Attorney: Agency deprives rights
W-B attorney says he will file lawsuit on behalf of 25 parents against Luzerne County Children and Youth.

WILKES-BARRE – A local attorney said he plans to file a federal lawsuit today on behalf of approximately 25 parents who allege Luzerne County Children and Youth violated their constitutional rights in placing their children in foster care.

Times Leader Photo StoreJames Hayward of Wilkes-Barre said the lawsuit will be a wide-ranging indictment of Children and Youth that will rival the egregiousness of the allegations contained in the “kids-for-cash” lawsuits involving former county Judge Mark Ciavarella’s placement of juveniles in detention centers.

“It’s just like the ‘kids-for-cash’ case again,” Hayward said. “Everyone knew what Ciavarella was doing and didn’t do anything about it. Well, they all know what Children and Youth is doing and they’re not doing anything about it.”

What Children and Youth is doing, Hayward said, is routinely Children and Youth violated their constitutional rights regarding court hearings that determine whether their children will remain in foster care or be returned home.

The suit revolves around dependency court, which involves children who have been removed from their homes based on allegations of abuse or neglect. It is separate from delinquency court, which involves the placement of juveniles accused of crimes.

Under state law, Children and Youth can take immediate custody of a child only if it can be shown there is an imminent threat to the child’s safety or health. A shelter care hearing must then be held to review that determination.

Hayward said he has interviewed numerous parents who say they were never given a hearing, or were given such short notice that they could not present a meaningful rebuttal to the agency’s allegations.

“I have four clients whose shelter care hearing was either scheduled while they were in the hospital, or they never had a shelter care hearing and they took the kids off them,” he said.

Hayward said that in one case, his client had just given birth via caesarian section. Children and Youth sought to place the child. A shelter care hearing was scheduled just after she gave birth, which precluded her from attending.

Hayward said he went to the hearing on her behalf and obtained a continuance. But that did not stop the agency from taking the child anyway.

“They went that night or the night after and took the baby out of the hospital and put it in foster care,” Hayward said.

Another issue, Hayward said, is the agency’s practice of taking a newborn from the biological parents based solely on the fact the parents have other children who are currently in foster care.

Hayward said the law says agencies can do that only if a parent has previously had his or her parental rights to other children terminated. Luzerne County is doing so even when that is not the case, he said.

“If you have a child in the system, as far as they are concerned, every child is in the system. That’s not the law,” he said. “They can do whatever they want and get away with it, and no one is challenging them.”

Joe DeVizia, director of human services for the county, said he was advised Wednesday that Hayward planned on filing a lawsuit. DeVizia said he did not know what the specific allegations are, but insisted Children and Youth is working for the best interest of children.

“There are a lot of issues surrounding why kids are in placement,” DeVizia said. “Our number one concern is always the safety and welfare of children.”

More than two dozen parents, some of whom are plaintiffs in the pending suit, gathered at the Luzerne County Courthouse on Wednesday for an impromptu rally.

DeVizia said he and Children and Youth Director Frank Castano spent nearly five hours meeting with 15 to 20 parents. He said he would ensure their concerns were addressed.

Hayward said the suit will name Children and Youth as a defendant, as well as individual agency employees, the county and its human services department. The suit will not name judges who presided over dependency court, he said.

      Do not let anyone from CPS in your house without a warrant – A warrant being there is probable cause to believe that something illegal is going on in your home
      If they say they have reasonable suspision make them go back and get a warrant. they have no right to be in your home. don’t allow them in.

    WAY TO GO!!!! This is exciting news for us here in PA!!! Can’t wait for this to happen in my county…The Vile and corruption of these tyrants brought to light! WOOOO HOOOO!!!! 🙂


  7. Christina says:

    Unfortunately, this is happening all over the continental US. Anywhere you go they will be there. The only way to stop this is to stand and fight. I have been dealing with this system for over 15 years now. I had a cps worker before I had a child. No reason. I don’t do drugs, don’t have a criminal history. NOTHING!! They show up at my home with no reports. They force me to get on “welfare” because my income isn’t high enough. They tell me I need to move, even tho I have a home of my own (funny how homelessness really happens lol). There is never an end. They always come. Once, they even hassled me over not getting my son Valentine’s day cards. They are petty and rude and will do anything they want when they want.

