Other Mothers’ Children

Other Mothers’ Children

From Dr. Lori Handrahan:
While Rachel Maddow, MSNBC host, cried during her broadcast on Wednesday overcome with emotion about child separation at America’s southern border, I have not been afforded the indulgence of grieving for other mothers’ children. I wish I had this luxury. I really do. How comforting it would be to cry for other children, knowing my daughter was safe with me.

During this media frenzy of stimulated outrage about US immigration’s long-standing practice of separating children from adults who may or may not be their parents during illegal border crossings, I’ve had dry eyes and crippling heart pain as I struggle to suppress memories of my two-year-old daughter screaming as she was separated from me. Unlike Hollywood stars, journalists and other personalities flooding social media in distress, I know what it feels like to be a mother whose child is taken. The sound of a young girl frantically crying in terror, arms outstretched, reaching for her mother has been almost my entire experience as a mother.

Family courts and child protection services (CPS) have been illegally taking children from good parents on false pretenses for generations. Native Americans, African Americans, poor whites in rural areas like Appalachia and Maine, disabled children, children of legal immigrants, etc. Where there are vulnerable children, from asylum-seekers to welfare-recipients, children have been targeted by US government for separation from their parents.

For two years I was forced by the State of Maine to traffic my daughter for weekends with her father after he was confirmed for raping her and then she was taken from me entirely when she was four years old. A notoriously corrupt judge ignored testimony from medical examiners who explained, in detail, my daughter had been sexually abused by her father and should be protected from unsupervised contact with him. This judge defied Maine’s top forensic doctor and ordered me to drive my daughter, three hours each way, to her father every weekend. Prior to being confirmed for sex abuse, her father had been on supervised visits ordered by a female judge concerned about my daughter’s safety given her father’s police record of domestic assault against me. The female judge was removed from the case and replaced, in illegal case-rigging, by a male judge known as Maine’s worst judge.

The first time I took my daughter to her father I had to lie. My little girl was in her car seat in the back seat, crying hysterically, having trouble breathing from the air her sobs were stealing, screaming no, no, no, she didn’t want to be with her father. He was hurting her. I pulled off the highway and reassured her we were going home. She didn’t have to go to her father and pretended we were driving home. She fell asleep. Two hours later I gave her to her father. That was only the beginning. There were many excruciating drives in the dark, in the snow and in the rain, while my two-, then three- and four-year-old daughter cried, begging me to stop the car and hold her. “Carry me, Mama. Carry me.” Over and over. I would drive with one hand on the wheel and the other hand behind my back, holding her small hand while she sobbed.

The hysteria in America this week about children being separated (potentially) from their parents has been particularly painful because the liberal/progressive community—with which I have always identified—now howling, never once extended a hand, much less a tear, for my daughter. Women and children’s organizations, politicians, journalists, government employees, lawyers, etc., everyone I could think of I’ve begged for help. For nearly a decade. I have sat outside the Inspector General for Health and Human Services office reading a book, waiting patiently for days, until someone was willing to even meet with me. I have walked the halls of Congress handing out information about my daughter’s case. I have filed every possible piece of paper with every oversight mechanism that exists.

No one cared. No one helped. People rarely even expressed empathy for me or my daughter. Quite the opposite. People have been cold, cruel, unkind and uncaring. Many of those weeping over children at the border know me and what happened to my daughter. Since it wasn’t politically advantageous for them to care, no tears were shed for my child.

My daughter will turn 12 this year. She has had no contact with her mother since she was four. She does not know where I am or why I am not taking care of her, loving her, protecting her. In five years she will be 17 years old. The college fund I had set aside before she was born is gone. I have been unemployed for five years now, after her father and his lawyer targeted my job as a professor and stalked and harassed me on campus until the university illegally terminated me for being “unable to keep my personal life off campus”. Before my daughter was trafficked, she was a child who had a professional mother, respected in her field, earning a good salary, owning her own home with savings, retirement and health insurance in place. All of that is gone. Taken from me and my daughter by an organized group in Maine engaged in extremely profitable racketeering by trafficking vulnerable children.

