The Center For Custody Justice was founded by diverse professionals after their exhaustive journeys through family court.
Upon analyzing the Patterns and Practices utilized in the Child Custody Cottage Industry to “Churn The Accounts” the desire to create an agency focused on Restoring, Recovering and Reunifying family court victims was conceived.
CCJ does NOT “prove” nor attempt to prove one parent is better than the other. We simply look for the Judicial/ Legal Error that initiated the Wrongful Termination and/or Parental Alienation.
Center For Custody Justice, L3C began non-profit work in 2009 and officially opened its doors as a business in April 2018. We bring an exceptional level of experience, enthusiasm, dedication, and informed perspectives that make our organization the holistic solution for Child Custody Court clients.
