A. Introduction.

This article describes the practical realities of residential placement and scheduling (i.e., child custody and visitation) recommendations by court-appointed parenting evaluators and guardians ad litem. This article also questions whether given these realities, the practice of using such recommendations should be continued. At the very least, these realities suggest the need for reform.

B. The Evaluation Process.

Parenting evaluators and guardians ad litem investigate parenting arrangements and report back to the court with their recommendations.1Parenting evaluators are usually psychologists or social workers in private practice; guardians ad litem are often lawyers. Many, if not most, are hardworking and conscientious

1. Appointment.

Currently, it is not uncommon for evaluators/guardians ad litem to be appointed via nomination or suggestion.2 With this situation, attorneys can and do advocate appointment of evaluators/guardians ad litem whose views are compatible to their cases. For example, if a father claims that the mother is alienating him from the child, the father’s attorney might suggest evaluators known to believe that alienation is a dispositive factor for custody.

It is also permissible for attorneys to contact evaluators/guardians ad litem prior to appointment. Such contact is ostensibly to verify availability. Its real purpose can be to "test the waters" regarding one’s case. If the reaction is favorable, the attorney will move forward to advocate appointment. If the reaction is unfavorable, the attorney may look elsewhere. Certain attorneys also tend to work with certain evaluators/guardians ad litem. In other words, they develop business relationships. With these circumstances, the person appointed can be pre-aligned to one side.

2. Investigation.

Once appointment is made, the lobbying campaign continues. Each side provides the evaluator/guardian ad litem further information, often on an ex parte basis. This information can include hearsay and other materials inadmissible to a judge. The evaluator’s/guardian ad litem’s opinion is thus formed unfettered by the rules of evidence.

Evaluators/guardians ad litem also meet with the parents and the children. They may also conduct or commission psychological (profile) testing of the parents.

3. Report.

The results of the investigation, any psychological testing and recommendations of the evaluator/guardian ad litem are summarized in a report filed with the court.

In these reports, the evaluator/guardian ad litem may or may not rely on applicable law. This author has read multiple reports in which the law is ignored in favor of the evaluator’s/guardian ad litem’s favorite criteria. For example, this author commonly sees reports with the "friendly parent" concept as a determinative factor. The concept is not part of the Parenting Act and has been twice defeated in our Legislature.3 The author has also read reports in which recommendations are based on the evaluator’s own personal, social or cultural values, e.g., that the mother should not be designated primary parent because she "still" lives with her parents. The Parenting Act does not list this factor as relevant. Cf. RCW 26.09.187 and 26.09.191.

This tendency for evaluators/guardians ad litem to follow their own criteria has been documented in at least one reported decision. See: Gilbert v. Gilbert, 664 A.2d 239, 242 at fn.2 (Vt 1995) (describing survey results, including that "many [guardians ad litem] are not following applicable law"). This tendency is also documented in an article by Paul S. Appelbaum, M.D. He states:

When an evaluator recommends [a child’s placement] we are learning not about the relative capacities of the parties but, instead, about the relative values of the evaluators.

Paul S. Abbelbaum, M.D., "The Medicalization of Judicial Decision-Making", The Elder Law Report, Vol. X, No. 7, February 1999, p. 3, ¶1, last line.

4. Trial.

By the time of trial, the evaluator/guardian ad litem is in the position of defending his or her report and recommendations. Factors encouraging this phenomenon include the need of the evaluator/guardian ad litem to maintain his or her reputation, to thereby gain more appointments.

At this point, the evaluator’s/guardian ad litem’s recommendations can become more strongly stated, i.e., more "black and white". The recommended parent may thus be portrayed as more clearly "good" and the other as more clearly "bad". But the reality may be in the middle, i.e., that like all of us, neither parent is perfect.

At trial, the evaluator’s/guardian ad litem’s testimony typically includes hearsay previously provided by the parties.4  Repeated yet again, it can become grossly distorted–much like a story repeated multiple times as part of a children’s "telephone game".

Evaluator/guardian ad litem testimony can also include opinions on credibility.5  The author has seen as a basis for such opinions, a parent’s psychological profile, e.g., that a parent has an "elevated lie scale". The author has observed such testimony to be extremely prejudicial.6  In a seminar attended by this author, this same evaluator stated that a significant percentage of divorcing women, but not men have a "histrionic" personality disorder and that such persons "lie". She elaborated that histrionic women tend to "wear red" and be "the life of the party".

The above situation is quite different from the admission of an investigator’s testimony in other contexts. For example, an investigator in a criminal trial would not be allowed to testify as to his or her recommendations regarding conviction, as to hearsay, or as to his or her opinion on witness credibility.7

C. Judicial Reliance on Evaluators/Guardians Ad litem.

Most judges perceive evaluators/guardians ad litem as neutral investigators or advisors.8 Evaluator-psychologists can be held in especially high esteem.

