I importunately had a divorce case involving this reckless and heartless GAL. She made unfounded decisions involving my children and I am not facing thousands to try to save my kids and fix what she has done. One of my children went from straight a's to failing and in and out of psych institutions. She placed my children in the custody of unknown relatives in another state with family and friends in this one. And before you jump to conclusions I have NO drug/alchohal/legal charges or problems, no DSS issues. Im just a very average 25k a year mom who is going to school. Has anyone else run into problems with this lunatic or other GALS She has destroyed my sons lives.

Gee honey, sounds like you married the wrong woman.

Do you think you Rug Munchers get to avoid the same problems as heterosexual marrages encounter?

Yes Greene Co. has a problem .
Placement is so high we're having to use other counties to place children.
No, the juniville officers dont always explain the preliminaries of the case in a correct manner when asking the judge for an initial seizure and extension of the child. The rest blindly following suit .
Its a true shame when a GAL hasnt taken the time to meet with their client (the child) before walking into court.

BUT -
We do have is a check system and thats the judge .
When a judge has an unfounded case brought before him, he has no problem scolding them as he throws it out. Not all GALs act with such unprofessional conduct and our judges have no problem telling them when.

My biggest concern is this "blind following" Green Co. has.

So I can see your point, but I also know how this works and there had to be enough put before that judge or he would not of risked his place on the bench without warrent.

Keep in mind a child has the right at 18 to file their own lawsuit if in fact their civil rights were violated. What most of these parties realize, theres a certain amount of immunity on their part. Which I feel is the crux of this problem.

Guardian Ad Litem. They are court appointed to make sure the child's needs are met duing a divorce. Unfortunately, they like every other human left unchecked, have allowed the power they have been given, to overtake the purpose of the job.

Let me just say- gays cannot marry, therefore they don't need divorces. Adults should not have to explain that.. It should be knowledge.

I am having similar problems with Ms Masters whose name is now Prater-Seery. Is there absolute immunity for guardians who do not present the truth in court? Isn't there any city or start agency this ca be reported to?

Lisha masters-prater?- was a money hunger witch, who was unwilling to put her bias aside. Even today I live with the really bad decision she made in 2009 to send my children to live with their mom after 10 yrs. of full custody. She made this decision before even meeting me in person. Sleeping on the couch at my ex-wife's boyfriend's 1 bedroom apartment was good enough living quarters for my children. Unfortunately, there is to much B.S. to mention of what took place over a span of 13 months at the hands of this woman. For five years I have had to witness all the predictions come true, that I made in Lisha masters-prater? office in 2009. I only wish that Guardian ad litems would be held accountable for damages that they have caused and be subject to civil lawsuit for their piss poor decisions. I will never forget or forgive what this person did to me as a father.

I am so sorry to read all these posts about the abuse you have all had to deal with at the hands of this power hungry individual. Please pray for a good friend of mine who was married to her for 14 years. If you think you have had it bad with her, you can times that by 100 and not even come close to what he puts up with. I also had dealings with her myself when my ex husband hired her. She is not logical, completely out of reality and needs to be reported to the BAR. Good luck.....Just breathe is all I can say.

She was the Guardian Ad Litem on my case and she did a fantastic job. Seems to me like you people are the ones who were mistreating your kids and you are just pissed she did what the Court needed her to do. She also wrote off a huge portion of my fee so I do not know where you are getting that she is money-hungry.

I guess you need to ask yourselves....why is a GAL needing to be assigned to the case? Not every divorce which has children involved has a GAL assigned. GALs are typically assigned when there are allegations of abuse or neglect of the children. So, to that end. What was there a GAL assigned to your case?

To: Wow what idiots post here -
I am a CASA volunteer and work with GAL's. Please read the Missouri Statute 452.423. Please also note, that GAL's are NOT ONLY appointed if there is abuse or neglect. They are appointed when there are custody, visitation or support issues that are contested. Please ensure that when quoting or discussing these type of issues, you have the facts. This is a forum that could help someone in the future.

Missouri Statutes §452.423 Guardian ad litem appointed, when, duties--disqualification, when--fees.
452.423. 1. In all proceedings for child custody or for dissolution of marriage or legal separation where custody, visitation, or support of a child is a contested issue, the court may appoint a guardian ad litem. Disqualification of a guardian ad litem shall be ordered in any legal proceeding only pursuant to this chapter, upon the filing of a written application by any party within ten days of appointment, or within ten days of August 28, 1998, if the appointment occurs prior to August 28, 1998. Each party shall be entitled to one disqualification of a guardian ad litem appointed under this subsection in each proceeding, except a party may be entitled to additional disqualifications of a guardian ad litem for good cause shown.

2. The court shall appoint a guardian ad litem in any proceeding in which child abuse or neglect is alleged.

If it makes you feel any better, what goes around comes around. That witch is divorced now and I hear from people that go up against her she is more evil and angry now than she was 10+ years ago LOL!
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving POS ! I sure would like to have a chat with her ex-husband, can you imagine the dirt he knows about that sick human being.
