Family Court Atrocities: Like the Holocaust, They Never Happened?


By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

As the Nazis retreated from Eastern Europe in the waning months of World War II, they made a last ditch effort to cover up their death camps and war crimes. During evacuations from those camps, any prisoner who could not keep up was summarily executed.

Throughout that war, civilians were shot on sight simply because they failed to step aside for Nazi officers on the streets of Warsaw and elsewhere. And those who exposed the truth about such atrocities were hunted down, subjected to show trials and publicly executed.

Sixteen year old Helmuth Hubenur became the youngest victim of the great cover-up as the accused during a Nazi show trial devoid of due process. His crime: blowing the whistle on Nazi propaganda through leaflets and discreet communications. He was beheaded for his exercise of free speech.

Despite the overwhelming evidence of these atrocities, even today, there are those who assert that the Holocaust never happened. I need no convincing on this or any other atrocity inflicted upon civilians during World War II because I lived it through nightmarish stories my dad gave me at the dinner table as a boy.

My father spent five years in a Nazi camp and was nearly shot on sight by a prison guard whose Luger pistol was pushed aside by a fellow officer just as the trigger was released. These are the sort of games that the SS, Gestapo and Nazi military played on the Eastern Front.

Today’s modern day family courts are engaged in a holocaust of their own. They too are covering up evidence of serious misconduct in a variety of ways far more sophisticated than the Nazis used. Such cover-ups are provoking atrocities such as veteran Thomas Ball who burned himself alive in front of a New Hampshire family court to protest the state seizure of his children.

Countless American veterans are committing suicide for the same reason while other victims turn to murder of their own children. Numerous examples of this were provided in our report delivered to all members of Congress by aggrieved parents during our Parent March on Washington last May. To date, there has been no recognition given to this modern day holocaust. If you don’t acknowledge it, it never happened.

That is why it has become necessary to make a return trip to Washington D.C. for our second annual Parent March on Washington tentatively set for June 3-5 using the same format as last year. We need to grow our numbers into the thousands to impact the presidential and congressional elections this year.

Of course you can continue to complain instead from the comfort of your keyboards at home, but this is the kind of apathy which has fueled the human rights violations in these courts. Indeed my father escaped to America never imagining that a shoot-on-sight threat would be made against his own son. But it did occur to this whistle blower as explained in the opening segment of my brief filed in federal court recently.

That federal court was more obsessed with its technical rules than the human rights violations detailed from my 12-year ordeal. Indeed not a single atrocity received the recognition of a footnote. This is why it will now be presented before a federal appeals court in Manhattan. I am committed to opening our federal court doors to family court victims everywhere.

Here are two excerpts from that court brief which should be of great interest to all Americans who believe in our Constitution and its dictate that no one is above the law, not even life tenured federal judges:

While our national government is immersed with issues of war crimes overseas, the killing of civilians in the Middle East, and human rights violations involving the separation of parents and children unlawfully crossing our border with Mexico, an American citizen, father of two daughters and the plaintiff in this action remains subject to a “shoot on sight” threat by a traffic cop purporting to enforce an unlawfully issued child support warrant. That threat was made to a driver of plaintiff’s vehicle on August 30, 2018 during a traffic stop at the interstate toll booths in Albany, New York. It has not been remedied as an ongoing mode of censorship.  

The chilling and incredulous threat was not isolated. It resembled the police murder of Walter Scott in South Carolina on April 4, 2015. An African-American father, he was fleeing unarmed from a traffic stop to avoid recurring support warrants and jail terms. He was shot dead in the back five times, a horrific event that would have been disbelieved by any prosecutor or judge had it not been captured on a cell phone by a concealed by-stander. Family of the slain dad recovered $6 million in a wrongful death suit, but that method of extracting child support could never bring back to life a loving father. A greed infested government was now killing for cash.

