John Geer is a desperate man.

Reeling from grief after his 3-year-old granddaughter Brook Stagles died last month from injuries sustained in a beating that allegedly came at the hands of her father’s girlfriend, Geer has found his mission: raising awareness of child abuse and the pressures faced by the often undermanned, overburdened agencies responsible for protecting the most vulnerable.

So i have posted some US case laws, here is one from Illinois. I will be concentrating on them for a few days (prepping for trial)
Illinois State Supreme Court case (NOT a federal)
Bates v Bates, 819 N.E.2d 714 (2004) ILLINOIS
– Dr. Richard Gardner referenced several books on PAS and an index of 56 articles on PAS.
– He described PAS as a disorder arising primarily, if not exclusively, in the context of child custody disputes
– it results from the combination of one parent’s programming or brainwashing a child into a campaign of denigration against the other parent, and the undue in documentation of the child by the programming parent with his or her own inflated “contributions”
– Dr. Robert B. Shapiro, a clinical psychologist, licensed in Illinois and a member of the Board of Evaluate families in custody disputes, also testified that PAS was generally accepted by the relevant psychologically community, observing that “I don’t know anybody who doesn’t accept it.”
– the court found “that the principle of Parental Alienation Syndrome is sufficiently established to have gained general acceptance in the particular filed.”
– Dr. Gardner defined PAS as a psychiatric disorder arising in the context of a child custody dispute
– In this disorder, one parent “programs” or “brainwashes” a child into a campaign of denigration against the other parent, even though that other parent is generally good and loving
– The denigrating custodial parent inflates his or her own contributions, and PAS arises as a result of a combination of both the undue denigration and the inflated heightening of the custodial parent’s contribution
– the trial court found that Edward had proved, by clear and convincing evidence, that S.B.’s present environment seriously endangered her physical, mental, moral and environmental health, and that it was in S.B.’s best interest that Edward be awarded sole custody immediately
– the court the words “parental alienation syndrome,” basing its findings instead on the standard set out in Section 602(a)(8) of the Act (750 ILCS 5/602(a)(8)), namely:
– “the willingness and ability of each parent to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing relationship between the parents and child.”
– the trial court recited that it would consider the report (from the GAL) “for what its worth” along with many other factors, abd, therefore, any error in considering the report was not prejudicial — 342 Ill.App. 3d at 214-15
– the private interest involved here is the right of parents to the companionship, care, custody, and management of ther children
– in Lassiter v Department if Social Services, 452 US 18, 27, 68L.Ed.2d 640, 649-50, 101 S.Ct. 2153, 2159-60 (1981), the Supreme Court held that right to be an important interest, warranting deference and protection, absent a powerful countervailing interest
– we have also recently held that one of the fundamental rights protected under the Fourteenth Amendment is the right of parents to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of their children without unwarranted state intrusion — Wickham v Byrne, 199 Ill. 2d 309, 316 (2002)
in In re Andrea F., 208 Ill.2d 148, 165 (2003), a case involving termination of parental rights, this court held that parents have a fundamental due process right to the care, custody, and contril of their children
– the representative, like any other witness, is not immune from error in observation and from inadvertent bias.
– The proper weight to be given the report of a child;s representative may be influenced by nay factors, including his training and experience, the contacts between the representative, the parties, and the child, and the existence of any bias or tendency to favor one gender of parent over the other
– cross-examination is likely to affect the trial court’s assessment of the worth of the representatives recommendations in many cases
– Section 506(a)(3) is unconstitutional
– representative’s report was received in evidence, read, and relied on by the trial court, and, thus Norma’s right to procedural due process was denied
– Section 610 of the Act allows modification of a prior custody judgement, absent consent, only if the court finds, by clear and convincing evidence, upon facts that have arisen since or were unknown at the time of prior judgement, that modification is necessary to serve the best interest of the child — 750 ILCS 5-610
– the trial court found that S.B.’s present environment seriously endangered her physical, mental, moral or emotional health and that a substantial change in circumstances had been proved by clear and convincing evidence
– the court expressly considered the standards for determining best interests set out in Section 602 of the Act, including “(8) the willingness and ability of each parent to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing relationship between the other parent and the child.” — 750 ILCS 5/602(8)

Michael was one of more than 15,000 children adopted internationally in 1998. But by 2015, that number had dwindled to 5,647.

And now, international adoption agencies worry that a sweeping set of proposed State Department regulations could erode that number further.

Child foster care issues are well-known in Georgia. Now Georgia’s foster-care problems are known nationwide.

The Associated Press published an article Nov. 13 reporting five states account for almost two-thirds of the national increase of children in foster care. Leading those five is Georgia, which according to the report went from 7,600 foster-care children during September 2013 to 13,266 in October of this year.

Mom loses custody for alienating dad
In a stunning and unusual family law decision, a Toronto judge has stripped a mother of custody of her three children after the woman spent more than a decade trying to alienate them from their father.

By TRACEY TYLERLEGAL AFFAIRS REPORTER
Sat., Jan. 24, 2009
In a stunning and unusual family law decision, a Toronto judge has stripped a mother of custody of her three children after the woman spent more than a decade trying to alienate them from their father.

The mother’s “consistent and overwhelming” campaign to brainwash the children into thinking their father was a bad person was nothing short of emotional abuse, Justice Faye McWatt of the Superior Court of Justice wrote in her decision.

