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.

Watch for their highly anticipated launch date of July 31, 2006.

MSI (Multi-Systems, Inc.), a hospitality technology solutions provider with a focus on property management software and solutions, is pleased to be an active partner and participant in the opening of the new Ronald McDonald House at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and if that child is ill, it can often take a community. Ronald McDonald House at Phoenix Children’s Hospital furthers its commitment by providing a safe, loving environment for families that travel and wish to remain close to their child during their treatment. MSI has long been supportive of Ronald McDonald House by providing both property management software solutions and a time commitment.
“We provided MSI’s Enterprise Property Management Software in a true ASP environment to run and operate the original Phoenix Ronald McDonald House, and we have done it again for the new one. Community is one of MSI’s core values, and partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities allowed us to make the volunteers’ [at the house] lives easier through enhanced property management software technology, as well as make guests and patients comfortable in a room we designed and furnished,” said Tim Tiller, MSW, President, MSI.
MSI adopted a room at the new Ronald McDonald House as part of its continuing relationship within the community, and the property management software company’s team, lead by Kim Gollehon, Executive Assistant, took this activity to heart.
“I enjoy working for a company that is proud to participate in its community and truly takes that commitment to heart. It makes me feel good to know that when a family has a child at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, they can at least be comfortable in their surroundings and close by,” stated Gollehon. “This was a labor of love for all of us.”
“I think the biggest reward, for me, was the end result – the completion of the room. It is really easy to write a check to charity; it’s another thing to participate actively. It was great to see the amazing team we have at MSI come together and volunteer, sharing their talents, muscle, and dedication for our community, so sick children and families can have a home away from home that is incredibly rewarding,” stated Donna Martin, Sr. Account Executive.
The new house boasts 18 guest rooms, many of which are decorated and furnished by Phoenix corporations. The original 45-room Ronald McDonald House on Roanoke Avenue, which is still open, had to turn away many families because of overcrowding last year. It is the hope of the staff at the house they never have to turn a family away again.
Ronald McDonald House Executive Director, Nancy Roach commented, “The new House will allow us to meet the community’s demand for our services for many years to come. We are very fortunate to have partners like MSI who have worked so hard to create a loving, comfortable environment for families who have traveled to Phoenix with sick children and need a temporary home away from home.”
The Ronald McDonald House Charities is just one local organization benefiting from the property management software company’s time and talents. MSI’s founder and CEO, Rick Munson, sits on the Board of Directors for the Phoenix Crisis Nursery. Crisis Nursery’s mission is to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect by providing protection, support and opportunities to troubled families and their children. Tim Tiller, MSW and President of the property management software company, is privileged to hold a position on the Board of Directors for Central Arizona Shelter Services also known as CASS. CASS’ mission is to empower men, women and children with diverse needs to end their homelessness by providing shelter and supportive services. MSI, as a company, firmly believes in giving back and encourages all team members to participate in something that is larger than they are. In an effort to provide associates outreach opportunities, the property management software company has created an internal Humanities Committee. Whether it’s helping an associate or someone else, we’ve found it incredibly rewarding to participate in a bigger picture.
