*General Comment: I have the same issue
*Author of original report: People make mistakes but the System that portects us shouldn't!
*Consumer Comment: Sad indeed
My ex-boyfriend and I had a daughter together in July of '05. We're a mixed couple and I'm 2 years younger then him. I was the only one that worked so I paid for everything. We lived with our Mothers until our daughter was born so I moved in with his Mother and him temporarily. He progressively became physically abusive to me and I feared him. His Mother had convinced me to tell the cops that everything was fine the first time I called them. Then when he'd attack me IF she was home she'd pull him off of me and make sure I wouldn't call the cops. He'd attack me if I didn't give him what he wanted. He'd take my phone, my money and my vehicle. I knew that I had to get out of their before he succeeded at killing me one day.
When I was able to move back in with my Mother I immediately left. My ex-boyfriend and I shared our daughter by the week. She'd stay with his Mother, sister and him for a week then with my Mother and me for a week. That was fine until June when I told him I was getting married in June of '07. That's when he refused to bring my daughter back. His Mother, sister and him moved and none of them would abide by what we were originally doing all because I was getting married and they didn't want our daughter around another man. That was their words. His Mother then tried to convince me to leave my fiance and come back to them she even tried to convince my fiance to leave me. Needless to say their tactics didn't work.
Shortly after my ex-boyfriend showed up at my job and tried to kidnap me. I wouldn't leave. My fiance showed up and my ex-boyfriend flew out the door, jumped in the car and chased him through the neighborhood. Of course we had called the cops because it was dangerous and we didn't know if he had his illegal gun with him or not. We talked to the police and told them the threats and what happened and they told us to get PPO's on my ex as soon as possible. I quit my job due to being afraid for my safety and we filed PPO's on my ex.
My fiance and I got married. A few months past. We thought that maybe they'd come to their senses (his Mother, Sister, Himself and Girlfriend) and stop all this arguing and fighting with us and share my daughter with me like adults. However, I finallly get a phone call that the police has arrested him for beating up his current girlfriend-which didn't press charges- and my daughter was at the police station as well. My husband and I picked her up and took her to our home. After he was released I was afraid that if I let him pick her up that I wouldn't see her again so his Mother got him a lawyer and filed for Custody. The Custody Battle Begins in early '08!
We were assigned to Judge Arthur Lombard which yelled at my ex's lawyer for having us in his court room instead of the Friend of Court first. In my ex's filing he said nothing but lies such as my daughter didn't know my family and only knew his also he wanted child support. I didn't understand what was going on. I was scared and all I now is that Judge Lombard told me to give my daughter back to my ex! He ignored my plea, ignored my anxiety, ignored my explanation to what had happened and ignored and violated my husband and my PPO's. I was confused and distraught!
My husband and I (pregnant with our son) searched for a lawyer to help us. That's when we found out that my ex was on the sex offender registry listed as 3rd degree with multiple variables. He has to report his address quarterly for life.
Judge Lombard assigned us to go see someone to evaluate us with our daughter to make a recommendation. My ex-boyfriend told me he'd be there with our 2 1/2 year old daughter but never showed up. (Which shouldn't be a surprise.) When I received a copy of the evaluation paper, the lady put words in my mouth that I didn't say! What was more astounding is that even though everything pointed in my favor she turned around and recommended that the custody be awarded to my ex-boyfriend! How is that possible? So that's exactly what Judge Lombard did! Even dispite our finding that he's a registered sex offender on top of everything else.
My lawyer tried to repeal it but Judge Lombard wouldn't even hear it. We fought in that court room for two years. Even with the new evidence that came in such as my ex-boyfriend harrassing us and trying to fight with us at the designated drop off which he was arrested because the address he gave didn't match the address on the sex offender registry, we had to file a couple police reports. We've received evidence that he was unstable, moving from place to place, constantly changing his numbers (Which his Mother wouldn't give me-come on), he had warrants, his license revoked, upon picking up the police report it stated that there was a drug bust at his new girlfriends mothers apartment that clearly stated he was living there, also he was arrested and put in jail for a week (I never found out why and his Mom wasn't going to tell anyone), he never showed up to the parenting class that was ordered, we even had to have a drug test done by hair-which I went right away too and he waited to the last minute shaved his head and went right before we went back to court (coincidence?-No) Judge Lombard STILL gave him Physical Custody!
I feel violated and sick to my stomach! Justice has not been served! I feel that Lombard is bias and just didn't care. The Best Interest of our daughter was not concidered! How could have it been with all the former evidence and new evidence? This guy is a hibitual lier which Lombard has caught over and again, and a violent person.
We even tried to file our own motions with Friend of Court but they threw them all out and told us to go see our Judge! How, since our lawyer took everything we had and more so we went several times to try and get a free lawyer and they were to busy!
I feel as if I was being punished for being a Caucasion woman that dated an had a child with an African American guy!
