Connecticut parents say court-ordered expenses bankrupt them

From:  Love Fraud 

by Donna Andersen 

In an article for Washington Times Communities, Lovefraud reader Anne Stevenson writes that Connecticut parents allege they are being forced to hire court appointed vendors such as psychologists and guardians.
In 2013, a group of parents complained to the Legislature that these vendors were bankrupting them through their questionable billing practices. One guardian ad litem allegedly charged $40,000, but billing records indicated she spent very little time with the child she represented.
A task force established to assess Connecticut’s family courts disagreed with the parents and determined that an audit of the court’s books and contracts would be unnecessary.
Anne invites Lovefraud readers to comment on the article on the Washington Times website. More comments will mean more exposure for the article — and the problem.
