IN CUSTODY by Lundy Bancroft
Resources on Family Court Corruption & Reform
Below are the names of a number of organization, linked to their websites, that strive to expose family court corruption, work for family reform, or both.
We don’t list resources here for people who need help with their own cases. Assessing the strengths and weaknesses of such resources is a very complicated process that we can’t take on at this time, especially given the huge amounts of money that a protective parent is typically risking when they hire someone to help with their case.