    We will have to fight back. That’s the only way to win.

    Butte County CPS is no different from what you are describing in San Bernadino and Victorville, CA. I live in town of Chico. I know a young mother who has a disability and this is the only reason they took her baby from her. They even showed up at hospital to say they had to come do a “health and safery check” before the infant could come home. The baby was born with a disability and could have very easily recieved services from Far Northern Regional Center, which has Early Intervention Child services for infants-3 ys. old. They just pay the CCS, California Children’s Services to have a specialized staff person or a nurse come into the home to offer support to mother and baby. This has to stop, this discrimination of disabled and non-disabled parents. Have you parents in other counties been “getting the CASA volunteer reports” that you are suppose to by law get two days ahead of the Court Hearings and by your “court-appointed attorneys”. Look on your county Courts ( Trial Court ) webpage and click on any tab you may see that says “Court Rules”……it will tell you the requirements of your own court-appointed attorney, the Casa Worker’s responsibility in filing her or his reports to the judge prior to any hearing and five days ahead of time. My friend was completely denied the CPS Family Reunification Serivces that if you have a baby you should get this for 6 months. If child is 3 or over 3 then you get it for 12 mnths. Do you all know about the Family Code 7950 called Preferential Relative Placement under current California Law? It says when a child is removed from a parent, then that same parent has some say so to the child being placed with your closest relative like a sibling, parents, and so the Grandparents of your baby or child. You know, that once your child is in the custody of CPS and Courts for 15-22 months ( usually they go for 15months) this is the point in time when they get it court-ordered to terminate your parental rights permanently. Try to find attorneys that are out of your local area. It’s the same here they don’t want to go up against CPS, but there were two private attorney’s here willing to take my friend’s case……she just didn’t have the beginning retain fee of $3500 or $5000.

    Cps is the devil. They have us in court on BOGUS accusations. They’re sucking the life out of our family. they say our children are deprived, I SAY THEY’RE DEPRIVING OUR CHILDREN AND OUR WHOLE FAMILY! We have started to fight back with them. We will file a lawsuit and as many complaints as it takes. We will bring this injustice to light. We have to stand for every family and child across the board. They have treated us as if we have NO rights! I pray for all who have to deal with this evil organization. May God be with you all! I have found this website useful. and also check out AFRa. I will not rest until justice is served. They can never give us back the time they’ve taken from us and the emotinal distress thay have caused us and our children. Just to say what they did for my 7 yr old. They took my custody and gave it to a criminal father jointly who is also an alcholic. who only took action on my family because he wants to be relieved of his child support obligation. I know this in my heart.he’s no good for the kids which is why i left him to begin with!! he called cps with all of these false accusations. instead of dropping it, cps has been dragging us to court. not only us but the moron who called them to begin with. ironic i guess. the caseworker filed all this BOGUS crap in juvenile court and they’re dragging it on and on and on and on. Its simply ridiculous. if they only knew how ignorant they all really sound. anyway, I don’t appreciate they way they treat people. Its not right. Something MUST be done about this!!!!!!!!!

They said they took them because the youngest child was positive for drugs and my daughter was positive. The father wos positive they said. They never would show us testing that they did. I made the report that the father has beat my grandson and left bruses on arm, hand, back and legs with a belt. He was 6. CPS had a garidian atligtm apointed for the children She left and after she saw them for 2 hrs. Never call back. When they decided that the mother would get them back and the father would be visting father. They never gave the parents a drug test to see if they were free of drugs before giving them back and that is why the took them in the first place. They appointed another garidian of the same day the children were given back and she has never talked the children of seen them and it has been five months now. My grandchildren are in danger for the future going to see the father. Grave danger and they will not talk to the children or to me or my daughter about the drugs that dad is still doing even not and they have not closed the case.

