Updated Epilogue to the book, Whistleblower in Paris, exposes the worst of parental alienation and silent epidemic in divorce and family courts

Dr. Leon Koziol

Published Author and Civil Rights Advocate

The ongoing ordeal of a judicial whistleblower has necessitated an update to the epilogue (concluding summary) of my recently published book, Whistleblower in Paris. If you have already purchased a copy, available at any Barnes and Noble store, Amazon or major bookseller on-line, this update should energize you to demand reform and accountability. It may also prevent you from becoming a victim of abuse, prevent undue fees and educate you to the realities of these courts. If you are learning of the book for the first time, this update might convince you to obtain a copy. It is a highly intriguing insight based on more than thirty years of litigation experience from a former trial and appellate attorney. That concluding summary is reproduced below:

Epilogue

As a civil rights attorney, I spent over two decades litigating for victims of race, gender, religion and ethnic discrimination. This included sexual harassment cases when they were unpopular. Many successful verdicts, monetary recoveries and precedent outcomes resulted. But my crusade for justice was not limited to minorities. It also extended to white landowners wrongfully threatened with eviction in the Oneida Indian land claim. Police brutality cases were similarly prosecuted for diverse victims, and I represented a public safety commissioner, police chief and rank and file officers whenever they were falsely accused.

In short, I was motivated to correct injustices to a point where I managed to have a billion-dollar casino compact invalidated on constitutional grounds in New York Supreme Court. The Las Vegas Sun reported it as a David-Goliath battle won by “the small Utica law firm that won the case.” [66] Among the defense firms was Cravath, Swaine and Moore, one of the most powerful in the nation. These achievements earned me praise from federal and state judges. The court transcripts, headline news and published opinions bear this out.

However, when I turned my energies to correcting human rights violations in divorce and family courts, I was viciously targeted. Suddenly, my arguments were incomprehensible, rambling and frivolous after twenty-three unblemished years. Even I underestimated the wrath of a corrupt regime bent on retaliation for my exposure of corruption involving a judge-lawyer gold mine. In numerous public statements, I cited federal funding abuses and lucrative custody battles that were inciting child murders, veteran suicides and needless parental conflict.

As a consequentially victimized parent, I was then forced to assume the mantra of a judicial whistleblower devoid of legal protection. The horrific ordeal here remains unprecedented in modern times. Among the practices I condemned in chapter two and an earlier book, Satan’s Docket, was the abuse of forensic custody evaluations. Then, in January, 2022, a blue-ribbon panel appointed by New York’s governor voted to eliminate these evaluations altogether. I made a presentation at a virtual public hearing sponsored by that panel asking for this very outcome, but like the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption (where I also appeared), it is doubtful that any genuine reform will be implemented. That is how powerful this gold mine has become.

So, in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, I sponsored a three-day event at our nation’s capital in May, 2019. Its goal was to elicit a Justice Department investigation and congressional hearings into the rampant human rights violations and federal funding abuses which continue to be ignored in these custody and support courts. We featured planning sessions, a lobby day among the offices of Congress, expert speakers at a hotel ballroom, a candlelight vigil in front of the U.S. Capitol, and a march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort from the White House to the Supreme Court.

All of this was accomplished without incident on a shoestring budget. At least four necessary permits were obtained together with regulatory compliance. Parents came from all parts of the country to register their peaceful protest against divorce and family court corruption. Yet not a single member of Congress responded. Then-president Donald Trump never materialized in front of the crowd assembled at the White House. Not even a representative was sent. The Justice Department weighed in with the same message that parental rights were not even on their radar. His successor, Joe Biden, proved oblivious to this crisis altogether.

So what is the lesson to be realized from all this? Peaceful protests to benefit parents, children and families of all races, religions and ethnic backgrounds will be ignored. They yield no respect whatsoever while the same politicians beg for our support on election day through such things as a voting rights bill. Therefore, it is time for those struggling against parental alienation, custody abuses and support debtor prisons to take matters into their own hands. Stay away from lawyers and these courts, set aside your custody and support disputes, and keep abreast of fellow victims who need your help. In this way at least, we might succeed in closing the gold mine.

Thinking back to all the craziness I endured for more than a decade under the yoke of this antiquated child custody regime, it still amazes me that not a single inquiry was made by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct regarding the many complaints I lodged. How could so much corruption become so buried? I am also amazed at all the physical restraint I practiced. Under our form of government, when the courts break down, victims can seek recourse outside the system. Nevertheless, my restraint led to poetic justice in so many ways.

Among the Sadistic Seven, Michael Daley is no longer a judge, having failed to garner enough support for re-election to the bench. His unpopularity was borne out later when he was defeated in an election for his old job as a local prosecutor. Last I heard he was representing traffic clients in Utica city court.

Judge Martha Walsh-Hood continues to serve as a family court judge as does her colleague Michele Pirro-Bailey in Syracuse. Judge Daniel King is still on the family court bench in Lowville, New York, but is up for re-election in 2022. At a minimum, my whistleblower testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption should be raised by any opposing candidate. The judge collusion inferred by King’s sudden removal of his gag order during my mandamus action in state Supreme Court remains a part of the public record. The manner in which this was all arranged behind closed doors demands a proper investigation.

Regardless, not one of these judges was elevated to higher office. This includes Judge James Eby who no longer presides over my case in Oswego, New York. In the aftermath of his uncorrected bias, innocent third parties were irreparably harmed. During his bombastic antics directed at me, he gave no concern for extended family similarly denied all contact with my daughters. He simply pressed on with his ego-driven agenda of retaliation to maintain favor among colleagues on and off the bench.  

To be sure, as director of the Parenting Rights Institute, I continue to receive complaints about him, one from a custodial mother regarding his knack for keeping the fees coming. He makes a mockery of this self-serving rationale of acting “in the best interests” of our children whose basic needs and college funds are raided. Entire families are bankrupted in the process while inciting domestic violence. An adversarial process rationalized by truth-seeking objectives cannot withstand the ultimate injury it yields when children are placed at needless risk compelling parents to resort to uncharacteristic extremes to protect them.

