Bell County Texas Corruption

September 7, 2016 in corruption, Texas

Hi, my name is Travis. I’m a 40 year old father to a wonderful little girl, a small business owner and citizen of Bell County, Texas. As of now, we have paid $44,000 in legal fees out of our own pocket in our fight against Texas DFPS (specifically CPS in Bell County) and the corruption that is plaguing our community. We are preparing for a Federal civil rights lawsuit to address the constitutional atrocities which are occurring within our communities. In order to continue on, we need your help.

Those who know me, know that I’m a man of principle. My fight is not about money, it’s about stopping these crooked state and county officials who are destroying families within our communities and instituting reform within the Department of Family & Protective Services. I would like to see the creation of an independent agency, which has the authority to investigate grievances against any party involved in child welfare cases.

Standing up for our constitutional rights is a difficult and expensive endeavor. Most of those who have the desire to fight injustice, lack the financial resources to do so. DFPS’s attorney, Dallas Cornish, is well aware of this and has used Bell County tax payer’s hard earned money to fund a coverup of the wrongful removal of a child, which she ordered, and had no authority to do so. Several other parties have assisted her in this coverup. They have violated our state & federal laws and our constitutional rights. These actions have resulted in fear in our communities and a public distrust of our legal system. I want to see them all brought to justice, and with your help, we can make a difference.

Our case is fairly solid. On March 10th, 2016, I was at a car dealership waiting to go into the financial office to sign the paperwork, when I received a call from a friend of mine who I had asked to watch my daughter after she got home from school. My daughter wasn’t on the bus. I had my friend search the neighborhood and go by my daughter’s friend’s houses. When she notified me that no one had seen her, I immediately left the dealership and called the police. When I arrived home, the police were there and they were actively searching for my daughter. I called the school, but was unable to reach anyone. I’ll never forget that feeling. I thought my child had been abducted. I’ve never felt pain like that in my life, and to this day, I still cry when I think about it.

Hours later, by chance, the school’s principal had come in after hours, and he notified the officer who was searching the school’s grounds that CPS had taken my daughter. Why CPS didn’t notify me, my daughter’s sole caretaker, is beyond me. The officer contacted CPS and later CPS contacted me. CPS removed my daughter without a court order, exigent circumstances or allegations of abuse or neglect. Why? Because someone speculated that I might be using drugs. CPS never investigated that allegation, nor did they ever give me the opportunity to prove my innocence. They just took my daughter. I do not use illegal substances, but even if I had been, a positive drug test is not sufficient justification for removal, absent of allegations of abuse or neglect.

All of this could have been avoided if the CPS investigator would have done her job, came by my home and asked me to take a mouth swab drug test. The investigator, Edwynna Phillips, testified under oath that she never attempted to call me and that she came by my home on two specific dates (Federal law requires them to make a reasonable effort to prevent the removal of a child before doing so), but had she actually done so, she would have realized that I have home surveillance cameras. Even though this was an irrefutable case of perjury, the Court chose to brush that fact under the rug. They’ve probably used this same tactic on hundreds of other parents, but this time they got caught red handed. It’s now time to get justice for all of these families.

After my daughter was removed, I paid for a drug test out of my own pocket, at the collection facility that is contracted with CPS. The 10 panel test came back negative. The results were ignored by the court. I took 3 additional random drug tests over the following 3 weeks for CPS, all of which came back negative, yet they still refused to let my daughter come home. I was actually thrown out of the court for asking for my daughter’s return. It has been 6 months now. Why haven’t they given my daughter back? Well, that would be an admission of guilt on their part and that opens them up to liability.

They chose to do damage control instead of taking responsibility for their actions. They publicly tarnished my character, falsified documents, tampered with witnesses, committed fraud upon the court and even committed perjury and we have overwhelming evidence of it all. There is much more that I have chosen not to mention, out of respect for your time, and so, I will conclude.

If CPS has hurt one of your friends or family members, or if you just want to make a difference in the lives of others, consider helping us stand up to these tyrants. The damage they have done to my little girl and I is irreparable, but we might be able to prevent this from happening to other families in the future. Help us send a clear message to CPS & the Family Courts that this type of conduct will no longer be permitted. Thanks for taking the time to read about our cause and may the peace of our Lord be with you.

