Finally someone has dared to speak the truth of what happens in the secret family law courts.

So many of us once thought it was only us and then on reading this book - we found there were thousands of us all telling a similar truth of how prejudice and perjury are the norm in the dark recesses of so called courts of law.

In this book you will discover the truth denied to you because of the gagging orders etc placed upon many innocent people who enter the court for divorce or being taken to court on made up charges of abuse.

Prepare yourself to be shocked, educated in truth and inspired to carry the torch of light into these dark recesses and replace law with justice.

This book exposes what the secret UK Family Courts get up to, but unfortunately only in 'Public Law' cases (i.e, care/adoption hearings). The private law cases though (Residence, Contact) are just as bad.

I bought FAMILY COURT HELL by Mark Harris which does the same (or better) exposure of secret courts in his private law case-naming & shaming a variety of Judges, Child Psychiatrists along the way. Both are a must read if you have ever come up against the corruption of secret family courts.

Read both an you see just why these appalling courts must be opened to public accountability.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Whatever its faults, and they are many, this book deserves to be read by anyone who cares at all about what we are doing to children in this country. This self-published book is crying out for an editor - who could have reduced its length by half and doubled its impact, removed a kilogram of exclamation marks, and tidied up the idiosyncratic punctuation and italicisation generally. The style is quaint and irritating: Jack Frost's wife is always Mrs. Frost; officials are always given their full titles however many times we have met them before, Judge Nicholas Crichton is always Crighton, and so on. There are also some glaring errors: a Gillick Competent child does not have to be over 12, for example.

This book tells the tale of Frost's own experiences in the family courts and then opens up to include other stories and to discuss the courts in general and in particular the paralysing secrecy under which they operate, and the consequent dearth of accountability. If you have not experienced the family courts first hand, then it really has to be read to be believed; the sickening and self-serving manner in which court officials, paediatricians and social workers behave is beyond imagining. Frost ends with an analysis of the recent consultation exercise by the Department of Constitutional Affairs on family court transparency, and sadly his conclusions match my own: it was an exercise in shameful dishonesty and spin, intended to extend, not reduce the secrecy.

I disagree with Jack Frost on one issue and it is a critical one. His book is concerned only with public law cases, that is: cases in which the social services take children away from their parents and into care, or offer them for adoption.
