Abolish Alimony Groups

There are a lot of support groups involved with child-support and custodial rights activities. However, there are almost none who are fighting to abolish the present alimony laws.Foremost in the groups leading the charge against the statues regulating dissolutions is the Alliance For Freedom From Alimony, Inc. (Alliance) along with their legal arm The Center For Liberty And Privacy (CFLAP). (See their websites on the menu.)

Abolish is essentially the chronicles of one person’s crusade against the unjust alimony statutes and gives a timeline of all the documents filed in that case. He is not an attorney and does not have a legal background. Everything he has accomplished has been a result of his own research efforts and with the guidance of the two sites mentioned above.

* Here a story about an attorney filing bankruptcy to avoid paying alimony. It should be a good story to follow.

* You'd never know domestic abuse hurts men also. A 1998 Department of Justice study reported that of 2.3 million victims of domestic violence, 36 percent or 835,000 are men. Other studies have found that women use violence in relationships as often or more frequently than men do.

* Alimony isn’t enough for some spouses. Here a man says his mother's greed drove their plot to end a marriage and gain a fortune.

* Absurdistan in America by Stephen Baskerville. He has many thought provoking articles on alimony, child-support and government intervention in the family.

* Here’s a great inexpensive “Legal Research” reference book that will take the mystique out of the terms used in case law, legal pleadings, motions, etc. It tells you what they all mean and how to find what you need. It helped me immensely. If you are going to be Pro Se, this is one of the books you definitely must have.

* The constitutions, statutes, judicial opinions, and regulations for the fifty states, plus D.C., and the U.S. territories and affiliated jurisdictions.
