Nevada: Wealthy Grandparents

December 22, 2013 in CPS, family court, Nevada

My grandson was Kidjacked!

The paternal grandparents are super wealthy and are most likely paying people off to get this baby to stay with them. Devastating to my daughter and myself maternal grandmother. He didn’t need CPS, but somehow it went from family court to me as safety for one week, then CPS and next thing they have him in their home.

Long story. Would love to share.

Makes no sense to me that they don’t have time for the kids that need intervention, while they are busy working this case and coming up with false accusations. I was the grandmother that watched him all the time on weekends, while my daughter worked and now I don’t get to see him for months.

The wealthy grandparents had no interest in him until their son lost temporary custody in family court. He has two other boys he can’t visit w/o supervision and doesn’t bother, but judge Porter gave him temporary custody until he got a DUI. He even failed drug test, same judges courtroom in 2012.

Meanwhile my daughter was on rx and marijuana card for migraines. Now she’s not getting visits and says ” she’s lost her soul.”  I can’t have him because of accusations of myself and daughter “dynamics.”  Nobody had even been around us but guardian ad litem.

Big Medicine and the Family Courts

November 20, 2011 in family court, family rights, justice, Maryland, medication

If you are dealing with the medical community and the family courts, this book is a must read. Readers describe the book as interesting, tragic, funny, compelling, amazing, and more. If you think you have problems, please know that you are not alone.

The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy:
(No One’s Ever Called Me Boring)

The Book Big Medicine And Family Court Does NOT Want You Reading

The Good, the Bad, and the CRAZY: (No One's Ever Called Me Boring)The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy: No One’s Ever Called Me Boring (Duke, M.D. Literary Enterprises, L.L.C.) by Mary Ann Duke, M.D., is the true story of a modern-day Joan of Arc who survived being burned at the stake by the male-dominated medical and judicial systems, and now dares to tell the unrevealed truth.

Mary Ann Duke was the epitome of a success story. She graduated from medical school at age twenty-three and became a board-certified ophthalmologist by age thirty. Her private practice in the prestigious suburb of Potomac, Maryland had a patient list that read like a Who’s Who of the Washington Metropolitan Social Register. Dr. Duke was granted privileges at the renowned John Hopkins’ Wilmer Eye Institute. Happily married, she lived in a gorgeous home with her husband and their three beautiful children.

That is, until the day she found her husband and best friend together and her perfect world exploded, sinking her into a pit of despair. This was the beginning of the end for Mary Ann Duke; the God-fearing, small town girl from upstate New York. She began drinking to ease her pain, and the alcohol, along with an untreated bipolar disorder, soon cost her everything…

The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy is packed with life lessons that come together in a mixture of spirit and guts, new-found wisdom and touching sorrow. This writer’s sharp wit and glorious sense of humor (especially when she describes being in jail with an alleged killer) makes her book a page-turner that is impossible to put down!

The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy not only chronicles the myriad challenges and prejudices a brilliant, young female doctor faces from both the medical and legal systems, but it also tells the very personal and moving story of her downward spiral into alcoholism; her private war with bipolar disorder; her fight for custody of her children, and the pain of incarceration. Yet the sheer determination and perseverance of this writer incites readers to cheer for her tenacious spirit that has proven no matter what the odds – she will never give up.

Dr. Mary Ann Duke’s electrifying book challenges the status quo and shamelessly avenges her honor. It is a story of social protest that will be read and revered for generations to come. The final pages of The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy are scanned medical and legal documents that prove the truth of her writing.

The Amazon description calls the book a blockbuster…

A blockbuster in the secret world of sexual discrimination. “The Good, The Bad, and THE CRAZY” is a riveting true story of a young woman trying to fulfill her childhood dreams of career and family, to be repeatedly gunned down by the medical and judicial systems. The author candidly writes of her joys and successes and also her divorce, despair into alcoholism, custody wars and even jail time, with guts and humor.

Dr. Mary Ann Duke’s perseverance is an inspiration to any one who has faced adversity or prejudice, and her amazing story is proven in a unique “Documentation” section.

Parental Responsibility

November 6, 2011 in Alaska, family rights, justice, parental rights, termination of parental rights, TPR, Visitation

Just exactly what rights and responsibilities do parents have to a child? We all know the laws concerning child support, child custody and visitation are unfair and unjust but still they persist.

Just today found on Lawyers.com was an interesting question:

To Terminate Fathers Rights, Or Not Too?

A military man and his wife of 4-years took the ex-wife to court for the military man to claim his parental rights to the child, because he has been paying $491 a month in child support, but has never had the opportunity to see his child. He has two other children in the home and he is serving his country in Afghanistan. [Continue Reading]

Rights?

Speak Out Against Injustice!

You would think an issue like this would be rare, but it happens all the time. Some cases are so egregious that it can make you crazy. For instance, I know of one man in his mid-30’s, he has 3 children by two different women. His first child was born to a wife of 10-years, he was ordered to pay over $700.00 a month in child support.

His two subsequent children were born of his relationship with his live-in girl-friend of several years. When they split the court ordered the father to pay $25 a month (for both children).

You simply can’t support 2 children on $25 a month, even if you assume both parents split the cost.

Instead, why don’t they use a regional formula, sort of like the ones they use to distribute welfare benefits and food stamps. The county office needs to figure out the average cost of caring for a child in their county and allocate half to each parent. Why should some children live very comfortably, when other children barely have food to eat?

