Keeping Children Safe in Family Court
Connecticut Protective Moms is a grass roots organization of moms who are in the midst of divorce or post-judgement divorce proceedings or have finished with their family court case but are trying to protect their children from continued abuse and harm by abusers in a family court setting through advocacy, legislation, mutual support, education.
The lack of education and knowledge of Domestic Violence (DV) abuser tactics among family court professionals - judges, lawyers, GAL, forensic evaluators - during divorce and family court proceedings often put moms and children at further risk of abuse and danger. Our objective is to change the "default" position of laws, court orders, and social attitudes in general to see moms and children protected not only before, but during and after they step into a family court for divorce from an abusive individual. CPM campaigns for new and stronger legislative solutions to family court legislation and loopholes that jeopardize the safety of children.
