Are the odds in your favor or theirs?
The Watchtower Society provides a legal packet for it’s members involved in custody battles with their former mates. The flowing is a paragraph
from the Watchtower Society’s publication entitled Our Kingdom Ministry.
“A packet of legal materials is available when publishers are involved in lawsuits over child custody and
visitation. The packet contains court decisions and other materials designed to assist an attorney who is representing a publisher whose parental fitness is being challenged because
of his or her religious beliefs or practices. The Society's Legal Department should be contacted by the body of elders if (a) court papers or legal documents indicate that the
publisher's religion is going to be attacked; (b) apostate literature, a religious expert, or a former Witness will be used to testify against the publisher; (c) a pretrial
deposition of the publisher will be taken; or (d) a psychological examination or home study is scheduled. The packet offers no assistance in cases involving secular issues such as
support and property.”(Our Kingdom Ministry Aug 1992 vol 35, n0 8)
The Society also retains a staff of attorneys who often work in behalf of the Witness parent to gain custody of their
children so they can be raised in the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The difficulty for the Non-Witness parent is that most attorney’s are not prepared to deal with issues and problems
posed when fighting to get kids out of this cult. Most often the result of custody battles is to have shared custody a sort of 50/50 arrangement with no restrictions on the religious
training and practices of the Jehovah’s Witness parent regarding the children.
At ECC we believe in sole custody for the non-Jehovah’s Witness parent. If you want the kind of expertise that has
resulted in over a hundred cases being decided for the non-Witness parent then call Expert Custody Consultants today for a free initial consultation.
Let us help you get your kids out of the Watchtower jail.
