Family Court Injustice is a blog whose mission is to tell the story of my family, who has been victimized by Family Court, in order to raise awareness, and expose abuse & corruption within the family court system.
FCI will include news articles and information about family court, and its systemic problems. As well share personal stories, and documentation, from my own experiences.
In April 2006, I was physically assaulted and forced to flee my home with two small children--both suffering from PTSD due to years of abuse at the hands of their father. The children and I were homeless for 18 months before being able to secure permanent housing. We went from living in our minivan and in shelters to finally securing a real home. Ultimately, the children were denied their family, home and place of safety by the corrupt and immoral family court, and its cohorts.
After I fled the home, the abuser threatened he would retaliate against me by taking full custody of the children, he said he will do this because “I want you to know how it feels to be hurt”. My family has been involved in ongoing family court litigation since 2006 in Hennepin County, 4th Judicial District, Minnesota. I will continue to fight to keep my children safe, and to bring them home where they belong–safe, loved and protected.
Daycare worker documents my children are playing “Call 911, Daddy’s here!”
The Family behind “Family Court Injustice” has survived abuse and homelessness. When they finally secured a real home, and felt safe, they were forcibly separated by Family Court.
This family is a close and loving family, who enjoys spending time together going to church, going on adventures or playing board games. This family is supported by a loving circle of family and friends, who continue to pray that these children will be returned home, and that justice will prevail.
In my senior year of high school, I was lured offline from an internet chatroom to meet Martin Hegland–who initially seemed harmless, a friend. Martin turned out to be much older (31), but he won my trust through manipulation and the type of grooming used by child predators. I felt trapped into a relationship she did not want due to abuse and intimidation, and lived in fear until the relationship ended after a violent altercation, which me homeless with two small children to care for.
I was primary caregiver of 2 children until forcibly separated due to family court injustice. I have continued to fight for the return of my children, and restoration of my parental rights for over a decade.
Outside of family court, I work in the healthcare field. I am also an active volunteer in the community. My hobbies include photography, writing, cooking & genealogy. I am currently working on a memoir called “Until Prayers are Answered”.
Child 1 DJ, male: DJ is very intelligent, with a strong interest in science. DJ’s dream is to become an inventor and create products that will help people improve their lives (and he will give a portion of the proceeds to charity). DJ loves going on adventures with Mommie–exploring parks, historical sites or getting lost on back roads (all great places to learn new things!). He laughs as Mommie always manages to get lost on these adventures. DJ is very thoughtful, and gives Mommie hugs so tight she can barely breathe!
Child 2, JJ, female: JJ is creative, outgoing, excels in anything dramatic (music, dancing, acting, art). Her dream is to become a teacher or a mommy. JJ is alot like her mother in temperment & personality…they share many of the same talents, interests & expressions. JJ loves to cuddle with Mommie. She will go into her closet to chose glamourous outfits & sparkly jewelry. She loves it when Mommie styles her hair and make-up, but she is also a bit of a tomboy–loud and daring!
(Not involved in this custody dispute)
Child 3, RJ, male: The baby of the family, RJ is cuddly and adores his older siblings. He has an interest in trains, and can name all the parts of a steam engine and how they work. RJ is outgoing with a happy personality. He loves to sing, and has a gift for mimicking bird calls. His favorite food is Chinese buffet. And he loves to read books, especially with his “Sissy”.
JJ is especially close to RJ–she carries him, holds his hand in the grocery store so he won’t wander away & snuggles with him during a movie. When snuggled up, RJ will put his hand on his sister’s tummy, and lay his head against her chest, he feels safe & loved in her arms.
DJ is a protective big brother, researching the latest gadgets to keep RJ safe or the most educational toys. He will use his allowance to buy special treats for RJ. DJ’s funny faces and silly voices always get RJ laughing, we call on DJ for help when taking pictures. DJ feels proud to be a big brother, he especially likes to buckle RJ in his carseat, taking care that he is safe. When in the backseat together, DJ will play with his brother and make faces that get him laughing..they have really bonded on these trips.
RJ has really suffered with the loss of his siblings–he cries at the end of visits, and frequently asks for them. He walks around the house pointing to their picture, or holding up the toys they once played with….calling their name into the empty rooms.
