How to Support Your Children If They Are Abandoned By Their Father After Divorce

Sad little girl in green and white striped shirt


Divorce is a tough time for any family, but it can be particularly difficult for children who may not fully understand what’s happening. When a father abandons their children after a divorce, it can be incredibly challenging for them to cope with the feelings of abandonment and loss.

As a parent, it’s important to provide support and love to your children during this difficult time.

Here are some tips on how to support children who are abandoned by their fathers after divorce.


Firstly, it’s important to validate their feelings. Children who have been abandoned by their fathers may experience a wide range of emotions, from sadness and anger to confusion and anxiety. It’s essential to let them know that these feelings are normal and understandable. Encourage them to express their emotions and listen to them without judgment. By doing this, you’ll help your children feel heard and understood.


Next, provide stability in their life. When a parent abandons their child, it can create a sense of instability and insecurity. Maintaining a consistent routine and schedule for meals, bedtime, and other daily routines can help your children feel grounded and secure during this difficult time. Additionally, try to provide them with positive role models, such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, or family friends. Encouraging them to spend time with these people and building strong relationships can help them develop a sense of security and support.

Be Honest

It’s also important to be honest with your children about what’s happened. Avoid sugar-coating or lying about the situation. Explain what’s happened in an age-appropriate way and let your children know that it’s not their fault. Help them understand that their father’s actions are not a reflection of their worth or value as a person.

Seek Professional Help

Furthermore, seeking professional help can be beneficial for children who are struggling to cope with their father’s abandonment. A therapist or counselor can provide them with the tools and support they need to navigate their emotions and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Look for a mental health professional who specializes in working with children and understands the unique challenges that come with divorce and parental abandonment.


Encourage your children to take care of themselves during this difficult time. This can include engaging in activities they enjoy, such as sports, music, or art, as well as eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, and staying active. Encourage them to spend time with friends and engage in positive social activities. By taking care of themselves, they can develop a sense of resilience and strength that will serve them well in the future.


Finally, remember that it’s okay to ask for help. Coping with the abandonment of a parent is not easy, and as a parent, it’s important to take care of yourself too. Seek support from friends, family, or a therapist if you need it. By taking care of yourself, you’ll be better equipped to support your children during this challenging time.

In conclusion, supporting children who have been abandoned by their fathers after divorce requires patience, understanding, and love. By validating their feelings, providing stability, seeking professional help, being honest, encouraging self-care, and seeking support when needed, you can help your children navigate this difficult time and emerge stronger and more resilient. Remember that while it may be challenging, you and your children can get through this together.

The Four Love Languages Of Money

woman holding dollar bills fanned out in her hands


Like many people, I never grew up knowing that there were different ways to relate to money.  Most of us stumble through life trying to manage our finances the best that we can, with the limited tools given to us.  I don’t ever remember being taught how to balance a checkbook, let alone the proper amount of money to set aside for retirement.

Gradually, as I got older and was given the option of investing in an employer 401k, I began to educate myself on saving and investing.

However, getting the tools for managing money doesn’t address the issue of what money means to us personally. Most of us relate to money differently according to what our money love language is.  As a divorce mediator, I see firsthand the battles that couples go through surrounding their conflicting money languages.  Arguments about money, who spends it, who makes it, how to save it etc., are in the top five reasons couples get divorced. In fact, it is often cited as the number one reason people fight.

I believe that a lot of marriages could be happier if people understood and valued each other’s money language.  Marriage is a partnership, and if it is going to be successful, it means that both partner’s money languages are respected as an extension of that particular individual’s personality.

We are often attracted to personalities that are different than our own, and yet find ourselves in conflict when the other person doesn’t approach money the way that we think they should; that is, like we would approach money.

One solution is to educate ourselves on the different money love languages so we can begin to understand our partner’s attitude concerning money.

First of all, what is a money language?  A money language is how you view money and what money means to you.  It is understanding how you and the people around you use money to express themselves. Everyone has a money love language and according to Dr. Kenneth Doyle, a financial psychologist, there are four basic profiles.  Conflict occurs when we see money differently and expect our partner to conform to our way of relating to money.

The Four Love Languages of Money

The Driver

The “Driver” is someone who equates money to success. For a driver, the more money they accumulate or earn, the more successful and competent they feel. Money protects against feeling incompetent or inadequate.  Drivers use their money to communicate love by showing how money can improve the lives of those around them.

Money and the accumulation of it is deeply tied to their ego, and one of the greatest weaknesses of this language is a driver can be overly dependent on money for their self-esteem. They may become materialistic in order to combat a deep sense of inadequacy.

The Analytic

“Analytics” are people who are very structured and organized when it comes to money. They view money as a way to protect themselves from life’s uncertainties.  Money and the management of it are a way of providing security to themselves and those around them. Analytics can easily establish a budget and stick to it; they are well structured financially and are good long range money planners.

They express love to those around them by planning for the future well-being and interests of loved ones.  However, like all money languages, this money language has a weak side.  Analytics can become legalistic and controlling regarding money and budgeting.  They have their own sense of financial logic which can sometimes communicate disregard and disrespect to their partner.  Their conservative attitude towards money can override the feelings of their partners to the detriment of the relationship.

The Amiable

“Amiables” adopt an attitude of “Life is relationships, the rest is just details,” concerning money. Money means love and affection and an Amiable uses money to share what they have with those around them, especially their loved ones. But a lack of money is hard on amiables because it translates as an inability to demonstrate love, which can sometimes make them poor money managers.  Because they are generous and good hearted, they can sometimes lack long-range planning skills.

The Expressive

To the “Expressive,” money is acceptance. It purchases the respect and admiration of others. It provides the basis of relationships with desirable people. Expressives communicate love by shopping, buying, and spending to gain acceptance from a select group. This language can be used in a negative way to hide feelings of pain, insecurity, or incompetence.

Expressives can become overly dependent on money to solve problems and calm fears.  Spending money can sometimes become an addiction to Expressives because of its deep connection to their self-esteem.

Because marriage is a partnership in every way, including the way money is handled, sharing money can be extremely challenging, especially when couples are not aware of the different money languages.  But I have found that most successful marriages are made up of partners that value each other’s money language.

Not only do they spend time communicating their own wants and needs concerning money, but they also spend time learning their partners style and validate their unique money personality. Learning to appreciate and balance each other’s money love language will equip a marriage to go the distance and become the fulfilling relationship it was intended to be.

Smart Money Moves For Divorced Moms on the Job Hunt

woman holding up a sign that says, "need a job"


Divorce is difficult for anyone, but it can be particularly challenging for single mothers. As you navigate the emotional and practical aspects of this major life transition, one of the most pressing concerns you may have is managing your finances while job hunting.

This article will discuss money-management strategies to help you navigate this difficult period and emerge stronger than ever.

Divorced Moms: Money Management Strategies for Job Hunting

Divorce and money management come hand in hand. As a divorced mom, you must care for your family expenses, including your child. If you are unemployed, you must search for a job immediately. Don’t expect that your ex-spouse will take care of everything now. You are on your own. You have to manage your money and find a suitable job simultaneously. Here are a few strategies to do it.

Assess Your Financial Situation

The first step in managing your finances while job hunting is to assess your financial situation. This means taking stock of your income, expenses, savings, and debts. Make a budget to help you manage your money until you find a new job. This budget should include your regular expenses, such as rent or mortgage payments, utilities, groceries, and transportation costs.

If you have children, you must also budget for their needs, such as childcare, school supplies, and medical expenses. Be realistic about your budget and ensure it is sustainable over the long term.

If you have credit card debt, calculate how much you owe. Do you have enough financial resources to pay it off? If so, then clear it as soon as possible. If not, calculate how much you need monthly to pay off debt. Look for debt relief companies that can help to reduce your debt. Each penny counts now.

Ask debt relief companies how much you need to pay every month. How much is their fee? If they say you must pay $200 monthly, you must include it in your budget. Based on these figures, you can determine how much you need to earn monthly.