With such status, their reports, testimony and recommendations can become the factual standard for trial. The burden of the non-recommended party is thus to disprove a factual standard. The burden of the recommended party is merely to provide corroboration for the standard. In Gilbert v. Gilbert, 664 A.2d at 242 §C, the Supreme Court of Vermont found such burden-shifting so unfair as to require reversal.

A related problem is the legitimization of improper evidence through the evaluator/guardian ad litem. In one record reviewed by this author, the evaluator testified that the mother’s family was "manipulative" and dishonest. On cross examination, the evaluator conceded that as a basis for her opinion, she was relying on unsigned written statements provided by the father. Had the father sought to admit these statements through himself, they would have been viewed as hearsay, lacking authenticity and self-serving. But admitted as they were through the evaluator, their thrust (manipulative/dishonest) was instead perceived as fact. Such "fact" was then incorporated into the court’s decision; the child was removed from the mother’s primary care.

There is authority in other states critical of such reliance on a guardian ad litem’s hearsay. S v. S, 571 N.W.2d 801, 809 (Neb. App. 1997), overruled on other grounds, states:

We see no merit in giving credence to the opinion of a guardian [ad litem] when that opinion is based in large measure on the very hearsay that our legal system holds to be improper.

There are also court rules limiting admissibility of a guardian ad litem’s report. Cf. Gilbert v. Gilbert, 664 A,2d 239, 241 (Vt. 1995) (regarding V.R.F.P. 7).

The law in Washington is, however, contrary. Fernando v. Nieswandt, 87 Wn. App. 103, 107-8, 940 P.2d 138 (1997) seems to state that a guardian ad litem’s recommendations and testimony are automatically admissible per RCW 26.09.220 and RCW 26.12.175. Given the realities described above, such carte blanche admissibility is ill-conceived. Regardless, Fernando’s reliance on 26.09.220 and 26.12.175 is misplaced. RCW 26.09.220(2) states that "the investigator’s report may be received in evidence", not that it "must" or "shall" be admitted. (Emphasis added). Similarly, RCW 26.12.175 does not address admissibility; it states that the guardian ad litem’s role is to "report to the court". "Report to the court" does not necessarily imply admissibility.9 Fernando’s reasoning has been otherwise criticized.10

D. De Facto Decision Making.

With the perceived neutrality of evaluators/guardians ad litem, their recommendations are often determinative.11 But as described above, evaluators/guardians ad litem are not neutral. Once they make their recommendations, they are in the posture of defending them; the "evidence" they rely on is inherently unreliable, the result of an off-the-record lobbying campaign.

With such circumstances, there has been some movement to eliminate guardians ad litem from child custody cases–at least where there are two parents available to litigate the issue. Seattle University Law Professors Raven Lidman and Betsy Hollingsworth state:

Most contested cases have no need for any court appointed individual. [We] submit … that such appointment more often undermines the normal functioning of the courts …

Lidman and Hollingsworth, "The Guardian ad Litem in Child Custody Cases: The Contours of Our Judicial System Stretched Beyond Recognition", George Mason L. Rev., Vol. 6:2, (1998), p. 261.

E. Advocacy of a New Paradigm.

In summary, evaluators/guardians ad litem can be hardworking and conscientious. There are, however, serious problems with the system. Its realities have little resemblance to an orderly determination of truth based on the evidence. It is time to reconsider this paradigm–for the sake of the children.

Prosecute for Witchcraft=Prosecute for Parental Alienation Syndrome

Women are witches= Women are Alienators

Yes the dark ages- are still here—again WOMEN and Children are being hunted tortured and interrogated and punished for-Parental Alienation just like -witchcraft

The main purpose of the Malleus was to attempt to systematically refute arguments claiming that witchcraft does not exist, discredit those who expressed skepticism about its reality, to claim that witches were more often women than men, and to educate magistrates on the procedures that could find them out and convict them.[5] Kramer was denounced by the Inquisition in 1490.[6]

The Main Purpose of Parental Alienation Syndrome is for men to take away abused mothers children- Usually so her can continue to rape his children and –burn his ex wife for daring to try to protect them or herself-  The Family Court Mafia  the HAMMER in PAS

Genesis

The Malleus Maleficarum was published in 1487 by Heinrich Kramer (Latinized Institoris) and James Sprenger (also known as Jacob or Jakob Sprenger). Scholars have debated how much Sprenger contributed to the work. Some say his role was minor[7] while others say there is little evidence for this claim.[8]

In 1484 Kramer made one of the first attempts at a systematic persecution of witches in the region of Tyrol. It was not a success, Kramer was thrown out of the territory, and dismissed by the local bishop as a "senile old man". According to Diarmaid MacCulloch, writing the book was Kramer’s act of self-justification and revenge.[9] Some scholars have suggested that following the failed efforts in Tyrol, Kramer and Sprenger requested and received a papal bull Summis desiderantes affectibus in 1484. It allegedly gave full papal approval for the Inquisition to prosecute witchcraft in general and for Kramer and Sprenger specifically.[10] Malleus Maleficarum was written in 1484 or 1485 and the papal bull was included as part of the preface.[10] The preface also includes an approbation from the University of Cologne’s Faculty of Theology. The authenticity of the Cologne endorsement was first questioned by Joseph Hansen but Christopher S. Mackay rejects his theory as a misunderstanding.[11] The Malleus Maleficarum drew on earlier sources like the Johannes Nider‘s treatise Formicarius, written 1435/37.[12]

The book became the handbook for witch-hunters and Inquisitors  throughout Late Medieval Europe. Between the years 1487 and 1520, the work was published thirteen times. It was again published between the years of 1574 to 1669 a total of sixteen times. Regardless of the authenticity of the papal bull and endorsements which appear at the beginning of the book, its presence contributed to the popularity of the work.