Across the country, lawyers, judges and child protection employees are putting children in the sole custody of fathers confirmed for abuse of their own children. This is common. My daughter is far from the only case. Patricia Mitchell, of Patricia’s Children, explains how family courts have become criminal enterprises in her Huffington Post articles. Family courts and child protective services are secure-supply lines for pedophiles to obtain control over, and unfettered access to, children. They are trafficking children. But no one has cared.

What makes this week’s liberal outpouring of tears even more painful is that my daughter’s father is a criminal alien. He has been protected while my daughter and I, law-abiding US citizens, have been destroyed. He obtained a green card and citizenship by defrauding the US government and was scheduled to be detained for deportation for crimes he committed. Someone at Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) criminally protected him and someone at Citizens and Immigration Service (CIS) unlawfully provided citizenship.

In addition to understanding, at an intimate level, how contaminated child protection and family courts are, I have also had a painful education in our shattered immigration system. For example, nearly half of all Citizen and Immigration (CIS) employees, about 10,000, are contract staff, subject to almost no oversight. They can, and do, get away with many crimes. The New York Times reported, in 2017, that CIS investigators have “repeatedly warned top managers that unaddressed allegations of corruption among contractors” could put the entire immigration system at risk. Then there is Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In 2010, the ICE union, of nearly 7,000 employees, issued a scathing vote of no confidence in President Obama’s ICE director John Morton detailing a culture of incompetence almost beyond belief.

Chris Crane, ICE union leader, spoke out so many times about the corruption and incompetence within ICE that The New York Times reported “Obama administration officials become exasperated at the mere mention of his name”. Of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), even America’s most quintessential liberal organization, the ACLU, affirms “Border Patrol Was Monstrous Under Obama”. Not surprisingly, a staggering amount of these immigration employees have been arrested on child sex crimes, detailed in my book Epidemic: America’s Trade in Child Rape.

I spent the entire Obama presidency trying to get someone’s attention focused on the crimes committed against my daughter and I, by a criminal alien and government employees. No one was crying for the children at the border then and no one cared about my daughter either. President Donald Trump’s immigration policy and Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions decision to fix a broken immigration and citizenship system gives me hope, for the first time in nearly a decade, that I may see my daughter again.

The Trump Administration has declared a new focus on citizenship fraud. People who lied to illegally obtain citizenship will be, the administration vows, investigated, stripped of their citizenship and potentially criminally charged. AG Session has renewed a focus on child sexual exploitation announcing 2,300 recent arrests and saying “no child should ever have to endure sexual abuse…this department will remain relentless in hunting down those who victimize our children”. Finally, Sessions is “exerting unprecedented control over immigration courts—by ruling on cases himself.” I hope my daughter’s case may be one he personally selects.

Our immigration and child protection services were defective long before President Trump took office. Children are being taken and abused—in mind-numbing numbers in America by the very people paid by our tax money to protect them. Children like my daughter.

Yet no one has cared. Until now. But now the focus is only on asylum-seekers. To those tearful about child separation at the border, I ask what about my daughter? Doesn’t she count?

Perhaps the Trump Administration will think she does.

The Family Courts Are Anti Family- Corruption Must Be Exposed

Each year hundreds of parents of small children walk into the Family Court in New Rochelle and file petitions claiming that the other parent, usually the father, has inflicted some kind of harm on their child when in fact it is not true.The children are usually from five to ten years old. The parent who files goes before Judge Nilda Morales Horowitz who has fixed several cases and got caught with no punishment. She gives the parent advise. Gets Child UnProtective Services involved, The County Attorneys Office and Victims Assistance and assumes the defendant is guilty.

Investigative Reporter Lilia Luciano of ABC 10 and SF Rappers Tell Problems in Family Court

 

Lilia Luciano of ABC 10 in Sacramento is the first mainstream media reporter to dive into problems in California’s divorce and custody matters, exposing the problems in family court and with CPS workers and court appointed experts. 

