Petition Tag - court system
July 17, 2006
Illinois Family Courts have established an alarming pattern of taking children away from stay-at-home mothers and awarding custody to fathers, who in many cases have a history of abuse and violence.
More than 250 profiles of cases are documented. The Family Court system has forgotten about the children and focused on money.
Local children are coming forward to expose the court-ordered damage these innocent victims endure.

This petition is to show support to D. Susan Whitman in the JUSTIFIED return of her horses by the court system. And we believe the remaining charges against her should be thrown out.
We feel all accusations were unfounded and that the seizure of Ms. Whitman's horses never should have occured in the first place.
My Name is Edward Goldstone. I am just one of many fathers who has had to say goodbye to their child. The last time I saw my son was July 9, 2000. This is due in large part to a court system that has large biases in custudy cases that give more rights to mothers as a parent. More often than not, the courts note only the father's income, rather than their ability to love and care for their child.
On December 22,1999, at the Abbotsford Courthouse, I was given legal visitation rights to see my son, and was required to pay a monthy child maintenance. Since then, in breach of the law, his mother has taken him and disappeared, denying me the right to see my boy, Austin. With the aid of private investigator, I have searched for my son's mother and grandmother with no success. I continue to pay monthly maintenance. Family Maintenance Program (which I volunteered to pay her through) knows where they are but doesn't have authorization to tell me.
Although she is deliberately breaking the law, the authorities can do nothing to stop her. This is due to the omission of a peace officer clause. Without this clause the police can't help me, essentially the court order means nothing. I am trying to get Dads' voices heard. Both parents should be given joint custody (providing the child is not in any danger) and a peace officer clause be included, to make the order inforceable.
I would like your help to put pressure on the Canadain Government to change these out-dated laws. You could help greatly by signing this petition. Its time for dads to have equal rights as parents!
John Maloney was wrongfully convicted of killing his wife in 1999. There is sufficient evidence that there was absolutely no crime committed at all, by anyone, yet John Maloney sits in prison for no reason at all. This petition will be used for two purposes: to gain public support over the Internet and elsewhere and hopefully have a powerful affect on the court system to get John Maloney a new trial. John Maloney and everyone else that believes in him, wants his name cleared of this mockery of justice. Please read the facts at http://johnmaloney.org and sign this petition to show your support. And always remember "An INJUSTICE anywhere, is a threat to JUSTICE everywhere!" We hope to put a stop to injustice in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