    They are using federal grant money – AV funds – to sell your children. It is an epidemic, yes. They built an industry 10+ years ago to do all this… and they have made MILLIONS. (that is not an understatement) Well, they have gotten sloppy… and arrogant.
    We are building an industry to fight these sickos back… and we will win… yes, we will.
    I read a comment above stating, `they are trying to intimidate you` Made me smile… whoever wrote that is dead-on. DO NOT let them intimidate you! They are cowards, and they know they are fooling you.
    Are you a trusting person? Are you easily pushed over? Are you a good hearted and honest person? Are you kind, caring, and did you let them in your house without question because you had nothing to hide and you thought they have `the children`s best interest` on their mind… yes, you did and are all the things listed above… guess what? When they met you they profiled you for this role… if you are the way described above, you are a perfect target.
    And the `best interest of the child`.. is a marketing tag line to gain your trust.
    They will even relate to you… they will tell you their child was sexually abused too, they will tell you their sister or neighbor went through what you are – all you have to do are the things on the list and you will be fine… then WHAM, they set you up… and you get yet another list… the most lists, the more court appointed child abusers (we call them CACA`s) are appointed to your case… the more money they make. Every court date, every meeting, every supervised visitation (Supervised visits pay out a lot to them!)
    They rake in the cash.. and the kind unsuspecting victim is none the wiser. You will maybe start to believe the dumb and ridiculous things they say about who you are, what you have done, how they interpreted things… you will start to wonder if you do not think like others do… I mean, they are child protective services right? We call them CFS – chronic fatigue syndrome. They will harass you – every day you will feel fatigued by their abuse.
    You have to get out your tape recorder, click record… hide it somewhere on you or in your home… then agree to have a meeting with them… and file your nails while you whistle and when they ask you if you are paying attention to them say, `nah, you are only here to collect the check you get from our meeting right?`
    They WILL tell you that you sound nuts – and your theory of fraud is in sane… blah blah blah… they ARE TRYING TO INTIMIDATE YOU! They do not want to be found out. After all it is FRAUD with Access Visitation Funds… they are using these funds for things they were not intended for… no grant money was meant to steal kids…
    They are making quotas too – like speeding tickets or parking tickets… the county makes $4000 – $6000 per child placed into foster care. Even more $ if the child has special needs… how sick is that right?
    These people are monsters. And cowards.
    You are better than them. Fight back. AND RECORD EVERYTHING! DO NOT talk to them on the phone. DO NOT get in front of them without a recorder. And no need to tell them you are recording.. they are gov`t workers. They do not need to know they are recorded.
    ANY court appointee – counselor – custody evaluator – parenting coach, psychologist appointed, parenting consultant, ANYONE — EVEN IN THE COURTROOM! RECORD RECORD RECORD!!! IF YOU DO NOT – you WILL remain without your kids! Mark those words down.
    Additionally, after you record their visit once, let them know you did. If you have supervised visitation – Oh MY GOSH – RECORD IT RECORD IT RECORD IT! AND HAVE WITNESSES PRESENT! If they tell you no witnesses – no recording… WELL, then there is your sign… That can be considered an admission of guilt and you HAVE to no longer see them… or record it without their knowledge. Do not miss this CRUCIAL step.
    They plan to make false allegations and send them into the courtroom against you! DO NOT LET THEM WALK ALL OVER YOU!

    And with your bucket of recordings, their false reports, and giggles… file that civil lawsuit!! And then put your babies in your car seat and run to the bank with your check!

    These CPS workers and low lifes in the courtroom (whores of the courts) – are sick – cowards… and they are criminals. Treat them as such. Give them the same regard they treated you with… but no cussing, no yelling, no reaction at all to their abuse on you… simply belittle them… ask them – on a scale of 0-10, how do you rate your behavior… 10 that you get you are an evil and malicious person meddling in the relationship between a mother and her child… or 0 that you have no conscience what so ever?

    Have they done the 0-10 scale with you yet… gag reflex. Flick them away like a pesty fly.

    God STILL reigns in this world. He is angry about this disgusting industry… He is coming to heal it all – the long arm of the Lord is coming to family court! Very soon!