Cut Expenses

Once you have a budget, the next step is to look for ways to reduce your expenses. This can be challenging, but it is an essential step in managing your finances while job hunting. There are many ways to cut expenses, including:

  • Eating out less often and cooking at home instead
  • Canceling subscriptions you don’t need, such as gym memberships or streaming services
  • Shopping for cheaper groceries and household essentials
  • Taking advantage of coupons and discounts
  • Cutting back on non-essential spending, such as entertainment and travel

It can be helpful to track your spending for a month or two to identify areas where you can cut back. This will also help you stay accountable to your budget and avoid overspending.

Seek Financial Assistance

If you struggle to make ends meet, don’t be afraid to seek financial assistance. There are many programs and organizations that provide financial aid to single mothers. Some of these programs include:

  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Childcare Assistance Program

These programs can provide financial assistance for basic needs such as food, housing, and childcare. They can also help you access resources and services supporting you as you seek a new job.

Freelancing and Gig Work

One way to earn money while looking for a new job is to take on freelance or gig work. There are many online platforms where you can find freelance work, such as Upwork, Freelancer, and Fiverr. You can also look for local gig work opportunities, such as dog walking, house cleaning, or yard work.

Freelancing and gig work provides a flexible source of income that helps you make ends meet while you are job hunting. It can also help you build your skills and experience, making you more marketable to potential employers.


Networking is an essential part of any job search, and it is crucial when you are a single mother looking for work. Contact your network, including friends, family, former colleagues, and acquaintances. Let them know you are looking for a job and ask for their help finding job opportunities.

You can also join professional organizations and attend industry events to expand your network and meet new people. Networking can help you access job openings that are private and can also help you build relationships with potential employers.

Update Your Skills

In today’s job market, staying up-to-date with your industry’s latest skills and trends is essential. Consider taking courses or training programs to update your skills and make yourself more marketable to potential employers.

Get assistance with resume writing.

How long have you gone without creating a resume? Is it more than ten years for you? Get assistance with it. Try to gather ideas on making your CV, and ask others you know who work if you can look at theirs. Have it edited by friends and experts, and ask them to provide feedback? There are businesses you may hire to do this as well.

Think about daycare expenses.

Who will take care of your kids in your absence? Will your ex-spouse look after your child? Do you have any other family members who will do the job? If not, you may have to hire daycare services. You need to arrange money for that too. Discuss with your ex-spouse whether he will pay or share the expenses.

Final note

The most crucial advice I can offer is to have confidence in your skills and yourself. I bet you were a rock star when you worked before having children. There is no reason to think you won’t be that again if you have been that before. The only person holding you back is you,. You possess both talent and skill. Yet in order to use it, you must believe in it.

No Justice in a Family Courtroom; A REAL MAN TAKES CARE OF HIS KIDS!

No Justice in a Family Courtroom; A REAL MAN TAKES CARE OF HIS KIDS!

Clark County, Nevada

May 2, 2023

Veterans In Politics Foundation had an opportunity to Court Observe this case in less than an hour we were intrigued by this case that we wanted to learn more.

We pulled the entire case file and were furious about the way the Eighth Judicial District Court Family Division would allow this father to continue to rack up financial legal bills for the mother and refuse to charge the father with the frivolous filings. In addition, allowing the father to continue to violate court orders by not paying his child support.

The biggest frustration we observed with this case is the hate the father has towards the mother. The hate is so great towards the mother that it blinds the father and his revenge for the mother made his daughter a casualty of his narcissistic world.

The child always pays the price of their parent’s mistakes.


The Court Cautioned Victor Sal Victoria “of letting the child down” The Court suggested the Father “stand by his word and … not disappoint the child.”  The Court made note of Victor’s already limited visitation, which he has not been exercising, and his lack of involvement in his child’s life. Victor has been an absentee parent for the majority of his child’s life.  Instead of spending time with his child he spends time filing frivolous motions in court and pretends to be someone he’s not.

Victor makes a six-figure income which he should be contributing to the care of his child. He has failed to pay a significant amount of money for child support, health insurance, unreimbursed medical expenses, etc.    Therefore, the child has to suffer because Victor will not contribute to his child’s needs.

For a few short months, Victor was allowed to have more visitation with his child than the few hours a week schedule.    Then the Judge quickly revoked that order due to Victor’s unsupervised behavior. This proves that he is not a fit father and has no intention of ever being the dad his child deserves.

Don’t take our word for it. Please click on the case file videos below:

Wife of Family Court Attorney; Exposes State Bar, DA Child Support, Police, and Family Court Judge!

Wife of Family Court Attorney; Exposes State Bar, DA Child Support, Police, and Family Court Judge!

Clark County Nevada

April 23, 2023


Veterans In Politics International has exposed the criminal, unethical, and violations of Federal and State Laws regarding Family Court since 2016 none-stop. Since our involvement, this topic has garnered much attention.

The behaviors in this article are horrendous, to say the least, and we felt it would be best told by the litigant herself.

Here is her nightmare:

Hello, my name is TARA KELLOGG. I am the ex-wife of ALEX GHIBAUDO ESQ. I filed for divorce, which was finalized on February 1, 2017, after 16 years of marriage. We have one child together, born May 17, 2001. I will now give you a relatively brief summation (infra) to establish the basis/foundation of what has transpired. From there, you can see why I reasonably believe a Federal Lawsuit is warranted against the State of Nevada for egregiously blatant, undeniably intentional, and unimaginable willful violations of my Civil and 14th Amendment due process rights. Further, I have all the evidentiary documents and documentation to prove my powerful FEDERAL CIVIL CASE against the STATE OF NEVADA well beyond a reasonable doubt.

My record keeping is impeccable and thorough, as you will soon find out if/when you need anything related to my following assertions and claims. Now comes my factual timeline and the prima facie elements to prove The State of Nevada’s intentional and willful misconduct towards me. The State’s misconduct has actually and proximately caused my disability damages (actual and punitive). Alternatively, at the very least, the facts below will prove the prima facie case for unthinkable negligence, in which the State owed me a duty, breached that duty, and as such, has actually and proximately caused damages to which I am entitled.

STATE-LICENSED ATTORNEY ALEX GHIBAUDO graduated from law school in 2006 and started his first (failed) law firm in 2008. By August 2009, Ghibaudo was suspended from the practice of law for the following reasons:

 Several acts of (physical, emotional, financial, and psychological) Domestic Violence from 2003 through 2014 (Ghibaudo’s reinstatement).

 Alcoholism.

 Repeated violations of Protective Orders.

 Repeatedly abandoning clients.

 Failing to provide an accounting of client funds.

 Criminal misuse of clients’ IOLTA accounts, past and present).

 Failing to respond to the office of bar counsel after repeated requests regarding multiple grievance files.

 Making several “unprofessional, threatening, and demeaning telephone calls” to other attorneys.

Alex Ghibaudo Misconduct: (A) Foundation and summary:

  1. Judge Lisa Brown was my first Judge. Judge Brown recused herself to avoid the appearance of impropriety because Ghibaudo repeatedly contacted her by email and phone.
  1. Judge T. Arthur Ritchie was appointed the new Judge. I had an opportunity to “spin the wheel” for $500.00 and get a judge better or worse than Ritchie. Attorney Creel and Willick said Judge Ritchie was the best option; “Judge Richie is by the book Ritchie.” I now know that Willick and Creel fed me a lie. They believed I was a big fish and would pay substantial fees, knowing damn well Ritchie would drag out enforcement of my Decree indefinitely.
  1. Judge Ritchie had the simple task of enforcing my divorce decree signed by Judge Lisa Brown.
  1. Throughout 2017-2023, Judge Ritchie has NEVER enforced any provision in my Divorce Decree.
  1. Ritchie despised my divorce decree and had no intention of ever enforcing the decree resulting from the required settlement conference.
  1. In 2019, my attorney of record was Sigal Chattah. During a hearing in 2019, Ritchie threw down my Divorce Decree on his bench while shouting,” This is crap.”
  1. All that was needed from Ritchie was to enforce Judge Brown’s finding of facts and enforce my divorce decree “as is”, “not make up his version of “Ritchie Law instead.”; Hence, this is where all the” judges-attorney’s club” privileges, corruption, blatant bias towards non-attorneys, judicial misconduct, and Ghibaudo misconduct begin and end since no one in power is doing anything to end it, even now. Unfortunately, this same misconduct persists going back eight years.
  1. Refused to require Ghibaudo to produce personal and business tax returns annually to determine child and spousal support per Divorce Decree.



