Wow im touched, the system in America is really screwed up then. I come from Ghana, child abuse isnt that common here, but then it probably isnt recorded as much since it is considered ok for a parent to give his or her child a spanking. Iv been reading about the family court systerm in America and there seems to be two very different sides to the story, on one hand are the fathers who claim the judicial system is unfair towards them. I have heard really terrible stories of ex-parte restraining orders as a tactic in judicial proceedings, false abuse charges, huge and unrealistic child payments and even paternity fraud. Some have even aluded to a feminist conspiracy to hijack the family court system.
And on the other hand are views similar to the article above that states that divorce proceedings are unfair to women and that the courts isnt doing enough to protect women and children.
As an outsider with a particular interest since Ghana is considering adopting similar laws to those that exist in the west, which side is telling the truth. And another thing i find strange is th huge discrepancy in figures quoted by both camps.
Honestly im confused
