I wonder how many lives Sue Mayo, James Paulsen, the Contra Costa Family Court Services have decimated?
Yes. People are wounded coming through their doors. But to harm the least of these looms on their souls. A couple unfortunate individuals who have found themselves, unwittingly, inside the dark world of Sue Mayo, James Paulson and their elk, have contacted me. I’ve penned a recap for their use and will include it here.
I’ve not seen my daughter since she was 15 years old. She’s now over 20. Her 3 older brothers have not seen her in as many years.
The single line of demarcation was when my daughter told her father that she wanted to live with me and visit him. That was the shot heard around the world as he stormed out of the house slamming the front door and sending her in tears to her room that night. Then his tantrum was given unfettered flight by Contra Costa Family Court system (Sue Mayo, James Paulsen, Trevor White, et al).
My ex-husband (name withheld), began with a fabricated TRO that he dropped once he had emptied my home of all its contents and moved my daughter to an undisclosed location. The story ended with him moving with my daughter in tow to Las Vegas. This was all made possible by Sue Mayo’s report to the courts summarizing a meeting she had with (name withheld) and me lasting 50 minutes. This meeting was held via teleconference because (name withheld) is twice my size and had been physically threatening to me on multiple occasions (multiple police reports), so I requested separate rooms. Sue Mayo sat in the other room for the entire duration of the conference so she wasn’t even in the same room when she determined that I needed therapy to adjust to the loss of my daughter (as recommended by her report).
Who was the model parent, the one given full physical custody? My ex-husband suffered long bouts of unemployment, was socially reclusive and battled a child pornography addiction his whole adult life by his own account (I submitted to the courts, in his own hand writing, his admission of said).
Sue Mayo’s professional response to this: “He’s allowed to look at whatever he wants.” In retrospect, I can only ask why a man with such an addiction needed full, unabridged control of my daughter? Whatever the answer, Sue Mayo obliged him.
While holding full weight in the courts, Sue Mayo’s report lacked the most basic psychological principles of evaluation, suggested I fabricated the porn addiction issue even with a stack of evidence in the file she held including that (name withheld) was seeing a psychologist specializing in porn addiction for years and his own written admission. While Mayo never found it important enough to mention those items and more in her report, she did enable my ex-husband to consume the life of my daughter, in total.
No matter what happens, my daughter is damaged. My heart is forever missing a someone so vital that it’s nearly unspeakable. My daughter and I trusted the courts for fairness, for justice, for safety, in a moment of great need. What we got was Sue Mayo.
I received this letter in response to the above. It’s so good to know that the state relies on an unrelated, uninvolved party to watch over the mediators. (That was satire).
So–who does this chain of command protect? The kids? The parents? No. it protects the power-intoxicated social workers who are left completely ungoverned, unbridled and without any measure or test of veracity. What a racket.
