Friend Of The Court - Wayne County aka, FOC FOC allows this biased mediator to continue to screw up families with her biased reports. Detroit Michigan
2010 MEDIATION WITH PRESCILLA WELLS (This was my second go around with her)
(I should have known better than to allow a second session with this woman)
We had a mediation session with Priscilla Wells that was as one sided as a meeting could be. This is not a matter of my complaining about the outcome this was a clear bias.
Ironically, when her report was published, Dad (me) won the "12 best interest factors" system but Mrs. Wells still makes a recommendation that is nothing more than a change in the parenting time. This is not why we were in court/mediation. WHY use the 12 best interest factors if you will then unilaterally conclude something that is different than what the results of the factors indicates? WHY? Biased.
An interesting note from the hearing:
Mrs Wells: "What grade is your son going into?
Dad: He's going into the 5th grade"
Mom: "No he isn't. He'll be in the 4th grade" (rolls her eyes at Dad)
Mrs, Wells: "Dad, you should really be more aware of your son's school environment and the things that are going on in his life."
Dad: "Kindergarten - Mrs. Harvin,......1st grade - Mrs. Pierce,......... 2nd grade - Mrs. Shumate, .......3rd grade was Mr. Kade for the first three months before he was transferred and Mr. johnson took over for the remainder of the year. Last year he was at Durfee where he had Mrs. Chudy, his fourth grade teacher. He is going into the fifth grade."
Mom: "Oh yeah"
Mrs. Wells: "Well how is he doing in school?"
This was the tone of the whole meeting. No matter how much crap that I could prove my ex wife has done, no matter what she confessed, no matter what was in the CPS reports and letter of neglect, she could do no wrong. I was treated as if I was an over imposing angry giant that was obsessed with trying to make her look like a bad mother.
It meant nothing to Mrs. Wells that Mom confessed to practicing drawing our sons' blood for fun then lied to the CPS investigator stating that the whole thing was made up. I had the CPS report.
Mrs. Wells wasn't interested in moms confession of injecting our son with needles and trying to draw his blood. This is certainly an instance of "possible child abuse". Mrs. Wells is obligated by law and profession to report all instances of "Possible or suspected" child abuse to the authorities. She did not. Instead, she issued a report that states that Dad's claims about the incident were "Unfounded".
Mrs. Wells explained to her boss (Dr. Garwald) that she stated that my claims were unfounded because mom was unsuccessful in actually drawing blood. REALLY????????? Mrs. Wells is inept in her position as she has ignored the most important aspect of the incident, injecting the child with needles, unnecessary pain and suffering to the child and unnecessarily placing the child at serious risk of infection.
What kind of professional MSW ignores this. What kind of person then attempts to misrepresent this to the court in her report by claiming that it was "Unfounded. I'll answer that for you. A biased mediator, or a person that is NOT making a recommendation based on the facts surrounding the hearing. It's wrong and subjects my son to further lunacy by his mother.
Again, Priscilla Wells is obviously a biased mediator and is possibly the worst mediator in the county or maybe the state.
I think it's clear to see that this is a cover. I was present. I heard the confession. Why on earth would I push this so hard if it were not true? Mrs Wells said that we have unresolved issues? No, Mom has some unresolved issues. As a matter of fact, most of mom's discussion was about our marriage which ended in 2001. She has never gotten over it and that is not dad's fault.
Priscilla Wells called dad angry. Who wouldn't be angry when they are obviously being lied on and ripped off? The problem that she and her bosses have is that they don't like the fact that I have not taken this lying down. And I will not. What is going on in the Wayne County FAME unit is wrong and it needs to be addressed.
You have to love the very last answer that Priscilla gave to my attorney during our trial. She was asked if it mattered if mom was actually successful in drawing blood as opposed to just attempting. "Does it matter if blood was actually drawn?" She said yes? Given this manner of thinking, Priscilla Wells might give some credit to a person that TRIED to molest a child but wasn't fully successful. It's dangerous and irresponsible. The truth is that it is a attempted linking to the justification for the lie that she told.
This woman is a danger to families everywhere and a poor social worker. She should not be allowed to practice and her department should stop covering for her. By her department, i mean that the Wayne county Friend Of the Court should stop covering for her.
