The Family Responsibility Office were about to seize not only my account but Angela's as well. They have that much power. It was a really scary time in our lives and we couldn't believe that Natasha had it in her to lie to the FRO and come after our accounts even though I have never missed a payment or left my kids without whatever they needed plus extras. My kids have been very fortunate to have the best of everything for the most part and lets face it, there are so many kids out there struggling just to get support for the basics. This was not the case with my kids, they were very fortunate!
It's a very serious issue and I feel for any parent that has to deal with a partner that has that much hate inside of them that they will take you to an organization that practices criminal bullying. Anyone can go to the FRO and claim ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY WANT and it will be enforced immediately without proof. The burden of proof is on the accused not the accuser. Is that not ridiculous?? I can attest to it because it happened to not only to me but my fiance at the time, because we were living together they could seize her house, car and savings, whatever they wanted unless we took the ex to court. Fortunately for us we had someone on the inside of the FRO that was extremely sympathetic to our cause and they did not enforce the accusations for the first six months to give us time to prepare for court. Angela was able to seek legal advice and had a very compelling case against Natasha and the FRO... she was a witness to everything that happened and saw how unfairly the kids and I were being treated in this whole mess.
The point is... something needs to change with the FRO and they must be accountable for their aggressive and despotic ruling. They do more harm than good!
Zach and Sophie, sorry I have posted these articles on your blog but it needs to be known how unfair the "system" can be when it comes to children and loving parents. There are many tragic and unjustified accusations against people who are just trying to do the best they can to be a good parents to their kids. It's important that you are informed of what has happened to us so that history will not repeat itself again!
I love you very much!
