The Ambrose Papers #6: Despite Alleged Isolation, Sexual, Psychological Abuse of Children, and Child Porn; Ambrose Wins Custody

Chris Ambrose, father.

The video made by legendary Texas reporter, Wayne Dolcefino of three children removed from the custody of their mother by Connecticut family court concludes with the mother, Karen Riordan, crying for her children.

This is Part #6 of the Ambrose Papers. It is the story of how CT Family Court Judge Jane Grossman seemingly working hand-in-glove with Cohen and Wolf lawyer, Jocelyn Hurwitz, and the court-appointed psychologist, Dr. Jessica Biren-Caverly – three women in a room – to determine the fate of three children, Mia, 14, Matthew, 14, and Sawyer 11,  handing them to their father, against their wishes.

The Ambrose Papers #5: Longtime ABC Reporter Wayne Dolcefino Investigating; Says Children Reached Out to Him Alleging Abuse by Father

The father is TV screenwriter, plagiarist, and alleged pedophile, Chris Ambrose.

Chris Ambrose got fired from the TV show Instinct after being caught red-handed plagiarizing from an older show he was connected with, Bones.

Though the Dolcefino video ends with the mother, Karen, crying for her motherless children, her final statement implies more: The children not only lost their mother with the one-fell-swoop ruling of Judge Jane Grossman, they lost the whole world they used to know.

The father was away most of their lives working in Los Angeles and New York pursuing his TV career, while the children lived in Connecticut with their mother. The mother’s family and network of friends; these were the people in the children’s lives.

Since getting custody 18 months ago, their father has refused the children access not only to their mother but the entire family and all their lifelong friends.

Just so you get the picture. The father returns to Connecticut after losing his career after an immensely stupid, ham-handed act of plagiarism that got him fired from the TV show Instinct.  Out of work, unemployable in his career, [Hollywood producers take a dim view of high paid writers who plagiarize] he realized that he had to make some drastic moves.

Fifteen years earlier Ambrose married Karen Riordan. He apparently lied to her before they were married, pretending to be heterosexual. He even made faux attempts at intimacy prior to the marriage just, it seems, to fool Karen that he would be intimate after the wedding.

After they were married, he never consummated the marriage. It was one excuse after the other for 15 years: erectile dysfunction, venous leakage, high anxiety, self-conscious about his physique, too much stress. Later she found out. He was gay and married Karen because he wanted his ultra-conservative Catholic family to believe he was not.

He stole years from her life in ruthless deception. Karen believed his lies for years. Because he was unable to have sex [so he said], Karen had always wanted to adopt children and he agreed. She would put her efforts into being a mother and try to support her husband as he tried various remedies [he said] to overcome his fear, or physical conditions, to explain why he could never, not even once, have sex with his wife.

[It was not until much later when she and the children discovered gay porn, especially military and young Latino porn, did she realize that he does not like women, only boys and young Latino men.]

So the couple adopted three children. Karen raised them, with the help of family and friends, while Ambrose was off in Los Angeles or NYC, working on TV shows like Law and Order, Harry’s Law, Judging Amy, Bones, etc.

And it turns out, Ambrose was leading a double life. While Karen is living the life of a stay at home mother dedicating her whole life to her children, Ambrose was secretly living out his fantasies, which if they were anything like the websites found on his computer, it involved fathers introducing their Latino sons into oral and anal sex, forced haircuts -Ambrose apparently trolls the internet posing as a barber -.and military gay sex.

Found on Ambrose’s phone by his children. Ambrose pretends to be a barber online as he trolls to pick up gay men and possibly teen boys.

Which brings us back to his getting fired for plagiarism and his coming home to Connecticut, filing for divorce, secretly taking control of the joint bank accounts of his and Karen’s and, by paying the guardian ad litem some $175,000, winning custody of the three children with the exclusion of their mother.

For the children it was a stunning, traumatizing experience. Their stranger father, who they call “Creepy Cree” because of his strange and abusive behavior with them, snatched them from their home and by all accounts consistently abuses them.