Folk belief in reality of witchcraft had been denied by the church in earlier centuries; Charlemagne had specifically outlawed the old practice of witch burning "in the manner of the pagans".[13] By the 15th century belief in witches was once again openly accepted in European society, but they typically suffered penalties no more harsh than public penances such as a day in the stocks[9] Persecution of witches became more brutal following the publication of the Malleus, with witchcraft being accepted as a real and dangerous phenomenon.[14]

Contents

The Malleus Maleficarum asserts that three elements are necessary for witchcraft: the evil-intentioned witch, the help of the Devil, and the Permission of God.[15] The treatise is divided up into three sections. The first section tries to refute critics who deny the reality of witchcraft, thereby hindering its prosecution. The second section describes the actual forms of witchcraft and its remedies. The third section is to assist judges confronting and combating witchcraft. However, each of these three sections has the prevailing themes of what is witchcraft and who is a witch. The Malleus Maleficarum can hardly be called an original text, for it heavily relies upon earlier works such as Visconti and, most famously, Johannes Nider‘s Formicarius (1435).[16]

Section I

Section I argues that because the Devil exists and has the power to do astounding things, witches exist to help, if done through the aid of the Devil and with the permission of God.[17] The Devil’s power is greatest where human sexuality is concerned, for it was believed that women were more sexual than men. Libidinous women had sex with the Devil, thus paving their way to become witches. According to the Malleus “all witchcraft comes from carnal lust, which is in women insatiable.”

Section II

In section II of the Malleus Maleficarum, the authors turn to matters of practice by discussing actual cases. This section first discusses the powers of witches, and then goes into recruitment strategies.[18] It is mostly witches as opposed to the Devil who do the recruiting, by making something go wrong in the life of a respectable matron that makes her consult the knowledge of a witch, or by introducing young maidens to tempting young devils.[18] This section also details how witches cast spells and remedies that can be taken to prevent witchcraft or help those that have been affected by it.[19]

Section III

Section III is the legal part of the Malleus that describes how to prosecute a witch. The arguments are clearly laid for the lay magistrates prosecuting witches. Institoris and Sprenger offer a step-by-step guide to the conduct of a witch trial, from the method of initiating the process and assembling accusations, to the interrogation (including torture) of witnesses, and the formal charging of the accused.[20] Women who did not cry during their trial were automatically believed to be witches.[21]

Major themes

Because the work deals with women as witches, some believe and claim that the Malleus Maleficarum is a work of misogyny. The treatise describes how women become inclined for witchcraft, claiming they were susceptible to demonic temptations through their manifold weaknesses. It was believed that they were weaker in faith and were more carnal than men.[22] Michael Bailey claims that most of the women accused as witches had strong personalities and were known to defy convention by overstepping the lines of proper female decorum.[23] After the publication of the Malleus, most of those who were prosecuted as witches were women.[24] Indeed, the very title of the Malleus Maleficarum is feminine, alluding to the idea that it was women who were the villains. Otherwise, it would be the Malleus Maleficorum (the masculine form of the Latin noun maleficus or malefica, ‘witch’), which would mean The Hammer of (Male) Witches. In Latin, the feminine "Maleficarum" would only be used for women while the masculine "Maleficorum" could be used for men alone or for both sexes if together.[25]

The Malleus Maleficarum accuses witches of infanticide, cannibalism, casting evil spells to harm their enemies, and having the power to steal men’s penises. It goes on to give accounts of witches committing these crimes.

The Malleus Maleficarum was heavily influenced by humanistic ideologies. The ancient subjects of astronomy, philosophy, and medicine were being reintroduced to the West at this time, as well as a plethora of ancient texts being rediscovered and studied. The Malleus often makes reference to the Bible and Aristotelian thought, and it is also heavily influenced by the philosophical tenets of Neo-Platonism.[26] It also mentions astrology and astronomy, which had recently been reintroduced to the West by the ancient works of Pythagoras.[27]

Reasons for widespread use

The Malleus Maleficarum was able to spread throughout Europe so rapidly in the late fifteenth and the beginning of the sixteenth century due to the innovation of the printing press in the middle of the fifteenth century by Johannes Gutenberg. That printing should have been invented thirty years before the first publication of the Malleus, which instigated the fervor of witch hunting, and, in the words of Russell, "the swift propagation of the witch hysteria by the press was the first evidence that Gutenberg had not liberated man from original sin."[28] The Malleus is also heavily influenced by the subjects of divination, astrology, and healing rituals the Church inherited from antiquity.[29]

