7. Enforcement of the ADA and the ADAAA: The vast majority of women in high conflict divorce face multiple challenges in family court where so many of the procedures and processes have broken down. As a result, many are experiencing legal abuse syndrome or some other form of post traumatic stress disorder. Others may have developed both physical and psychiatric difficulties as a consequence of living with an abuser. For that reason, we need to ensure that women such as this receive reasonable accommodations and protection against discrimination based upon their disability. Preferably, we need to develop a strong group of ADA Advocates trained by Dr. Karin Huffer of Equal Access Associates to accompany litigants into family court to ensure that litigant's ADA and ADAAA rights are enforced. We need to work with family court to educate court personnel in regard to the rights of litigants under the ADA and the ADAAA and we need to continue to insist that litigants with disabilities receive the rights to which they are entitled.
