Tennessee Family Court

WHBQ FOX13 could have said, “Sorry, we can’t investigate, because it’s a case of “he said/ she said.” Maybe the folks at WHBQ FOX13 know that you can say that about any story you’d rather not investigate. Thanks WHBQ FOX13, for your comprehensive news coverage. Now, if only all of the other news agencies would investigate the cases in their states…

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WHBQ FOX13 myfoxmemphis.com) — It’s one of the nastiest divorce and custody cases you’ve ever seen and a former Mid-South wife says she’s more convinced than ever the legal system is out to get her. Does she have a case? I-Team reporter Ernie Freeman reports on how a mother’s desperate cries for help are not being heard…

  1. I too am a mother in Tennessee that met with failure in family court and appellate court. I was never married to father of my son and he was diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder- recommended supervised visitation- expert testified. He has lengthy arrest record for assault and took my son without my permission with loaded firearm in the truck beside him- with witnesses that testified against him. He was verbally abusive to me, physically abusive to child and pets., again with witness testimony and pictures. I own my own home and child had great life, but wanted nothing to do with father. He was only 4. Judge denied protective order, awarded 50/50 shared custody, made father Primary Residential Parent. Appeals court upheld ruling, saying fathers relationship best served by decision and judge not obligated to consider all best interest factors. I never denied visitation, never broke a court order- just insisted on supervised contact. Yet court stated he was parent most likely to “facilitate a relationship”.

  2. 3 years ago I left a diagnosed bi polar man who had emotionally and verbally abused myself and the children for years. I was the primary caregiver in my sons life. He even called his dad by his first name. He was scared of his father. I moved to California and found a jobb teaching Kindergarden. My ex’s dad worked for the city and knew lots of people. Anyways something went wrong at court. I have never smoked or drank. I am an honest woman who loves her children more then anything. My ex said he would get custody and there was nothing I could do about it. I told the courts about the abuse and how my ex could not keep a job and lived with his parents. Not only did the courts not look in to the abuse the judge actually apologized to my ex and once again I felt the shame of abuse. The judge ordered my son back to my ex. The medical records of my ex were never shown to the judge by my lawyer. There is something very wrong about this story. I want this to be made public. I am going back to court. My ex is refusing my son much needed medical care. and I went as long as 5 months before not knowing where my son was living. I havent had a return call in months and only sometimes do I get to talk to him. His brothers miss him. He is living in a dirty unclean enviornment where he is made to pick up dog poop and he says the dogs poop in his room. It is really bad. This seems to be happening a lot. Why? How can I win in court and protect my son this time? Why are these courts failing to protect our children?
