When one parent turns the child against the other parent for no justifiable reason, they are engaging in parental alienation. This dangerous behavior is more common that you would like to believe and occurs in many Texas divorces, especially those that are contentious. More and more, undeserving mother's are being shut out of their children's lives.
I have taken the proper steps to file the enforcement suit, but 6 months later find out the judge never signed off on my papers. After refiling, making sure the judge did her job, I walked the papers downstairs to have them issued to a Constable. I call a week later to check the progress and was told "I'm not sure why they haven't issued this". By the time a Constable received the order, the judge DWOP. This battle has emptied my joy. My daughter has become more distant, my son has lived through lies, manipulation, deceit and without his mother.
June 2013. I was never served documents about this custody case. I found out after my son was not being returned from a weekend visit, that he was granted default judgment due to the fact I did not go to court. Again, I was never served. He ceased all communication. Moved. The child support division and attorney general's office could only tell me I may not see or talk to my son until he's 18. He was only 3 at the time. For two years I used online searches for photos or addresses, friends would hear rumors so I would search cities, schools, other family members etc. Then I get a text one day with photos of my baby who isn't a baby anymore, he's almost 6. I text back. Nothing. I text. I text. I text. I text/call every day for the next three years, hoping, praying my baby will possibly be playing a game and maybe accidentally answer my call.
If only I had the family and financial support, I wouldn't be erased. I couldn't find a lawyer to listen unless I had money, or I was an immigrant or HBA said only emergency cases were being taken. This is an emergency, at least to me! I have text stating he doesn't want child support, texts from him belittling me, texts from his girlfriend telling me to do society a favor and quit reproducing. This torture has to end. If only that judge would have read the case file, maybe she would have had me served properly and I would have shown up to court to defend myself. What female judge doesn't ask herself or the court "where is this mother, let's find her". This mother was waiting for her son to come home only to find out he wasn't because her ex made false statements about her character and parenting. No one heard my voice, or even gave me a chance to defend myself.
Where is the Justice? Where is the heart in humanity? This is why citizens lose faith in our system. It fails us more than you think.