The three girls, ages 9 to 14, were brought to a downtown courthouse last Friday and turned over to their father, a vascular surgeon identified only as A.L.

Their mother, a chiropodist identified as K.D., was ordered to stay away from the building during the transfer and to have her daughters’ clothing and possessions sent to their father’s house.

McWatt stipulated that K.D. is to have no access to the children except in conjunction with counselling, including a special intensive therapy program for children affected by “parental alienation syndrome.” The mother must bear the costs.

Harold Niman, the father’s lawyer, said the decision serves as a wake-up call to parents who, “for bitterness, anger or whatever reason,” decide to use their children to punish their former partners.

“Maybe if they realize the courts will actually step in and do something and there is a risk of not only losing custody, but having no contact with their children, they’ll think twice about it,” Niman said in an interview.

McWatt’s judgment was released Jan. 16 and published on legal databases this week. By yesterday, it was a hot topic within the family law bar.

The judge said awarding A.L. sole custody was the children’s only hope for having a relationship with their father, given their mother’s long-running transgressions.

These include ignoring court orders, shutting the door in A.L.’s face when he came to collect the children and refusing to answer the phone when he called to say goodnight. (He was granted telephone access to say good night on Monday, Wednesday and Friday). At times, she also arranged for police to show up when her daughters had overnight visits with their father.

Eventually, K.D. cut off contact altogether, refusing to allow A.L. to see or speak with his daughters. He was reduced to shouting goodnight to them through the door of their home, often not knowing whether they were there.

“It is remarkable that A.L. has not given in to the respondent’s persistence in keeping his children from him over the last fourteen years and simply gone on with his life without the children as, no doubt many other parents in the same situation would have and, indeed, have done,” McWatt said.

The mother squandered several chances to change her behaviour and is unable to accept it is in her children’s best interests to have a relationship with their father, the judge said.

Nicholas Bala, a Queen’s University law professor who specializes in family law, said “badmouthing” or negative attitudes by one parent toward another is quite common among separated couples. But in recent years, the justice system has begun to understand the harmful effects of the worst form of this behaviour.

In most cases, the problem is resolved through counselling, where parents are encouraged to accept they’ll both always be in their children’s lives, said Bala. “I tell them, `… if you’re the survivor, you’ll be going to the other’s funeral, not because you love that person, but to support your children.’

“Having said that, there are some people – and I think some of them are suffering from personality disorders – who will not respond to therapy and will not respond to directions from judges.”

Transferring custody is a last resort, because “it can be quite dramatic and traumatic” – yet sometimes better than the alternative, said Bala.

“We often talk about the best interests of the child, but often it’s the least detrimental alternative, really.”

Bala said courts are unlikely to take such a drastic step without hearing expert testimony about what’s happening in the family. A child may be avoiding a parent for legitimate reasons such as physical or emotional abuse.

McWatt heard testimony from Barbara Fidler, a Toronto mediator and clinical psychologist who predicted eight years ago the three girls were at risk of becoming alienated from their father.

The Office of the Children’s Lawyer argued the family dynamics could not continue.

Fidler said research points to long-term damage in people alienated from a parent in childhood.

Children are more susceptible at about age 10 or 11, after their brains have developed to the point where they can hold positive and negative information about a parent.

If what one parent is saying about the other doesn’t accord with their own perceptions, they can become confused.

In some cases, the only way out of the emotional conflict is to take one parent’s side. The child can even begin inventing his or her own reasons for hating the other parent, the court was told.

Early intervention is best, Niman said.”Really, parental alienation is a process. If you can nip it in the bud, that’s the best advice I can give to clients.

“Because the longer it goes on, the more difficult it can be to undo.”

Always ask why because we all have to move forward and break the cycle of abuse.

Always Ask Why
MARY PRAYNE·THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2016
When we see young people from broken homes, go through drug abuse, alcohol abuse, committing crimes, etc. etc. .. We often hear that they suffered because a parent was absent… It has long been the, “go to response” , that a parent walked away and the other poor parent was left struggling to raise the child / children on their own..doing the best they can! …. But that is Not , always the case! We are seeing more and more that many of these absent parents were not absent of their own accord! They were erased through Alienation with the help of the Alienating Parents’ Enablers! These can include family members, clueless friends, lawyers, Judges and Legislators! Of course, these people, especially the Alienators themselves, will push all blame off on the absent parent, keeping in true Narcissistic fashion. Do a little checking before you start blaming absent parents… Find out why they are absent.. Find out why they are not at the school for functions. Find out why they aren’t at sports events. Don’t listen to only one side! When you do that and sympathize, you become a part of the problem.. Find out what the children were told was the reason they were absent. We have an awful lot of Adult Children of Alienation coming forward and speaking out against the parent who raised them and supposedly sacrificed all for them , because the other parent couldn’t be bothered! They are learning the truth and if the trauma of what they went through as children wasn’t bad enough..they are learning they unwittingly had a part in it, by believing the lies and turning their backs on the Target Parents who love them more than life itself. There has got to be a lot of guilt there! Alienation is Abuse..plain and simple! Call it Gaslighting..Brainwashing..Manipulation and you would be correct on all counts! Whatever you call it..it is Abuse!

we want the whole country to see how much we love our children and how determine we are to fight for them. Let us know…will we see you in Springfield Fri, June 17th ??
