Law Reform

Many Americans are unaware that family courts have become the ultimate battleground for domestic abusers to aggressively fight for custody of children as a way of punishing the protective parent and exerting power and control over her. Shockingly, courts are more likely to award sole or joint custody to an abusive parent up to 70 percent of the time due to deep-rooted gender bias against women who allege abuse. It is imperative, therefore, that we do more to educate judges, lawyers and legislators about the problem, as well as implement new policies to reform our legal system. Join SOAR for Justice in the movement for family court justice. Get involved!
