UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL LEGAL ADVICE BE GIVEN
The Family Court Accountability Coalition engages in judicial, legislative and executive branch advocacy on behalf of socioeconomically disadvantaged family court stakeholders. To facilitate our advocacy objectives, FCAC collects, compiles and disseminates court data, including statistics, studies and reports.
Like a library, we may also guide members of the public to appropriate legal materials so they can conduct their own legal research. FCAC and our staff take great care to avoid the unauthorized practice of law. The staff of FCAC will not give legal opinions or advice, nor will they comment upon or explain the meaning of legal materials. We also do not fill out legal forms or advise on how to fill out a legal form.
If you are unable or unwilling to conduct your own legal research, on our About Page we provide suggestions for getting legal help.
Reporting Claims of Copyright InfringementIf you believe that your work (or the work of a third party on whose behalf you are entitled to act) has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please file a copyright infringement notice with us. The notice should be in writing and include, in the order set out below, the following:
The country or countries to which your copyright applies;
A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on our services (including a URL and screen shot);
Your address, telephone number, and email address so that we may get in contact with you;
A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the copyright owner (or by a third party who is legally entitled to do so on behalf of the copyright owner) and is not otherwise permitted by law;
A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf; and

If you are unsure whether there has been an infringement of your copyright or about your rights in the material, we suggest that you seek legal advice before reporting the material to the Family Court Accountability Coalition or sending us a counter-notice. This “notice and takedown” process is regulated by statute. There may be negative consequences if you falsely allege copyright infringement or report material to the Family Court Accountability Coalition in bad faith.
