Feminist ‘Greater Good’ Legislation Gave Rise to the Divorce and Domestic Violence Industry

Feminist-backed ‘greater good’ legislation has produced unjust ‘excuses’ for courts to deprive fathers and other men of their constitutional rights and protections while privileging and benefiting women. This legislation has produced an enormous court order-based industry – the divorce and domestic violence industry (DDVI) – that funds itself through extorting fit fathers and taxpayers. It’s a parasitic cadre of benefactors.

‘Greater good’ legislation effectively denies the inalienable rights – our constitutional rights – for which the U.S. was formed to secure for each of us. Feminists and women’s rights organization have propagandized the need for ‘greater good’ legal excuses under commendable-sounding reasons. They fraudulently suppress the tyrannical denial of rights of fathers and men that it produces. These ‘excuses’ are unconstitutional since securing our individual rights is the ‘greater good’ – the only one – and because their operation negates constitutional protections and maxims of law by which those rights are protected.

Two ‘greater good’ excuses are the safety of women’s ‘abuse excuse’ and the ‘best interest of the child excuse’. The unconstitutional court processes engendered by these excuses grant to women an enormous incentive to file for divorce or paternity to both eliminate fit fathers while extorting money from them for years.

These ‘excuses’ privilege a woman by allowing her – through court orders – to:

* falsely accuse and restrain a father from his house and children at her whim

* get custody of his children despite the father being a fit and loving parent

* receive at least half and, generally, much more of the marital assets, and

* receive what is euphemistically called ‘child support’ payments from the father every week for up to 23 years for however she wishes to spend them.

A mammoth state-participating cadre of benefactors makes up the DDVI, each seeking their benefits and fees that unjust court-orders so easily supply them. They close their eyes to the clear denial of a fit father’s parental rights, his enslavement under extortion that state-kidnapping of his children brings, mother’s alienation of his children and the defaming of him by protecting woman’s ability to falsely accuse him. And who are these benefactors and special interest groups of the DDVI?

Here are just a few:

-Mothers who don’t equally share or alternate full custody with fit fathers but extort the euphemistic child support payments and alimony from them and alienate his children. They commit true child abuse. This is where it all starts.

-Family Court Judges who daily ignore constitutional protections and deny fit fathers their children; then conspire with the Revenue Departments to support themselves illegally by ordering ever larger child support amounts; amass large amounts of political power by rewarding their buddies with GAL appointments, and then get jobs after they retire with GAL provider firms. They are the lynchpin upon which this tyranny depends.

-Lawyers who perpetuate bad divorce laws for the gravy train fees they get. They push for antagonism between father and mother for more fees.

-GALs and their provider umbrella firms, who now make $250/ hr by court appointment with full immunity for writing up ‘hearsay’ reports that always find problems with fathers.

-Parent Coordinators, Family service, and Probation officers who keep their jobs by perpetuating the system by enforcing the anti-father feminist jurisprudence.

-Psychologists who serve as GALs and feed off psychological damage a father and his children suffer under the present divorce system – without advocating change.

-Women’s (changed now to ‘victims’) advocates who all judges know to be women’s advocates and advise women how to plead their case; who monitor judges’ behavior and any anti-women (pro-father) decisions to expose an anti-women judge.

-Mental health evaluation clinics where men in divorce are deemed angry about being tyrannized – and then punished for it!

-Visitation centers for men to see their children for $50+ per hour when they have never committed any act that a reasonable person would consider ‘actionable’ abuse if any at all.

-Prisons who profit by increasing population of father and men due to unjust restraining order laws and child support laws both of which are implemented without constitutional due process.

The VAWA (the Violence Against Women Act) AntiFather Cadre consist in part of:

-Batterers groups instituted only for men -and paid by men to attend -under court order, -none for women who have repeatedly shown to be equally violent or abusive as men.

-Battered women shelters obviously only for women who advise women how to get an ‘effective’ divorce with trumped up abuse allegations

-Parent Education Program and Anger Management Providers who have a mandatory and monopolistic business by court order – which fathers must attend for sure, but not mothers.

-Social service agencies like Department of Social Services that tells mothers that if they don’t get a restraining order against fathers, then DSS will take over custody of children!