Similarly, Judge Gerald Popeo in Utica is also no longer presiding. He declined re-election prospects following my crusade against him in 2018. The judge censure which he blamed partly on me no doubt played a role in his decision. Magistrate Natalie Carraway continues her routine in support courts of Herkimer County, presumably charting a course for higher judgeship. Meanwhile, I continue to receive unsolicited praise from countless parents who publicly credit me for private changes in attitude among certain well-meaning jurists.

But it may also be said that poetic justice was served beyond the Sadistic Seven. My pedophile custody judge, Bryan Hedges, was permanently banned from the bench by the high court of New York, his colleague in Syracuse, Michael Hanuszczak, was forced to step down for sexual harassment of his court clerks, and Magistrate G. Stephen Getman lost an election for family court judge. His license suspension for mishandling client money caught up to him in that race.

My ex-secretary was jailed for crimes upon later victims. Her scheme with outsiders to orchestrate ethics issues in my office together with her tampering of mail and files resulted in the removal of a $220,000 mortgage claim on my home. It is unlikely that she will ever be hired for another law-related position given her felony convictions and our creation of a pretend lawyer website that features her. She would not have contemplated such crimes unless cloaked with some concealed protection while my office supervision was derailed by the family court battles.

My ex-wife was removed from the millionaire’s home in 2016 after wasting untold resources to pursue a needless parent alienation campaign bent on greed, revenge and jealousy. She too could not have succeeded without the undisclosed backing of many of the judges assigned to our case. But this particular campaign exceeded the worst I have come across. It can only be described as something hatched out of hell itself, a new form of evil. It harmed not only her children and their father but it devastated her own world. Yet she pressed on like the proverbial energizer bunny.

You would think that this “custodial parent” learned a profound lesson when her relocation scheme to that millionaire’s home was exposed. It featured the “gmai.com” concoction which she and the child attorney tried to pass as proper notice of a new residency. At a minimum, a parent has a right to know where his or her children are residing and with whom so that they can be better safeguarded. But here, despite undeniable proof of deceit upon the father, court and schools, this scheme was accorded no accountability in contrast with money obligations (child support) which were hounded to a point of arrest warrants, jail commitments and even death.

This one-sided persecution had no effect on her commitment to forever end all father-daughter relationships developed since birth. In August, 2021, the newly married Kelly Usherwood contrived an exit from the region on the day after my youngest daughter’s eighteenth birthday. She placed her home on the market and relocated both my girls to an undisclosed residence without even an identity of colleges they were now attending. By text message, she directed that any information was to be exchanged through the maternal grandmother nearby.

As fate would have it, this grandmother deceased only three months later. Meanwhile, circumstances showed that the e-mail exchanges made between father and his daughters were actually being made by the mother. This is how devious the alienator had become to achieve her objective of a family unit completely isolated from the biological father, one who had never even been found to be an unfit parent. It proved to be spite, greed and status which motivated Kelly Usherwood to pursue the unimaginable while the band played on in these corrupt family courts. 

None of this should surprise the reader given the content of earlier chapters and the growing horrors of parental alienation throughout the country. The unilateral directives of this deranged mother comported with no court order, but with the long confirmed systemic bias among numerous assigned judges in New York’s Fifth Judicial District, and the deference repeatedly given them by federal court, all courthouse doors had been closed in terms of any civil recourse. If Daniel King could invent a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” (wedding toast) as a reason to suspend child contact, how could I expect any sanity from the judges who replaced him?

The recent concealment of my daughters raises concerns that could warrant an amber alert given the bizarre conduct of the alienator-abductor. It occurred in the aftermath of my extended hospital stay only months earlier. Despite a life-threatening condition, no direct contact was received from my daughters. By the time the realities of brainwashing caught up to them, it would be too late to revisit countless precious moments captured in home videos and photos.

In the end, it begs the question: what kind of evil lurks in the body of Kelly Usherwood? The answer may lie in some sequel of American Greed or a psycho movie. Even my girls were not spared the karma behind their immoral disregard of dad during his hospital stay, the man who made their existence possible. Both daughters were forced to suffer through a pandemic which is continuing. Graduations, proms and other once-in-a-lifetime events were either canceled or subjected to highly diluting regulations.  

As for the ethics lawyers who helped facilitate this chaos, they were forced to resign after an investigation into falsified time sheets. Would-be clients continue to be denied qualified representation. Even after eleven years of license suspension, I continue to receive calls from victims who cannot secure basic legal advice. The system justified this by support obligations that cannot be satisfied without the licenses, resources and liberties that were seized.

This so-called disciplinary process was abused to achieve censorship, thereby making its perpetrators complicit in the resulting crimes upon humanity.  Despite all this, corruption was exposed on a vast scale after unprecedented numbers of jurists were removed from my originally uncontested divorce. Those removals helped alter the divorce culture in a positive way while exposing the underbelly of a court system hell-bent on revenues and profits. 

But I paid a high price. Out of law school in 1987, I was able to secure a restraining order on a $30 million high school project, [67] I won my first interstate divorce appeal two years later, [68] my name appears on two dedication plagues of the Utica city courthouse as an elected councilman and corporation counsel, I was a featured speaker regarding Native American land claims across upstate New York, and I won a $300,000 civil rights recovery against my local Sheriff which may have factored into the later antics. Other high-profile cases are cited at footnotes 7-11.

Today I am unable to get a family judge to order phone contact with my own daughters.  

In raw terms, you can kill a targeted person with a gun or accomplish the same outcome with a drawn-out process that chips away at your existence. Parent alienation is such a process. It is more than a psychological syndrome or human rights violation, it is a proven killer of victimized parents. Whether it be a suicide, terminal illness or some other brutal consequence, the needless separation of a loving parent from his or her children is simply unconscionable. And when forcing the victim to pay for the child abduction through support payments under penalty of a debtor prison, it becomes utterly barbaric. 

Judges are quick to overlook this reality as they routinely find breaches of various duties in personal injury cases to achieve million-dollar verdicts. But when greater breaches of ethical duties are presented regarding their own conduct, they cloak themselves with judicial immunity on the rationale that such liability would deter qualified candidates from seeking judgeships. Utter nonsense, most lawyers crave these prestigious titles, and a judge complying with job requirements has nothing to fear. If anything, this absolute immunity encourages misconduct while politically-appointed oversight commissions fail us time and again.