On April 24, 2020, based on no evidence whatsoever, other than the recommendation of a money-hungry guardian ad litem and a curiously inept psychologist, who diagnosed Karen with an unspecified personality disorder, [she was not Karen’s psychologist] the kids were ordered away from their mother and into the hands of the father. It was to be a “temporary order” lasting a weekend, then a week, and now the isolation has lasted 18 months.

With the loss of their mother, they were also denied contact with “Papa,” their grandfather, Joani, their grandmother, Aunt Dee, cousins, Austin, Pam, Colin, Julianne, Nicholas, Aunt Michelle, Mama Diane, Fernando, Aunty Jen, Addie, Aunt Millie, Megan, Viv, Henrik, Sophia, Nate, Ella, Jacob, Jasper, Aunt Barbara, cousin Johnny, cousin Susan, Janet, Christopher, and Nick and Julie, godparents, who helped raise all three children and neighbors Stacy, Russell and Brandon.

All of them vanished from their lives.

The children with Aunt Barbara, who has not seen the children in 18 months. She used to see them regularly, since birth for 13 years. She is in her 80’s.  She asked to see the children but Ambrose refused.

Aunt Barbara asked to take Chris and the children to breakfast at a place of his choosing. Ambrose refused. Aunt Barbara asked to stop by with bagels; to see the children and give Sawyer his birthday gifts as she had done for 10 years. Ambrose refused.

He did not even want their aunt to text them.

Cousin John with the children.

Mama Diane, Fernando, Sawyer, Aunt Micelle (Matthew’s godmother), Mia and Matthew- celebrating. The children are not permitted to see any of their friends and family anymore.

 

.

Traditions with Aunt Millie! She is now removed from their lives.

Devoted cousins for 13 years; now vanished.

 

And the YMCA Showtime Gymnastics Coach since kindergarten, Sally Silverstein, and YMCA Showtime Team and all the coaches and supports– who instill values, morals and friendships to last a lifetime…  Gone. With the children puzzled as to why their world disappeared.

 
And their summers in Rhode Island with Papa now denied to them for two years.
.
Traditions, connections, memories, which bring security, roots which allow kids to thrive in the world, with a support network of lifelong loving friends and relatives– deliberately taken from three innocent children.
Treasured friendship for 13 years… now lost for these children.
.
Friendships nurtured since kindergarten, eviscerated. Vanished without a trace.

When you catalogue cruelties and its harshness, this is near the top.  These children may never be the same.

These four, the rapacious guardian ad litem, Jocelyn Hurwitz, of Cohen and Wolf, the quack psychologist Jessica Biren-Caverly, the reckless Judge Jane Grossman and the deceptive, abusive, gruesome Chris Ambrose, took away the children’s security, took away their place in the world, their familiarity of people, and places where they used to go; the symbolic things, the traditions, the things and memories that sustain young lives and old lives too.

. .

Celebrating milestones…

Sharing time and learning skills…

.

Birthdays, holidays, summer vacations and gatherings with people regularly seen, and loved, now vanished into mist. Just like that.

The whole life of these children snatched from them suddenly when they were 13, 13, and nine.

Best friends, their grandpa, everybody. All gone. It came without warning too. One aunt begged to see the kids and Ambrose would not even let her glimpse them.

No Christmas, no gifts, no birthday cake, nothing any more. That’s not Ambrose’s way.

Caverly, Grossman, Hurwitz and Ambrose, four sinister creatures if ever there were some, would not let the mother make a phone call to her children on their birthdays. They hammered her with the false allegation of parental alienation. But who are the true alienators?

Ignoring Sexual Abuse Allegations

We will be diving into this in detail, and if does not lead to the arrest of Chris Ambrose, and his coconspirators, I will be shocked.

Like the NXIVM case, the feds from another district may have to intervene once they realize the enormity of this conspiracy and the coopting of local authorities.  It took me four months of writing daily before the New York Times took up my NXIVM story, crediting me with breaking it.

