Chainsaw the Couch

With certain tactics having failed,some groups are now thumping the equal or shared parenting drum. The one that has so miserably failed in Australia. There will be academic discourses, dangerous discourses, silly discourses etc. ad nauseum. I might as well add my voice to the noise before the decibel level becomes excrutiating.

A while back, I read a funny and true saga of a "conflicted" divorce. The two adults (?) involved decided to split everything 50/50- or -a court ordered it. Can't remember. In any case- one sealed off half of the house-moved all clothing etc. I seem to remember it was the husband-but- no matter. Then, he came "home " one day- to find his ex wife sawing the couch in half with a chainsaw. Well- everything got divided 50/50. No-one wrote about how the couch was doing - - -
That is basically my opinion on equal or shared parenting. There's more but- I am sure someone more erudite than I, will say it.

Emailing: BARRY GOLDSTEIN, J.D. Author of SCARED TO LEAVE AFRAID TO STAY

 






BARRY GOLDSTEIN, attorney, teacher, author and advocate for women abused by their partner (and too often the courts) has written a book for women seeking to leave their abusers and for their friends, family, supporters and advocates.  SCARED TO LEAVE AFRAID TO STAY Paths From Family Violence to Safety tells the story of ten women as they left their abusers seeking a better life.  The book shows in these abuse cases how courts handle legal issues such as orders of protection, custody, visitation, support, marital property and criminal prosecutions.  It tells about the resources available for women seeking to leave their abuser.  Click the links to learn more about the book, author or to view frequently asked questions (FAQs).  The book is published by Robert D. Reed Publishers and is available at book stores online and off. 



Notice: This web site is not designed to and should not be taken as giving legal advice. The courts and attorneys know what the law is (even if they don't always follow the law). To the extent the web site speaks of legal issues it seeks to provide up-to-date domestic violence research and information and suggests how this information can and should be applied to legal cases. This is exactly what most courts and lawyers don't have the training or background to do. Barry Goldstein is no longer practicing law as a result of retaliation by the broken custody court system in New York (see link to Legal Ethics Real and Imagined). The information on the web site should be used to provide information to protective mothers, courts, lawyers, journalists, legislators and other professionals to prevent courts from making more mistakes that force children to live with abusers.