This ordeal warrants a Justice Department investigation and congressional inquiry. It would benefit countless moms, dads and families similarly situated. There are tremors of unrest throughout this country which are being ignored. Hardly a day goes by without some child murder, needless suicide or unpredictable homicide traced to these dysfunctional courts. What remains of a stable society is largely made possible by the free exercise of parental liberties and self-governance. It is my fervent hope, therefore, that a powerful movement emerges from my sacrifices that forces our government to pay attention to its own parents.

This literary work is by no means an indictment of our justice system or legal profession. However, it verifies in painstaking detail how a conscientious attorney, model parent and judicial whistleblower can be so ruthlessly punished for his crusade to deliver overdue reforms to our system of family court justice. The people rely on qualified insiders to alert them to corruption in our third branch of government. It accentuates the need for attorney whistleblower protection.

Finally, this book is directed against the divorce industry and the family court predators who are dragging justice down to hell, a people’s courthouse reduced to a giant profit center. All this corruption might compel another victim to resort to violence. But I was able to forbear it and achieve some justice in more constructive ways. My old friend, Sir Walter Scott, gave me sage advice in that regard:

For he that does good, having the unlimited power to do evil, deserves praise not only for the good he performs, but the evil he forbears

A tech park became its replacement which benefits faculty and students in a myriad of ways today. The former proposed school location could not have facilitated such benefits due to remoteness and land constraints.

Hope for Alienated Parents during the Holidays: Help victims by sharing the short video here

NOTE: The above video is reproduced in text below

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

My name is Leon Koziol, a parent advocate who practiced law in federal and state courts. I am also a parent victimized for my exposure of court corruption. As a result, my livelihood was destroyed and my precious daughters alienated from me.

I am therefore well positioned to address this phenomenon known as parental alienation, and I am here today to give hope to fellow victims. So stay with me, it’s worth your time.

This video may lead to parent-child reunions or, at the very least, prevent harm to families and future generations. It verifies that you are not alone in your struggles. Parent alienation is now a national crisis, and the courts that caused it require overhauls.

But it requires much more. We must unite to get our Justice Department to open a human rights investigation. Because federal funds deliver such outcomes, Congress must also step up with public hearings to study misappropriations. Child custody has become a pay-to-parent scandal as I will elaborate.

To that end I need your help to bring parental alienation to the forefront of national policy. All of us have a stake in this, whether or not a parent, because the injustices harm our extended families, health care systems, community interests, worker productivity, education and law enforcement.

Yes, parental alienation has reached crisis levels, but it is being ignored as part of a lucrative framework for adjudication which still infects our divorce and family courts. Judges there end parent-child relationships with little or no cause to serve the growing demands of a lawyer glut that has invaded our society.

There are now more than 300,000 lawyers in California and New York alone anxious to advance their fee interests. There is scant accountability for the greed they generate through needless conflict, and the resulting carnage is ripe for public outrage. But we have to channel that outrage to achieve overdue reforms.

To begin with, it should be no shock that any conscientious attorney who makes a stand against his profession will be targeted. My whistleblower activity elicited horrific retributions which I seriously underestimated. Their brazen nature can be explained by the gold mine I was threatening.

Despite my unblemished reputation and principled litigation for more than 23 years, I was deprived of my children, assets and income capacity while subjected to inflated support obligations to justify a jail term for violations. It left me alone to pursue recourse in creative ways including a stint in Paris, France.

With that behind me, I can now proceed with undivided loyalty to a joint mission because there is little else that can be done to scare me off. I will get to the hypocrisy of family judges shortly. But for now, let us look at those who facilitate parent alienation.

Despite being charged with a duty of dispensing justice, protecting our liberties and assuring equal treatment, there are too many judges violating that duty when they turn a blind eye to this crisis. But make no mistake, parent alienation is a legalized form of child abduction fueled by profits and revenues.   

If you’re a victim, you already know that these abductions are real. When your offspring are seized by your own government, a part of you goes with it. You then become isolated, dreading these festive holidays because of the pain they bring.

Like a solar eclipse, the lack of love or contact with your children darkens your spirits and may lead to dire reactions. Parent suicides, homicides and child murders are on the rise.

This carnage stems from an antiquated child custody system derived from a day when moms stayed home and dads worked. In contrast with shared parenting models, custody laws require parents to fight over their offspring for a winner-take-all award. It can become a brutal contest that pits loved ones against each other and their government, breeding new forms of evil.

Despite a professed concern, judges welcome these battles because they are rewarded by the number and size of support orders they issue. This comes in the way of federal grants that few know about under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.

We’re talking billions of dollars annually in revenues for the states and astronomical fees for service providers. Like the tobacco, drug and tech industries, you are merely their pawns, collateral damage to quench unmitigated greed. Sure, you can complain endlessly on social media to wanna-be lawyers with voo-doo advice, but no one with influence is paying attention.

So why aren’t these judges, lawyers and service providers being held accountable? Well for starters, you have to recall that judges are lawyers on the bench. Because they wear robes and enter tribunals with great fanfare does not eliminate that reality.

As for oversight, a single statewide commission that meets sporadically is routinely overwhelmed. Reports show that California and New York investigate only ten percent of complaints. It’s mostly window-dressing as the band plays on.

Beyond that, it would be a hypocrisy for judges to admonish their own, a blemish on high office. So let’s examine a much greater hypocrisy about that high office and its ethics.

My custody judge, Bryan Hedges, was banned from the bench after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five-year old niece. What sort of thought was he harboring while interrogating children in private chambers? I was fortunate to have him removed from my case before my girls could be traumatized.

His replacement, Michael Hanuszczak, was then exposed for sexual harassment of his court clerks. Yet another, Gerald Popeo, was censured for threats and racist remarks from the bench. A record forty trial jurists were removed from my originally uncontested divorce.

Although much of this can be explained by proper self-recusals, others abused office to discredit my public message. Mine is only one case. How can you know if your judge is taking a bribe to fix a custody case as Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo were in New York? Both were apprehended by chance and convicted.

