As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, The Foundation for Child Victims of the Family Courts accepts tax-deductible donations. We ask our clients, former clients, and others who care about children to remember the Protective Parents who are currently stranded, bereft of choices, or facing unconscionable choices. In court custody litigation, Protective Parents need evaluators who think of their best interest, who care about them and their children, rather than the “network” that so often faces them in court. For those who choose to donate to FCVFC for the sake of other Protective Parents and their children, we offer the following statement.
