My case is in weld county, bu the same thing is happening here to these Judges, especailly the Magristrates (Tuttle) are not believe the woman when they say are being abused and than they are putting the children in the home of the abuser. I was married to my x-husband for 10 years and lived in fear of telling anyone about the verbal, emtional,mental and physical abuse, because it would just make things worse for myself and my children. It will be 2 years November 2nd 2007 that my girls were handed over to my xhusband to raise and I was put on supervised visits to see my children and yet he is the one that should be supervised. The courts are NOT Looking out for the best interest of the Children nor are they trying to protect the woman from the abuser. I am met daily with my x-husband's abuse because of my three presious little girls are with him, crying that they don want to be with their father. The courts didn't act on some of the evidence that what presented and now these three little girls are suffering at the courts hands, because not only do the have the absuing Father, but the also have a step mother that is abusing them. Justice needs to be served for the CHILDREN and the mother's (could even be Father's) of domestic abuse. It is more of a epdemic than other diseases that are in our world and the court's need to go through extensive training so that they are able to see the abuser's manipulative and controlling personality. Something needs to be done. Look in Greeley on Monday a woman was killed by her soon to be x husband and she had a restraining order on him. This situation is not getting any better it is getting worse and if we don't do something about it now and stop these sick minded people than the woman of the abuser and the children most of all are going to pay the ultimate price for the courts not fully understanding what an abuser is and what they are capable of. Judges need to be held accountable for the actions that are taken at their own hands because they are not willing to believe the abused woman that they were even abused. They have no idea they don't or haven't lived in our shoes as abused woman. Don't assume you know what is going and than down the road you have made a wrong decision and have put a child or children and a woman (mother) in a very dangerous spot with the abuser. Wake up Weld County and Lamier County are not looking at the BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN nor for the Mother's or the abused woman.Something needs to be done with the judical teams that we have. They just can't make rulings on whatever mood they wake up in the morning is going to determine their judgements on the cases presented in front of them. Look how many woman have been murdered by their x-husband's because the courts do not listen to them when the woman are standing in front of them stating that they have been abused, What is really sad that there are many innocient children loosing their Mom's to sick minded people.

I just now read how ignorant so many of you people are. Go to the library and learn Colorado law. If you touch your spouse, child, or anyone you have had an intimate relationship with it is considered DOMESTIC VIOLENCE! If you stoop to that level you deserve jail if not prison. Women are not objects, or sex toys, women need to be respected and not abused. And when you the have the balls to invole your children you are worthless, just like the Judge handling your case.
If you try to control an out of control teenager who punches you in the face and you tried to defend yourself, you have no recourse. get a grip and learn your laws. my ex always beat me and cut off phone. You need to experience the real worl, honey.d

Well folks, it's "update" time again...
Brief refresher; Support increased 10/6/08
Idiot chose not to pay
Contempt filed 2/25/09
Set for hearing on a Monday
CSE vacated hearing 3 days prior
Idiot never complied with financials
Idiot now owes $7K+ arrears

So, as usual I was left in perpetual limbo due to CSE/Colorado...They vacated the original hearing in hopes of getting the asshole to plead guilty to the contempt in exchange for deferred sanctions...That was back in July...
What have I been doing?...Raising complete hell with everyone...
My rights, as well as the rights of my son, ARE being violated and I've got them dead to rights (pun intended) on that issue...Not my rules, it's Colorado LAW that dictates what "rights" I have...
I put the hammer down with both Colorado and California, and demanded an EXACT date for this to be settled, or I would turn it over to a private support collection agency to deal with...Neither liked that option, as the agency would also collect interest and name names to the presiding Judge as to just "who" hasn't been doing "what"...Namely CSE/Colorado whose been letting the asshole drag it out...
It truly befuddles me how any supervisor at CSE in Colorado would be willing to allow a worker to ignore such a high arrears balance without action...I know that any other business would shit-can an employee who ignored that kind of debt...
The real kicker for those who have been following my case - I owed exactly $1,006.00 when I was wrongfully sent to jail...He owes exactly $7,699.54 in arrears, and they haven't done SHIT to him...No license suspension (which is mandatory when anything over $500.00 in total payments have been missed) as he was spotted driving last week (he wouldn't chance it if he was suspended)...His business license is still in good standing (yet another avenue of enforcement CSE has chosen to ignore) as he's still making money...He's not in jail as, well, he's not in jail...
So I keep stirring the pot, not giving a shit who I piss off at this point...
Finally, after 3 months of hearing NOTHING from anyone, I get a phone call from my worker out here...I guess the asshole has agreed to plead guilty to the contempt, I know nothing of what deferred sanctions are being offered (none, if I have it my way), but they should have been pulled completely off the table the minute he refused to cooperate (MHO, of course)...Maybe, just maybe, it will go to court on Jan 4, 2010...1 year, 2 months and 29 days after the orders were set...
What no one knows yet is that I'm going to be making a few requests myself...Such as a "purge" payment of a chunk of the arrears BEFORE any deferred sanctions are considered...He's got the money, and it's owed fair and square...I will demand that he not only remain current with the ORDERED support, but that he be required to pay an additional percentage towards the arrears balance that's left after the "purge" payment...
I don't think that's too much to ask from someone whose fucked with CSE, the Courts, and his kids...

