Lawsuit Misinformation on the Internet

February 12, 2012 in child abuse, corruption, family court, lawsuit

When we announced our lawsuit against Child Services, we created quite a “buzz” on the internet. Over the last month we have had the opportunity and good fortune to speak to and help hundreds of families who have been harmed by Child Services.

If you have been the victim child services and wish to have your case reviewed by an experienced attorney please fill out our child services questionnaire.

We believe the nationwide pandemic involving Child Services and their tendency to wrongfully remove children is atrocious, shameful and unacceptably vast. We feel that our panel member attorneys’ lawsuits may be the first steps toward ending this disgraceful “kids for cash” system and holding the organizations who continue to harm loving families accountable.

As we construct these lawsuits, our number one goal is to reunite good families across the country.  RepresentYou.com and our panel member attorneys will also try to make sure that these families and their children are compensated for any and all harm on the part of Child Services, the foster care system and/or if a family was not offered a fair trial.

We have received reports of misinformation about our company and our panel member attorneys. Both RepresentYou.com and our panel member attorneys are held to extremely high ethical and professional standards to comply with our licenses and certifications with the State Bar of California. We feel this misinformation is a result of our panel member attorneys not being able to accept the cases of everyone who has contacted us. If an attorney does not accept a case, this does not mean that a case is without merit and this can be due to many factors. The situation that victims of Child Services find themselves in is truly horrendous, and we endeavor to do our best to empathize with all who contact us.

It is unfortunate, however, to note that due to the fact that a lawsuit is a complicated and delicate process, we sometimes are not able to fully offer our services to all who contact us. Many people who do not directly meet the specific criteria for this lawsuit have threatened to “bad mouth” the company and our motives and to otherwise spread misinformation out of anger, spite, and any other resulting emotion. We regret wholeheartedly the fact that we are, as are all other lawyers, law firms, and legal services, sometimes unable to help, however spreading deliberate misinformation to the public only serves to deter other families from contacting us and possibly having their children returned or receiving compensation. When this occurs, the only end result is the further hurting of families that otherwise could have been helped.

Our panel member attorneys are some of the few in the country who have been successful in bringing legal action against Child Services and, as a result, have helped children return home to their parents. Child Services and the Government have created extremely strict legislation in regards to being sued and this is the reason that our panel member attorneys are only able to bring legal action for 3 specific reasons:

  1. Lawsuit One: Wrongful removal of children and reasonable efforts to keep a family united. This lawsuit has two basic foundations: children were removed from a good home and put into foster care without just cause and Child Services did not make a reasonable effort to preserve or unify families.
  2. Lawsuit Two: A family was not offered a fair trial. This lawsuit has two basic foundations: children were removed from a good home and put into foster care without just cause and the family was not given an opportunity to fight for their child in court.
  3. Lawsuit Three: Foster care abuse. When a child is placed in foster care, there is a reasonable expectation that a child will be safe from all forms of harm and abuse. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It is remarkably far too common that children are removed from a stable home only to be seriously neglected and abused in foster care. If your child was placed in a group home, emergency shelter, foster home or residential care home and was abused or neglected in any way, you may have a lawsuit.

Our panel member attorneys would like to continue their ongoing policy of imposing no upfront costs to families who have been victims of Child Services and additionally there is no cost to families for using our service. We refer clients to lawyers at no charge and the lawyers can sue on behalf of these potential clients on a contingency fee basis.

Lawsuits against Child Services are normally accompanied by a great number of expenses, all initially assumed by the attorney. As there are no upfront costs to clients, multiple plaintiffs sometimes need to be assembled so that an attorney can justify the great cost of traveling to a specific area and handling  such cases on a contingency fee basis, while paying all related expenses.

Please Inform Victims About These Lawsuits

* If you have a website, write about these lawsuits or copy and paste (please use quotations when copying our content) our lawsuit information and link to our website.

* Help other victims get help from us at not cost to them. Use your Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter and other networking tools to communicate with those who have been harmed by Child Services. Please like us.

* Next time you are at the courthouse, ask those around you if they have been victims of Child Services.

* Use the fliers on our website to spread the word about our lawsuits.

* Email our Child Services information form to other victims.

Once we gather enough plaintiffs in a specific area, the victims of Child Services will be contacted by one of our RepresentYou.com panel member attorneys or their staff about their individual legal matter.

These lawsuits are nationwide and are not class actions, our panel member attorneys plan to sue on behalf of individual plaintiffs who have been victims of Child Services or the foster care system.

RepresentYou.com has met the stringent criteria required for certification by the State Bar of California, and as such, we are here to help. Even if we cannot directly be of assistance, we are always a good source of information and our only allegiance is to the client, not to any organization or Child Services, as some have alleged.

If you have any questions please read our Child Services Lawsuits FAQ and please do not hesitate to contact us at anytime at 1-888-973-7968.

Saving Isaiah

July 24, 2011 in corruption, DCFS, drugs, Florida, medication, neglect, parent-child relationship, parental rights

Lier Mental Hospital #2

This evening I watched Saving Isaiah again, about a little boy who was adopted out after his crack addicted mother threw him out like garbage. When the adults stopped fighting over him, we were left to believe all was well. We all hope and pray that Isaiah has a happy ending.

When I decided to share Saving Isaiah with my Facebook friends, I found another Saving Isaiah that both shocked and horrified me. Though to be honest, Isaiah’s story doesn’t surprise me.

