Cps took my son and daughter two days before both of their birthdays one year ago. They had no truth in any of their reasons why and my babies were spoiled loved and very happy and healthy. They need to take kids that need the help not ones from good homes..
they also kidnapped my 3 babies from me
The whole system is messed up. Something needs to be done to rectify!!
To Whom It May Concern,
I wish to file a formal complaint against MY CASEWORKER JAMIE BAKER and her ASSOCIATED DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES (DHHS) WORKERS AND SUPERVISORS INVOLVED IN MY CASES.
I have not been able to resolve our differences and I believe she is not handling my case fairly or competently for the following reasons:
- She repeatedly lied to me by saying that my children would be in my home after my youngest daughter Journey Matthews was born, on January 18, 2007 Journey Elizabeth Marie Matthews was born; My children Hunter Alexzander Davis, Kyle Jordan Lantz, and Skye Dianne Jean Lantz
were not returned to our home or my care and when I asked Jamie Baker why she stated because I wanted you to have your baby in Maine I was scared you would run away and sign over your rights to Journey to another Guardian and Ms. Baker stated she lied so I wouldn't harm my unborn baby.
-May 14,2007 the department filed a petition to terminate parental rights in respect of my oldest son Hunter Alexzander Davis and not any of my other children.
Through reunification was the main goal for my family, Ms. Baker refused phone calls, extra visits holiday visits unsupervised visits and home visits with my son Hunter Davis.
After requesting that Hunter see my new home and see the room I set up for him with new bedding and all his things: IE: toys books his stuffy animals and the room I repainted with the colors both the boys wanted; only to replace the memories he has when he was taken and show him his mother was making good changes for the family, Jamie Baker denied him of this opportunity. This was not in the best interest for Hunter.
She ( Ms. Baker) got Hunter to admit that I stabbed him while he was under my care in our home. Though EMS, doctors and medical records will deem this untrue.
She ( Ms. Baker) has repeatedly mislead my children and myself in my home and in team meetings.
She ( Ms. Baker) repeatedly lied to me regarding such importance issues as my compliance with my case plan, my current medical status, medication status, and my parenting style status.
Jamie Baker has ignored the statements of my children regarding my parenting ability and alleged abuse/neglect; she also denies/denied my children's plea's to be allowed to come home, my son Hunter asked me in-front of Allen Delong his foster placement this is one of three he went to “ mommy why can we go home and I pointed to Ms. Baker and told him to ask her and her reply was Hunter it is because your mommy is to sick in her head to care for you and your brother and sisters” Ms. Baker is not qualified to say that to my son and can't make a call of this nature since she is not qualified in a psychiatric field to make this statement to my son Hunter who is 7 years old at this time, Ms. Baker ignored my children's desires to be reunited with their beloved mother.
She ( Ms. Baker) has repeatedly failed to return my phone calls, and states to the judge at our prelimi

I have been fighting the Family Courts and CPS of all the lies and false allegations for three years now. When is the system gonna be equal for bothe mathers and fathers? I support shared and equal parenting.
We had our children unlawfully seized by berks county children and youth. They love us and are tightly bonded with their family. All the individuals including the judge , are in many other falsified and malicious court cases like ours . It clearly states that there was no imminent danger present. These scum bags do more harm then good for children they need to all be held accountable they need to be punished like criminals . Then they seek immunity when it is bought to light and to alienate children like they do is beyond me. Personally what they do to family's and children when they claim to help them and actually destroy them. They should all be drug out in a field and shot
for my kidsthis day has taken both of my kids and give me one of them back but will not return the second one because they said I am NOT protective enough what do they mean by this
CPS accepts anonymous complaints, illegally violates parent's and children's civil and constitutional rights. They also assume the parent and child are lying during the illegally held interviews. They also claim that the material gathered from these interviews can be turned over to law enforcement to pursue criminal charges against the parent, but claim they do not have to read Miranda Rights to the parents.
I am concerned that CPS feels justified in trumping federal laws during investigations. Parents and children are told that if they refuse to conduct the interview that CPS can take custody to force the interview. CPS also assumes that the parents and children are lying, so they can take "emergency" custody without a court order or evidence to prove the accusations are true!
CPS and the courts do not consider the emotional trauma inflicted on the parents and children when taking children away from the parents; children's emotional well being especially! Mandatory reporters can hide behind the mandatory standing and can make falsified accusations and know they are protected from prosecution. Even if the complaints turn out to be untrue, CPS has no desire to investigate as to why the accusation was made.
CPS even uses previous unsubstantiated complaints as evidence of neglect, even if the investigators believe the complaints to have zero merit. CPS also allows an investigator to sit alone with a child even if the investigator is a middle aged male and the child is a teenage girl. This violates federal sexual harassment laws, but is allowed under state law. This also allows CPS to make claim of statements by the child even if the child never made them, or allows CPS to withhold any statements the child does make from their report.

