With fault based divorce in the 1960s, child custody depended primarily on the child’s age. If the child was under seven years old, also known as the ‘tender years,’ the mother would receive physical custody. This was because of the belief at the time that women are good caregivers and it was their job to take care of the children at home. However, if the children were older, custody would be granted to the parent of the same sex. Sometimes judges would also award custody of children dependent on martial or sexual conduct of the spouses. When custody was awarded in this way, the presiding judge could be more focused on the rights of the parents than what is best for the child in that situation. Either way, it was quite noticeable that child custody was based on the judge and their opinion, which could change from case to case.
The decision carried out by the U.S. Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education did wonders for the civil rights movement. By ending legal segregation and robbing it of its moral legitimacy, Brown showed that the law was on the side of black Americans. Political cartoons for as long as they have existed, have enabled the public and those less literate to stay informed on current cases and political events. With a (lower literacy rate) compared to those of their white American counterpart, these political cartoons were an excellent way to convey the importance of the Brown v. Board case in a visual rather than written way.
They claimed that the Supreme Court had engaged their judicial powers to exchange the established laws of government, for their own personal, political and social ideas, therefor, violating the Constitution. Legislators argued against such strong manipulation of jurisdictive power and demanded that the federal government had neither the power or the authority to force state intergration of schools. Furthermore, the exercise of power by a court of law, contrary to an established Constitution, had created chaos, confusion and was destroying the harmonious relations between races in those states effected by the Courts decision, to add, the decision had also replaced the understanding and friendships of people with hatred and suspicion. The fight over the manifesto, remained fierce and that by implementing the Brown decision, the courts would not be allowed to perform the job it was created to do, therefor, being commandeered by the federal government . The authors of this document touched on many nerves, but the main nerve being,that with Brown being implemented, it had shattered the good-natured relations between both white and blacks. Relations that had taken many decades of the enduring determination by respectable people of both races to build. Segregation had become an American way of life in the minds of many in the south, and these customs should not be altered. It’s my opinion, that a majority of southerners had been raised and bred with idealogy of white people were the only true “entitled” race. These entitled were not accustomed to sharing intergrated facilities and would confront this forced intergration by the government with strong
Martin Luther king Jr. once stated "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" indicating that if justice is not served injustice will continue. There are several cases that exude injustice such as Dred Scott vs. Sanford, Plessy vs. Ferguson, and Brown vs. Board of Education.

As it neared one hundred years after the onset of the interstate conflict which centered around slavery’s place in the United States, black citizens were still deprived of the rights guaranteed to all Americans by the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment, prompting the premier civil rights organization, the NAACP, to seek equality through the most logical method, overruling the legal base of the institution. The Brown v. Board ruling in 1954 seemed to be the death knell of segregation wrought by the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case. Unfortunately the movement of mass resistance proved to be able to out-maneuver law, particularly in the south, thanks to segregationist majorities holding legislative, executive, and law enforcing power. To force the judicially mandated desegregation on reluctant southern states the NAACP focused on universities, as they
In 1964 the average percentage for a black male to get his high school diploma was 14.6% and a white males was 27.6%. In the 1900s most people did not get their high diploma. There were many factors to this: low education, segregation, slavery and racism. Most coloreds were working as slaves from the time they were old enough to and did not have time for education. The Supreme Court had made many decisions that impact education: Brown v. Board of Education, Dred Scott v. Stanford, and Plessy v. Ferguson.

Arizona laws are used to determine spousal maintenance, child support and family support awards and amounts. In some cases, the court finds a temporary family support award appropriate. Laws and specifications regarding the handling of awards varies when comparing awards as set down in a final Decree to a temporary family support award. This differences between how the two types of financial awards are handled can lead to difficulties in interpreting the law as pertaining to the situation at hand. Such seemed to be the case with Maximov v. Maximov.