The late fifteenth century was also a period of religious turmoil, for the Protestant Reformation was but a few decades in the future. The Malleus Maleficarum and the witch craze that ensued took advantage of the increasing intolerance of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation in Europe, where the Protestant and Catholic camps, pitted against one another, each zealously strove to maintain the purity of faith.[30]

Consequences

Between 1487 and 1520, twenty editions of the Malleus were published, and another sixteen editions were published between 1574 and 1669.[31] Popular accounts suggest that the extensive publishing of the Malleus Maleficarum in 1487 launched centuries of witch-hunts in Europe. Estimations of deaths have varied widely. According to MacCulloch, the Malleus was one of several key causes of the witch craze, along with popular superstition, jealously of witches’ knowledge from humanist scholars, and tensions created by the Reformation.[9]

The latest mass hysteria is that women are causing the fake Parental Alienation Syndrome that they are "alienators" – just like when a women was near a crop and the crop failed, it was blamed on the women-not the weather, not lack of rain, not parasites, but it was the woman’s fault for being nearby. Just because a women is nearby when a man freaks out and thinks his penis is shrinking, it doesn’t mean it’s the woman’s fault.

Talk about creating false hysteria – this continuous accusation of ever growing lists of "behaviors" that constitute "alienation" is a mass hysteria.

Mass hysteria

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to:navigation, search

Mass hysteria — other names include collective hysteria, group hysteria, Mass Psychogenic Illness, or collective obsessional behavior — is the sociopsychological phenomenon of the manifestation of the same or similar hysterical symptoms by more than one person.[1][2] A common manifestation of mass hysteria occurs when a group of people believe they are suffering from a similar disease or ailment.[3]

Contents

[hide]

[edit] Characteristics

Mass hysteria typically begins when an individual becomes ill or hysterical during a period of stress.[4] After this initial individual shows symptoms, others begin to manifest similar symptoms, typically nausea, muscle weakness, fits or headache.[5]

The features of mass hysteria include no plausible cause found, ambiguous symptoms, rapid escalation of cases – often spread by line of sight – and rapid remission of symptoms. Demographically, cases are higher in females and those with greater use of medical services. Other factors that contribute to the severity of the symptoms and spread are protective clothing worn by emergency services and mistaken or misleading investigations.

Sightings of religious miracles are often attributed to mass hysteria.[3]

[edit] Specific examples

In 2009 in Fort Worth, Texas, 34 people were sent to the hospital after they complained about having symptoms when they mistakenly thought they had been exposed to carbon monoxide.[6]

In 2008 in Tanzania, about 20 female school pupils began to faint in a schoolroom, collapsing to the floor and losing consciousness, while others after witnessing this sobbed, yelled and ran around the school. A local education officer was quoted in news reports saying that such events are "very common here".[2]

Man who is not bio dad lies about being the bio dad to try to get custody when mom wants to moveaway, and claims the mom was abusive to HIM. (What a looker, too…) He has been convicted of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in the past as well. This is the way the world is now. The only thing keeping this scuzzbag from getting custody is the fact that it wasn’t his sperm. Here’s a GUY making false accusations–not that the FRs will notice.

Harveys Lake man charged over child custody interference

Edward Lewis elewis@timesleader.com

HARVEYS LAKE – A man was arrested on charges he lured a 4-year old child away from the mother and provided false information on court documents to gain custody of the child.

Jack Covert, 51, of Second Street, was charged after the child’s mother claimed he took her son when he found out she was relocating to California, according to charges filed by state police at Wyoming and Luzerne County detectives.

She previously had a relationship with Covert that ended in September 2008.

Investigators said Covert is not the biological father of the child.

Covert was charged with two counts of unsworn falsification to authorities, and one count each of endangering the welfare of children and interference with custody of children. He was arraigned on Saturday and remained jailed Monday at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail.

Investigators allege Covert provided false information on two separate court documents – a motion for child custody and on an application for a protection from abuse on June 2.

In both documents, Covert misrepresented his relationship with the child, and claimed the mother was abusive to him, according to the criminal complaint.

A county judge issued a temporary PFA against the mother based on Covert’s application, court records indicate.

In an unrelated case, Covert was convicted by a Luzerne County jury in June 2001 of sexually assaulting a 14-year old girl inside his then tattoo studio on South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre, in September 2000.

An appellate court ordered a new trial when the trial judge, Mark Ciavarella, outside the presence of prosecutors and Covert’s lawyers, discussed the case with jurors and suggested how they should deliberate.

Covert pleaded guilty to a reduce charge of indecent assault and was sentenced in April 2003 to 421 days time served, according to court records.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled on June 10 before District Judge James Tupper in Kingston Township.

Dear Friends,

     I would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU!  I am grateful for your time, generous support, and unwavering spirit you have collectively shown over the last four months.  It’s hard to believe that June 8th is just a day away!  For those of you who live in San Bernardino County, I am thankful that I can count on your vote in Tuesday’s election.

