According to the US census report, there are around 3 million women in the country who do not have eligibility to be the primary custodian of their child. These women have to bear the brunt of the society, apart from paying for the child support, having a minimal relation with their children and having their visitation denied. A large number of these mothers are have the perfect attitude and mental stability to take care of their children in the best possible way.
In the early twentieth century, it was mandatory to award mothers with the sole custody of the child. But with the changing times, this rule has changed. Now more fathers are ready to take up the responsibility of parenting. According to a research conducted by California’s National Organization for Women on non-custodial mothers, 69 percent cases have reported situations of physical abuse during their child custody trials. Out of these, 86 percent fit mothers still believe that their children are in the danger of further abuse by the father.
Idelle Clarke was one of those unlucky women who have been deprived by the state’s family court system to visit her daughter. It has been around 2 years that Clarke has met her 15 year old daughter, who resides just 10 minutes away in her Southern California neighborhood. She has been banned from filing any petitions in the state unless they are above $25,000. In 1993, when Clarke accused her ex-husband with charges of molesting her daughter, family courts awarded the primary custody of the daughter to the mother in 1996. Two years later, the judgement was modified with the superior court granting temporary custody to the father.
According to Alan Rosenfield, a Denver based attorney who has helped several women in regaining their child’s custody, family courts, judges, psychologists and lawyers have a premonition that mothers always lie when they accuse for sexual abuse or molestation.