Help Us Send a Clear Message to CPS & the Family Courts

Disabled Parenting Discrimination in Family Courts

July 9, 2014 in due process, family court, family rights

I am a disabled parent who had five beautiful children. I was born at only 24 weeks gestation and had brain damage that caused cerebral palsy. I grew up enjoying a normal childhood in farming country, building dens, playing in hay stacks and having a free run of our village.

English: A collection of pictograms. Three of ...

A collection of pictograms. Three of them used by the United States National Park Service.

I married my childhood sweetheart at the age of 18, gave birth to a son. After five months, I took an evening job as a receptionist to support us as my husband went through university. A few years later and after giving birth to four more children and helping out in my husband’s electrical store, he dropped a bombshell, he didn’t want to be married anymore, he’d tied himself down too young by being with me. I thought at the time that was the worst day of my life but it was nothing compared to the custody nightmare that was about to follow. After obtaining a residency order in my favor, he locked me in our home and left with all our children, including my three week old newborn baby. I was absolutely frantic and called the police.

Police Discrimination

I showed them my court order but they informed me that as I had married the father of my children, all they were prepared to do was do a ‘safe and well’ check, despite the fact that my newborn was totally breastfed and dependent. After leaving, telling me rather curtly that ‘There’s more than one way to feed a baby’, I was forced to beg my ex-husband on the telephone for the return of our children. 24 hours later, he returned only my two year old and newborn, keeping my older children at an unknown location.

CPS Interrogation

From the moment the police had been called, CPS got involved and that was the start of a two year harassment campaign from them, most of it centred around my disability. They asserted incorrectly that I was not able to bath my babies because I had refused to answer what I viewed as discriminatory questioning about my parenting skills and I was told I had to consent to a social worker coming in to bath my children every day and if I didn’t, they’d be removed from me.

On one occasion they broke down my front door when I had gone out. People would turn up unannounced to ‘spot check’ me and they kept this up for a two year duration. I was court ordered to attend a parenting class but I refused to comply, saying that I had successfully cared for my children for years while my husband was working and didn’t need any classes. I asked why my able bodied husband was not asked to attend a class and I was told he didn’t need one as he didn’t have my disabilities.

On meeting me for the first time, the first words from the guardian ad litem’s mouth were “Oh goodness, how do you cope?” Not hello, or nice to meet you . I knew from that point that I was in for a rough ride.

Court Bias

When the case went to court, I discovered that the police had failed to honor my court order because ‘there were disability issues’. I was shocked and appalled that in the 21st century, people could still be deemed unfit to be a parent because they are disabled.

By the time all the interviews had been conducted, more than seven months had passed so when it finally went to court, the judge said the older children had been with their father for months and it would be cruel to move them so he awarded him custody – a delay that only happened because of the fact that I had to prove myself fit to parent and as a disabled woman I had higher standards to meet than your average able parent.

Fast forward a whole decade and my ex-husband was still pursuing me through the courts for custody. After being diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis in 2010, my health deteriorated. I had to have major surgery. This was brought up in court and it was asserted I was not ‘fit’ enough to be a mother, despite having hired help. I was also accused of abusing prescription drugs because I had to take medications. It was inferred by the Guardian ad litem that my children may be acting as ‘carers’ for me, in spite of my assistant’s employment with me. Shockingly, the court allowed all these accusations to be levelled against me. I was informed I had to answer questions about my disability because my health was the reason my ability to parent was under scrutiny.

I was allowed to keep my two youngest children but I shouldn’t have had more than a decade of my life trying to defend my right to be a parent just because I was born disabled.

No Disabled Parents Rights

I found out that there is no law to protect the relationship between a disabled parent and their children. The American’s with Disabilities Act doesn’t have a section on parenting and two thirds of dependency statutes allow a court to determine that a parent is ‘unfit’ on the basis that they are disabled.

