Kansas Court of Appeals To Hear a Child Custody Case Involving The Role of Case Managers (and other 3rd party interferers) in Child Custody Matters.

“Therapeutic Jurisprudence – The sociological and psychological research on families and child well-being impacts public policy and the issues of child custody in family law.

Also; the majority of ‘high conflict’ divorce case’s are Domestic Violence and or Abusive. Good parents 90% of them never have to go through the above, it is the 10 % the abusive ones or aka "High Conflict" that the above make their living on. Return the Judge back to the Court room, get rid of the non factual ‘opinion and belief’ of third party $ hand outs who block access to Justice/ e.g. the Judge.”

 

Kansas Court to Consider Case Manager Custody Case Appeal

TOPEKA — The Kansas Court of Appeals is set to hear a child custody case next month that addresses the role of case managers in custody matters in the state.

The case, which is scheduled for a May 15 hearing before the appeals court, involves Karen Williams, who lost full custody of her child in March 2011 after a case manager recommended to the judge that custody go to the child’s father. Williams said the decision to separate her from her daughter was made based on confidential conversations between the judge and the case manager.

Williams and her attorney argue that she has a constitutional right to a hearing in which the case manager must present the evidence to back up her custody recommendation and allow Williams to respond to it, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Monday.

"I’ve not been allowed due process, and I want a day in court," Williams said.

In Kansas, case managers, who work with parents in "high-conflict" relationships on their visitation schedules and custody, are appointed by judges and aren’t required to have a professional license.

"The only qualification currently is that a judge appoints them," said Ron Nelson, a Lenexa lawyer who specializes in family law.

Nelson said the use of case managers has been authorized for about 10 years, and concerns about them overstepping their bounds have mounted due to a lack of clear guidelines about their responsibilities and authority. He said the case management concerns are about non-judicial officers making custody decisions that should be the purview of the courts. .

The Legislature is also considering a bill requiring specific qualifications for case managers. It would restrict judges to appointing only licensed psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, therapists, social workers or lawyers.

Rep. Joe Patton, R-Topeka, a lawyer who serves on the judiciary conference committee, said he has "mixed feelings" about the bill.

"It’s certainly very important to have someone qualified," he said. "It’s very possible someone can be qualified without a particular license, but as a general rule we want someone qualified."

Cheryl Powers, the case manager on Williams’ case, declined to comment on the Williams brief with the hearing pending. But she said she believes the backlash against case managers is coming from a group of disgruntled lawyers.

"There are certain attorneys that are less than happy with the fact that some of us have quasi-judicial powers without a license," she said. "They’re attorneys and don’t have that much power. They are not happy with that."

PSYCHOLOGY IN THE COURTROOM? Time to get educated. We must change family laws and divorce policies that benefit fathers, mental health practitioners, custody evaluators, guardians ad litem, lawyers, judges, therapists, and others, while doing nothing to benefit children or women, child welfare, children’s education, or the next generation.

International Mothers' NetworkLess than a generation ago, married women in some U.S. states did not have the right to manage their own property, and all household property was deemed to belong to the husband upon divorce. More recently, it remained legal in some states for a husband to rape his wife. (Marital rape is still legal today in nearly every country in the world that bans abortion.)

In 1981, the Federal Work Incentive Program, three out of four of whose participants were women, was required by law to give jobs preference to men, who also received jobs paying an average of 34% more per hour.

The sociological and psychological research on families and child well-being impacts public policy and the issues of child custody in family law. The research frequently is misrepresented, and mis-cited by mental health professionals, lawyers, forensic psychologists and others, as well as interest groups lobbying for laws. Also review the sections pertaining to the issues impacted by the "therapeutic jurisprudence", such as child custody, parental alienation theory, research pertaining to child development, the subsection for research Myths and Facts in FAMILY LAW, and other family law issues. Also see the subsection on Child Custody in FAMILY LAW. The Therapeutic Jurisprudence index page contains links to recommended off-site locations as well as the on-site articles

  • Index: Therapeutic Jurisprudence
    This section of the website contains current public material from on-going research being conducted around the United States and in Canada by various scholars and organizations who are sharing findings, as well as links to articles and off-site locations on the issue of the harmful use of psychology and psychological theories in the family court systems. Therapeutic jurisprudence in the family courts, i.e. a "mental health approach to the law" substitutes the opinions of mental health practitioners for traditional evidence and decision-making procedures. Because these persons actually do not have any kind of "expertise" to opine this way, what originally was thought to be a helpful idea (in this medicalized and psychologized world) has become merely economic opportunism, harming not only the litigants and children in the system as well as the court system itself, but also perverting substantive and procedural law. It is not science, but compensated yenta-ism that has permeated the courts under the pretexts that engineering family affectional relationships is within the ability of mental health "science" practitioners to accomplish, and that this is an appropriate goal of the government, court system, and state police power because children "need" something it has to offer. See additional comments on this index page here.

