Hello, this is to show to those who look at it, the LAW of DEADBEAT DADS is a joke. there seriously needs to be a reform of this countries Child support and custody laws to keep mothers from getting away with murder, Well at least PERJURY.
Hello world I was married to Angela Marie THOMAS who is currently remarried. from 2000 ish to 2005, when I caught this malicious girl cheating on me, YES red handed I have her emails and she stank like dirty sex. Not from me, cause I wasn't gettn any. We had 3 beautiful children together, we were working things out, when my mother caught her with a man from WALMART, Mr. Ryan Whiting. A distant relative. s**t. During her cheating she convinced me and we made an agreement that since we were together and we had 3 children, that I was to get a vasectomy. I did.
During healing I found out about what was happening. I confronted Angela about this, She promptly took my children and left. We had a written agreement of 50% custody, and she demanded 500$ a month. Which seems highly unfair. She is a hair stylist and was working a 40 hour a week making 2300 a month. and which she demanded that the only time I was to have with the children was when she was work. Her job right smack in the middle of the day. I was unemployed because of the emotional hardship from her malicious intent. I still loved her... at the time.
I was informed that there was going to be a good amount of contract work in UT with an IT position to last 2 months. Making roughly 30 an hour. I was ecstatic. I asked if they would come with me, Angela declined. I asked if could take one of my children with me. She again declined. I told her I would be back, I packed up my Items and put them in storage, minus my clothes on my back. I then traveled to Ogden UT, where I had a cousin looking to get his own place. I roomed with him for 3 months, while only making 400$ during that time and working less than a week as the work had fallen through, I was stranded. Angela proceeded to file divorce, She falsified her wages to the court, citing she only made 1000 a month and that I was making 2300-2500 a month.
When the divorce decree was filed, I received notice, several times AFTER the 10 day response period and a default was ordered against me. I met a beautiful girl in UT who Used her last paycheck and helped me back to Arizona. As soon as I arrived in AZ I filed with the courts a motion to set aside default as Angela had not serviced me appropriately. This was Denied in red ink with no reason, I motioned the court that I get a clarification on the denial, only receiving another DENIED!
3 Days after arriving back in Arizona, I received notice that Angela was leaving to Twin Falls Idaho in 9 days 51 days short of the 60 Day certified notice, required by A.R.S 25.480. I motioned the court for an emergency order of protection to deny this move. This was denied as they were unable to take jurisdiction over the matter, even though I had evidence that she was leaving.
Angela falsified a document stating I had given her permission, She committed perjury. I did not find out about this document until a year and a half later when she sought incarceration, I had been having financial difficulties during the year and a half that she had relocated, and when informing my son that I was moving to Twin Falls Idaho to be closer as the courts were not listening to my plea, I was served with a summons from AZ days before moving. I chose to stay in AZ so that in good faith I could present evidence to the courts that she had lied, and was deceiving the courts and the legal process. They attorney that Angela hired sent me a letter. Give up the children for adoption, pay 15,000$, or he would aggressively seek incarceration. 3 days after receiving the notice I lost my job. and within 30 days I obtained a job, with higher pay. and Submitted to the courts my wage assignment. In court, after paying HALF OF MY WAGES to the CLEARING HOUSE. The Lawyer Mr. Jonathan Collins stated to the judge that the amount that was being garnished was not enough to pay the Interest on what was owed, even though it was half my wages. A blatant lie to the judge just to incarcerate because I would not meet Angela's Demands of giving up the Children for adoption. The judge ordered incarceration with a purge amount set at 5000$. I explained to my wife in 3 words , "incarceration 5000$ indefinitely" before the officer hauled me away from the courtroom to be processed and thrown in tent city. With the ELIGIBILITY for work release.
While being processed and laughing at the system all the way through. I ended up in tent city on my birthday at 1:30am I was able to meet the white segregation, "the WOODS" They sang me HAPPY BIRTHDAY! and made an absolutely disgusting pie of stacked sugary treats.