What can be done when CPS removes a child, but tells you & the court they had no evidence? During a 13 day custody the CPS worker, foster care worker & foster parent all lied to & threatened the child. They also made the child go 17 hours without insulin because they had to follow protocol & knew the child was in danger. Complaints to Lansing went unanswered except to tell the parent several appalling comments- "When CPS shows up the child & parent have no civil or constitutional rights." "We would rather destroy the emotional well being of one child to protect a few." "You should be happy we took your child because that shows how much we care about children." After 13 days the judge ruled CPS had no probable cause & returned my child. Due to current laws CPS can remove a child without evidence or probable cause. They are also allowed to provide false statements, twist the child's & parents words, & make unprovable statements about the parent.
I was told that CPS did a "thorough" investigation into my complaint, but at no time interviewed my daughter or me. All they had to go on were their own files & records. They do not answer to anyone, except themselves in complaints. Even the Office of Children's Ombudsm
The Corruption ALL allowed in the Family Court Systems is off the Charts SEVERE!

IT's worse than the Realty Show "American Greed"

Cameras in the Family Courts should be required.

It is literally Shocking what is going on in the Family Courts.

Yes, everything that is wrote above is true, My chronically ill child was reported to truancy court but nor as a referral but as a Child in need of supervision, despite 10 yrs of medical records and over 400,00 dollars in medical bills, CPS used her mental health in home worker to file a investigational report to the judge that destroyed my daughter's mental health until she completely shut down, even though they have psychological stating she has major depressives disorder, ptsd, and all stress needs removed, but instead we have and still are being harassed even more by the GAL who is lying to the judge to get up in more trouble and judge will not allow us to prove our innocents with documentation of doctor notes all the while our first court date was 1/14/2013 and on 1/27/2014 will be the 9th continuance of our case, and she was given public defender who will not defend nor even consult with me because they dropped my charges to I could not retain my own defender and her defender states she can not discuss my child's case even though, my child has never been advised about what is taken place and neither has I, I have never been in trouble, I cant get an attorney to touch this case and I feel they are killing my child and I have to watch because I am powerless to stop them from this cruel behavior towards a disabled child, my next move is ACLU and the media
THIS IS HAPPENING TO MY FAMILY!
Cleare in criminal court for any abuse family court said that it didn't matter in their court, even though they are not a legitimate court - they are a joke ignoring all rights of parents and children whom are American citizens. Enough!
My daughter and grandaughter have been in and out of family court in Lenoir County, North Carolina for the past 6 months where her parental rights, civil rights and human rights have all been violated at the hands of the Family Court Judge, Beth Heath, Attorney James Perry, and the DSS who as of yet have any record of child abuse compliants on record that have been filed by our family and the Sheriff's Department. We live in Georgia and have had to travel back and forth every other weekend to North Carolina with a 6 month old infant for visitation with a father who pays no child support and has assaulted my daughter and grandaughter on one of their visits. I am outraged at the unfair and down right abusive treatment they have received in NC. The victims have no rights only the abuser. The whole system needs a good colon cleanse starting at the top all the way down. I can now understand why families take justice into their own hands to keep their love ones safe and protected from those who are being paid by us the taxpayers to keep them safe. May Karma come back around and punish these officials for the wrongs they have done and continue to do.
I was raising my grandson and had been since birth. My daughter didn't live w me but my grandson did. The father hadn't been in his life and didn't ever try to be. The cps came in and not 1 but 3 cps workers. Someone had made a call on my daughter for drug abuse and they tried to get my attention while the other woman actually tried to open my son n husbands be door..just to peek in. No!! She was already nosing around and went too far as it was and my grandson was w me in the lr..he was clean healthy happy and safe. They told me not to talk to my daughter not to call her and they called 2 days later n told me I had to bring him to the local dhhr office or I'd be arrested for kidnapping. Tht was the beginning of hell for me. I couldn't drive nor could my husband..we were crying so bad. I didn't want to let him go..but they said I had to fix my house up and build another room for my grandson..we