Or how about Michigan Judge Wade McCree who impregnated a litigant in chambers. He was exposed only because he was a married man. The adversary in that case then sought recourse but was denied on grounds of judicial immunity. It begs the question: Is judge adultery in court a protected act? Seriously?

Then there’s the kids for cash scandal in Pennsylvania and the list goes on. But now let’s turn to the victims. Thomas Ball, a father and veteran, burned himself alive on the steps of a court to protest extended separations from his child. No major outcry, no national exposure. They merely swept his ashes into a sewer.

Joe Longo, a police investigator exited support court only to secure his own justice by committing a murder-suicide at the former marital home using a common kitchen knife. It left four children without parents and a permanent end to child support.

Walter Scott could no longer endure recurring terms in a debtor prison, so it was no surprise that he ran unarmed from a support warrant at a traffic stop. But it was a shock when the cop gave chase and elected to shoot his target dead five times in the back.

That cop is now doing time in a federal prison. Police officers should be doing police work. Instead, they are being exploited as debt collectors. It raises another question of whether government is now killing for money. Without a concealed by-stander and video, this cop would have gotten away with his false reports.

Only last month, Chad Read was also shot dead unarmed by the boyfriend of his son’s mother. That killer interrupted an argument between the parents during a child exchange at her home. Such arguments occur every day across the country.

But now, picking up your children can become a scene from the wild west as the killer’s lawyer claims self-defense under a no-retreat law in Texas. Is it any wonder that many parents today are walking away from their responsibilities, yet another form of alienation? A human being can handle only so much court insanity only to be blamed for it with costly psychiatric exams.  

And how about the children who are supposedly being protected by those courts? Two-year old, Gabriella Boyd, was murdered by her mother in 2018 rather than surrender to a custody change order. She is now serving a life sentence.

Eight-year old, Thomas Valva, died of hypothermia due to the abuse of his NYPD father last year, and two-year old, Kyra Franchetti, was victim of a murder-suicide by her father who burned down their home. A news reporter disclosed that more than 700 deaths are not publicized by child protection agencies.

This holiday season, countless moms and dads will be denied contact with their little ones. Meanwhile parent alienators will be working overtime to brainwash them to hate the other parent. Their motivations are boundless and often psychotic.

Here at my websites, You-Tube channel, publications and reform events around the country, you can obtain highly qualified options for taking action to stop the carnage. Judges, lawyers and politicians only respond to numbers and influence. 

First, visit my personal site, Leon Koziol.com for updates and valuable information. There is no legal fee for this. You can also subscribe to my talk program, Leon’s Library, on YouTube.

Second, log on to the Parenting Rights Institute website. The programs there focus on mediation, self-help and strategies to keep you out of these courts. It may save you thousands in fees.

Third, in dire matters, contact the Citizen Commission Against Corruption, a nonprofit doing the job of oversight agencies. Precedent litigation is among our weapons. Your donations are tax deductible, without which we cannot fight special interests.

Fourth, my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris, provides education and intrigue. It can be obtained at any Barnes and Noble store, Amazon or major bookseller on-line.

Fifth, I have published a citizen petition against parent alienation on Change.org. All you have to do is sign it, short and simple.  

Finally, you can join any of the reform events I sponsor around the country. They include a three-day gathering known as the Parent March on Washington which I hope to repeat.

In 2019, it featured a lobby day in Congress, expert speakers at a hotel ballroom, a march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort, and a candlelight vigil for the lives lost in these matters. Currently a networking program, Amber Appeal, is underway to provide information regarding absentee children.        

Spread this holiday message, a genuine gift for countless victims. You can also contact me directly at (315) 796-4000.

Thank you. Merry Christmas and God Bless!

Just Another Suicide Note? Read it here and join our Parent March for a Federal Investigation of Family Court Suicides.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

As we continue to grow numbers for our Parent March on Washington set for May 3rd (now a three day event), we are woefully short of the numbers needed to get the attention our cause deserves, that of obtaining a federal investigation into the billions of dollars in aid being abused in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

While a fine group of dedicated Americans has been joining our weekly conference calls, vast numbers of victims everywhere are not answering our call for solidarity and action. Countless complainers continue to keyboard from the comfort of their homes to the choir, to no one who cares about their war stories, or to no one who can do anything about it anyway.

As both an attorney for 23 years and victimized parent for another ten, I have documented the corruption in these courts, concluding overwhelmingly that we have an epidemic on our hands. The reason it is not being publicized is because parents and children have become a trillion dollar industry. There is no parent protection league, watch dog or union looking out for us unlike the powerful bar associations and special interests protecting their gold mine.

Think of it as the tobacco or chemical industries which lied to the public for decades before much belated accountability was finally wrestled from Congress. Suicides are among the most horrific consequence of this antiquated and highly lucrative custody system. It must be reformed into a progressive shared parenting model of child rearing.

When the suicide note below was sent to me by one of our March organizers, I could not bear to read all of it, so so sad! There are countless like them, i.e. 22 veterans committing suicide every day, visit Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen .org. (short professional video of a veteran who takes his life in an empty home, felony child support summons on his front door, after returning from duty in Iraq).

Such suicides are a common final solution to parental alienation which mindless lawyers (and lawyers on the bench) cause every day without compassion or concern. They must finally be investigated on grounds of human rights violations alone! One father, Thomas Ball, burned himself alive in front of a family court in Keene, New Hampshire to protest corruption and alienation. Can you even imagine what it took for this Vietnam veteran to do this, how much pain he had to endure?

Thomas Ball also left a suicide note, but it was more of a manifesto detailing how to make Molotov cocktails for use against family court buildings. That was eight years ago when they simply washed his ashes into a sewer. Maybe I’ve lost everything trying to bring reform and attention to this epidemic, but I know I have personally saves many lives and prevented such horrific outcomes.

My upcoming report to Congress does not begin to match the cost and publicity of the Mueller Report, but it has far greater relevance to every-day society, where government attention must be shifted after all the political hoopla subsides. It has been updated and will be made available soon for those serious about joining us in Washington. Victims generating their own summaries will be included with it in a lobby packet hand-delivered to every member of Congress.

