Meanwhile Fathers in Debtor Prisons Give us Distinction as Most Imprisoned Nation in the World!
So you’d rather watch tournament games and go bowling than support a “We Are Fathers” campaign for justice and equality. Well that’s your choice, it’s a free country, in theory anyway. But you should know that countless lawyers, child experts and bureaucrats are cheering you on because they profit from all this apathy and a misguided sense of priorities.
Fathers rights and court reform have failed time and again because the victims are complaining about the symptoms, they’re only interested in their personal war stories, and they would rather pay the lawyers who grow their problems than contribute to reform entities like this one committed to everyone’s benefit. In short, today’s fathers are not shooting straight, if at all, even when the target is right in front of them.
That target is a federal support law which must be repealed or modified to comport with present day realities. It means we must focus our efforts at the nation’s capital. Instead victims have come to some bizarre conclusion that someone else will travel there, do all the work and pay for it. They think that five guys with signs in front of a local court might influence reform.
As our report, “We Are Fathers” explains, the support standards law under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act rewards the states based on the number and magnitude of support orders manufactured in their domestic relations courts. Put another way, all judges presiding over support cases benefit from higher awards, making them inherently biased under the same federal law. It’s all part of a trillion dollar child control industry.
To keep the federal money flowing, competing states must retain the antiquated custody scheme as opposed to shared parenting. This in turn benefits lawyers and third parties who thrive on the conflicts naturally inflamed by an unjust and unequal parenting system.
Let’s face it , when was the last time you heard of a scorned mother imprisoned for perjury or false reports? Such a precedent would lead to less conflict and less money for lawyers. Meanwhile fathers are being thrown into prison every day without the commission of any crime simply because of the unrealistic support orders made through biased judges.
They’ll tell you it’s all for uniformity sake, that the state knows best how to raise your children, but we know it’s all about the money. If you haven’t learned that by now, keep watching the balls go round and round while feminists next door at the government arenas are rallying for more laws you don’t know about.
Census Bureau reports continue to show that 85% of all parents paying support are fathers. Moreover, nearly 100% of all litigants committed to debtor prisons for back support are men, adding to our dubious distinction as the most imprisoned population in the free world. Minorities and veterans suffer a higher rate of abuse but hey, who’s counting. This gold mine is so lucrative that judges will set aside the Constitution to keep the unequal treatment in place.
So next time you’re watching a tournament game, don’t forget to have a buyer for your tickets when a sheriff serves you with a support petition or arrest warrant. In an upcoming post we’ll tell you about a neuro-surgeon in Manhattan who spent over $4.5 million fighting false allegations only to lose free contact with his children while facing potential incarceration. With this economy, you can easily become the next victim.
As we’ve said repeatedly, no amount of money is enough in these courts. They’ll be happy to take your children’s college funds to feed the greed. So please support this vital cause today. Make a donation at Leon Koziol.com and help recruit participants for our “Fatherless Day” rally at the Supreme Court on June 19th. Because they’re your children too.

Fatherless Friday, June 19th, Set for Rally at Supreme Court
It used to be that discrimination was legal only in states south of the Mason-Dixon border, but after completing our fathers rights meetings this week in Nashville, we have concluded that discrimination is now legal on both sides of that line.
On an increasing scale each year fathers are being remanded to the role of visitors or virtual parents in their children’s lives simply because of their male birth status. They are then subjected to indentured service to scorned adversaries known as custodial parents ultimately becoming legal sub-class citizens with the specter of debtor prisons hanging over their heads.
Indeed all manner of constitutional protection has been set aside under a judge made law dating back to feudal England known as equity power. Under this authority fathers can be targeted as criminals simply because they have relocated to other states in search of employment. The vast majority of fathers cannot possibly know that they are considered criminals due to a support debt treated as a tax by our government.
The situation today is completely out of control because fathers are allowing it. They would rather go bowling or watch tournament games than get personally involved in a long overdue reform effort. Not a single one to date has stepped up to the plate to recruit participants at a rally in Washington on fatherless day, June 19th.
For those of you unfamiliar with the fatherless day tradition, it is the annual Friday before Fathers’ Day which equal rights advocates have set aside to conduct nationwide rallies against Family Court abuses at courthouses and state capitals across the country. Most Americans are unaware of this tradition because the media has suppressed it and our government has exploited discrimination for profit. It simply does not fit into the civil rights categories defined by liberals and feminists.
But the reality is that father discrimination is at the root of social ills in this nation. Here in Nashville we have decided to do something about it. A series of posts at Leon Koziol. com describes a We Are Fathers campaign to end the last bastion of legal discrimination remaining unchecked in America today.
But for this campaign to succeed, all concerned people must get involved. Reform is not free and it won’t be done by your neighbor or some stranger. These are your children too and they rely on your donations and personal recruitment efforts. Otherwise, like all prior reform efforts, it will suffer a quick death.

