Stay strong! I have a 14 year old son and he is in a similar situation in Florida.
Children are precious and should have a voice in every corner of the world.
Shame on all adults who use children in order to control or hurt their spouses while ignoring how much damage they are doing to our future adults!
Loving parents listen to their children and allow them to grow confident and strong!
Good luck to you Brianna.

I will Share and continue the Intl boycott fight against, Fl violations with children & Families. NOT allowed in most states and Many countries!!!!
Florida is the worse state! They do not take child abuse seriously. They punish the protective "good parent". Go to www.factscourtwatch.org. horrifying stories
I love you and your mother so much sweetie. Just do not ever give up hope. Never give up on prayer. I know GOD will always protect you.
I signed the petition , and I wish I could again
Do you know if she has a Guardian ad Litem? She should in a situation like this to give her a voice.
Bryanna- Please ask your lawyer or someone in the know. I know that you can be appointed a Guardian ad Litem who will go into court and represent your voice.
In reality The Gardian Ad Litems are a voice for the "judges" not the children. The "protective parent" will get an "incredibly over-flated" bill from the GAL that will cause them to go bankrupt and or then possibly arrested for not being able to pay it. It's all about bias and $$$ in Florida!
In Penna., GAL's are appointed by the Court to represent Children and the County pays the tab. I don't understand WHY these Parents are being charges for a GAL. I guess every State is different, but I wouldn't pay their fees either because the GAL's here don't really give a Sh*t, and usualy only support one side, not what's best for the kids ! They do what the Judge tells them to do, and custody/visitation decisions are made recklessly and irresponsibly !!
Be very careful with GAL's, especially in Florida. They often side with whoever has the best financial means to pay and not what is in the best interest of the child. I know a GAL who has a court documented history of violence yet is GAL to protect children.
The US is not immune...we can stop this!
i like your attitude i love psychology
Put all your faith and trust in God, you are his child, this will work out for you much better than you could ever imagine, God is fighting this battle for you! Stay stong!
She is God's child an as US

butrat attacks. I will pray for you hon God Bless you keep me updated. Rev. Terry Reeves of Living Water Ministries
Anyone who knows me, this is just not right. Help is needed here.I'm glad this story came out. Kids are my cause.
Thank you Kaitlin! Me too!
Are you somehow connected with this girl?
Cause of a friend.
You are my kind, talented, beautiful and brave "GREAT" niece. I love you so much. No judge knowing all the FACTS would give custody to anyone other than your mother. Stay strong. Know that your uncle, cousins and I are always here for you.
Thank you Susie
Bryanna Lynn Tell the judge EVERYTHING!!!!! Since you are old enough, the judge may ask you who you want to live with. So there may be an out. Tell the judge everything this man has done to you and your mother.
There is not an age here that the judge will listen to the child. It is up to the judge and this one doesn't care to speak to me. I would love to tell th judge everything. I am not afraid to testify against him but they have to let me and this judge won't. If I thought there was a chance for me to talk sense to the judge, well, I wouldn't have needed this petition. Thank you for commenting though, because I know in most states the kids can decide or at least get input but Florida isn't...

