The following are some of the many news stories and official reports, which expose and discredited the PAS custody switching tactics by judges and court professionals from states coast-to-coast.  (Many of these articles are also included in the First Step Section above)

Read articles by Liz Richards (NAFCJ founder) published n the Washington Times which discredits the fathers rights and their anti-mother tactics.
April 2008 Washington Times     "Parental Rights and Wrongs"
April 2006  Washington Times    "The Other Side of the Fathers rights..."

Judith Reisman, long-time obscenity and sexual deviancy researcher, and NAFCJ supporter since 1996, has written several articles for WorldNet Daily exposing fathers rights ally, Richard Gardner & PAS as being pro-pedophilia.  This April 1999 article refers to NAFCJ leaders Liz Richards and Jan Barstow

N.O.W. President Kim Gandy says Richard Gardner's PAS is a "Sick Reality" against women in her May 2007 article

The Leadership Council, founded by Baltimore, Maryland based psychologist, Joy Silberg, has issued several reports discrediting the PAS custody tactics which are frequently used in courts against mothers who make good-faith abuse complaints against her child's father.
The most compelling
Leadership report was done by Stephanie Dallam, who uses Richard Gardner's own published words to expose him as a pervert trying to justify deviant sex with children.   Another Leadership Council, professional, Robert A. Geffner, who conducts annual conferences in San Diego, CA, has written extensively against the widespread court practices harmful to family abuse victims.

Albany, New York Professor, Dr. Maureen Therese Hannah, sponsors a Battered Mothers Custody Conference each January which includes many of the prominent professionals who are very critical of the widespread practice of many courts and social services in discrediting abuse complaints made by mother complaining about domestic violence and child abuse by fathers.

New York State advocacy group Stop Family Violence also works to exposing court injustices

Garland Waller, a Boston communications professor, has made documentaries exposing the injustices by the court against victimized mothers and their children.

Learn what we are doing to stop the anti-protective mother court problems and how you can stop the problems in your court and your case.

The National Alliance For Family Court Justice, founded in 1993 by Elisabeth Richards of Annandale, Virginia, is an international group of volunteers dedicated to addressing system failure in the courts and social services resulting in retaliation against non-offending parents who complain of family abuse, especially mothers of children who disclose sexual abuse.

NAFCJ activists are dedicated to creating synergy and power through networking and lobbying for change for those caught up in the vast web of custody corruption involving such court chicanery as political pork barrel cronyism, guardian ad-litem kickbacks, fraudulent psychological testing by GAL appointed evaluators and local Bar Associations who run MCLE seminars with judges (Mandatory Continuing Legal Education) concealing contributions "coffee and flower" slush funds through County Court Judicial Associations.

Through the efforts of various highly financed Fathers Rights groups affiliated with secret judicial associations of family, conciliation, mediation and juvenile courts, who are united under the guise of promoting non-litigious domestic dispute resolution along with other smoke-screen covers such as responsible fatherhood, millions of middle and lower income citizens have been deliberately cheated of their legal right to due process. The efforts of  "well-oiled" fathers rights activists who tap into "deep pockets (in their own words) of federal and private grants while traveling North America, Europe and Australia promoting pedophile friendly syndromes  such as Parental Alienation Syndrome, have effectively silenced women and children's outcries of brutality, rape and incest to a vast array of professionals in the divorce industry.

In their lust for power and control, these bad dads have reaped a plethora of praise and manna from federal heaven through DHHS (Access/Visitation programs,  DOJ (Arbitration/Mediation) programs, Responsible Fatherhood Programs, Co-Parenting Programs, and other mislabeled Court-Based federally sponsored “Family Services.”  

Considering that the recipients of the bulk of the money goes to pay well-off guys who spend most of their time recruiting new members for their custody switching scheme and lobbying legislators for presumptive joint custody (the demise of child support enforcement for all time) and easing restrictions on incest and family violence -- this sinister "snake oil" has more to do with power, lust and money than their insincere pretense for the best interests of children.

Open Letter to the Fatherhood Movement, Liz Richards' challenge to Fathers' Rights Leadership to admit their true agenda.

Read Liz Richards' Letter to
Ron Haskins, former staff director for the House Ways & Means Subcommittee [which has jurisdiction over a wide variety of family programs] and a co-founding Children's Rights Council official, misused his Congressional authority to write into legislation, programs and policies which benefit Fathers Rights membership while concealing his own conflict of interest.

Liz Richards lobbied leading Congressional offices about Haskins misdeeds and conflicts of interest. Within months, Haskins quit and is now with the Brookings Institute.  Now his protégé and CRC supporter, Wade Horn, has been installed as Assistant Secretary of HHS, in charge of all DHHS “Family Programs.” See Liz Richards’s letter to Horn, as NFI President, charging him with being a CRC front.