The six NXIVM defendants, Upper Row: Kathy Russell, Keith Raniere, Nancy Salzman, LowerAllison Mack, Lauren Salzman, Clare Bronfman

It took another six months before the feds arrested the sex traffickers. Justice may be coming for Ambrose and cronies such as Hurwitz, Caverly, Grossman and others to be named in subsequent articles.

As important as the freeing of sex slaves in NXIVM is the freeing of children of sexual and psychological abuse, isolation and deprivation of their family.

What we have in Ambrose, Caverly, Hurwitz and Grossman, is the convergence of arrogance and stupidity. Stupid, if they think that no one will spot what they are doing, and arrogant, because they think that, even if someone does, they can get away with it.

These placed the children with an alleged sexual abuser. It is a fact that on three separate occasions the children [without their mother, who they had not seen in months] screamed for help, claiming Ambrose was abusing them.

As I will detail in future posts, three times, Sept. 2, 2020, Dec. 2, 2020 and Jan 26, 2021, the children were removed from the father and taken to the hospital for suspected abuse.

The Department of Children and Family Services each time put 96 hour holds on the children so they could be examined and police could investigate and not returned to the father.

In all three cases, the guardian ad litem, Hurwitz rushed to intervene. She jumped in, and in one damning instance she lied by omission to the judge. She said that the hospital did not seek psychological evaluations. No, they did not. She was right. The hospital wanted a forensic examination to determine if the children were sexually violated.

The hospital report reads “Sexual abuse is alleged and disclosures were made by Mia and Sawyer during a forensic interview. The children reported feeling unsafe to return to father’s home….  Mother is not allowed to have contact with the children and is the non custodial parent and not an option at this time per family court order.”

Read the report

Guardian Hurwitz did not disclose this to the court. She only told the judge that the hospital did not order a psychological evaluation. The judge ordered the children back at once to the father.

Three times, the guardian got the children returned within 24 hours to their father despite allegations that he

  1. touched his son’s penis
  2. Went into bed with him repeatedly
  3. Kissed him inappropriately
  4. threatened the children that if they spoke out he would ensure they would never see their mother again
  5. touched his daughter’s private parts
  6. secretly recorded them. [it is not known if he acquired naked photos]
  7. took all doorknobs off doors so they could not shut their doors
  8. placed bells on the doors so he can hear them coming and going in and out of rooms
  9. keeps them in isolation in a rural property
  10. Took their cell phones, they do not even a land line phone, no internet.
  11. took all their belongings
  12. Tells the daughter that she is a boy, not a girl.
  13. tells the children that their mother is mentally ill and dangerous
  14. Allowed his children, 14, 14 and 11, access to his gay pornography on his own phone
  15. Tells the children they are the liars and no one believes them.
  16. Tells the children they are “sick” and “twisted”
  17. Engages in excessive drinking [GAL Hurwitz blamed Ambrose’s drinking on mother, Karen Riordan]
  18. many other sordid and disgusting things.

When the children tried to report these things, on three occasions, the guardian ad litem, Jocelyn Hurwitz overrode DCF, the hospital and everyone else and got the judge to order the children back home to their father where they were punished when they got home.

They know better now than to complain about abuse again.

Child Porn Evidence Ignored

Before Ambrose left the family home, the mother took two laptops to be examined. She discovered Ambrose was visiting sites with gay and child porn. A forensic expert she retained said they found an abundance of websites Ambrose had visited on the computer and evidence that Ambrose, who is a computer techie himself, had removed much of the porn. But traces remained.

Sites that contain porn images of fathers raping their underage sons [www.mygaycash.com/Bringmeaboy].

The site promoted itself: “In the deepest recesses of our hearts, some of us yearn to be Daddies to good little boys even if they are only our stepsons. Join us at Bring Me A Boy as we explore tight, smooth bodies then stretch tight holes or smear cum on their faces. Let us corrupt, the pretty little things which we call son.”

All kinds of sites with adults having sex with Latino boys. [The Ambrose children are Latino and adopted.]

And porn sites featuring “twinks,”, young adults who look like adolescent or preadolescent boys.

