Have you ever fought PAS in court? Did the judge rule in your favor?
We haven't fought it in court, but fight it every day it seems.
I believe it's very hard to fight and prove.
I'm sorry. It's quite a struggle, isn't it?
Quoting jessiesluv:We haven't fought it in court, but fight it every day it seems. I believe it's very hard to fight and prove.
What were the instances of PAS in your situation? And were your skids questioned by the judge?
Quoting Ms.Gwen:Yes but we couldn't call it that Or say that. It was like the Mexican hat dance... We just danced around it, siting instances, calling witnesses... The judge got the picture. We maintained custody. Therapy for skids and parenting classes for BM were written into the CO, but she still has 50 legal. Sucks that the courts are so BM biased but it. Is what it is.
Quoting Ms.Gwen:Skids were questioned by the GAL. It's really to much to site in this post... She bribed them to tell the GAL they wanted to live with her and told them if they didn't say that she and her family would hate them and they would never see her again... Yea... She said that to a 4yo, 5yo, and 10yo. Go mom (not!).
Our ace in the hole was the skids therapist. She was a professional, unbiased witness to BMs fucked upedness. The GAL started out screaming 'but the kids need their mOmmy!' by trial 8 months later she was telling BM "it's about what's in the kids best interest. Not yours!!!"
It wasn't necessarily brought up, but it is one of the reasons SO wanted SS with him instead of BM.
Judges don't usually find it a credible reason to fight for custody. It's very hard to prove, and because kids under the age of 13 aren't usually allowed to have a voice in proceedings (at least in my state, unless it's an abuse situation), there's no proof of what the other parent is doing. It's considered hearsay.
What is PAS?? Sorry, never seen the abbrev. before...
