Help me take CPS to court without a lawyer.

This law firm has rescinded their commitment to my case. I am not located in Washington, where the firm is based out of. I was not able to convince their law team to take my case, in a state where some of their best lawyers can work in (Oregon). Due to my case not involving being sexually abused in the foster home. So, I am not sure how to go about the next step, but I filed a Tort Claim almost two years ago. This stated my intent to sue CPS, weather it is done on my own, or with help; I intend to make my story heard. I have so much documented proof of CPS abusing power, stripping our civil rights, and never being concerned about the child’s best interests. I have copies of my CPS case file, transcripts from court, and anything needed to get a settlement offer agreed upon, rather than going to court. My case was unfounded, and dismissed. However; my public defender made me admit to having anxiety and menopause, which the court turned into mentally unstable and took my child from me. Based off no proof of any concern involving myself and my child. I have not spoken to Sebastian in over a year. His father is committing parental alienation, after an interstate abduction. Any assistance would be so amazing, can somebody please point me in a direction? I already did all the footwork, kept extremely detailed notation, and have documented proof of indisputable issues CPS carried through with. And how they ignored my concerns, during my case, in the foster home. I was ignored, lied to, lied about, and still; nobody in my entire family will talk to me at all, because they don’t believe how CPS can mess up so badly. I have to clear my name in court to even have a normal life again. Help Please!

Petition the Government……

April 28, 2019

Dear President Donald J. Trump: 
Dear Sen. Ron Wyden : 
Dear Sen. Jeff Merkley : 
Dear Rep. Suzanne Bonamici : 

Families are being abused by State CPS and Family Courts through out the United States of America, this is a major issue that needs to be addressed, Families that have had their civil rights violated through family court proceedings and the fact that all due process and constitutional rights are violated and manipulated by family court judges, District Attorneys, and Commissioners of /social services departments as well as CPS workers, and court appointed attorneys that are not working for the clients but have helped incriminate parents. Also of extreme interest, is obtaining names/phone/location of CPS workers who are falsifying or have falsified documents in court and who have lied in a court setting. The people of New York State and the People of the United States of America demand a full investigation of all departments, and the termination of department until further the people also wish to sue for government entrapment as well as a suit brought against the case workers, family court judges, and district lawyers. The People through discovery have found:

1. The imbalance of funding is creating corruption

2. Corruption has filtered through all manner of government and related agencies

3. Judicial decisions violate the public trust

4. Laws are created and passed that give parens patriae unlimited power not provided by the Constitution

5. The pendulum has swung to create a monopoly strategy of funding extracted from dwindling Social Services that have been set up to help families in need is devastating families across America

6. Children’s lives are at stake while in the care of government funded agencies, such as rape, sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect, mental abuse, and statistics show our children are being killed while in government placements out side of the parental home/or close relatives 

7. That the states are not following guidelines placing children with relatives but are screening them out using different criteria with foster families, or falsifying documents to entrap parents and not keeping the children in the home with parents but removing the children without due process or any true purpose other then to incriminate parents/family members and to insure family is unfit

8. That pockets of tyranny are going unchecked without recourse

9. Congress local government/ civil and family courts is not responsive to The People

10. That The People have been turned away from civil courts, and from family courts higher court of appeals, only to remain battered and bruised by the tyranny of these local government funded courts as the judges, case workers/commissioners and district attorneys mock the outraged parents and children of which they so willingly strip of their civil rights and liberties 

The People are declaring a public health crisis and human rights violation as well as their Civil rights are being stripped and taken from them and their families, as a result of these above atrocities and also In addition, The People find the Parens Patriae to be more than a doctrine but a specialized position created by the government for the government that violates Article 1 Sec 9, 10: No title of nobility or honors shall be granted by the United States. The title extends to the courts, Childrens Administration and public education violating Amendment 14 depriving persons of life, liberty and property without due process. The position applies as a collective.

