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.

Are you a sociopath?

October 18, 2011 in caseworker, Child Protective Services, DSS, parent-child relationship, parental rights

I would like to publicly thank Carolynn Middleton for posting her letter: Caseworkers- Are You Contented? We’ve all asked ourselves the same questions, in a nutshell we want to know what kind of animal could be so cruel to another human being?

I would like to print this letter off and get it into the hands of every caseworker in America.

Caseworkers- Are You Contented?

We all like to think of ourselves as righteous, noble, honorable, and ethical, with dignity and self respect. But, in cases where there is no abuse/neglect, or where indications of abuse/neglect are quite questionable, how do you sleep at night. How do you live with yourself knowing that, earlier in the day you tore a family apart? How do you look at yourself in the mirror in the morning, knowing that you apprehended a child(ren), taken them away from their parents, and left a family devastated, and maybe you really didn’t need to?

Think for a moment…

Whether you are a religious person or not, this is a pretty good Personal Rule, “Do onto others as you would have done onto you.” With that in mind, how would you feel if someone came along and hurt your children, your spouse, and your family, without good reason, even though they may have thought they had good reason?

In many or our planet’s animal species, the mother will die trying to protect her offspring from would-be predators. I know there are cases where children need to be taken into custody to protect them. 

But what about all of those children who’ve been apprehended who don’t need to be?

  • Are you a narcissist?
  • Are you a sociopath?
  • Do you take delight in causing someone else pain?
  • Or is it that you just don’t think about it?
  • Or is it that you really don’t care?

I know many people who got into the field of social work because they wanted to help others. That is a very noble sentiment. But how does unnecessarily devastating a family and tearing it apart, help? How does dragging parents into court and through a long and drawn out bureaucratic process help? Certainly if a child is being seriously abused/neglected- then they need your help, and the important thing here is to try and help them.

But many foster homes are either inadequate or run by people I wouldn’t trust to care for my pet rock. [Continue Reading…]

Whether you mail it, email it or hand deliver it, doesn’t matter. What matters is getting CPS Agents to examine their own motives. I’ve personally spoken with caseworkers, investigators, even supervisors who staff child protective service offices and many of them are feeling guilty about the work they do. Any worker worth their salt knows she is causing more harm than good.

Perhaps, we can give them a little shove in the right direction. This is not about simply collecting a paycheck. We are dealing with the lives of millions of children. The entire makeup of the country is being changed – hardly a single life has been left untouched by the vultures at the Department of Health and Human Services. The family unit is being destroyed and our nation will never be the same.

We should refer to this generation as The Lost Generation. You don’t have to be a statistician to realize the significance of the numbers. I am involved with family rights issues on a daily basis. I consider myself very informed on the issues and these numbers even freaked me out. I’m devastated by these numbers. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

DCFS and Rett Syndrome

October 4, 2011 in Adoption, Arkansas, corruption, DCFS, foster care, foster parents

Who will stand up and speak out against the power hungry DCFS workers in Little Rock, Arkansas? Even children with Rett Syndrome deserve parents! Why would the state prefer to warehouse children in an institution? It doesn’t make any sense. Read Jill’s story…

My daughter’s foster home closed this past week, due to some paperwork she had not turned in. I am by no means excusing this, as she has acknowledged she was in the wrong.

Official seal of City of Little Rock, Arkansas

Little Rock DCFS, Out of Control!

She and her husband were in the process of adopting three girls. The attorney for the 14 year old requested a hearing; the judge gave custody to my daughter and son in law. The judge said he was displeased with how DCFS had handled the case.

They removed the 4 year old from their home on Thursday; and placed her in an institution, located in North Little Rock. She suffers from Rett Syndrome, a severe form of autism, and she is unable to speak. They removed the six year old on Friday morning, and placed her in another foster home.

My daughter was told she could not speak to, nor assist with the transition of the four year old. My daughter is the only one who has cared for this child in three and a half years. She has fought the state on numerous occasions to get the training needed to care for this child.

DCFS also failed the children. The 14 year old met with her caseworker once – six months ago – the day before a court hearing. The next day, in court, the caseworker did not know her name, age, or where she went to school. Caseworkers, by law, are required to visit children on a weekly basis — no one has been in the home to check on any of the children in six months.

When we were in court, the DCFS workers were sitting directly in front of us, they talked about my family, knowing we could hear every word they uttered. One made the comment that she had wanted to close this foster home since last November. However, they placed another child in the home just this past spring.

The agency has opposed the adoption of the four year old because of her disability. They say she is better off in an institution.

We love this little girl and do not feel she is a burden at all. My daughter and son in law asked to proceed with the adoption of the four and six year old. They even offered to waive any stipend the state would pay, but the state workers declined. Maybe it is the position of the state that all handicapped children should live in an institution?

I believe these children belong in a loving home with friends and family to call their own. What the state is doing is wrong.

Learn More About Rett Syndrome

WebMD Medical Reference

Rett syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that affects girls almost exclusively. When boys develop the Rett syndrome mutation, they die shortly after birth.

What Are the Symptoms of Rett Syndrome?

Although it’s not always detected, a slowing of head growth is one of the first events in Rett syndrome. Loss of muscle tone is also an initial symptom. Soon, the little girl loses any purposeful use of her hands. Instead, she habitually wrings or rubs her hands together.

Around 1 to 4 years of age, social and language skills deteriorate in girls with Rett syndrome. A girl with Rett syndrome stops talking. She develops extreme social anxiety and withdrawal or disinterest in other people.

Rett syndrome also causes problems with muscles and coordination. Walking becomes awkward as girls develop a jerky, stiff-legged gait. A girl with Rett syndrome may also have uncoordinated breathing and seizures.

Treatments for Rett Syndrome

There are treatments available for Rett syndrome. Rett syndrome treatments focus on helping a girl live the best life she can with the condition. Physical therapy can help improve mobility in these children. Speech therapy may help somewhat with language problems. Occupational therapy helps girls perform daily activities — like bathing and dressing — independently.

Experts believe that therapy can help girls with Rett syndrome and their parents. Although a “normal” life may not be possible, some improvement can be expected with therapy. Participating in activities — including school — and improved social interaction are sometimes possible.

Alaska’s War on the Family

August 16, 2009 in Alaska, child abuse, CPS, false accusation, family court

My Child Lives in Fear!

I really need some help here. I have been accused of fracturing my infant’s skull, although I have reports saying that doctors don’t suspect child abuse.

Office of Children’s Services (OCS) took away my kids after I tried to protect them by sending them to Washington, to be with a woman who adopted my son.

Now they are in a foster home in Washington waiting to be sent back up here. Mind you they are 2 and 3 months old. CPS in Alaska has lied in court telling the judge they have no information on the person who had my kids — when just the day before they had talked to the CPS worker down there, who said the kids were safe and well taken care of.

Please point me in the right direction. I do have a past CPS history but I didn’t hurt my baby. Please help!