    Reevaluating the Evaluators: Rethinking the Assumptions of Therapeutic Jurisprudence in the Family Courts

    THE CASE FOR ABOLISHING CUSTODY EVALUATORS  By Margaret Dore.

    Reevaluating the Evaluators: Rethinking the Assumptions of Therapeutic Jurisprudence in the Family Courts

    Child Custody Evaluations -therapeutic jurisprudence - custody evaluators - guardians ad litem - parenting plans - parenting evaluationThere is an evolving and worsening mess in the systems and procedures currently in place to determine child custody and perform child custody evaluations when parents disagree.

    This article discusses the minimum disclosures every child custody evaluator (also known as "parenting evaluator" or "best interests" guardian ad litem or GAL) [1], or parenting coordinator (herein called a "mental health professional" or "MHP") [2a] should be required to make, responding satisfactorily and in full, before being appointed in any family law case to do a child custody evaluation — in fact before doing anything beyond answering a list of limited, detailed, specific, and narrowly-crafted questions the answers to which are directly within the MHP’s field of proved expertise. This format is being used to help illustrate a problem, and with another purpose in mind. That purpose is to call for a revolt altogether against the notion of "therapeutic jurisprudence" — which has been proved to do little to benefit children, much to benefit the divorce industry, much to complicate and pervert our family laws, much to erode fundamental rights and liberties, and much to harm the families who become trapped in the system. There are many problems, of course. But they are symptoms. Step one is to get the agent of most of them out of our family courts. The Emperor has no clothes.

    Child Custody Evaluations -why custody evaluators' arguments about not turning over test data are wrongThere have been many calls for reform [2b], but for the most part, while they are admirable and well-documented intentions, they miss the boat; while they identify various problems and propose fixes in the system, they fail to identify and address the core reason the system is sick. Thus the proposals seek to treat only symptoms while failing to apply a cure to eliminate the disease.

    Contrary to the public perception, and the perception that those seeking lucrative appointments in the court system wish to convey, a degree in some field of mental health does not qualify the individual to perform work that consists of open-ended investigating, evaluating, recommending, or decision-making about other persons’ families and children. [3] What originally commenced, and was thought to be a good idea as a judge’s assigment of fairly narrow tasks designed to streamline fact-finding and protect individuals’ therapy records [4] (e.g. asking a social worker to do a home study, e.g. asking a psychologist to opine on the possible effects on functioning of a party’s known or suspected personality disorder or state of depression when mental health already is at issue) has burgeoned into a free-for-all in which a panoply of MHPs make work and involve themselves in the family court system at enormous cost and detriment to the parties with expensive litigation-exacerbating processes, trials-within-trials, experts and counter-experts, and inevitable referrals to additional MHPs (often cronies) for all manner of alternate dispute resolutions and sometimes endless (and often utterly unproven) therapies. [5]

    (1) Do you have a law degree or previous extensive experience as a law enforcement officer doing investigations, and if not, what qualifies you to do this work?

    The milieu in which the MHP will be working is the justice system, in which litigants have certain rights of due process [6] and in which decisions made in connection with one issue can materially affect a litigant’s position as to seemingly unrelated issues in the same case, and in which milieu, inter alia, centuries of jurisprudence have honed certain concepts involving what constitutes reliable evidence, burdens of proof, and other legal aspects bearing on the ultimate resolution of a case. [7] Sociologists, psychologists, and even real scientists by reason of their formal training tend to have little understanding of or appreciation for these legal concepts. [8]

California Highway Patrol Report

     

    Morning,

    I just want to share with you the problems our daughter and granddaughter are having with Los Angeles County DCFS.  On Sunday April 1 at 7:00 pm I will be on Straight Talk with John Narzarin (link http://www.straighttalkwithjohnjnazarian.com/ )I will be discussing the problems with Professional monitor Phyllis Block and DCFS violating policies, procedures, court orders,etc and continue to do so with no regards to our granddaughter’s safety and health.

