How do those who feel completely abandoned by any hope of receiving justice, get their point across to the Family Courts?
This is justice which should be meted out after the due process of positive proof has been offered, all witnesses examined and cross-examined to the point where the reasonable man on the street can arrive at a reasoned conclusion?
And where the accused (mostly we men) are deemed innocent till proven otherwise.
Proof which is founded on hard evidence, corrobarated by parties of sound mind and age. Not unfounded allegation, opinion, and malicious suggestion.
It seems one way is to bring the court’s attention to the fact that a very significant proportion of the population has lost faith in its integrity. Surely, no greater negative comment can be made of any court in any land than, ‘We, the general public no longer trust you’re impartialty or integrity,’ the very statement which has been made on countless thousands of occasions at this site.
No such comments would ever be levelled at the Criminal Court because the evidence given is properly tested and, at the end of the day a judge or jury have sufficient information upon which to make an informed decision.
But I return to the question….How do we get the Family Court to recognise such a significant loss of faith?
It seems clear to me that the protest movement is having some level of impact; quite what that level happens to be is in the realm of conjecture.
What about writing to the court? Would such letters be either accepted or even read? Perhaps.
But I’ve just discovered a sure-fire way of encouraging the Court to read our fears.
Since February, I have written about seventy posts to the convenor of this site, most have been published. I was also warned, very early on, by John, that CYFS regularly monitor this site and have been known to take ‘injudicious’ posts to court.
And so I have made very sure none of my posts have been injudicious, but I have striven to make them pointed. I have also purposely named some of the actors in the grim and child- destroying play in which I am involved.
Some of you may remember I openly invited Lizzie Curtis (Waitakere CYFSterhood and champion for the total destruction of my grand-daughter’s entire life) to use my posts in evidence; or at least bring them and many of the replies to the attention of the Court.
In my wildest dreams I never really believed she would be so pavlovian. But I kept ringing the bell hoping against hope that Lizzie would make a shot at opening the food container.
Bugger my gumboots. Today Lizzie has filed 43 pages of various transcripts of my posts and many others! By filing them Ms Curtis has, ipso facto, required of the Court to read and assimilate each one! Thus she has achieved, on our behalf, that which we didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of achieving. Ergo, having the Family Court read and give due legal consideration to our fears and loss of faith in the Family Court system.
I fully appreciate the reading judge will be more than mildly miffed at some of the posts. But the fact remains, there is little and diminishing confidence that the Family Court delivers justice.
I can but trust the presiding judge will sublimate his annoyance in favour of concentrating on the complete lack of substance Lizzie’s various affidavits have offered. And, further, give due consideration to our collective concerns.
It is fair to assert the Court is persuaded by the CYFSterhood reports which, especially in my case, are about as unbiased as a slave-trader’s belief in human freedom. But perhaps, having read the various posts which the lovely Lizzie has included in her affidavit, the Court just might stop and ponder.
All we wish to have happen is for just one judge to ask, ‘Are we being rail-roaded by CYFS?’ If we get just that one thought to gain substance then perhaps many thousands of future families and the attendent children will not be destroyed by the palpable haters of men…..certainly the Waitakere CYFSterhood and associated Lawyers for Child….and we know who they are, don’t we?
So there you go. Sometimes even (apparently unqualified) social workers have some useful input into our cause to gain proper justice from the Family Court system.:–))
On behalf of all of us, Lizzie. Please allow me to say a huge thank you. You have achieved for us what we could never have hoped to achieve by direct approach.
Ding,Ding, Lizzie! Bell’s ringing. Dinner time! :–)) You should just about have time to attach this post to another affidavit before 10 am tomorrow. :–)) C’mon Liz. Please? Pretty please?
