If you’ve ever experienced family court, you know how wrenching it can be. In difficult cases it’s hard to find a lawyer to tackle the issues, and if you’re broke, good luck getting legal advice. In the brotherhood/sisterhood of lawyers, one particular woman stands out – REALLY stands out. Elizabeth Kates has practice law for 34 years with impressive qualifications like a J.D. and LLM degrees from University of Florida, plus psychology training. She has practiced in the areas of finance, taxation and gender issues affecting women in the IRS and other federal laws. But she is so much more.
Liz founded lizlibrary.org to focus on women’s issues and history, which is probably the most comprehensive site about divorce, custody, news, and so much more. She believes that there is an abrogation of the rule of law in family law that has led to more and more problems for women in divorce and child custody, even as the changes in the laws in other areas have purported to equalize women's rights.
And to top it off, Liz is outspoken and controversial even among her peers. One lawyer wrote on his website that people should “stay away” from her as an attorney. She can be just as fierce in her opinions as she can be supportive of the issues she supports.
A ENTERPRISE CONSPIRACY OR bathtub conspiracy is a conspiracy between, two subsidiaries, parts, or any other division of the same enterprise or firm. It is a conspiracy between related companies. Under a bathtub conspiracy, a parent corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiary were considered two separate parties capable of conspiring.
TODAY, in family court many law abiding citizens are victims of enterprise and bathtub conspiracy. HOW? THE PARTIES WITH THE MOST MONEY WIN ALWAYS. Tune in as you receive knowledge from Heaven "Manna" regarding Family Court violations.
The person with the most money has legal rights and the opposing loses all his or her rights, mind and soul.

The complications from domestic violence are far and wide, and we’ve talked with experts on physical assault, the children who witness violence, and even professionals who work with the offenders. Now it’s time we talk with someone who has lived the nightmare.
Maralee McLean is a mother who faced the family justice courts to battle for the safety and custody of her children. The trauma, ignorance and failure of the family court and justice system led her to write, “Prosecuted But Not Silenced,” a book that has become a reference for not only judges and lawyers, but for other mothers fighting for their children. Maralee will be with us Saturday to talk not only about her personal struggles, but about the situation rampant in our family court system where the officials and decision makers are placing children in danger.
You’ve heard it - “My wife is crazy, but the courts are so prejudiced against men, she got full custody.” “He was abusing me in front of the children, but the judge didn’t even pay attention to me- he got full custody.” “We have shared custody – how can I ever get him/her to be reasonable when it comes to the decisions about the kids?”
Oh, the horror stories we hear. It seems like men’s groups and women’s groups are becoming more active about the sad state our family courts are in. Anyone who’s been in front of a judge knows the fear, the devastation and the lifelong impact of their decisions regarding divorce and child custody. It seems like everyone is let asking, “What was that judge thinking?”
Now is your chance to find out. Join us Saturday to hear A Colorado family court judge explain how judges think, assess, and make decisions, and what laws they have to consider when making those decisions.

On May 22nd Lebanon County Judge Samuel Kline will be holding a custody hearing behind closed doors excluding the mother as a party in this custody hearing. The mother will not be permitted to present any of her testimony and proof to the judge. Time and time again this borderline criminal action is inflicted on parties of custody disagreements that end of in the court system. Judges often never permit one side of the dual arguments so they can make rulings based on one sided evidence often provided from doctors and or evaluators of the courts choice. This judge has also threatened to jail the mother just for asking to be heard. How ludicrous! It is a no win situation in this case the mother. Please join our coalition and give judge Kline a call at 717-228-4440. You can fax your concerns also to 717-228-4457. The District Attorney David Arnold can be reported to at 717-228-4457 an emailed firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sample of concern you may cut and paste:
Dear Judge Samuel Kline: I am writing after seeing an update by PA Coalition for Family and Parents Rights. I am concerned because I have learned that you intend to conduct the court hearing for Kristy Shirk in chambers. I am also concerned because I have heard that she has been threatened with jail simply for asking to be heard in your court.
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?
