The State of CA family court is forcing Sarah, a mother of three, with a difficult choice: pay for child abduction or go to prison.
Publicized divorce cases tend to have grey areas. Not this one. Both the facts and Sarah’s choices are crystal clear.
Sarah is being threatened with imprisonment by the State of California for not paying her ex, Tom DeMelfi, tens of thousands of dollars for the service of having her children abducted by Tom.
Points that are not debated:
- Tom has stated he will do anything to have the children removed from their mother (recorded and provided to family court)
- Tom broke court orders on hundreds of occasions to prevent the children from seeing their mother. He admitted this under oath during their trial. During some stretches she was completely blocked from her kids for nearly a year.
- The State of CA (Judge Guasco) has determined that for the years that Tom illegally kept the kids, he should be paid retroactive child support.
There is absolutely nothing in Sarah’s history to indicate she should not have her children.
After the state rejected Sarah’s reasonable request of 50/50 custody, she was reduced to mere Sundays for visitations — a term any mother would recoil at.
Quickly Tom was able to obtain a frivolous court order essentially claiming Sarah was “calling names” to force her into the courtroom. Tom swiftly leveraged the scenario to completely block the children from their mother regaining his 100% custody. Tom has also returned to his practice of blocking communication with the kids by phone.
We live in a police state. People can purchase aggressive laws against average unsuspecting people and, like Hilter, if no one questions their authority, people will continue to be viciously imprisoned until enough people stand up for reform.
Despite clearly stating my First Amendment rights, I was recently court ordered to remove my divorce proceedings from the Walk for Lost Kids website because the content is deemed harmful to my children. Nothing has been removed or censored to date.
The site has also been used as evidence that Sarah should pay sanctions in her case despite the fact she is not responsible for any of its content.
Like others fighting the cause, we both continue to be fined, dragged into court and harassed for speaking out against the corruption in the family court system.
Keep the faith.
