I do not often comment on the activities of paedophiles as in the Family Law industry it can so often be used as a false allegation in divorce/ separation cases as with domestic violence so a parent (most often the mother) can get her way in this already biased world!
Unfortunately the case that has come to my attention illustrates as much the corruption from with in County Halls up and down the land and how and why social services can act with immunity and I believe this particular paedophile had a bearing on my case back in 2004. http://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/news/8760755.Former_county_council_legal_chief_on_child_porn_charges/
I went to Watford County Court as it was clear my ex partner and mother to my children was not going to agree to any reasonable settlement unless it was to her financial benefit (not so much in the best interest of the children) so I sought robust advice and spent most of 2004 to and fro to Watford until October, and in the presence of a CAFCASS worker, was awarded a joint residency order and ample contact so as to offer my children a seamless life between both parents and even provided a second family home equal distance to the schools as the former one. A process that cost me (not legal aid) £35,000 in court fees and ultimately bankrupted me to the tune of £70,000. The Judge on the day was the now retired HHJ Viljon, who reminded me of Mr. Waverly from The Man from Uncle, offered both of us fatherly advice on how to make this order work, but sadly this fell on deaf ears in the case of my EX. With in 2 months she was seeking to disrupt the first Christmas contact and has not stopped to date as I now entre my 43rd month of Parental Alienation. By the Spring of 2005 she had recruited the services of Her Honour Judge Pearl who I believe should be struck off for coming from the Harriet Harmen school of equality and was happy to oblige my ex and unravel the hard fought for court order of the previous year. By this time funds had run out so I relied on a McKenzie friend from FNF the late Ian Mackay who was often ridiculed by this appalling judge and with his vast experience was deeply shocked when a court reporter from Hertfordshire County Council lied under oath so blatantly and Pearl just sat their lapping it up. From then on all my ex had to do was withhold my younger child with the promise of gifts and treats so my elder child felt put out and even guilty if he had to have time with me. ( I recall a minor argument between siblings out in the garden one day which I questioned, and was told my younger child had been given a computer game when he had stayed with his mum but there was no treat for my elder child when he returned) So Pearl, HCC and CAFCASS seemed intent on unravelling all the success achieved in that first year.
By now stony broke, in fact at one point my ex and new partner took possession of my former family home at a peeper corn rate in the same weekend I received a summons saying they were due to repossess the home I had subsequently acquired for my children's best interest, I contacted the legal depart of HCC under the leadership of the afore mentioned Andrew Laycock to seek some understanding of what had happened and why, but I spent days, weeks and eventually months being passed from pillar to post or to the next person who was interested in my case, usually a raw recruit they decided so fob my enquiry off to just to give them experience. Even to this day, and when I made a recent enquiry to County Hall concerned for the welfare of my children following intelligence I had gleaned from a parents evening, I was told "We are no longer involved in your case!" This reminded me of the CAFCASS at Luton one line response which told be not to keep bothering them. Well John Harris Head of CSF at HCC often receives links to my blogs as he will surely get this one with the question;
"Did his head of legal services truly have the children's best interest at heart?"
I will bother him but it is unlikely he will bother to reply! http://wardtimes.info/hertfordshire/east-herts/hertford/castle/news/former-hcc-legal-chief-admits-indecent-images-charges