Then there was his fondness for these sites:

Forensic evidence suggests that not only did Ambrose visit the sites, he might be producing porn for some of the websites.

When Karen got the forensic report she brought it to her attorney, and the guardian ad litem, Jocelyn Hurwitz.  A shocked Hurwitz, shocked not because of the porn on Ambrose’s computer, but because she might lose her billings if Ambrose lost custody, rushed to stop Karen for taking this further.

Karen was planning to turn everything over to the police. Hurwitz scurried to court and got Judge Grossman to order Karen to immediately return the hard drives to Chris, make a list of anyone she told about the computer porn, and that she could NOT do any further forensic analysis.

The original forensic report still exists and remains ignored by Connecticut Family Court. Perhaps it will not remain ignored if the FBI takes an interest.

Bleak House

Let us conclude with a portrait of Connecticut family court, largely paraphrased from Charles Dicken’s Bleak House:

The family court judge is sitting in court. There is no jury. She alone will decide the fate of three children, and whether to favor the mother or the father, and this fair and impartial decision will be based on the recommendation of an attorney, called the guardian ad litem, who is paid by the hour, paid by the father.

She has billed $178,000 and the father, because he controls the money, not the mother, who was the stay-at-home caretaker, has sided with the father, every inch of the way.

The guardian ad litem worked closely with another professional, the custody evaluator, a psychologist, whose duty it is to serve the guardian ad litem, and this custody evaluator found precisely in the guardian’s best financial interests, which is not to let the mother see her children, children she raised from infancy while the father was away pursuing his career.

Oh, but there were hearings?

On such afternoons, the Family Court and its teat suckers are engaged in one of the ten thousand stages of an endless case, groping knee-deep in technicalities, running their heads against walls of words and making a pretense of equity with serious faces.

On such an afternoon the lawyers in the cause, who make a fortune by it, ought to be–as are they not?–ranged in a line, in a long matted well (but you might look in vain for truth at the bottom of it) between the husband-father and the wife-mother and the black robe, with answers, rejoinders, injunctions, affidavits, issues, references to reports, mountains of costly nonsense, piled before them.

This is the Court which has its ruined homes and blighted children, removed from the parent that loves them in every district, and which has its worn-out lunatic in every madhouse granted custody, and emotionally dead mothers in every churchyard; ruined childhoods with slipshod heels and threadbare dress, borrowing and begging through the round of every man’s acquaintance, which gives to monied might the means abundantly of wearying out the right, which so exhausts finances, patience, courage, hope, so overthrows the brain and breaks the heart, that there is not an honorable person among its practitioners who would not give–who does not often give–the warning, “Suffer any wrong that can be done you rather than come here to Family Court!”

  • The following is part of the Child Custody evaluation:

    “Mr. Ambrose’s account of the alienation has to evaluated as to whether or not it is a reversal that abusers adopt as part of their psychological defense system, (Lynch, 2015). Lynch points out that reversal occur because individuals who cannot regulate their negative feelings “project” them onto others, so they accuse others of what in fact they are doing. It should be understood that alienation is part of an abusive dynamic; what needs to be established is who is doing the alienating.
    Lubit (2019b) points out as well, that alienation “

    I found this intriguing, this paragraph particularly interesting, because Ambrose is possibly projecting the parental alienation angle.

  • Why is Jocelyn Hurwitz still in practice? Her child abuse was proven by investigative journalist, Keith Harmon Snow, “In the Worst Interest of the Child: Trafficking Children Through the Family Courts”

    Looks like she did the same thing to two adolescent girls who reported abuse at the hands of their father. The mom is a special education teacher also– in Darien– and she somehow suddenly became unstable and an “alienator”– unable to parent the girls she raised?
    This is criminal.

    Frank — PLEASE Find out who is protecting Jocelyn Hurwitz– she’s been abusing children and destroying lives of families for a decade. Who continues to protect? I fear how high up in CT govt. this corruption goes– Judicial Review is a joke.