On 3/6/2017–I sought and received a TPO against GHIBAUDO. Ghibaudo and his girlfriend, Elske Shipp, sent illegal, unwelcome, unsolicited pornographic images on my cell phone of the two engaged in sexual intercourse. The text messages lasted 44 minutes.

On 7/18/2017–Trevor Creel Esq. filed a STATE Bar complaint against Ghibaudo. (Trevor Creel’s Bar complaint was systematically dismissed and disposed of)

   Rule 8.3.  Reporting Professional Misconduct.

(a) A lawyer who knows that another lawyer has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct that raises a substantial question as to that lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects, shall inform the appropriate professional authority.

Hearing on 8/22/2017 

Alex – “Your honor, just like what I put on the record, what I mentioned to you off the record before Court.

Ritchie – What did you say?

Alex – just like what I put on the record, what I mentioned to you off the record before Court.

Ritchie – I don’t want you to make some notion that we had some dialogue before Court.

Ritchie and Alex had dialogue before Court, and I believe they have had several conversations outside of Court. This is highly improper and constitutes extreme judicial misconduct. No other Judge on the “up and up” would ever allow such a private conversation with one party (an attorney, no less) without the other party being present. Since Ritchie allowed as much, this reeks of corruption and strategizing as a co-conspirator with Ghibaudo on exhausting my attorney funds until I drop out.

I believe wholeheartedly that Ghibaudo and Ritchie communicate regularly about this case.

  1. Ritchie knows Ghibaudo’s false allegations before he spews them from his mouth.
  1. Ritchie knows Ghibaudo’s request for unrelated relief (not written in motion) before he requests such.

Hearing on 10/6/17 

  1. Judge Ritchie provides Ghibaudo with tax and business advice while I pay attorney fees to Willick, Creel, and Creel’s paralegal. Alex pays nothing.
  1. Alex continues to lie about his financials disseminated online by me without a single shred of proof.

EVIDENTIARY HEARING-Ritchie avoids the unsettled divorce decree provisions because he refuses to hear them.

Ritchie – “I’m going to do my best to close this thing out.” (a lie, or even worse, could be construed as “closing this thing out” as the functional equivalent of “until Ms. Kellogg’s attorney’s fees are exhausted, and she can’t afford to come back into my courtroom.”

My case is still ongoing 8 years later. Does that seem like “closing this thing out” to you or any reasonable person or Judge?” Hell no.

On November 7, 2017, a JUDGMENT against Ghibaudo was signed by STATE ELECTED Judge T. Arthur Ritchie. Including:

  1. Child Support Arrears.
  1. Medical Insurance Arrears for the minor child.
  1. Family Support Arrears (the Judgment is still unpaid).

2017 – Numerous status checks occur every six days to ensure Ghibaudo paid the MINIMUM amount per the divorce decree, which rarely happens. Continued status checks cost more attorney fees than the minimum support obligation. This was, and still is, Ritchie’s intentional design to financially force me out of further litigation against Alex by completely exhausting my attorney funds to continue.

Not an attorney fee award is in sight from Ritchie (I stopped counting after Ritchie hit one dozen (12) deferred attorney fee requests, even though the relevant statute Ritchie is supposed to follow states that all litigants need to be on equal financial grounds. If not, the litigant with the higher income is statutorily mandated to pay the lesser-earning litigant’s attorney fees. The statutory relevance here is to keep everything equally balanced between the parties (especially when the higher-earning litigant is filing frivolous motions to exhaust the lower-earning litigant’s attorney fees deliberately).

Per the Decree of Divorce, Ghibaudo is to provide his tax returns for 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 to determine child support and alimony amount according to Ghibaudo’s income. Ritchie Never enforced the production of tax returns, Schedule C Profit and Loss statements, DFDF, etc.

To avoid a Writ of Execution, Writ of Garnishment, Alex filed a fraudulent motion indicating that HIS registered agent did not serve him with the documents. Alex’s ridiculous claim is that his registered agent is mine and my family’s 20+ years of friends.

Alex then embellished his initial lie under penalty of perjury (again) with another completely fabricated falsehood (by saying his registered agent would spend Christmas with my family, celebrate birthdays, take trips, etc.). These are All Lies under oath, no less.

Ritchie then unreasonably determined that Alex’s absurd and blatant lies somehow warranted scheduling another expensive evidentiary for which I would have to foot the bill and based on no reasonable grounds. Each time Ritchie forces me to humor Alex’s lies and fabrications in Court, I am the only one forced to pay attorney fees.

Alex, a somehow licensed attorney still, represents himself pro bono.

Further, Ritchie never mandates that Alex pay my attorney fees even though it’s the law, which is also required in my divorce decree.

Here, Ritchie set aside two full days in August 2021. Alex repeatedly lied, perjured himself, and could not remember his numerous lies; thus, he constantly got tripped up by my attorney, Jonathan Nelson.

On Day 2 of Evidentiary Heating, Alex requested a continuance. The request was denied. At the end of day two, Ritchie ruled that “the beef” between Alex and his Registered Agent was between them. This was a fact Ritchie knew or should have known before even scheduling such a ridiculous evidentiary hearing premised on such a frivolous motion filed by his buddy Alex.

Thus, I prevailed (as Ritchie couldn’t appear that blatantly corrupt, especially if there were a chance his bias toward Alex might be publicized on YouTube, etc).

This is why courtroom transparency is needed, or judicial corruption would continue to be buried under cover of & “sealed case adjudication without cause”).

However, this little “evidentiary hearing stunt” pulled off by Ghibaudo and Ritchie, in cahoots with one another, still cost me thousands of dollars to defend the ridiculousness orchestrated by both Ritchie and Alex (to drain my attorney fee resources continually).

Further, on the same day, Ghibaudo changed his LLC (Limited Liability Company filed with the Secretary of State), making it impossible to collect the 2017 judgment.

Judge Ritchie knew about this, allowed it illegally, and did nothing to remedy Guibaudo’s wrong. Once again, Ritchie is exhausting more of my attorney fees ($250K to date and counting) on an unnecessary evidentiary hearing causing me even more financial hardship (without ever awarding attorney fees) that no other reasonable judge would have ever entertained over Ghibaudo choosing his Registered Agent. (a registered agent, my family nor I had any input or influence over Ghibaudo’s decision to do such). Unbelievable.

GHIBAUDO’S suspension lasted for five years, and he was reinstated in 2014, followed by a two-year (“stay out of trouble”) probationary period. However, that was a seemingly impossible State Bar requirement. GHIBAUDO could not escape trouble and was arrested on January 1, 2016.

Further, GHIBAUDO did not report his arrest to the Nevada State Bar as per the terms of his suspension.

Hearing 2/26/18 – Trevor Creel files a request for a lien against me for non-payment of $61,000, although I paid them well over $50,000.00. Ghibaudo is a working attorney with a substantial income. He refuses to pay support, judgments, etc. In contrast, I was a full-time housewife and mother to our ill daughter. My level of education at the time of separation was high school, and I received an AA degree in 2017. Ghibaudo was present at the hearing. He wants Judge Ritchie to confirm that he is in no way responsible for the attorney fees from the Willick Law Group, and Ritchie assures him that this is my debt.

On 3/19/2018—Alex Ghibaudo was held in Contempt of STATE Court for failure to pay court-ordered support in January, February, and March 2018.

On 9/13/2018— Sigal Chattah submitted a STATE Bar complaint against Alex Ghibaudo Esq., for threats and harassment. (The complaint was systematically dismissed and disposed of).

On 10/31/2018-Ghibaudo unilaterally and illegally stopped paying all court-ordered support per the established and controlling divorce decree on October 30, 2018.

On 3/20/2019— Tara Kellogg and Nicole Ghibaudo were granted a TPO against Alex Ghibaudo for threats to cause physical harm, harassment, and stalking.

On 6/27/2019—ELSKE SHIPP (under GHIBAUDO’S direction again) hacked into my USAA account to receive unauthorized information on my two children and me. I received a text message from USAA stating: “You were recently added to the personal profile of ELSKE SHIPP. If you have any questions, please call 800-292-8995.” I discovered that SHIPP accessed the account I opened in 2014, and SHIPP wrongfully added herself as a fiancé. I immediately worked with USAA to secure my and my children’s personal information to circumvent any identity theft by Shipp (who was arrested and/or convicted of various crimes herself independently of GHIBAUDO).