This is an unfunded, grass-roots initiative. For that reason and the sake of parents, grandparents, children and families everywhere, make your donation today, get on the phones, spread the word and make plans to join us on May 3, 2019.

A Father’s Suicide Note

Utterly defeated
by the family court system,
Christopher Mackney, 45, 
committed suicide
Dec 29, 2013 in Washington DC.

The love that my daughter and I shared was truly special. She is a such a sweet, kind and gentle spirit. I am so sorry that I will not be there to see her grow into a beautiful woman. It absolutely crushed me to not be in her life over the last three years. I worked very hard as a father to build her confidence and self-esteem. She is smart, funny and considerate, but she didn’t know it yet. I pray that she realizes her strengths and her confidence in herself will continue to grow. I love you dearly, Lily.

My son Jack was just entering Kindergarten, when I lost access to him. He is gregarious, outgoing and a great athlete. He is smart and fearless. He could have just as much fun by himself as he could with other kids. Even the older boys in our neighbourhood wanted to play with Jack. It absolutely breaks my heart that I will not be able to help him grow into a man. I love you to, Jack. I miss you both so much.

My identity was taken from me, as result of this process. When it began, I was a commercial real estate broker with CB Richard Ellis. I lived by the Golden rule and made a living by bringing parties together and finding the common ground. My reputation as a broker was built on my honesty and integrity. When it ended, I was broke, homeless, unemployed and had no visitation with my own children. 

I had no confidence and was paralyzed with fear that I would be going to jail whenever my ex-wife wanted. Nothing I could say or do would stop it. This is what being to death or ‘targeted’ by a psychopath looks like. This is the outcome. I didn’t somehow change into a ‘high-conflict’ person or lose my ability to steer clear of the law. I’ve had never been arrested, depressed, homeless or suicidal before this process. The stress and pressure applied to me was deliberate and nothing I could do or say would get me any relief. Nothing I or my attorneys said to my ex-wife’s attorney or to the Court made any difference. Truth, facts, evidence or even the best interest of my children had no affect on the outcome.

The family court system is broken, but from my experience, it is not the laws, its the lawyers. They feed off of the conflict. They are not hired to reduce conflict or protect the best interest of children, which is why third parties need to be involved. It should be mandatory for children to have a guardian ad litem, with extensive training in abuse and aggression. 

It is absolutely shameful that the Fairfax County Court did nothing to intervene or understand the ongoing conflict. Judge Randy Bellows also used the Children as punishment, by withholding access for failing to fax a receipt. The entire conflict centered around the denial of access to the children, it was inconceivable to me that he would use children like this. This is exactly what my ex-wife was doing and now Judge Bellows was doing it for her.

To all my family, friends and the people that supported me through this process, I am so sorry. I know my reactions and behavior throughout this process did not always make sense. None of this made sense to me either. I had no help and the only suggestion I got from my attorneys was to remain silent. 

At first, I did what I was told, remained silent and listened to my attorneys. Then after I had given my ex-wife full custody to try and appease her, I learned about Psychopathy and emailed Dr. Samenow about my concerns and asked him for help. Of course, I was ignored. As the conflict continued, I was forced to defend myself. When that didn’t work, I thought I could get the help I needed by speaking out. There is no right or wrong way to defend yourself from abuse. Naively, I thought that abuse was abuse and it would be recognized and something would be done. I thought speaking out would end the abuse or at least get them to back off. It didn’t. When no one did anything they were emboldened.

I took my own life because I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing I could do or say to end the abuse. Every time I got up off my knees, I would get knocked back down. They were not going to let me be the father I wanted to be to my children. People may think I am a coward for giving up on my children, but I didn’t see how I was going to heal from this. I have no money for an attorney, therapy or medication. I have lost four jobs because of this process. I was going to be at their mercy for the rest of my life and they had shown me none. 

Being alienated, legally abused, emotionally abused, isolated and financially ruined are all a recipe for suicide. I wish I were stronger to keep going, but the emotional pain and fear of going to court and jail [because of exorbitant child support] became overwhelming. I became paralyzed with fear. I couldn’t flee and I could not fight. I was never going to be allowed to heal or recover. I wish I were better at articulating the psychological and emotional trauma I experienced.

I could fill a book with all the lies and mysterious rulings of the Court. Never have I experienced this kind of pain. I asked for help, but good men did nothing and evil prevailed. All I wanted was a Guardian Ad Litem for my children. Any third party would have been easily been able to confirm or refute all of my allegations, which is why none was ever appointed to protect the children or reduce the conflict.

Abuse is about power and control. Stand up for the abused and speak out. If someone speaks out about abuse, believe them.

Please teach my children empathy and about emotional invalidation and ‘gas-lighting’ or they may end up like me.

God have mercy on my soul.

Agenda for the May 3rd Parent March on Washington, Now a Three-Day Event

 

PARENT  MARCH  ON  WASHINGTON

When and where:

May 3, 2019, March begins 1pm at the White House and it concludes at the Supreme Court

What is its purpose?

We are asking our Justice Department to investigate corruption in our domestic relations courts and Congress to open public hearings on the horrific cases that are erupting there. Justifications for federal involvement include widespread abuses of Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. Federal funds to state courts are based on the size and number of support orders they issue. Such funding provides incentives for lawyers and judges to manufacture parental conflict for revenues and fees. This unchecked abuse has led to a silent epidemic in society. 

States abuse billions of dollars in federal money through protracted litigation and custody mandates which preclude shared parenting alternatives. A trillion-dollar industry has resulted to benefit lawyers, psychiatrists, drug companies and countless others to the demise of families and children. Veteran suicides, addictions and other harmful effects are actually being financed and incentivized by federal money. 

Highly protected and suppressed from public knowledge, these abuses include Medicaid fraud, aggravated violence, overbilling practices, parental alienation and a fatherless society contrary to the purported “best interests of the child.” This March seeks to bring universal awareness to an epidemic that is harming the moral fiber, constitutional fabric and productivity of an entire nation.

Who is sponsoring it?

