I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

Another abuse situation when a single mom lets boyfriend go too far with children

Law Offices of Jeffrey Leving: Father Awarded Possession of Abused Daughter

Last update: 10:54 p.m. EST Dec. 19, 2008
CHICAGO, Dec 19, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- After the mother's live-in boyfriend's alleged sexual abuse of her ten year old daughter, Cook County Circuit Court Judge John Thomas Carr awarded possession of the girl and her twelve year old brother to the father of the children today.
The father's attorneys, Jeffery M. Leving and Art Kallow, successfully obtained an Order removing the children from the mother, after a Chicago man, Columbo Galindo, age 29, was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of the daughter.
"The Respondent (mother) told me that her boyfriend, Columbo Galindo, had been arrested for attempting to rape our 10 year old daughter," said the father, according to court documents. "I spoke with Respondent who told me that she still loved Mr. Galindo and that he and his family would always be part of my children's lives..." A petition to change custody is pending and a hearing on the Order of Protection has been scheduled for Monday, Dec. 22, 2008 at 12:00 noon in courtroom 1603A of the Daley Center in Chicago.
"In this sensitive case, we had to move swiftly for the safety and well-being of the children involved," said Mr. Leving. "Furthermore, this case is a possible example of why statistics frighteningly demonstrate that father absence increases a child's vulnerability to abuse," said Leving.
You can hear Leving every Sunday at 2:00pm (CST) on Soul 106.3 FM.
