The Judge Took My Son Away!

A father’s ordeal to reclaim his child reveals a family court system that places kids back in the hands of alleged abusers.

If a parent claims in court that their spouse or partner has been abusive, their odds of losing custody skyrocket. The court system is systematically trafficking children who are abused by a parent away from their safe parent.

According to interviews with attorneys, former judges, past litigants and others who have worked in or analyzed family courts across California, judges disproportionately award custody to parents accused of abuse, due to a variety of factors—particularly institutional sexism that dismisses the concerns of female litigants and conflicting financial interests of attorneys and judges.