On 8/9/2019—I, Tara Kellogg, submitted a STATE Bar complaint against Alex Ghibaudo

  1. Failure to pay court-ordered support obligations.
  1. Failure to disclose a conflict of interest between Ghibaudo and Hearing Master, Jennifer Henry assigned to cases adjudicated Complainainant’s Request for Temporary Protective Orders, all in violation of Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct 3.5 (a-b): 8.4 c-(f):

On 8/26/2019—I received a letter from Phillip J. Pattee (STATE Bar Counsel) at the Nevada State Bar. The letter concluded, “No further action will be taken in this matter.”

On 9/5/2019—I, Tara Kellogg, sent STATE Chief Justice Mark Gibbons a certified letter with supporting documentation about Nevada State Bar Counsel Phillip J. Pattee. “I believe the investigatory and disciplinary process is being abused or ignored. I also believe that Bar Counsel Phillip J. Pattee is biased, lacking objectivity when reviewing complaints about Alex Ghibaudo.”

On September 25, 2019—the STATE Supreme Court of Nevada Re: Your Correspondence Dated September 5, 2019

“Your letter dated September 5, 2019, along with exhibits, has been forwarded to me for a response. As there is pending litigation in this matter. Chief Justice Gibbons is unable to intervene or advise you in this matter. Your letter and exhibits will be forwarded to the Executive Director of the Nevada State Bar for consideration. Sincerely Elizabeth A. Brown Esq. Clerk of Court.” (I never heard from the Nevada State Bar).

On 9/26/2019–Criminal Conspiracy by Ghibaudo, Elske Shipp, and Heather Bekish.

  1. The inception of the first Fake Facebook page, “Hekela Koa” developed and devoted to disparaging, harassing, and stalking me (Tara) incessantly.
  1. In total Ghibaudo, Shipp, and Bekish developed 7 Fake Facebook pages.

On 10/2019–SHIPP (“high as a kite”) contacted my then family law attorney Sigal Chattah and demanded that my bank statements be directly sent to Shipp’s email address without authority or authorization whatsoever. SHIPP has no reason, right, or basis for requesting my bank statements.

On 10/28/2019–I contacted the STATE-appointed Henderson Police Department because of the relentless and continued online harassment from SHIPP/GHIBAUDO. Upon information and belief, the Henderson Police Department contacted SHIPP and advised SHIPP to stop engaging in this behavior and misconduct. However, SHIPP flouted authority and continued engaging in said behavior. SHIPP was empowered and emboldened by GHIBAUDO as a STATE licensed officer of the court.

Ghibaudo continued telling SHIPP “It was “okay” to carry on with the harassment. Thereafter, the Henderson Police Department inexplicably closed the case within minutes after learning GHIBAUDO was a STATE licensed attorney. Ghibaudo threatened to sue them (calling the officers “pigs” in the process).

On 10/30/2019–GHIBAUDO and SHIPP unlawfully and without permission attempted to access my Capital One account. I received a message from Capital One that my account had been locked out due to too many failed attempts. Henderson Police Department Incident Report No. LHP191025000778.

AGAIN, the Henderson Police Department did Nothing because they were intimidated by a STATE licensed attorney (Ghibaudo) threatening to sue them.

On 10/30/2019–GHIBAUDO and SHIPP attempted to unlawfully and without permission access my PayPal account from an unknown mobile device.

November 2019—Conference call with STATE elected District Attorney Steven Wolfson, Suzi Trubi, Assistant Director of Child Support Enforcement, my dad, Dr. Joseph Kellogg, and me.

The conference call addressed Alex Ghibaudo’s failure to pay Spousal Support since October 30, 2018, and child support arrearages and Child Support Enforcement’s ultimate failure to enforce.

In addition, we further discussed NRS 201.020. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, this conference call resulted in nothing of consequence (like virtually everything else at the STATE level whenever my CIVIL OR DUE PROCESS RIGHTS are at issue.

NRS 201.020  Penalties; jurisdiction.

1.  Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a person who knowingly fails to provide for the support of his or her:

(a) Spouse or former spouse;

(b) Minor child; or

(c) a Child who upon arriving at the age of majority is unable to provide support for himself or herself because of infirmity, incompetency, or other legal disability that was contracted before the child reached the age of majority, Ê as ordered by a court, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

2.  A person who violates the provisions of subsection 1 is guilty of a category C felony and shall be punished as provided in NRS 193.130 if:

(a) The person’s arrearages for nonpayment of the child support or spousal support ordered by a court total $10,000 or more and have accrued over any period since the date that a court first ordered the defendant to provide for such support; or

(b) It is a second or subsequent violation of subsection 1 or an offense committed in another jurisdiction that, if committed in this State, would be a violation of subsection 1, and the person’s arrearages for nonpayment of the child support or spousal support ordered by a court total $5,000 or more and have accrued over any period since the date that a court first ordered the defendant to provide for such support.

3.  A prosecution for a violation of subsection 1 may be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in any county in which:

(a) A court has issued a valid order for the defendant to pay child support or spousal support;

(b) The defendant resides;

[1:170:1923; NCL § 10516]—(NRS A 1965, 1440; 1967, 474; 1969, 271; 1979, 1284; 1983, 1878; 1995, 1196; 1999, 1208, 3568; 2001, 278).

In direct reference to this statute supra, GHIBAUDO OWES ME OVER $300,000.00 IN SUPPORT ARREAGES, which are still unpaid, yet the STATE-elected D.A. Wolfson never found such egregious criminal violations by STATE-licensed GHIBAUDO “necessary enough” to pursue, past or present.

Instead, Woflson nonchalantly stated, “He did not want to get involved in pursuing this blatant CRIME.” This is coming from the D.A. which has a statutory and elected duty (that was breached) to pursue willful and egregious crimes against victims, including but not limited to families and especially children!

Then Nevada State Bar renews Alex Ghibaudo’s law license annually. The State Bar knows full well that he does not pay his court-ordered support obligation, judgments, and attorney fees.

In 2019 and 2020–GHIBAUDO, SHIPP, and a new player/agent in their sick and twisted game, one HEATHER BEKISH (Bekish is a disgruntled ex-girlfriend of my boyfriend), posted a Craigslist ad offering “my” sexual services to strangers. The ad provided my phone number. I received numerous terrifying, unwanted, unsolicited, and lewd phone calls and voice messages (I have one saved voicemail for evidentiary purposes).

In 2019-2020, BEKISH, SHIPP, and GHIBAUDO publicly shared my medical information, bank statements, bank account numbers, and Deposition of Tara Kellogg. My private information was posted online, in emails, and in text messages. The trio disseminated my information in my sealed Family Law case. I repeatedly requested STATE elected Judge Ritchie safeguard my protected information just as Ritchie would a juvenile. He ignored my request, just as he had done for years (multiple breaches of his duty as a STATE elected family law Judge).

As discussed supra, and on other occasions, SHIPP, GHIBAUDO, and BEKISH have engaged in an online and in-person campaign of harassment, defamation, abuse, stalking, and other atrocious conduct towards me, as explicitly discussed above and below.

SHIPP, BEKISH, and GHIBAUDO admitted to their goal and purpose of accomplishing the above-discussed objectives and admitted the same in writing and orally.

On 4/3/2020–I received a letter from my health insurance provider (Aetna). The letter said that Alex Ghibaudo from the Law Firm G Law contacted Aetna to inform them of his power of attorney status. This assertion by GHIBAUDO to Aetna was a blatant lie and completely misrepresentative and illegal since I gave GHIBAUDO no such authorization to say or do so.

On 8/2/2020—An email to STATE-elected Steven Wolfson outlining Ghibaudo’s failure to pay child support, court-ordered spousal support payments, and Larry Bertsch’s Forensic Accounting report. The report concludes Ghibaudo’s misuse of two (2) IOLTA accounts and refusal to provide documents, statements, and tax returns.

On 8/9/2020—Phil Pattee (Nevada STATE Bar, Bar Counsel) emailed my attorney, Chris Reade.

