My expertise is in family law. I’m sharing this article from +Steven Sweat an expert in personal injury law. Some of my clients, after suffering abuse from domestic violence or parental alienation, want to sue the abuser. See this article—you will need help in this area.
 
#Californialaw   on #emotionaldistressclaims   is based upon hundreds of years of jurisprudence including statutes and case law.  The rights of any particular individual to claim damages for psychiatric trauma from an intentional or negligent act depends upon many factors including whether the person suffered actual physical harm or was in the so-called “zone of danger” when a catastrophe happened.  California breaks down these rights in basically two legal causes of action as follows:

Parental Alienation is a conscious and deliberate effort by a parent to cause a child to reject or withdraw from the other parent. PA is different from Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) as PA does not require to finding of a "syndrome" (medical disease or condition). PAS is difficult to prove by virtue of the fact that it has never been accepted as a medical condition in the United States.

My child came home with bruises after visiting his dad over the weekend. When I asked how he got the bruises, he said he couldn't remember. I suspect his father might have hit him as he has a bad temper. I am thinking of calling the police and stopping the visits. Is that too drastic? I want my son to have a good relationship with his father but also I want to protect him from any harm. ...

Post by +The Law Office of James E. Novak --what are the legal lines at a police stop.
 
U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Tips Scale towards 4th Amendment Rights at Police Stops

Police cannot prolong stop’s duration beyond its initial purpose, without reasonable suspicion.

This is a positive ruling that recognizes 4th amendment protections against unlawful detentions, searches and seizures of drivers. 

The US Supreme Court held that it would be unlawful if it resulted in the overall stop being “prolonged beyond” the time reasonably required to complete the mission of the stop, in absence of reasonable suspicion; and that detention drawn out after the resolution of the traffic matter for the K-9 drug check was in in violation of the Fourth Amendment.

This article contains the following features: 

• Case Summary; ;
• Overview of US District Court ruling; 
• Overview of Appeals Court ruling; 
• Overview of U.S. Supreme Court 
• Impacts of Ruling on Courts and Drivers in Arizona; 
• Your 4th Amendment Rights at a Stop: 
• Arizona Criminal Defense 

In its decision the U.S. Supreme court did not repudiating the Government’s argument that if an officer could incrementally prolong a stop, and earn bonus time by completing the initial traffic matter expeditiously, in enable them to conduct a K-9 check within a reasonable amount of time, then the detention for the K-9 check is lawful.  

Discussion Questions 

• Do you think it should be lawful for police to proceed with a K-9 check or other criminal investigation without reasonable suspicion, even if the duration is not prolonged past a reasonable amount of time to complete the initial mission? 

• Should more parameters be drawn for what is a “reasonable amount of time”? If so, how might that be accomplished? 

•Do you think the ruling will compel police agencies to train officers to perform tasks in such a sequence that will allow for enough time to conduct a routine stop, without prolonging it for a K-9 check, in absence of reasonable suspicion of illegal drug activity? (from Justice Alito’s dissent)?   

• Law enforcement agencies with more resources in background checks and technology might be able to complete a stop more expeditiously than a jurisdiction with lesser resources.  How will that impact the rights of drivers in jurisdictions with more resources v. less technology in absence of reasonable suspicion to extend the stop?

How do you avoid arguments and unnecessary court filings over child custody and visitation orders? A good start is to make the orders clear and specific. If an order is subject to two reasonable interpretations, then this order is unenforceable. Have you experienced this problem?

Do you know the legal definition of Domestic Violence? It's broader than you may think. And, committed by either parent, it can have a significant impact on child custody rights. This is my next article of Domestic Violence and Child Custody. http://www.san-diego-fathers-rights.lawyer/san-diego-fathers-lose-custody-of-children-accused-of-domestic-violence/

What is the impact of Domestic Violence incidents or findings on current child custody issues? There is no bright line answer to this question as nuances and evidence differs in these situations. In general, recent DV findings and DV findings against the parent of the child involved are the most damaging to the DV perpetrator parent. In San Diego child custody cases, even these more damaging situations are not dispositive. Parents involved in these situations must understand how evidentiary presumptions affect the child custody issue. http://www.san-diego-fathers-rights.lawyer/old-domestic-violence-charge-san-diego-child-custody/

Thanks +Debrah Diva and +Casey Schuster . The food, consistent with the Lauren style, is traditional American and first class. A chicken dinner with gravy and pureed potato is what I want for Thanksgiving! Perfect.

Will an old Domestic Violence incident harm your child custody request? If you have a DV incident against a person, not the parent of your child, will this keep you from getting joint custody? These and other questions are covered in my series on DV here:

Is Domestic Violence disregarded in our society? A $180 mil payday for Floyd Mayweather Jr. was big news after the fight. But also a sizable protest before the fight made news—one about Floyd’s reported history of domestic violence against women including the mother of his child. The protesters were demanding that the state Athletic Commission take action against Floyd. My office works with domestic violence cases. Under the laws of California there are substantial DV consequences including the loss of child custody rights.