The People are ordering an investigation of the departments as well as Family courts through out the United States of America and most important in New York State the people of the United States ask that all family court files,case files, court tapes, and videos be put into the investigation, as well as there be a federal lockdown on all CPS and family courts so that no tampering of documents can be done by such agencies, the fact is family court documents will show the fact that they are mishandled and manipulated by these agencies to insure incriminating charges are inevitable and due process is not being carried out, civil rights are violated, all human rights are violated and the United States Constitution is not on the agenda of these agencies. And the people of the United States of America are being abused by these powers.

I have been dealing with CPS, unfortunately, since I moved to Oregon from California late 2017. Since I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2016; as well as having spinal surgery due to partial paralysis, I decided to start fresh in Oregon with my 7 year old son. We moved in with distant family. And within 2 months, for the first time in my single motherhood years, I was faced with CPS at my doorstep. They were their because of false allegations about me that were never substantiated or even investigated. My son`s father and the bi-polar wife of my cousin, Jared; whom we were staying with in Oregon briefly, made up a story about me that turned into an entire case full of lies. The case was based upon nothing except false allegations from a CPS documented, “unstable individual”, that, ” Is the cause of the child’s emotional distress”. Reports were made by a bi-polar, alcoholic, one of whom conspired against me with Sebastian’s father; to allow my son into the custody of the state, so he could then gain custody. Had he gone through the trouble to file, or communicate with me about it, the court would not be so kind to his requests. Considering his record, and absentee role as a father thus far. The case was handled completely incorrectly and illegally. I have also started a petition on this site, and thousands of others have as well. This very unstructured, abusive, and corrupt child’s welfare system, will ultimately be the downfall of our future leaders. To be torn from a comfortable, and loving life, as a child, and thrown into a whirlwind of injustice and confusion, is frightening, and heartbreaking to go through, for all involved. It destroys families, it causes harm on so many levels, and instead of helping families and children, it destroys every vulnerable piece left of them. I am one of millions suffering from the hands of the most disruptive, corrosive, and unlawful system governing our lives. Not one parent in the world, feels safe from this shadow force. The problems lie all within the entire juvenile justice system, and does not fall on one particular department. I lost my son to his father, for absolutely no reason except made up case files that condemned me; and to this day I have had no contact with my son due to parental alienation. He was shipped to North Carolina by the will of my lying case worker, Lauren Fields, Beaverton Oregon branch. There was no court order to take my son away from me, no warrant. There was no court order, or due process that determined that my son was to be sent away from me. No matter how diligent I have been with my formal complaining about the injustice, and government officials involved with my case; not one person has tried to locate my son for me, or assure me that he is alright. What his father is doing is completely illegal, he was granted this opportunity because the case slipped through the cracks. I am still listed as the custodial parent, and now I will have to pay exuberantly for legal assistance, just to put things back the way they were before this started. If the Child Protection Services had done their job, on any level, in any respect, in my case, this would never had happened. The way it was carried out was discriminatory and blatantly wrong. I had an expert witness that was not allowed to testify at my dependency hearing. It was because his testimony alone, would have destroyed the entire case with simple facts, and obvious disregard on CPS’ part, to the reality of the situation. To this day, I am waiting for my case to finish the appeal process, and my son has no idea what happened to his mommy. I was recently called by his father, before I was blocked from contacting him again, and threatened to never speak to my son again. He told me that I am in need of mental rehabilitation, and until I check into a facility for that, he plans to keep Sebastian out of my life. This situation is one of the most severely mishandled cases that could ever happen by the hands of the government. Cases like mine are causing Americans so much pain, on such a grand scale, and the death, torture, and abuse that it’s, in turn, allowing our very own kids to endure, can all be prevented. How many children have to fall victim to CPS’ hands, before change and accountability happen? Are we so easily disregarded, and considered dispensable in this era? Raising children is tough enough, having your own life taken from you, during the struggle of life, is a game changer. It is a life changing event that has no light at the end of the tunnel. It shows no promise for the future generations, and it is causing more harm than good. Please help make changes to the way CPS handles their business. Please take immunity away from them, please make sure the employed government officials that have committed crimes against innocent families, are heald responsible. Please give children in America, a chance to succeed, thrive and be loved. The one thing in this world that has the power to save us all, is love. There can never be too much love, please stop allowing love to dissipate at an alarming rate, here in our wonderful country. I will never give up hope, and I will continue to fight the system until Sebastian is home with me, where he belongs. 