Please note that the email is dated one month before the court granted Ghibaudo’s Law License Suspension for failure to pay Court-Ordered Child Support.

The email explicitly states as follows verbatim (an unimaginable STATE-authored admission of an intentional and willful breach of duty):

“I got a call from Phil Pattee at the State Bar Office of Bar Counsel. He noted that they had received the information on child support from the CCDA and would be doing Nothing further with it. He said that the District Attorney has no authority to suspend a law license and knows it has no authority to suspend a law license. He said as he chuckles when he gets another complaint against Alex, he puts it in his 3” thick file on Alex. He said this one would likewise be put in Alex’s file but Nothing further would be done at this time.”

On 8/12/2020—STATE sponsored Child Support Enforcement-District Attorney’s Notice of Motion and Motion to Suspend Alex Ghibaudo’s Law License to Practice Law in the State Of Nevada is granted. (Yet, Ghibaudo did not pay, nor was his Law License suspended per order).

Here, another breach of duty is shown by this agency since such an ordered suspension is specifically what their job is (enforcing payment or imposing the appropriate penalties).

On 8/21/2020— An email from STATE elect Steven Wolfson to me confirming that Child Support Enforcement is pursuing the suspension of Alex Ghibaudo’s Law License for failure to pay child support.

ORDER September 17, 2020: 

The Court finds that Tara is willfully underemployed to maximize her spousal support claim, that the income should be imputed to her for the period between October 2017- the present (8 months after the Divorce decree was signed) (The NRS code states that you cannot retroactively decrease support). The Court can appropriately calculate the NET (the divorce decree states that all calculations are determined GROSS, not NET) support that is due during this time and that amount based on the evidence presented is $2,000 a month.

The Court further finds that Alex is employed as an attorney who incorporated his law firm with the Nevada Secretary of State about six months after the settlement conference on December 19, 2016. (Per the settlement agreement, all assets will remain community property until divorce).

The Court further finds the duration of the marriage, which was 13 years. (WRONG 15 years, 6 months) YOU DUMB FUCK. SIX YEARS ON MY CASE, AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW THE YEARS OF MARRIAGE!

The Court further Finds that the Court considered the earning capacity, age, and health of each spouse. Alex has an earning capacity of $140,000 per year; Tara’s earning capacity is $24,000 per year.

The Court Further Finds that the Court considers the standard of living during the marriage and finds the marriage, both parties had financial and personal issues. So that is not a compelling consideration in this case. (Ghibaudo had personal and financial issues; hence, drugs, alcohol, hookers, strip joints, and supporting random girlfriends).

In 1999 Alex moved into my 3,000 sq ft house with a pool valued at $650,000.00 and drove my $60,000 car to begin his education at CSN. (Alex had nothing.) He pissed everything away). Please see my attached deed. I stupidly added Ghibaudo to the deed to my house.

The Court Further Finds that the Court considered the career before marriage of the spouse who received alimony. Here, Tara has been taking college courses for years and has received an Associate Degree. She is currently seeking a bachelor’s degree and made effort in that regard.

I started school at CSN in 2013 while being the sole caretaker of our minor child and housewife.

I was unable to continue school and graduate from UNLV. However, Alex strategically stopped paying support on October 30, 2018. He knew full well that I would soon receive my Bachelor’s Degree. Ghibaudo does not want me to obtain an education and has made this known throughout our marriage.

The Court Further Finds that the Court considers the award of property granted in the Decree.

There was not much property granted in the Decree of Divorce to either party. (DUH! Alex stole over $700,000.00 from me. He took out a second and third mortgage on my house to afford his deplorable, vile lifestyle while living in San Francisco and attending Law School. My money provided “UNKNOWINGLY” his animalistic lifestyle behind my back.

Additionally, Alex sold my $80,000.00 vehicle and $10,000 engagement ring. He sold all the furnishings in my house and borrowed over $100,000.00 from my parents without repayment. My home foreclosed in 2009.

The Court has continuing jurisdiction to modify unaccrued periodic alimony payments outlined in a Decree of Divorce upon showing changed circumstances. NRS 125.150(8) (Ritchie imputed income retroactively back to 2017).

The only change in circumstances is the substantial increase in Ghibaudo’s income. Alex’s income increasing x 3.

The Court may consider, among other factors, a party’s earning capacity, not just income, when determining a fair and equitable alimony award. NRS 125.150.

Ghibaudo and I participated in a settlement conference and agreed on all terms, At any time any party could petition the Court for a divorce.


  1. My disability was never mentioned in the settlement conference and agreement.
  1. My disability is NOT mentioned in Divorce Decree. Why? Because it’s nobody’s business.
  1. Judge Ritchie used the required Financial Disclosure Form (FDF) questionnaire against me. The FDF asks two questions under penalty of perjury.
  2. Do you have a disability? Yes
  1. If yes, please provide supporting documentation. I provided the same documentation supplied to the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) required by the Disability Resource Center (DRC).

On 8/21/2020— An email from STATE elect Steven Wolfson to me confirming that Child Support Enforcement is pursuing the suspension of Alex Ghibaudo’s Law License for failure to pay child support.

  1. Judge Ritchie never enforced any provision in my Divorce Decree in six (6) years.
  1. Refused to enforce child support
  1. Refused to enforce health insurance for Ghibaudo’s daughter, EVER.
  1. Refused to enforce Marital Debt.

On 9/26/2020—Shipp, Ghibaudo, and Bekish created a Facebook account (“Hekela Koa”). The newly aligned trio created seven (7) Facebook accounts for inflicting emotional and mental distress upon me through relentless cyberstalking, cyberbullying, harassment, and other unlawful, actionable acts on a criminal and civil level. AGAIN, the Henderson Police Department did Nothing to protect or secure my 14th Amendment due process or any of my civil rights. Multiple breaches of their express duty to the public to protect and serve ALL victims, not just selectively.

On 10/19/2020–Cease and Desist letter was mailed to Elske Shipp and Heather Bekish from Chris Reade Esq. The letter went ignored and the harassment continued.

On 1/11/2021— Chris Reade Esq. filed TPO against Alex Ghibaudo for threats against Tara Kellogg and family members.

  1. Ghibaudo said he would physically, financially, and personally “fuck Ms. Kellogg up” and would make her wish that she were dead.
  1. Ghibaudo doubled down on his threats and said he would take out his frustrations on Ms. Kellogg physically and her family, whom Mr. Ghibaudo alleges was behind Ms. Kellogg’s litigation.
  1. Ghibaudo said he would retract the physical threats if Ms. Kellogg agreed to “specific settlement terms in good faith. This physical threat by Ghibaudo, in exchange for a compromised civil settlement, is unequivocally clear, blatant, and illegal extortion, in which the County D.A. and various STATE courts of competent jurisdiction deliberately turned yet another blind eye to STATE-LICENSED Ghibaudo’s criminal conduct.

On 1/11/2021—An Email from STATE appointed Assistant Director Suzi Truby (Child Support Enforcement) to my Attorney Chris Reade informing Mr. Reade that Assistant District Attorney Adam Hughes will not suspend Alex Ghibaudo’s Law License for failure to pay child support after all.

Note: STATE attorney Hughes had no discretion or authority to make such a unilateral move outside his scope of authority. This decision came after Hughes spoke with STATE Bar counsel Phil Pattee, and was told by Pattee that Hughes had no such authority to suspend GHIBAUDO’s law license even though the STATE statute clearly says otherwise.

On 1/19/2021—I drove to the Henderson Police Station at 225 E Sunset Rd. The previous police reports made at my home were fruitless. As such, the “trio’s” threats and harassment increased exponentially because the Henderson Police Department enabled their misconduct towards me and essentially encouraged it by their non-action.

Upon request, I provided a detailed police report, including violations of the protective order issued on 1/11/2021. Police Officer Hendrickson “conveniently,” said the TPO does not mention/cover social media. Therefore, the threats, harassment, and stalking continued and increased substantially, even though clear and unambiguous NEVADA STATE STATUTES are in place that say otherwise.

Hearing February 3, 2021: 

Attorney Chris Reade filed a motion for an order to show cause, attorney fees, and costs.

Ghibaudo failed to pay 39 months of court-ordered support out of 40 months. Monies paid to enforce divorce decree $300,000.00, Ritchie – Denied.