    Judge Jane Emons was finally removed by a unique maneuvering of CT legislative branch. Jane Emons now sits beside Jocelyn Hurwitz in the relatively small law division of Cohen and Wolf. The public needs Frank Report to end sadistic conduct and abuse of children.

    Excerpt from Keith Harmon Snow—

    Family Courts in US: GALS, Doctors, Custody Consultants — One Hand Washes the Other
    August 28, 2019

    … Some of the same people who violated the rights of Sunny Kelley also violated the rights of ‘Mrs. Wilson’, a protective mother whose two daughters were allegedly being physically and emotionally abused by the father. Here the court empowered the guardian ad litem — from the high-profile firm Cohen & Wolf — and silenced the mother with a gag order based on the extortionary threat of taking away a protective mother’s children.

    “Neither parent will report allegations of physical or sexual abuse to the police, DCF, or the pediatrician,” ordered Judge Richard E. Burke in Mrs. Wilson’s case, “the court will direct such allegations to the guardian ad litem who will review them (with Dr. Robson if necessary) for their merit before they are passed on to any or all of those agencies. A parent who violates that pathway through the Guardian ad Litem invites an immediate review of the parenting plan and alteration in access to the minor children.”

    Meanwhile, GAL Hurwitz did not present the evidence of Mr. Wilson’s destructive behavior to Dr. Robson or to the court, but instead kept it buried in her file. Hurwitz also did not correct Dr. Robson’s testimony or his report. The evidence supported the complaints that Mrs. Wilson’s two girls had made against their father.

    The decision by Judge Richard Burke is fraught with irregularities. GAL Jocelyn Hurwitz violated CT state laws by faxing a copy of the full custody decision to the officials at the school attended by the two children in Darien CT, prior to it being a final decision.
    Mrs. Wilson’s case also involved Dr. Kenneth Robson — the pivotal agent of the court historically used to protect pedophiles — who fraudulently diagnosed Mrs. Wilson with multiple mental illnesses. Dr. Robson and Judge Richard Burke are both on record documenting that father Mr. Wilson hit, yelled and swore at his two children — even knowing how much this scares them.
    In the now-sealed custody study, Dr. Robson confirmed that Mr. Wilson admitted that mother Mrs. Wilson did none of the things he noted about Mr. Wilson (hitting, yelling, and swearing at his children). Even with Dr. Robson’s documentation, Kathy Bella at the Stamford DCF closed the case against Mr. Wilson — claiming it was ‘unsubstantiated’ — in September 2011.

    The court awarded custody to the abusive father Mr. Wilson. Making matters worse, Mr. Wilson couldn’t care for the two girls, and he didn’t want to. After dragging the family through a $300,000 custody battle, Mr. Wilson attempted to bully the two girls into signing themselves into foster care in August 2011.

    When that didn’t work he dumped the kids back with their mother on August 10, 2011. While Judge Richard Burke, the Superior Court for Juvenile Matters and the CT Appellate Court are all aware of the current custody realities, no court will hold a hearing to transfer custody back to Mrs. Wilson.
    Same Names
    In some fifteen or twenty cases of judicial abuse reviewed for this story, the same names keep coming up as custody evaluators, psychologists and psychiatrists. The relationship between the GAL and custody evaluators is similar to the relationships between judges and attorneys. No attorney wants to anger or alienate a judge, because they want to win cases, and so, generally, they do not defend their clients too vigorously. Custody evaluators rely on guardians ad litem for recommendations and court appointments, and so they don’t in any way discourage or alienate these GAL lawyers. One hand washes the other, and lucrative contracts are awarded to the custody evaluators. The children do not matter.

  • Something isn’t right with this story. A stay at home mom doesn’t lose custody unless she did something bad. Very bad. Maybe she’s the true abuser? Just look at how she’s exposed her kids in this series. Can you say emotional abuse? No way this husband controls an entire state of cops, judges, attorneys, family services, reporters. They all just roll over for him? Mark my words, she’s the sicko. That’s why she lost the kids. In any event, this is dull. Typical woman scorned says her husband’s gay and a pedo yet no one believes her. Happens every day. You know that too, Frank. Plus you’re only giving her side. This ain’t “investigative journalism.” You’re either banging her or cashing her (husband’s) checks. Move on, please. I’m bored.