And like others have stated, Tent City is a joke. THE FIRST DAY, I had access to a slue of illegal information, contraband and drugs, though I do not partake, nor due I narc, it was nice to learn how SMACK ICE CRACK GLASS whatever you want to call it, is made. So many people with tattooed tears on their faces. I have not killed anyone nor have I committed a crime, just financially unable to afford the court ordered 1175 a month child support order. I was broke, still broke and barley making it by. Yet she had the huge amount set against me because of her lies and after a written agreement was reached between her and I was bypassed by the Judge Gentry-Lewis' decision.
I spent an entire day in tent city at 116 degrees top corner bunk. This is prudent information. as the corner bunk is the closest to the metal frame.
During the time in jail I tried numerous phone numbers that I had in my head... 4 of them. and I was unable to make a collect outbound call, because everyone is switching to cell phones. I actively perused a tank order to sign up for a request for Work release, as I needed to be to work to pay this off. I lost my job because of my incarceration. YES JUDGE GENTRY-LEWIS gave me the eligibility for work release. Tent city did not have Tank orders and it would be 2-3 weeks before they were to be available. and another 6-8 weeks until I would be released for a week to look for work. INSANE!!! I WAS MAKING PAYMENTS AND THE COURT CAUSED ME TO LOSE MY JOB! the Judge could have easily ORDERED WORK RELEASE, and I would have been out the next morning and at work continuing to pay child support.
My current wife was diligent in obtaining funds to satisfy the purge amount. By means of using our last few $$ in our account and borrowed 4400$ from family and friends. They were willing to do this because of Angela's malicious attempt to keep me from my children. I was released and a review hearing set for 1 month later. At the review hearing, which I attended telephonically, Mr. Collins objecting my request, and continued seeking further incarceration as I only spent 40+ hours in the system. Tastelessly misrepresenting to the courts that if "I" was able to pay 5000$ in such a short time that I MUST have more funds at my disposal to pay the rest of the amount.
The judge asked What am I doing to repay the amount. I explained that I had lost my job due to incarceration and that a friend of the Family was a legal aid and I was seeking his advice the fallowing Monday. The judge immediately stated, if you can afford a retention fee then A 2ND PURGE amount of 5000$ was set, due in 1 month and a review hearing in 2 months. Mr. Collins demanded a copy of my financial information and the last 3 years of taxes. I objected and stated that the same must be applied to ANGELA, the Judge ordered that we exchange financial information by the deadline the Purge amount was due. The Lawyer also requested that further telephonic appearance be denied. The Judge granted it! ABSURD! the judge made an ASSUMPTION on my financial position though I had proof otherwise but was dismissed by Mr. Collins stating that I will have to have my Family and Friends pay for it again. This disgusting display of Judicial BIAS, is appalling.
I spoke with the friend of the family the fallowing Monday. He was unable to assist as he was not licensed in AZ. Unrepresented and broke I have failed to pay the Purge amount. Note, the only way to pay the Purge is cash at the clerks office. I am in Twin falls and broke, waiting for my 1st paycheck at my new job. To make a 1100 mile trek to Arizona to pay a 5000$ amount that I don't have is also insane. I have filed many motions and objections with the court to defend my financial information and position. 2 weeks before the deadline I received a Statement from Angela's work citing, she made 2100 in July and 2300 for August and 1100 the first 7 days of Sept, 2 months and a week of financial information. Speaking with Mr. Collins, I informed him this did not comply to what the Judge had ordered. He said he would ask his client for this information. It is now a day after the deadline. and I have yet to see this financial information and I am a few min from dropping this complaint to the courts about the delay on financial information in the mail. Also, I have called many times to arrange visitation with my children, only response from Angela is, "YOUR GOING TO JAIL, and you have to give me 60 days notice to see the children." she has also called the local police, to falsely file Harassment. She is Maliciously seeking to eliminate my right as a father to his children. This is disgusting, I have no way to combat this type of attack. the judge is so Bias as to demand that I be incarcerated for being financially unable to pay a court order that was attained by a lying malicious evil woman, that committed perjury and now seeks to hold me to her lies.
Thank you for calling me a DEADBEATDAD!
