We’ve heard (and experienced) so much wrong with the family court system. Judges don’t get it, the process is another way to abuse a partner, the courts and other professionals are making money hand over fist because of all the extra counsellors and shrinks they are requiring to determine custody…the list goes on and on. So what being done about it? What should family courts look like and who’s going to get them that way?
