We need to keep the pressure on the NH Family Courts by educating the public about the numerous injustices occurring. Please feel free to send us your information for posting. I have not had any recent dealings with the court system so I do not have current information to post. The best way to deal with these unethical judges, guardian ad litems and lawyers is to post as much on them as you can so that people do not want to do business with them. I have personally known judges that have their own practices as most judges are attorneys first. Hit these people where it counts. Their wallets. Starve them out and cut off their funds. When people do not want to use their services, they will have to change their evil ways or be unemployed.

Questions Abound As Court Changes Near - From The Citizen Of Laconia Website

Questions abound as court changes near

LACONIA — The legislature is reshuffling the state court system, leading to changes at the local courthouse, as well as plenty of questions.

In January, the Judicial Branch Innovation Commission proposed a restructuring of the District and Probate Courts and the Family Division into a new “Circuit Court” aimed at consolidating operations and streamlining the workforce. The original plan called for the changes to be made gradually over 10 years, but in the wake of the budget crisis, the Legislature stepped the deadline up to July 1. Laura Kiernan, a spokesman for the judicial system said when combined with other savings and efficiencies, the changes will result in $37 million in total cumulative savings over 10 years.

An Intelligent Reader Response Regarding The Post On “A Well Written Letter From One Grandparent To Another” Which Was Posted On April 14th 2011.


Grandparents have statutory rights to "reasonable visitation" with their grandchildren per NH RSA 461-A:13.  If there is a pending matter, grandparents can file a "Motion to Intervene" to become parties to the litigation to assert their rights.  This can be especially helpful if an alienated parent is prevented from seeing his/her child due to the "system."  Getting the grandparents of the child, on the alienated parent's side could be a critical "inroad" to re-creating the relationship with the alienated parent.  Your children need exposure to "your side" - SOMEHOW!

Attorney Tracy A. Bernson Joins the Unethical “Wall of Shame”

After a recent letter from a victimized parent, Tracy A. Bernson was added to the list for her involvement in condoning parental alienation. 

The unethical “Wall of Shame” continues to grow.  If you know of a court official, attorney of guardian ad litem that should be on this wall, please send your email to nh.unethical.attorney@gmail.com 

Marital Master Leonard S. Green and GAL Tracy Bernson Fall Under Fire For Denouncing Parental Alienation – A Letter From A Victimized Parent!

I was before L. Green in late October, 2010 in the Hooksett Family Division.  I am a very informed pro se litigant, with substantial knowledge of the legal system and the family courts, as well as applicable law and procedure.

My appearance before L. Green was intended to be a 15 minute Trial Management Conference.  It turned into a 45 minute lecture from L. Green, telling me that "parental alienation was the buzz word of the 80's and that it doesn’t even exist."  Tracy Bernson, GAL naively agreed.  L. Green continued by telling me that I needed to "hire a lawyer son" and that I "should stick with what I know best, because it isn't law."  I proceeded to get into a discussion with him, in open court, about the history of American jurisprudence and the evolution of the lawyer/barrister in our country's history.  He became visibly enraged, began yelling at me telling me that I "don't know what I am talking about" and that we can save that discussion for another time because I "obviously know nothing about English Common Law."

Many of his opinions have been challenged and he was actually the lower court Judge in Shafmaster v. Shafmaster 138 N.H. 460 (1994) - The NH Supreme Court vacated and remanded his order.

In my opinion L. Green is a prejudicial, loudmouth, ignorant, old man lacking every single skill necessary to manage a courtroom and capacity of a Judge or Marital Master.  I further opine that he is completely incompetent.  He should be removed from service immediately.

Marital Master Leonard S. Green Joins The Unethical "Wall Of Shame"

I recently received correspondence from a person who had the displeasure of dealing with Master Leonard S. Green of the Manchester Family Court.  This person had brought up an issue with their spouse alienating their child.  They were told by Green that Parental Alienation was the buzz word of the 1980’s and it doesn’t even exist. 

Master Leonard S. Green has now been added to the Unethical “Wall of Shame.”  Anyone that would make a statement that parental alienation is a buzz word and it doesn’t exist has no business sitting on the bench and is a disgrace to the family court system.  Just as ignorance is no excuse for violating the law, ignorance is no excuse for destroying a child’s life. 