Disabled parents frequently struggle to retain custody and are the only group of people where it is legal to discriminate against them. Up to 80% of parents with an intellectual disability will have their children removed. For physical disabilities the rate is 40% or higher and for those with physical disabilities going through custody disputes, 13% will be treated unfairly on the basis of disability. Parents who have psychological disabilities such as bipolar disorder or anorexia will very often have their children removed if they come under the radar of the authorities. In addition – sometimes a disabled parent will be denied the right to any visitation because of court judgements that are stereotypical and the court assumption that children will be forced into ‘caring’ roles with their parent, a view that doesn’t support what researchers have found.

After my experiences I have launched an official complaint with the government and I hope to create amendments to disability discrimination laws so that child custody cannot be decided on the basis of disability. I also hope to outlaw interrogation about disability so that in the absence of any real child protection concerns, disabled parents shouldn’t have to ‘prove’ they can be parents.

TN: Marine Tells of CPS Lies!

December 23, 2013 in CPS

I am going out on a limb here and asking if your site has any recommendations. I have been a victim of the corrupt Child Protection Services out of Knoxville, TN.

We have a baby...for awhile at least

We have a baby…for awhile at least!

I am an Active Duty Marine and have fought diligently to remain a part of my son’s life despite being a state away. Over the past few monthly visits while my son is in my care, he had been repeatedly stating that he is being sexually and physically abused either by his mother or by someone who his mother knows.

I informed CPS in Knoxville about this and after conducting a 13 minute interview, they determined nothing was wrong and sent him home. Being a concerned parent and believing what my son said had merit, the last time he came to visit I informed my command and they got NCIS and CPS in the northern VA area involved which resulted in him being interviewed by a forensic team from Walter Reed Medical Facility in Bethesda, MD.

After an extensive interview, my son displayed what they called a personality shift and displayed knowledge of explicit sexual content, all stemming from what he experiences in his mother’s care. Of course the staff and myself were concerned and they advised that I take him to Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC, where, after a short 20 minute evaluation, they admitted him into the psych ward (mind you, my son is only 5, so this, to them, was a big deal) stating he was suffering from severe trauma.

CPS and local law enforcement from northern VA and DC got with CPS in Knoxville and they were astonished and disgusted to see that he had been evaluated prior but for only 13 minutes, leaving little time for discoveries.

After being admitted for a few days, I was forced (due to a standing court order parenting plan from Blount County, TN) to return him to his mother’s care. CPS in Knoxville informed me that they wished for me to dropped him off into their custody for further evaluation (I believe they were upset that another state’s CPS was stating that there was indeed some sort of abuse going on in his mother’s home).

I did this even though my court order states I am to drop him off to his mother at a pre-designated place. I agreed, hoping that they would finally take into consideration what the other CPS offices had found. I dropped him off and, upon exiting the building, noticed that my son’s mother had already arrived but was parked behind the office with her vehicle slightly concealed. I drove my vehicle to the back of the parking lot and within 4 minutes, my son was being escorted out of the back of the building with his mother, in her custody.

Both women who were advising me that another interview was going to be conducted were there as well. I was extremely worried for the safety of my son and approached the women on foot with my cell phone’s camera recording the entire incident. I asked them if there indeed had been a follow-on interview because I believe 3-4 minutes was not sufficient time to conduct one.

They refused to answer any of my questions and instead called the Knoxville Police Department. Upon their arrival, I explained the situation to the police and they wrote down the report number but there were no citations written as there were no laws broken. The police and the CPS workers allowed my son to leave with the same woman who he alleged had been sexually abusing him!

I called CPS the following day and the CPS worker who had been involved with the exchange had stated that there was never to be a follow on investigating that they wanted to ensure the exchange of my son did not involve any violence from me. I do not have a record whatsoever of violence, domestic violence, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, anything (again, I’ve been in the Marines for over 10 years with an exceptional record).

CPS took it upon themselves to involve them in this exchange, lying to me that an interview was to be conducted and then attempting to push him out the backdoor without my knowledge. They lied and manipulated me into going against court orders and my gut instinct as a parent and involved themselves in my exchange.

Furthermore, since the incident, I have had zero contact with my son or his mother due to a restraining order she has gotten and I just recently found out, through the courts in northern VA, that CPS in Knoxville has issued an ex parte no contact order against me toward my son! I have done nothing wrong and now it seems like CPS in Knoxville has a vendetta against me!

