Are Courts Destroying Families In N. Georgia?

….their oath to support, uphold and defend the US Constitution and GA Constitution. Judges that violate the constitutions and rights of

Georgia

inhabitants are guilty of felony official misconduct. These criminal Judges need to be removed from the bench and prosecuted.

The most damage being caused by these illicit Judges are in our family Courts. Children ultimately pay the largest price and are basically sacrificed for federal and state profiteering. Gender bias and criminal rulings from these Judges tear families apart and cause a downhill ripple effect that is destroying our society. There is nowhere in law or the Constitution that justifies the majority of family court rulings as legal, constitutional, and in the best interest of our children / families. The majority of these family court rulings fall more into the categories of bias, unethical, gender bias, and discrimination. One could also considering the terms “racketeering” for federal incentives, and “exploitation” of our children for profit. Or we could just put it in simpler terms as, crimes against humanity.

Having a daughter in 2003 born out of wedlock, being unschooled in

Georgia

Law

, I was a perfect candidate for a crash course in what it means to legally be a Father in

Georgia

.

The last few years I have witnessed personally from Judges and Attorneys gender bias, discrimination, and unethical behavior in the

Enotah

9th

District Court, of

North Georgia

.

I relocated myself and my business shortly after my daughter was born from

North Carolina

to

Georgia

, so I could help the mother as much as possible with our daughter. The mother and myself did not live together, so we took turns caring for our daughter. From approximately April 2004 thru October 2004, my daughter was in my custody every weekend and 1 to 3 days a week. The mother and I tried to live together in November 2004, but that was not successful and I was back living at my shop with my daughter before Thanksgiving. The routine of the previous 7 months continued concerning the caring of our daughter.

December 6th, 2004

I became involved in a relationship with a woman who later became my wife. I immediately told my daughter’s mother about it, she accepted it since she was also dating someone, and time went on without any custodial changes with our daughter. Then in January 2005, my daughter’s mother saw my fiancé and I with my daughter in Walmart and that was the beginning of a downward spiral. I had just moved from my shop to my fiancés home a few days after the Walmart incident when the mother came to my home and ripped my daughter from my arms and told me that I would pay for what I have done. Is not this some form of kidnapping? It would be almost a year from that date before I would ever see my daughter again, other than 2 or 3 brief visits at babysitters. The mother, with threats of a restraining order, harassment and abuse charges aimed at me, swiftly stopped my babysitter / daughter visits.

This was the beginning of the learning experience of a man not having any rights as a Father / Parent, because of having a child out of wedlock in

Georgia

. Little did I know the meaning of legitimation.

In the meanwhile on

March 14th, 2005

, I married my fiancé and have remained married since that date.

Finally on

May 9th, 2005

, after the mother consenting to legitimation, I became legitimized. This also gave my daughter the right to inherit my last name, which

Judge

Hugh

Stone

granted. At the end of the legitimating hearing, Judge

Stone

said, “Now that you are legitimized, you must file for visitation.” Why did not I get visitation that day? Bad attorney representation and a prejudice Judge’s decision is all I can logically ascertain. That same day, I went from the courtroom to the clerk’s office to file for full custody, hoping the worst that could happen was to receive 50/50 joint custody. A few days later after this hearing the mother filed a motion to over turn legitimation because she didn’t want our daughter having my last name. Thus I would not see my daughter for another 7 months.

On October 26th, of 2005 during depositions, out of duress, stress, and anguish of not seeing my daughter for almost a year, I signed a temporary consent order giving the mother temporary primary custody, along with giving me visitation rights to start immediately. I later found out that this was the most damaging mistake to my case that I could of possibly made with a custody trial pending.

On

November 3rd, 2005

at the Motion To Overturn Legitimation hearing,

Judge

Hugh

Stone

denied the motion yet changed my daughters name for the second time by inserting the mother’s maiden name, which she hasn’t used legally in over 20 years. My daughter at this hearing received her second middle name and this was her third legal name since birth. Remind you she was only 2 years old at this time.

In the meanwhile, my wife was being accused of witchcraft, being an unstable psychopath, etc., and the opposing attorney

Michelle

Vaughan

, was trying to get my wife’s ex-husband involved in the case that had a restraining order against him for battering my wife on the courthouse steps. My wife’s ex-husband was later indicted by the state and convicted of aggravated stalking. It didn’t seem to matter to anyone that my daughter and her mother had a convicted cocaine felon living with them.

On

January 3rd, 2006

Judge

Hugh

Stone

showed gender bias towards me at a Guardian Ad Litem and Psychological Evaluation Request hearing.

Judge

Stone

denied the request for Ad Litem because half the cost would be too much of a burden on the mother, yet ordered the Psychological Evaluations. He also said that half the cost for this also would be too much for the mother to pay, and ordered me to pay for the total cost of $2400.00.