Custody mayhem in California could have been avoided by reform litigation being pursued by parental rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D.
Regrettably, the kind of violence evidenced by this incident could have been prevented through the efforts of parental rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D., and his test cases currently being reviewed by the United States Supreme Court and federal appeals court in New York City. This latest incident as predicted, was described in a post on his website www.leonkoziol.com only several days ago, appearing on October 10, 2011.
In a very ironic and timely twist on this, Mr. Koziol’s case will be conferenced by the Justices of the United States Supreme Court tomorrow, October 14, 2011, for a possible precedent setting decision. On the other case in New York City, the United States Justice Department, New York Attorney General and defense firms, have secured extension for their briefs and arguments.
For a fuller description of Mr. Koziol’s efforts to reform laws that harm parent-child relationships, please visit: www.leonkoziol.com. Leon Koziol is available for commentary regarding this current news story and pending litigation. He can be reached at (315) 796-4000. We are also asking our regular followers to please share this story with regional and national media connections.
As stated in previous posts, resources have dwindled to nothing in connection with our current cases. We are therefore seeking contributions from all concerned. Such cases would cost individual litigants or groups hundreds of thousands in competent fees and litigation expense. It is therefore crucial for all of our supporters to join us in this effort. A pay pal account has been set up to accept your donation. No matter how great or small it may be, every amount helps. Please consider this using the method provided below or by mail to: Parenting Rights Institute; 1518 Genesee Street; Utica, New York 13502. Once again, we would like to thank all of you for your help.

U. S. Justice Department, defense firms and New York Attorney General seek extensions to file briefs in parenting rights case being heard in federal appeals court in New York City.
The U.S. Justice Department has weighed in on the appeal brought by constitutional rights advocate Leon Koziol in New York City. It is representing Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services in Washington D.C. who was named as a defendant. The case seeks to promote shared parenting through a precedent setting decision which strikes down a scheme of federal and state laws that discriminate against fathers and non-custodial mothers in divorce, custody and support proceedings.
The complete brief was released publicly on this site, www.leonkoziol.com, on September 22, 2011, shortly after its filing. It addresses a full range of parenting rights routinely infringed in our state domestic relations courts. Like the equal rights vindicated by Brown v Board of Education, but unlike the fundamental rights pursued in Roe v Wade, this appeal is designed to promote family values in separated parental settings. If successful, it will provide a weapon for parents everywhere to resist draconian support orders and abusive court processes.
Significantly, U.S. attorneys have joined the New York Attorney General and law firms representing other defendants in seeking extensions to file their response briefs into December, 2011, or the maximum period allowed by law. Mr. Koziol has opposed those requests on grounds that he was able to complete his own brief in less than one week while filing motions, rule statements, record and appendix in a lesser period of time without office staff or support. Evidently this case, years in the works, is proving to have merit or cause for concern.
Unfortunately, as related in our last post, the financial burden inflicted by such delays is having devastating impacts upon Leon’s continuing ability to maintain this litigation. Simply put, it is a case which seeks a proper remedy in lieu of a constitutional amendment in the state legislatures and Congress that could take decades to produce. To our knowledge, only the State of Louisiana has endorsed such an amendment. On the positive side, the current briefing delay opens the door for persons or groups to join the case or provide their input on the arguments.
For our regular followers, input can be made by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. However you must first read and digest the brief referenced in our last post. In the coming weeks, you will be given the opportunity for virtual participation in our profound litigation by keyboard from your very own homes. Updates on this case and others being pursued by Mr. Koziol will follow. The referenced requests by government attorneys and defense firms may be viewed directly through the links found on our site. In the meantime, we would like to thank our early donors as we continue to urge your support behind this vital cause. Even if you are not currently impacted, the damage caused by these socialist welfare laws is affecting the health, safety, productivity, education and family heritage of an entire nation. Kindly pass this on.