     I am writing to ask one last favor of you all.  Please send a personal email to ALL of your friends and family, reminding them to VOTE and to VOTE FOR HOSKING.  It sounds corny, but every vote counts, and there is no indication how many votes will make the difference on Tuesday.

     I know you are all busy, so I have drafted a sample email below that you can cut & paste into a blank e-mail, and send out in a matter of seconds.

     I wanted to make this is easy as possible for all of you, as you have contributed so much to my efforts and my campaign already.  If you would prefer to write something yourself, please feel free.

     Once again, thank you for all you’ve done to help me over the last few months.  The finale is upon us.  With your help, I look forward to serving as a Superior Court Judge!

Sincerely,

James Hosking

I need your help.  Election Day is Tuesday, June 8th, and I am asking you to PLEASE vote for James Hosking for Superior Court Judge.  I support James Hosking: he is trying desperately to remove incumbent Judge Robert Lemkau.

Earlier this year, Judge Lemkau refused to protect Baby Wyatt from Wyatt’s father, who had written a story about killing Wyatt.  Baby Wyatt’s mother asked Lemkau to protect her son.  Judge Lemkau accused her of lying, of manufacturing evidence, and told the 23 year old single mother who couldn’t afford an attorney that there would be “adverse consequences” if she came back to his courtroom.  Click Here to read the Transcript.

On TV, this has been called "…one of the most heated and emotional judicial elections in the country," Pat Harvey, CBS 2 News Los Angeles.  Click Here to Watch the Video.

Hosking is a veteran San Bernardino Deputy District Attorney, earned a Master’s of Law degree, was nominated Prosecutor of the Year by the Sheriff’s Department, and instructs both law enforcement and other prosecutors.   Please visit www.electhosking.org for detailed information.

"James Hosking is more than qualified to become a Superior Court Judge,” Mike Ramos, District Attorney of San Bernardino County.  Click Here for a list of endorsements.

www.JudgeVoterGuide.com  rated both Hosking and Judge Lemkau.  Hosking earned an 8 of 10.  Lemkau received a rating of 3.5 of 10 – among the lowest of all the judicial candidates in California. 

www.electionforum.org gave Hosking "Two Thumbs Up" and Lemkau received "No Thumbs Up."

I cannot understate how important it is that you VOTE for James Hosking on Tuesday, June 8th.  If you feel the way I do, please send this email to everyone you know in San Bernardino County!

Thank you!

MOTHER’S DAY 2010 AT THE WHITE HOUSE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Peaceful Silent Vigil at The White House in Washington DC on 9 May 2010 Mother’s Day. …A cottage industry of mental health professionals and attorneys with cozy relationships with family court judges routinely bankrupt families with enormous court-ordered fees and often recommend that children be placed with their sexually or physically abusive fathers. Family court judges frequently ignore evidence of abuse, refuse to hear direct testimony from the children, and rubberstamp their cronies’ recommendations. Nurturing mothers are forced to pay costly fees to attend supervised visits with the children they raised, watching helplessly as their children continue to report abuse by their abusers to uncaring visitation monitors. Mothers who speak out about system failure often face judicial retaliation and lose what little time they have with their children. The unregulated cottage industry churns away, generating hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees to experts, while some of the worst cases settle only when the children turn 18. This is a national epidemic that is destroying families across America.

I woke up to the sound of footsteps on the kitchen floor and the sound of clashing cutlery, thinking that it was just my mom and that she was just getting a spoon for her coffee, I didn’t think too much of the cutlery, but the steps were definately from someone wearing shoes, which triggered me. Being alert in bed, I just listened, and then suddenly I heard my mom scream, I don’t recall exactly what she said.

At that point, I jumped out of my bed and ran to my mother’s room, and in a flash of second stood at her door to see the situation, my moms ex-boyfriend, and my little brothers father was leering over her on her bed, my mom curled up and what seemed to be clutching her chest. I then ran to the side of the bed and pushed him off her, and into the window. (When I returned to the home after it had been cleaned up and stuff, I found that I had actually shattered half the entire window, so I hope it hurt.)

When he was pushed back, I noticed the knife, afraid, I decided to get out of there, I grabbed my mom and told her to run, pulling her off the bed when I began to run, I grabbed the phone and then went outside, she kept pushing me so that I was in front of her. We were outside, and I thought we were going to be okay, I looked behind me when I first stepped out and she was behind me, but when I looked behind me the second time, she had fallen to the ground.
Afraid and unable to think straight, I just began dialing the number for the police as the man, Bradley Irvin Carolus, followed us outside, unsure of what to do, I just ran a little up the road because I was scared. I then listened to him for about 10 minutes yell things to my mom, and yelling at me.