The March is being promoted principally by the Parenting Rights Institute as an umbrella sponsor with others assisting. PRI is a judicial watch and parent advocacy organization founded by Dr. Leon Koziol in 2010. It has conducted parent conventions, lobbying initiatives and traveled the country assisting parents. It has offered publishing services, self-representation and strategy programs, video documentaries and professional referrals for parents.

The PRI relies on donations and purchases but has remained grossly underfunded. That is why we are relying on individuals and groups to help us organize this March as a grass roots event. The March seeks to bring together victims from all states to finally be heard in a place where true reform can happen.

Related Three-Day Events:

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 – This three-day event begins with an American Parent (vehicle) Caravan on the morning of May 1, 2019. It is designed to give advance notice of our May 2nd (Lobby Initiative) and May 3rd (March). We want our leaders in Washington to shift focus from illegal immigrant parents separated from their children to American parents separated or alienated from their children here in our own country. One such caravan is set to begin at 10 am in Liberty Park, Jersey City and end mid-afternoon at Veterans Memorial in Washington. Through vehicle signage, we hope to attract interstate highway and media notice.

Thursday, May 2, 2019 – A lobbying day on the eve of this March seeks to impact our nation’s leaders. An action plan will be confirmed, 8 a.m. at the Harrington Hotel, 436 11th Street NW, Washington D.C. located ideally between the White House and Capitol. The PRI has used this hotel for lobbying events including a news conference at the Supreme Court to announce the docketing of precedent seeking cases.

Groups with lobby packets will head to both houses of Congress with the hope that every elected member is notified at their offices. By our experience, these representatives pay little or no attention to their constituents unless backed by a high-profile special interest group. This will change when they see the seriousness of our message the next day.

How it originated:

The Parent March was conceived by Dr. Leon Koziol, a parent rights advocate who practiced law for more than two decades without blemish. He successfully challenged gag orders, racist and sexist practices, and won substantial awards in federal and state courts. He obtained judgment invalidating the largest casino compact in New York. 

Dr. Koziol was featured on 60 Minutes, New York Times and CNN. When he took a stand against court corruption, a horrific agenda of retaliation followed causing an indefinite suspension of his law licenses and child contact. That 12-year agenda was executed through criminal means without accountability. Like Edward Snowden, he blew the whistle on corrupt practices and helped expose misconduct such as his custody judge removed from the bench for sexual abuse of the judge’s handicapped, five-year old niece.

What is the agenda for the March?

Friday, May 3, 2019 – The White House

After a morning review session with key organizers at the hotel, marchers will begin assembling at President’s Park in front of the White House. A permit is required for events having more than 25 participants, and it will be obtained upon confirmation of a worthy number. Here we will be calling upon the president and Justice Department to open an investigation of our nation’s family courts. We will also request a National Shared Parenting Bill.

At 1 pm, the March proceeds along Pennsylvania Avenue (or the National Mall depending on logistics) to Upper Senate Park where a stop will be made to request congressional hearings regarding the abuses of Title IV-D funding and family court corruption. Such abuses continue to yield a fatherless America through debtor prisons and draconian enforcement practices. The March will then resume to the Supreme Court behind the Capitol Building.

Here we will offer victims an opportunity to present their individual cases and pleas for an end to parental alienation caused by judges and lawyers in these courts. At 7 pm, we will end the day on the opposite (front) side of the Capitol with a candlelight vigil for suicide and alienation victims.

Important:  The subjects and itinerary are not cast in stone. We anticipate input and modifications from volunteers as they join the event. However, we do not wish to jeopardize our effectiveness with a multitude of “beefs” that dilute our main message, that of ending corruption in these courts.

Such dilution became the downfall of the Women’s March on Washington the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Many participating groups were not only at odds with one another, protesters became unruly and vulgar with their messages. In the end, it was little more than a mob complaint about a citizen’s sexist remarks on a private jet.

Our March is not an attack upon elected leaders, Democrat or Republican, and it will not be exploited for a fringe purpose. Dr. Leon Koziol has advised many successful protest organizers without incident. One such protest was featured on 60 Minutes leading to a Supreme Court decision which overruled the one being targeted. Here we hope to get the same Court to hear a case that addresses overbroad judge immunities and an antiquated custody system.

Why should I come?

Your involvement may change history. We parents love our children, but they are being exploited for money, turned against us, and taught to disrespect other authority figures. We have to stand up for our parental rights which the Supreme Court has declared to be “the oldest liberty interest protected by the Constitution.” That liberty is being eroded with each passing day because parents lack an effective watch dog in Washington.

In this March, numbers are our strength. You mean something to us. In your last days on earth, you will know that you once were a part of something profound, something they may recognize for generations to come. It will be a tribute to those who gave up their lives so we could exercise these rights. Against that sacrifice, how can you stay home to save a few hundred dollars?

You need to make plans now. The Harrington Hotel is already filled to capacity, but there is lodging throughout the beltway accessible by public transportation. The huge edifices, monuments and stately grounds in our nation’s capital are your property, the people’s domain. Take advantage of it. Train and air fares can be very low if obtained in advance with free cancellations as close as two days prior to arrival. With a will, there’s a way.

We need your help and contributions now. A Go-Fund Me page has been established at www.leonkoziol.com and details are regularly updated there. You can make a donation by hitting any part of the link below. You can also call us on the PRI office phone at (315) 380-3420.

Welcome to our family!

Parents Backing Trump Because They Cannot Surrender Their Children To Hillary’s Socialist Village

donald-trump-family-1-e1450202853354
Nuclear family versus Hillary’s nuclear “Village” for child rearing: Get out and vote or accept the consequences.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Most Americans don’t see it yet, but our children are gradually being taken from us through a socialist movement known as the New World Order. Since the early nineties it has been championed by the Clinton Crime Family and depicted in shocking detail by Hillary in her book It Takes A Village. The text is filled with socialist propaganda but reduced to its essentials, Hillary declares that the state is better equipped to raise our children.

