Just wanted to make everyone aware of something taking place in Linn County. The courts are appointing attorneys for children in the middle of a custody case. These are not Guardian Ad Litems. One in particular is Ms. Jenny Schulz, who was assigned to my case and that of a another couple divorcing last year. Avoid her like the plague if at all possible. If she gets assigned to your case, be cooperative, courteous, but expect the worst.

 

Jenny will not admit to me if she is or is not a parent. I've asked her what experience she has had as a parent and she refuses to answer. I've asked her to try and see things from my perspective, as a parent, but she has ignored facts and manipulated facts to twist them to my ex-wife's favor.

 

She visits the homes of the parents and with the children and writes a report for the court. I haven't seen mine yet, but once she was visiting my home and I pointed out a wall full of pictures of our son. At a subsequent meeting, she came in and said, "Oh, those are some nice pictures, you didn't have them before". Does she think I just slapped them up on the wall to impress her?

 

Her big concern is, you guessed it, child support. She has done little or nothing to "encourage the relationship with the non custodial parent". IA Code

 

She's rattled on that I'm obsessed with documenting and recording incidents to the point of claiming that I'm "only trying to make my ex-wife look bad", to which I stated, if I didn't document and record things she does that are so bizarre, nobody would believe me.

 

I could go on and on about the numerous lies and manipulations she has tried putting on me, and in another case, just wanted to warn everyone here about her.

 

Fortunately, she has not yet submitted a report, but you can bet your bippy that if it's as untrue as I suspect, the state judiciary will be receiving my complaint.

Another way for the courts to find a way to institutionalize and legitimize their destructive ways.  We have to keep enduring this sexist system and confront it at all turns. 

 

This will not be a quick process.

Glad to see some interest/responses here. I'll try to bring everyone up to date on this.

 

Mistee asked:

Sorry to bump an old thread, but how did it turn out?

Thanks for the bump, I've been pretty busy lately. Currently there are no 'petitions to modify' pending as I'm looking for a new attorney. Not that that will solve anything, but my last one was a huge disappointment. (Wouldn't file contempt citations when I asked her) My ex-wife's attorney recently withdrew himself, probably because he wasn't getting paid.

 

Who is assigned the costs of the childs attorney?

From what Jenny has told me, the state covers her fees.

 

Chad asked: would there be any point in hawkeye going to the Iowa bar about this attorney? Probably not, as one attorney informed me about filing a complaint with the Iowa Bar "they won't do anything".

 

Well, of course the Bar Association won't do anything, they're all in bed with each other, however the Iowa State Judicial branch (http://www.judicial.state.ia.us/regs/discipline.asp) just might. I'd urge everyone to check this link as it has a printable form AND a list of attorneys that have been disciplined or disbarred.

 

nadaka stated: Only if he wants to look as foolish as he sounds.

Excuse me, nadaka, just what are you trying to say? It makes no sense.

Thanks for replying.

 

 

 

I was half way expecting the respondent to be assigned the legal fees for the child.  I have heard of many cases where the respondent was assigned all legal costs for the petitioner.

From what I've seen, respondent/petitioner are (in family law cases) interchangable, depends on who's asking who...

Who are these people and who pays them to perhaps discourage shared parenting?

It looks like the system is treating you like a "Deadbeat Dad." You said that Linn County appointed her? Why would the courts appoint her? Would Jenny the be responsible for bringing "Contempt of Court" charges against either the mom or dad when in violation?

 

It is probably time for you to contact the news media such as the Waterloo Courier's "Call the Courier" or KWWL's "You Ask We Answer" and have them research this Jenny Shulz and her Kids First Organization.  Especially since their website does not work.

I can only assume the court (Judge Thomas) appointed her because as a male, I applied to modify our stipulations due to some major changes in circumstance. When my ex-wife applied for a modification, no attorney was appointed. I can only wonder if this attorney would have been appointed, had the gender tables been turned. FYI: My ex moved from over an hour away to five minues.

