This is the fourth installment of the Blog titled ‘Divorce New Jersey Style’
INTO THE SWAMP
On 22 February 2013 I had the opportunity to represent myself in court.
Your first question would probably be, “why would he do such a ridiculous thing” ?
My answer to you is, I had nothing to hide, I had all the documents to show that I met my responsibilities as requested by my ex-wife, and my ex-wife received the money and the other requirements SHE wanted, and additionally, almost Eight, (8), years went by and my ex-wife never contacted me in any way, shape or form about any supposed issues she might have on her mind.
Any reasonable and honest person, would be assured that all issues were resolved.
The other reason was that I am twenty-two, (22), years older than my ex-wife, and wanted to make sure that there were no “loose ends” in my life. When you zoom past seventy you think about these things.
The court proceeded as you might expect, and the ‘judge’ in an effort to make this go away asked me if I would offer anything to end it.
Knowing how expensive this could get if I hired another lawyer at $350 per hour, and the added stress to my life to fight this shakedown, I offered an annuity I had worth $55,000.
The ‘D’s lawyer refused it, three times I might add. The judge virtually pleaded with the lawyer to take the offer, but obviously she refused.
At that point the ‘judge’ closed the proceedings with the comment that they should really consider taking the offer whereas he would be presiding over the “trial” three years hence.
He also went on to say that “he wasn`t going to do anything that day”, which meant to me he was going to sit on it, perhaps thinking there would be a different outcome, as there are in some other cases.
During the hearing the ‘judge’ ordered his clerk to make copies of all my documentation, which the clerk promptly did.
Then every one went home to await the results of his ‘decision’.
In the interim, I called the ‘judge`s’ office and spoke to his clerk about a missing document from the documents he took to copy at the hearing.
The clerk told me that he did not have my missing document, BUT IT DIDN`T MATTER BECAUSE, HE, (the ‘judge”), WASN`T GOING TO ENTER ANY OF MY DOCUMENTS INTO EVIDENCE !!!
Needless to say, I was floored !!!
It was a win-win situation, then by fiat, it was changed into a possible lose situation.
It get`s better…….
A copy of the ‘judges’ decision came in the mail on 26 February 2013.
The judge decided to “FREEZE” anything with my name on it without taking into consideration of the harm he would cause me, but the harm and expense he would cause to other totally innocent people.
You can`t begin to understand the shock I underwent……Just FOUR,(4), WEEKS BEFORE, JUST 4 WEEKS, THIS ‘judge’ SAID THAT THERE WAS NO REASON TO ‘FREEZE’ MY ASSETS, AND EVEN POINTED OUT PREVIOUS COURT DECISIONS TO BACK UP HIS DECISION !!
Ask yourself, what changed in those four weeks ?….What ?!.Care to guess ?
I made investments for other individuals, and did all of that work Gratis, never took one penny from anyone, as came out later in court documents.
The interesting thing was, ‘D’`s niece, for she was one of those folks, somehow she was excluded from this misery of having her assets ‘frozen’..
Everything with my name on it was rendered inaccessible;
My Checking, my CD`s, my retirement funds, my home, my three Social Security Checks at PNC Bank, and a Army retirement check at PFCU !!
A widow, for whom I took care of her investments, which were substantial;
My daughter, for her future, which included savings and gifts given to her by friends and relatives…….as you will see in coming installments, how easily they can steal from anybody, as they did from my daughter and grandchildren !!!
‘D’`s lawyers, even tried to tie up my 95 year old Mother`s checking account……..A woman who did not have two nickels to rub together !!
And of course my Social Security Checks, which were supposed to be inviolate, according to Federal law, Ref; Sec 207(42 USC407)(a) and USC 1056d…….with held by PNC Bank…..
My US Army pension Check, withheld by Pentagon Federal Credit Union in violation of
U S Supreme Court 453 US 210, and USC 1056d…..
Of course both banks, were in violation of CFR 212.6 & 212.7 !!
Later on, 31 October 2013, another ‘judge’, (#3), admitted in writing, that he was breaking the law by “freezing” these protected assets, but went ahead and ‘froze’ them anyway !!
They are truly a lawless bunch !
Believe me it gets worse, a whole lot worse ……….
Tune in for installment 5………..”Bite the Bullet”