As a parenting rights advocate, the father here attended the funeral of Walter Scott, addressing national media on the need to reform draconian support enforcement practices, never imagining that he could become victim to a similar (but retaliatory) incident three years later. A fatal outcome was avoided by his fateful absence from that vehicle. Seven patrol cars featured armed police seeking to coerce the driver into locating their targeted parent while drug dealers and real criminals were driving by. Reminiscent of Nazi practices in the day, this incident was corroborated by affidavit, recorded interview and presumably a genuine traffic incident report.   

The latter incident becomes more shocking when disclosing that the support warrant, coupled with its secret high alert bulletin, was issued against a prominent civil rights attorney whose law licenses were suspended after a conscientious stand made against court corruption. A $35,500 payment was omitted from a violation petition and support summary offered against this attorney-plaintiff at a hearing on May 17, 2018. Both were prepared by agents of the state’s child support bureaucracy, a behemoth white collar army that few could withstand. They are named in this action as best as can be expected given the obstacles erected that shield their misconduct. 

In short, a giant fraud was exposed by the targeted parent. A substantially inflated support debt would guarantee his incarceration to avenge and suppress public criticisms of a reckless, revenue-lusting state agency. Its agents, and the family courts which effectively employ them, are rewarded by the size and number of support collections under Title IV-D of the federal Social Security Act. Apart from a systemic bias which this obviously instills among ostensibly neutral decision makers, the resulting gold mine was protected at the sole expense of the whistle blower.

A calculated scheme of censorship was hatched that could not have been executed unless other state agents acting under pretext of “judicial immunity” were involved. They included a racist city judge, defendant Gerald Popeo, who was improperly assigned to his critic’s family court matters for personal revenge, thereby removing all jurisdiction to issue orders and arrest warrants; a scheming, novice, hearing officer, defendant Natalie Carraway, who displayed utter incompetence as a trier of fact and denied her statutory authority to decide constitutional issues; a chief family court clerk, defendant Barbara Porta, who with defendant Kelly Hawse-Koziol, effected personal jurisdiction over their targeted parent by directing a deputy sheriff (court security) to abuse his limited scope of duties; and the deputy’s superior, defendant Sheriff Robert Maciol, who crafted a high-alert dossier and publicly admitted its unlawful leak to the media. 

Together with earlier actors, the state killed a messenger of court reform by destroying his reputation and credibility. To illustrate, after a television news feature during the Walter Scott funeral, a follow-up interview minutes later focused on the retaliatory license suspensions and defamatory record available to reporters by a simple Google search. It empowered the current defendants years later to conceal their fraud upon this whistle blower and our federal government by denying and/or destroying the inflated summary and hearing record. These were prerequisites for any appeal or report to federal and state authorities. The fix was in and free speech was out.

A threat of death during arrest and harm during incarceration were the proverbial “nail in the coffin” of First Amendment values. This 2018 support violation process ended without a perfected appeal, accountability or transparency by coerced payment of $46,805. Those monies came not from any earnings that were foreclosed by other modes of retribution, but by loans and donations from alarmed family, former clients and intimidated followers. It was and remains a mode of extortion that can scarcely be distinguished from loan sharks in America’s underworld. 

 The foregoing “process” is only one of the many examples of persecution suffered by this conscientious attorney who was acting on his ethical duty to expose lawyer misconduct and related ethical duty to volunteer professional time for the improvement of our judiciary. Other examples include a permanent separation from his precious daughters without any child protection report or finding of unfit parenting; fabricated college degrees to justify “imputed income,” elevated support obligations, and debtor imprisonment without due process or jury rights; and a ten year, indefinite suspension of law licenses needed to make support payments despite 23 unblemished years as a corruption fighting lawyer with no record of malpractice. The corruption reported by this targeted parent involved matters of great public concern.

It featured a pedophile custody judge assigned to this attorney’s child custody case who was permanently removed from the bench; a family judge exposed for his alcohol consumption who suspended his critic’s parenting time due to a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” (wedding toast) when no unfit parenting could be found; the racist judge censured by a commission for threatening violence from the bench who issued warrants to avenge plaintiff’s suspected involvement in that censure; a record 42 trial level jurists assigned since 2006 to an originally uncontested divorce; and a chaotic court structure that New York’s former chief judge declared was “absurdly complex… difficult to understand, hard to navigate and a burden to administer.” 