I also heard what I assumed to be him kicking my mom and hitting her. She had screamed when I began calling the police, screaming for someone to help, no one came outside, I didn’t hear her after that…

When the police arrived, Brad was just standing there, they approached and asked him who he was, when he said his name, they approached to cuff him, cause I had told them on the phone I knew who it was. With flashlights they spotted my mom, and when they did, they slammed him to the ground and one officer got on his back, I then began walking away to a light post, to try and stop shaking and find the moon. I couldn’t see it, so I began walking back.
When I got back they put the flash lights on me and asked who I was, I said my name and that I was the one who made the call, they asked if I was related and I told them that it was my mother. One officer then pulled me aside and said I didn’t want to go over and see it, he sat me down, and at that point I noticed I had blood on my feet and on my hand.
Later when I was giving a statement I also found out that I had a bloodied hand print on the back of my shirt…(read less)

by MamaLiberty

The following horror story is like so many in the world where a sexually abusive father fights tooth and nail to get his victims back.  The children are trying to heal and yet their father continues to try gain access to his victims unsupervised.  A mother made a promise to her children that they would be safe forever…mothers always keep their promises.

I am a devoted, loving and protective Canadian mom of 4 stunning children. My name is Cara and I am being held captive in a country that claims liberty and justice for all and yet this is not the case here in America and globally.  Our captor is our abuser, the ransom, their childhood and our freedom to live a life without abuse.  I am being forced to file paperwork that our abuser refused to file for me as it was part of his abuse arsenal over me during our marriage to keep me in my place.  I have no legal rights unless I can afford to pay for them and more importantly, as survivors of domestic violence and our boys, child abuse, we are being re victimized by the very systems that took an oath to serve and protect, give due process and serve the best interest of the child.

I came to America engaged to a man who gave me his word he’d take care of me.  We have 2 boys together.  I left a marriage I thought would last the rest of my life, well, that was until I realized we were in danger.  In Nov 2004 after careful planning I saw the window of opportunity to get myself and our 2 boys out safely.  In the middle of the night, a friend came to pick us up and drive us to our safe place.  A woman’s shelter in PA.  I tucked my then 10mos and 22mos old boys into our bed and for the first time since coming to America, we slept in peace.  No more did I fear waking up to a gun pointing at my head, no longer did I hear his words of how he was going to kill me and bury me all over the States, no more did I hear him spew his venom at our toddlers.  Finally, we were safe…or so I thought.  Little did I know what would be in store for us over the course of the upcoming yrs.  We were at the gates of Hell and didn’t even know it…until now.

I tried to be the friendly parent, I tried to co-parent, I just wanted to know our safety would be priority to family courts.  Sadly, this was not the case and still, abuse lurks in corners.  Our abuser used the family courts and his attorney as extensions of his abuse.  We had Protection from Abuse (PFA’s) orders issued against him, we had witnesses and documentation to substantiate our claims.  Mandated reporters called CPS (Child Protective Services) a total of 10-12 times only one report was treated with the respect and safety the children deserved which resulted in 2 supported investigations of sexual abuse against their father; our abuser.  After 6 years of torment, taunting and judicial abuse the childrens cries were heard.  It no longer mattered to me that the Courts belittled and outright dismissed the domestic violence, all that mattered now was our 2 boys were BELIEVED.  After 5&6 yrs of being their primary caretaker, Dec 2008 they were raped from my custody and placed with our abuser who at this time was now a 4 State drive away.  Why the term rape, because I have been raped and the tearing away of your children to our abuser runs parallel to being raped by your attacker.  The children testified to the abuse and the Judge dismissed their testimony, the Judge dismissed the treating psychologist would could substantiate the child’s fears and reactive behaviour.  The only thing the Judicial system saw was an immigrant mother who was obviously making allegations to gain custody.  Furthest from the truth. 70% of Batters gain custody when they file for it, 1.3% of abuse allegations are false, I’m not that 1.3%  I was sadly awarded visitation and our abuser controlled even that.  Then in March of 2009 without notice not more than 24 hrs of having the boys home, they both disclosed sexual abuse against their father.  A forensic interview was completed in MA (our home State) and sent to PA the State of jurisdiction.  The children were taken into protective custody and I was only afforded 3 phone calls in a 48 day period while our abuser was allowed continued supervised visitation once a week.

The children were so brave as they continued to disclose and sadly act out.  The CPS investigator completed her findings and presented it to the Judge with the recommendation that the children be returned to my custody and that the children not remain in foster care.  Our abuser testified that he’d rather see them in foster care than with me their mother. 3 days later the Honorable Judge Stein order the children back to me this time awarding me sole custody of our boys and giving our abuser supervised visits though a accredited centre that would ensure the children’s safety.

No sooner did this happen that our abuser filed for an appeal against the indicated reports of sexual abuse against our 2 sons.  In Dec 2009 with less than 24hrs notice to appear in court 4 States away, the children were confronted by their abuser prior to testifying.  The very man who had told the boys that if they told about “daddy’s secret” they could all go to jail, or even be killed. (nothing different from threats he had made to me during our marriage.)  The boys asked me if they were going back to foster care and I had told them no, they asked why they were there and I told them because the Judge wants to hear what they told us and the investigator about the things they said about their dad.  They also wanted confirmation that we’d then go home and I said yes, then we’d go straight home.  Upon exiting, our youngest did state that he told a lie about me, when asked why, he sadly said he “was afraid that daddy’s lawyer would get mad” I told him not to worry, it would be okay.