There simply has to be a better way. A way that helps ensure the needs of the children are being met.

Divorce and the Children

July 30, 2011 in domestic violence, family court, parent-child relationship

With about two million people getting divorced every year in the United States alone, and one and a half million children affected by these divorces, there’s clearly an urgent need to get through this process with dignity, respect and compassion. Unfortunately, this does not always happen and, as a result, children suffer. It’s in the news everyday and transcends social class.

Divorce Happens – This Doctor Helps Protect The Innocence Of Children
And Teaches Parents How To Minimize The Damage

July 30, 2011 – Dr. Mark Robert Banschick designed The Intelligent Divorce book series and The Online Family Stabilization Course as a way to help divorcing parents avoid the common mistakes that end up hurting children during a divorce. The mission of the project is to teach parents how to raise well-adjusted children despite the pressures that divorce puts on everyone.

Video: “It’s Working Out”

A blueprint that every adult should use as they go through a divorce, The Intelligent Divorce advocates on behalf of kids through books, an online course, seminars and a media campaign. Based on hundreds of case studies, current research and decades of experience, Dr. Banschick teaches parents how to handle divorce with dignity, strength and intelligence.

The first book in the series, Taking Care of Your Children (2010), focuses on the well being of kids by teaching parents effective communication strategies that help them gauge how their children are doing with the divorce. And, if their child is in trouble, Dr. Banschick’s pragmatic approach teaches parents how to make a positive difference.

The second book, Taking Care of Yourself (2011), helps parents take control of their lives by handling anger, pain and anxiety more productively; learning about finances and healthier living; and dealing realistically with the world of attorneys, therapists and difficult ex-spouses. On this note, the third book, scheduled to come out in 2012, centers around Dealing with a Difficult Ex.

Mark R. Banschick, M.D. is a child and adolescent psychiatrist. The Intelligent Divorce project evolved from his work as an expert witness in custody disputes. Dr. Banschick has appeared on the CBS Early Show, The Ricki Lake Show, WCBS TV Morning News, and has been quoted in The New York Times, Divorcemagazine.com, firstwivesworld.com, and regularly contributes to the Huffington Post.

Dr. Banschick is currently working with a production company on a sample pilot television show designed to educate the public about divorcing with your children in mind, despite the difficult feelings and power struggles that come with the territory.

For the two million people divorcing each year in this country and the one and a half million children who are affected, The Intelligent Divorce is a project worth pursuing. As part of a public outreach effort, Dr. Banschick is open to media contact and interviews on topics of divorce and parenting.

For more information please visit Dr. Banschick’s website, www.TheIntelligentDivorce.com

Cathy Meyer, Founder, DivorcedWomenOnLine.com: “It isn’t merely a book; it’s a tool that anyone going through a divorce should be required to implement. It belongs on the desk of all divorce lawyers, judges, child psychologists, and every divorced or divorcing parent.”

Good News for Reform?

June 5, 2008 in CPS, family court

Pacific Justice Institute issued a press release yesterday regarding a recent California Supreme Court ruling, which could have an unintended result…

Good News for Reform Movement?

California Supreme Court Denies Rehearing and Stay of Gay Marriages

San Francisco, CA – The California Supreme Court today denied requests to stay its gay marriage ruling until the November election. The Court also denied requests to rehear the case.  The Court’s ruling makes clear that its previous ruling will become final at 5:00 p.m. on June 16. Gay couples will then be able to legally marry.

Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, had the following reaction, "The stakes are now even higher for the Protect Marriage Initiative in November. To date, the California Supreme Court has refused to respect the will of the people. In November, the people will have an opportunity to respond."

Just days ago, California’s Secretary of State confirmed that the Protect Marriage Initiative will appear on the November ballot. The initiative language is identical to the traditional marriage definition of Prop. 22, which was struck down by the state Supreme Court; however, this time the initiative is a state constitutional amendment, which would be much more difficult for the Court to overturn.

In light of the Court’s rulings, Pacific Justice Institute is communicating with pastors and churches throughout California to mobilize support for the Protect Marriage Initiative and to ensure that churches are legally protected as they continue to promote Biblical marriage.

While I’m not an advocate of so-called "Gay Marriage", this recent ruling could have the unintended effect of providing a boost in the arm to the CPS reform movement.

The problem faced today by most parents who find themselves up against the CPS behemoth is a lack of money. Federal statistics claim that same sex couples have much higher income levels on average than do heterosexual couples with children.

Once homosexual couples find themselves facing the family courts in significant numbers, we could reach the tipping point that finally turns the tables in favor of the parents and children. It’s simply an added bonus that courts today are loath to appear to discriminate against these unnatural unions.

In an article published on Mens News Daily, Jim Untershine had this to say…

Successful breadwinners of a same-sex household will be targeted by officers of the Family Court when their dependent partner is now forced to file for divorce. Instead of moving on with their lives, or amicably separating with conditions, the Family Court will now force the financial disclosure from both and attempt to establish a cash flow between them that is unfair enough to entice further litigation.

One must wonder just how successful the states policy of Kidjacking children will be against parents who actually have the money to mount a proper defense and hire the experts needed to turn the tables on CPS caseworkers and judges who have operated unchecked for many years now. Only time will tell!