-Abuse training, helping, and awareness organizations that train police and counsel judges how all men are in denial if they don’t admit their abusive, and who write rules and legislative laws on domestic violence that are directed against men.

-State prosecuting agencies that receive extra funds for their domestic violence program and follow the present paradigm that the problem is always the man’s propagandized ‘natural’ abusiveness.

-State and Federal Revenue/Child Support enforcement Agencies who receive federal money in proportion to the amount of child support that is ordered by Courts which courts in turn get paid by state revenues – a clearly unconstitutional relationship.

-Child support collectors who make mega-bucks pursuing and persecuting mainly fathers. Anyone can be a bounty hunter.

-Colleges & Universities like Wellesley College in Wellesley, MA which create pseudo-scientific psychological analyses and clearly fraudulent court evaluation studies on how women are abused by the Court system in direct contradiction to the fact that every day in court is “mother’s day”

-Police who increase their budgets and keep their jobs by persecuting mostly fathers/families by executing arrest warrants and the like, including by the recent federal “law enforcement” sweep, not for terrorists, but for persecuted fathers

The DDVI depends on extorting fit fathers and taxpayers for their daily bread. Their political power allows them to fraudulently propagandize their ‘phony need’ while hiding the injustice. They keep the tyranny against fathers in place.

Restrictions of Domestic Violence Protective Orders

Domestic violence is an issue that plagues families throughout the country. It is not exclusive to people who are married or in relationships. If can affect all members of a family, including children. In Florida, domestic violence is considered any assault or battery that results in injury to a family member or another person living in the household.

The Sunshine State has several laws in place designed to shield and protect people from domestic violence. Although it cannot be stopped entirely, the goal is to decrease the number of families and people who are victim to the abuse. One possible way is through a domestic violence protective order.

Protective orders are designed to limit the interaction one person has with another, whether that is physical contact or any sort of interaction. The orders are supposed to keep people safe from another, but domestic violence protective orders can be complicated.

A person can file for a protective order if he or she has been the victim of domestic violence or if there is the fear he or she might become a victim. For instance, if a spouse says he or she will harm the other person or that person’s family, a protective order could be issued.

To obtain a protective order, a person first must petition to the court requesting the order be instated. The court will use several factors to determine whether the petitioner has reasonable cause to believe he or she is in danger, including the history between the two parties.

A court is likely to grant a protective order if there has been physical abuse, threats of abuse, threats of kidnapping or harming children, abuse or killing of a family pet or use of a weapon. Whether the respondent – the person the order is filed against -has stopped the other spouse from calling law enforcement also could be used as proof.

The domestic violence laws only apply if the respondent is the petitioner’s spouse, former spouse, related by blood or marriage, living with the petitioner now or has in the past lived as a family. The law also would apply if the person shares a child or children with the petitioner, whether or not they have been married or lived together.

In Florida, violating a protective order is a first-degree misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fee. A person can violate it in several different ways, including:

• Refusing to vacate the home, apartment or dwelling shared by both parties
• Being within 500 feet of the petitioner’s home, school, job, or any location specified as a place frequented by the petitioner, or a family member
• Committing an act of domestic violence against the petitioner
• Threatening by words or actions to harm the petitioner
• Intentionally communicating with the petitioner

Domestic Violence, Gender Discrimination

Personal Safety is a fundamental right of life – the right to live without fear of any harm or danger to you and your family, both immediate and extended. No one has the right to harm, abuse or threaten anyone else and a victim has the right to make a formal complaint and seek action against the offender.

“Domestic violence is any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (be it physical or emotional) between adults who are or have been in a relationship together, or between family members, regardless of gender or sexuality. The types of behavior frequently encountered in domestic violence are physical attacks, sexual attacks, psychological abuse, and the destruction of property or pets”.

Domestic Violence and abuse “consists of acts committed in the context of an adult intimate relationship. Domestic violence is purposeful and instrumental behavior directed at achieving compliance from, or control over the abused party”.

It is one of the most under-reported crimes worldwide and occurs across all strata of society. Although statistics and analytical figures point that domestic abuse consists mainly of violence by men against women, it is not restricted to these circumstances. In some cases men too are abused by their partners. However, it is shocking that globally domestic violence accounts for 16% of all violent crimes and 77% of victims are women. It is equally shocking to read that most victims have suffered repeated abuse and continue enduring physical violence for several years before they make a formal complaint. Unfortunately, in most cases, children are at the receiving end of abuse within homes. It is also equally relevant here to note that most women do not report violence or abuse for fear of harassment to their children.

