Child Custody Lawyer


Commense a Family Court Proceeding

You want to "fight" for custody? Here's what can happen during the case.

The Abuse Allegations

While you are competing for an award of custody whether an initial award based upon the best interests standard or a modification based upon the changed circumstances standard, your adversary suddenly alleges you abused your child.

The Allegations

Popular abuse allegations are: sexual contact between the competing father and any of his daughters awakened through "dream therapy"; the children are "afraid" of the opposite parent; the parent was too unskillful or too conflictual with the child necessitating a flip of custody; over medicating a child (Munchhausen's by Proxy) or seeing too many doctors (where a treating physician calls in the report to CPS); administering dangerous drugs to a child; not feeding or not educating a child and a catchall provision whereby any of the protective "team" deems protection is needed.

Catchall Provision

In the typical child protective scheme, there are several players who are in a position to allege acts of neglect or abuse whether real or fabricated. The judge may look at the parent and decide the parent's appearance or demeanor is "threatening". The attorney for the child can decide to invoke "therapy" and make the decision whether therapy should cease. The foster care agency can invoke their authority to place a child in care or to deny his release. The child protective service can invoke its authority to file additional or different charges.

The Court Appointed Psychologist

This is the most privileged position among all the government's players in a neglect and abuse case. The psych's papers are all protected from disclosure by court order so the psych can write anything he wants whether it's real or false. Complaint's to the psych's licensing board go nowhere because you cannot get a judge to order a release of these reports for complaint purposes. The typical finding by these psychs is narcissistic personality disorder although there are no studies anywhere linking this "disorder" to bad parenting. The report is always a hearsay narrative of phone calls the psych made with others familiar with the parents: the psych can omit or include anything anyone says, can exaggerate or diminish anyone says and can describe a parent conduct as the opposite of the parent's personality. A cop is a criminal, a teacher is a porn addict and a career mother is unskillful with her kids. It's a hearsay fest concluding with a "recommendation" ending the case.

How The Case Gets Ruined

At any time during a proceeding to establish or modify custody, one parent makes an allegation of abuse against the other parent. Typically, the accuser has already established a privileged position in the case either by hiring the politically connected attorney or otherwise finding favor with any of the "team". This causes an immediate referral to supervised visitation. This act builds a negative record against the loser and hamstrings the rest of the case. The visiting parent gets adverse write ups at the supervised visitation center even though the supervisor says everything is going great. The loser's attorney asks to be relieved and is summarily granted his request. Here follow a string of attorneys capped by a court appointed lawyer who acts against the loser to get her to settle for the loss of the child.

The End of the Case

At this point, the matter is finished. Visitation can have no end and a return to court will result in appearances before the same judge and the same "team". These cases are akin to a poker parlor visit. You draw the wrong cards and you lose. The house controls all the rules and can change them at will. Be warned.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
