Formed by a coalition of Family Court victims and activists in 2003 by the South Palm Beach County Chapter of NOW, Families Against Court Travesties, Inc. (FACTS) is primarily concerned that the family court system is harming children by treating them as property, ignoring their rights to contact with both parents, denying their parents due process, and in general not considering the children’s best interests. Some of us are victims of these injustices, some are friends and family members of victims, and some are simply devoted to healthy children and families.
FACTS’ Mission Statement
Families Against Court Travesties, Inc. (FACTS)’ mission is to assist families who have been placed into a crisis situation by the family courts or other government agencies. By implementing a court-monitoring and reporting system, our goal is to ensure that the best interests of the child prevail in family court and that due process and equity are the norm. We are also committed to educating the public on these issues