    • That the mother ‘did something bad. Very bad. And is the abuser’? The only thing I’ve read about the mother is that Chris Ambrose paid a psychologist who gave a non-existent diagnosis of ‘unspecified personality disorder’. This ‘diagnosis’ is not a valid medical diagnosis and seems intentionally vague. One could argue that everyone on the planet has an ‘unspecified personality disorder’. There seems to be plenty of evidence against the father from folks not on his or her payroll by way of non-biased medical professionals at three different hospitals. Where is this evidence you claim exists against the mother?

        • Unspecified Personality Disorder is synonymous with Personality Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (NOS) Using NOS is the clinician’s way of saying there is a diagnosis in this general category but I don’t have enough information to make a specific diagnosis yet. Psychologists are not real physicians, they hold PhDs and no medical degree and, therefore, are not qualified to make a clinical diagnosis.

          • First, the claim was that there’s no such thing as Unspecified Personality Disorder. Now you are acknowledging that I’m right — that it was a lie.

            Now you are moving the goalposts.

            Just give up. The mother is obviously a lunatic. The court system is heavily biased in favor of mothers keeping their children.

            This is all a homophobic witch hunt.

            Maybe hire Suneel Chakravarty to help with this “investigation.l

  • Hate to break it to you all, but we live in 2021.

    It isn’t illegal to be gay and this court clearly doesn’t buy the argument that because this guy is gay, he’s a child molester.

    • Yes, being gay doesn’t make one a pedophile. I don’t think anyone is making that argument. What makes one a pedophile is repeatedly touching his son’s penis, getting into bed with him inappropriately, and molesting his daughter (who now self-harms as a result of the abuse). This was documented by healthcare facilities in their interviews w the children, the children’s interviews also corroborate each other’s story in those interviews. The gay porn would not at all be problematic, everyone has free choice over if they choose to watch porn and the type of porn viewed. In Ambrose’s case, the type of porn viewed is problematic and very likely ties in with the abuse reported by his son in particular. You cannot tell me that if this man frequents a porn site that promotes itself as one that features porn images of fathers raping their underage sons [www.mygaycash.com/Bringmeaboy].

      The site promoted itself: “In the deepest recesses of our hearts, some of us yearn to be Daddies to good little boys even if they are only our stepsons. Join us at Bring Me A Boy as we explore tight, smooth bodies then stretch tight holes or smear cum on their faces. Let us corrupt, the pretty little things which we call son.”

      Given this seems to be his porn of choice, Ambrose has sexual desires that include FATHERS RAPING UNDERAGE SONS and yearns to be a daddy to good little boys.

      I can assure you that this predator’s preferred sexual fantasies have manifested with his son, since his son has reported on three different occasions he has been molested ongoing by his father.

      The type of porn is absolutely relevant in this case

      • Hate to break it to you all, but porn involving people 18 and older is legal.

        People who hate the freedoms we have in America should move to Afghanistan and enjoy Taliban rule.

        • But you are STILL missing the point. Yes, porn involving 18 and older is legal (but in some instances those in these films are not always 18) but it’s beside the point. Any MAN who’s preferred porn and thereby sexual fantasies are that of a FATHER RAPING THEIR SON is one twisted soul and likely shouldn’t have children. It shocks the consciousness that this would be anyone’s preference of porn or sexual fantasy but when you add that to his son’s claims of abuse, it is ABSOLUTELY RELEVANT and in my opinion bolsters the sex abuse claims made by the children, particularly the SON. Luckily, the son hasn’t had all the sick acts described by this site perpetrated on him YET and I hope Law enforcement makes certain that the abuse doesn’t go further. Keep in mind this boy is nearly a teen and has made these abuse claims so there’s no doubt in my mind he’s telling the truth. No pre-teen boy would say these things about his father if untrue. Add to it that his father likes porn depicting grown men abusing ‘boys’ and in my opinion, it’s clear he’s guilty of this disgusting crime. Lastly, never in my life would I thought I would have to explain this reasonable rationale to someone defending watching porn that’s intended to depict child abuse. SMH

          • Fortunately, the judge has a far better grasp of the rules of inference than you do.

