Federal VS State: Follow the Money

August 31, 2013 in corruption, CPS, investigation, Michigan

Many people are confused by just who has the ability to change the laws.  One reader wrote in:

My US Senator just emailed me. She said that CPS is a state agency and she has nothing to do with them. She ignores the fact that US Legislators passed Social Security Title IV, which in part, pays CPS to remove a child, even if there is no evidence of abuse or neglect. She also ignores the fact that Title IV also rewards each state that has a certain number of adoptions above the quota.

How do those states get enough children to adopt above the quota? They take them.

She also ignores studies, by agencies within Health and Human Services, a federal agency. The studies prove that more children are abused, neglected, raped and murdered in CPS “protection,” than are those left at home with their parents. Also, studies have shown that over time, children left at home fare better emotionally and psychologically, than those removed and placed in the system.

Maura Corrigan bragged about receiving a large adoption bonus from the State of Michigan. She also stated that Michigan returns 50.1% of children removed from the home. I find it hard to believe that 49.9% of parents are that bad that they can’t or won’t do what CPS requires for their return. What actually happens is that when a parent fulfills a requirement, CPS adds more requirements. Then CPS delays setting up a parenting plan, then tells the court the parent has not met deadlines; deadlines that were never established. Or, CPS brainwashes the children into believing their parents never wanted them.

CPS kidnapping is both a state and federal issue. We have to enforce current laws that CPS ignores. We have to change unjust laws that protect corrupt CPS workers, police and courts. We have to change laws that allow people to falsify CPS complaints and get away with it, while the family is destroyed.

This is a common misconception.  Your congressman was right.  The Senate doesn’t have much to do with HHS or CPS. You need to contact your U. S. House Representative, they approve the funding and hold the purse strings.  The states make policy, legislators make law.

Your senator can call for a hearing and investigate but they rarely do.  If CPS breaks the laws, it is the house who has the power to investigate and change things.

Catch More Flies

January 1, 2013 in CPS, DFS, family court

A determined young lady has written dozens of e-mails over the past couple of weeks – many of them were simply horrendous (sorry girl). This letter was written in response to one of them.

Dear Friend,

I have provided links, advice and legal resources on Kidjacked. My phone and e-mail are being blown up with requests for help and questions galore. I am sorry but I do this in my spare time and frankly I don’t have much of that.

I maintain over 200 websites (both ours and our clients websites) — my husband and I work from home. The only money I make from Kidjacked comes from the ads that are found on each page (and we only get paid when someone actually clicks on an ad – DO NOT click ads to make us money, though, only ever click the ads you’re actually interested in).

Where are all the kids?

Where are all the kids?

I wish that I could do this full-time and be there to walk everyone through the steps they need to take to fight their cases, but the fact is I simply don’t have that kind of time and most people can’t afford to pay me for it. I have never asked anyone for a dime for myself or my family — and we are not wealthy. Heck, we drive a 1999 vehicle that we will drive until the tires fall off.

I will offer you my best advice:

  • When e-mailing your lawyer, your caseworker and others, it is crucial that you avoid threatening them in any way, no matter how badly you want to serve them their head on a platter.
  • Each and every letter or e-mail should be checked for spelling, grammar and content. (Put your best face forward.) This information can and often is presented in court and can be used against you.
  • Grandma always said you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Your letters and telephone calls need to be eloquent, yet firm. There is always a way to get your point across without being crude and insulting. Practice until you get it right!
  • Enlist your friends and relatives to help with your research. Have someone else read your letters before you send them off and edit them if necessary. Censor yourself. Seek the council of others who have fought the system and won their case. Don Lyons fought and was able to get his children returned. He wrote a book about it. Purchase or borrow books like his. [Get the book now: Kids For Money]
  • Form local support groups [Use the box under the calendar to select your state, then scroll to the bottom of the page.]
  • Picket your local court. Hand out pamphlets; they are easy to create. Be sure to include the URL to Kidjacked.com. Spread the word and join with others.
  • Request letters of recommendation from friends, family, professionals (doctors, pastors, co-workers) who know you and your family; present them in court. Make copies for your attorney and caseworkers.
  • Know the laws in your state. Become an expert in CPS guidelines and regulations. File an official complaint when those laws and guidelines are violated. Each State or County has their own regulations they are required to follow. The only way to force an investigation is to file an official complaint. Often the complaint procedure is available online, if not you must request the information directly from CPS — they are required by law to provide it to you.
  • Most county agencies have an “ombudsman” you can contact to assist you. Some are helpful and other are not. It’s worth a shot to try.
  • If you discover CPS agents are not in compliance with the laws in your state (or county), you can contact your congressman. The U.S. House of Representatives is responsible for oversight of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Visit the website, locate your representative by using the list or search functions on the site. Call their office, ask to speak to the aide who handles DHHS issues. Briefly explain your situation and the violations that have occurred. Do not go into your entire case history.The aide will request you fax or mail your supporting documentation and a release form, which allows the aide to investigate your allegations. Requesting an investigation is often enough to force CPS to clean up their act because they will receive notification that they are under investigation along with the allegations made against them.
  • You’ve heard it said the squeaky wheel gets the grease. It’s true. Be polite and be firm, but don’t stop. If you can turn up the heat on CPS workers, they will often dismiss their case against you out of pure frustration and fear. You must make it more costly to keep your children in custody or harass you than it is for them to send them home and leave you alone. This means keeping on the pressure.

