I’ll try to make my story as short as possible
I’ll try to make my story as short as possible. I have two children and my ex wife had an affair, left me, took the children, and had her rich parents pay for her lawyer. I couldn’t afford a lawyer so I got screwed by the system at first. She also made so many false allegations against me that in the legal papers, I made OJ Simpson look like a choirboy. She left 3 1/2 years ago. Over time, I learned how to defend myself legally. She tried unsuccessfully to have visitation taken away from me.
Last week, LA County Department of children’s services took the children away from her and gave them to me. It was a cumulative case of psychological abuse against the kids and crazy false allegations against me and some of the children’s schools. I go to children’s court on the 27th.
My point is, hang in there. I never gave up fighting for my kids even though I never had a lawyer. It was tough and frustrating and the system sucks, but I do have a story to tell and can offer advice to other Dads. I also still may have questions.
