Curiously, poor fathers are being thrown in jail in Lee County, Florida without any request being made to hold them in contempt by anyone with the right to do so and also without the notice required for a contempt hearing.

For those of you with a little legal knowledge, such action is taken without any pleading invoking the subject matter jurisdiction of the court and without the process required to confer personal jurisdiction and provide adequate notice and opportunity to prepare and present a defense. These are fundamental violations of due process which are supposed to be guaranteed by the Constitutions of Florida and the United States of America.

Also, Lee County judges are throwing poor fathers in jail for failure to pay child support even though the Florida Supreme Court has repeatedly told Florida’s judges not to do so and even though Article I, Section 11 of the Florida Constitution provides, “No person shall be imprisoned for debt, except in cases of fraud.”

Before anyone gets too excited, Florida’s courts have held that a person can be jailed for contempt if he has the ability to pay child support and refuses to do so, but once again, the judges in Lee County are throwing poor fathers in jail for failure to pay child support, even ones who are unemployed and suffering from disabilities.

Apparently, the Constitutions of Florida and the United States of America mean nothing in Lee County, Florida, and naturally, the Florida Bar approves of these fundamental violations of due process. Perhaps these judges and the ministers of legal correctness at the Floriduh Bar don’t say the pledge of allegiance or maybe they aren’t smart enough to know what liberty and justice for all means.

If you want to know why judges don’t bother to follow the law and why they will even blatantly violate it, check out Why Does the Government Ignore Our Wishes? and don’t miss my 18 minute speech. If you take a look, you’ll learn why judges and government agents get away with horrible crimes. My article on torture includes a link to the U.S. Supreme Court case which explains how one of our stolen rights makes the difference between justice and injustice, between freedom and slavery.

If you are married or thinking about getting married some day, you might want to make sure that you do something to make sure that justice is restored so that you don‘t have to fear having all of your property stolen by attorneys* and being thrown in jail by judges who either can’t read or have as much “respect” for the law as a Bush.

Remember, if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Will you help destroy our ability to control the government or will you spread the news and demand that our rights to control the government are restored? Please choose wisely and take some action by sending this to your contacts.

* There are some honest attorneys, but many family law attorneys will try to drag the lawsuit out until both of the parties are out of money. This is why the family home is usually sold after divorce.