had to get my older son to pick him up and I can tell everyone..its the most terrible heartache. They sent my daughter to rehab but didn't do anything to try and really help her. I was getting her to b self sufficient sign up for housing etc. Tht was part of them job..but they didn't do anything and told me to cooperate and fix my place..we did everything tht they said and I sent pics documents letters etc to the judge but not once did the cps court judge anyone ever ask me if I'd take care of my grandson. I got the court to let my step mom to foster til I could get the room built etc. Thts all they did but I got him out of a cramped foster home. Now I was willing to keep taking care of my grandson for no money..n had been..but the state of WV would rather pay almost 700.00 a month for fostering. Tht don't make any sense to me..If take care of tht child for free. The father and his pregnant girlfriend now has him and won't let me or my family see him..and this is wrong. I formed a bond w my grandson and thts just how it is. I worry about him every day. They won't ask the family to take the kids in..theyll run w them..stick them in foster homes n put them up for adoption and something has to be done now.The whole system is corrupt and if hate the cps so bad..whats these kids going to think about them and the system?? They'll hate as bad as we all do. They are our future..I say stand up n take notice..this can happen to anyone. I'll continue to fight!
what about the WV child sex offender from Elkins that was given custody of her 3 young sons. her offence was against an underage boy.
Illinois DCFS, Wisconsin DCF, and the Illinois family court system have continuously violated my civil rights and my parental rights. They have also broken the law by doing exactly what the law prohibits. These are the names of several people that need to be criminally prosecuted for violating the law: Callie Broege from DCFS in Rockford, Illinois, Christine Hinkle DCFS counselor in Rockford, IL, Judge Nordquist from Winnebago County family court, Jaime Benedict GAL from the Rockford, IL family court case, Bacia Pehi the social worker for DCF in Kenosha, WI, and many others. Justice needs to be served so parents that have been in similar situations need to sign this petition. Thanks to those that have already signed it and thanks to those that sign it after I sign it.
So please to the people with the power that are destroying famlies and lives...youve caused me enough pain, heart ache, youve destroyed my family which destroyed my life already...please just stop doing this to people...i dont need any more pain caused from you peoples actions so even though i commented about and signed a petition that spoke the truth...just let me live the rest of my life with the little sliver of happiness left, because you already robbed me of the rest. Dont cause me anymore problems please. I know im a little fish in a big pond.
Also id like to say that i fully understand that these people have power and this system works well for THEM even though they are corrupt and they know
they are corrupt. They dont want
people like us rattling their cage. I hope they dont cause us any problems for speaking the truth. I thought of that when i signed this petition and commented on the subject, but its just so wrong i feel like i have to. How long are they going to be able to get away with destroying families and peoples lives? I just hope they wont be allowed to cause us even more harm then they already have for speaking out about the corruptionin their system.
Judge terrance a keith in detroit mi gave my four childern to their aunt who is on ssi for mental illness,fail a court ordered drugtest, admited in court to having my children in contact with a man who was convicted of molesting a 13 year old autist girl,lives of the goverment assistance she recieves for the kids as well as ssi, intimidates and beats the children, and the only reason she got guardianship of the children in the first place is because she made up lie after lie about me to keep them there to get this goverment assistance. The aunt was on ssi and welfare assistance since she was 15 and was her children were getting to old to get welfare for when she started this situation with my kidsand she only did this to us for that reason. I was dealing with wayne county courts for 7 1/2 years. I passed every drug test,proved every alligation the aunt made against me was false, had a job all that time and still do, passed every phycological evaluation,and had 3 social workers say that i should get my kids back. Still the aunt kept making up different lies and the wayne county probate courtsstill dragged this on for 7 1/2 years. Just 2 months ago the aunt petioned wayne county probate court to be able to take my kids to Georgia. Judge Terrance A. Keith granted her permission to take my kids to Georgia. When i tried to protest this Judge Terrance A. Keith screamed at me, wouldnt order visititation for me to be able to see my kids, and then threatened to hold me in contempt. I have not even spoken to my kids since. I have documentation to prove majority of this accept for the judge screaming.

