helping protective parents and children endangered by an abusive court system

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit

Your Children Deserve a Safe and Happy Childhood.

You want to give
it to them.

The FCVFC can help you navigate a broken and corrupt family court system, so you can

  •         Defend yourself and your children against the system.
  •         Maintain your credibility and reputation.
  •         Provide your children the safe and happy childhood they deserve.

You’ve Found Yourself Facing a Nightmare of Litigation You Never Anticipated.

¨       You thought you would take steps to change an abusive situation.

You had no idea this would be your time of greatest danger.

¨       You thought when you brought forward your child’s allegation of abuse, your child would be believed.

You had no idea you would be accused of coaching your child.

¨       You brought forward clear evidence and testimony of the child’s abuse.

You had no idea you would be in danger of being charged with “parental alienation.”

¨       You thought your child would be protected.

You had no idea there would be talk of “reunifying” your child with the abuser.

You had no idea that you would be suddenly accused of personality disorders and mental illness.

You had no idea that you would suddenly be in danger of losing your child.

But did you know that in family court litigation, the primary reason children are transferred from the protective parent into the hands of the abusive parent is the allegation of sexual abuse of the child?

Yes, the Family Court System Is Broken.

  • Accusations of “parental alienation” at the mention of abuse.
  • Beliefs that children should be “reunified” with abusers.
  • Judges, attorneys, and guardians ad litem who do not understand abuse and do not want to understand it.
  •  A good-old-boy under-the-table system.
  • Lawyers and “best interest attorneys” who work the system instead of caring about their clients.
  • Corrupt judges who answer to no one.
  • Predetermined outcomes according to who has the money.

Protective parents shouldn’t have to navigate such a system alone.

In the Family Court System,
Who Can You Trust
to Truly Care for Your Children?

The sad truth is, very few. 

In this broken and corrupt system, almost everyone in the system is part of the system.

That’s why you need help from someone who knows the system but works outside of it.

At the Foundation for Child Victims of the Family Courts, Our Top Priority Is Helping Our Clients Protect Their Children.

Like you, we want to protect the children and give them the safe and happy childhood they deserve.

But unlike you, we’ve been helping protective parents navigate the ins and outs of the corrupt and broken family court system for over a dozen years.

The FCVFC Can Help You Protect Your Children from an Abusive Court System.
Here's How:

  1. We will evaluate your case. Whether or not you have your own attorney, we will confidentially
  • Analyze and protect evidence, legal documents, and testimony of your case.
  • Provide a clear definition of your case as to the law, policy, and causes of action.
  • Provide a family dynamic assessment.
  • File criminal charges and protective orders when necessary.
  • Provide support, oversight, consultation, and interventions.

We help you clarify and define the narrative.

2. We will create an action plan for court. No matter where you live in the United States, we will

  • Evaluate any current legal strategy.
  • Assist in the preparation of legal testimony.
  • Prepare witness affidavits and reports to the correct authorities.
  • Provide expert witness testimony that will be most beneficial for your case.
  • Evaluate the experts already on the case.

We help you navigate the process and protect yourself and your children through it.

3. We will walk with you through the court process. Because we have no need to maintain business relationships in any particular family court and are beholden to no judge, we will

  • Assess the roles and functioning of various court actors.
  • Call for the removal of experts that speak contrary to facts.
  • Identify alleged crimes committed by dependency, juvenile, and family court judges, lawyers, experts, and evaluators.
  • Confront issues of income disparity and unequal access to the courts.
  • Hold perpetrators of crimes accountable.
  • Confront through litigation.

We fearlessly expose and litigate against corrupt members of the family court system.
