Self Representation Program in Divorce and Family Courts

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s human nature to seek out a partner in life, and to possibly marry and have children. Unfortunately the matrimonial establishment, as we are all aware, is being methodically torn down by a demoralized society.

Sadly the divorce rate is still on the rise and the foundation of marriage is being devalued and is crumbling. As adults we learn to adapt and move on when divorce attacks our lives but for children this is another story. They are the real victims of divorce and unfortunately they will suffer dearly from our selfishness and in most cases follow the same path of destruction if not worse.

Having previously appeared on the television news program 60 Minutes, CNN and in the New York Times, Dr. Leon Koziol, J.D., wants to help you take control of your family court case.

After hearing ordeals from countless unsuspecting victims, their financial and emotional devastation by the lucrative family court machine, Dr. Koziol knew that he could no longer just sit back and watch these atrocities continue.

“We have an epidemic here in America and no one is doing anything to cure it. There’s a direct correlation between family courts and suicides among parents, veterans and children. And the statistics show it is occurring at an alarming rate. If I can save one person from taking…

Civil Conspiracy in Divorce Actions

Family Civil Rights Movement - 2015Civil Conspiracy and Civil RICO in Divorce Actions – Family Law Reader

I. Introduction

There is little question that fraud in procuring a settlement agreement can justify setting aside the agreement and judgment. E.g., In re Marriage of Modnick, 33 Cal. 3d 897, 191 Cal. Rptr. 629 (1983); Compton v. Compton, 101 Idaho 328, 612 P.2d 1175 (1980); Anderson v. Anderson, 399 N.E.2d 391 (Ind. Ct. App. 1979); Daffin v. Daffin, 567 S.W.2d 672 (Mo. 1978).

Fraud in procuring a settlement can also be the basis for an independent tort action. Hall v. Hall, 455 So. 2d 813 (Ala. 1984); In re Benge, 151 Ariz. 219, 726 P.2d 1088 (Ct. App. 1986); Dale v. Dale, 66 Cal. App. 4th1172, 78 Cal. Rptr. 2d 513 (1998); Den v. Den, 222 A.2d 647 (D.C. 1966); Oehme v. Oehme, 10 Kan. App. 2d 73, 691 P.2d 1325 (1984); Burris v. Burris, 904 S.W.2d 564 (Mo. 1995); Carney v. Wohl, 785 S.W.2d 630 (Mo. Ct. App. 1990); Hess v. Hess, 397 Pa. Super. 395, 580 A.2d 357 (1990). See also Vickery v. Vickery, 1996 WL 255755 (Tex. Ct. App., December 5, 1996) (wife awarded $9 million against husband for fraudulently procuring divorce and marital settlement agreement, and $450,000 against husband’s attorney),affirmed over dissent in light of Schleuter v. Schleuter, 975 S.W.2d 584 (Tex. 1998),Vickery v. Vickery, 999 S.W.2d 342 (Tex. 1999). See generally, Robert G. Spector,Marital Torts: The Current Legal Landscape, 33 Fam. L. Q. 745, 757 (1999); Cary L. Cheifetz, The Future of Matrimonial Torts: The Unmapped Landscape, 15 Fair$hare 4 (August 1995). The courts are especially harsh with spouses that commit fraud who are attorneys. Anderson v. Anderson, 399 N.E.2d 391 (Ind. Ct. App. 1979); Scholler v. Scholler, 10 Ohio St. 2d 98, 462 N.E.2d 158 (1984); Webb v. Webb, 16 Va. App. 486, 431 S.E.2d 55 (1993).

The concealment of marital assets during the divorce proceeding has also given rise to tort actions. Swain v. Swain, 576 N.E.2d 1281 (Ind. Ct. App. 1991); Garrity v. Garrity, 399 Mass. 367, 504 N.E.2d 617 (1987). But seeBeers v. Beers, 724 So. 2d 109 (Fla. 5th DCA 1998); Nederlander v. Nederlander, 205 Mich. App. 123, 517 N.W.2d 768 (1994); Smith v. Smith, 113 N.C. app. 410, 438 S.E.2d 457 (1994); Schleuter v. Schleuter, 975 S.W.2d 584 (Tex. 1998); Gardner v. Gardner, 175 Wis. 2d 420, 499 N.W.2d 266 (Ct. App. 1993).

Spouses have even been successfuly in asserting violations of securities laws. Evans v. Dale, 896 F.2d 975 (5th Cir. 1990). But see Head v. Head, 759 F.2d 1172 (4th Cir. 1985); McHugh v. McHugh, 676 F. Supp. 856 (N.D. Ill. 1988); d’Elia v. d’Elia, 58 Cal. App. 4th 415, 68 Cal. Rptr. 2d 324 (1997).

But what can a spouse do when a third party or parties conspires with a spouse to hide marital assets? Is there a cause of action against the third parties? Increasingly, some spouses have been turning to civil conspiracy and Civil RICO.

Re: Family Judge Daniel King
Dear Members of the Commission:

I am formally lodging a complaint against Lewis County Family Judge Daniel King. I was incarcerated for a maximum period of six months in the Lewis County Jail for back child support and nearly died as a result. I will do my best to explain this shocking but true story. Before being released this past June, I was severely mistreated by Judge King and prison guards as a “city slicker.” I was placed in solitary confinement for five days for defending other abused inmates. It was so cruel in there that I suffered tremendous psychological pain and trauma.Broken Fathers - 2015

In August, I was rushed to the hospital where I was held for five days. They discovered a large tumor pressing into the back of my lungs and a growth on my Thyroid gland. It produced bleeding internally and externally from all openings of my body with the exception of my eyes and ears. It was traced to all the stress I suffered from my six month imprisonment by Judge King. One of my fellow inmates, Justin Hurley, was gay and abused for that reason. I did my best to protect him time and again. That is why he confided in me personal information about working on Judge King’s home and camp. He explained how he got special treatment as a result.