    • Michael Madden says:

      I anticipate being the courtroom in lovely Sacramento, California in the next couple of days. It is not for me though, I will be there on behalf of a young woman that had her 3 children removed on Friday. I had been in law school last year, a career change prompted by CPS involvement in my life. I am a single father of two beautiful children (boy 10 & girl 6). There mother who abandoned behind substance abuse had all 6 of her prior children parental rights terminated. Needless to say, she is monitored by the hospitals, so when my son was born, and I am about raising my children, I am guilty by association and receive those special services that are nothing more than manifestations of those proverbial hoops I was required to jump through (this part gets better with my daughter). Just under a year case is closed out, but not before I had 13 CPS workers sitting in the courtroom gallery being admonished by the judge/referee for not allowing me visits. A state this as besides them catching up on my visits (meaning more time with my son), I possess documentation that is will only ever be any sort of viable tool like the author said. So then along comes my princess. Mom was doing well as I used to work in psych hospitals back in NY (even being program director of one in Marin Co.), and was well aware of strategies and approaches regarding substance abuse. When CPS showed up at the hospital I was told I could avoid a case if I made the children’s mother move out. I am a proud Irish man (dual citizenship) and I do not need any bureaucratic arm of the government instructing me on how to conduct my household. Well, I guess here in Sacramento not going along with their scheme amounts to the unwritten criterion under W & I code 300 constituting child abuse to the degree the court took dependency & continued to hold removal over my head. Honestly, I am afraid of how I would have reacted if they ever got up the nerve to attempt it. I received a case that went on for over 2 and a half years for failure to protect. Those programs that I had done before, I had to successfully complete 2 or 3 more times. It is all they had so they kept making me repeat them. Eventually they removed mom from the house and if she ever tested dirty it counted against me. There silly little waste of monies drug court I successfully completed a couple of times again, but as long as they kept my case open I had to do aftercare which typically meant you may have to test one or twice a month. But I am special, they hired some square chump who had a masters degree in alcohol AND drug addiction. I had to test 3 times a week and every test of mine went to the lab for further breakdown. I filed my own 366 to end my case and that day in the courthouse, with negative tests in hand, the social worker stood up and told the judge she observed me drinking a beer (the date & time she claimed I had tested 10 hours after that). I guess to deter other attempts by me to try and take back control of my life, about a month or so after that at a review hearing, she produced for the court another dirty on me. The lab determined I had try to cheat the test by diluting my urine as my creotins were 2 points outside the desired levels. Mind you, it was summer here and it gets in the triple digits. This clown would randomly call me up to come and test with him about 3 miles away to which I would walk there with the children drinking water and gatorade. There is even a strip on the cup that considers if the test might be diluted & if he would have informed me I would have sat there ’til I could have produced another test for him. How I got the case closed is one Monday morning, tired of all the crap, I called up the social worker and sid I had used all weekend (that is what she wanted to hear). She came to the house trying her best to fake empathy that I had finally got honest with myself & I would have to go test. The worker that tested me complimented by stating I showed great integrity in coming clean as I wasn’t even dirty. . . No Kidding! I stated this to affirm everything this site’s author has written (and I have even more tales). However, I responded to your post regarding attorneys and Cali. How this is finally going to eventually turn is through our voice. I do LDA work but I am not an attorney. I will be addressing the court for this gal and I am almost sure if I am not given a warning I will be locked up a couple of nights for contempt. I am preparing documentation for her as by myself I don’t think anyone present will be moved by my grand gesture (I will not be fronting myself as representation, but rather a scholar of jurisprudence challenging the constitutionality of the court as a matter of public policy (not to mention I have a bit of a reputation with CPS at the courthouse). CPS even offered me a paid advocates decision at the close out of my case, right. I do however made invitations and arrangements for transportation to ensure that the court will not be my only audience for address. When you spend 2 and a half years with a CPS you meet a lot of people (many are the professionals that had to provide the services to me) who know your innocence and respect your fortitude. They are folks familiar to the courts and the workers too. Thing is, they happen to be just people who have pledged to me a lifetime of support. Not to mention 3 years ago I was one of three founders to open a district elementary school (LEA’s are another corrupt bureaucratic agency with 6 figure salaries from monies made available for our children’s statutorily mandated education that believe themselves to be immune to the voice of the people. We got approved by the school board that we were a complete district school honoring their collective bargaining agreements, but allowing us the autonomy of our own governance regarding school climate and strategies employed to ensure the academia of our scholars. In other words, this support from the board was coerced by our production of documents showing support for the endeavor of members higher up on the political food chain (legislators). I have kept in touch. This is what it takes Shawna to create the chain that is needed. I not saying revolt, I am saying to take up your shield of civil disobedience and lead your community of fellow sufferers. Everyone going through this has to get it off their chest and this usually occurs at a one of the many bitch sessions at some program break. But Shawna, when you are participating in these informal community partnerships (they are that if you see them as such), don’t let your words become just complaining; instead realize all in attendance are in unity in your shared pain and let your words become words of empowerment and leadership so were your time comes to address your cry for reform to this very harmful broken system, your voice will gain the magnitude of thunder as you are en massed by these very same individuals grateful and proud to stand silently and in support of what your speaking. Take care and remember, finish every attempt they make to trip you up with head high and a smile on your face, BUT do not ever forget the treacherous audacity and sin inspired intentions that best describes the evil conduct these individuals perpetrated on your person and the persons of your family. Bye!

