Going through this now. Law Guardians that surely are not after the best interests of the children. The Law Guardian in my case continues to ignore my claims of neglect and abuse by their mother, even when I have pictures and video. She said that if I don't stop, she will side with the mother. Well, she did. I just lost my boys last week because they said I was angry. Are you kidding? Of course I am angry that I have been told that I can't protect my children...when I do....it is only to get back at their mother. You have to be kidding. My kids mother is still getting CPS calls even during this court trial and I'm not even the one calling. Like I said, I can't call anymore...IT WILL GO AGAINST ME!!! Then, the law guardian declares my sons counselor an expert witness,,,,,a witness who told lie after lie after lie, It was this witnesses' testimony that caused me to lose my two boys. So I go home and ask myself, why would this counselor lie? So, I go on to her Face Book page and yes.....she and the Law Guardian have been friends since 2009. This whole case stinks of corruption and conspiracy. Back in February, my exes attorneys, ordered my oldest son into Four Winds . Four winds referred him to Saratoga County Mental Health for counseling....his new counselor...the law guardians friend. They used my son, put him through hell, made him stay in a facility for which he did not belong...just to get him to this counselor. After all, they knew they were dead in the water...their petition was all lies and they knew it. I have never seen a side of humanity...like I have seen permeate the Saratoga County Court System. These people call themselves lawyers? I call them cheaters and fakes. For a county employee to sit on the stand in a court of law and terrorize a man with preposterous untruths, is unfathomable to me. Like I said.....Saratoga County you are promoting and creating a sickness, a breed of people that defies what humanity is and guess what, like everything else...it will be this Courts demise. You can't succeed without morals. You may have won a case...but you lost at life. Now the truthful one gets sued......"you don't say"....
need opinions – I think the guardians in this court are horrible but what about the judges? does anyone have experience with Judge Jenson? She actually seemed to be fair from what Ive seen...anyone had her?
Law Guardians – All the reviews below are right - things are not being done in the best interest of the kids in this court. The law guardians are suppose to be working in the best interest of the children - but they aren't even open minded enough to look at the situation from both sides. Why take the mother's side all the time? Because she can put on an act? Really - doesn't law school teach you enough that you can protect yourself from being completely fooled by a criminal, loser. In my friend's case the law guardian is advocating for the mother. But the mother has a rap sheet about seven feet long. She's a pathological liar who sleeps the whole day, deals drugs and can't even get her kids to school on time. It's ridiculous. Before you advocate for some mother - you might want to check into what is really going on in the household - so that you can act in the best interest of the child - so you can do your job and uphold your OATH to provide the best representation for your client - the best thing for the child is not always the mother - This is 2011 you know. Wake up and get with the times. Do you really want another child to grow up and be a drop out drug addict. Sweet. Good Job Family Court - way to go!
protecting and doing whats best for the children????? – so i can go to jail and lose my child for not doing anything about the things her father did to her and in front of her(which i tried to report it and had no proof because it was a week later that i was able to escape him) but nothing happens to him! he gets whatever he wants from family court its bs he intentionally gives her a deadly disease that has been compared to and put in the same category as aids hospitalizing her twice due to lack of caring for himself properly and this judge is all too willing to allow him to make her sick again!!!! not to mention his drug and alcohol abuse in front of her, sexual and verbal abuse in front of her, torturing and tormenting her, verbally n emotionally abusing her, smacking n pushing her but its ok cause she is a kid and will get over it!!!! this is where serial killers, rapist, and abusers begin...... family court that cares and does whats in the best interest of the child!!!!!!
The most corrupt and biased court in the country – The Judges and law guardians of this court are EXTREMELY BIAS AGAISNT MEN and make decisions that will hurt your children and their future's
IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO GOTO THIS COURT DON'T
STAY AWAY IF YOUR A FATHER AS TO THESE PEOPL E ITS ALL ABOUT MAKING THE COUNTY MONEY...
New Female Judge totally Biased – For a year now I have had custody of my 2 children. My soon to be ex-wife has tried everything from accusing me of alcohol abuse to threats with fire arms....after three different judges and over a year she finally manages to win custody, all due to an inexperienced judge. Our trial was the second trial that this judge has ever presided over. The worst part is that the "Law Guardian" was the prime adviser to the judge and my children had told her that they wanted to live with me and she lied to the judge.....my kids tell me everything, they are 6 and 10 they come home from school after meeting with the law guardian and tell me what was said even if the law guardian tells them to keep their conversations quite......so is our court system biased, yes it is but its not just the retarded, politically motivated judges but the system as a whole......
Buyer Beware...You are about to descend into the pit. – I too, am a divorced father of two...and, I am very well versed in how this court operates.
Remember when you were in school, and you learned about how the court system worked, how the judges were there to uphold the law, that you were on a level playing field with your opponent, that you were allowed to present your case, and that the court would listen and render a fair decision based on the law?
FORGET ABOUT ALL OF THAT, it doesn't happen here.
Wake up...you've just arrived in hell. Judges here routinely ignore your most basic rights, will ignore the laws, especially the CSSA (Child Support Standards Act), and will threaten you with jail - if you DARE speak to them. Due Process is a totally foreign concept. They will force you to see shrinks for an analysis, or a Social worker (for supervised visits) WHO ARE NOT LICENSED TO PRACTICE in NY (and they know it). They play games with your child's lives and hold them hostage from you. One judge was finally removed, but only after he did something politically incorrect, and commented on the sexual nature of a picture of a turtle on her t-shirt, not for his normal everyday violations of litigants rights. I have seen important court documents - disappear. I have had court recordings, the official court record - shortened by an hour. Just up and disappeared. Hmmmm...
So, one judge is gone...but the others knew about his practices and followed suit, ignoring and thereby condoning his actions. They are his equal in almost every way.
This is the good news... The bad news is that there is nothing you can do about it, and no one you can go to for help to stop this kind of abuse. The judges are accountable to NO ONE.
Good Luck on the worst ride of your life...
NEW PHONE NUMBER – The new number for the family court is 518-451-8888.
An unfriendly and harsh experience – I'm a divorced father of two, so am well-acquainted with the facility. The office is stark and dreary, very off-putting, with close-packed chairs and a pay copy machine. Conversations which shold be private are heard by all. Shackled prisoners are often shuffled nearby, with officers making small-talk. Arguments between families and lawyers or counselors are spilled out. The vibe is of sorrow; of vulnerability and apprehension. When will our local government consider the effect on the innocent-the cjhildren brought here and the low-income single parents who must fork up over five dollars for the multiple forms to be copied? Not a coloring book to be found, not a toy or a magazine. Does our government care at all about forcing those who cannot afford attorneys to bear these rigors?
