Your family is standing on the very edge of a cliff. The drop over the edge is 100% sure to be fatal. The legal situation you're caught up in (whether it's through ignorance or not) is a cougar positioned two inches from your youngest child.
The cougar is violently snarling.
The only thing to make it stop is to plead guilty to a "lesser charge" whether you're guilty or not,
to agree to less than ideal visitation and parental responsibility arrangements because there's no money to make your case heard through trial.
Pleading guilty because there's no money
Too many people plead guilty to things they didn't do just to make the court processes stop.
This is especially true when there is no money for legal fees to go to trial.
Many people in family court agree to visitation schedules that are far less than ideal just to avoid having to go to trial.
Again, there's no money for legal fees.
Many people want to blame the other person for being put in this situation. After all, they're the ones that launched legal action against you right?
I would argue, that the legal system allowed things to get that far to begin with.
Because of it, families suffer a ripple effect that can be felt for years to come. Some people will now have a record, hindering their job search. Others may have had to sell their family home to pay for ongoing legal fees and are now forced to live with friends or family (or worse), adding more stress.
- Ideally, allegations should be proven or denied before a case ever reaches the steps for a court house.
- Ideally, evidences should be verified according to court standards before it's ever allowed to be attached to or submitted with paperwork to the court.
Enter Verifiable Credentials Technology
Verifiable credentials technology can break down every single last claim or statement made on current court documents.
Even the free form areas where pro se individuals try to condense years worth of history into four complete sentences (because that's all the space they court wants to give you).
Verifiable credentials technology can verify the authenticity of the facts being asserted along with the origins of said affirmations. This is true whether it's an individual trying to submit an affidavit or whether it's information coming from a third party, like a bank statement or tax return.
Systems of verification that already exist can be incorporated to cross-reference conflicting claims. This aids in investigations.
Only when things have been sorted and weeded out on who's telling the truth and who isn't as much as possible, should a case proceed.
This reduces the times an individual has to somehow prove their innocence when they really have no idea where to start or what legal options are available to them to make that happen.
It reduces frivolous lawsuits from ever reaching a judge's docket and cleans up the "clogging" that currently exists in the court systems in general.
But that technology isn't fully adopted yet.
Still doesn't take the place of learning for yourself and your loved ones
And as discussed before, that still won't save you. It helps reduce the impacts and effects that could be experienced as a result of having to interact with the legal systems and their related agencies or processes.
Nothing takes the place of you knowing for yourself what can be done, when, and how, if you find yourself caught up in a legal process (through ignorance or not).
The rules and procedures exist for a reason.
You can learn how to make the cougar not only back off, but move back, and stay back until you've been heard properly and fairly.
If you're innocent and the law is on your side, the legal course teaches you how to win even before a trial comes into the picture.
You can protect yourself and your family.