May 15, 2010 I get notice in the mail via the attorney for CPS informing me that our abuser’s appeal before the Administrative Law Judge was granted and ordered CPS to expunge his record as ”they did not convince me that they were telling the truth” He went further to state that “their mother influenced their testimony” and the “Appellant denied that he sexually abused the subject children.  Appellant’s testimony was credible”

With this feather in his hat, our abuser has now served me with more litigation papers, this time seeking sole custody and to have my parental rights suspended pending a custody hearing.  I have brought this to the attention of the boys treating specialists and they were not a bit surprised as they see this happen all to often to young children who have suffered child abuse and placed on an adult platform like testifying in court especially in the known presence of their abuser.  So here we go back down the Rabbit Hole of a broken and failing family court system that is not protecting our children but rather trafficking them to the money whores of the CRT.   Sadly, this is not just in America as I have found out and worse yet, I am not alone.  This is a global crisis that is even taking place in my own home country of Canada.

Is no child safe anymore? Aren’t they WORTH SAVING?

SUING THE ABUSER: TORT REMEDIES FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

FILED IN: BRIAN K. ZOELLER, DOMESTIC ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, PATRICK SCHMIEDT, SUE YOUR ABUSER, TORT CLAIMS, VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

I came across this paper a couple years ago, stashed it, and just refound…it is an interesting concept….suing your abuser.  If the courts weren’t so bias against women, I’d say this should be seriously considered.  It is nice to wish though that the courts would be just and fair about anything.

Here is an excerpt:

The legal system’s response to domestic violence has improved somewhat in recent years. More abusers are arrested and more victims obtain orders of protection. Despite this progress, there is still a lot room for improvement. One legal remedy that surprisingly few victims avail themselves of is the civil tort suit. In the past, a legal doctrine known as interspousal immunity, combined with misguided perceptions of domestic violence as being a private matter, limited a woman’s ability to obtain compensation for abuse committed by a spouse. Perceptions about domestic violence are gradually changing and the interspousal immunity doctrine has been abolished in all but two states, providing today’s domestic violence victims with a range of potential tort causes of action. This article will discuss several of these causes of action and describe common defenses which must be overcome.

This story has as many twists in it as the David Goldman and Bruna Bianchi Story. Interestingly, it also has a couple of similarities. First, these cases involve the family courts in the State of New Jersey. Second, the wives have not been able to speak for themselves, so we have the father being represented by the media.

Let’s break down the stories as reported in the United States. Please make note of the language that is utilized and the structure of that language:

In a March 6, 2010 NBC New York article entitled, NJ Dad Fights for His Children After Wife Flees to Korea:

"I suspect they are in Korea but i’m not sure," says Mendoza.

He says his wife took the children, then disappeared into her native country of South Korea

The father (Mendoza) doesn’t really know where his kids are but says that his wife (Shim) took the kids (from where) and hid out.

Shim allegedly convinced Mendoza to move to a town south of Seoul. He says they were hurting financially so he returned to America to wait for his family that never showed up.

The father was convinced to move to Korea but the monetary payout wasn’t what he was seeking. He went back to the U.S. to wait? So in the meantime, what was he doing? Did his wife say she wanted to return to the U.S.? Did she say that she would?

Shim tells the court and Korean authorities a much different story.

"Mrs. Shim, the mother, was told by her 5-year-old son there was some type of sexual abuse by the father to the 2-year-old daughter," said Shim’s attorney Christine Bae.

Mendoza denies the charge, asking why, if she believed it, his wife fled rather than show up in court to gain legal custody of the children.

The father denies the charge? Or the allegation? And why would the mother flee? She was in Korea, wouldn’t the question be why would the father flee, especially in that Korea is non-signatory to the Hague Convention? Why not pursue his children in Korea?

Mendoza says his wife has allowed him to chat with his kids once a month through Skype, but he’s had no contact since his wife’s arrest.

Once a month since when?

In a March 7, 2010 in a New York Post article entitled, Musician mom held in kidnap: New hope for desperate NJ dad:

A globetrotting concert violinist who absconded with her son and daughter in South Korea last year was arrested in Guam last week, sparking hope for a New Jersey father who has waged a ferocious court battle to get his children back.

Globetrotting? The father is also a musician who has traveled the world.

Absconded with…in…? The mother did not abscond with her children TO South Korea–which would mean that she left somewhere (presumably New Jersey) with the kids and fled to South Korea. She fled IN South Korea.

Shim was busted Wednesday as she arrived at the airport in Guam, a US territory.

Busted? A little dramatic, no? It would be reasoned that this woman knew Guam was a US territory and thus travel there would pose a risk, if she felt she had something to risk.

Shim’s arrest is the latest turn in Mendoza’s custody battle, which has been mired in global politics and red tape because Korea does not observe the Hague Convention governing international custody battles.

Is the red tape because of the Hague Convention, or something else?

