Aug 17, 2021 at 2:17 comment added Ryan_L @DaleM ~90% was from my memory. The US Census office said 82.5% in 2014, page 4 in the link. Other sources I'm seeing say it can be as high as 93%. I think the variation in these measurements is varying definitions of primary custody. census.gov/content/dam/Census/library/publications/2016/demo/…

Aug 17, 2021 at 0:42 comment added Ryan_L ~90% of custody cases end with the mother getting custody. I don't see any possible explanation for such a discrepancy besides the court assuming the mother is the correct choice. How else do you explain such a huge difference except bias?
Aug 16, 2021 at 20:34 comment added Crazymoomin Would it still be possible to make a formal complaint to an oversight body like a county ombudsman?

Many many countries in europe... you have a kid... here is your custody and support - fight it and lose and you will pay for the other person's attorney. In the states - each state's cases are 90% grey area that lawyers debate on... and it is more about which lawyer knows the judge better. That is why cases like these happen. He would need to sue the state govt too.
Aug 16, 2021 at 17:49 comment added blankip Your answer is right but the tailspin on the courts is wrong - really wrong. Family courts are overly busy, child protection is too busy, guardians too busy, judges too busy... not because of these extreme cases. They are too busy because of the fundamental laws of each state which instead of looking out for the child, they are lobbied by the bar association and the lawyers of the state. That means our lawyers make more money (speaking from practice) and everyone else loses including the child... cont...

Aug 16, 2021 at 10:52 comment added Comic Sans Seraphim @user253751 For what damages?
Aug 16, 2021 at 10:20 comment added user253751 @Studoku on the other hand, if you could, half the country would currently be suing you for not voting for Trump
