Let me first start by saying that when I give any information about what’s going on in my case, it only deals with my case. Since I have not had this happen to me before, and I hope that I never will again, I can only go by what I have seen in my case and then make judgments and opinions about what I feel is wrong with our court system. I’m sure that there are really good county lawyers and really good minor council out there, but in my case, I just don’t see it.
Maybe it’s just me, but it seems to me that state, county, appointed lawyers are in it only to try and win. Now I know what you are saying right now, “Duh!” But I really thought that those types of county lawyers (ones not getting paid by the case) were there to find out the truth and see if they could salvage the family unit. What an idiot I am, they are only in it to win no matter what the cost. I’ve looked at most of the evidence of my case, and it just saddens me to see how things get turned around to make you look like a less then mediocre parent. In my criminal case, there was a time that I had to take a polygraph test to try to prove my innocence, I took it and passed and this was one of the major pieces of evidence that helped me not land in prison for the rest of my life. You would think that the opposing council would think that this is just the kind of evidence we need to help us sort through all these bogus facts and finger pointing, but they did not want it entered into evidence. Why do you ask? (Even if you didn’t ask it, I’m pretending you did.) It’s because they are here to win, not to make things right or find out the truth. How does this make your little five year old feel? The court appointed minor’s council that your tax money pays for, and that represents YOUR child is not working for your child at all, they are working to win a case against you and put your children into foster care or at least in my case that’s how it is.