Shockingly, when proper recourse was sought in federal court, the dysfunction of this court system was blamed on the victim who had nothing to do with its creation. Life tenured judges in the Northern District of New York, charged with a duty of upholding our Bill of Rights, betrayed a greater concern for judicial reputation. Complaints were selectively evaluated to exclude critical facts, law and case citations to achieve adverse outcomes. Utterly disparaged as “rambling,” “incomprehensible,” “frivolous,” and anything contrived from a thesaurus, they were dismissed to convince the public that there was no merit to clear human rights violations.  

Consequently, with each dismissal culminating in financial penalties and an anti-filing order, the retaliation in state court escalated to the outrage of that “shoot on sight” warrant. Yet the federal system had its own dysfunction which closed the doors of all courts to this victim.

Outdated abstention practices which deferred federal violations to state courts were abused. Hence, when the next punitive support petition was filed in 2019, the present action emerged in state court to obtain the 2018 record and related relief. However, after moving to have prior cases filed there, New York’s attorney general removed this one to federal court with defenses that would only remand the same case back to state court. This was chaos on steroids which “shocked the conscience” and defied a rational system of courts under our dual form of government.

Another segment of this brief ignored by a lower federal court emphasizes the founding purpose of our federal courts:

Although the framers of our Constitution vested the judicial power of the United States in “one supreme court, and in such inferior Courts as Congress may from time to time ordain and establish,” U.S. Const. Article III, section 1, the immense expansion of our nation, the numbers of its people and the complexities of society have, as a practical matter, left this extraordinary duty to 94 district courts. They are routinely cited as the principal guardians of federal rights established by the People and Congress, see generally publications of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts; Marbury v Madison, 5 US 137 (1803). Federalist Papers No. 78. 

In Sprint Communications v Jacobs, 571 US 69 (2013), the Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion reaffirming a district court’s “obligation” to hear and decide federal law cases. Citing Colorado River Water District v United States, 424 US 800, 817 (1976), it described this duty to be “virtually unflagging.” Writing for the Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reiterated that a federal district court has “no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which was not given,” Cohen v Virginia, 6 Wheat 264, 404 (1821).  A strong rebuke was sent to lower federal courts which were abusing an abstention rule well beyond its narrow contours to dismiss valid federal court complaints. 

The plaintiff in this case, a 12-year victim of federal law violations of the highest order, has been turned back time and again by the federal district court for the Northern District of New York. An arsenal of abstention practices, jurisdictional limitations and prudential policies was exploited to “decline the exercise of jurisdiction” which was given to it by congressional enactments, i.e. 28 USC 1331; 42 USC 1983. As the preceding sections make painfully clear, the abrogation of duties by this district court to uphold our federal Bill of Rights has left a citizen, father and civil rights attorney without recourse anywhere given the fatal acts of state courts.

Those acts, taken as a whole, have produced an environment more cognizable in the places where our military are sent to depose tyrants and corrupt regimes. Countless deployments have been justified by human rights violations only to have our service men and women return to comparable violations here at home. They are deprived access to their children and committed to prisons for an inability to make support payments. Government studies continue to report that some 22 veterans commit suicide each day with none to show the number traced to family court abuses. The plaintiff here has literally saved the lives of veterans during his decade of reform efforts across the country and can attest that this number is a major percentage of that daily total.

Despite plaintiff’s laudable objectives, such reform efforts have been grievously blocked by state actors under cloak of judge-made immunities. It is beyond dispute that when our courts effectively shut their doors to the grievances of our people, lawlessness, violence and self-help remedies are the natural outcome. Plaintiff’s complaints were not mere “gripes” arising from a “highly contentious divorce” as this court’s Judge Gary Sharpe flagrantly minimized. They went to the core of our Bill of Rights representing the ideals and ordeals of countless victims similarly rejected by our federal district courts. Such rejections have an unmistakable tendency to incite more violations through perpetrator presumptions of legitimacy, precisely what occurred here.