    I myself never thought this could happen to my family, but here we are fighting to save our granddaughter who was raped by her father Jason Moncibais.  Our granddaughter continues to be molested and abused by Jason’s father Sal Moncibais and his wife Margaret (Killeen) Moncibais and DCFS is not doing anything to stop it.  In fact, they charged my daughter for emotional abuse, fabricated lies and had the judge drop the molestation charges against the father and asked for custody to be switched to the child abuser and molester father.  This is totally sick minded people and my tax dollar is paying for DCFS to punish my daughter and granddaughter…just sick

    I have also attached an email sent to Philip Browning who is suppose to be in charge of LA County DCFS, but I believe he is just window dressing,   Hopefully the file won’t be too big for most of you, where I will find a bunch of return emails.

    Subject: Los Angeles County DCFS Child Social Workers violating Laws

    TO: Philip L. Browning Los Angeles County Children and Family Services

    Phone: (213) 351-5600 Fax: (213) 427-6125

    E-mail: pinquiries@dcfs.lacounty.gov, pbrowning@childsupport.co.la.ca.us, Philip L. Browning finkld@dcfs.lacounty.gov, Paul Freedlund lmandel@bos.lacounty.gov, Lisa Mandel mayor@lacity.com, Antonio Villaraigosa

    Morning Mr. Browning,

    Los Angeles County DCFS Child Social Workers are violating Local Laws, Court Orders, DCFS Policies / Procedures and Violating my Daughter’s and Granddaughter’s rights as victim of crime in the California Constitution and the U. S. Constitution. Whether it’s the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) or U.N. Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959) they would be in the eyes of the world as violators of International laws. How can the United States dictate to other countries how to treat human beings when they don’t enforce their own laws at all levels of government?

    Los Angeles County Child Abuse and Neglect Protocol (ICAN) were developed for all agencies to work together quickly and efficiently to assure the protection, safety, and health an alleged child abuse and neglect. The Los Angeles County Child Abuse and Neglect indicated in their Mission Statement:

    “Protocol is promulgated to serve as a guideline for professionals countywide to protect victims of abuse, to maximize successful interventions, to hold abusers responsible and accountable for the harm done, and to prevent new victimizations.”

    I have sent to you the attached letter once before with no response from you concerning children’s court case CK90067and Jason Moncibais DUI Arrest report, which I have sent to various officials at DCFS and to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, but apparently they have no concerns in the regards to the continuation of our granddaughter being abused, molested and endangered by her father Jason Moncibais and the paternal grandfather Sal Moncibais and step-grandmother Margaret Killeen.

    Deviation from these guidelines will not promote protection to the children who are victims of abuse and neglect, our granddaughter is an example of that deviation.

    Please see the attached letter and I do have the California Highway Patrol Narrative/Supplemental dated February 4, 2012 and the Arrest Investigation report dated February 25, 2012. Please note the time when Jason Moncibais was tested for alcohol levels was over 2 ½ hours after he picked up our granddaughter at the LAPD Topanga Police Station and it was entered as .23 @ 1409 hrs .26 @ 1413 hrs and .22 @ 1417 hrs in the report. Blood Alcohol Count levels diminishes .015 per hour and just think what his BAC level was at the time when CHP officer Hines first observed Jason Moncibais driving into the church parking lot with our granddaughter in the vehicle, as high as .29 BAC @ 1210 hrs. My daughter requested for an officer at the front counter to check if Jason Moncibais was intoxicated and the officer refused to check him, because they do not want to get involved. LAPD at their finest moment, “Serve and Protect”

    CHP Officer Hines observed on 02/04/2012 at about 12:11 PM a white pickup truck drive into the parking lot and stop directly in front of the stairs where he was standing and saw a Hispanic male (Jason Moncibais) and a young female child.

    CHP Officer Hernandez observed the subject exit vehicle and he lost his grip and almost fell out of the vehicle. While the office was speaking with him he smelled the overwhelming odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath, his eyes were red and watery. Mr. Moncibais failed the pre-field sobriety tests.