For example, Justin was given drug treatment instead of prison time and released while I was there. He had been convicted of multiple felonies with a long record of crimes back to 2007, this time for operating a meth lab in Lowville, New York. When I got out I also shared this information with Leon Koziol because I wanted him as my attorney for winning a criminal jury case many years ago that kept me out of jail. If he could have represented me in an impartial court, instead of the one operated by Judge King, none of this would have occurred. I also knew what happened to Leon by the same judge and all the harm it caused to his family, health and professional career.

So a group of us travelled to the Lowville courthouse during the last week of October, 2015 to get public records verifying the information I received while in prison. We also went to Judge King’s clerk to get information on my case because I had never come before him at any time before, during and after my six month incarceration. Two of the inmate files obtained next door at county criminal court backed up the information I was told. One of them was this Justin Hurley. Leon needed a statement from him for a federal case he filed against Judge King on November 13, 2015. But Justin committed suicide in the same jail this past Wednesday after being returned since the time we went out to see him at his apartment. Also I was returned to the hospital for three weeks before he went back in.

Parental-rights (1)When we went around Lowville looking for Hurley, we learned that his mother had just died so he was going to get back to us after a grieving period about doing an affidavit for Leon. Before we could get it from him, Justin committed suicide in the same Lewis County jail where I spent six months protecting him. It occurred on the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 25, 2015. The other file was Robert Campany, who was convicted of Grand Larceny, Fourth Degree, involving firearms. He was given the same period I was, six months on a split sentence. He was brought before Judge King a number of times while I was there for back child support and released from jail without any time served for it. This is because locals get preferential treatment from what I was told.

Robert Campany bragged to me how Judge King would make positive remarks about his family members in court. We tried to get statements from him which he promised but he is employed out of state on contract jobs. I had a terrible time making sense of all this special treatment. Despite my own requests to come before Judge King like Campany did, I did not even get the courtesy of an answer. I read a case about another family judge named David Jung who was removed from office for this sort of thing. I am attaching a warrant for my arrest signed by Judge King which required me to be brought before him. It never happened to this day. I was taken straight to Lewis County jail after as many as six U.S. Marshals and police showed up at both my workplace and my home to arrest me on it.

I was told by a state police officer that my sentence of three months was increased to the maximum by Judge King. He was surprised by this, and inmates or CO’s in the jail were even more surprised based on what they were used to seeing. I am attaching a copy of his commitment order showing this. I could not understand how two guys with long criminal records and serious felony convictions could do the same or less time in jail when all I did was find myself unable to get a good enough job to pay a debt. I love my daughter and was deprived six months contact with her including time spent at the hospital. After coming out of my five day hospital stay in August, 2015, with recommendations for recovery and no stress or court appearances, I was summoned back to Lowville Family Court for the money I could not pay while in jail. I was threatened with another warrant if I failed to show up.

Shortly after that appearance, I nearly died from further complications when I became non-responsive to my brother while staying at his home. He tried to wake me up after two days of sleep thinking I was sick. If it wasn’t for my mother calling him and making sure I was alright, I would not be making this complaint today, and Leon would be without another important witness to King’s abuses of fathers in his court. I spent three weeks in the hospital this time. Blood was spilling out into my body from that tumor on my lung, my systems were shutting down, a tube had to be placed into my neck to my heart just to keep me alive, and I had to be placed on kidney dialysis.

My support hearing is set to occur three weeks from now, and I want to assure this commission that I will not be alive to survive another six months by Judge King. For me it’s a matter of life and death just so that Judge King could get money out of me that I cannot earn. According to the attached paper, I owed about $7,000 with a $5,000 purge amount. You will see how Judge King raised the term from three months to six months without explanation and no input from me under that warrant. I believe he is trying to make a name for himself by abusing his office as a judge. This is family court not criminal court but as you can see I was treated far worse than the criminals.

While in Lowville tracking down witnesses we could not obtain from confidential family court files, we stopped into a local tavern/restaurant. Judge King had been making an issue of (parents who use alcohol around their children). We asked the barmaid there if any important people come to that bar. The first person she answered was Judge King, and she even knew what he drank. She also informed us without prompting that Judge King brought his own children there. It is only the tip of an iceberg, and I am asking this commission to remove Judge Daniel King as it did to David Jung. I can be reached anytime unless I’m in the hospital, in jail or court at (315) 534-5960.

Thank you for your concern.

Very truly yours,

Michael BrancaccioJudges - 2015

Within 24 hours of getting a gag order against this site from Family Judge Dan King, I filed a challenge while refusing to shut it down. See yesterday’s post. We’ll keep you “posted” if this form of government allows it.

Hopefully you’ve been following developments so you know how we’ve been exposing corruption and assisting victims of family court abuses. Yesterday we explained how our work saved another dad from suicide. Now for the mom side.

During the same weekend I got an incoming call from a mother threatening to do herself in as a result of the criminal type targeting she sustained for 15 years. Yeah that’s how long they’ll hound you for money. It’s too long a story here…