When our federal courts were created, a major fear among the several states was that the new constitution would create an authoritarian central government that would inevitably suppress the rights of the people. Accordingly, among the six publications of the 85 Federalist Papers devoted principally to the judiciary, a bill of rights, trial by jury, ex post facto laws, bills of attainder and judicial independence were major topics. To assuage that fear, it was urged that federal judges be appointed and granted life tenure with undiminished compensation. [1]

Alexander Hamilton justified this position during debates on constitutional ratification with an opening passage to his Federalist Paper No. 79. It is remarkably pertinent to this case:

“Next to permanency in office, nothing can contribute more to the independence of the judges than a fixed provision for their support. The remark made in relation to the President is equally applicable here. In the general course of human nature, A POWER OVER A MAN’S SUBSISTENCE AMOUNTS TO A POWER OVER HIS WILL. And we can never hope to see realized in practice, the complete separation of the judicial from the legislative power, in any system which leaves the former dependent for pecuniary resources on the occasional grants of the latter.” (capital letter emphasis in the original).

Such pronouncements were at odds with the constitutions of several states. For example, New York had no Bill of Rights unlike today, and its judges were subject to term limits, still in existence. Compensation remains a prerogative of the legislature. The ills of the latter were so pervasive during political gridlocks that aggrieved judges, including a chief judge, filed hybrid actions against the governor and legislature. Known as the Judicial Pay Raise Trilogy, they failed to secure any immediate relief despite a declaratory judgment prosecuted and presided over by the same chief judge. Eventually a compromise was reached where a commission set the pay raises subject to veto by the other two branches, Chief Judge v Governor, 14 NY3d 230 (2010).

Despite the principles of tenure and compensation regarding judicial tenability in our federal and state systems, judges of both failed to countenance the same principles as applied to the viability of liberty in the People they serve, represented here by a model citizen. Somehow those principles incurred a disappearing act when actions were taken to hold members of the judiciary accountable. Plaintiff was stripped of his tenure as an attorney and father on concocted grounds and his “subsistence” was gutted by an indefinite suspension of law licenses. Much more was inflicted to exert a “power over his will,” thereby dictating the relief sought here.

[1] In the first of these publications, Federalist Paper No. 78, Alexander Hamilton wrote: “The standard of behavior for the continuance in office of the judicial magistracy, is certainly one of the most valuable of the modern improvements in the practice of government. In a monarchy it is an excellent barrier to the despotism of the prince; in a republic it is a no less excellent barrier to the encroachments and oppressions of the representative body. And it is the best expedient which can be devised in any government, to secure a steady, upright, and impartial administration of the laws.” This pronouncement found its way into Article III, section 1 of the Constitution.


Coronavirus Whistleblower Ignored in China Like Family Court Whistleblower is being Ignored Here


By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

For over a decade I have been researching, investigating and reporting on a growing epidemic in America’s divorce and family courts. My experience as a civil rights attorney and victimized parent made me ideally qualified to expose this epidemic. It also made me a judicial whistle blower with no legal protection.

Accordingly, the state was able to retaliate with impunity, seizing my income capacities, children, diverse liberties and unblemished credible reputation. It was all designed to convince the public that there was no epidemic, parent alienation syndrome (PAS) was a fiction, and lawyer profits were justified.

This reaction can scarcely be distinguished from the targeting of Dr. Li Wenliang, the whistleblower who warned of the existence and spread of the coronavirus. He was isolated, ridiculed and discredited by the Chinese government in a similar manner.

Sadly Dr. Wenliang made the ultimate sacrifice when he recently succumbed to the virus that he warned about. Like me as a victimized parent, he was the victim of a growing epidemic. And I was nearly killed by it.

This site, Leon, is filled with proof of this. For example, I sponsored the Parent March on Washington, a 3-day event that featured parental advocates and court reformers delivering my report to all members of Congress.

That report was entitled, A Federal Funded Epidemic: Vital Report Justifying a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts. It was completed and delivered long before anyone even knew about the coronavirus.

However, like Dr. Wenliang’s reports, it was ignored, censored and threatened ultimately by a shoot on sight threat of a traffic cop purporting to enforce an unlawful child support warrant. Follow-up lobbying efforts have fallen on deaf ears. Consequently the carnage will grow in the coming months.

