Hearing these experiences is making my stomach turn.
Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is not a myth. It is just amazing how a parent can make a system believe what they want them to. I've been defending myself from day one. How is it someone can just say something and everyone believes it. Is there no such thing as liars? Mediators need to look closer, DCSS needs to look closer and Judges need to make decisions that do take the child into consideration.

We have been embattled now with my parents for mine and my husband's daughters for 5 years.( All because we had no money nor health insurance at that time, we did what we did in our girls' best interests ). We still retain custody of our son. I have had to endure baseless allegations of child abuse and neglect, having a plan to kill my kids, and jumping through all the hoops that have been devised by the guardians and the courts. All to no avail. Not even 1 extra day of visitation in 2 1/2 years in litigation, nearly 3.( 2 years prior were spent trying to work it out outside of the legal system ). This with 3 different doctors saying I am perfectly capable of taking care of my girls, and that I love them dearly. But the courts in California particularly, only go by what the court investigator writes. Our court investigator has told the courts that if, and ONLY if, the guardians say it's ok for us to have more time with our girls, then she will be ok with recommending it. So basically, we now have a snow ball's chance in Hades of ever getting them back.
I have since decided that since the courts refuse to actually pay attention to our case,( it has been moved through 3 different courtrooms, 3 different judges, who ALL said the same thing, " I haven't had time to review your case, so I don't really know what's going on here".( One of these judges is Tari Cody, who gives kids back to parents addicted to crack and is active in the CASA project, but won't give us even 1 more day and neither of us have ever been arrested ) Wasting time and resources. So I have decided that it is time to take this case public. I see no other way for this to end. I also want to advocate for better legislation so that this NEVER happens to another family ever again. Also of note here, no other parties ( my kids have 3 sets of grandparents ) were notified by the now guardians as it is required by law to do. So they never got the opportunity to say that they could help out too and are now pretty much as cut off from our girls as we are.
By the way, the 'guardian' did this before, to myself and my Dad, costing us 30 years of venomous hatred. I didn't know until Oct. 2007 when I went to the courthouse and copied their divorce transcripts. That was when I saw her for what she really was/is, a monster. She is doing it again to myself and my daughters. Parental Alienation Syndrome does indeed exist. My Dad and I are survivors of this, but we lost so much time. I do not wish for this 'tradition' to continue, I couldn't bare 30 years or more of not having my girls in my life.
This is just a BRIEF summary of what is going on. In all technicalities, there are 115 motions filed in our case. We are spent emotionally, mentally, physically and financially. All we want is for our girls to come home and for this to NEVER happen to another family.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Angela Hannington
Sorry folks, but Angela is a liar and a child abuser. Her and her husband signed custody of their two girls because they did not want them because they were too "overwhelming". One of those girls was 3 years old when Angela had her committed at Loma Linda Mental Hospital. The hospital kept her for 3 or 4 days before returning her, because nothing was wrong with her. You see, Angela is lazy and rather than have to take care of her kids, she locked them in their rooms. Actually put those clasps on the outside of the doors. And please, don't take my word for it. Ask Angela. Ask her how the kids went to the bathroom in their rooms because she wouldn't let them out. Ask her how they smeared their own excrement on the walls or how they would hide food in their rooms so they would have something to eat. And then to top it all off, she blames their problems on the kids. They must have something wrong with them. She has in the past and continues to try and medicate them with harsh drugs. Angela Hannington is a child abuser.

Like you, I have been through and still going through the unimaginable. I am not going to give up because innocent children are the ones suffering. I am going to the Hall of Justice, Chief judge of CA, DA,Legislature.... whatever it takes. Anyone who would like to help put a stop to this horrible injustice please let me know. The more people the louder the voice.

I too agree with all of you in regards to the ventura county courts. Our children are suffering because of these judges bad choices of placing our children in thewrong parents hands.. If we cant rely on these so called professional judges to make the correct decision than who will help the children.. W e need to pull together to STOP this madness and save the children so that it STOPS right now!!!!

vs Rebecca Elliott. My life and sons lives were ruined by Ventura County Courts with the help of their Mother. My Ex Rebecca Elliott is a prime example of a person who Alienates children from the other parent. She was able to keep my Sons from me for over 10 years with the help of Ventura County Courts. I am exhausted. I have proof who wants to see it.

I need to be a part of this survey. What has happened to be is unbelievable. How do you feel in regards to a CPS agent working now as a family court mediator? Is this in the best interest of the child and parents? After researching I have found a growing trend with the family court mediation department hiring CPS agents. They have built a bridge between two departments that is influencing decisions being made by our courts for our families. This is wrong.

Well ...I was falsely accused by an ex...hit with 5 felonies on top of a prison prior and a prior strike in simi valley after the cops ("officer Smith") wrote a false and untrue police report (which could never be found when requested via discovery package) and was constantly trying to be co-erced by the district attorney and even my own public pretender... I was already I'm process of firing my public pretender oopw I mean defender for a conflict of Interest and hire a conflict defense attorney (free county paid) or possibly pro per since it was blatantly obvious these defenders work with Ventura county judges to just get the general public to pleade guilty which they constantly brain wash people.... Sign here and go home today on formal probation and fines and fees and a criminal record.... Non the less I am a Latino who challenges this system and racist crooked cop rampart wanna be simi cops and the court....1 year in court......and guesa what.....dismissed at jury trial.....NO WITNESS SUCKA .....LAST OFFER WAS 14 YEARS AND 2 STRIKES...EAT THAT FOR LUNCH SVPD

Please be aware that a former CPS agent has been working as a family court mediator. They have built the bridge between CPS and family courts. "It would be Like have a demolishing driver working as a school bus driver for our children.
