A Brazilian Judge Wrong on the Law, Wrong on Child’s Best Interests

A Brazilian Judge Wrong on the Law, Wrong on Child’s Best Interests

June 29, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Continued from yesterday. In January, 2014, two separate arms of the Brazilian government weighed in on the case of Marcelle Guimaraes’ abduction of her son, Nicolas (Nico). Each of them supported Nico’s father, Dr. Christopher Brann.

US human trafficking report highlights dangers of institutionalizing children – WESTERNMASSNEWS.com

(CNN) — The State Department released its annual Trafficking in Persons Report Thursday, highlighting the state of human trafficking across the globe by ranking countries on their efforts to tackle the issue. But the report, released as the US government faces international scrutiny for its processing of migrants along the southern border, is careful to differentiate between cases of “trafficking” and “smuggling.” In a speech last week to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, President Donald Trump said immigration “loopholes”…

Brazilian Judge Wrong on Family Law, Wrong on the Hague Convention

Brazilian Judge Wrong on Family Law, Wrong on the Hague Convention

June 28, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Continued from yesterday. Brazilian Judge Arali Duarte didn’t stop at wrongly deciding Dr. Brann’s parenting time with his son Nico, reversing herself a week later and then reversing herself again. No, she went on to utterly misunderstand/disregard the plain meaning of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Read More…

Time’s Poster Child Actually a Victim of Parental Kidnapping

June 24, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization The to-do about the Trump Administration’s decision to enforce criminal law by arresting undocumented aliens, even when they’re in the company of minors gets more hypocritical, ironic and frankly dishonest with each passing day.  It started with a photographic image of kids in holding cells that went viral over social media.  That photo was quickly taken down when it was revealed that it had been taken in 2014,…

My first post on that is here. His second and third myths don’t require a lot of explication. “Women Want Everything 50-50” is well-known to be false. What women and men both want is a firm sense that a relationship is fair, i.e. that neither is pulling…
