According to Raquel Okyay and Michael Volpe:
"A leading New York forensic psychiatrist told the Rockland County Times that family court proceedings, to the detriment of families, are bought and paid to the highest parental bidder.
"This sort of thing happens in more than half the custody battles that I am involved in," said Dr. Michael H. Stone, professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons. "The parent with the most control--the most money--tends to prevail irrespective of the merits of the given custody case."
The best suited parent for custody or visitation is not always the parent who receives custody and visitation from the civil court arena, he said. "The Parent with the most money can hire an attorney of bigger quality; they also can make one motion and counter motion after another -- exhausting the resources of the other party."
