Family court needs to change

In child custody cases, judges should speak with each parent. When a judge speaks only with the child, does the judge truly have insight into whether the child is being brainwashed?

Each case in family court differs and each needs to be reviewed more closely for the sake of the children. Judges should require parents to bring proof to back up the statements they make in court.

Too many children are falling into the hands of the wrong parent. Then the courts question why some parents take their children and run.

My prayer is that the system changes for the sake of all children.
