    Its curious that the article does not make any mention or reference to the devastating impact the implosion of Wall Street has had on families and children in our state's horribly broken and dysfunctional "family" court system. One of the few areas of law where attorneys and the courts have not come to grips with the reality that all of the money that was once taken from parents to fuel the operational dysfunction and inherent corruption is now gone. This is why average Guardian ad Litem billings have soared as private practice family law attorneys have become GALs to shore up the failing private practice cash flows and for the guaranteed payments. This is also the primary reason why so many parents and families are being bankrupted, losing their homes, losing their jobs and losing their ability to provide for their children - as no one can afford this anymore. Our state must do far better for its children and families and hopefully state's task Force on Child Custody cases will properly examine and address this horrific problem that is causing families to suffer needlessly as the best interests of children are completely ignored.