Evidence of this trend is everywhere, from state funded day care centers to an antiquated family court system where moms and dads are required to war against one another to obtain custody and support “awards.” This barbaric process does two things to advance Hillary’s New World Village: 1) It rewards her lawyer friends and the predators who incite these needless wars, and 2) It routinely brings out the worst in parents who love their children the most. Otherwise they would simply surrender their rights.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how this process advances New World propaganda. Mainstream media focuses on salacious divorces of famous people as opposed to reform efforts of secondary and social media like Leon Koziol.com or Parenting Rights Institute. The state is thereby able to publicly distinguish itself as the savior of children harmed by warring parents increasingly made subject to court controls and an inverted order of child rearing that defies natural laws successfully observed since creation itself.

In numerous postings, publications, and court filings, I have become a modern day Paul Revere. I have supported my predictions and been proven correct time and again despite an unprecedented witch hunt to discredit the public message. Indeed even my adversaries agree with it, veteran jurists such as Family Judge Dennis Duggan who declared the custody system to be antiquated and horrific in its destruction of workable parent-child relationships. See Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (2001) at fn 1 where he condemns use of the offensive terms “custody” and “visitation.”

Shared parenting is the constitutionally preferred model but it threatens Hillary’s Village and the profits of her lawyer friends. The voting public remains duped by Clinton’s ultimate lie because she is supported by the billionaire elite which has contrived this New World Order. But a massive undertow has been at work as the carnage peaks to a point of violence in our streets, schools and courts. Parents are wising up to reality and uniting behind Donald Trump to dissolve Hillary’s Village. After all, Donald Trump did not create chaos, chaos created Donald Trump. Who else anywhere can truly reform all branches of government?

Time will tell when the voting booths close tomorrow. It’s an epic election defined by “wars” and personal attacks, it’s Trump’s family v Hillary’s Village; Trump’s locker room conduct as a private citizen vs Hillary’s national security risks as a public official; America First vs New World Order; “Secondary” and “Social” media vs “Mainstream” and “Liberal media;” Populist liberty vs Establishment control; a successful billionaire who exploited our tax laws vs a crooked politician who committed crimes with elite immunity; FBI vs Loretta Lynch; Genuine Law and Order vs Terrorist Infiltrators and Family Predators; the “War on Women” vs the “War on America.

God Bless America, its parents, our families and children !

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol Meets Al Sharpton at Site of Walter Scott Shooting.

Leon Koziol, J.D. and the Rev. Al Sharpton
Leon Koziol, J.D. and the Rev. Al Sharpton

Administrator’s note: Leon has been in Charleston, South Carolina seeking support for family court reform in light of the police shooting of an unarmed father fleeing an arrest for a child support warrant. We’ve shown you the video taken of this father shot five times in the back with no concern for his condition afterward. Leon traces the route of the same video taker at a vigil held today at the site of Walter Scott’s murder. The North Charleston police officer is in jail on murder charges. Here is what Leon reports from the vigil site.

I had an opportunity to chat with Al Sharpton today at the site of Walter Scott’s murder here in North Charleston. It was during a vigil ceremony with everything about the place coming across very surreal.

I have reviewed this travesty in my mind with horror, finding it hard to grasp that it was all caused by a child support warrant. Our government is actually killing fathers now for money. Of course we know that this cop who shot Walter Scott had to be deranged, but the fact is, that’s what happened here. Without the warrant, this killing would not have occurred.

I focused on the exact spot where Walter Scott fell in that video which continues to haunt me as a father myself. A collection of flowers marks the spot which might as well be sacred ground today. It should move all fathers to action. We cannot allow greed and money to be a cause for police force and debtor prisons. A planned rally on June 19th (fatherless day) at the Supreme Court should be everyone’s focus to secure respect and fair treatment in our family courts.

I retraced the route of this father fleeing yet another stint in prison for being a support debtor. I struggled with the sounds of eight gun shots, five which landed in the back and one through the heart. I examined the distance between the officer and the location where the victim fell. I recalled how the cop casually walked over and hand-cuffed the debtor as he took his final breath. The family court warrant had now been executed!

On the other side of a worn-out fence, I placed myself in the shoes of the video taker. I was amazed at how he had to be in the right place and the right time for justice to be served. Fortunately he had the courage and presence of mind to complete his vital mission under a profound fear of being shot himself.

Gradually the crowd and camera crews dissipated. I was among the last to leave when I noted a biker gang in an adjacent lot. Out of respect for the attendees, they waited patiently and largely unnoticed until the place was empty. Then they formed a loud circular procession in order to make their own statement, concluding with a united linear back-up to the vicinity where the cop committed his crime. I felt a bit like the video taker when I captured this scene from the other side of the fence.

King’s Chronicles: Are Judges Above The Law When It Comes To Public Criticism?

IMG_1560

Part Four: Political Espionage May Be Occurring in Our Third Branch of Government.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

In recent posts here at Leon Koziol.com, we told you about a former Chief Justice of New York’s court system who directed paid staff in his chambers to target a lawyer who was getting too close to his mistress in order to harm his law license. It was all infected by politics, and the judge, Sol Wachtler, was eventually sent to prison on stalking, extortion and false reporting charges.

King’s Chronicles is a long overdue expose on court corruption with a viral following around the country and places as far away as Australia and Argentina. It is dedicated to a family court judge, Daniel King, of Lowville, New York whose misconduct is being overlooked due to a mission for censoring my public criticisms and complaints, rights protected by our Constitution and principles of any free society. King’s antics could easily be among those practiced elsewhere, and it is therefore crucial to expose them wherever they may be found.

Some of our followers have pointed out that the Sol Wachtler debacle was isolated and that political conspiracies among judges and their accomplices are hard to prove. Moreover, judges are given special immunities from civil rights violations. Indeed my own cases have suffered from such defenses asserted to dismiss otherwise valid constitutional claims. The public is then given the false impression that the judges have committed no wrongs and that the accusations have no merit. It is a green light for continuing misconduct.

With this backdrop we bring you the case of Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010), a federal appeals court decision which rejected judicial immunity for two judges and clerk accomplices in a civil rights case here in Syracuse brought by a chief court clerk as a victim of their “political espionage” tactics. The case was ultimately settled against the judges for $600,000.00.

One of the judges, Brian Hedges, was assigned to my custody case prior to being disqualified on my motion and later removed from the family court altogether for admitting to sexual misconduct upon his handicapped five year old niece. The other, James Tormey, is still on the bench and assigning cases like my custody matters to Daniel King.

