Estevez tells her story in an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil airing Tuesday
. And, she shares how she is now trying to protect other children from meeting the same fate as her young son.
“There’s a resolution that Congress has presented; it’s Resolution 72, and the Congressman from Pennsylvania, Congressman Meehan is the lead on that,” Estevez explains. “The resolution is designed to protect children in divorce and custody. And I think once this resolution passes, then we can start focusing on the laws here in California and really start changing the way the court system and Child Protective Services operates, because they are failing children miserably. My son is a casualty of their failure. And I don’t want this to happen to any other child, and I definitely don’t want another mother to feel what I feel.”WATCH: Ana Estevez Describes What Happened When She Attempted To Get A Restraining Order Against Ex Aramazd Andressian Sr.
Dr. Phil, who has testified before Congress many times, offers to help Estevez get the 100 co-sponsors the resolution needs before it can be brought to the floor. “I have many friends in the United States Congress and with your permission, I’m going write to each one of them and ask them to enlist their colleagues in joining on Bill 72,” he says.