CRC and the Fatherhood Initiative hype claims of educating dead-beat dads how to be "responsible" in exchange for providing federally funded assistance to enforce their visitation rights through programs including the "access/visitation" program and Responsible Fatherhood programs which is nothing but disingenuous drivel, a bogus cover story for their real agenda of switching custody and giving legal advantages to fathers willing to instigate litigation for their judicial kick-back scheme.

While fatherhood organizations publicly cry wolf about mass victimization of fathers by "biased" pro-mother courts, they conceal their affiliation and business ties with the very judges who are hearing their domestic cases.  The href="> history page describes in detail their wide influence in family court proceedings.      Meyer Elkin, co-founder of AFCC, was also a CRC co-founder. Both organizations are heavily cross-affiliated. The AFCC runs front companies which develop, implement and evaluate federal facade programs allegedly assisting troubled families and children, which is how they hide that men are frequent winners in all forms of domestic litigation, such as getting child support forgiven and reduced, getting family abuse charges thrown out, and getting sole custody - frequently by ex-parte orders, of children (including infants) with no more wrong doing against the mother than being labeled angry or emotional.

For further information on how federally funded programs impact individual cases, please contact Liz Richards by e-mail or by phone [if by phone, please call in the evening] at or 703-658-3543.

Writer Backing Bush Plan Had Gotten Federal Contract, By Howard Kurtz, Washington Post Staff Writer

"In 2002, syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher repeatedly defended President Bush's push for a $300 million initiative encouraging marriage as a way of strengthening families.

"But Gallagher failed to mention that she had a $21,500 contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to help promote the president's proposal. Her work under the contract, which ran from January through October 2002, included drafting a magazine article for the HHS official overseeing the initiative, writing brochures for the program and conducting a briefing for department officials.

"Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing it?" Gallagher said yesterday. "I don't know. You tell me." She said she would have "been happy to tell anyone who called me" about the contract but that "frankly, it never occurred to me" to disclose it."

It includes sections on the history of family law and the so-called "fathers' rights" (FR) movement. Problems identified include gender bias against women, loss of due process, fraud, corruption and the use of bogus "syndromes" to pathologize motherhood.

Creative Loafing "Losing Custody"  by Donna Freydkin -- Abusive man wins custody through false reporting, PAS and ex parte, interstate communications between a judge and her divorce attorney appointed as guardian ad litem.  NAFCJ activists works years to expose their fraudulent activities. 

Portnoy’s Complaint, "The appeals process is very limited and not much of a viable option," says Portnoy. "It's a judge-only decision without a jury."  So, she doesn’t appeal, because she’s on a FR rant… "I do see a lot of false allegations of abuse and it has become a very powerful weapon. Sometimes it's legitimate and sometimes it's a weapon," says Portnoy. "Judges want to err on the side of the child, and if there's any potential that it's true, dads can sometimes lose out."

NOW anti-PAS resolution

National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges [anti-PAS] Guide, "The discredited "diagnosis" of "PAS" (or allegation of "parental alienation"), quite apart from its scientific invalidity, inappropriately asks the court to assume that the children's behaviors and attitudes toward the parent who claims to be "alienated" have no grounding in reality. It also diverts attention away from the behaviors of the abusive parent, who may have directly influenced the children's responses by acting in violent, disrespectful, intimidating, humiliating and/or discrediting ways toward the children themselves, or the children's other parent. "

American Judges Association  Studies show batterers convince authorities that the victim is unfit, undeserving of sole custody in approximately 70% of challenged cases and that in approximately one-half of abusive families, some form of physical and/or sexual abuse of children exists.

Model Code of the Family Violence Project, National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCFCJ, 1998) "rebuttable presumption that it is detrimental to the child, not in the best interest of the child to be placed in sole custody, joint legal custody, or joint physical custody with the perpetrator of family violence"

"H.R. 4678 also must be opposed as it furthers the intrusion of the federal government into family life through the use of federal funds to support 'fatherhood programs.'  Mr. Speaker, the federal government is neither constitutionally authorized nor institutionally competent to promote responsible fatherhood.  In fact, by leveling taxes on responsible parents to provide special programs for irresponsible parents the federal government is punishing responsible fathers!"

Children's Rights Council, Formed in 1985 in Washington, DC, definitely the kingpin in the fatherhood movement, closely tied to other leading groups such as ACFC and NCFC. While they claim to only work for benign goals such as presumptive joint custody, they are really ring-leaders for a bad-dad's custody scheme which involves scaring divorcing men into believing that system is rigged for women, then luring them into joining one of their locally affiliated groups, getting them to pay up front money to one of the AFCC affiliated attorneys in a custody switching program. Dad's attorney fees and other expenses are paid back with federal fatherhood program money after the deal is done. CRC also runs programs to educate judges, lawyers and court evaluators on Richard Gardner's incest friendly Parental Alienation Syndrome and anti-protective parent bashing.

