Abstract:

"Our Broken Family Court System is a collection of transcripts from the 2012 conference conducted by the Cummings Foundation, led by Dr. Nicholas Cummings. The conference tackles the problems within a disjointed and haphazard family court system, addressing a broken organization that often victimizes the innocent parties unfortunate enough to be involved. Anchored by the noteworthy film, No Way Out But One, produced by the prize-winning documentary director Garland Waller, and supported by a group of knowledgeable judges, lawyers, psychologists, and other authorities, this book addresses the inherent limitations and biases that are present in the current family court structure. Frustrated by the underhanded opposition of the entrenched interests, the speakers of this conference address the lack of understanding in family court cases, especially the ones involving childhood development, physical and mental abuse, as well as the outdated assumptions as to 'what is best for the child.' The speakers in this book identify weaknesses and contradictions in the current system and offer viable solutions that reflect the most recent understanding of family dynamics and childhood psychology. Our Broken Family Court System is a comprehensive analysis of a jumbled and confusing legal process that rarely takes into account the needs of the human psyche"--Page 4 of cover.
