Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 2, 2006
A law enforcement officer for twenty-three years, Catherine MacWillie, Chief Executive Officer, of Custody Calculations, dealt daily with the issues pertaining to divorce and the family law court system. One of the more frightening results of the family law courts she came to witness was the ability of violent felons and convicted registered sexual offenders to receive unmonitored visitation, even obtain full custody of their children. Catherine identified the source of this loophole along with other revisions that should be made to the divorce process during the development of her company, Custody Calculations.
Catherine stated that it is her hope that the courts will implement the patented technology used in her new automated internet web site service to help the court recognize and rectify dangerous custody decisions that allow sexual predators to obtain custody of their children or have unmonitored visitation and other issues. She believes many of the changes that are needed in family law are simple and could occur now, today, without any change in the law. In some cases the reorganization of the court orders would be all that is needed. These small changes would have the added benefit of allowing families to recover faster from the divorce process than is now possible under the present system.
Ultimately these changes would also reduce the trauma, drama and devastation of divorce, minimize the number of valid court orders even provide for the use of such words as privacy and dignity in the divorce process. More immediate and pressing, these changes would act to protect and secure the safety of children.
Other changes would allow divorcing parties to control, for the first time who has what information and when during and after divorce just by reorganizing the court orders. By using the services developed by Custody Calculations, these changes and even more are now possible!
After spending many years on the front lines dealing with families, Catherine saw that the needs of families going through the divorce process were not being met. She sought answers. Research and development took ten years and included interviews both inside and outside the divorce process, business executives, judicial officers, and finance companies. She also reviewed issues related to workman’s compensation and interviewed hospital emergency room staff, evaluators, mediators, school administrators, families and children, police officers, detectives, including specialized and non specialized police units. During development, data and research was further pursued using books, tapes, video recordings and other periodicals and documents from the fields of psychology, parenting, social services, and even included statistics on bankruptcy and other related issues.
In the process of research, Custody Calculations, obtained a broader view of the true impact of family law on our entire social system. The company identified issues like the fact that twenty five percent of all crime in this country may be related to family law, including, homicides, suicides, abduction, kidnap, child abuse, domestic abuse, violation of court orders. Most of this has gone unnoticed by the general public and those within the family law court system.
So what is the loophole and how does it work? The current process of filing for divorce requires no submission of a criminal history. Why is this an issue? Many women have no knowledge of the background and/or criminal history of the men they marry or have children with something that became clear during interviews with specialized police units who deal with registered sexual offenders, rapists and pedophiles.
According to the detectives and officers interviewed these predators seek out – women with young children whom they can abuse, or they have children with women with the specific intent to rape and abuse these infants and children- even their own biological children! The woman with whom they live or those they marry do not have this information, therefore they are unable to provide it to the court during the divorce and custody process. Family law court needs this information as part of making an informed decision for the safety and welfare of the children.
While a majority of the time it is women who are victims of sexual predators, men would benefit from the submission of criminal history by the other party. Men marry women who have criminal backgrounds of which they are unaware of as well. While women are more often guilty of prostitution, drug, and alcohol arrests there are a very small number of women who are sexual predators or women who have been arrested for severe neglect or abuse of their children. Again without this information, the court cannot make an informed decision for the protection, safety and welfare of children.
While on the surface, this change would appear to be overwhelming and would require new legislation, it could be done with a minimum of effort and would ensure the safety of children protecting them from abusers which can hardly be argued against.
Criminal records, testimony or lack thereof, would be submitted by the parties at the onset of the divorce process without further costs or burden to the courts and would be notarized. Verification of the name, date of birth etc could be confirmed against the document. The information would become a part of the court record, to be filed and referred to with the rest of the necessary disclosures when determining custody.

Ultimately this contest is really more about saving lives. Lives like Samy and Lindsey who were only 7 and 8 years old when they were murdered by one of their parents.