COMMITTED TO MENTAL WARD AT 6

Psychiatrists diagnosed Isaiah with post-traumatic stress disorder, a mental problem first studied in Vietnam veterans. He had night terrors and trouble sleeping. He flinched when a cashier at a water park asked him to wear a plastic bracelet to show he had paid. It triggered his memory of a hospital ID band.

Cheryll believes her son also has reactive attachment disorder, a problem in which early traumas prevent children from bonding normally with their parents. She wanted to take her son to one of the national centers that train parents to help severely disturbed children.

Nearly every day, Cheryll hounded DCF officials for the money. When she felt administrators were patronizing her, her temper came quick, like a sudden slap.

The state wouldn’t pay for the special treatment, but it did provide a psychiatrist, an after-school program and a therapist who came to the home to work with Isaiah nearly every day. In the summer after his kindergarten year, the state paid his tuition to a summer camp for emotionally disturbed children.

Isaiah believed that the entire world was out to hurt him. In his mind, even is mother could not be trusted and the state, predictably, does exactly the wrong thing to help this innocent child. They locked Isaiah up in the most terrifying place on earth and began to torture Isaiah with needles.

I can relate to his terror and I have to wonder how any parent can be so stupid. I am convinced that the mother is not without blame, but the story doesn’t give us those details.

When I was 8 years old my appendix burst and I was hospitalized for three weeks. It was touch-and-go for the first few days, they had inserted a drain tube to help drain off the poison that threatened to claim my life. Obviously, I made it through the ordeal…but at what cost?

I was given 3-injections daily for those 3-weeks, to help fight the poison, my drain tube was checked through-out the day as well and my dressings changed. I was in good hands, the staff, for the most, part treated me well.

I was really out of it for the first 3-days, then for the next 7-days I was terrified. I lived in total and constant fear. I was afraid to move the wrong way, for fear my guts would fall out. I knew they had cut me open, I knew that they had to clean my wound often but not a single person bothered to tell me that I had staples in my stomach. I didn’t find out until the doctor was half-way through removing them and I had the courage to ask him what he was doing.

Everyone was so busy “doing their job”, that no one considered actually letting the patient in on the process. You would be surprised at what very young children can understand. I was quite shocked one day, when someone I know well was babysitting a friends child. The child was acting out and instead of talking to the 18-months-old child and explaining things this person yanked the items out of the child’s hand, claiming that the child was too young to understand. Poppycock.

Children in the womb can understand love and affection. My grandchild used to really get moving around when I would read or sing to my daughter-in-laws swollen tummy. Children of all ages are very perceptive and can understand much more than we give them credit for. This case is especially difficult because the mother is a single mom. Raising a child is hard enough when you have two loving parents working together, but nearly impossible to do all alone.

This family needs your support.

Please contact Kathleen Chapman for details on where to make a donation to help Isaiah and his mother. This child needs specialized help and nothing less will do.

How to Attract Media Attention!

July 6, 2011 in biological parents, corruption, due process, Event, family rights, justice, Kidjacked, parental rights

US Navy 030322-N-6477M-003 Local residents tak...

This Navy man has the right idea!

I wasn’t too sure starting a Kidjacked Facebook page was going to be a good idea but it’s been working incredibly well. People are asking questions and interacting to share valuable information, they are organizing state and local groups.

Just today a good question was asked on Facebook

How do you go about getting the media involved or filing a lawsuit?

Please someone help me I have been fighting to get my daughter back for over three years. No allegations of abuse or neglect – I simply left my daughter with my husband and they told him they could take her on the basis that we were married after she was born and he didn’t have proof of paternity on him.

We are still in a suspended TPR/reunification after taking their ‘deals’ of not going to trial earlier with the promise she would come home 2 years ago.  I need my daughter home!  The potential adoptive mother met her in her daycare.  Isn’t that illegal, if she wasn’t a foster/adoptive home beforehand, and isn’t related to her?  That is a law I know for sure in some states.

Please help me they lie and lie and lie to me and refuse to let her come home, when they are the ones preventing her from coming home, there has never been one safety issue whatsoever.

Several responses were offered up for the desperate mother. I offered up my own response to address a portion of her question, “How do you go about getting the media involved?”

  1. Write a concise article, detailing the facts.
  2. Have a trusted well-educated friend or acquaintance proof read it for grammar & spelling.
  3. Write a press release – paying attention to length.
  4. Write a brief introduction and collect names, email addresses and phone numbers of media people. Be sure to check for recent articles on the topic and contact a reporter who is interested in these type of “human interest” type stories.
  5. Then just keep at it. Once you have good copy and a good list, it’s simply a matter of numbers.
  6. Then post your story to your own blog at my.kidjacked.com and share your blog with the world. I’m happy to feature any well-written blog on Kidjacked home page and the news sections.
  7. You can’t skip any of these steps if you wish to have the best chances of success. We have resources within the CPS reform community, to help make your story a headline but we must be smart about it.

The system only works as well as it does by making us feel isolated and alone. The powers that be (CPS, Family Court, etc…) like to keep us fighting an uphill battle for as long as they can. Some people get angry and refuse to cooperate, often only making matters worse for themselves and their children. Once you begin to recover your strength (after their one-two punch) and begin to work your case, you should begin to look for support.

United we stand, divided we fall. We can’t stand alone, we must have a strong support community and that is exactly what we need to build.
