Family Court Consumers begin posting on Youtube

New Zealand Family Court Consumers begin posting digital audio files to Youtube.

Service Consumers of the New Zealand Family Court have now begun covertly digitally recording Lawyers meetings, Counselling sessions, mediation sittings, and even Court room procedures, and uploading them to Youtube.

Convenor of www.nzfamilycourt.com Steve Taylor said that this was an overdue exercise in transparency, and that the practice would only grow over time.

“When an organisation such as the New Zealand Family Court acts in the manner of a corporate cult, deliberately insulating its people and practices from the public eye, and willingly practicing gross abuse of process and the law, Family Court Consumers harmed by this experience are eventually going to speak out publically, just as ex-cult members and families eventually speak out publically” said Mr Taylor.

“While the new Family Court reforms coming into effect at the end of March are a welcome step in the right direction, there is still no official opportunity for the Consumers voice or complaint to be heard outside of the vacuum-sealed industry that is the New Zealand Family Court”.

“With the host of technology options available now via smart phone and covert digital data capture, there won’t be a Family Court Lawyer, Counsellor, Psychologist, Mediator, or Judge in the country that can stop motivated Family Court Consumers from recording their interactions with them, which is an entirely legal and appropriate action to take in the circumstances, as the information actually belongs not to the Family Court, but to the Consumer” said Mr Taylor.

“In a legal setting where “the balance of probabilities” and “formed belief” (as opposed to evidence) are the only requirements to remove children from their families, it is vital that Family Court Consumers collect their own evidence of just what actually occurs in their interaction with state-sanctioned professionals, so that they can legitimately defend themselves against what are often manufactured and untrue claims upon them, by some of these same legal professionals”.
