Complaint Details:
My name is Claudine Dombrowski, I have one daughter Rikki who will be 18 in December 2012. We are victims of Judicial Corruption in Topeka, Kansas. Our Case leads the suit filed at the (IACHR) Inter American Commission on Human Rights (Dombrowski et el v US 2007) on behalf of all Mothers Nationwide for the practice and policies of US courts routinely granting child custody to abusers and pedophiles when Battered Mothers file for divorce. Petition can be viewed in its entirety on the Stop Family Violence website. www.stopfamilyviolence.org/pages/308

I am a US Army Veteran, Co-founder & webmaster for American Mothers Political Party. In 2006, I was placed on the Kansas Secretary of State’s, Address Confidentiality Program - Safe At Home for Victims of Domestic Violence. I was a psychiatric nurse for thirteen years with the State of Kansas and the Veterans Administration, Until December 2000 when I was placed on 100% physical disability related to the violence inflicted by the batterer.

I, like many Battered mothers thought that I had the right to be free from Violence. I was wrong. Due to both the Criminal and Family Court Failures. Having been beaten with crowbars, thrown out of moving vehicles, have had both wrists and several ribs broken, thrown through plate glass windows, tied up, raped, sodomized then left in a crawl space for several days. Just to name a few of the Criminal Assaults-by an already 8 time criminally convicted perpetrator to include but not limited to: (Battery, Attempted Battery, Battery of a Law Enforcement Officer, Obstruction of Legal Process, Possession of Marijuana, Violation of Open Container law, Violation of Restraining Orders, Domestic Violence and Terroristic Death threats)

Even with 8 criminal convictions, the perpetrator filed for custody of my child in family court and after being ‘beaten’ with a crow bar to which he admits, but was never charged, but in fact was given early release from probation for ‘good behavior’ and Without motion from any party the Judge simply on his own issued an 11 page Order by ‘snail mail’ giving complete custody of my daughter to an admitted and convicted batterer. I was immediately placed in supervised visits after a complete suspension of any contact with my daughter. The past 13 years I have had minimal contact w my child and absolutely no contact at all this past 3 years. Due to the ‘therapeutic jurisprudence’ access to justice – deniers, whom advocate for the perpetrator, who state; ‘that is not in the best interest of the child to know that her father is a batterer,’ and instead of protecting mother and child, all contact was to be eliminated between myself and my child.

I last held my daughter 13 years ago.

The Criminal Courts have failed to offer to myself and my daughter equal protection under the law, failed to use simple common sense in giving a victims child to the admitted and convicted perpetrator.

The complete ‘Failure of Justice’ for myself and for my daughter, in criminal and in family court, our denial of any ‘Access to Justice’ is the current state of the Courts, the lawyers and Mental Health so called experts known as Therapeutic Jurisprudence - a lucrative business that denies access to justice to society’s most vulnerable victims, battered mothers and their children and only for profit. It’s monetary, it’s all about the money and it can be prevented.
Eliminate all Therapeutic jurisprudence –do-gooders-Psychologists, Gal’s, case managers, return to Rule of Law not the Rule of man.

The lesson is clear – do not report abuse. Or never see your child again.
