Each year hundreds of parents of small children walk into the Family Court in New Rochelle and file petitions claiming that the other parent, usually the father, has inflicted some kind of harm on their child when in fact it is not true.The children are usually from five to ten years old. The parent who files goes before Judge Nilda Morales Horowitz who has fixed several cases and got caught with no punishment. She gives the parent advise. Gets Child UnProtective Services involved, The County Attorneys Office and Victims Assistance and assumes the defendant is guilty.
Before Due Process proceedings and our US Constitutional principle of innocent until proven guilty Family Court Judge Nilda Morales and New Rochelle resident Judge Kathie Davidson see to it your and my Constitutional rights are violated.
These Judges are not sovereign upholders of the law and our Constitution. They have been so used to derailing and usurping the law and their power with no accountability or watch dog whatsoever they leave children and families decimated while letting the knowingly guilty go free.
There are mother's and father's who truly abuse or mistreat their children. My series of articles to follow will address the innocent parent who is made a target of the revenge, frustration and vindictiveness by the other parent usually during separation or divorce, using the child as a weapon and pawn against the other parent. This is called Parental Alienation and is becoming an epidemic in this country.
Sadly the Family Courts, CPS, County Attorneys Office so called Victims Assistance and The Judges all who care nothing about the children are given immunity from someone filing a lawsuit against them. Everyone knows immunity equals irresponsibility.
In my follow up pieces I'll detail -naming names how the system works, and perpetuates itself. Leaving children with the real abuser, the alienator and child with psychological scars that a lifetime of psychotherapy can't unravel.
The Family Court system needs an overhaul. It's a self serving institution with no accountably of it's actors and players who care nothing about our beloved children .This is our Family Court and it has failed New Rochelle , Westchester County and New York State.
It will take some time to expose this politically driven stronghold with it's deep flaws, acts of coersion , nepotism, outright corruption and the excess waste of our tax dollars and disregard for our fundamental rights of Due Process and the upholding of the law.
