bogus..