Is there any assistance or recommendations you might have that could help me fight back at the corrupt system that is CPS?  I have recorded phone call conversations, emails, and videos of the incident all saved and archived for review. I’m in the process of seeking legal help but all the lawyers in the east TN area do not want to take my case because “CPS is against me!”

I am at a loss and fear for me son’s safety! And now, amongst the holiday season, all my court order visitation has been stripped due to CPS’ involvement! Please help!

Respectfully sent,

Nevada DFS: LIES

December 22, 2013 in Child Protective Services, corruption, Nevada

My child was kidnapped by my ex-husband while he was being investigated for sexually abusing our toddler. The police said that the doctors opinions that the child had been assaulted wasn’t enough to make an arrest, they needed his DNA inside her, or a video of him committing the act.

CPS was called by the doctors, and the state of Nevada’s own state child therapist diagnosed my baby with PTSD, from a sexual assault that the therapist believed occurred at the hands of her father. The CPS caseworker said she had no case, and to stop wasting her time, she turned the investigation on me, then made a “substantiated findings of abuse and neglect” on ME, just from statements made by my ex husband.

I went all the way to the “Fair Hearing” and proved the caseworker had lied and neglected to do her job. They were COURT ORDERED to remove me from the “Child Abuse Registry.” DFS, and every other government agency says they can’t force CPS to do anything, despite the court order being ignored.

Now in retaliation they have recommended sole physical custody to my ex, and continue to harass me. I haven’t broken the law, or ever abused any of my children, (two are grown, one is younger and living in Texas with her God parents while I fight for my now five year old in Nevada).   They think they are above reproach, no matter what proof I have, or what a Hearing Master Ordered in a court order. They are ruining my life, and have kept my baby and I from spending one minute alone in three years. I’m exhausted, and emotionally spent. Can you offer any advice?

Sincerely,
Victoria Reynolds

The CPS caseworker Nicole Miller avoided needing a Judge to sign off on this and give me what’s known as a “family plan” (a parents chance to jump through hoops for the state, to reconnect with the child) by not having any reason to arrest me. So as I am not a criminal, I have still been given no attorney. Where as a rapist or murderer would be given an attorney by law if they could not afford one, but NOT a single mother working her way through school, neither arrested nor convicted of anything.

Can this REALLY happen?

Court Exposed: Wayne County, MI

May 26, 2012 in CPS, due process, family court, justice, Michigan

We put Wall Street men and women in jail when they defraud people of their money. Yet Judge Leslie Kim Smith thinks nothing of giving her clerk a stamp with her signature on it — to remove people’s children. And nothing is being done about.

What is wrong with this picture?

Families torn apart illegally? Heather Catallo investigates

University of Michigan Law Logo

By:  Heather Catallo

(WXYZ) – When protective services take children from their parents, state law  says a judge must first personally review the case and sign off. But that was  not happening in one of Michigan’s busiest courts.

It’s called “rubber stamping,” and last August 7 Action News first exposed  how court staff were literally stamping a judge’s name onto orders that allowed  the state to take kids from their parents.

After our investigations – the rubber stamping stopped – but no one has ever  been held accountable — not the judge, not the chief judge or child protective  services.

“Why was this allowed to happen in your court,” Catallo asked Wayne County  Circuit Court Judge Leslie Kim Smith.

Smith is the presiding judge at the James Lincoln Hall of Justice, the  county’s juvenile court. It was her name that had been stamped on removal  orders. And legal experts tell us, that stamp allowed children to be taken from  their parents illegally.

Testimony under oath in the Godboldo case revealed that caseworkers routinely  took their petitions to probation officers inside the court, who would then  stamp Judge Leslie Kim Smith’s name onto the removal orders.

“It is completely illegal,” said Joshua Kay a professor with the University  of Michigan Law School’s Child Advocacy Law Clinic

 

“This system is destroying the future of America.  And if something is  not done about it, we won’t have a future,” said Godboldo.

Maryanne Godboldo is now suing the state, Wayne County, and Detroit police  for illegally taking her child.

Please do some checking into your own case. If your case was rubber stamped, you can and should sue. (It is surely happening in more places than Wayne County, Michigan)
