Our View: Illinois must fix Department of Children and Family Services

It’s sad to think it took newspaper and television reports to get Illinois officials to pay attention to problems at the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Requirement to consider gay couples for adoption forces Illinois Catholic Charities affiliates to close

Requirement to consider gay couples for adoption forces Illinois Catholic Charities affiliates to close

After the Illinois state legislature passed a requirement that says adoption and foster-care agencies — to be eligible for state money — must consider same-sex couples as potential foster-care or adoptive parents, the Roman Catholic bishops in Illinois decided to shut down most of the Catholic Charities affiliates in the state. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened: Massachusetts and Washington D.C. both passed similar requirements — and many Catholic Charities affiliates closed down in those states, as well. The New York Times reports:

Quinn calls for changes in juvenile prison system

Gov. Pat Quinn wants to end a rocky experiment with the state’s juvenile prison system.

On the heels of an audit showing the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice has been mismanaged since it was split off from the state’s adult prison system in 2006, Quinn is proposing to fold the agency into the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Note: LOL! Pat Quinn thinks that the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is gonna do better.

Deet! Dee Dee!!!

The Appearance that Pam L. office has lots of shadows and they run deep into the pockets of Title IV monies and Massive GREED from the state actors.

The Herald-Review (Decatur IL, USA)
21 February 1999
Former State Resident Given Formal Apology by Illinois Division of Child Support Enforcement.

by Amanda Wilson

The Illinois State Supreme Court has ordered Guy Hastings, Director of Child Support Enforcement, to send a formal letter of apology to a former Illinois state resident who was forced to pay $9000 more in support than ordered. Paul Laird, now a resident of Washington state and a former resident of Strasburg, IL, has said he will make a written statement in a few days. The Court also ordered DCSE to pay him almost $150,000 in punitive damages.

The pertinent facts are not in dispute. Mr. Laird was ordered to pay $400/mo in child support in 1985. Kankakee County records indicate Mr. Laird had voluntarily overpaid his account by May, 1991. That is when his troubles started.

Mr. Laird was forced to take a medical leave of absence due to Multiple Sclerosis. He presented Illinois DCSE doctor statements and 7 requests for temporary reduction from November 1991 through May, 1993. He was never answered by Illinois DCSE and they now admit that he did send the request and that those requests were ignored. They also admit Mr. Laird never missed a payment.

A suit was filed by DCSE in November, 1993 to modify the child support award. Mr. Laird was never notified of this hearing. The department received a default judgment increasing the support amount to $800. DCSE admits Mr. Laird was never notified of the new amount.

The amount was reduced in 1996 back to the original $400 figure. DCSE CONTINUED to count the extra $400 from November 1993 to October, 1996 as child support arrears. They garnished his wages, filed liens against him, reported him to CREDIT BUREAUS and continue collection thought taking his IRS refunds. Mr. Laird filed suit in 1996 against DCSE and specific employees within that agency. The Appellate Court awarded him almost $60,000 in January, 1998. That judgment has been paid.

The State’s Attorney of Champaign County filed charges of malfesciance of office against three DCSE employees – Karen Breaker, Linda Richardson, and Barbara McCloud. Breaker and Richardson were also tried on perjury, falsifiction of records, and theft. McCloud was found not guilty in November, 1998. Breaker plead guilty to the charge of perjury and falsification in a plea bargain. Ms. Richardson was found guilty on all counts and sentenced to 18 months in prison. All three lost their jobs with
Illinois DCSE.

This is only the first of 8 cases against the Champaign office. In the most recent case a custodial mother received child support payments 9 months after the father made payments through the court. The father in this case was prosecuted for non-payment and was found not guilty when he presented receipts and cancelled checks. A check by the Auditor’s office revealed a practice by the Champaign office of putting support checks in a hidden fund to draw interest for the state. That case has been merged with 7 others in a class action lawsuit. It is scheduled to be heard in April, 2000.

Governor Ryan and his cabinet were unavailable for comment. This reporter has verified that the governor urged DCSE to settle this case out-of-court and that Mr. Hastings refused. DCSE director Hastings also had no comment.

Because the state was found to have acted fraudulently in his case, the Supreme Court had to rule on punitive damages.

The state’s attorney’s office never did take up Konicki’s case—she said Okrei told her “Glasgow has been advised not to get involved, since he, himself, had been sent the pictures,” the affidavit said.

Okrei told Konicki Glasgow confirmed he “had received the pictures, saying he had deleted them and not distributed them,” according to the affidavit.

Konicki believes Will County Judge Gerald Kinney received her “revenge porn” pictures as well, according to her affidavit. Konicki tried to get both Judge Kinney and State’s Attorney Glasgow to submit to depositions about the pictures.

 

LOOK AT THE FILING ON DOCKET LETS SEE IF THE STATE DOES ANYTHING HAS TO GO TO THE ILSC OR THE IGTO INSPECT INTRINSIC CRIMINAL AND CIVIL CONSPIRACY BUT MOST OF ALL FRAUD AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS WE PAID THEM OR HARD EARNED MONIES JUDGES GET PAID IN WILL COUNTY OVER $170,000.00 AND MR.

Shared Parenting Bill would affect Illinois custodial decisions

Posted: Mar 19, 2014 4:19 PM CDT

SPRINGFIELD (WREX) -An Illinois House committee is considering a bill that would reduce the discretion judges use when deciding how much time kids can spend with non-custodial adults.House Bill 5425, or the Shared Parenting Bill, would allow parents who do not have custody to have their children an average of 35 percent of the week.

A Loves Park resident helped write the legislation.

“If even bonding is not proactively pursued by family courts, the resulting dynamic may very well negatively impact future relationships as an adult,” Richard Thomas, the bill’s co-author, said.

The House Judiciary Committee is currently reviewing the measure.