In my report, I cited only a few prominent examples of this carnage, i.e. at pp. 10-11:

In countless family court cases, records are falsified and misconduct is concealed or disregarded to protect judicial reputation. Judges are widely deemed to be beyond reproach. Tragedies have there resulted from oversight failures and a lack of criminal prosecutions involving human rights violations under federal law such as the one cited above. Four cases highlight the horrific consequences to parents, veterans, families and law enforcement over the past decade: 

On September 28, 2009, police Investigator Joseph Longo was ordered to pay $1,800 in monthly child support. He answered the same day with a murder- suicide leaving four children without parents. Even the district attorney could not predict this. A $2 million recovery was based on a zone of danger created by city officials as opposed to family court, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (2011) LaDuca, Rage built Longo to murder-suicide, Observer Dispatch, 12/30/09. 

On June 15, 2011, a father and war veteran, Thomas Ball, burned himself alive on the steps of a family court to protest years of abuse and separation from his children. It stemmed from a single incident of slapping his daughter, and he left behind a manifesto on how to firebomb courts. Even after such a horrific death, the ex-wife stubbornly defended herself by complaining that her children’s dad failed to comply with court counselling. This is how demented the process has become, see Mark Arsenault, Dad leaves clues to his desperation, Boston Globe, July 10, 2011. 

On April 4, 2015, Walter Scott, an unarmed father was shot dead five times in the back by a traffic cop while fleeing a support warrant. The shocking murder was videoed by a concealed bystander. Contrary to national hype focused on racism, the victim’s funeral pastor blamed it on draconian child support confinements. Many concluded that the state was now killing for money given the revolving door outcomes. In vain, two reporters warned of this trend, see Robles and Dewan, Skip child support. Go to jail. Lose job. Repeat. New York Times, 4/15/15 at pg. 1.       

On July 30, 2018, a physical therapist with a practice in Manhattan fatally shot his ex-wife, their 6-year old son and current wife in his Astoria (Queens) home. It became the final edict in a protracted custody battle fueled by judicial war games. After a failed Go-Fund-Me effort to pay his lawyer fees, in a page titled “Child Kidnapping,” the abused dad, James Shield, explained, “I had the perfect life a few years ago but it has spiraled out of control,” Moore, Musemeci and Sheehy, Custody battle led dad to family murder suicide, New York Post, July 31, 2018. 

Less transparent are the countless cases swarming beneath these four which can easily explode. Their cause is wrongfully blamed on the parents. The public is duped into believing that an adversarial process yields truth and justice in our courts. That may be true in other forms of litigation, but when children are taken hostage by untethered lawyers, the opposite is true here. Parents commit perjury on an artificial premise that they are protecting their offspring. Sparks convert to forest fires, children emulate the dysfunction, and the perpetrators profit. 

Join us and spread the word regarding upcoming events so that this epidemic can finally be addressed.






Attorney Avanatti Conviction Parallels Abusive Lawyers in Divorce and Family Courts: Don’t let it happen to you!


By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Liberal media darling Attorney Michael Avenatti was convicted yesterday on all counts of a federal indictment involving a major extortion attempt on the Nike retail giant. A similar scheme was derailed when his lawsuit against President Trump involving Stormy Daniels was thrown out in federal court with the client holding a $300,000 plus attorney fee bill from Trump’s lawyers. He still faces two additional indictments.

Avenatti’s abuses can be compared to unscrupulous lawyers in divorce and family courts who, unlike Avenatti, are not being held accountable. They make false promises, inflame needless conflict, alienate parents, use children to extort fees and bankrupt entire families. When the money is gone, so are the lawyers. And yet those lawyers on the bench who remain continue the myth that it’s all in the “best interests of our children.”

For this reason, the Parenting Rights Institute offers divorce and family court candidates and victims a court avoidance program, self-representation material and mediation alternatives. We have exposed corruption and monitored lawyer misconduct. However, of great value to those who require representation is a lawyer search service where we locate the ideal advocate at a fair price in the region where your case is located.

