Picking up from the Father serving T with a no contact order; she did make the court hearing. At the pre-hearing the charges were that T was a drunk and (possibly) a drug user! Unreliable and resistant to his decisions.
T was in court that day; she was not drunk! She was confused but sober! The judge accepted “the lawyers” paperwork on the basis of there being 3 letters; (1) was from the Grandfather, the other 2 were people that no longer had a relationship with T; one was a man who didn’t like anymore (since the divorce), and he was still friends with the father. The other letter was from a ex-roommate of T’s who had run out and left her and the kids with a $600-800 light bill, they had not talked in many months.
Not “one” of the accusations were based on truth. Still that day; even with T in the court room without a lawyer, this made no impression on the judge. Her parental rights and civil rights were snatched from her the same day with no investigation or proof! That was 8 months ago. The children were taken away “completely” for her home although the children didn’t have any history of having rooms or beds in the fathers home. He would go to work and home and leave the children to be taken care of by his girlfriend who was a previous stripper! This, the courts ignored or it was not investigated and saw nothing wrong with a non-family member taking responsibility for the children.
The kids were given to T on a 1 day a week basis, she was not permitted to have them sleep at her home until there was a determination….continue later Thanks for listening! God Bless!
