One glaring statistic is that 50% of American marriages end in divorce.

At a time when couples are most vulnerable emotionally, they must make decisions with long-range implications about financial matters, living arrangements, jobs, and property. A new normalcy must be molded and formed, hammered and forged, for everyone involved--most notably, the children.

Each year, Indiana's Child Protective Services division takes thousands of children away from parents accused of abusing or neglecting them.

But what happens when the system fails to protect those children once they are in state care- The Eyewitness News Investigators uncovered alarming information about how the system sometimes goes wrong. In one case, a young boy paid with his life. And children being victimized while in state care is not an isolated problem. In fact, we found the state is above the federal limit for cases of abuse and neglect in foster homes. It's a failure to protect that is putting children at risk.

But lawmakers in Nebraska and 12 other states have made it possible for victims to keep their mailing address secret.

Lynn Pollick was stunned when the man accused of sexually assaulting her teenage daughter, after facing trial and conviction, filed an appeal based on a technicality and was set free on bail.

The Pollicks took a stand, insisting on a change in the law that would keep convicted child molesters behind bars. And they scored a big victory last week in the state House of Representatives when lawmakers voted 105-0 in favor of legislation that would deny bail to those convicted of sexually assaulting a minor while an appeal was pending.

Teaming Social Workers with Officers urged

Across the nation, social workers typically respond, bringing their training in family crises to the scene. They go with police officers, who back them up, providing protection in situations that can quickly turn explosive.<br><br>Yet in Santa Clara County, more than half the time, police officers answer these calls alone. When an officer knocks at the door, frightened children see a police uniform, the handcuffs, gun and nightstick. If they must leave home, they ride to the children's shelter in a squad car with a metal divider and a dispatcher's voice crackling over the radio.

Home School Group Warns of Growing Trend to Try to Link Homeschooling to Abuse

Carla Katz, the president of the Communications Workers of America, a union representing social workers in New Jersey, testified at the hearing. In her remarks, Katz stated the following: "Home schooling creates gaps. Nearly 20% of all abuse cases are reported by schools. When children are outside the school system, extra protections are critical. There are no home schooling regulations that would require homeschooled children to see anyone from the public education system. There is no cross-referencing with the Department of Education to look for children who are in the 'system' but have not been seen by anyone."

Child Support Enforcement laws are anti-American and an act of Terrorism against Americans

Communism is alive and well and it runs the United States of Amerika. I have been involved in the research of child support and welfare reform for years and have researched a number of very astute scientists, economists, psychologists, legal professionals, politicians and many others.

An 8-year-old Mount Clemens boy apparently will become the youngest county resident ever to get court-ordered counseling and rehabilitation for sex offenders under a recent plea deal and sentence agreement in court.

Meanwhile, officials say, the effort continues to build a case that his alleged attack upon female classmates at Alexander Macomb Elementary School may be the result of some unhealthy influence by a former father figure in his home.

Too often, fosterers ignore the threat of false accusations until its too late.

With the promise of government funding and the goal of helping a child, they accept the challenge of providing housing for state custody kids. When they start, most don't realize this decision can lead to personal heartache, financial ruin, and for some, even imprisonment.<br><br>About twelve years ago employees of the California Department of Social Services' legal division discovered a "secret room" in the Los Angeles child welfare office. It contained fifteen file cabinets with about 3000 files - each one describing allegations and incidents of child abuse in foster-incarceration and other state custody facilities.
