This is a national crisis in the family courts all over the US and Mothers are losing custody….unfairly by a court system that is not protecting our children. Just imagine, a long clothesline, with mini wooden clothespins, and handprints of all sizes, representing protective mothers and their children who have been “legally kidnapped” by the family courts. We are asking Mothers who have lost physical custody of their child(ren) to create handprints to commemorate their lost child(ren). Throughout weekend of the conference, we will be providing materials and ask Mothers to add paper cut-out handprints to the clothesline. However, Mothers do NOT need to be in attendance at the conference in order to add their handprints. Please mail the handprints before Jan. 2, 2010 to: Linda Marie Sacks P.O.

    Custody evaluators

    Post by C on Wed Dec 29, 2010 12:03 am

    I'm writing this on behalf of my significant other. He's 47, recently legally divorced but still in the middle of court battles to settle financial matters for the divorce, as well as child support, and custody/visitation for his 4-year-old son. His son lives in California; we live in NY. In early 2008, his wife locked him out of their Long Beach oceanfront condominium because he had been unemployed for a while. She also took his name off their supposedly "joint" bank accounts. She invited him into the condo only often enough to make their friends and family think they were still together, while actually he was living in his car. After six months, he borrowed money from his sister in NY and moved here. He signed over full custody to his wife after she told him she had to have it to provide medical care for their son. Having very little money until his father died and he inherited, he had almost no contact with his son; his wife would have the child call and leave messages for him, and he thought this was using the child as a pawn. Fast forward to early 2010, when I convinced him he needed to re-establish contact with his son. His wife is fighting him tooth and nail in court; she filed a temporary restraining order against him full of outright lies, such as saying he has had lifelong mental health problems and has been hospitalized multiple times for it. He now has two calls per week with his son, and is fighting for joint custody. He plans to ask the court for a 730 custody evaluation. How do you get an evaluator who is honest and will do a decent job? His ex-wife is a doctorate-level psychologist who obviously can game all the tests to make herself look good. Please help! This man is a good dad, and his child deserves to know his dad. Thanks.
