DCFS’s real crime? Breaking up families

DCFS’s real crime? Breaking up families - Chicago Sun-Times:

News that DCFS investigations are missing the mark isn’t news to me. I have sued DCFS more than a dozen times and have established, through federal court findings, that the state’s child-welfare system has a staggering rate of error in its investigations. But the mistakes my cases have demonstrated are much different from the ones highlighted by recent news stories about child deaths. In fact, they are just the opposite: They show a DCFS too quick on the trigger to pull children from the care of suitable parents.

Have You Seen Austin?


This is our Grandson Austin. He was born on 1/25/00. He's now thirteen. He was stolen by Nashua, NH DCYF on 2/3/06. After being promised he would be raised by us, a stranger stepped up(supposedly) in December of 2009 to adopt him. We were then denied placement by the corrupt DCYF and Family Court, even though ALL the State actors testified as to the bond we shared with our Grandson. How our Grandson cried to be with us. Someone out there has to have seen him. That is unless he is no longer on this Earth. No-one will tell us anything. He could be out of State. Maybe in Maine or Ma. as he's being kept hidden from us. Please, if anybody has seen him, please contact me. Austin, we Love you!

N.H.Family Court Judges Rubber Stamp Fraudulent Court Orders

First off, isn't it illegal for a Family Court Judge to rule on "Hearsay" without proof in Family Court and Domestic Violence case? It sure is, so why are N.H. Judges getting away with it to steal our children?

When a Family Court Judge court orders a parent out of Methadone Treatment, isn't that illegal?
You're dam right it is according to SAMSHA, Parent's can NOT be ordered out of treatment in order to regain custody of their children.

When a Family Court Judge court orders a parent into a program that doesn't exist in the State, shouldn't that be considered illegal? It very well should be considering there is no way for the parent to comply with the court order, making it a lose, lose situation.

When Court orders are drawn up and stamped before a hearing even takes place, hasn't the Judge falsified a Court document?

When a Court order states the parent didn't make his/her deadline to be admitted into a program, only the fraudulent order is dated a week before the parent is to be admitted, isn't that Judge again guilty of falsifying a court document? And the parent isn't even supposed to be admitted until the day after Court, but all of a sudden is denied entrance and denied ALL visitation with his/her child, because the parent is reportedly still on Methadone. Reported by the caseworker who call's the Methadone Clinic daily, checking on the parents doses, but neglects to give the Judge the drug test results showing the doses and levels going down. She report's the parent isn't being drug tested and the doses and levels are NOT going down. If the parent weren't being tested, how would the caseworker know they weren't going down? But the Judge can't see that picture and rules against the parent of course.

Family Court cases are predetermined. The parent is set up to lose from the start. 

When a Lawyer tells you it doesn't matter how much you prove that DCYF screwed you over and you still won't win, what does that tell you?

 When the caseworker meets with the Foster strangers outside of the courtroom, after you've just been screwed some more and tells them, "Don't worry, there's no guarantee ***** is going anywhere," what does that tell you? It tell's me there's a pay off and no matter what you do, you lose!

Why are NH Judges getting away with all this fraud? They need to be stopped!

N.H. parents are in dire need of Legal Representation. Are there ANY Aggressive Lawyer's out there that aren't afraid to go up against the almighty DCYF and Family Court Judges?
If there are, please contact:

It's about time Government mandates were followed in the placement of children, but DCYF still has a long way to go. Congratulations Carol and Camryn!