Judge

Hugh

Stone

ordered the mother, my wife, and I to be evaluated.

The custody trial took place April 16th, 17th, and the final hearing day was on

May 17th, 2006

.

Judge

Hugh

Stone

never showed up the first day of trial and the case was assigned to retired substitute

Judge

Ralph

Hicks

. All three days of trial, Judge Hicks fell asleep after the lunch break and my attorney had to constantly object to anything to keep him awake.

Psychologist Dr.

Fred

Fussell

testified at the hearing and his professional opinion was that my wife and I were his first choice for primary custody, then I alone was his second choice, and thus the mother was his third and final choice. Needless to say, Judge Hicks ignored the psychologist’s testimony. The only testimony Judge Hicks was interested in was mine when the opposing attorney was trying to determine the amount of child support I should pay. After the final hearing date of

May 17th, 2006

, Judge Hicks ordered each attorney to submit a final order draft. It would be until

September 19th, 2006

before we would here anything from this judge.

Judge

Hugh

Stone

’s office called Judge Hicks to signed the final order submitted by opposing attorney

Michelle

Vaughan

. This final order was signed at

Judge

Stone

’s office. It was very obvious and suspicious that

Judge

Stone

was involved in this final order, although he never heard any of the evidence and testimony. The ruling stated that I was to be given 4 days a month visitation and to pay 48% of my income as child support for one child.

On September 26th, 2006 while still in total disbelief of the ruling, knowing this was a violation of my constitution rights as a parent when it comes to 50/50 custody for two fit parents, I filed a motion to reconsider and for new trial. I would not hear another thing from Judge Hicks until December 1st, when, without explanation, he denied the Motion To Reconsider. Could it of been that my attorney leaked information to this Judge that I was considering asking him to recuse himself for incompetence? Yes, of course it was I later found out.

On

December 30th, 2006

I filed a Motion To Appeal pro se. I also searched for another attorney to represent me to no avail. I got responses from these “professionals” such as; “almost all Fathers get screwed in

Georgia

”, “You should just accept this and realize it could be worse”. One attorney in

Cornelia

Georgia

actually told me when she found out that the Judge in my case was Ralph Hicks, said “He wouldn’t give the Father custody if the mother was an axe murderer”. Needless to say I could not afford or find another attorney to represent me, so the time limit ran out on the Notice to Appeal.

Then approximately September 2008, I filed Motion For Contempt against the Mother for numerous violations of the final order. The charges included; not using the child’s legal last name, making educational decisions unilaterally, terminating my every other Thursday visitation without a court order, denied full summer visitation in 2007, not sharing medical information concerning the minor child. This case was to be heard by

Judge

Lynn

Akeley-Alderman

. At this hearing Judge Alderman totally ignored all my complaints against the mother and dropped the contempt charges completely. She then changed my daughters name once again, giving her now two last names. Notably, this is now my daughters 4th legal name in her short life of under 5 years. Judge Alderman, before ending her final ruling, looked at me and said, “You need to learn to take the hand that was dealt to you. You had a child out of wedlock and that’s the basic facts. Then you went and married another woman”. [Final Ruling Transcript

1-10-2008

]

Note:

Judge

Hugh

Stone

also appointed

Judge

Lynn

Akeley-Alderman

as a part time Juvenile Judge.

I have learned that if you’re a male and have a child out of wedlock in the

Enotah

9th

District in

North Georgia

, you are most likely to be targeted for gender bias and to be discriminated against, maybe given standard visitation and raped financially for child support. I have actually heard stories that are more outrageous than mine and know of children who have been completely robbed of their fathers in this district.

My wife and I have filed impeachments on both Judges, Ralph Hicks and

Hugh

Stone

for bias, gender bias, prejudice, incompetence, corrupt behavior, judicial misconduct, violation of oath of office, covered up, concealment and falsified material facts, falling asleep during trial, delaying due process, etc.

Judge

Ralph

Hicks

died in August of 2007.

Judge

Hugh

Stone

has since retired and is now a substitute Judge. Another recently bias ruling by

Judge

Hugh

Stone

, see [

Onsager

vs.

Onsager

]. The

Onsager

case actually reminds me of [Sweat vs. Sweat] and how a Judge can totally contradict himself.

Opposing Attorney Michelle Vaughan, who through all the proceedings of my case and during the trial was also a part time Juvenile Judge, appointed by

Judge

Hugh

Stone

. Talk about a conflict of interest. This also raises the question of special interest by

Judge

Stone

for

Vaughan

, and a fraudulent ruling concerning my case. Recently

Vaughan

has been removed from the bench and replaced.

What is happening here in

North Georgia

and around the country is a mockery of justice and a travesty towards children. It is a violation of our constitutional rights to parent our children. I am disgraced at what most of the Family Court Policies and Judges are doing to families and our children. Family

Court

Reform

and 50/50 Custody is what’s in the best interest of children for two fit parents.