 

Interestingly, JM, our stipulations state that we (my ex & I) are to exchange telephone numbers and I am to have have "reasonable telephone contact" with our child, with a "minimum of Tues. & Thursday." My ex has had my telephone number blocked via caller ID for about two years now, and Jenny  has done absolutely nothing about it, despite my repeated requests.

 

Oh, excuse me, let me make clear, Jenny determined that our child should be the one to choose to call the NCP. Sorta dismisses BOTH parents rights, eh?Think she'll let him decide where he wants to spend most of his time and which school he wants to attend? Child is 8, going on 18. lol! Perhaps Jenny discussed this with my ex, but she has not taken any corrective action.

When the court makes decisions for both parents to follow   it is not the Attorney's place  to step over the Judges decision and make stipulations. Especially if the court hasn't approved them.  and an eight year old child cannot possibly know what is truly in the best interest of what the court has decided. And for an attorney to make this type of comment can only lead to the conclusion that this attorney is in some type of fantasy land  and needs a reality check  This is a good reason to find some way to make Attorneys accountable for their actions as well

Kids First Law Center -
A New Organization Helping Children

IOWA member Jenny Schulz opened a new nonprofit organization called the
Kids First Law Center in Cedar Rapids on January 24, 2005. Kids First is
dedicated solely to representing children. The center provides free representation
to children in custody and divorce cases between their parents. Kids First
focuses representation on children from low and middle income families in Linn
County.
The ABA recommends that children be appointed an attorney when there are
allegations of family violence, substance abuse, neglect, requests for supervised
visitation, mental health problems, relocation of a parent, a child who wants to
express his/her view, adult manipulation, interference with visitation or custody,
or a high level of acrimony. Children of high conflict divorce are at increased
risk for emotional problems, substance abuse, and educational failure. Kids First
is the only organization in Linn County to provide representation to children in
these cases free of charge. Referrals come mainly from judges and attorneys
who know which cases are high conflict and need an attorney for the child.
Kids First has one full-time attorney on staff. The attorney meets with the
children regularly while the case is ongoing; answers the child’s questions about
divorce and lets the child know what to expect; interviews parents, teachers,
doctors, babysitters, therapists, etc.; offers suggestions to the parents to keep the
child out of the conflict, decrease hostility, and improve communication; may
ask the court to require parents to attend parenting classes, anger management
programs, substance abuse, or psychological counseling; refers the family to
agencies that can offer further assistance; makes sure the child’s needs are met,
such as special education, counseling, or health care; participates in all court
proceedings; and expresses the child’s wishes to the judge.
Children benefit from having an attorney because the conflict is reduced. The
parents are more likely to come to an agreement about custody and visitation.
The child’s attorney helps the parents change negative behaviors that are motivated
by anger into positive behaviors that put their child first. Having an
advocate to voice their wishes helps children feel less helpless. Children’s
behavior is likely to improve when the child is not upset by the parents’ disputes.
Waypoint (formerly the YWCA) is providing Kids First with free office space in
downtown Cedar Rapids. Because of this and other generous in-kind donations,
Kids First’s annual operating budget is only $50,000, which includes the
attorney’s salary and health insurance, office equipment and supplies, postage,
phone, travel, and professional liability insurance.
Kids First is funded entirely by grants, corporate gifts, and private donations. If
you can contribute financially, please do so by sending a check to Kids First
Law Center, 318 5th Street SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401. If you have
fundraising ideas or sources, please share them by e-mailing
jenny@kidsfirstiowa.org. All donations are fully tax deductible.
Jenny Schulz is the sole staff at Kids First. She graduated from the University of
Iowa College of Law in 1998, practiced at a free clinic in Washington, DC from
1998 to 2000, and worked as a staff attorney at Iowa Legal Aid from 2000 to 2005.

(Taken from Iowa Organization of Women Attorneys Spring 2005 Newsletter)

KIDS FIRST LAW CENTER

Kids First Law Center opened on January 24, 2005. Kids First provides free representation to low and middle income children in custody and divorce cases between their parents. An attorney for the child is recommended in family law cases where there are allegations of domestic violence, substance abuse, mental health issues, neglect, or where there is a high level of conflict between the parents. The child’s attorney helps reduce the conflict between the parties, ensures that the child’s wishes are heard, and facilitates settlement of custody issues. Kids First is taking new cases and anyone can make a referral (judges, lawyers, parents, children). Kids First is funded solely by private donations and grants. If you are interested in making a case referral or a donation, please contact Jenny Schulz at 365-KIDS (365-5437) or by e-mail at jeneschulz@hotmail.com.

