Mothers Fighting Back Group

Mothers Fighting Back Group

This group is for mother’s who have lost custody of their children in the biased family court system we face today.
If you are not ready to stand up and fight for equal rights, treatment, justice and reform, then this group is not for you. Mothers, it is time for change. There are several laws and sly strategies that have made it easy for judges to strip fit mothers of their rights to their children. The one Id like to address in this group is Third Party Intervention. It is a law that allows one party to obtain legal custody during divorce proceedings. The way it works is, any Joe Scheme can be given permission by a judge to intervene into a divorce and ask for visitation of the children involved, so long as they cite that it is the best interest of the children. More often than not, the intervening parties are of some relationship to the husband. More often than not, that husband has been abusive and too often, the mother has no choice but to fight TWO attorneys. Imagine that. Well, unfortunately I don’t have to. Needless to say with my ex husband’s extra leverage in court, he was able to gain and keep physical custody of our daughter. Although the United States Supreme Court deemed this sort of law essentially ridiculous and a violation of the 14th Amendment, most states like in my case, Virginia, do not honor this declaration.
We mothers who have done nothing but love, nurture and protect our children need to demand that state courts reject intervention from third parties, who only seek to either aid the father in obtaining a legal license to control and punish the mother or gain custody of the child themselves.

The Fourteenth Amendment (Amendment XIV) to the United States Constitution is one of the amendments that was enacted after the Civil War as part of the Reconstruction Amendments, along with the Thirteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. It was adopted on July 9, 1868.
The amendment provides a broad definition of citizenship, overruling Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857) which had excluded slaves, and their descendants, from possessing Constitutional rights and was used in the mid-20th century to dismantle racial segregation in the United States, as in Brown v. Board of Education (1954). Its Due Process Clause has been used to apply most of the Bill of Rights to the states. This clause has also been used to recognize: (1) substantive due process rights, such as parental and marriage rights; and (2) procedural due process rights requiring that certain steps, such as a hearing, be followed before a person's "life, liberty, or property" can be taken away. The amendment's Equal Protection Clause requires states to provide equal protection under the law to all people within their jurisdictions. The amendment also includes a number of clauses dealing with the Confederate states and their officials.

We are forming this group to seek women who have been abused by partners and then further abused by the court system. Our goal is to work to change laws, inform the public and self help through peer groups. Do you feel that things are not quit right in the handling of your case? Join in. If you are male, and have experienced this treatment, you may also join.
