Letter to Legislators from Judith Brumbaugh

Dear Legislator,

Thirty million marriages have ended in divorce--what an astonishingly sad statistic! This number doesn't even come close to providing an accurate reflection of the splintering of the American family that has occurred as a result of our nation's No-fault Divorce laws. Millions have suffered and continue to suffer emotional heartache and financial hardship in the wake of the many unexpected, frequently unreported, and egregious abuses of justice in our nation's courtrooms. Many defendant spouses, compelled into court against their will, have been denied equal representation and deprived of equal and impartial justice.

No-fault was designed to avoid the assigning of fault in a divorce action with the hope that bitterness and hostility between the parties would be reduced, perjury would be curtailed, and there would be an honoring of the law and its processes during the No-fault divorce proceedings. But sadly, that is not what has happened.

Attorney J. Shelby Sharpe is an endorser of the enclosed book, Judge, Please Don’t Strike That Gavel. . . On My Marriage. As a lawyer with more than 40 years of litigation experience involving federal and state constitutional issues, he has written: "No-fault Divorce is the most devastating event that has ever occurred in American history by any measurement. This book describes those consequences and explains why all No-fault Divorce laws should be repealed." Attorney Sharpe further states, "No-fault Divorce is the only claim recognized in the state courts of the United States where the due process clause for protecting a fundamental right (which marriage has been found to be by the United States Supreme Court) is ignored and patently disregarded."

Attorney Kelly M. Dodd, another endorser of this book, noted the author's analogies between the no-fault divorce and the criminal justice systems: "It's true that criminals have more rights and are afforded more due process than divorce respondents."

Dr. Rice, Professor Emeritus, Notre Dame Law School adds: "This first-person account of the operation of the divorce machine should motivate us to change the legal system. . . ."

I hope that you will invest time to read Judge, Please Don't Strike That Gavel. . . On My Marriage, a book that highlights the heartrending realities that families endure as they are forced to board the run-away train called No-fault Divorce. I also hope that after reading this informative, insightful book, you will recognize that our nation desperately needs measures to rectify the travesty of justice known as No-fault Divorce and that you will use your power and influence to help bring about changes to our nation's inequitable divorce laws!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Judith A. Brumbaugh
Author, Judge, Please Don’t Strike
That Gavel. . . On My Marriage