Domestic violence in homes occurs if a spouse is being subjected to abuse by current or former spouse, parent or child. Even if a person is harassed, threatened, stalked, beaten, freedom of movement restrained, or property destroyed; then all these too constitute domestic violence. A victim of domestic violence does not have to be in a marital or other relationship.

Attitudes that are reflected by society contribute greatly to domestic violence. Long held notions that a wife is the “property of a husband and he can do what he likes to keep her in check” have been the cause for delayed action in cases involving domestic violence. Adding to this already aggravating situation is the view that ‘domestic violence’ does not strictly come under the purview of ‘police investigation’. Archaic laws like “the rule of thumb” existed till very recent times.

Till the 1970s, most cases involving domestic violence were settled by mediation by third parties without achieving any desired results. Police response to domestic violence has a pathetic record globally.

Family Law guidelines view such violations seriously and advise victims on the action they need to take and also on what will happen once their application is received. It has also enforced the ‘right of protection to women irrespective of status’ as a constitutional fundamental right.

Several legal cases in the US and Europe have highlighted the plight of victims of domestic violence as well as landmark judgements that have been pronounced. Today, many police agencies adopt mandatory arrest policies enforcing the view that society should view domestic violence as a criminal offence. Only strict action and stringent punishment can provide safety and solace to victims of domestic violence.

In India’s context, it is relevant to sit up and take notice of the increasing number of incidents that are classified as “honour killing” in recent times. Thanks to media exposure, more numbers of incidents are highlighted and the world at large is witness to some gruesome crimes, which are horrifying to say the least. How could family, kith & kin kill another member of the family brutally just to avenge ‘honour’ and ‘status’? What is this mindset? Even the most expert of psychologists may have to delve deep into their knowledge and expertise to come up with plausible explanations and reasoning. For the record, murders are committed of girls who elope with boyfriends; or marry a man of their choice, outside of their own community or caste, against the parents’ wishes; or decide to have a harmless cup of coffee or an ice cream with a classmate of the opposite gender.

Some of these violent crimes are aided and abetted by so-called communal and religious bodies, obviously with backing from some political party that they pledge allegiance to. One such agency took upon itself to “marry off” any two people of the opposite sex who were seen out in the open on Valentine’s Day. Utterly shameless and perverted thinking of the worst kind. Another local administrative body suggests that girls ‘must be’ married off at the age of 15 and boys at the age of 18 to prevent them going ‘astray’ and indulging in shameful activity. A minister went on national television to say that ‘governance cannot trample and set laws that oppose traditional beliefs and mindsets’. What a myopic and absolutely shameful viewpoint!!! Such negative trends will have far reaching consequences on a society’s growth and development. Elsewhere, governments are providing incentives to families to educate girl children because it is not believed without reason, that if you “educate and liberate a woman with knowledge and confidence, you are educating and liberating a family”. Females of any species have that innate ability to strive and overcome obstacles especially when it comes to protecting and providing for the wellbeing of their families. Perhaps nature’s design is not without purpose because every family, even in the poorest of villages across India, that has a literate girl child has seen innumerable benefits being absorbed into their lives in many ways.

Another obvious example of the success of women’s liberation is the micro financing schemes introduced in Third World economies which is ample proof of what women can achieve for themselves, and in turn their families, if they are given the right opportunities and assistance. This success has been a lifeline for millions of families around the globe transforming communities and towns into hives of action and sustenance fuelled by women, cutting across language, regional, religious and communal barriers.

There are huge implications from these positive results and vast lessons for the rest of the world to learn. Hopefully, now that the transformation has arrived, it will evolve to engulf the whole world.

And we may as yet live to see gender biases and discrimination a thing of the past. Long live women power!!

Getting Knowledge on State Domestic Violence Laws

Laws for domestic violence can be very restrictive or lenient in the state you reside, so a consultation with a family law attorney may be a wise choice. A majority of states have strict laws prohibiting such acts and have laws in place to protect women of domestic violence. The former couples involved in a domestic violence situation may be married, recently divorced, straight, gay, lesbian, living together, going out or not together anymore. Additional involvements may also exist and need to be talked over with a family law lawyer or law enforcement official.