Unlike other services, we then monitor that lawyer or law firm to prevent the kind of abuses that Avenatti almost got away with. We have lawyers, a university professor and marketing experts here who assist us. So don’t get caught in the endless billing cycles and blind searches for your next lawyer. Let the experts to it for you at a great saving over the long run.

Barnstorming in New Hampshire: We Parents are getting noticed !

We got their attention with this banner message on a family SUV parked in front of the entrance to Bernie Sanders’ victory rally on Primary Night

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Well, we covered the main parts of New Hampshire during the presidential primary to bring parental rights into the mainstream of political discussion. We have been ignored or taken for granted as voters for too long, and this year we are going to change that.

A crime bill to make parental alienation a federal offense, a repeal of Title IV-D funding and a Justice Department investigation of human rights violations in family courts are among the concerns we shared with staffers in the field offices of all major candidates, even a session at the Republican headquarters in Concord, the state’s capital.

We delivered copies of our report, Federal Funded Epidemic, along with a two-page summary which will be reviewed by candidate policy leaders. We continued to demand action from Amy Klobuchar who promised a response during our meeting with her this past October in Washington D.C. She has been growing in popularity lately and placed third in the Democrat vote.

We boldly parked a vehicle with a powerful banner message outside the entrance to the Southern New Hampshire University Field House where Bernie Sanders held his victory rally on Primary Night. Our goal was to shift national focus from illegal parents crossing our borders to the rights of American parents to be free of court abuses and parental alienation.

We even managed to gain entry to the media section of the arena to discuss our issues with national news reporters and present them with our material. CNN, New York Times and Boston television stations were all approached. In the end, we had an impact with secondary media interviews that could lead to major media coverage and a long overdue documentary.

Most of the campaign and media staff we confronted were visibly, if not pleasantly surprised to hear from a nationwide parenting group with at least two reporters needing no briefing due to their own ordeals in these courts. We continue to make progress my friends, and at the very least, they knew that America’s parents have arrived. We will no longer be ignored!

It was a costly trip over a period of days and we need fellow court victims and parental advocates to donate to our site at We also need you to make our work viral as we are being highly censored to protect the family court gold mine. Call our office at (315) 380-3420 or me directly at (315) 796-4000 so that we can exchange information and strategies to prevent further carnage in these dysfunctional tribunals.


Media packed into the parking lot at the Bernie Sanders victory rally on Primary Night

It’s Bedlam here at the New Hampshire Primary with Donald Trump attracting more voters than other candidates combined

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Well it’s peaceful applause and excitement everywhere around the Arena here in downtown Manchester, New Hampshire where President Donald Trump kicked off his re-election campaign. Vice President Pence opened the event, and because my arrival was a last minute decision caused by an alienating mother of my children, I could not get access to the inside (sold-out) arena, let alone anywhere near it on the outside.

A 100 pound skinny radical was the only bump on the outside as he ran around spewing Trump vulgarities at the top of his lungs. That was a good thing because it caused undecided locals around me to vote Trump at the polls tomorrow. One voter next to me stated that he would have knocked him out in the day and I agreed.

Like Nancy Pelosi’s backfired debacle on impeachment,if the liberals could keep sending us freaks like this one (probably from a liberal junior college campus), Donald Trump could win all 50 states. They’re already mumbling about more investigations of Trump when they should be investigating family courts and their abuse of Title IV-D funding. Will they ever “get it?”

Let’s face it, Donald Trump is our only hope for passing a federal crime billagainst parental alienation. We must finally reform our antiquated family courts into a sane operation free of entitlement funds that are destroying parent-child relations on a growing scale.

The liberal-socialists would seize our children altogether and brainwash them into the utterly immoral society we are becoming. That’s why we’ll be approaching all campaigns with our message to show why Donald Trump is simply unbeatable. These other candidates are looking out for the so-called rights of illegal aliens more than they are our own families.

Look for our banners on the news Primary Day (Tuesday, February 11, 2020). Call me direct at (315) 796-4000 if you can help us out in this vital mission for the sake of all American families!





