Investigative Reporter Digs into Family Court Damages
News Reporter Nick Lulli joined Pro Advocate Radio to discuss the tribulations seen and heard in the Augusta Judicial District, specifically found in Superior Court cases involving family law matters.
WFXG Fox 54 and Nick Lulli aired a series of news reports about troubling professional conduct, judicial bias and error, and damages faced by families and children.
Child Custody, Divorce and parenting conflict have caused a large public outcry over prolonged litigation and damages ranging from children being taken from good parents, children being left in unsafe environments with DFCS reports ignored, to property being wrongfully taken – even stolen – from parties, and including wrongful incarceration of parents who could have been exonerated if the court had just allowed the evidence and testimony in. The trend is for key evidence and testimony to be blocked and suppressed when it is available and needed to either exonerate an innocent party or to hold a true offender / perpetrator of a crime accountable. This includes cases allowing child molesters to take custody from a safe and stable parent. This type of misconduct is common in family court, and as a reporter Nick was shocked to see how blatant the illegal and unethical activity is and that it is virtually impossible for anyone to obtain protection or to recover once they are targeted for loss and damages.
Augusta citizens are in dire straights, and reporter Nick Lulli did not hold back in describing what he’s been observing and reporting on. In Nick’s reports we see clear evidence of misconduct by certain Guardians ad Litem (GALs), psychologists who function as court-appointed “Custody Evaluators” and therapists to children and parents who are trapped in the system and given no choice but to comply – and to pay high fees – or else.
Ongoing litigation involves questions about the accuracy of transcripts and guardian ad litem billing records, so please follow Nick, Pro AdvocateRadio and My Advocate Center to stay up-to-date on these stories and on the outcome of reviewing and reporting on these cases.
Since the airing of this broadcast Nick Lulli has moved to another state but follows the progress – or lack of progress – in the handling of these issues by state and local authorities.
Nick’s work in Georgia is also used in this book to highlight how difficult it is to obtain transparency and how much more work is needed by professionals such as Nick and Mike Volpe.
There is still much work to do as many children and parents are being treated in the same improper and harmful manner, causing much desperation in this and other judicial districts. In Mike Volpe’s book he reveals the explicit details of a father’s sad story, one who was bullied by the dishonest professionals and troubled system until he took his own life. There are other fathers and mothers like him in Georgia (and elsewhere), so now that we know the severity of the treatment and what can happen we are asking the medical and psychological associations along with legal authorities to investigate and to take these matters seriously.