Domestic violence may include verbal abuse, significant other from contacting family, friends, not sharing money, preventing a spouse from getting a job, making a spouse get fired from their job, physical abuse, threatening remarks, sexual assault, following, intimidation, etc. Any questions about what is considered domestic violence should be directed to an attorney or law enforcement official.

There are several hotlines and safe havens that exist for victims of domestic violence, so knowing this is available is very important. The National Domestic Violence National Phone line is among the resources victims should be privy to. The number is located in your local yellow pages. Browsing online is a great way to learn more about domestic abuse resources. Contact an experienced family law lawyer or law enforcement official for extensive information and resources.

An emergency protective order (EPO) may be obtained that according to local law strictly limits the accused from contacting or within a certain amount of feet near the victim. It may also grant custody of the kids (if applicable) to the victim or someone with whom they will be in a protective environment. When in immediate danger, victims should contact 911 instantly and tell the police officers what occurred once they arrive. The policeman may call an on-call court officer to give the EPO on the spot.

To be granted an EPO, the person in danger or his or her kids have to be in immediate and current life threatening situation of extreme violence. The order is valid for five court days or seven calendar days, whichever is less. Further information about an EPO can be obtained by talking to a family law laeyer or law enforcement officer.

To be approved for a temporary restraining order (TRO), the victim must file an application with the nearest family law court. If given, the TRO will be effective once the aggressor is served with papers. To find out more about TROs, victims should, once again, speak with an family law lawyer or a police officer or official deputy.

People affected by domestic violence can be of any gender, race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, age, etc. Knowing one’s resources and phoning the authorities if in immediate danger is important.

Does Mandated Domestic Violence Police Arrest Help or Hurt Domestic Abuse Families?

Over a year ago a newspaper reporter asked me this very question and I was on the fence. I thought I understood the battered women’s perspective and appreciated the police correction’s side. I truly can see this from both points of view, but today if I had to vote, I’d vote against mandated arrest.

Mandated Arrest for Domestic Violence

Mandated arrest is a law that requires law enforcement to make an arrest when specific conditions exist, which are indicative of the presence of domestic violence. The particulars differ from state to state for the states that have adopted mandated arrest for domestic abuse.

Mandated Domestic Violence Arrest and Police Corrections

The fundamental belief is that once domestic abuse leaks out to law enforcement, the victim can be manipulated or coerced into dropping charges. She is likely to be overpowered by the abuser to yield to his wishes. And in many cases this is exactly what happens. It happened to me 18 years ago.

In my particular case, mandated arrest could have helped my children and me. This is clear to me now. However, this is not always the case for domestic violence families.

Mandated Arrest and Battered Women

Individuals in the domestic abuse shelter communities are strongly opposed to mandated arrest because it takes the ultimate decision of proceeding with charges out of the victim’s hands. Essentially this gives her no say at a time when her vision embraces more of the whole family circumstance than that of anyone else.

In many respects it robs her of her basic human rights to make her own decisions regarding her welfare. It declares her momentarily incompetent to make this family abuse milestone decision. The reason I was on the fence over this debate is because I knew this “state of incompetence.” It is very real in cases of true unidirectional intimate partner violence.

However, most cases of domestic abuse are not so clear-cut. And when that is the situation, basic rights are infringed upon. Many people liken it to laws prohibiting abortion in that the woman is denied “her choice,” in a situation regarding her body… and her family. Mandated arrest for domestic abuse is seen as further victimizing the survivor… dis-empowering her, even more.

The Downside of Mandated Arrest

I have seen far too many cases when mandated arrest brought irreparable destruction to families that needed psychological care over corrections. One such case resulted in the perpetrator’s suicide and another in exacerbated psychopathology with severe implications for innocent minor children.

If you are “considering” going to the police, it will be in your interest to understand the specific implications of doing so. Know the laws in your state and the consequences of these statutes.

The keyword-operative word-here is “considering.” This word must be distinguished from a reflex urgent 911 call. You will want to call for immediate police help if you are in imminent danger. On the other hand, if you are reflecting on a domestic abuse altercation weeks on end after the fact, consider with full consideration, competency and care.
