Our Eyes tell us if you are unfortunate enough to be heading for a divorce, you want to avoid litigation at all costs and more so if children are involved (Family Court in Albuquerque). Our Eyes tell us if children are involved you will be appointed a guardian by the court for the children. This is supposed to protect the children, however, costs a great deal of money. Both spouses are required to be tested by a sociologist and another separately for the child/children, again costing a large sum of money. After that, a wise person is appointed to work out disputes, costing additional money and last but not least, a communications expert is appointed so you can attend parenting classes.
Our EYES tell us that it is always the same so called experts that are appointed and for the most part the same attorneys. You are free to hire an attorney of your choice, however, attorneys we have spoken to want nothing to do with Family Court. Our Eyes tell us that the costs involved cause people to raid their child’s/children’s’ college fund(s), take a second mortgage on their homes, top out credit cards and finally go bankrupt. Of course we all can see how this really helps the family’s who are stuck in this cottage industry.
We clearly see how this fills the pockets of all the so called experts. Our thanks to KRQE CH13 for their fearless reporting on this subject; KRQE, Kim Holland reported on the brave mother who decided enough was enough, Holly Salzman. Salzman was assigned by the court a communications expert for parenting classes. Enter Mary Pepper, the expert, who would hold her classes in the Public Library to keep cost down, as stated by Pepper. Only one problem with this, it’s against the law to conduct business in a public library. Then Pepper would start each class with a prayer, against the Constitutional Rights of Salzman. After each class when payment was due Salzman had to pass cash under the table to Pepper, so no one could see. Pepper stated she could not accept cash in a public library, Pepper knew it was against the law. Pepper stated she receives about TEN Court Appointed cases a week. Folks this is 520 cases a year on a cash business. I.R.S. ARE YOU LISTENING? Pepper would then assign homework, Christian based, for Salzman to complete before the next meeting. This again is a violation of Salzman’s Constitutional Rights. When Salzman had enough of this under the table dealing and refused to attend any further classes with Pepper the Family Court Judge found Salzman in Contempt of Court and took Salzman's Children away from her. Judge Whitefield has ordered all Family Court Judges to recuse themselves from any case involving Salzman since this story broke on KRQE CH 13.
We at THE EYE wonder how this story will end. We can see Salzman suing everyone involved, except you can't sue a Judge. The Family Court has cut all ties with Pepper since the story broke. We at THE EYE wonder how many more Peppers involved or will be involved in this cottage industry. The Attorney General and The I.R.S. should investigate this, but we all know that will never happen, all these people are somebody and we are nobody. We at THE EYE suggest that before you get involved in this cottage industry, no matter how much you dislike the other person, husband or wife, work out an agreement between the two of you and take it to a Judge to sign. Or you can go bankrupt and your children will suffer along with you. We at THE EYE would like to hear your story. Again thanks to KRQE CH 13 for their fearless reporting and to the young mother Holly Salzman.
