Children are hostages between hostile parents

BEVERLY HILLS, California, U.S., Oct. 17, 2022 / — US court systems are putting children at risk following their custody decisions. This vulnerability issue also extends to those who oversee the safety of children. Thousands of children are reported injured, killed or missing by law enforcement every year while in designated custody. Chris Cavallo, the founder of CSI Secure Solutions, participated in a conference call with Coppertino and Associates to raise awareness of this growing epidemic in which children are being taken away from their parents, de facto parents, or those legally authorized just to to be put in danger.

CSI-Secure Solutions (“CSI”) offers a variety of services to its clients, including domestic investigations and consulting services. CSI operates a nationwide network that prioritizes child custody/support investigations to protect children from the dangers of living in abusive conditions. It is documented that every quarter over a million children are placed in the care of parents who are least qualified to provide custody. Chris Cavallo, a custody cases expert, shared his personal experience of losing custody of his own grandson. Mr. Cavallo emphasized that “children in custody battles often become pawns between two feuding parents and hostages that are emotionally and often scarred for life.”

The system of government does not prioritize the best interests of the child, coupled with the reluctance of the court to reverse its decisions when it is obvious that the child’s life is in danger. It is recognized that the involvement of child protection services exacerbates the dilemma already perpetrated by the court, as the child becomes a hostage that is not considered in the negotiations.

CSI handled a case involving a maternal father with a history of physical abuse, substance abuse, criminal convictions and other crimes. The maternal father was awarded custody of the child despite the legal paperwork presented to the court by child advocates and law enforcement officials. CSI’s client in this case was the de facto parent who had raised the toddler before the father’s claim for custody.

It all started when the de facto parent’s mentally challenged sister gave birth in a hospital. CSI’s client confirmed that the toddler’s father raped her sister in her rural California county. He convinced the hospital that he was the father and was allowed to sign the birth certificate. Mother and child lived with the de facto parent until the autistic toddler was suddenly taken away. When the court and child protection agency stepped in, they granted the convicted criminal custody without proof of citizenship, unlike CSI’s client, a well-educated Iraqi war veteran and autism specialist. It didn’t matter that the child would be more likely to grow up in a healthy environment if she lived with the CSI’s client, who was also married to a well-educated Iraqi war veteran.
The prospect of a stable environment was irrelevant as the court refused due process to the infant’s maternal aunt. The CSI client was not given an opportunity to speak on behalf of her sister or the autistic infant when advocating for the child’s continued care.

This appears to be one of thousands of stories across the United States. Children suffering this hardship are used as props to advance a system that violates the dignity of their existence. After the death of her mother, a 9-year-old was faced with the dilemma of trying to get custody of her father with drug problems. The child’s aunt was fighting for custody because the drug problem was the reason her sister left the marriage. In addition, the child’s father had made no effort to visit the child for over a year while he was in contact with drug addicts.
Interestingly, the court ruled that there was insufficient evidence to disqualify the father for custody purposes. It appeared that the court was more willing to allow the father to prove himself able to care for his daughter than the court was willing to consider the best interests of the child. There are instances where close relationships and deep pockets serve the unfit parent to the detriment of the child.

The biological parents of the child have priority over grandparents, uncles or aunts who may have raised the children for a long time. In one case, the children were removed from their grandmother’s care and handed over to their biological father. There were reports of continued molestation of the children while they were in their father’s care. However, the authorities did nothing to remedy the situation, instead ignoring the children’s and their grandmother’s complaints.

This tends to leave children feeling guilty over time as they build destructive coping mechanisms to cope with their situations. In most cases, children grow up believing that they are responsible for the wrong choices that the court and governmental system force upon them. It could turn into substance abuse, depression, suicide, anxiety, and other crises as the children eventually grow up in society.

People relate their experiences with making false statements about their children’s well-being. It seems that the authorities are trying to lure parents into getting information about their children. The agencies try to get the parents to admit the neglect so they can step in and transfer custody of the children to unsuitable people. These children are then subjected to conditions in which they are beaten, abused or killed without recourse. It calls on the government to train its staff on how to gather information without disrupting family dynamics. In fact, every action should promote the best interests of the child.

Children have the right to live in a society that promotes respect for their dignity and well-being. It is time to step in and end the relentless harassment and violence against children in our community. The false sense of caring should be replaced with a genuine commitment to keeping children under the care of people who care about their well-being and no other.
