Think nationally, act locally…

Creating local Court Watch groups may be a good idea.

It could be available for dads who fear misrepresentation in the courtroom. Court Watchers consist of groups of men and women, dressed in business suits, who sit quietly in the back of the courtroom and take notes. The purpose is to let the court personnel and others present know that they are being watched, and that they will be held accountable for their behavior and decisions. The presence of a large and highly visible group of people is very effective. It also provides a source of support and empowerment for those who request it.

We need more information about Court Watches, especially about their effectiveness in Family Law matters.

In practice, a local organization would be needed for volunteering, assistance, and referrals…

Please post your comments. Are judges really influenced by Court Watchers?
