June 17, 2011 in Child Protective Services, corruption, justice, parental rights

Father’s Day is this Sunday. We know that Mother’s Day is really rough for those with children living in foster homes. Let’s not forget that Father’s grief the loss of their children too. Please join me in praying that this father finds answers and is reunified with his child.

Choosing The Right Key

Choosing The Right

I am a good father of 6-year-old twins (a boy & a girl) and stepfather of an 8-year-old girl. I want to withdraw my consent to services and even my submission in our juvenile dependency case. Between the kids mother and myself we were both coerced, threatened, and tricked into assigning our signatures to consent forms, submissions and services. Our six month review hearing approaches.

I am convinced that fraud, deceit, lies, deception, and unfair law practices are at work and I know that I am be led to slaughter by the system. How do I withdraw? I know I wont participate any longer, knowing that service is submission. What steps can I take on August 6th, to insist that the courts return my parental rights?

Advance Battle Plan…

April 20, 2011 in California, Child Protective Services, CPS, DCFS, DHS, family court, parental rights, termination of parental rights

If you speak to anyone who has ever dealt with the Child Protective Services (CPS) engine, they will likely tell you they wish they had been informed of their rights prior to the initial contact.

Most parents don’t believe CPS is a problem agency, until they have been contacted and frankly, by then it is simply too late. You can’t expect to win a battle when you don’t know or understand the rules of how the game is played.

Just ask any chess player. You must know the role of each piece and how they move and attack. Each piece is different and they all have their strengths and weaknesses, which can been leveraged to your advantage or used against you.

Don Lyons is a parent, who has faced CPS and won his battle — learning a lot about how the system works along the way. His precious girls were placed into the foster care system, he was threatened with the loss of his parental rights and suffered a litany of dirty tricks, lies and scandalous behavior. To his credit, he fought the system, Pro se and won.

Pro se legal representation refers to the instance of a person representing himself or herself without a lawyer in a court proceeding, whether as a defendant or a plaintiff and whether the matter is civil or criminal. Pro se is a Latin phrase meaning “for oneself”.

He explains the rules as they apply here in California and in most states. He walks you through the legal process and provides critical details that you must know, if you plan to beat the ugly beast known as family court.

Bill Sullivan writes,

“In his book, “Warning: The Truth about Child Protective Services and The Staggering Impact on Society,” my friend Don Lyons, documents 5 different ways they can get paid.

Also Many Judges’ retirement is tied to the number of cases where DCFS is deemed to be benefactor for the children or they actually sit on boards for the operators of Foster homes.

Don’s first book, Warning: The Truth About Child Protective Services and The Staggering Impact on Society, has been widely read and has helped many parents successfully gain the return of their children from state custody.

His new book will be announced shortly, so be sure to check back for more information on his latest book.

Warning: The Truth About Child Protective Services
and The Staggering Impact on Society

Poverty is not abuse…

October 21, 2010 in Child Protective Services, family court, parental rights

I have been reading through the many stories and articles on kidjacked, I am thrilled to see so many speak out, we really need thing to change. What I want to point out is a problem that is repeated over and over again as we read.
Many people complain when social services fails. Many of the cases where they failed in these stories, where the victim dies, are police issues. Police should be sent where someone is being beaten or abused. The county can follow up, but police should respond first. Don’t get me wrong, I am not defending the protective services, I feel they are a waste of taxpayers money and I totally disagree with everything about them as they stand right now. No matter how many people you get to say that foster care saved their lives there are 20 more who are in prison, on the street or dead because of that same system. 
The cases where the county fails are those where they remove the children because…

  • the parents are poor,
  • the parents are not keeping a spotless home,
  • the parents who are leaving a bad relationship or abusive relationship and the county takes sides with the parent who has more money.

The county workers are failing…

  • when they falsify paperwork and reports or write reports about multiple family visits after the visits and misrepresent the facts. 
  • by attacking good people and homes because it makes them money from the state and federal laws to do so. 
  • every time it rips a child out of a home and destroys a family.

I don’t believe that we are in a perfect world where abuse does not happen, and yes there are cases where the abuse goes above and beyond what many of us can even imagine. I do believe the majority of the cases that are investigated by the county are not abuse at all, but poor families who can not make it in a manner that is expected by society. Neglect and lack of supervision, are excuses for the county to rip families apart, they are not intentional abuse in most cases.
There needs to be clear and definite definitions of what neglect and lack of supervision are. All forms of abuse should be clearly defined, not based on the opinion of a social worker or supervisor who is burnt out or lives with a silver spoon compared to those she is supposed to help and protect. If we as a society are going to insist on having these programs and services in place then we need to be responsible and have accountability for those who we give more power than even a court system. Protective services has the power of God and government in the hands of individuals who have no accountability for their choices or actions. 

  • It is not neglect to not have enough food because there isn’t enough money to live on.
  • It is not neglect to not provide new clothing and shoes when you can’t pay your electric bill.
  • It is not neglect to not have a spotless home when you are taking care of your children and supervising them supercedes washing the dishes because a worker may show up.

Parents can not be on guard for their children 24/7, 365 days a year. An accident should not be cause to charge a parent with “lack of supervision” by the county. The system has been allowed to grow way out of proportion for what it was intended to do. As a society we need to reign it back to what it was intended for and make it accountable to the family court system in order to allow it to work. There should be no registry available to tag individuals as abusers solely based on the opinion of a worker who wasn’t given a warm welcome by the parents.
We want reform, we expect to have our rights be protected. We want children and families protected. We demand it is done legally and fairly.

Infant Stolen from Hospital

May 22, 2010 in Kidjacked, Oregon, parent-child relationship, parental rights

I gave birth to my son on April 4, 2010. On April 5 2010, child protective service workers came to my hospital room and took my newborn son into custody.

Let my baby go!

I received the petition on April 6, 2010 and the basis for taking my child from me, was my bi-polar disorder and a no-contact order between me and my fathers child, which shouldn’t have been in place to begin with.

I am in Coos Bay/North Bend, OR. My first court date was on April 7, the next was held on April 19. I have one coming up on July 1, and they are already planning on adopting out my son. There was no abuse or neglect allegation and so far, I am only allowed to have one visit a week.

At my last visit, my son had a dirty diaper before he was even brought in to see me. My son is a little over a month old and I need to be able to get to know my baby. I am perfectly capable of taking care of my son and I need help.

I want my son back so he knows that I love him. Can anyone help me?