The volunteer staff of Leon Koziol.Com wishes to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the family of Thomas J. Ball as we were just informed that he took his own life in front of a family court building in New England.
Here is a sad story that came to our attention by one of our many nationwide followers: http://freekeene.com/2011/06/16/thomas-james-ball-self-immolated-in-protest-of-the-justice-system/
We would encourage anyone reading this blog who may be in contact with the family to share Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol, J.D.’s “National Father’s Day Message” found at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/57694359/National-Father-s-Day-Message-Complaint . It’s important the family know that Mr. Koziol is working diligently within the system to secure long overdue reform in domestic relations matters given the related escalation of violence. A more ominous sign may exist here in our own small community in Upstate, NY, where a number of of law enforcement officers were victimized both on duty and off duty by domestic relations abuses.
According to research approximately 330 people commit suicide monthly in the U.S. in response to the way family courts and CPS handle divorce, domestic violence and child support. The study points out that the suicide rate for divorced men is 9.94 times higher than the suicide rate for divorced women.

RE: PARENTING RIGHTS CONVENTION REPORT LITIGATION UPDATE
DATE: JUNE 10, 2011
As promised at our national Parenting Rights Convention held in upstate New York on April 15-17, 2011, a Report has now been completed for review by attendees, supporters and various government agencies. Issued in the form of a formal “Complaint” filed this morning with the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct, copies are being furnished to the U.S. Justice Department, United Nations, legislative leaders and various human rights organizations. We expect to complete this process on June 17, 2011 in Washington D.C. (Father’s Day weekend).
A copy of the 25 page “Complaint” is available for viewing at www.leonkoziol.com. Copies are also being sent to our followers. It incorporates the testimony and contributions of those who attended the April convention. However, names and personal details were excluded to protect the participants from retaliation in their private litigation. Instead civil rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D. employed his own experiences with references and recommendations common to “similarly situated parents”. The Complaint easily shows why reform is not going to occur from within.
This “Complaint” has immense practical value as a free information product for those victimized by domestic relations courts around the country. We parents are experiencing an epidemic in state control practices over our private affairs and exploitation of innocent children for profit. This document should be shared everywhere as a personal defense resource. It can be used to better understand the Family Court environment and as a tool for evaluating the performance of costly legal representation. In addition, it may serve as a background piece for seminars and public assemblies given the complex nature of these court processes. If this Complaint can save a parent-child relationship from abuse or demise, it will be well worth the sacrifice made by its author and sponsor. You may contact Mr. Koziol personally for this purpose at (315) 796-4000.
On a related note, a 45 page opinion was handed down in federal court in a case filed by Leon Koziol on behalf of “parents similarly situated” in “Parent v State” and its consolidated member case “Koziol v Lippman”. Originally filed on February 26, 2009, this challenge to abusive custody and support laws was held up for two years on a court issued ruling which raised the Rooker-Feldman doctrine as a bar to federal court jurisdiction. Younger abstention was also raised, among other obstacles, by the many law firms defending this action.
Although the claims were dismissed, the jurisdiction obstacles were overcome. Unlike countless other challenges around the country, this court took jurisdiction over the state court issues, giving others a precedent for accessing federal court to raise constitutional questions. The adverse components of this ruling are now being appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York City. A expedited motion for exigent relief will be filed there at the Foley Square courthouse on Friday, June 17, 2011. We will keep you informed as you remain cognizant of the uphill battle we face. To put this in perspective, father’s rights cases feature a 100% failure rate in our nation’s history. Then, in the usual manner, our politicians wonder why we face so much father absence and moral decline in Father’s Day speeches.
