I'm signing because what has happened in this case is a disgrace and I am going through a very similar situation in Westmoreland County. The system is not about the children. It is a money making scam by the county and the children are permanently scarred from the experience.

Im being told by a guardian ad litem that my soon to be ex husband should be awarded full custody. I have 6 kids and i have been accused of neglect from my ex.he succeeded in having my 3 babies removed from my home but yet i still have my 3 oldest. My ex is a drug addict, alcoholic, he has been in and out of rehabs ,he repeatedly beat me up and sometimes in front of my children, he currently has a dui and cant drive unless he blows into a breathalyzer, hes on steroids,he has been diagnosed with bipolar, manic depressant, borderline personality disorder, severe psychosocial, and abandoned child syndrome. He is also addicted to porn and strip clubs. He was fired a few months ago from an excellent job at the railroad for stealing property. But he deserves custody according to this GAL!?!?! I have none of his issues never have.ive always been the caregiver, the one who takes the kids to church, the cook,the taxi,i do everything for my kids.

Children's Right to live free of abuse are being ignored. In almost all cases labeled with the misnomer "high-conflict", where the AFCC is able to maximize their cash-flow, judges appoint supervised visitation for one or both parents.

I agree with every point made in this bill. Once passed in CT, it must be passed in every US state. Parents are not afforded even the most basic constitutional rights, while being forced to watch their children emotionally abused by judges, GALs, court personnel, and the other parent!

The same thing is happening in Texas. But CPS initiates the issues. There is Testimony by Carlos Morales from San Antonio who used to work for CPS. Everthing Nancy Schaefer tried to share. Then was murdered for is academy and true.

On Friday, April 10, 2015, during a public hearing before the Connecticut Judiciary Committee, the general public spoke their heartfelt grievances against the Connecticut Court System. It is my honest opinion after listening to the testimonies of these individuals concerning the travesty that they experienced in the Connecticut Court System that you do not need to be a legislator, an educator, an attorney or even a judge to know right from wrong. What I heard was people who were shackled, thrown in jail; coerced, and even ordered under duress that if they refused to sign their property over to their spouse that they would remain in jail. I heard stories where the court-appointed attorneys are charging people $100,000, $300,000 and even a million dollars in attorney’s fees. This is a Mafiosa mentality and way of conducting business which should constitute a violation of the RICO Act .There also should be laws to protect the public against Judges who have conflicts of interest and the attorneys who commit this travesty against the public.

It is also my opinion that if the Chief Judge for the State of Connecticut cannot clean up the judicial system, then the Connecticut State Legislature needs to step in and pass laws to ensure that these judicial travesties against people of color and poverty are rectified. The Chief Judge for the State of Connecticut has said that the “buck stops with her”. However, after hearing the testimonies of the General Public on Friday, the 10th of April, a better summation would be her attitude of “hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil” which is equivalent to a national leader being in a bunker during attack with their hands over their ears and in a fetal position waiting for the disaster to pass without offering a solution to the problem.

The Cannon Rule 2 .15 [responding to judicial and lawyer’s misconduct] (a) A judge having knowledge that another judge has committed a violation of this Code that raises a substantial question regarding the judge’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a judge in other respects shall take appropriate action including informing the appropriate authority. It would appear the Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers for the State of Connecticut has ignored this law.

It is time for some judicial accountability in the State of Connecticut. If the Judicial system has ignored this responsibility, they are abusing their discretion as judges, then the State of Connecticut legislature needs to step up to the plate and clean up the mess by enacting new laws to regulate judges abusing their power.