  30. Trisha Gadbois says:

    I am sickened by the reality of the CORPORATION and my ignorant involvement as a slave to it. CPS took 4 of my children granted legal custody of them to a “christian” friend who said they were there to help me when I was down depressed for fear of losing my kids due to horror stories I heard about CPS and them taking kids.CPS became involved because a neighbor called on me because she got mad I had issues with my husband and wasn’t talking/spending time with her much anymore(my ex husband WAS abusive to me). Then CPS took my newborn baby recently I had with my fiance/”common law husband” whom I believe God sent because he never abused me like exes (God knows the future so why would He join you in a STATE marriage to begin with let alone with a man HE knows will abuse you? Obviously that marriage was never ordained of God from get go but MY choice instead of waiting on God Almighty). I have found your site refreshing and would like to become a member. I am a christian and I need serious help to get our son back(the reason they gave for taking this son is I refused a vitamin K shot at birth for him and a rhogam shot during pregnancy). He was born healthy and without any medical problems because of my failure to get the vaccine during pregnancy which I have read has a variety of potential dangers to unborn babies even by many other women like myself(I met ALOT in groups specifically regarding the subject) who had the vaccine and their child/as well as themselves had physical and neurological damages from the vaccine. I have also read about dangers of Vitamin K and opted out of that as well(they never took my 2 year old for refusing vitamin K at hospital) My fiance and I also need to have a legitimate/NOT STATE marriage license because we want to be married under God. Any help would be appreciated on our start towards Freedom from the beast system mentioned in revelation of the bible. Thank you. My Kids are not the same smiley kids who competed to pick flowers for me. I am going to file appeals for them and also file for my new baby. 2 court cases because of their kidnapping and fabrications. They lied and said my kids are dependent and neglected on both cases. I love my babies more than anything and have been terrorized and continue to be terrorixed for no reason. The judge goes along with whatever they say. I wasn’t allowed to have a psych by a neutral doctor. Only theirs. I passed the psych and their doctor said I was able to love and care for my kids and the 2nd time he testified his story was different. I have both of his paper evaluations.. I only saw him 1 time. My old attorney gave them to me behind their backs. They did an evaluation on my 9 year old 1 year after they had him. If he was so bad off from being with me then why did they wait so long to evaluate? They had to “brainwash” him for a year to get him to submit to their wishes I guess. I love you all with my life and will continue fighting for you. I did their case plan but it wasn’t good enough. I had to pay child support and now they started taking it out for my new baby. They are getting money from me and system.

