We would like to congratulate Sherry Palmer as the March 2017 FUAN Advocate of the Month. Her selection is because of her dedicated work both behind the scenes and in the limelight. Her hands on efforts have been an inspiration for people nationwide.
As an entrepreneur and mother of five, Sherry earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas in proposal writing, policy analysis, and nonprofit management from the College of Community Service at the University of North Texas before co-founding Fix Family Courts with her husband and partner, Ron B Palmer.
Sherry has twice in her life had to face down oppressive court systems trying to harm her life. First, as a young child growing up in the streets of California, she had to fight judges and state bureaucrats just to remain in her regular public school classes where she was excelling in spite of her living conditions.
Second as a mother facing divorce and a court system seeking to remove her children from her for no reason whatsoever. Her two oldest children aged out and were taken from her through parental alienation; she was able to stop the system from stealing her younger two.
Sherry became politically active at an early age. She helped organize successful campaigns against injustice (both national and local), organized for political campaigns, and has even run for local office herself.
Sherry sees her current role as generating greater awareness and knowledge regarding divorce and child custody disputes and providing strategies and tools to fight injustice through teaching courses, speaking, and delivering regular webinars, and workshops.
Sherry's teachings, combined with husband Ron Palmer's brilliance and twenty-plus years of consulting for top Fortune 50 companies and top Fortune 5 C-level executives, technology development, and economics, are unique and cutting edge to the family law industry.
Sherry attributes successfully developing very powerful tools to fight family court abuse to her prior training and research experience in the medical field as well as her studies of biochemistry and genetics.
As a constitutional family rights expert, Sherry helps parents and their attorneys see the possibilities making legal arguments for parental rights as being in the child’s best interests. She enables parents and their lawyers to assert their rights and convert the constitutional principles into everyday practice and natural language.
Sherry has appeared as a guest on news and radio shows in several states. She speaks for nonprofit agencies. She also teaches labs and training simulations about family rights to parents and other marriage and divorce professionals.
Sherry is the co-author of the book NOT in the Child’s Best Interest and serves as the Marketing Director for Fix Family Courts, a business she and her husband started and run dedicated to changing the way child custody laws are created and implemented both nationally and worldwide. This work includes counseling and coaching parents and attorneys going through contested custody battles as well as educating legislators, judges, lawyers, and parents on parental rights under our Constitution.
