when a woman decides to forget (For all women battling domestic violence) — The Lonely Author

My long time followers know I am a crusader against domestic abuse. A precious friend finds herself trapped in a relationship of physical/mental abuse. Although her husband will never read my poem, this is for him and all the other losers. when a woman decides to forget a white table cloth stained by unspoken words […]

My Batterer’s Attorney, Trevor Jackson, Sent Me an Email This Evening Stating in Part that His Client Does Not Pose a Danger to Me.

Wow….Good to know? This is the same attorney who has falsified documents and misrepresented facts to family court. This is So I am suppose to feel safer now on his word. Hmmm…

It is 1:30 a.m. Letting y’all in on my internal thought process…

This is raw writing.  I had a great day. Busy. A family celebration. So why the post?  Reality of post traumatic stress.

 

I have nightmares almost nightly.

It usually involves Dr. John Velyvis, My now Ex husband. It is simply flashbacks.

However, I also experience nightmares of seemingly current involving him as well.

Just posting the day and life of aftermath. Goodnight.

 

 

I Am Tired but Happy…

I am tired but happy, and about to go to sleep but wanted to post. I decided long ago what is the most important love in my life. My grandson! I had the priveledge of creating his three year Birthday Celebration Cake! This is an example of what I mean when I post, “Peace in the Midst of Life’s Storms. ”

Regardless, I feel I must also press on in the areas of injustice. I have to balance out my family with my cause. Thank you for your patience.

 

 

Marin Family Court Misconduct Judge Beverly Wood Reprinted from Center for Judicial Excellence

Marin Court Misconduct Judge Beverly Wood

I have experienced first hand the misconduct of  Beverly Wood. My advice to any divorcing couple is to move out of Marin County beforehand if justice is what you desire. I have learned there are the California Rules of Court, the Marin Local Rules of Court, and the “Make up Rules as We go Along Rules of Court Under the Guise of Judicial Discretion.” I personally try hard to follow all procedural rules which is difficut to navigate in itself. I am stunned that the court itself doesn’t adhere to the proper rules of the California. It is my opinion that the Hon. Beverly Wood is intellectually dishonest.

The dishonesty of the court  is why the Dr. John Velyvis’s of the world get away with just about anything in Court. Money talks. I really wish I were able to attend the recent Legislative Hearing at the Sacramento Capital last month. I would have made a public comment there along with many other members of the public. There are many women who have sent in complaints to the Commission for Judicial Performance concerning Judge Wood. These are not “disgruntled” women who didn’t like a ruling. These are woman whose basic rights have been stripped away.

Due process rights. Fundamental rights are stripped away from the party that the Hon. Beverly Wood doesn’t like, usually the Wife/Litigant in the Divorce case. Her “OFAH” Orders and Findings After Hearing rarely coincide with the actual Court Reporter Transcripts. I have reviewed different cases. Much misrepresentation of facts occurs. I have spoken to lawyers who agree but don’t challenge her for fear of retaliation. This reprint is worth the read for those serious about judicial accountability and the rights of all citizens.

A Domestic Violence-TRO I Filed September 2018 Against Dr. John Velyvis, but was Wrongfully Denied Without a Hearing…..My DV-700 to Extend My DVRO Against Him “Went Awry” in the courthouse according to Judge Beverly Wood

Melissanne DV-TRO 2018

Judge Beverly Wood of Marin County Court has been embroiled with me since the beginning as she is with most wives in divorce in Marin County. She is biased toward Dr. Velyvis due to his position as a surgeon, and treats him as her peer overall. Disgusting.

I had a right to an automatic renewal of my expiring DVRO against Dr. John Velyvis in May 2017. My attorney, Arvin Lugay filed the correct paperwork for the matter. The Court failed to address it for quite some time. Judge Beverly Wood stated my filing (DV-700) must have, “went awry as often happens.” I was stunned. She basically made me begin all over again. Then denied it without a hearing. This is one of several orders currently  on Appeal with the San Francisco Appellate Court.

I had recused this judge for cause in October of 2017 at the recommendation of  Marin attorneys. She failed to step down, then ruled against me in EVERY SINGLE hearing afterwards. I have been retaliated against for filing Commission for Judicial Performance Complaints against her as well. She designated me a vexatious litigant in the summer of 2018 to block me from access to justice throughout the final divorce. I never wanted to be a Pro se litigant. She erred by not following the California Rules of Court concerning attorney retainer fees in my divorce. A manifestation of abuse of discretion in this case.

I have removed the children’s first names on DV-TRO.

I have been unprotected. This is what happens when a woman cannot afford proper counsel. Money talks in Marin County, California.