Go to the Courthouse Forum at the following link and take the survey and rate this Marital Master.  You will note that he has a “D” rating.

A Well Written Letter From One Grandparent To Another - From The Blog Of "Courts, Lawyers and a "Mother" Abusing My Son"

From one grandparent to another

It is only as a last resort and a feeling of sad desperation that I write you this letter. I am hoping, against all odds, that it will somehow make a difference.

Due to the fact that Kerri has chosen to try and eliminate David from Brian’s life, I too have no role, as a loving grandparent, in his life. I can’t help but wonder how you would feel if the situation were reversed and you were kept from contacting or seeing Brian.

The Guardian ad Litem Board, established by RSA 490-C, currently consists of nine members who are New Hampshire residents and serve without compensation. The term "guardian ad litem" ("GAL") is generally understood to refer to a person appointed by a court to represent the best interest of an individual (usually a child or incompetent adult) in any proceeding where a court deems it necessary to appoint such a person. The nature of a GAL's activity may vary from case to case. Generally a GAL performs those functions deemed necessary under the terms of as particular court's appointment. The appointment might, for example, include a requirement that a GAL make recommendations to the court about what is in the best interest of a recipient of services. A GAL is not appointed to serve as a person's attorney and not all GALs are lawyers. Similarly a GAL is not a general "guardian" appointed to handle the affairs of another.

NH Supreme Court Case Decision In The Matter Of James J Miller and Janet S Todd – An Important Decision On Custody


Portsmouth Family Division
No. 2009-806


Argued: November 17, 2010
Opinion Issued: March 31, 2011

Law Office of Joshua L. Gordon, of Concord (Joshua L. Gordon on the
brief and orally), for the petitioner.

John P. Carr, of Hingham, Massachusetts, and Elizabeth B. Olcott, of
Concord, on the brief, and Mr. Carr orally, for the respondent.

HICKS, J. The petitioner, James J. Miller, currently a resident of New
York, appeals an order of the Portsmouth Family Division (DeVries, J.),
recommended by the Master (Cross, M.), requiring the parties’ two minor
daughters to continue to live primarily with the respondent, Janet S. Todd, in
New Hampshire. We vacate and remand.

We have reviewed the extensive record in this case and set forth the facts
most relevant to the issues on appeal. Miller and Todd met in 1999 over the
internet and established a relationship. At that time, Miller lived in Michigan
and Todd lived in New Hampshire. Although they never married, their
relationship produced two daughters, Laurel born in 2002 and Lindsay born in
2003. During 2002 and 2003, the parties spent some time living together in
Michigan, Todd and the children spent some time alone in New Hampshire
living with Todd’s parents, and the parties all spent some time together at
Todd’s parents’ house in New Hampshire.

Toward the end of 2003, the parties’ relationship broke down. On
December 23, 2003, Miller obtained an ex parte order in the circuit court in
Michigan granting him sole temporary legal and physical custody of his
daughters. That same day, Todd took the children to her parents’ home in
Hampton, New Hampshire. On January 6, 2004, Todd was served with the
Michigan custody order. On January 15, the Rockingham County Superior
Court, in response to Miller’s petition for enforcement of the Michigan custody
decree, ordered Todd to appear at a hearing and on January 26, the trial court
ordered Todd to bring the children to Miller within twenty-four hours for the
purpose of transferring custody to him.

NH Court Overturns Custody Order - An Important Supreme Court Decision On Child Custody In NH (From The Nashua Telegraph)

Thursday, March 31, 2011

CONCORD - A Portsmouth Family Court Judge was wrong to award custody of two children to a New Hampshire woman who may have coached them to accuse their father of sexual abuse, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

In a unanimous ruling written by Justice Gary Hicks, the high court ordered Portsmouth Family Division Judge Sharon DeVries to reconsider the case of James J. Miller and Janet S. Todd.

Miller, who now lives in New York, and Todd, who lives in New Hampshire, had struck up a relationship in 1999, after meeting online. They lived together for a time in both Michigan and New Hampshire, and had two daughters.