To All Candidates For President at the New Hampshire Primary: We Need a Crime Bill Against Parental Alienation in Family Courts Funded by Congress

Dr. Leon Koziol, pictured here next to presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar with fellow parenting advocates in her senate office ion Washington. She has yet to respond to our report hand-delivered to her at the time of our meeting four months ago.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

At our 3-day event, Parent March on Washington, held on May 1-3, 2019, aggrieved parents from across the country converged on our federal government to demand reform in our antiquated family courts. These courts are funded by Congress through incentive funds known as Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.

Billions of tax dollars are being wasted on grants which reward the states and its family courts based on the size and number of support orders issued and satisfied by a white collar army of state collection agents. This, in turn, creates an obvious systemic bias against non-custodial parents in violation of due process.

For states to receive such funds, parents otherwise working together to raise their children in separated households are required to name a “custodial parent.” This predictably leads to escalating controversy to the delight of unscrupulous divorce lawyers. Ultimately good moms and dads are alienated from their children in a manner far more hideous than the separation of those illegally crossing our borders.

This growing crisis is explained in our report, Federal Funded Epidemic, delivered to all member offices in Congress. To date they have remained aloof from this crisis without so much as a phone call in response. Accordingly, a second march is planned for June, 2020 to focus on electing a president and Congress truly responsive to parental rights.

Our quest this year begins with the New Hampshire Primary where we will be confronting candidates like Amy Klobuchar to hold her accountable for a failed promise to respond to our report hand-delivered to her in October, 2019 in her Senate office in Washington.

Over the years, the federal government has criminalized parents unable to pay inflated child support orders caused by these funding incentives. It has led to such draconian laws as the Parent Punishment Act championed by the Clinton Administration which makes it a federal crime for a non-custodial parent to take up residency in another state with a support obligation in excess of $5,000.

Such a “criminal” can be sentenced for up to seven years, yes 7 years, as warned in boldface capital letters on support violation petitions in New York. Arresting and confining parents to a human cage on nothing more than a money debt is a human rights violation.

This revolving door prison crisis led to the police murder of Walter Scott in South Carolina on April 4, 2015, an African-American father shot dead in the back five times, unarmed, while fleeing a support warrant at a traffic stop. Such arrests can occur even if the debtor is seeking better employment to pay those debts.

Yet nothing is done on the other side of this equation regarding custodial parents who maliciously alienate children from support debtors. It is a serious psychotic condition resulting in veteran and parent suicides and domestic murder. Our federal government is actually funding the destruction of parent-child relationships.

If Congress is disinterested in saving tax dollars and holding abusive family judges accountable for their war on parents, a crime bill must be drafted to make parent alienation a federal offense. We can call it the Kelly Hawse crime bill after one of the most horrific parent alienators in America today.

18th Birthday Message to a Daughter Harmed by an Alienating Parent

Honor America Parade in Rome, New York where my daughter proudly displayed an American flag. It was  during my campaign for state senate prior to a hate campaign by the state’s “custodial parent” and witch hunt in retaliation for my crusade against a corrupt court system

By  Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

The following text message was sent to the cell phone of Kelly Hawse-Koziol at 11:45 pm on the 18th birthday of my eldest daughter. I have no number to either of my daughters. I doubt that this alienating parent shared it with the one it was intended to reach.

Happy 18th Birthday Kristen!

Since you were born I always wanted to do something special with you on this day. But like so many other events I was prevented from experiencing in your life and that of your sister, your mother got in the way without cause of any kind except that of replacing me for money and status, and harming me when her agendas failed.

Someday when you can understand what happened to your loving dad, you will realize what your mom truly did to destroy our once wonderful father-daughter relationships:

Disney World, your first experiences with the ocean at Cocoa Beach, swimming behind our family boat at “Mermaid Island” as you and Cassandra came to call it, that Christmas tradition of carrying the two of you out across the starlit winter sky in our front yard at that special moment in the Polar Express movie, all the Harry Potter movies you explained to me with great enthusiasm, fireside dancing with fellow kids at the Sagamore, stories and quizzes you enjoyed during our trips to so many exciting places, the challenges of climbing the gauntlet at Destiny Mall, our many parades and field day carnivals afterwards during my campaigns you enjoyed so thoroughly, the carriage ride through Times Square, Macy’s Day Parade and your spontaneous performances in Central Park in front of musicians which attracted so much attention. And we certainly can’t forget your first parasail rides at our summer place, Lake George, where everyone treated you like celebrities.

