Protesters Upset Over Family Courts in Ohio


If you drove by the Allen County Courthouse this afternoon you may have noticed protesters carrying signs.

The group is concerned about family courts in Ohio, contending they tear families apart for profit.

Keith Owen from Tiffin came down to support the children broken up by family court.

Owen contends the courts don’t make a profit if they bring two parents together. He says they only make a profit if they can separate.

He claims the more children they get in foster care or the family court system... title 4-D of the Social Security system kicks in and they get more than 70% of that total case...not just child support but special programs like parenting classes and anger management and all of the other classes that these courts offer these parents he says the state’s making a profit off of it and these parents are required to pay it.

Owen says he was invited to Allen county by a group of individuals having problems with the family court here, but says he would go all over Ohio to give attention to the problem.