Perhaps the greatest loss of trust in our legal system is bubbling in family court issues, where courtrooms have become modern day popularity contests overseen by incompetent and overworked judges. False claims of abuse, the lack of judges following the law and abusive parents who conceal abuse with high paid divorce lawyers and experts are the problem. 

In CPS cases people without money or education often find their children susceptible to federal funding that encourages CPS workers to get children into the system and placed in foster care. 

Lilia has featured pioneers in the family court reform movement from Kathleen Russell of the Commission on Judicial Excellence, Joe Sweeney of Center for Modern Courts and Family Court Legal Custody expert Robin Yeamans of Campbell, California. Parents including Shane Down from social media #NOTYOURRIGHT to Kathey Lester, a retired federal court processor are also being covered by Lilia who is diving deep into social media to find the truth. 
Michelle Chan, a writer and mom who lost her child to a corrupt CPS process, has worked with folks like social media guru Jenny Wells  and Cathy Cohen to get these stories  out to mainstream media. 

(Lilia is reportedly a Jane and John Q Public regular reader, as are many underground lawyers sympathetic to the family court reform movement.) 

At the heart of the issue is money and corruption. Family courts in California  have been largely ignored by state lawmakers and judicial managers. The State Bar has been a runaway train, failing to discipline lawyers who use family law cases to create an underground economy that benefits themselves.  In today’s modern courts property is no longer simply divided as lawyers use domestic violence to loot from victims and  where abusers can buy verdicts that allow them to continue to emotionally and financially  abuse,  or intimate,  partners who  try to escape, or expose,  the abuse. 

The modern judge appears more prone to rule  to benefit lawyers they favor, or CPS and other Family Court Service workers who help judges keep a lid on dissent. 

In Santa Clara County, Family court service workers have been pointing investigative reporters like Luciano to problems and corruption in the system. 

In San Francisco CPS victims have joined with family court victims and organized large protests, created music and art, and used social media to investigate corruption that is harming families and children. 

Transparency and public attention will be the key to undoing the damage done in secret courts and confidential reports that are designed to profit a select few yet that  act to harm so many children. The story will be told in mainstream and social media with off shoots of creative music, art and film that seek to expose the problem in our modern family courts.

Grandmas, Nurses, Baby Stollers, Dogs & Media To Rescue Children from Family Court Judges

Picture

​Walnut Creek, CA- On May 8, 2018,  dads, grandmas, nurses and moms with baby strollers  brought out the dogs and the media because they have had enough of bad judges, corrupt lawyers, indifferent  CPS workers and cops threatening to take away toy megaphones. 

​ABC 7 , ABC 10 Sacramento, CBS, KTVU and anonymous bloggers were there to capture what  surely was  the largest and most unexpected family court protest in California’s history. 

​The  passionate protest began on a sunny spring morning in the quintessential suburb of Walnut Creek, California. Protestors connected in advance through social media then dawned with signs, shirts and megaphones, they  drove from as far away as  Yuba County and Santa Clara to join Contra Costa parents demanding the removal of Judge Jill Fannin and Judge Hardie. They demanded changes to CPS and they demanded dishonest lawyers be disbarred. 

​Prior to the March the group gathered, put finishing touches on hand made signs,  and shared their stories. As the speakers told tales of CPS workers ripping children from good homes, and parents without criminal records being placed on supervised visitation with their own children, reporters grappled with the disconnect they experienced after having been told for decades these people were simply disgruntled, crazy, abusive and vexatious.  

​The protest was not violent, as Judge Lucas  has historically told the press to justify unconstitutional  orders that have provided for her to justify arresting two family court reform activists in the weeks leading up to the epic  Contra Costa protest  on May 8th. In fact in Contra Costa,  the Walnut Creek police, and the Contra Costa Sheriff supported the protestors with escorts, support and refusal to arrest, where the Santa Clara County Sheriff use threats and intimidation as a matter of routine. 