  38. Jessica Reid says:

    I am asking anybody out there that can help me/ give me advice on what to do? I have very very little time. I have a case going with Orange County Social Services. They took my son away from me after he was born, because my sons father was loaded in the hospital calling the nurses bitches, wasnt there when my son was born, was runing in and out of the hospital yelling at me for god knows what. Anyways I was in labor for 15 1/2 hrs, I was on epideral ivys and what ever else I was being administeresd. Due to the fathers behavior I was given a drug test a half an hour before giving birth to my son which came up a false possitive for aphetimines. (something of the sort). My son was tested 3x and negative on every one. The nurse told me before wheeling me up to the recovery room that they called a emergency responce social worker. she told me that if I dont tell her that I use drugs that they will take my child from me and I would never get him back. I was ordered to due parenting classes I completed my court ordered parenting classes through faces and also did aan online parenting class on my own. both of them the social worker prascilla morfin did not accept at first. The social worker did not advise me to do randomize drug testing but lied and said she did. When I found out that I was suppose to do them I complied and tested negative every time. still not good enough for the social worker she still says that I have a drug problem. I told her to run my background and you will see that I have nothing on my record. she told me that because of all the missed tests that I was not even aware of, means I do have a drug problem. (a miss is same as a dirty) not exactly fare when I wasnt even told about them. Not my son is one yrs old and the grandma (sons fathers mom) has gradianship of my son and has been pushing really hard to adopt him. lieing to the social worker telling her that I am doing drugs the social worker does not investigate, she believes the grandmother about every single thing that she tells her. they have become friends. close enough to be talking on a daily basis. my sons father Simarron Holguin lost his parental rights, has 3 other children that he lost and is not even suppose to be around because he struck on of them when he went to go hit the mother. (He resides at his mothers place with my son. I tell the social worker and all she does is call the grandmother and asks her and of course she is going to say no, instead of investigating like she is suppose to do) and he also sexually mollested 2 of them as well as the grandfather montgomery holguin. My sons grandmother takes my son to the grandfathers house and drops his off there because she has health issues and cant barely lift him up without griping about it. I have video and audio evidence of the grandfather telling the grandmother which by the way are devorced, to not worry that he has money to pay off who ever he needs to and that he will make sure that I dont get in the way or even have a chance to get him back, he will make sure I never see him again. I ran into him when I was walking out of the laundry matt and he called me a “cunt, stupid bitch, told me that he will bet me $1000 that and I quote :”that, that little boy is his” and to not worry his finances are all in line and everything is set that I am not getting him back. A coupld days ago I called up the social worker Prascilla Morfin and she very bluntly told me that I am not getting him back and as well as her suppervisor, which to me completly fits with montgomerys comments about paying the people off that he needs to make sure I dont get my son. My court date is not until nov. 20th and they already know that I am not going to get him, which from my knowledge I thought that was up to the judge. Weird!
    I love my son and I am begging for someone to anyone to please help me. I am a good mom, I have more than I need for my son to care for him. I have a job doing in home health care, ( 2 clients) one I make $7hr a few days a week few hrs a day and the other on I make $25hr working 4 days a week 5 hrs a day. pluse I am starting my own computer repair business on the side which so far seems to be going really well for me so far. I have a home for my son. I don’t party, I don’t drink but once in a blue blue moon, I absolutly so not use drugs in which I am being accused of which I have proved over and over that I do not. (still dont believe me because my sons father has a very very extensive unsolved drug problem/ abuse issues so they think I do for being with him.) I have no criminal record as well as nothing in black white and color you can think of drug related. I am a first time mother have her child taken from her due to alligations and because im am nobody the judge is going to naturally believe a social worker over me. I am lost with very little time left. my attorney doesnt fight for me. so im begging for anyone out there that will. Please I have money, not loaded but making it. so anybody please please help me. (714) 651-9857 Jessica Reid thank you very much and god bless. If I don’t answer my phone for some reason please call (714) 280-3020 my message phone which someone will always answer. again thanks.

My oldest son is suffering at the hand of the true abuser who paid a hefty sum “to adopt him”…with no grounds. I went to trial even….and all 12 jurors voted for me, yet I still lost all my children. The stress even caused me to bear my 3rd son….stillborn.

  50. Tony says:

    I’m Tony & I live in Victorville, Ca. My 4 kids were taken from me by L.A. County CPS in the Pasadena office. The social workers had made false statements to keep my kids from me. When the Judge found out about it she quit her job because of that. 11/30/2011 the case was then transferred to the County of San Bernardino. I was told by the Judge of that court that when I complete all court orders I will then get my last to kids back. Well I had completed everything in July of 2012. The social worker who had the case call both of my employers & made false statements to them so I would be fired. Then had my daughter lie & make a police report say that I hurt her. I have the police report that shows that everything the worker did was for keeping my child from me for money. Is their an attorney here in California that are willing to sue for money because I lost my kids & one of my grand kids because of these people?
