  • Legitimacy Facade is Almost Gone

    GAL is nothing more than "the system"s vehicle to protect ITSELF & ITS STATUS QUO.
    The actual practices of the court system is to protect its moneymaking guardianship scheme _ "in the best interest of guardianship scheme". The "facade of legitimacy" states _ "in the best interest of the 'ward' ... child, elder, disabled human being". Eventually, as more people are victimized by the "guardianship scheme" ( a racketeering practice for 'official theft'), gradual EXPOSURE is occurring.

  • Trust who

    None of them ever returns calls at all no matter what.Been trying for years. "Oh", and if you beg Corbett to protect your children from a rapist,She helps,by handing them to a pedophile..Maurice Wayne Hunting the III. Why don't you ask them about that lets see..The GAL is not protecting your child nor are any of the surrounding places that are mandated.So you go to a judge, and all, she does is call child services whom you already contacted, and they open case on the one who called them,IN THE FIRST PLACE, saying their child was being abused.Now I really think to many people have their hands DIRTY in this one>>GET DOWN TO THE DIRT!!!! the TRUTH.....Trust no one doing it!! Holy Crap! "People are putting children, in the hands of a pedophile for money!!THESE PEOPLE PUT MY BABIES IN GRAVE DANGER!!