Sincerely, 

Ms. Andrea Apple

*Surprise, Surprise*

I have been lucky enough to have a lawyer take my case. My son’s past psychologist is an advocate for abused children, especially that are involved with CPS. I have kept in contact with this angel. He tried to help me when Sebastian was still in the state. Nobody would listen, nobody responded to any of the documents he wrote on our behalf. He flew into Oregon from California, in his own jet. He then spent time doing a full mental evaluation on both my father and I, write full reports, and all on his own dime. He attended the dependency hearing, and since the judge wanted nothing to do with me, this doctor was never asked to testify. Because the crocked judge never even mentioned, “the child’s best interests”, or say the words, ” the child’s well being”, he did not even say his name. The hearing was about Sebastian’s best interests, and about my progress. So why would the judge completely ignor his civil duties? Why would he deny me due process? He did not look my way, or address me at all. Except when he threatened me, while yelling. I spoke without asking my public defender if I could. Other than the one time that Mr. Bucher yelled at me; he did not address me, speak to me, about me, or even asked if anyone with me wanted to testify. He denied me of my civil rights and did not acknowledge any of my progress or speak to me. This extremely unpleasant experience was completely useless, my case worker, and my son’s father’s lawyer both committed purgery. My case worker may as well have been working against me. She decieved the court, and was not asked to provide documentation of the information she was lying about. I was given the opportunity to speak, and when I gave my testimony I spoke about many things at great lengths. So much so, that the very savvy Judge Bucher decided that we should reconvene, a later date, to discuss all the things I brought up. One was a discrepancy about my services completed. My lying case worker said I did not finish my services, however; months prior, she asked my counselor if I could stay involved in services until my case was over. I explained that was the reason I did not have discharge papers for my counseling services. The next hearing was held three weeks later. This hearing did not cover anything important, it was not a time to discuss my progress, as Judge B. explains at the opening of the hearing. It literally was held to pass some more time, because the case worker committed an interstate abduction by moving my son to his father’s care. She did that without contacting me, the court, or my public defender. The Judge did not care that the case worker was in the wrong, because she, “didn’t know it was wrong”, and admitted that she will not do it again. I found out recently, both case workers that handled my case no longer work for DHS, and the supervisor assigned to my case was moved to a different branch. I feel as if it is growing closer to redemption time. The dispicable acts that were committed in my case will all be brought to the surface and dealt with. My case is in appealate court, and my lawyer is working on bringing my son home. He was moved to NC from OR. He has been alienated from me, and his father is going to be surprised to find out all this was a big lie. The last year of my life was all made up to make me look like a bad mother. Something in which I have never been, and never will be. The tides are turning and I am feeling very positive. I AM COMING FOR YOU ALL! Remember when I kept saying that this is all false? It’s about time, for you all that wronged me and my son, are held responsible for the severe pain you allowed my wonderful son to endure. The “family” I use to have, were all wrong. It is all going to be known, and my son will be returned home by the time he finishes 3rd grade. Then we can move somewhere, change our names, and disappear from the lives of the ones that turned on me. I feel like this experience has brought me closer to the reality of the horrid actions that CPS gets away with daily. I know what I’m meant to do now, I found my calling and I am greatful to have been able to figure that out trough such pain and suffering. I am going to put all I can, into advocating, and educating the masses of this destructive force of evil sweeping across the globe. Join me in my journey to expose the truth, hold those accountable, and hopefully give others hope and strength to deal with CPS in their own ways.

