As each day goes by, it seems that cumulatively we are getting more and more opportunities to bring awareness of Parental Alienation and Parental Abduction to the forefront of people’s minds. Including the media, UK governments and US governments, Congress etc.
As much as we don’t like to use the word “victim”, many Left Behind Parents (LBP) are exactly that – but the true victims in all of this, our the children. The children that are lost in the system, the children who don’t have a voice. The children who are torn from loving and healthy homes and placed in situations that leave them vulnerable, unloved and abused. More and more parents are falling at the hands of unjust rulings in the family courts and it’s no surprise that they feel like a victim at times. It’s not that they feel sorry for themselves – but who would blame them. It’s not that they feel beaten and defeated every day – but there are good days and there are and ones. What they do want and need – is YOU and your support.
We have seen in the media, that those affected aren’t just your ordinary folks – it can happen to anyone as I’m sure, Kelly Rutherford can testify to. Recently actress and mother, Kelly Rutherford was successful in finally getting a California court to grant her full legal and physical custody of her children, after a long and arduous battle in the courts rooms over the last 3 years or so. As part of her plight and campaign, she created a petition that she asked everyone to sign and needed to meet the threshold of 100k signatures on order to get The Whitehouse to read details of her endeavors.
As we said, this happens to the ordinary Mom and Dad too and as part of our continued campaigning and drive to bring awareness to the public eye, we are helping one Mom attempt to achieve what Kelly has done and campaign in order for her to be reunited with her son. Like Kelly, she needs 100K signatures in order for the Whitehouse to review her case.
For those of reading in the UK, you can still help. This is an International Custody Case, involving a British Mother who had full custody of her son per the UK courts in 2010, subsequently given permission to move to California for work (father was never a resident nor a citizen of the UK, so she wasn’t taking the child away from the father). No sooner had her and her son arrived in the US, the father started a hate campaign and embarked on obtaining full custody off the child. An eternal bachelor, things changed when he met someone (now his wife) on a dating website and the rest we say, is history. Fueled by his father who had also obtained custody of him and his sister back in the day, coupled with a torrid of awful accusations in that case – it seemed the apple wasn’t falling far from the tree and they were determined that history would repeat itself.
The US court failed to acknowledge the UK court order which had been granted a mere 2 months prior and new proceedings started. The landscape that was painted very clear when the Father told a California court that the Mother had kidnapped the child and was in the States illegally and should have been stopped by Interpol – all this despite her having and presenting the court with her new court order, which the Father was also in receipt of……..and then the vile, emotional and heart wrenching custody journey begins. Her attorney called it “form shopping” and it was clear that lies, manipulation and false allegations were going to be the order of the day and important ingredients for the onslaught the Mother did not see coming.
We will be publishing her journal that she kept – a very detailed journal of the plight, the journey and the corruption and bias that was becoming ever evident in her case in particular.
Hearing about the journey Kelly Rutherford went on, it became clear that it didn’t matter what color, creed, race, religion or famous background you come with – bias is bias, corruption is corruption and no-one is safe from the unjust rulings that take place in the court room.
We don’t always blame the Judges – but in this particular case, we do!
We know that Judges, Attorney’s GAL’s, therapists etc need to be educated more to know what they are dealing with in the court room and in their offices. Parental Alienation is on the rise and although many courts or mental health organizations DO NOT recognize it as defined condition – too many courts are using it as a basis to change custody for example. Narcissism, Borderline Personality Disorders etc are present in the court rooms and Judges can’t see the wood for the trees.
This particular case is riddled with errors, all of which are documented and ready for retrial. Whilst we understand people think, “oh there must be something else to the story” there is also the simple truth of prominent corruption and pure bias in the courts and the sticking together of the old boys etc. In court transcripts, the father of the child admitted under oath that he paid off a custody evaluator who was one of the “Old Boys Club” in excess of $50,000 and this was proven in court. There was a plethora of evidence to show bias in the custody evaluation report. Including but not limited to a plethora of sworn declarations and testimonies from the child’s therapist, mothers at the child’s school, child’s principal at school and soccer/football coaches.
Also the fact that the custody evaluator’s are NOT ALLOWED to have ex part communication with either party after the repot is submitted to the courts – yet we have documented and emailed prove that the evaluator and FATHER were in constant contact, including the weekend of February 16 in 2013 and the evaluator was sent a HUGE box of papers, copies of emails and copies of a deposition in August 2013 – 8 MONTHS AFTER the report had been submitted and prior to any proposal of trial. The law in California states very clearly that this would invalidate any report and the report CAN NOT be used as evidence!
….and the evaluator repeatedly contradicted himself in the report – going as far as stating and this is a direct excerpt from the report
Page 110 of the 730 Custody Evaluation Report…….
“Child is “well and strongly bonded to his mother” and then writes that psychiatric data indicates that a discontinuance of that primary parent/child bond at such a young age can have dire and lifetime consequences for the child’s development, maturation and psychological and interpersonal well being”
Here is another excerpt from just one of the many many signed declarations signed and submitted under the penalty of perjury from the child’s therapist (who is also a court appointed custody evaluator nonetheless) and she also testified to this in court – yet the Judge did NOTHING!…..
“Dr. ????? told me that Petitioner was to blame for Respondent’s lack of bonding with their son, and that his job was to make sure Respondent got custody of minor child. He also indicated to me he had “carte blanche” authority to make whatever recommendations he wanted. That was why he essentially ordered the parties to initiate visitation according to his schedule. This was radically different from the schedule before he was appointed to the case and I did not agree with his abrupt change, and I observed marked differences in child as a result of the schedule imposed on the parties by Dr. ??????.
We need your help to get the US and UK Government to listen and take heed of what is happening in their court rooms, but probably aren’t aware.
We are currently talking to 2 national newspapers and ready to bring this to the forefront, but we also need your help – yes YOU! Please SIGN and SHARE this WHITEHOUSE PETITION. We have PAS National Awareness Day, We have the UN speaking with EU and recognizing PAS to be present and to be considered as Child Abuse – now we need YOU.
Please help. If you are an alienated parent, affected by alienation or know someone that has or is being affected, please simply take 5 mins out of your day and sign this petition and share it.
As one voice, we may sound like a whisper but together, we can ROAR and make a difference.