Santa Clara County Moms  who are demanding the  removal of Judge Pegg, Judge Chiarello, Judge Scott, Judge Persky  and Judge Towery rocked   shirts noting  #childrenslivesmatter and joined Scott the Protester in the Board of Supervisors chambers the following day for public comment before Supervisor Chavez and Cotese. 

​Finally, Scott Largent stood with hundreds of others, on court property, using amplified  devices and shouting deafening demands for bad judges, lawyers and CPS workers to be fired. Conduct that had gotten Scott Largent arrested,  which was documented on videos that went live on Facebook and viral on YouTube. Videos that will be used on the internet to show Patricia Lucas’ children what she really does as a judge. 

​Nurses, social workers and others who started the day in masks, say they felt free to take  their masks off and join the crowd because mainstream media finally came to call where family court issues were concerned. 

​Noted in the crowd were Joe Sweeney, Court Reformer credited with attacking the Commission on Judicial Performance, and megaphone darling, Michelle Chan, dubbed mother of the CPS accountability movement.

​Throughout the day tales of false domestic violence and ignored child abuse ripped through the crowd and the event reached its mot passionate moments as the crowd faced the courthouse and screamed for justice to the judges and court staff who hid inside. 

​On  May 9th several parents from the protests  made public comments to the Santa Clara County Supervisors Cindy Chavez and Dave Cortese, trying to explain what it is like to have domestic violence ignored and to have indifferent judges ordering good parents to be put on Supervised Visitation based on involvement of a few corrupt lawyers such as Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Nicole Ford and Elise Mitchell.

Comments  brought many members of the audience to tears after Michael Lazarin explained how the community ignored domestic violence prior to his daughter Audrie Pott committing suicide in 2012 and where moms described how judge Pegg and Judge Drew Takaichi abused their power as judges to take their children away without cause, and with incentive to pay favored lawyers. 

The protests and public comment have launched an investigation into if  District Attorney Jeff Rosen,  Rabbi Aron from the Shir Hadash congregation in Los Gatos. and Mike Wasserman,  ignored  domestic violence that served to harm Michael Lazarin’s daughter Audrie Pott, and others like her.

At the same time, Rosen was known for deterring victims of sexual assault perpetrated by rabbis in the Los Gatos community, with the help of Rabbi Aron.  An investigation is also underway to determine  if Supervisor Mike Wasserman acted for the benefit of his  political  career.. These cases show  tax payer money intended for victims was redirected through  Silicon Valley Faces, and the Shir Hadash congregation in Los Gatos, which appears to have been covered up  a 2012 sexual assault scandal that completely violated CCAR’s Code of Ethics and that let sexual predators remain in the town of Los Gatos. 

​Protestors will return on Tuesday May 15, 2018 and this time will meet at the Santa Clara County Building located at 70 West Hedding in San Jose at 9:30am ,  where they will call on the media and demand changes in CPS, Child Support and family court.

Judges Blink Under Threat of Social Media and Contra Costa County Family Court & CPS Protest

Judges Blink Under Threat of Social Media and Contra Costa County Family Court & CPS Protest

The Only Thing More Dangerous than Lots of Money, is Having Nothing Left to Lose! 

CPS and indifferent judges need only look in the mirror on May 8, 2018,. as hundreds of batshit crazy, disgruntled litigants, and parents denied custody of their own children will descend on Walnut Creek’s Civic Center to demand change. 

​Parents are coming from Sacramento (#notyourright) and Santa Clara County ( #freeScotttheProtestor) to demand changes in the state’s family courts. 

​The have been painting signs, posting on social media and ordering t-shirts to make sure their message is heard. 

​ABC 7 and KRON, along with a host of print reporters will be on hand learning the person survival stories involving good parents and children trapped in CPS, foster care and our family courts. 

​Sanctions- False Charges- DVRO- Parental Alienation are all on topic for the day as Judge Fannin, and Judge Lucas sit by, nervously aware such protests could end their career. 

