Coercive Controllers use the Courts to continue a reign of terror-

Unlike cookies when the timer goes off their done...with coercive controllers using courts to continue conflict...it never ends.  With entitled and monied litigants they can keep the case in court for years even decades, and with the help of federal funding and incentives court professionals get rich off the misery of American families while destroying our children's lives for profit

According to the  YWCA Vancouver "Court-Related Abuse and Harassment:  Leaving an abuser can be harder than staying"

Court-Related Abuse and Harassment: Leaving an Abuser can be Harder than Staying

"Perpetrators may use litigation as a form of ongoing control and harassment. The family court litigation process can become a tool for batterers to continue their abusive behaviour in a new forum (Jaffe et al., 2003a). Litigation exacts a high emotional and financial price for abused women already overwhelmed with the aftermath of a violent relationship.

Some authors have suggested that some batterers have the presentation and social skills to present themselves positively in court and convince assessors and judges to award them custody (Bowermaster & Johnson, 1998; Zorza, 1995). In many cases, perpetrators are self- represented, heightening the possibilities for abuse through berating a former partner in cross-examination."
