    Simply another of thousands of such cases to support fact that in U.S. divorce and custody matters, mothers are awarded Primary Physical Custody - the cornerstone in the setting of child support obligatory dollar amounts - of minor children when such children are involved. Also substantiates the fact that in the United States, divorce and custody comprise over half of all civil litigation, constituting the cash cow of the judiciary, bringing a host of employment and earnings to tens of thousands - both public and private sector - from coast to coast. The Family Law Gestapo and its huge entourage of personnel depend upon - for their very existence - broken, single-mother homes. The first principle of family court is therefore: remove the father. When fathers remain with their families, the divorce practitioners earn nothing. This is why the first thing a Family Court does when it summons a father on a divorce petition - even if he has done nothing wrong and not agreed to the divorce - is to strip him of custody of his children. While mothers also fall afoul of divorce courts, fathers are their principal rivals. Once the father is eliminated, the state functionally replaces him as protector and provider. By removing the father, the State also creates a host of problems for itself to solve: Child poverty, child abuse, juvenile crime, and other problems associated with single-mother homes. In this way, the divorce Gestapo is self-perpetuating and self-expanding. Involuntary divorce is a marvelous tool that allows for the infinite expansion of government power.
