This happened to my daughter. She was sleeping, with her 9 month old baby. Her husband took the 3 year old to the Walmart. It was 10pm. He got into an
accident, and they summoned her to the hospital. I took her, because their only vehicle had just been crashed.
When we got there, they charged her with neglect for ALLOWING him to take the 3 year old to the store at 10 at night, and seized the 9 month old. She
didn't even know he left and went to Walmart, because she was sleeping. This, they claim, is where the neglect came in. How do you watch the kids
24/7? How do you not trust your spouse? The whole thing seemed almost absurdly funny, had it not been so horrifyingly, shockingly, REAL.
They then made her jump through impossible hoops, forced them to divorce, she could not get the babies back if he was living with her, because of his
"greivous negligence". Seems all would have been fine, had it been daylight. Somehow, that it was 10pm, and she "should have been in bed asleep". Says
who?! They were not allowed to speak on the phone, nor have any contact. He had to literally leave the state as one of their "conditions".
All the while she was living alone, paying her rent, paying all her bills, they made her take drug tests twice a month for one year which she had to
pay for, (Note: for no reason, she had not failed any drug test, nor did they have a reason to test her, it was just another way to make her spend
40.00 twice a month), take parenting classes, which she had to pay for, and go to counseling once a month. She only got once monthly supervised
visitation, and was paying 800.00 a month in child support. She made too much to qualify for any assistance, ESPECIALLY because the kids were gone.
After one year, after completing everything, financially draining us and her, they kept pulling, every 3-6 months, MORE hurdles, hoops, and costs, out
of thin air.
They constantly drug it out, telling her, "You will get the kids back in 2 more months, if you just do this!"
Then, each time, they would come up with something new. After one year, they raised the child support to 1200.00 a month. Already finacially at the
edge of what we could muster, that was it. The end.
Then, at the same time, she lost her job. There was nothing she, or we, could do, and they forced her to sign custody over to the state. She was
evicted, because they took all of her money, and she could not pay her rent. "Well, you certainly cannot get them back if you have no place to live!"
After she got a new job, "Well, you have to live there for 6 months with no late bills or late rent, THEN you can get them back!" Who makes this crap
up?! Have you seen homeless women with children? I know I have...
The children, my grandchildren, were adopted out, and even then, they continued to take every penny she had from bank accounts, etc., even seized her
paychecks when she got a new job, even though she had given up custody, and they had been adopted.
She had to sue them to get her money back. The judge only gave her two months in back support, though they stole over 6 months. The courts DID give
her an attorney, but even he was useless against the power known as DFACS.
This is all designed to make it impossible for families to get their kids back. It is designed to drain every penny, and DFACS now forces the parents,
not taxpayers, to pay support.
If you are unemployed, once you get a job, they instantly garnish you for back payments.
They destroyed her and her husbands' lives, and stole her babies, my grandchildren, from our arms, and there was literally NOTHING we could do.
To this day, four years later, I still do not know who had my grandbabies, or if they are dead or alive. I am not allowed to, because I speak to my