Memory, Abuse, and Science: Questioning Claims about the False Memory Syndrome Epidemic, Kenneth S. Pope, Scientific Analysis on the so-called False Memory Syndrome

"If those who question, doubt, or disagree are authoritatively characterized by professionals as hate-filled True Believers, paranoid cultists, or Hitler-like zealots, the process of free and independent analysis of FMSF claims may be affected. If patients currently seeking legal health care services from those who question or disagree with FMSF are forced to cross picket lines to obtain those services, if the privacy of their therapy is invaded, or if they are diagnosed without their participation as suffering a false memory syndrome, then their freedom of choice may be affected.

Claims grounded most firmly in the scientific tradition are those emerging from hypotheses that are falsifiable. Scientists bear an essential responsibility to examine primary data, research methodology, assumptions, and inferences. Science works best when claims and hypotheses can be continually questioned. That which tends to disallow doubt and discredit anyone who disagrees is unlikely to foster the scientific venture or promote public policies and clinical practices based on scientific principles. Each scientific claim should prevail or fall on is research validation and logic."

Parental Kidnapping

After your children have been kidnapped or lost in a custody battle, through no fault of your own, to a violent batterer and/or sexual predator who are you going to call? Law enforcement, the Governor, state Attorney General, the FBI, United States State Department, the Department of Justice?  Maybe you might file a lawsuit in state or federal court only to have it dismissed by disreputable judges such as federal Judge Julie Carnes.

Soon you find what others who have gone before you know, that there is no remedy, no one in government who cares and even worse, officials profit from your children's misery by paying lip service to complaints and maintaining the child abuse status quo.

Faye Yager, founder of Children of the Underground, lauded as the saintly savior of sexually abused children on day-time talk shows and prime-time news, in reality works with fathers' rights lawyers and politicians whose private agenda is to make a lot of money and protect pedophiles.

In April 1999, Faye and Howard Yager entered into a Confidential Settlement Agreement with Bipin Shah to use her "best efforts" to find his children in exchange for his $2M. According to sources, this wasn't the first time Faye turned in children for ransom, and it won't be the last.

Please Tell My Dad, Hartford Courant, By KAREN GUZMAN, Courant Staff Writer, "You hate Dad and you want to see your grandmother," the reporter repeated. -- "Now, do you think that, or did someone tell you to say that?" -- "Mom," said Randy shyly. -- "Mom what?"  -- "Told me to say it."

Family drama leads to a Swiss village, The Philadelphia Inquirer, By Stephanie A. Stanley and Ralph Vigoda, Under the proposal, Bunch said, if Yager led Shah and Rubenstein to their children, they would dismiss their lawsuits against Yager and use their "best, good-faith efforts to attempt to dissuade any criminal prosecution" of the Yagers. The proposal also called for Shah to reimburse Yager for travel expenses incurred to find his children, Bunch said.

Faye's Deposition, under construction

A Brick Wall, By Stan DeCoster - Jacquie Glassenberg/The Day, Jeffrey Rubenstein's son, Randy, was abducted by his wife and Faye Yager into the Children of the Underground three years ago. Yager fabricated allegations of abuse by sending Bonnie to a hired-gun psychologist. Despite federal and private investigations, and Faye's enormous political clout with The Clinton Administration and U.S. Sen. Zell Miller, no solid leads have emerged on the boy's whereabouts.

Yager, Her Ilk Are No Friends To Children, Day Staff Columnist, What I saw looked misguided and cruel. But for an informed opinion, I took the tape to experts in child abuse, who provided a list of do's and don'ts when interviewing a child. Among the major don'ts: Prompting. Threatening. Lying.  Suffice it to say that Yager and Rubenstein did them all.”

Zell Miller and the Georgia Fatherhood Programs

Anneewakee, a survivor of a state supported sodomy school for troubled youth speaks out. State officials started receiving complaints that Louis Poetter was molesting teens as early as 1969, but did nothing to stop him. Jimmy Carter placed Poetter's best friend, Jim Parham, in charge of revamping the watch dog agency, DFACS, that was supposed to oversee Poetter's daily operations. In 1986 Poetter, who received assistance from state officials, including former Sen. Zell Miller,  pleaded guilty to a 3-decade long sodomy fest. Recently, he appealed his sodomy conviction and won, after the Georgia Supremes ruled it unconstitutional. Will the Supremes rule in his favor so he can continue absconding with little boys to his Mexican properties?
