Default Child molestation/Custody matters of a politician

I'm going to try to be as quick as possible. My last go at this...I guess timed out and I lost all I typed.

Custody case in VA.

My kids father was a local politician. He is now head of a Tribe here.

We have tow children 4 (boy) 5(girl). Our 5 year old was born deaf but now has an implant and is in speech therapy.

We been in court for the last few years. Our children have displayed sexual behaviors. I caught him watching porn with our daughter and she was foundling him. I reported it to the police and social services. Nothing happened. I was called a liar by a judge that is his friend and is known to protect politicians he know. I took a polygraph about what I reported after this and posted it on social media and submitted it to social services. This judge is no longer an active judge. About a year ago he was in the news for dismissing about 12 felony charges filed against another politician he knew. I think the pressure from that forced him to retire.

Before this judge retired he appointed the ex partner of the lawyer to my kids father in this case as Guardian Ad Litem. That GAL has done everything except act in the best interest of my children.

I am back in court now petitioning for custody. My kids father niece contacted me via FB and told me that he had molested her from the age of 6, took her virginity at 12 and was still raping her. She said she is made to be at his home with my children and sometimes he takes them behind closed doors and they scream. She said my son has come out of the room with him limping.

She told me that my kids father does sexual things to her in front of my children and told her that it's okay to do it. She said my kids try to lick her legs in a sexual way. She said she has recordings of how he treats her.

She spoke to the police after I sent her messages to the FBI, VA State Police and the Deputy Attorney General's office. The state police and the Deputy Attorney General's office contact my local police dept. Because I have no faith in that police dept I went to them first and only talked to that police dept because I felt that because other eyes were on them..they would do their job.

The Lt who investigated said he was more concerned with what he had done to his niece than about my children. He literally said that.

I thought that filing for a protective order to help my children would hellp but the JDR court services worker refused to type up the petition and allow me to present it to the judge. He and my kids father are friends and there were other times that this court services refused to do this job. The court services worker when to the LT to get the evidence that his niece sent to him. I learned from the court services worker...not the Lt investigating the complaint that the Lt was closing the investigation.

My kids father began to threaten his niece and she became afraid. She told me she thought she would have to leave her home to hide from him so he won't her. She hasn't spoken with me since.

There is an internal investigation into the acts of the court services worker. But my kids are still being hurt. My daughter said that her father hurt her and pointed to her private area. I reported it...nothing was put into place to protect her.

I can't afford an attorney...he. can but now that we have a different judge I believe my kids have a chance. I just know I cant represent myself. His lawyer is really nasty...and given the GAL is his ex partner...I'm not being heard. The GAL even gave his lawyer information that he didn't give me and I was legally entitled to...the judge called him out on it but didn't remove him.

I did have a number and an address for the niece and I gave it to the GAL. He said he wasn't going to contact her because it was inappropriate to ask a young lady about the things she sent me. But after her uncle intimidated her or got some one to pretend that they were her...the GAL called the number that they gave him to call but he refused to call the number I gave him.

I was told that GALs can do a lot..never have her come to court. I asked him if he could do that...his response via email is that his role isn't to prove a case for me. My response to him is...that his role is to act in the best interest of my children and refusing to contact the sender of those messages just says shows that my children are not of concern to him...so as you can imagine...he and I are not on good terms..

He stopped responding to me.

I contacted FB to ask them to send the state police info on those messages like the IP address and location but they have not responded to me.

I don't know what to do to help my kids. My daughter locks the car door so I can't take her to go with her dad. I have learned to leave one car door open or take my keys out so that she can't lock me out by the time I get around to undo her seat belt

My kids beg me to not send them. I don't know what to do. My kids father is sick and needs help. To try to get him to get treatment I have ask that he agree and we leave it out of the custody order And he refuses. He has a image to keep up in this community and money, his image and molesting children are all he cares about

I received an email from his ex wife who said she went through the same thing and she had to protect her kids.. she made a point to tell me that he's very careful in what he does at to not to cause any damage until they reach a certain age.

I believe she was able to have more than just her word but video or something to back it up because he was made to retire from the Army because of it...but no charges were ever filed

I need direction. A child should not have to suffer through this and I would give up my life to make sure this stops...I'm just trying my very best to do this the right way

I wish to inform you that you may seek court order regarding no contact with children. You may inform judge about actions of your children and court may ask your children about their views regarding child custody. Court takes into account best interest of child as main consideration. You may also seek directions from court which may be required to protect children. As other law enforcement official are not assisting you thus court order may provide relief to you. You may also appeal decisions if lower court denies relief to you.

@AFF.... The current judge seems to be more concerned about the well-being of my children than the judge before him and i think that is a win for my children but it's not going to protect them. He was very direct with me and told me that I needed to prove that she sent those messages to me and even subpoena her so that she could testify.

Problem with that is she is no longer talking to me and I only have her mother's address.I was told her messages are not admissible unless she is present in court to be questioned about them.

My daughter's statement to me. I don't know if she would repeat it. When I did speak to the Lt. about it he said it was better that I not ask anything because everything is considered a statement. My daughter is in speech therapy and she is making progress. Shes doing really well.

When she told me that her dad hurt her and pointed to her private area...I had to find a safe place within myself to not react. She said it twice...I hugged her and said nothing. I didnt know what to say. I had to go in a room alone to try to collect my myself...it took everything in me to not go to his home. I went to my daughter and I told her that I was going to make everything okay...she nodded.

I can't let her down. I meant what I said to her. I don't know how to get Facebook's attention.

Because he knows she is intimidated by him his lawyer is trying to discredit the messages and spoke as if I sent them to myself. His lawyer told the judge that his niece said she had never spoken to me. I honestly think the judge was believing him until I told the judge not only did she contact me but Lt. Cobb.

Without her I think my children won't have a chance. In VA children are typically not given a option to say where they want to live until they are about 10.

I'm just so lost right now. I know some judges frown on recordings And think children are coached. Someone suggested that I record the drop offs...I have already done that in the past but I didn't think I could use it for court.

When they have to go back...I walk them over to him and they are constantly saying I don't want to go to daddy. Because I feel they are going to get in trouble with him for saying it...I try to quiet them. Its like their bodies go limp and they cry. He will say "oh their just sleepy". Pick up and drop off is in the same location...same time so i have been approached by people who know us and have witnessed the drop offs and they speak of their concern for my children on how they react to him. The only problem is no one ever wants to "get involved".

There has to be a way to protect them. And yes I plan to appeal if it doesn't go in my children's favor.

I was told to try legal aid..but the last time I went to them...I was told by them that they do not help with contested custody.

I'm a bit confused as the the last two replies...I took AFFA response as simply trying to help/input on my situation to help my children...so I don't take offense to anything AFFA said in his or her post.

I don't know if the other person responding is just trolling...but this is a very serious situation. There's no point in doing that.