I am a victim of corruption in both Montgomery and Schuylkill counties in PA. I am bewildered and disturbed be the level of corruption in family court in both locations. Makes me sick.
Judge Webb in Pasco county, FL took my babies with the help of ECA. They told me not to fight or I would lose anyways and if I had another child, they would take it. I left FL and had another child. Im in college and working full time. I'm healthy and doing well but everyday my heart breaks. Everyday I mourn the loss of my beautiful girls. I lost them because I was prescribed opiates by a doctor after an accident in 2009. I stopped taking the opiates when I began to feel less pain but it was too late. That judge is corrupt, the whole system is! My children did NOT deserve to lose their parents!
Torrington DCF has allowed our granddaughters to reside with people that supported neglect, aided in acquiring drugs and turned a blind eye on these activities yet were awarded Foster Parents of the year by Torrington DCF. And now in addition to our granddaughters, they foster 4 additional children. DCF never attempted to notify us when the parents were told to leave even though our son pleaded with them to do so. We want our granddaughters home where they belong. What a scam. Connecticut corruption at its best.
I've read some of the comments on here and they break my heart. The damage that is being done to children and families is criminal and all for the money and job security.
My family also suffered loss because of cps. Three of my granddaughters were taken because of a spanking. This makes no sense to me. I was spanked as a child and that taught me respect.
Once in foster"care" these three innocent little girls were beaten with belts, yelled at and neglected. When they were brought for visits their hair was matted and sticky, their nails had not been clipped, their teeth had not been brushed, they stunk and they were always hungry.
My daughter's right to the two youngest girls was terminated and they were adopted to strangers. The oldest was given to her dad and we get to see her every two weeks, which is nice but she's not happy and its not really a good situation.
Why is this still allowed to happen to innocent families? The "child protection" system is useless and harmful and should be refunded and disbanded. If we don't stand for families and against the abuse this will just go on and on.
My children and I have had our rights violated numerous times by CPS. I have never been substantiated of any form of abuse or neglect but two of my five kids will never live with me again because of social worker lies to the court, falsified information, abuse of power, SW misconduct and lack of accountability for social workers and no due process in dependency court. My kids were illegally kidnapped under the color of law to obtain federal funding!! I filed a federal lawsuit against the social workers and contracted agency. Unless things change, more families will take a stand and sue for SW misconduct, costing tax payers millions for the damages done to families. Please fix the system to prevent damaged families. It will cut down on our social security funds being used to illegally kidnap children.
My story starts off with my ex girlfriend that has mental condition and left with my baby boy Danny. She refused to get treatment and Cps was called to make sure my son was safe. Neatness to say now I am a bad person to and they never came to my house to interview me. The case work Ann Britenmister was always so rude to me and my family and she decided to place my baby boy with a family. I have not got to see him at all. I love my son but she think because I am only 18 I can't care for him and called me today saying if I don't comply with her request my son Danny with be place for adoption. There are people my age raising kids and people my age fighting wars, but I can't raise my son I love. I work to be able to provide for him. I have asked for a new case worker but haven't got any response. Can someone help me please.
In 2006 my two grandchildren were taken from my daughter. At the time this happened she was living in my home so were her children. Now I know that something needed to be done for my daughter, but not taking her children from her. She was living with me, I was taking care of the children, I loved both of the children with everything I had. The children had all of the love they could've possibly ever wanted. The kids were 4yrs and 2 yrs when CPS decided that they knew best, and took the kids from my daughter. That was the last time I saw my grandchildren. The state that I live in there are no grandparent rights here, so even if I could've gotten the money for an attorney, it wouldn't have done me any good. I was told many times by lawyers that because there were no grandparent laws to protect my rights, there was nothing that could be done. CPS ended up taking my daughter's parental rights from her a year later, with her rights went mine, I never got to visit the children, never got to see them again, and to top off everything else that had taken place, when my daughter learned that her rights had been taken from her, she took her life. So not only did CPS and family courts manage to take my grandchildren from me, they also managed to take my daughter from me also. As a matter of fact, the day that I called the CPS worker to tell her that my daughter had taken her life, she told me and I quote, :"This doesn't change a thing, you are still not getting custody of the children".
This is how they throw their weight around, this is what they do to families. CPS, family courts, the court appointed attorney, and a organization called CASA, all need to be thrown in prison for the things they have done to families across the U.S. They are a crock of bull if you ask me. They made up so many lies to get what they wanted that it was unreal. I've never in my life ever hurt a child, never will hurt a child, but yet before it was over with, I had been placed on CPS child abuse list. I wasn't even named in the neglect/abuse case, but yet in order to prevent me from seeing or having contact with my grandchildren, they ended up seeing to it that they put me on the list. I still don't see how that took place. CPS ruined my life, my daughter's life, and my grand children's lives. We even found out that my grandchildren were placed for adoption almost a full year prior to the court taking my daughter's parental rights from her. Now if that's not going some!!
Please, please, please do something to stop these people! I realize that no one can ever fix what was done to my family, but if I telling my story to you and signing this petition will stop this from happening to another innocent family out there, then I'll shout my story from the rooftop of the capitol. Please help these families!!! We are counting on you hearing us.
only in America Juvenile Justice Courts can they not only violate your rights and their own code of ethics by not remaining impartial, they can strip the disabled parents of their service animals to cause further suffering. I addressed my concerns that my civil rights had been violated when they forced their way into my home, officers however waited outside on the sidewalk, they claim there were exigent circumstances... what the hell ... they had already abducted my child, the house wasn't on fire, no one's live or property were in danger... this caseworker went on to say that "It's the law" and that I had to allow her into my home. It would almost be comical, but the frightening thing is that these types of things are happening right now in our country... they cannot say its not public corruption as they have just earned 86,000 in federal money for stealing my daughter.
