How Much Is Enough? DCSS, Court Crooks and the Transfer of Wealth
“Sam” is a parent caught in an awful child custody and support battle whom I interviewed extensively over half a decade.
Sam is a licensed school teacher. Sam is really good with young people. Sam goes to church and understands biblical principles. Sam was given basically no contact with Sam’s own child during a family law case that spanned 18 years and spilled over into the dependency courts.
Sam was investigating appointed minor’s counsel William Spiller when my writing about corrupt court officials came up and we were connected.
Sam’s ex works for the government; a fire department. Sam’s ex brings home over $100,000 per year in salary.
Sam is supposed to pay the ex $100,000 in child support arrears. Sam is not allowed to have a passport. There is a threat of losing Sam’s teaching credentials. There is a threat of losing Sam’s driver’s license. Money is taken by levy from Sam’s bank account and pay checks.
Sam is a woman, but gender is not the issue anymore. Sam is a once affluent African-American. Race is no longer an issue.
Once a human decides to sever intimate relations with the other parent of her child, bureaucrats including judges and Department of Child Support Service workers force the human to let them decide what “the best interests” of the children are, what percentage of the human’s money should be spent on the children, and who will decide how that money is spent. Of course the bureaucrats take a percentage off the top for themselves, their campaign contributors and other cohorts.
Is this “in the best interest of the children”? Not.