            Would you kindly pick me a 5-gallon tub of mayo to match yours at Walmart today?

            Thank you!

          • Could you please use more all caps when you write?

            That really makes you seem more credible and not a country bumpkin on a gay-hating religious rights crusade.

      • that demands justice and I’m glad you’ve had the balls to write this story. Like so many other readers/commenters here, I come for the NXIVM train wreck but I might just stay here until there is justice for these children. Every regular reader of this blog should be equally as outraged and I’m frankly surprised few of them have said much on the topic. Like NXIVM, this is a community, social justice and criminal issue but far, far worse when you consider who the victims are, children.

  • What a disgrace. This seems to be the same court that in truth should be held partially responsible for the murder of Jennifer Dulos by her abusive husband. Frank, have you contacted the New York Times or Hartford Courant to cover this? Can we begin a letter writing campaign and should it be to the judge?

  • This is an outrageous story. I am so aggrieved for these children and mothers. While I do relish the idea of the FBI intervening, what else be might be done in the meantime?

    As a footnote to this story, although this man may be a homosexual, he is clearly a pedophile. They are not synonymous.

  • Stop picking on Ambrose. Wiser heads than you have decided that Ambrose is the right person to have the children. It’s done.

    He may be a pedophile. He may be abusive to the children but the more you attack him the worse it is for the children.

    He will take it out on them.

    It’s already pretty bad for them already but the decision is made. He gets the kids So leave them alone.

    The mother lost her kids. Is she too old to get pregnant and have more kids ? She could adopt other kids if she is too old.

    Now leave Ambrose alone. The kids are his.

    As for the mother – if you lose your kids it’s always possible to get other children. But there is only one Connecticut Family Court and they have decided the father knows best.

    Leave Chris Ambrose alone.

    • To think anyone would leave this alone – the fact of the matter is that people on Chris Ambrose’s payroll made the decisions to leave the children with him, evidence of abuse be damned. It’s essentially the definition of injustice and possibly criminal.

  • Great work, Frank. With you on their side, there’s hope the injustice will shift. That he’s removed the children to an isolated spot named Hemlock Hill couldn’t be more Dickensian. Horrifying.

  • That this has been allowed to go on and, most shocking, is that the abuse claims were swept under the rug by the GAL. How can law enforcement turn a blind eye to this? It’s difficult to even read and I feel terribly for the children and the mother having to actually live this nightmare.

  • Because the Connecticut Family Court didn’t take coercive control (psychological, legal, or financial abuse) seriously, it became a tool for my abuser to use to abuse and maintain control over my children and me. My ex was allowed to play the court system year after year, even after judges and attorneys admitted to knowing he was lying. It didn’t matter, as long as he had the money to keep it going. In the end, he forced me into mediation with a judge who was forced off the bench, Lynda Munro. I did everything in my power to not allow this mediation to happen but if I didn’t do what I was told, I would lose my children.

    I need to keep this post anonymous. I have lost almost everything. I cannot turn to the court system for help or justice. I live every day hanging onto my security in life by a thread. I am afraid to speak. I am not allowed to work. If I go back to work, I’m not allowed to see my kids. I am absolutely controlled every day of my life. It’s a living hell caused by the court system. I hope and pray somebody can do something to stop it so other people don’t have to live like this ever.

        Coercive control is not a myth.

        Coercive control is wholly its own thing and separate from brainwashing with the exception of a few parallels.

        Definition of Coercive Control:
        “Domestic abuse isn’t always physical. Coercive control is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim.”

        If it were legal, I could teach you “coercive control” is not a myth. There is not a man or woman on planet earth, who can’t be broken. It only takes time.

Parlato has appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