Wake Up!

The truth is out there, more people need to tell their stories of CPS Corruption, judicial ignorance, case worker purgery, and injustice to family unity. How are we suppose to protect our kids from THIS too? I want to help advocate for families struggling with CPS (Can’t Protect Shite) to expose the truth about the corrupt system based on “children’s best interests. This is a sad reality that plagues the entire world. How easy you can have your life ripped from your arms, your heart ripped from your chest; and your life flashes before your eyes. All it takes is a little bull -honky, sociopathic tendencies, and a little nudge from the dark side to destroy someone else’s family. Once they are in, you don’t get away without a fight. You literally have to fight for your children or they will walk all over you wihout thinking twice. False allegations are as good as facts to most CPS case workers, less “work” and more money. The rights of the custodial loving parent seems to mean less than securing our children’s futures, and setting them up for success; to take our places at the helm. Something so cold and scary is at each families back door, Crouching in the darkest shadows. False allegations, non substantiated lies, backed by uneducated, mentally unstable, and heartless people. I lost my son illegally, and I’m doing all I can to get the word and the truth out to the world. I will stop at nothing till my son is home with me. I am justified in my writing, because I’m telling the entire truth. I am going to expose the truth, give the facts, and hopefully educate people about the severity of this epidemic. I am supported by an expert child psychologist who is urging me to go public with my story. This is the beginning of my process to show the public the uneasy corrupt system we are fooled into trusting. Don’t stop fighting, you know what needs to be done, so do something, anything! Until the masses come forth with their stories, this destructive force silently follows each and every parent, it is not picky. You may be in this mess for a good reason, but their is never a good reason to separate a child from a safe, loving parent; especially after court services are completed. In my situation, my entire case is a farce, fueled by a manic, sociopathic heartless, empty vessel, I once knew. Join me in my journey to expose CPS Corruption, and hold all responsible. I lost everything just months after I moved to Oregon to start anew. Within 1.5 months, for the first time in my life, I had 3 calls into the hotline with false allegations that brought hell to my doorstep. I trusted in my family, and was literally disowned by them, back turned on me in my lowest, most emotionally damaging experience of my life, and nobody bats an eye. “CPS doesn’t mess up that bad!” That is the disillusioned view of anyone that refuses to educate themselves. Family=Unconditional love. I learned the hard way, that statement means jack. Do yourself a solid, keep your grudge, and passive aggression out of the lives of other parents, for the child’s sake. If there is nothing to substantiate a case, no abuse, no cause for alarm, all you have left are empty lies. But in this society, feeding the pig faces, and summoning the LOST monster are priorities over our children. How upset my grandma would be if she were still here. Don’t give up parents!