If what wendy found on kids first is true, then maby Iowa fathers can find a way to work with them to help improve the current situation. If indeed they are funded by donations then maby they can also be influence by them as well. you know the golden rule "those that have the gold make the rules"

Chad makes a good point in normal circumstances.  However, it is increasingly obvious, from correspondence threatening Libel, that Mrs. Schultz has an gender-biased and left of center agenda.  I think Hawkeye was correct in his initial assessments.  At this point Mrs. Schultz is trying to remove this thread considering it harmful to her business.  I am a little confused by that argument since it appears her "business" is not with the public but with the court when appointed.  I suspect she doesn't like the idea of being spotlighted and I am 100% certain she would not want to have her gender specific recommendations of custody revealed.  Her attempt to sue will highlight the gender bias in custody awards and hopefully bring a lot of attention and publicity to this issue.

Thanks ken I hadn't hear that Mz whatsherface was trying to remove this thread and trample the first amendment. Sound like she's worried about something. It would be nice to find out where her funding is comming from. Just what groups are these "donations" comming from amounting to $50,000 a year? Maby some editorials to say the CR Gazzette, Waterloo Currior, and Des Moines Register could fish up some answers. Has anyone tried her E-mail address. I propose we all send something to her along the lines of

 

Ms. Schulz:

Kids first

 

I'm "fill in the blank" assosiated with Iowa Fathers and I'm writing in concern for Iowas children. We are all for the Kids first idea and would like to work with your organization to ensure that the Kids really are comming first in the recomendations and decisions of the courts. We feel that Joint parenting will reduce the conflict that hurts our children so much by taking away the weapons that one parent uses against the other. We also feel that our children are irreversibly harmed by having only limmited contact with one of their parrents.

 

I look forward to hearing from you on this issue.

 

"your name"

"Your e-mail address"

 

that should stir something up anyway.

I just reread the post from wendy. Hawkeye I can't belive the courts would actualy apoint someone with that kind of resume and add. her add looks like a scam and address to send donations to, no working website, a hotmail e-mail address (nothing against hotmail i use it myself, but most buineses have some kind of official address. what do you think Brian?), all are exactly what they tell you to look out for. Then theirs the fact that the only job she could find is working at free clinics. The judge must have either been extreemly lazy(very possible) or extreemly stupid (also possible).

Correction... as I recall,

 

Jenny never stated that the state pays her fees, health insurance, office expenses, etc. I asked her once if I'm going to get a suprise bill for her services, she said "No, it's all free". It's very easy to blame the "state" for things, sorry if I caused any confusion. Ours is a huge country.

 

However, how free is free?

 

We should follow the money, eh? Grants? From whom? Corporate gifts? (Can you say boycott? I knew you could) and "private" donations? Just how private are they, really?

here is my "hypothetical" take on this situation.  i think that when people such as lawyers and judges act in a way that certain unethical lawyers and judges have acted (again, this all hypothetical and i'm not naming names or being specific), and then their actions are found out and shared with others, they get scared.  they worry about their reputation.  on some level they know what they have done is "wrong" or not in the best interest of the children.  how well they know it depends on how unethical they have become and how much of a conscience they have left.  i think that it really shows you their true character when they write to us and threaten the things that they do.  i know they think they are all big and bad but really i think they are silly.  why get so defensive over someone sharing their experience if you do not have anything to hide?  why get all hot and bothered over how you acted unless you are feeling that you acted inappropriately?  that's what gets me.  it's not about them thinking they are going to lose business. sharing your stories is not malicious nor is it libelous.  it is no different than me going to one of you and face to face telling you my situation and how a certain person treated me.  it just shows you the character of these lawyers.  or maybe i should say LACK of character.  i guess there really is truth to all the lawyer jokes.  there are too many unscrupulous and unethical lawyers out there and the people that they run over do not have the money, time, and information needed to defend themselves and fight back.  well, my friends, times are changing.  welcome to iowafathers.com!!

