RaiseYourRights.org is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving California parents jury trial rights when summoned into a family or juvenile dependency court. Our goals are to end all false allegations, to promote settlement, and to limit unwarranted governmental interference in families by giving parents the Constitutional layer of protection of jury trial rights.
Civil rights attorney, Shawn McMillan, Esq on changing the law to allow parents jury trial rights in California's family and juvenile dependency courts. In order to protect the fundamental right of a parent to keep custody, aka legal rights, of their own child. Help us change family courts and juvenile dependency courts by joining us today.
Cases involving removing custody, or legal rights to children, are heard by a judge in CA family and juvenile dependency courts. Never by a jury. This puts families at risk of long, drawn-out, highly damaging court cases. The right to a decisive trial by jury, gives targeted parents a way through this difficult process in a fairer, more democratic way. Review our 2021-2022 petition below.
