Nonviolent Parent Spent Year Reuniting Family

(WOMENSENEWS)-- When Nancy Vivioda, 26, set off for a meeting with Detroit's Department of Human Resources in 2004 she brought all five of her children and a false expectation.

The fast food worker was working nights and paying her bills. She thought she was going in to discuss some discrepancies with her current food stamp case. But the appointment turned out to be about her husband of four years.

At the start of the meeting the children were escorted into the department's playroom by a social worker, a common practice in child welfare.

New laws will see babies taken from addicted or abused mothers who refuse to seek help

Note: This might be believable if it didn't come from a government who has almost 18 000 children in captivity at this time. They steal children on a whim and lie and move onto the next family, patting each other on the back. The new legislation will also extend to pregnant woman who suffer domestic violence. To punish VICTIMS of the horrific crime of domestic violence is sick and twisted.

Why it's so sick and twisted is that if you leave a violent abuser, the family court just hands your child over to shared custody with the violent abuser.

At least if you stay, you can usually take the

False Abuse Reports Trouble Child Welfare Advocates

Child protection experts say false, malicious reports of abuse are not uncommon. Efforts to address the problem face complex challenges.

In some neighborhoods in this city, it’s not uncommon for people to file an allegation of child abuse or neglect to settle a grudge.

In a meeting with City Limits, lawyers and social workers from The Bronx Defenders, which represents parents with child welfare cases in the Bronx, described a string of such cases: a landlord who repeatedly called in child neglect complaints against a tenant whose housing support check wasn’t coming through; a neighbor who

Presumption of Guilt – NSW Senate Committee calls for on-the-spot AVO’s

POLICE must be given the power to arrest suspects on the spot to issue them with apprehended domestic violence orders, according to a multi-party report.

A NSW upper house committee has called for the Crimes Act to be toughened to better protect victims of domestic abuse. The committee said the law should allow police to arrest and detain aggressors immediately. It should also allow third parties to apply for orders on behalf of someone who is physically or mentally impaired.

Another one of the 84 recommendations urges the government to allow police ranked sergeants or above to issue

Women Commit More Domestic Violence

on Sun, 04/08/2012 - 12:03

A recent report by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) Northern region branch says women commit more domestic violence. The report goes on to say that many of these cases to local authorities (chieftaincy institution) rather than the appropriate legal bodies.

The cases include forced early marriages, child molestation and character assassination by women.

This raises interesting questions partly because it is an area many do not study. We usually would study domestic violence as committed by men and this report has highlighted what otherwise was only theoretical.