Hearing June 2, 2021- Clark County Family Court Judge Arthur RITCHIE THREATENS ME!! 

Ritchie – that should Plaintiff attempt to enforce this Court’s prior orders or her awards of support Plaintiff would be acting at Plaintiff’s own risk.

On 7/16/2021–Email correspondence between Chris Reade Esq., and Alex Ghibaudo Esq., and cc’d to my dad, Dr. Joseph Kellogg.

The emails said as follows:

  1. “If your client refuses this reasonable request (continuance), I will seek sanctions and attorney fees. When Ritchie denies it because he’s covering your client, because he’s white like you all are, I will appeal it. (Alex calls Ritchie Racist).

“If you think this is a fucking game I’ll play and mine will be to drain those ghoulish parents of hers (Tara’s) of every fucking penny he may have…you listening Joe? (Tara Kellogg’s father, Dr. Joseph Kellogg). Do you want to reconsider or not? Respond.

  1. “By the way, tomorrow every single unflattering picture of hers (Tara) is going up and I will tell the story publicly. It’s all coming out now. Fuck this, I will not be extorted by a POS.”
  1. “Just keep getting that retainer refreshed because this won’t end anytime soon so long as your old POS daughter keeps playing her stupid fucking games old man.

Just wait till I tell the world what a piece of shit you and your family are.

  1. Chris Reade Esq. emailed me the following:
  1. “He is high as a kite, But Tara, if you don’t think this email accusing Ritchie of racism is not an exhibit, you are grossly mistaken. WTH was he thinking?
  1. “He also indicated that he intends to vexatiously drain your parents. That’s an abuse of process that he just admitted to.”
  1. Email dated August 12, 2021. In the email from Ghibaudo to Shipp (Ghibaudo’s girlfriend) and cc’d to Bekish (the disgruntled ex-girlfriend of my boyfriend Mike A/K/A Hoyt Torrey).
  1. The email directs Shipp and Bekish to create another fake Facebook account or send disparaging, deplorable, disgusting flyers to my neighbors sent anonymously.

The intent is: “I aim to force this bitch to kill herself.” 

  1. To date, Ghibaudo, Shipp, and Bekish have created seven (7) fake Facebook accounts to stalk, harass and threaten me to “the point I kill myself” (as intended by the email I provided you from Alex and cc’d Elske Shipp (Ghibaudo’s girlfriend) and Heather Bekish (the disgruntled ex-girlfriend of my boyfriend Mike A/K/A Hoyt Torrey).
  1. Ghibaudo’s threats throughout the years must be taken seriously. Ghibaudo has a long string of severe DV arrests and convictions against me and his current girlfriend.
  1. In 2020, Ghibaudo disseminated my bank statements and deposition to his minions and many others.
  1. Ghibaudo makes physical threats directly to my 80-year-old dad, Dr. Joseph Kellogg.
  1. Ghibaudo threatens my dad with his intent to continue litigation indefinitely. (Emails in my possession).
  1. TPO sought and received by attorney Chris Reade against Ghibaudo. (See TPO in my possession).
  1. Phil Pattee enables Alex (Read the Chris email about the 3-inch binder BS).
  1. The State Bar runs unchecked in Clark County (DA Wolfson does not want to “get involved”).
  1. Ghibaudo and Shipp commit perjury (See perjury folder in my possession). Discuss the videotaped lying testimony by Alex and Shipp vs. the phone records exposing those lies.

Here, the courts, DA, or state Bar have done zero. about it.

On August 12, 2021, an email authored by GHIBAUDO (on his business letterhead, no less) to SHIPP and BEKISH read verbatim in its entirety as follows:

“Heather, are you opposed to starting another Facebook page about them both? I can feed you all sorts of information and shield and protect you from any kind of liability. My goal is to utterly destroy both of them. I’m not fucking around with these pieces of shit anymore. One idea I like is to print out pictures of the two of them together, attach them to his disbarment doc, and distribute them to her entire neighborhood; all, of them. I’m willing to mail it if we cannot get in.


SHIPP, BEKISH, and GHIBAUDO admitted to their goal and purpose of accomplishing the above-discussed objectives and admitted the same in writing and orally.

On 8/16/2021— STATE-backed judge Ritchie required an unprecedented, improper, unfounded, abnormal, and unheard-of two-day Evidentiary Hearing on a Writ of Execution/Writ of Garnishment.

On August 17, 2021, Ghibaudo changed his LLC to defraud me in violation of NRS 89.022.

From 2018 through 10/2021, I, Tara Kellogg, filed twenty-eight (28) police reports for continued threats, harassment, and stalking with the STATE approved Henderson Police Department.

  1. ALL police reports were closed without investigation (blatant breach of duty).
  1. Seven police reports were left blank.
  1. Eight Police reports had basic information incorrect, such as my name.
  1. On 10/03/2022, Officer Eric Bohn from the Henderson Police Officer reopened my case(s) and forwarded it to the Cybercrimes Unit.
  1. In March 2023, Detective Vargason from the Henderson Police Department (Cybercrimes Unit) contacted me three (3) months after I provided:
  • The flash drive included threats, harassment, relentless stalking, grotesque, deplorable, vile, repugnant photos of me, including my name: Tara R. Kellogg, Tara Rae, Tara Rae Kellogg
  • My sworn declaration/affidavit.
  1. Detective Vargason dared to inquire how long it would take to view the flash drive (as if he did not want to be unduly burdened from doing the exact job he is paid very well for).
  1. I was incredibly insulted by Detective Vargason and “matter of factly” assured him that the length of time it might take him to do his job would be substantially less time than it took me to put all of the “nightmarish documentation together for him (unpaid no less).
  1. I contacted Detective Vargason approximately one (1) month later for an update. Not surprisingly and conveniently, Detective Vargason “did not see any crimes, harassment, stalking, threats, etc”. Although, the last email I received from Ghibaudo specifically stated, “I aim for this Bitch to kill herself.” There is Nothing to see here, I guess (unbelievable).

On November 23, 2021– Ghibaudo was exactly three years (36) months behind in his court-ordered-support obligation.

Jonathan (JK) Nelson said, Ms. Kellogg is continually prejudiced by your failure to act.

Ritchie set an Order to Show Cause for February 2022. Why?? Because Jonathan Nelson was spot on!

Michancy Cramer said in Open Court, “Tara can go sleeping around with half of California. 

Ritchie said NOTHING!!

Ghibaudo held in contempt. However, Ritchie emphatically refused to implement a $500.00 fine for each month Ghibaudo failed to pay support or incarcerate Ghibaudo for failure to pay Court ordered support for a whopping 39 months.

Instead, Ritchie held me in contempt for sharing hearing videos (currently on appeal).

Ghibaudo disseminating my bank statements and other financial docs, deposition, etc., from the evidentiary hearing from May 2019-September 2020. This can be proven.

Ritchie decreased my alimony retroactively and substantially. Ritchie declared that I do not have a disability. However, my disability was never mentioned in the settlement conference or the Divorce Decree. Why? Because it’s nobody’s damn business.

When did this Family Court Judge become a medical doctor?

Ritchie was seeking any reason to decrease my alimony by any means. I stupidly answered honestly on an FDF, “Do you have a disability? Under the Penalty of Perjury, I answered yes.

(Although, it’s nobody’s fucking business) The question further asked me to provide documentation. Thus, I logged into My UNLV account and provided the same documentation I had provided the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at UNLV.

The letter from my psychiatrist and the document from the Social Security Administration. I have the evidence to support this as well.

Ritchie discriminates against people with disabilities, and he is sexist and racist.

Judge Arthur Ritchie, needs immediate removal from the bench before continuing the mountains of destruction, and he MUST be stopped.

On 1/27/2022—Tara Kellogg was ordered to be present for a Deposition at Ghibaudo’s office by Ghibaudo.

Such an order was inherently dangerous since it put me at severe risk of having to be in the same room with an individual who had been arrested and/or convicted more than 30 times for assaulting me in the past.

Including two acts of strangulation. The STATE discovery commissioner ruled against me and my legitimate safety concerns in favor of being unreasonably placed in danger at Ghibaudo’s office. What is so outrageous here is that this was during the height of COVID when such depositions were routinely conducted by” bluejeans” for far less.