​Retaliation being very real, protestors may wear clothing to  disguise their identity  and  to avoid the harassment and intimidation Santa Clara County routinely imposed. 

​Protesting and picketing parents intend to return to Santa Clara County to keep protesting complicit judges and cash greedy lawyers. 

The March starts at 10:15 am at the Walnut Creek Civic Center.

Facebook Catches Jewish Mafia Family Court Lawyers Tied To Judge Persky Recall

Facebook Catches Jewish Mafia Family Court Lawyers Tied To Judge Persky Recall

Dark Money: Keith Dolnick Caught on Facebook

Divorce attorney Keith Dolnick shot to instant fame with the ruling from Napa County in Hayward v. Superior Court.  However, leaked documents and secret recordings show Dolnick’s win may have more to do with his connections to Los Gatos’ Jewish community than his legal skill. 

Sure, Dolnick won a case that set private judging and referees on notice, but the ruling was a legal goldmine that brought Dolnick to Santa Clara County through court CEO David Yamasaki and court counsel Lisa Herrick, a former partner at McManis Faulkner. 

​Mc Manis Faulkner is the clean- up lawyer for Santa Clara County. James McManis often takes cases to give the appearance he is fighting against the Sheriff and agencies that won’t give up public records, but McManis is actually a clean up lawyer. A lawyer who writes settlements to hide sexual predators, pedophiles and liars in family court cases. 

​Dolnick, who has been secretly recorded by countless women in Orange County, who did not get the same outcome that Ms. Hayward had to pay $3,000,000 to get.was reportedly brought into the family court mafia group by attorney  James  McManis Lisa Herrick and Robert Allard,  where Dolnick was told he would see cases thrown his way if he agreed to play ball with the “in crowd” in Santa Clara County. Kael Briski and Steve Werth also were reportedly brought in through JAMS lawyers in San Francisco, who do not want private judging restricted. 

​McManis is reportedly the middleman  who acts  for District Attorney Jeff Rosen working overtime to try to block a recall movement of Judge Persky, who is also linked to the Los Gatos Jewish community through Shir Hadash, a congregation that reportedly offered $500,000 to cover up alleged sexual abuse of Rabbi Steve Kaplan as Rabbi Melanie Aron  influenced elections as a kickback to Rosen and Judge Persky.  

David Yamasaki,  court CEO, is ground zero for public corruption in both Orange County and Santa Clara . Yamasaki reportedly brought  Dolnick into what is being called the Jewish Family Court Mafia, connected to the building of the controversial Santa Clara County courthouse. Court clerks and members of anonymous reported two years ago that Yamasaki, with the help of Lisa Herrick, formerly of Mc Manis Faulkner, was reportedly stealing palm trees and other construction materials as kickbacks for family court judges and lawyers during the planning and construction of the new family courthouse in San Jose, which has become the stage for family court protests. 

Ironically, Dolnick is on record for telling his clients NOT to use Facebook, while he uses Facebook to expand a network of lawyers who are drafting settlements and JAMS mediation agreements that cover up sexual harassment, abuse and pedophilia for the lawyers and judges part of the Jewish community based in Los Gatos. 

Critics point to Dolnick’s legal record and success as mirroring that of Elkins lawyer Garrett Dailey. Dailey was allowed to win an important case against a local rule used in Contra Costa County family courts, a win that was designed to appease pro per litigants growing restless over unfair family court proceedings.

Dailey did little for pro pers and instead built a career appealing cases for some of the most criminal family law attorneys in California, while gaining favor with the Judicial Council- the agency that manages the court finances in the state. 

Dolnick’s Clients Leak Secret Recordings: Reveal Dark Money Divorces

Dolnick’s clients who lost custody of their children and their fair share of community property in a divorce case before private judges like attorney David Weinberg, Michael Reedy, Richard Roggia and Nat Hales have been secretly recording Dolnick  to prove he selectively acted as ineffective counsel while working to protect elite rings of pedophiles  and abusers, many hiding in the Jewish legal community.

