CAS Stories Wanted
October 26, 2007 permalink
An aggrieved father, Brian Latreille, is soliciting stories of abuse by CAS to help him in assembling information for corrective action. We ask all persons responding to also send a copy of their story to Dufferin VOCA by email to [ rtmq at fixcas.com ]. Please indicate in your email whether you wish to keep your story confidential or have it publicized.
Family Law needs to be re-written for the best interest of the children.
Were you a child who has been involved with the CAS as a result of a supervision order?
If you feel that you are not close to one or both of your parents and/or siblings as a result, I want to hear from you.
If you are a parent that has had nothing but problems with your children as a result of the CAS involvement, I want to hear from you.
If you are a father to children that you have been alienated from as a result of the CAS, I want to hear from you.
If you had to deal with the CAS at all, and feel that they lied to make their case against you, I want to hear from you.
If you are a parent who has tried to prove to CAS that you were wrongfully accused, and got no response or lost in court as a result of negligence on the part of the CAS, I want to hear from you.
If you are a parent who has had nothing but headaches from dealing with the CAS at all, and feel that they misused their power against you, I want to hear from you.
IF YOU ARE A WOMAN WHO LIED TO GAIN CUSTODY OF YOUR CHILDREN, AND USED A SHELTER OR COMMUNITY CENTER TO BEGIN YOUR FALSE CLAIMS AND HAVE, GONE THROUGH THE SYSTEM PUT INTO PLACE TO PROTECT ACTUAL ABUSED WOMAN, AND THE FATHERS LOST OUT AS A RESULT OF YOUR LIES, I DEFINITELY WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.
(We will not disclose any information to the authorities regarding any lies you have made, if you make the request in your letter.) We need to act on the solution to fix the glitch in our family laws to better protect the children and parents in the future so we can all stay involved in our children's lives. I believe that all children need both parents in their lives.
On a plain piece of lined paper, tell us your full name, address at the time, telephone number to reach you and the best time to contact you regarding any questions we may have. Give a description of what happened, and how it all unfolded. Please include if you feel the CAS has wronged you, and how you feel it has changed your lives with family members on a long-term basis. Include; if you feel, that if the CAS were not involved, how do you think things would have worked out?
ALL INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL UNLESS WE USE YOUR INFORMATION IN COURT.
* Please note that names, dates and addresses are very important. As we will be investigating further into the ethics used by CAS and systems put into place to better protect people that really need it.
We are looking to take the CAS to court in an effort to providing a better system to protect children, without having long term effects to the family members involved. We will be trying to make law that everyone accused has a right to defend oneself properly with Legal Aid assistance if needed. We want a better way of dealing with false allegations/accusations made to gain custody of the children involved. Both parents need to have their say, and a chance to defend their names, LONG TERM.
If a lawsuit transpires from the evidence we provide from your information received to us, we will contact you to make you aware so you can act on a sit should you feel it would help out. We cannot assist in any lawsuit against any party involved, as we are not lawyers. We are just trying to make a difference in our policies we adhere to so that all parties have a fair and equal chance to be able to clear ones name and keep it clear.
Thank you for taking the time to care about the best interest of all children and their parents as a single unit working together for a safer tomorrow and families being together again.