This is why a good parent relocates from Florida without permission when there is a history of abuse. The courts are KNOW for protecting abusers and not the innocent children. Very sad and we need to stand up for these children . Go to www.factscourtwatch.org and Lawless America.
You are absolutely right! They do not want to hear from the children and any form of abuse is not taken seriously. abusers have much more rights. See www.factscourtwatch.org
Dear Hevanly Father Will not let this happen to you we are steeping in, thsi is an outrage, We will stop this I promise you, We are on it!
Thank you for helping me!! Please so something, ANYTHING you can!!
Please friend me sweetie. I will try to help you.
I have and I believe she has too. I will ask her to be sure!!!
Can humans even be sold in America?
See reply to Alec Retros and research. If you think just because this is America, there isn't human trafficking, you are wrong.
O___o Sorry bro, didn't mean to get your knickers in a twist.
She isn't like literally being sold, it's like a fine or a lawsuit type thing :3
Ooooh XD Well I made my comment before I actually read the article :P Thanks for explaining Sara ;D
I posted to a comment you made in response to my original post, but I want to increase the odds you will actually see this because I think it's an interesting idea:
Basically, when you turn 16 (and I don't know how far away that is for you...hopefully soon), with your mother's permission, you can get married, which makes you emancipated, which makes you out of the court's jurisdiction. It's...
Basically, when you turn 16 (and I don't know how far away that is for you...hopefully soon), with your mother's permission, you can get married, which makes you emancipated, which makes you out of the court's jurisdiction. It's a crazy idea, I know, and as the article points out it's dicey for your mother, but it could work. Ideally it would happen before a ruling was made so it would be harder to hold your mother in contempt.
If your mother maintains partial custody you can still do this even if the decision goes badly for you. I don't think you need both parents...just one.
But as always, seek legal counsel...this is a crazy idea and I know little about law.
I sent you a friend request, I'm not sure if I can help beyond brain-storming (which I'm happy to do) but I can plug you into more groups where people possibly could.
I will be 15 in December. We don't have that kind of time. Thanks for trying though.
You could do it after the decision if things go badly.
Do you mean 16 in December?
Will your Mom maintain partial custody or is she in danger of losing all of it?
I am 14 now, will be 15 in December.
We don't even know where he lives. His job travels. The way the laws are in FL, if he wins, he will leave with me and I will not see my mom again until I turn 18, if he lets me live that long, which I doubt.
OK, let's address the worst case scenario then. Your best bet will be to prove abuse as soon as it happens, in today's world this should be easy. Pin-hole cameras are dirt cheap, recording devices can be run for days non-stop. You have options.
If he is a drug user you can maybe get him declared unfit if the action is caught on camera. There are ways of addressing this outside the initial court decision.
As I have said, we do not know where he is to plant cameras or recording devices. Thank you though.
I would encourage the authorities to investigate this case carefully. The girl deserves a voice (the primary voice) in her own future; take her somewhere she can speak freely, confidentially without outside influence. Find out the truth of the matter, make sure she wrote this petition freely, and if she did, act on her wishes. Children are abused in so many ways in this country and being ripped out of a loving parent's arms and forced to a hostile environment, is tragically, one of the more common forms.
I have had to go see counselors, now two of them. Both have said I speak my own mind. My opinion of him is mine and not the mirror of my mom's. The first counselor I was forced to see, I have been seeing for 2 years now, only because she is part of my family now, saw this petition and knows I wrote it.
This is going to sound crazy Bryanna Lynn, but there is a way out if you can drag your feet until you are 16. I don't know if this is doable or not for you, and it could get your mother in trouble but consider this approach:
If you are married you are outside the jurisdiction of the court, if I'm not mistaken. I am no lawyer, but if things are as bad as they sound and people know about it, maybe you...
If you are married you are outside the jurisdiction of the court, if I'm not mistaken. I am no lawyer, but if things are as bad as they sound and people know about it, maybe you can find somebody to do this with you in order to dodge the legal bullet.
Of course, go find real legal counsel...but it's just an idea, a crazy idea.
Another thought: Find a safe place near your potential new location, after the first time he is abusive you could wait until he no longer suspects retaliation and sneak away and call the police. Pre-planning for the worst is going to be important in this scenario, you don't want to be trapped. Find people that can protect you, a place you can safely call the police in a case of abuse.
I don't know, maybe these aren't all good ideas--but I'm brainstorming. It's the only way I know to help!
This is happening all over Florida, especially the Palm Beach Garden's 15th judicial Court. these children need help!
Thank you Mr. Windsor. Hoping to meet you in St. Augustine!!
Lawless America definitely NEEDS to go to Florida! The children are in danger and the Family courts do NOT protect them from abusers!
Send complaints to the Judicial Qualifications Commission. They can only ignore complaints for so long.
Bryanna, you must contact the state child protective services yourself and request help. Custody battles are nasty, do not be a pawn, take yourself off the board.
I will not contact them because the only person that would hurt is the only one fighting to protect me - my mom. She is not using me as a pawn. The legal system is letting him continue to abuse my mom . It's like they are encouraging it. Contacting them will not help me, especially in Florida!!!! I appreciate the suggestion but we are talking about the worst of the worst in the country and it just takes reading a few comments to see that. I wish it was as simple as "taking myself off...

I wish it was as simple as "taking myself off the board" but it isn't in a states where minors have NO RIGHTS. The only person USING me is my mom's ex-husband because the court is letting him do it to hurt my mom. If it were as simple as you suggest, I wouldn't have felt the need to start this petition. Thanks for trying!!
