As many followers know, I have just released my latest book on the subject of divorce and family court corruption with sales growing by the hour. After more than ten years of whistleblowing, reform efforts and highly informative posts at http://www.leonkoziol.com, countless parents still prefer court battles over cooperation, mediation and common sense.
My book, Whistleblower in Paris, was therefore published after extensive supporting research and case studies to counter this dangerous trend. It provides a valuable overview of the court process with ways and reasons to avoid court costs. Creative metaphors are employed as a wake-up call for a better outcome, bringing to mind one caller who stated that he could not afford our educational DVD or book on this site only to advise hours later of $10,000 he had for any lawyer referral I could provide.
Here is one such metaphor from an excerpt of my book to alert you to the realities you face in these courts with or without a lawyer referral (chapter 10 entitled “Shark Attack” at pg. 147):
These were not courts of law, they were shark tanks. Wherever family issues could be concocted, there you’d see the feeding frenzy. In all my years on both sides of this tank I could never understand how so many intelligent parents could plunge headlong into these unholy waters only to fall victim over and over again. Even my reform allies continued to pay into this system.
They were the mammals of Seal Island waddling into the treacherous waters off South Africa, endeavoring to cross False Bay only to be scarfed up by great whites. But these court predators were nothing like the impressive sharks, they were more like the mangy buzzards of a dried-up swamp plucking away at a carcass known as divorce.
Such were the ugly thoughts cast to the wind behind me as I passed gas along with it while racing to a destiny I could never have imagined when passing my bar exam so many years ago. And I suppose that’s what made this whole ordeal so exciting in a sick sort of way. I could not envision where the next turn on my fateful journey might take me. Only months ago I was being threatened with contempt in snow country. Today I was riding aimlessly in a tropical paradise.