A new start

Since Sebastian was very young, he was a defiant child. Raising him on my own, and without financial help from his father was very difficult, so we moved a lot. Most of the time we spent was together, doing art, playing outside, doing homework, reading, or playing with Legos. We were a team, best friends, and support for each other. He is an old soul and is wise for his age. While he attended preschool, he was asked to leave 6 separate preschools. The teachers didn’t have the knowledge or capacity to assist when he had difficult behavior. I had to quit working due to the calls mid-day from his school to come pick him up; at least three times weekly. I was a supervisor at a cleaning company. My job from that point on was to find a program that would help my very bright, creative 4 year old little boy. His father and my family did not have a clue what was going on, due to their lack of communication. I was doing this alone, as it had always been before. I went to the head of the school board in Sonoma County and she initiated an IEP. Just prior to this, he was asked to leave one last school, Kiwi Preschool. This is where Dr. Kliman came into our lives. I sought out this school because he was there as a part his Reflective Network Therapy with children. As a child psychologist and compassionate, professional, and experienced MD, and advocate, he became a friend. Sebastian was able to open up with Dr. Kliman’s help, and Sebastian began coming into touch with his feelings, and how to express them safely and with proper actions. Unfortunately, Sebastian was asked to leave this school also, over a misunderstanding. Although he was starting to thrive; I had to resort to a new direction. When Mike entered our lives things got easier financially and he loved us both the same. When Sebastian finally let Mike in, they became best buds. He was the first father figure he had and we continued to stay in a loving relationship for 3 years. Early 2016 I began to loose my ability to use my legs. Then, one morning I was completely paralyzed from the waist down. My folks tried to bring a wheelchair up to my second story apartment. But we ended up having to call for an ambulance to drive me to the local hospital for an MRI. The results were unknown, but urgent. I was then rushed to UCSF ICU, neurology department for emergency Spinal Decompression surgery. The next day, when the specialist was in, he looked at my x-rays and told me that I have another surgery to undergo. This one was going to take 8 hours, and they were going to replace a vertebra with a titanium vertebra and also remove a tumor wrapping around my spinal cord. I was, at that time, diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer with Metastasized to the bone and spine. I was in shock, but not frightened. I was in the best place possible for this to have happened, UCSF has a very successful neurology team, and I felt the spirit of my grandma. After a successful surgery, I spent 2 full weeks in the ICU at UCSF. I was then sent back home, to Santa Rosa California, Memorial Hospital Rehab Facility to gain the ability to walk again. This took 3 weeks, Sebastian had to live with my folks. During that time, Sebastian couldn’t see me or talk to me; until I was moved back to Santa Rosa rehab facility. He was unsure if I was going to walk again, or going to die. Knowing I have a disease that can literally take my life, he had a hard time adjusting when he came back home to me. It was heartbreaking to see how concerned he was so for my wellbeing. He was always asking, “mom, are you ok?” Sometimes for no reason, at least 10 times a day. We were able to get back to a regular life and as time passed, Mike and I began to struggle with our relationship. Partly due to my medically induced menopause, and also because we started using methamphetamine on occasion. I soon found out he was using it more and more and I realized, quickly, that I had to get us away from the man I so loved; in order to keep my son safe. I made the decision to move us to live with my cousin and his family in Oregon.
While living with the Hundt family, we all got along and we never argued. Jennifer had I confided in each other and I told her I was a recovering addict, she confirmed that I was in a safe place to get clean. About two months later I was moving into our new place, it was the Hundt`s annual Halloween party. I hung out with the kids, sober, and the hosts maintained a child friendly party environment by keeping the drugs and alcohol outside on the back porch. And as I had never had a bad encounter with them before, an argument started over a kitten that evening after the guests went home. I went to ask Sebastian if he wanted to stay the night with the other children; still in their costumes, and kissed him goodbye. Since the argument started Jennifer was completely drunk and threatened to call the police on me, she called 911 after I left. When they came for a report she lied to them and said I grabbed my son, and told them I was on drugs. A couple days later CPS contacted me and I admitted to being a recovering addict. They thought that was enough evidence to start a case on me, even though there was no found proof of the allegations and I had no drugs or alcohol in my system. It wasn’t until 4 months later that I gave a dirty UA. That evening, while making dinner, my case worker came and took my son from me. He placed him in the care of my cousin, (foster family) my false accusers. My cousins wife, Jennifer is a bipolar, manic, alcoholic.; with a personal vendetta against me, and threatened to kill me in front of my son, and CPS.
As time went on, things for me only got worst. Jennifer was in contact with CPS reporting lies that they wrote down as facts. She was in contact with Sebastian’s father and my family also, ultimately turning my entire family against me. She could not keep her composure around my son or cps workers when speaking about me. DHS documented all of her threats and foul language about me. When she threatened to kill me, in front of Stephanie Phillips, CPS visitations worker, she was concerned and made sure her concerns were heard. There are many pages of documented concerns about the foster family, stating they believe that they are the reason for my son’s emotional distress. Nothing was ever done to reunite my son and I.