It’s such a long list I would loved to have shared with you today at dinner which I asked your mom so vigorously to facilitate. But like everything that was good in our lives, your mom did everything she could to destroy it for no logical reason at all. I never once harmed either of you, and despite a tantrum or two over your mom’s anal monitoring of me since our separation in 2004, I hung in there as best I could against a court system bent on punishing your dad for exercising his God given rights. The sacrifices I made are now folklore among similarly persecuted parents across the country, some of which are movie stars, famous athletes, university professors, prominent doctors and professionals.

Sadly I will not be able to give you that special gift I was hoping for today and I will certainly not do so by phone or Grandma Hawse who burned her home down with neglected candles. If your mom is honest for once in her war on dad, she will admit to my lawyer assistance which got Grandma a nice fire insurance settlement without the usual one-third taken out for fees. So much of this is forgotten or tortured in your mom’s endless quest for revenge. She wants to make sure that her damage to our relationship is lifelong.

I had no intention of getting into any of this with you had you driven over to a restaurant of your choice for a birthday dinner as I requested. At first your mom was receptive when she contacted me for a “normal divorced family” environment, but typical of her history of provocative behavior, she reneged and returned us to the battle she started ignorantly and pointlessly in 2006 leading to the “embarrassing” fiasco she caused today. No one in the sane parenting world can understand her spiteful behavior. She had so many opportunities to end this but it’s obvious today that she enjoys the drama into eternity.

You are an adult now facing big challenges in the sick world we live in. That’s why I must do what I need to do next which could have been so easily avoided. You girls are innocent victims of a corrupt court system which has become my destiny to expose and reform. It’s something of which you should be proud but prevented from feeling due to the 100% domination by a vicious parent alienator. What I do next may bring a lot of publicity to our ordeal as I travel to the New Hampshire Primary and Washington D.C. to secure overdue reforms, but your mom has, once again, given me no choice.

All I wanted was a nice birthday dinner, free of the past, where we could be nostalgic on the good times and share plans on an exciting future. Someday it is my hope that you will learn the other side and realize just how much I sacrificed to remain in your lives. I will always be there for you and love you as a dad (not a non-custodial parent) no matter the brainwashing championed by your “custodial parent.”

It’s nearing midnight, so it’s safe to assume I will not even receive the phone call I asked for on this special day. What kind of a “mother” does this with so many girls and guys your age who would have loved and begged to have a dad like me.

Happy Birthday Kristen. The years went by too fast.

Love always,

Dad (Leon Koziol)


Special Note to my 6,209 followers: I will be giving updates regarding my trip to the New Hampshire Primary and the message I intend to bring to our Democrat candidates for president. Please share this post as our website has been highly censored. Prior to my post regarding mandatory psychiatric evaluations for family judge candidates (i.e. my pedophile custody judge Bryan Hedges), I would receive over 2,000 shares on a single release. Today, I’m lucky to receive 10. I am asking for a federal investigation into what is surely a grave censorship of these vital public messages.

On a stranger note, as I read the above text message on my i-phone to type it into my home computer, the paragraphing arose automatically without any prompting on my part, i.e. a single hit on the “enter” key produced single spaces in the body of each paragraph, and the same single hit produced an automatic double space each time I came to the end of a paragraph, i.e. I never had to hit the “enter” key twice.

This continued throughout the entire post to my amazement, as if the computer was reading my mind. There was no connection between my phone and the computer or correction function since paragraphing is not a logical command on this type of transfer activity or and computer program that I am aware of. If you’re a tech expert, I would love to receive your theory or explanation. Call me at (315) 796-4000 or e-mail at