One of the key issued that is currently being overlooked is simple this   When some organizations attempt to gain monetary matters and/or get grants they cannot have anything negative anywhere  on them    For this might exclude them from receiving grants.  This is not to say that any of these people have ever been on Iowafathers.com    But I feel that Iowafathers.com is making a difference and people are taking notice of this site.  Imagine Someone in charge of giving grants hearing about Iowafathers.com and thinking that we are doing a good thing  getting an application from a non profit group or organization that shows  that they are bias against doing the thing for all involved  More than likely they will be passed over or excluded from these and future grants   So if what we are doing here at Iowafathers.com is forcing accountability of certain Groups   so be it   Start doing what is truly right for the child  and both parents

IF kids first is really a ligit organization then all they need to do is live up to their name and I'm sure they will do fine, but if it looks like a skunk, smells like a skunk, well you know it's probaly a skunk. And getting the word out is the best way to end a SCAM.

FYI to ALL Members:

 

Wendy and I received a letter from Jenny Schulz and her Kids First Organization requesting we remove all posts or she will pursue legal action for libel statements.  We responded with a letter defending our First Amendment Right.  I will post her letter sometime this week.

 

Ken Richards made an initial monetary contribution to an attorney to defend IowaFathers.com from these false libel claims. I want to say thanks Ken for all the support you are providing. I am in the process of finalizing the ability for IowaFathers.com to accept donations so that IowaFathers.com can defend false allegations, fight judge retention, make campaign contributions, and help fathers in dire need.

that's what i told her in the letter.  i said that further reading would have led her to the legal disclaimer that is posted in two spots.  i also told her that falsifying information and spying is against the agreement that she and/or her spy made with our website when they joined the message board and looked at posts (ryan).  apparently, these people only look at the things that jump out at them rather than the whole big picture.

Has anymore been said about the legal action from Kids and Fathers Last, Mothers First? I would be willing to write up an editorial to send to all of Iowas newspapers about it if she procedes with legal action against us.

After chasing down the mail carrier to sign Jenny's certified letter, I haven't heard a peep from her or anyone else. Maybe they're lost in their lies, eh?

 

Maybe she's come to the logical conclusion that

Children Need Both Parents.

 

I doubt it, but while I'm out and about tomorrow, I'll try to see if her office still exists. They're probably in some "undisclosed location" or bunker. LOL!

 

The facade of the Supreme Court came tumbling down today.... ironic, at least.

My guess is NOPE. Probably runs her organization out of her house with government slush grant help.  This organization probably just looks good on paper when used to justify custody and nothing else.  If anybody finds this place let me know.  I see the website still doesn't do anything for them.

Sorry folks, I've been so busy lately with other issues.

 

Funny though, my ex has been letting me have our son for a an hour or so afterschool weekdays with no input from the so called "attorney". vis Jenny.

 

WooHoo! a little extra time together, to be an obvious parent again!!! 

 

An hour a day, keeps the bad-folks at bay. Maybe they're wizeing up, eh?

It's fantastic... !!!!  I pick him up like clockwork from school and we go do different stuff everyday! 

 

Sometimes it's just going home to bake cookies (like today), other times I have a few errands to run and he gets to explore new places with DAD.

 

Either way, he learns more about the world around him, riding shotgun with a protective parent, teaching him the rules of the road.

 

Heckofalot better than him sitting in some dismal daycare for an hour or two playing pathetic video games.

That sounds like a really good deal for both you and your son! You don't have to do extravigant things with your child. my daughter and I like just sitting down and going through the Seaseme Street magazine, thats usualy good for about 30 to 40 min.

See the front page of the Cedar Rapids Gazette on Friday, Feb. 17. Absolutely no mention of "shared parenting" in the article.

 

As for my own case, my son tells me he specifically told Jenny, in their last meeting, that he wanted 50-50 time with his parents. To date she has not acknowledged that in emails to me.