Thus, I employed a retired Metro Police Officer to accompany me during the “ridiculous” seven hours Ghibaudo kept the deposition going for his amusement (like a cat taunting a defenseless mouse).

Additionally, Ghibaudo refused to allow the former Metro officer in his office. Ghibudo said, “I hate fucking pigs.” I was terrified the entire time and was legitimately convinced he would kidnap or kill me based on his past actions and current physical threats.

In 2022, GHIBAUDO and SHIPP signed me up for many services and contact lists without my consent. For example, SHIPP signed me up for a job search service that resulted in several unwanted calls and voice messages. SHIPP has no right, privilege, or reason to be concerned about my unemployment status or personal life.

On 2/11/2022–GHIBAUDO and SHIPP created a Facebook account under the name of Lisa Jakobsen (“Jakobsen Account”). The Jakobsen account was created solely to harass, threaten, insult, intimidate, ridicule, defame, stalk, and other legally impermissible behavior toward me.

SHIPP has admitted to being the creator of the Jakobsen Account, and GHIBAUDO admitted to several threatening, harassing, stalking posts (I have the text messages confirming such for evidence provided by Heather Bekish in a lapse of Judgment on her part).

I made countless calls to the Henderson Police Department and numerous Police reports that fell on deaf ears yet again. Shocker. I am now a prisoner in my own home because no one at the STATE LEVEL is doing an iota of what they are required to do by law to protect and serve me as a daily, never-ending victim of this trio.

On 2/12/2022—Again I filed a police report for threats and harassment. Please note that I had a previous appointment with my physician on Friday, March 24, 2023. The appointment was to renew my Disabled Placard. My doctor determined that I will no longer require renewal of the disabled placard. My physician determined that I was “completely disabled.”

The Henderson Police Department is one of the NEVADA STATE agencies that have actually and proximately caused by Federally recognized SSA disability and damages (in which compensatory and punitive damages are highly warranted in Federal Court). The police failed to do a simple investigation. Had the Henderson Police Department (an agent of the STATE OF NEVADA) done a sliver of work between 2018-2023, my future would look drastically different for the better.

However, they chose to do NOTHING instead but ensure the aforementioned “trio” continued to haunt me daily with their antics and with unfettered discretion.

The Henderson Police Department would rather have me employ an expensive PI and do an investigation on my own than do their actual job.

However, “but for” the Henderson Police Department’s willful, intentional (or at the bare minimum, wanton and reckless negligence) over the years, I would not be disabled (ACTUAL DAMAGES) at this point in my life. I would not be diagnosed with PTSD. I would not be depressed every hour of every day, I would not have debilitating anxiety and a life not worth living, as my psychiatrist astutely diagnosed).

Further, I have now developed a reasonable fear toward STATE law enforcement and elected officials based solely on the prolonged mistreatment and injustice I have been forced to endure needlessly for over eight years. I have had to learn “the hard way” that these institutions seemingly are not in place to protect me in the least, especially if a STATE licensed attorney is the criminal hell-bent on seeing me ultimately “DEAD.”

The Truth Behind Why Women File For Divorce More Often Than Men

Middle aged women with a smug look on her face


According to statistics, women file for divorce more often than men. This has been a consistent trend for decades, and it raises the question of why this is the case.

Why Women File for Divorce More Often Than Men

There are several possible explanations for this phenomenon, including changing gender roles, infidelity, financial independence, domestic violence, and communication issues.

Changing Gender Roles

One potential reason why women file for divorce more often than men is because of changing gender roles. In the past, women were expected to take on a more subservient role in the household, which often meant that they had less say in important decisions and were responsible for the majority of the housework and childcare.

However, as women have become more independent and have entered the workforce in greater numbers, they have come to expect a more equal partnership in their marriages. If their partners are not willing to share in the responsibilities of running a household or are dismissive of their opinions and needs, women may feel that divorce is the best option.


Infidelity is another potential factor in why women file for divorce more often than men. Research has shown that women are more likely to file for divorce due to infidelity, which may be because women place a greater value on emotional intimacy and connection in their relationships.

Infidelity can be a major betrayal for women, and it may be more difficult for them to forgive their husbands and move on from a partner’s infidelity. Additionally, women may be more likely to be aware of their partner’s infidelity due to their higher emotional intelligence and intuition.

Financial Independence

Financial independence may also be a factor in why women file for divorce more often than men. As women have gained greater economic power and the ability to support themselves financially, they may feel less dependent on their partners for financial security.

This can give them the freedom to leave a relationship that is not meeting their needs without fear of economic hardship. Women who are financially independent may also be more confident in their ability to navigate the divorce process and come out on the other side with their financial future intact.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects people of all genders, but women are more likely than men to experience it. If a woman is in an abusive relationship, she may feel that divorce is the only way to protect herself and her children.

Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical, emotional, and financial abuse, and it can have a devastating impact on a woman’s life. Women who are in abusive relationships may feel trapped and powerless, but divorce can be a way to regain control and start fresh.

Lack of Communication and Emotional Connection

Finally, communication issues may also contribute to why women file for divorce more often than men. Studies have shown that women tend to place a higher value on communication and emotional connection in their relationships than men do. If a woman feels that her partner is not meeting these needs, she may become frustrated and unhappy in the relationship.

Communication breakdowns can lead to a lack of trust and understanding, which can ultimately lead to divorce. Women who are in relationships where they feel that their partner is not willing to communicate or meet their emotional needs may feel that divorce is the only way to find a more fulfilling relationship.

In conclusion, there are several potential factors in why women file for divorce more often than men. These include changing gender roles, infidelity, financial independence, domestic violence, and communication issues.

While divorce is never an easy decision to make, it can be the best option for women who feel that their needs are not being met in their relationships. By understanding the reasons why women may be more likely to file for divorce, we can work to address these issues and create more equitable and fulfilling partnerships.

How To Survive The Divorce Process With a Narcissist

Man with black mask on his face


Divorce is often a painful and challenging experience, but it can be even more difficult when dealing with a narcissistic spouse.

Narcissists are known for their need for control, manipulation, and lack of empathy, which can make the divorce process a nightmare.

However, there are ways to survive a divorce with a narcissist and come out on the other side stronger and more resilient.

10 Tips for Surviving the Divorce Process With a Narcissist

Educate Yourself

One of the most important things you can do when divorcing a narcissist is to educate yourself about narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). This will help you understand the behavior of your spouse and give you insight into how to best navigate the divorce process. You can read books, consult with a therapist, or join a support group for people dealing with narcissistic partners.

Hire an Experienced Attorney

It is crucial to hire an experienced attorney who has dealt with cases involving narcissistic spouses. Narcissists are often skilled at manipulation and may try to use the legal system to their advantage. An experienced attorney can help you understand your rights and protect you from any underhanded tactics your spouse may try to use.

Set Boundaries

Narcissists thrive on control and manipulation, so it is important to set clear boundaries during the divorce process. This means clearly communicating your needs and expectations and sticking to them. For example, if your spouse is constantly sending you angry or threatening messages, you can set a boundary that all communication must go through your attorney.

Keep Records

Narcissists often try to twist the truth to make themselves look good, so it is important to keep detailed records of all communication and interactions with your spouse. This includes emails, text messages, phone calls, and in-person conversations. This documentation can be used as evidence if your spouse tries to lie or manipulate the situation.

Take Care of Yourself

Divorce can be emotionally and physically draining, especially when dealing with a narcissistic spouse. It is important to take care of yourself during this time. This may mean getting regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, and getting enough sleep. It may also mean seeking the support of friends, family, or a therapist.

Don’t Engage in Drama

Narcissists thrive on drama and conflict, so it is important not to engage in their games. This means avoiding arguments or trying to reason with your spouse when they are being unreasonable. Instead, try to remain calm and level-headed, and stick to the facts.

Stay Focused on the Outcome

Divorce can be a long and difficult process, but it is important to stay focused on the outcome. This means setting clear goals for yourself and working towards them. It may also mean letting go of things that are not worth fighting over and focusing on the bigger picture.

Be Prepared for a Battle

Divorcing a narcissist can be a battle, so it is important to be prepared for this. This means having a plan in place for how you will handle any challenges that may arise. It may also mean being mentally prepared for a long and difficult process.