The nightmare began in February 2009 for Mendoza, 47, when at Shim’s request he took a temporary teaching position she had arranged for him at Suwon University in South Korea. Shim told him she wanted to expose their children to her country’s culture.

And so we have here that the father agreed to move to South Korea.

And a month into the trip, Mendoza realized his salary was only half of what his wife had promised. So in April, he flew back to the United States, hoping to earn enough money to move his family back to New Jersey.

And then the father decides to return to the United States, without his wife and children, for economic reasons.

Two days after he arrived home, his wife called him, saying he had molested their daughter and shouldn’t return to Korea, Mendoza’s web site says.

And here we have allegations of sexual abuse involving the father.

Shim vowed to raise the children on her own and said she had taken over his Korean teaching position.

The mother takes the job that the father held–the same job that seemingly didn’t pay him enough money.

The devoted dad flew back to Korea in May and found that the apartment where the family had lived was cleared out.

Mendoza visited the US Embassy in Seoul to report that his wife had kidnapped their kids, he says. He was also questioned by Korean police about the abuse allegations, but was released without being charged.

Nothing mentioned about what the Korean officials said about the mother and children.

Mendoza took his fight to New Jersey courts, where, Brandt said, a judge awarded him full custody of the children.

Father returns to the U.S. and is awarded full custody of the children in absence of the mother and children in that New Jersey courtroom. What did the father say to the judge? What evidence did he provide? How was the mother noticed of the hearing? Did she have enough time to respond? If you make a kidnapping accusation in a New Jersey courtroom are you automatically given full custody of your children without any investigation into the matter?

In a March 12 article entitled, Dumont father battling wife in international custody case; kids are in South Korea:

Now, authorities are preparing to bring Shim to New Jersey to face charges that she kept their son and daughter in South Korea without Mendoza’s consent. Bergen County prosecutors have also charged Shim with interfering with custody, a second-degree charge that carries up to 10 years in prison.

When is consent or lack of consent established? What is the time frame? And how is this proven?

But not long ago, Shim told Mendoza that she wanted to move to Korea for a time, having lost interest in the conservatory and having become impatient with life in the Western world, he said. Mendoza said he reluctantly agreed to live there for a year.

The father agreed…for a period of one year. This would mean that the father violated the agreement when he moved back to New Jersey.

Mendoza worked as a music teacher and Shim worked part time while taking care of the children, and she seemed happier than she had been in Dumont, he said.

Soon, however, Mendoza found out that his pay was half of what he had expected, he said.

Realizing that he was not making enough to support a family of four, and fearing that a prolonged absence from the United States would jeopardize his teaching jobs here, he decided to return briefly and lay the foundation for a permanent move back to the U.S., he said.

The mother was happy in Korea despite what the father depicts as an income issue. The father was concerned with money and status in the U.S. Was this a marital agreement or a unilateral move on a hope and wish that his wife would follow suit?

Mendoza’s attorney, Galit Moskowitz, …Scott Laterra, another attorney for Mendoza…

The father has two attorneys.

…Shim filed a criminal complaint a few days before Mendoza left Korea, and then told him about it after he arrived in the United States.

This would mean that the child(ren) alleged sexual abuse before the father even left Korea, but that the Korean authorities had not yet contacted him.

Last week, Superior Court Judge Alexander H. Carver issued an order finding Shim in contempt of court and issued a warrant for her arrest.

Remember his name.

Bae said the children are now with their maternal grandmother in South Korea, and stressed that Mendoza knows exactly where they are.

The children’s whereabouts are known? This sounds like a NCMEC case /snark.

Mendoza said he has been able to talk to the children once in a while over the phone but has lost touch for the past three weeks.

Previously he said he talks to them via Skype on a monthly basis. If the mother is in prison/jail, how does he expect her to continue to facilitate this?

In a May 28 article entitled, Violinist to remain in jail until kids returned: judge:

A globetrotting violinist who was arrested in Guam months ago after she absconded with her two young children in South Korea will remain behind bars until the children are returned home, a Bergen County judge said today.

"She remains arrested under my orders," said Judge Alexander H Carver, of Si Nae-Shim, who did not appear in court.

He reiterated that she would not be released until the children are brought home.

The mother has not even appeared in court yet. The judge doesn’t want to hear her, he only wants to see the kids returned to New Jersey. The mother has not spoken, therefore she has not been heard. How can the kids be ordered to return to the U.S. based upon the decision of one judge and one party–the father? Why not order the father to return to Korea? What gives New Jersey and the United States all of this power? Remember his name, again, Bergen County Judge Alexander H. Carver.

Will the U.S. will bully South Korea based on this case, just as they did Brazil (using economic sanctions)? Will father’s rights continue to trump children’s best interests? Will father’s rights groups try to bully South Korea just as they are doing to Japan (regarding the Savioe case)? Will South Korea bow down to the United States Hague Convention? Or will the hypocrisy of the United States and their treatment of women and children finally be exposed on an international level?

Parental Alienation Syndrome (my ass)