I have spent over an hour writing this e-mail. I will be posting it on “Jacked Up,” the Kidjacked blog in hopes that this information will be helpful to others.

I wish you well in handling your case. Please send me an occasional update (written “ready to post”) and I will be happy to post the information to Kidjacked, in hopes that the information will provide encouragement and details that will assist other parents in gaining the return of their children. None of us can do it all alone but if we each pitch in and do our part, we can make a difference.

This is my small part.

Best wishes!

Congressional Hearing Needed

August 20, 2009 in Arizona, child abuse, Child Protective Services, CPS, neglect

Mesa, Arizona — A 6-year-old little boy was taken from his home by CPS caseworkers, while he was being watched and supervised by his grandfather, a retired LTC USA. His mother had raised him for 6-years, alone as a single mother. False allegations were made to Child Protective Services, by his unwed, absentee, father so, CPS classified it as a dependency case, now the child has became a ward of the state.

This child was never abused in any way; he was a perfect example of a child that was very loved and cared for by his mother. Once they take your child, it is pretty much over. They require you to go to their doctors and programs for months spanning into years.

The mother only sees her child 4-hours a week, even though the Foster Care Review Board says the child should see the mother more often. CPS ignores any requests. There is no accountability and the time ticks away.

My Child Lives in Fear!

Now this perfectly good little boy is going to counseling. They are using tax dollars sending both the mother and the son to counseling sessions with different psychologists, when if they would have just left the child in his home, he would have been just fine. There is nothing to do. This organization acts as if they are God.

In all of my life I have never seen such a travesty and I truly think that CPS in Mesa, Arizona should be looked at for taking little children from their home that never should have been taken from their home. It is kidjacking and this organization should be stopped. They are making huge mistakes and no one does a darn thing about it.

This child was taken by the CPS on July 25, 2008 and has been kept from his friends and his mother for over 8-months now and it will be a year before this is over if then. Someone has to do something about the Mesa CPS department. It is most horrible to see this child repeatedly cry for his mother.

Court Date: August 20, 2009

It is over in the Juvenile Court. This beautiful little child is being flown out to Utah from Arizona to a father who failed to parent him and has a history of drug and alcohol abuse. The court has removed him from a mother who never endangered him or neglected him, and was proven innocent in the court of those charges, yet CPS (Julie Weeks and Deborah Van Der Water) tried to prove for over a year that the child’s mother had a substance abuse problem.

When that did not work so they went the route of mentally ill and unfit and forced her to take medications in the hope she would get her child back. She did everything she knew how to do. CPS swept under the table the years of documentation of learning disabilities and discriminated against her and judged her because she does do things a little differently than the norm. However, she never abused her kids, not once and even in court it was said she was an excellent mother.

After 6-hours in the juvenile court the judge said the child will be going to the unwed dad in Utah, that failed in all of those 7-years to even call or send him a birthday card. This is a darn travesty like I never have seen. CPS of Mesa Arizona needs a congressional investigation and I hope advocates demand one immediately.

Child Protective Services are kidjacking innocent little children out of the arms of their mothers, who have been there for them and now have ruined two more lives; the mother who has an empty bed for her little boy, who will never come home; and a child who can’t understand why he can’t simply come home. He has no idea how to deal with that kind of pain.