Don’t Let Your Spouse Get the Best of You

Narcissists are skilled at pushing people’s buttons and getting a reaction. It is important not to let your spouse get the best of you. This means avoiding reacting to their provocations and staying calm and collected.

Keep Your Children’s Best Interests in Mind

If you have children, it is important to keep their best interests in mind throughout the divorce process. This means avoiding using them as pawns in the divorce, and doing everything you can to protect them from any conflict or negative behavior from your spouse.

In conclusion, divorcing a narcissistic spouse can be a challenging and emotionally draining experience, but it is possible.

How Divorced Moms Can Make Smart Financial Choices

happy woman looking at her money


Whether you’re planning for divorce, in its midst, or have made it through to the other side, one of your most significant considerations will have to be your finances. Where you once had your partner’s income, insurance, and savings to fall back on, you’re now self-reliant.

Many newly divorced women panic about this change in financial position, which isn’t surprising when 58% of women leave control of long-term financial planning entirely to their spouse.

Divorced Moms Can Make Smart Financial Choices

However, with the right amount of planning and research, you can use this situation to take control of your assets and make great goals for the future.

1.  Plan Ahead

When you’re the one thinking about getting a divorce or know it’s on the way, you should take measures right now to secure your financial future. You can start getting your name on or off essential accounts.

Setting aside money as an emergency will also help if you need to take time off in the aftermath to go to court or arrange child care or if you need to look for a job after being a stay-at-home mom.

Get copies of any shared financial documents and know how to access everything else you need.

2.  Find a New Financial Advisor

While you may think you’re in this new phase alone, you have people you can ask for help. First on your list should be a financial advisor. You may know someone who you and your ex used before. However, it’s in your best interest to use a different professional. Then, you won’t have any conflicts of interest or account mix-ups.

3.  Weigh Going to Court

It’s typical to want to take your ex to court during divorce proceedings. Doing so may bring you more closure, but it may not be practical in your situation. Work with your financial advisor and lawyer to determine if going to court will earn you much more than it will cost. Lawyers and time before a judge are expensive, and you may not win enough to make it worth your time and money.

4.  Prepare for Taxes

As a single mom, your taxes will look quite different than they did before. You’ll only have your income to claim, and your insurance and assets will have changed. Keep track of all your changes and deductible expenses, so you aren’t surprised come tax season.

One tax item most newly divorced moms miss is their alimony. If you get monthly alimony checks from your spouse, you should set a portion aside in savings. This money is taxable income, but the government takes nothing out monthly. Tucking some away each month will ensure you have enough to pay your taxes on it in one lump sum in the spring.

5.  Create a Budget

Creating a budget is the easiest way to get your financial feet back under you. One you’d been using when you were married won’t work the same anymore since your income and expenses have likely changed.

Use this time to assess your priorities and goals. You’ll need to set aside money to cover basic expenses like shelter, utilities, and gas. You must also plan for things like medical expenses, health insurance, and school supplies.

Your best bet is to account for every penny so you aren’t tempted to spend more than you should. Set aside some fun money within your means for you and the kids. Other extra income could go toward your savings and retirement goals.

6.  Increase Your Earnings

Your biggest concern initially is ensuring you have a job that can pay for all your family’s necessities. It may mean reentering the workforce, finding a new job, or working to move up in your company or earn a raise.

You could also turn toward a side hustle like babysitting in the evenings, taking online surveys, starting a blog, or selling your crafts. Assess your skills to see if you have another way to increase your income.

7.  Reduce Your Spending

Another way to ease your budget is to reduce your spending. Even if you can bring in more money with side hustles, a new job, or a promotion, you’ll still probably have less money than when you were married.

Decide what recurring expenses can go. Do you need to have every streaming service? Could you cancel a subscription box? Try using coupons on your groceries and cutting down on the amount you eat out.

You may even need to cut spending further by moving into a smaller home or apartment or downgrading your vehicle. Remember, you can always save and upgrade again in the future if you want. For now, keep your eye on getting by and building your emergency fund and retirement.

8.  Save for Retirement

Once you have your short-term finances in hand, you must turn toward the future. Retirement will sneak up on you if you’re unprepared. You should be setting aside at least 15% of your income — employer contributions count toward that goal. However, you can and should add more to help provide a cushion for yourself in later years and support the life you’ve become accustomed to. A heftier retirement fund will also allow you to help your kids financially as they start their lives as adults.

9.  Set Financial Goals

While it may seem daunting, now is the time to dream big for yourself and your kids. Instead of living only in the moment, think of where you want to be in a year, five years, and even further into the future. Make changes to your finances right now to align with your plans.

You Can Handle This

Right now, it may seem like the world is crumbling around you. The weight of your and your children’s financial future rests on you. However, your attitude moving forward will dictate how well you do. Remaining future-focused by setting goals and planning will set you up for success. You’re a strong and capable mom. You’ve got this!

Divorce & The Stay-At-Home Mom: 8 Necessary Steps To Take

divorce & the stay-at-home mom


Divorce can be an incredibly stressful time for a stay-at-home mom who has dedicated the past few years to raising kids and taking care of the family. By taking time away from their work life, they may be at a disadvantage. This is because it could be hard going back or relearning certain job skills to make them competitive in the workplace again.

Being a stay-at-home mom is a beautiful way to raise your kids and fill the day with the various stresses and rewards of family care. However, It should not keep you from reaching your financial goals and well-being during a time of divorce.

Divorce & The Stay-At-Home Mom: 7 Necessary Steps

Get all of your financial documents together:

This includes W2s and tax returns from previous years, income statements including pay stubs, insurance policies, bank statements, details about loans and mortgages, and investment accounts. This will help the attorney understand your financial quality of life over the past few years to ensure that a divorce does not keep you from providing the same financial well-being to you and your children moving forward.

Gain access to funds:

You will need access to your marital account to pay for the finances of divorce. Hiring an attorney to represent you is critical so that you can secure your lifestyle after the process has been completed. If you lack access to a joint account, you will need to create an individual fund from savings where you can make payments for the representation you need.

Craft a new budget:

Take the time to sit down one day and realistically draw up a budget based on how much is spent monthly on food, clothing, a mortgage on the house, utility bills, phone bills, and other necessities. This will create an outline of what is to be expected to keep supporting your kids and family.

Know what the marital house is worth:

Although you may want to continue living in the marital home for sentimental value to you and your kids, a divorce already stretches you and your spouse financially. It may be wise to have the house appraised and to know how much it is worth. In this way, if the budget needs to be limited, you can always sell the property and downsize to keep paying the bills for necessary items.

Get a handle on your credit:

You can find out your credit score on sites such as Credit Karma. Having a good credit score will allow lenders to feel more confident in lending the funds you need for mortgages on homes, cars, etc. One way to improve your credit score is to pay off student loans from the past. Remember, on credit cards you should never use more than 30% of your available credit line. Also, always pay bills on time, so you do not accumulate a hefty interest fee.

Plan to return to work:

Having a job gives you a chance to set up an individual account and grants you the financial freedom you need to cover extra expenses. Make a resume with your most up-to-date skills and go on interviews in various industries. If you have already made a budget for yourself, you will know what salary to aim for at the end of each month.

Consider requesting temporary alimony:

If a judge determines that you have been at home for an extended period of time and cannot return to work right away because you do not have immediate skills, he/she will request that your ex-spouse give temporary alimony to cover the lifestyle you have been accustomed to over the years. If no prenuptial agreements were arranged before the marriage, you might be entitled to part of your ex-spouse’s funds.

Hire a team of qualified professionals:

By finding the perfect divorce attorney to represent you, you can come to court prepared to know that you have someone there who understands your needs and where you are coming from. In hiring a team, it is essential to look for someone who has experience, shows compassion, and has a good reputation of winning settlements in favor of the client’s requests.

Hiring a lawyer to represent you can bring a feeling of felt relief. Having someone on your side to provide knowledge and skills that deliver is an essential reason for hiring a lawyer.  Being a stay-at-home mom while going through a divorce can be stressful and difficult, but you can stay ahead of the game and keep prepared by following this guideline and meeting a lawyer sooner rather than later!
