Parents Rights

I have written my true story and included supporting documentation to testify how I lost some of my children to the corrupt State of Connecticut.

I did nothing wrong and there were NO investigations or custody studies ever done to show any negligence on my part with my sons Charles and Steven or my daughter Rebecca. Even when the court ordered a custody study it was the State of Connecticut that refused to do the custody study!

However, the one custody study that was done by the Connecticut Department of Child and Youth Services, an agency in the same State, showed that I was a fit father. I in effect received sole custody of my daughter Tiffany from the State of Connecticut. In fact the social worker that did the custody study wrote a letter for me to give to the judge who ordered the custody study for Charles and Rebecca. This is the custody study that the State of Connecticut refused to do and which has led to this testimony!

Through their actions the State of Connecticut made it as hard as possible for me to provide for Tiffany, my step-children and wife during the early years. And still after all these years the State of Connecticut still continues to make my life difficult.

The State of Connecticut cannot deny the blatant corruption within the family court system. The system has been under federal investigation since the 1980's over and over again! This information is also included this document!

I have decided to put this on a website and not publish it as a book because I know that there are millions of parents that have been separated from their children for no good reason and maybe by sharing our experiences we can all help each other.

Also of note:

July 1, 2016 Washington, D.C. Legislation in the U.S. Senate to propose a Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has officially received a bill number: Senate Joint Resolution 36. (

I believe that We, the People, can help Congress help us if we ban together and push Congress to strengthen this proposal of Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to eliminate the corruption within the States family court systems.

“Michigan code 380.10 was the first known parental rights statute in the country. Adopted in 1996” and the list is growing of States that are starting to “preserve a parent’s “fundamental right and duty to make decisions concerning [the] care, custody, and control” of their children.”

This is my true story with all court documentation. My case took place in Connecticut and is still going on more than 30 years later.

The War On Parenting In America Waged By the States.

The topic of Parental Rights is very important to me. I have finally seen signs that this has become an important topic for many. As I come upon updates involving parental rights I will update this page with the information. Check back from time to time to see how we as a nation are doing to uphold the rights of parents and how far we have come to stop the State’s corruption involving this issue.

Since the time I've sent this document,(The War On Parenting In America Waged By the States) out to more than 70 individuals in the government and 15 members of the media, I found these most incriminating news Articles by Anne Stevenson and other journalist about how broken and corrupt Connecticut parents rights and child welfare has become. (Who I sent it to and responses so far: List of contacts, and only 2 people responded; Amanda Zavagnin - emailKate McAvoy - email 1Kate McAvoy - email 2)