Much like the plaintiff in the Morin case, I am being sent to remote court locations instead of my home county. Now, as promised, we bring you a very brief rendition of the misconduct of Judge King which will become part of a published book. It occurred at a 2014 custody hearing and may reflect similar experiences of victimized families all across the country.

For background, Dan King conducted a so-called “mini-hearing” in November, 2013 without proper notice to enforce his needless supervisory authority over my children. In substance, he was reacting to my website criticisms and September testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption which disclosed fictional college degrees being used to impute income against me for child support purposes (we’re not making this up).

With no competent evidence of any parenting deficiencies, Dan King concocted one after the fact which he called “alcohol related gestures.” He based it on a toast to my niece at a wedding reception (we’re not making that up either). I promptly filed an appeal and secured a higher court restraint upon the bizarre decision which was found to be “structurally flawed” and without proper support.

However I later learned from King’s court clerk that no record had been made of the mini-hearing, hence we could not show the clear abuse before any higher court or misconduct authority. Worse yet, King endeavored to conform the 2014 hearing record to justify his demented orders. His errors are too numerous to cite here, but in salient part, this is how he did it.

At the later properly noticed hearing, Dan King exhibited vindictive behavior warranting his disqualification or removal from the bench. Angered over the higher court order and public criticisms, he maliciously facilitated narrative testimony from a scorned ex-spouse to manufacture a false record. This was needed to whitewash his earlier misconduct and errors.

I logically objected to the utterly irrelevant and incompetent harangue of the ex-spouse acting alone without witness, lawyer or corroboration. She needed no attorney because the judge was acting effectively as her advocate. Two of my five  early objections  were granted when, suddenly, Dan King became unglued and enraged without cause. He threatened to have me removed from the court if I made another objection.

I was consequently forced to endure a long dissertation of fraudulent testimony having no factual support so that King could have a (false) record to support his punitive design. When the sadistic conduct turned toward my recently departed mother, I requested and received permission to exit this kangaroo proceeding to avoid contempt by ambush (making another proper objection).

Shockingly, I lost contact with my precious little girls after 12 years of fit parenting as an outcome. Welcome to King’s Court where a miscarriage of justice can occur without any civil recourse. It is best explained by the kind of “political espionage” or speech suppression that can easily infect our third branch of government. Soon it will become a page-turner in my book supported by the true record.

Billions in Child Support Going to Lawyers and Bureaucrats

 

Public Apathy and Lack of Accountability in Family Court are Damaging Our Children

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

While federal and state prosecutors focus on high profile politicians for public accountability, our third branch of government remains self regulated and largely overlooked. As a result, parents, children and extended families are being fleeced by lawyers and third party beneficiaries every day to unconscionable levels. It’s all part of a lucrative child control industry.

Consider the recent custody case reported by the New York Post involving Dr. Eric Braverman, a highly committed father and respected neuro-surgeon in Manhattan who spent more than $4.5 million in an unsuccessful attempt to retain a meaningful relationship with his children. A judge-appointed attorney for those same children went to horrendous lengths to pervert this man’s efforts with fees approximating a half million dollars.

Now come on folks, let’s not lose sight of sanity here! How can one lawyer acting on behalf of immature and unsuspecting children be worth so much on a single case? Was this lawyer truly committed to “client” interests or was he seeking to justify his gigantic personal pay-out for a dubious role in a sensitive matter?

More disturbing, while this lawyer was busy racking up billable hours in his agenda against the father, those fees were being exacted from the same children’s college funds. Once again, it all goes back to our earlier posts warning followers of Leon Koziol.com that no amount of fees is enough once you enter divorce and family court. We even offer a program to convince would-be victims to choose mediation, counseling and alternative resolutions.

Compounding this uncontrolled greed is the lawyer glut entering the market. There are more than 1.25 million licensed attorneys in the United States today with about  300,000 in California alone and at least that many seeking a law school education each year. These people have to work somewhere and the bureaucrats are making room for them in family court. This is where apprentices typically learn their trade and marginal lawyers can concoct litigation to last an entire career.

The public is generally unaware that our federal government rewards the states by the number and magnitude of support awards generated in their family courts. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that such incentive grants make the decision makers inherently biased against fathers. Support obligations are artificially hiked through such judge-created fictions as imputed income. Fathers comprise 82% of support debtors per our Census Bureau.

To give an appearance of ethics, many states impose rules which prohibit lawyers from executing contingent fee arrangements in domestic relations cases. However, exceptions have been crafted which allow them for support collection purposes. This gets very interesting when you look deeper into the deceptions and the greed.

Think of it! A lawyer can now charge thousands of dollars in up front fees and billable hours during protracted litigation and then double dip on the back side by getting a third of the actual support intended for the children. The state typically gets all the interest generated off these awards in addition to a custodial fee and the federal incentive money.

In New York, the tax department is assigned support enforcement authority. In effect the state is intervening with all its machinery on the side of the so-called “custodial parent” while no similar powers are offered to the lower class parent to remedy child access deprivations. It prompted one state Supreme Court justice to question the state’s involvement in a private debt between self sufficient parents.

If you’re a debtor, you could be charged with your lawyer’s fees, the children’s lawyer, opposing fees, the contingency collection fee and court costs such as counseling, supervision and “parent education” as they call it. In countless cases, particularly those involving veterans and minorities, the debtor fathers will never be able to complete their servitude, landing them in debtor prisons. This will only add to our tax burdens and a dubious distinction as the most imprisoned population in the “free” world.

This kind of piling-on caused one police investigator to commit a murder-suicide, leaving three children without parents and city taxpayers with a $2 million liability. Nowhere in the civil rights case will you read about this father leaving support court living on $28 per week, see Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367. It begs the question: what would make a law man resort to such extremes after following the “proper” channels?

We’ve been doing our best to inform you of these alarming developments because the media is ignoring this crisis. But we cannot continue to do so without your financial support in a war against a trillion dollar industry. Public apathy has allowed this to happen along with the lawyer greed shockingly rationalized to be in our children’s best interests. It is a gold mine of unparalleled proportion that is causing so many of our social ills today. And who pays for that?