However, should the courts disagree with my wishes, I still reserve the right to use an outside agency to collect my money...I've found one that will take 30% of what they collect...It may seem like a lot, but remember they collect the interest too (unlike CSE)...The way I see it, it would amount to a little over $2K to collect what's currently owed and, by then he'll be locked into the sanction agreement to remain compliant...

There's an awful lot to be said about having a "Plan B"...

More to come...

It's that time again folks, but this is a MAJOR update...
Dumbass will be facing the Judge, likely on February 1, 2010, and it is not at all good for him...
Some very interesting things have occurred in the past month that have played into this...First, I'm now back on speaking terms with our oldest son, and he's pissed...He is so disappointed in his Dad that he refuses to even talk to him (How does it feel, asshole?)...Why?...Because he's now been abandoned by him as well in favor of the "Pet Psychic"...She is the one behind the mess that's going on right now, but unfortunately she won't be the one who has to pay for her bullshit...Her days are numbered however, as her SOLE means of financial support will be in jail...
Then I found out that the asshole is not only supporting her, he's supporting her 33 year old leech of a daughter as well...She, too, will join her Mother in the realm of being BROKE when this goes down...
CSE in Colorado has officially been forced to act...According to my worker out here, CSE in Colorado received a sternly written letter from Gov. Ritter demanding immediate action in my case, and answers as to "why" nothing has been done thus far (I still hope the door doesn't hit Ritter in the ass on his way out though)...She also told me that yes, I have been right all along (imagine that) about his income, his shady business practices, his hiding of money, his tax fraud, etc... and that CSE in Colorado was, in fact, waiting around for the assholes lawyer to file another Motion for Modification...Not a smart move on their part, as it's certainly biting them in the ass now...And I will NOT forget to include this information during the upcoming hearing, regardless of who gets butthurt...

My next move is to see if I can get the "Pet Psychic" charged with some form of "accessory" to the Class 5 Felony for Non-payment of Support, the tax fraud, and the fraudulent transfer of assets (the money is in HER bank account)...I will be researching this and contacting the necessary people to insure that she doesn't get off on her part in this whole mess...I will be mentioning every bit of this to the presiding Judge at the hearing as well, and maybe he can tie her into the criminal prosecution of the asshole...They can't even slap liens on his property because he put it all in her name...FRAUDULENT TRANSFER...

So here we are, some 15+ months AFTER the orders were issued, nearly 1 year since CSE in Colorado first filed Contempt, and it looks like it's going down...
That being said, I'm not holding my breath...ROFLMFAO!!!

Hey Hussie! Glad to hear you and your son are speaking again...that's great! And I'm shocked about the Ritter thing...wow...good for you! And good for those like you with CSE. Maybe you will have actually made change with all of your fighting. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Thanks...
You see, I simply have no qualms about raising hell with anyone, including Ritter and Schwarzenegger, over this bullshit...The LAW states that my son and I should not be suffering due to the Obligor's refusal to pay, or due to CSE's inaction...I simply took the time to remind them of this...
I'm way past the point of giving a shit who gets offended, none of them seem to care what this has done to us...However, I've made it blatantly clear to all of them that I will not stop, nor can they make me...The order remains in effect for another 2+ years, and the best suggestion I can offer them is the same thing the Judge is going to say...DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to make sure the order is upheld and enforced...CSE in Colorado will be answering for their part in this bullshit...They were more concerned with waiting for the assholes lawyer to file a new motion for modification than they were with doing their job, and the Judge just has to hear that one...I will also inform the Judge of how the asshole refused to comply with submitting his income information, even when CSE subpoenaed it back in May...Then we'll just have to discuss the many criminal offenses the asshole has committed in an effort to avoid his obligation...Credit fraud, tax fraud, fraudulent transfer of assets to avoid debt, willful non-payment of support...It ought to be interesting...
I'll let you know...

Shit girl, I would be elated just to be a fly on the wall at that hearing, since I can't spare the extra $$$ to go...The look on his face will be PRICELESS...Genuine YouTube shit, ya know?...
Maybe I'll post the hearing schedule, and recruit some Homies to video it for me...
Or maybe I'll find me a "minor" to pay a visit to his bitch while he's in jail...

Well folks, we FINALLY have a hearing date...
3/1/10 will be D-Day for the asshole...

I spoke with the County Attorney this morning, and they're just as fed up with his antics as I am...She said she put in a call to the assholes attorney, but if she didn't call her back they would proceed without her...Guess she didn't call back...

At any rate, I'm looking forward to resolution...She asked that I fax her the documents I have regarding his business, and the stunt he pulled there as well as ones that show girlfriend as the sole homeowner...She's now aware of everything else I found out, and will act on that information accordingly...
We shall see...