Leaked documents and an independent audit shows governmental lawyers like Ann Ravel assisted in  case rigging and operation of an  underground economy of “dark money” that was fueled by the conversion of community property in high conflict divorce cases throughout California.  Dark money operations are fueled with money converted from families engaged in divorce and  laundered through organizations like UC Berkeley and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, for the benefit of lawyers drafting secret settlements and working to discredit those who may expose criminal activity that protects pedophiles and abusers lurking in Silicon Valley communities. 

Dolnick’s link to Ann Ravel through the Los Gatos community is especially alarming considering Ravel’s power and influence over California’s Judiciary and as a law professor at UC Berkeley.

Scott "the Protester" Largent  Arrested: Singled Out Fighting Family Court to See his Daughter

Videos and Facebook Live Catch Judges and Sheriffs

 SAN JOSE, CA – Scott Largent has given over 2000 public comments trying to get Santa Clara County’s Board of Supervisors to pay attention to the county’s family courts.  sheriffs and biased judges.  Few people can believe that Largent was arrested  for simply exercising his most basic First Amendment rights. 

As Tracey Kaplan from the San Jose Mercury reported: IT IS TRUE 

During a May Day Family Court Protest, Mothers who have not seen their own children for over 4 years, Native American grandmothers fighting to keep CPS from giving their grandchildren to foster care, and other fathers raped by the family court system  joined Scott Largent, as they do  every Tuesday morning to picket, leaflet and protest what biased judges are allowing to happen in modern day divorce and custody battles. 

On May 1, 2018  Scott Largent began his dissent when he  sounded the alarm once again, informing Cindy Chavez, Ken Yeager, Mike Wasserman, Joe Simitian and government attorney James Williams that women are facing unprecedented harm in the county’s courts and Patricia Lucas’s unconstitutional order was designed to silence them. 

Two hours after the meeting, Largent joined other activists and protesters, and was singled out and arrested by Santa Clara County Sheriff Rey and Duty Gomez, both the subject of  Internal Affairs investigations for retaliation. 

Two weeks earlier protesters from Silicon Valley’s DeBug had done the same, but were left alone, as a non-profit supported by county, state and federal public funds. 

Pressure from mainstream media, including calls from  Lillia Luciano from ABC 10, NBC’s Gonzalo Rojas, Metro’s Jennifer Wadsworth and San Jose Mercury’s Tracey Kaplan reportedly caught the cops redhanded and Largent’s charges were reduce from a Penal Code 148 (resisting arrest) , to only the violation of what many are calling Judge Lucas’ unconstitutional faux order.

Largent has famously referred to the order as “Butt Wipe” and “Lucas’s fake order”

Over 10 protesters caught Largent’s arrest on video and live Facebook feeds, the video shows Sargent Rey talking via phone to Judges Clark, Lucas, Towery and Stuart, all insisting Largent be arrested ” to make an example out of him and scare other parents.”

Judges Breaking the Law in their Administrative Capacity
Judge Michael Clark heads the county’s Domestic Violence Committee, and has repeatedly violated the Brown and Open Government Act while doing so, but Clark is more infamous for his rulings against Kathey Fyke in the most corrupt Sixth District Court of Appeal case, Falcone and Fyke. In that case, Lucas also shows her true colors by claiming Fkye was not believable as she nearly died of a heart condition when for4ced into family court where her properties were taken, she was declared vexatious and sanctioned over $1,000,000.  Such cases are typical of family court rulings against women in Silicon Valley.

All Santa Clara County Judges have been under fire since Judge Persky’s ruling in the Stanford rape case, and after Judge Chiarello failed to protect a mother and her daughter, which resulted in the daughter being drugged, raped and killed by her own father. 

