Petition to DC Superior Courts Probate Div, Attorney General Senior Judges, Superior Court of District, Tee Smith

Remove my aunt from the ward of DC and terminate conservatorship.

DC government kidnapped my aunt. Helen Walker became the ward of the District of Columbia, January 2020. Somehow social services became involved without the families' knowledge or consent. A social worker came out for a home visit then told the courts all kinds of lies to take custody. The social worker stated my aunt was medically incompetent. Her house was messy. She was outside with no shoes, involved in a car accident, and behind on her bills. The social worker's statements were false. Aunt Helen could renew her driver's license and file her income taxes. The social worker or courts had no evidence that my aunt was incompetent (i.e., No medical documentation, No MRI or CT Scans were done).  The courts appointed three attorneys. For what? The courts have charged my aunt over $30,000 for the three attorneys and three court hearings conducted over the phone.  The judge removed me as guardian without explanation, revoked my power of attorney, and appointed a conservator who refused to meet my aunt. We had to fight because the conservator wanted to sell her home and place her in assisted living. No one from the court has been out to check on her well-being. The conservator charges $14,000 a year until she passes away. If we move her in with family, the conservator still gets paid and has never laid eyes on my aunt. I have always cared for my aunt. I was there when she had a hip replacement in 2006. My aunt has been living with me for over a year.  The courts took my aunt's PENSION and SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS redirected to a trust account. The conservator freely writes checks for herself and other agencies willing to go along with this thievery. At this point, $300,000 has been taken, and the conservator closed her accounts.  The judge never asked if the family would be willing to act as her caregiver. We hired an attorney, and again, the judge ruled against the family. My aunt doesn't have estate planning, and the conservator suggested making her the will's executor. These vultures are running through her assets. I asked the conservator if she knew if my aunt was alive?  Call To ActionWe want the courts to terminate the conservator and remove her as the ward of the District of Columbia. The family should be her guardian if there is a health issue. Your support is essential.

#FREEBRITNEY Replace Britney Spears’ Lawyer IMMEDIATELY & Investigate Her Conservators

On June 23rd, 2021 Britney Jean Spears testified in a Los Angeles probate court as to the abuse and inhumane medical care she has experienced for the past 13 years as a conservatee trapped within an abusive conservatorship. Ms. Spears detailed how she has an IUD implanted without her consent, and her conservators refuse to allow her to have it removed. Ms. Spears states she wants to "start a family and have a baby," and the conservatorship is not allowing that. The IUD in question is a direct violation of Ms. Spears' unalienable human rights. According to the United Nations, this constitutes involuntary sterilization. This petition seeks to open a full investigation through the appropriate parties into Ms. Spears' claims of abuse as they include serious human rights violations. As stated in her testimony on Wednesday, Ms. Spears feels both her conservators and management "belong in jail" for the abuse they have inflicted upon her for over a decade. While we wait for the California judicial system to police itself on this issue, we are seeking accountability from the appropriate federal agencies and state lawmakers. The #FreeBritney movement is a grassroots, civil, human, and disability rights issue. Ms. Spears pleaded to the public and Judge Brenda Penny for help in escaping this abusive conservatorship and yet, despite her powerful testimony remains under the care of the same people she states have abused, tortured, and traumatized her. We need to act now and replace her court-appointed attorney immediately, which is what Ms. Spears explicitly pleaded for on June 23rd 2021. We demand an investigation into all allegations of abuse as well as a thorough accounting of all excess fees paid from the estate of Ms. Spears since the creation of this conservatorship to her team. The #FreeBritney movement includes doctors, lawyers, and a plethora of other experts who have studied the public conservatorship records for years. We have reason to believe financial crimes have been occurring behind the scenes of this conservatorship resulting in a 9-figure financial loss for Ms. Spears. We need to act now. #FreeBritneyNOW

#FreeATeen, isolated teen with developmental disability needs a Nationwide advocate!

#FreeATeen #1FreedomNoGuardianship A teen with developmental disability needs his Civil Rights, no residential custodian in control; no Guardianship, conservatorship. IE:  #FreeBritney movement … Please share if you know others at risk of “guardianship, conservatorship” concerning a child/teen with disability, have verifiable information and want to be part of a TV segment/film! Those with disabilities deserve all available supports to ensure the best possible health and well-being. A primary residential custodian-father is choosing Not to provide: life and career skills, socialization, a therapist etc. while mom tried to give this child a voice via court for 15+ years, yet the court is under the father’s thumb because he has “National For-Profit” lawyers. The father used the Covid Pandemic as an “excuse” to isolate the teen since the year 2020 and prior to that. Thus, the primary custodian-father is choosing to violate court order and the child is then no longer provided his court ordered time with his maternal family: his mother, his siblings, aging grandparents, and cousins. Too often children and teens are fearful and silent, feeling like no one cares about their personal needs. This is a platform to ensure the children’s needs are met with all available support services and socialization. Global and Nationwide Experts, lawyers and non-profit advocates are needed now to "level the playing field" to give this teen and others Their Voice and that of Both Parents in the United States of America and Worldwide regardless of who has Money America is supposed to be "free of discrimination against people with disabilities; where people with disabilities are valued, integrated members of society who have full access to education, homes, health care, jobs, families, voting, and civic engagement." (https://www.aclu.org/issues/disability-rights This teen has said:“Please help me, daddy controls me, I am in danger, hearts are breaking, I am having a break-down, my life is over…” The local lawyers told mom to:“Give up and walk away from your child and hope that he does not commit suicide”. This teen and everyone deserve the right to be heard as otherwise, many are held as if “ransom, hostage” by a residential custodian simply because they are motivated to litigate; solo guardian/conservatorship. Who are the strong advocates to lend a powerful sympathetic ear to bring this teen and other people their civil rights, freedom, independence—the life opportunities that everyone deserves? Please take a moment to share this with those can help protect against guardianship/conservatorship. If passed into law, the “Free Britney Act” would give individuals under a legal conservatorship or guardianship the right to ask for their court-appointed private guardian to be replaced with a public guardian who is “free from financial conflicts of interest.” (https://www.cnbc.com/2021/07/20/britney-spears-conservatorship-case-prompts-bipartisan-free-britney-bill.html Would you kindly share this and help?
