if one of your children was in a situation where they were being abused and neglected in every way imaginable? Would you risk legal ramifications to protect them?

nope i wouldnt.

 

i wouldnt do anything illegal because my child would have to pay for it. esp. if the other party was smart and had money on their side. 

 

i would take the legal route and get the smartest lawyer with the best experience. 

 

however doing either is not a solution. 

 

just being in that position SUCKS!!!

 

i have a lot of friends in this situation - and it sucks, sucks, sucks... because the legal system here (esp. in some states) are soooo corrupt and not equal. 

 

if you are poor and your family is poor - or rather doing ok without extra cash - it just SUCKS!!!! 

 

some courts still buy into the parent alienation syndrome. 

 

honestly i am not sure what i would do. but since i am in california i'd probably choose the legal route. unless i was savvy enough to disappear and 'cease to exist' with my child/children.

Depends on the abuse. The legal route is best.