Courts and County Misuse State and Federal Grants 
Court insiders report that “Kimberly” , from Family Court Services acted as a lookout to alert judges when Largent arrived to the protest and assisted judges and sheriffs in trying  to identify if protective moms like Catherine Campbell were among the protesters. Inside information shows Lucas insisted on Largent;s arrest, to keep him from finally visiting with his daughter, a visitation two years in the making, and made possible with state and federal grant money. Attorney Heather Allan, known for outright abuse and bill padding is reportedly working with Lucas and other family court judges to prevent Largent from seeing his daughter, as punishment for his activism. 

 In the end, Kaplan’s coverage changed the game, but  it may be anonymous blogs and websites, along with over 30,000 anonymous people on Facebook who ultimately  change California’s Family Courts as wildly successful investigative reports hit ABC 10 in Sacramento and set Twitter and other social media on fire  and mainstream media climbs onboard with watchdogging California’s Family Courts.

News Report: Call for Fulton Family Court Investigation - My Advocate Center

News Report: Call for Fulton Family Court Investigation – My Advocate Center

What do Fulton County families and children need most?

If you ask parents caught in legal conflict, you’ll likely hear the word transparency.

Georgia news media, parents, advocates and legal professionals attended a press conference on April 24th that covered in detail the danger experienced by safe, loving parents and their children in family court cases.

The allegations are serious and a plea was made to Fulton County’s District Attorney Paul Howard to investigate the claims.

The press conference featured Georgia expert William Perry who is known for his news reports on ethics failures in government. Perry, who goes by Georgia Ethics Watchdog in his reports, learned just how dangerous the legal environment is for families, and decided to do something about it. Several tragic stories were shared and family law attorneys weighed in, agreeing that something needs to be done. Atlanta’s Fox5 News aired the story that evening, doing a remarkable job at laying out what is complicated and challenging to explain.

The news report explained that for these parents who are being victimized, nothing is more important to them than their children. Children are reportedly being taken from them without any regard for the law.

Perry addressed needed policy changes and spoke about his challenge to law enforcement and other authorities to investigate cases where good parents are wrongfully accused, torn from their children and set up to fail.

My Advocate Center’s term to describe the problem is profit over protection.

Outcomes make no sense given our laws and the facts in such cases.  The real needs of children are thrown by the wayside. Does it need to be this way?

The image here was taken by a news team at the Fulton County courthouse in recent years, when custody experts were paid to suppress evidence of child abuse that was substantiated by forensic evaluations and law enforcement. The litigation resulted in protection and proper medical treatment being withheld from the child.

Young adults are coming forward now to speak about their experiences such as what this child experienced when outcries for help were ignored and silenced. There is no need to wait in beginning investigations and working to remove danger by closing loopholes in state policies.

When families are exploited there is often a lack of transparency and due process in the management of the litigation, so Perry emphasized the need for parties to be allowed to record their own court proceedings.

Superior Court Rules on Recording Court Hearings

This issue was addressed by Georgia’s Supreme Court and Superior Court judges and includes recommendations from stakeholders in the press, My Advocate Center and other advocacy groups.

The new rule changes take effect in May of 2018, benefitting the public, professionals who are ethical and committed to protecting clients and children, and also benefitting the courts in creating more efficiency and positive outcomes.

Parents, grandparents, professionals and even children are speaking up about experiences and the need to take action. Contact My Advocate Center’s founder Deb Beacham here to report details to My Advocate Center or to ask for assistance.

Investigations and News Reports Matter

Learn more about what is happening across Georgia and how investigations can make all the difference in improving safety, family stability, and the ability for parents and children to recover from trauma.

Contact My Advocate Center to review case studies and data on these issues. Investigators will discover that the problems described here are wide-spread and found nationwide, but with Fulton County’s large population and high rates of domestic violence and child abuse, there is a special need for a concentrated review of cases in this area.

Background material for news reports and investigations can also be found in reports such as this story by an Augusta news station about glaring misconduct by a Guardian ad Litem who manipulated cases based upon whether vulnerable women would comply with his demands, or not.
