Constitutional Law Attorney Stanley Charles Thorne discusses how the Constitution affects children, parents, and divorce and how the present family law system has become frighteningly efficient at stepping into areas that were intended to remain private.
One comment on “The Constitution And Your Parental Rights”
Children’s Rights Council of Illinois
The argument that the solution when dealing with two fit parents is that the court should begin by treating both parents as equal in custody litigation only validates the court’s intervention. A better approach I believe is that issues of custody and access for fit parents should be beyond the scope of the court. These issues must be treated not as a matter of law but as a family crisis requiring a completetely different venue—- such as ADR (alternative dispute resolution).
