UPDATE ON DECLARATORY JUDGMENT PROGRESS: The status of the declaratory judgment is as follows: We have an attorney reviewing the pleadings and complaint this week, the first week of September 2015. Everyone who donates $20 or more will receive an e-book on declaratory judgments as soon as that is completed and can be released.
We are using all donations for the declaratory judgment, getting it filed, if we need oral arguments, any additional response filings, as well as costs for appealing if necessary. While we are hoping for a summary judgment there is always the possibility that the court will not grant that and we have to appeal.
The donations received so far meet the requirements for the initial filing costs and responding to an initial objection from the attorney general. Oral arguments will bear additional costs on us so additional donations are appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who has donated and for your confidence and patience. This is by far one of the most important fights and one that we feel will finally take down what has been supporting the corrupt and destructive family court system. Each of you has made this possible. Your pain and suffering will no longer go on in silence or in vain.
Any additional donations that exceed declaratory judgment filings will go towards the cost of filing the nonprofit paperwork for “Keeping Families Intact.” An organization established to help families in distress be able to stay together and protect their relationships through awareness and education of family rights.
If you have questions about who this helps and what this does for you, here is the skinny on it:
Where is the first one being filed?
The first declaratory judgment being filed challenges the Texas family code. The general portions of this can be duplicated throughout the rest of the United States. Each state will have to adapt their specific statutes to their complaint. But for the most part this declaratory complaint challenges “best interest” as unconstitutional.
Who does this help?
Since every state uses best interest as their premise for interfering and coming between you and your child, this will be a general theme for all of the states.
What has taken so long to get this declaratory judgment done?
Because this is the first one to be filed and most efforts at the federal levels have failed due to abstention doctrines, it took time to be happy with the argument and to get the argument down from 84 pages to under 25. Anyone who has ever written a paper, argumentative or otherwise, knows that cutting the size of the content down can be a daunting challenge that can take quite a bit of time.
Why aren’t you filing it yet?
We just got the argument where we want it and now have to give the attorney time to review it. Being too hasty could cause this to fail so even though we have set deadlines and intended to meet those making sure that this is done right is more important than meeting those deadlines.
The family code is something that is highly guarded and protected by generations of cultural bias and prejudice, to overcome this it takes an extremely carefully crafted argument. This is what we feel we have developed.
It has actually taken years of reading cases, arguing our own cases, and working with parents and attorneys and watching and participating and being part of court cases and studying in order to be able to come up with the argument that will soon be filed.
