    It would be ideal if the legislature and Judiciary expanding the impact of their efforts and focus and worked to address the current crisis in our state's "family" court system.

    Its well past time for our state and family court system to get out of the business of divorce and to address the blatant "kids for cash" and trafficking of children in the family court system... a system which denies parents access to children for no good reason and unless they pay a small army of "court appointed experts."

    All of this is fueled by the dysfunction and inherent corruption in our family courts, and especially the Guardian ad Litem system. A problem which has caused "an explosion of Pro Se litigants" (Sen. Doyle) and has brought the family court to state of complete crisis with hearing times approaching 4-5 months.

    All of this as parents are bankrupted in the process, all of their assets taken from them, and children's college funds are routinely liquidated under the threat of imprisonment in order to funnel their money to a small army of "court appointed experts" who contribute to the operational dysfunction - and all as a matter of very misguided and standard family court practice and policy.

    Our state must do much better for our families and children.
