Macci and Kates lawyers Florida family law appeals all Florida courts Note: this website contains information, research, scholarship, and arguments pertaining to public policy and legal issues. Much of it was gathered by attorney and academic work groups in different jurisdictions. It is not intended to reflect the specifics of actual laws, substantive or procedural, currently in force in any jurisdiction. The information is intended for use by scholars, lawyers, and activists, and is not presented as legal advice. Child custody issues are interconnected with issues of maternity and pregnancy, primary caregiving, parental alienation, child development (education and attachment issues), father's rights, and other family law issues, as well as to issues involving forensic psychologists, guardians ad litem (GALs) and other mental health professionals in the family court system, so check related sections in the Site Index, including those on psychology for other relevant articles. The liznotes index page on family law contains links to recommended off-site locations as well as the on-site articles. There also are extensive pages on this website on women's history, including suffrage, various women's rights documents from the first wave of feminism, and women's military history. In the sections on research and psychology, the guardians ad litem; parenting coordinators; custody evaluators, information involves the various forms of so-called ADR (alternate dispute resolution) practiced by forensic psychologists, parenting coordinators, collaborative lawyers, parenting evaluators, recommending mediators, special masters, court-ordered therapists, court-appointed mental health professionals, supervised visitation centers, and other profiteers of "therapeutic jurisprudence", whose methods involve intrusion and coercion under the threat of court sanctions, and actual or de facto extra-judicial decision-making. This website heavily criticizes these practices, which have multiple things wrong with them, not the least of which is denigration of justice, and the diminution of a publicly observable, regulated, and appealable "rule by law" by substituting the caprice of men and women for evidence and due process.
