Corrupt CT Family Court: Money-Driven Results Lead to Trafficked Children Deprived of Contact With Mother, Ambrose Case Set Again for Trial Before Judge Adelman

We intend to prove CT Family Court is a hotbed of child trafficking.

In the present case, there is a conspiracy by Judges Gerald Adelman, Jane Grossman, and Thomas Moukawsher; attorneys Nancy Aldrich, Jocelyn Hurwitz, Edward Nusbaum, William Brown and Richard Callahan; therapists Jessica Biren Caverly, William Horn, Robert Horwitz, Deborah Gruen and others – all of whom are wetting their beaks in the never-ending game of Connecticut Family Court – and selling children to the highest bidder, which means granting custody to the parent with money– usually the father.

In short, the child trafficking occurs with the movement of children for money – based on lawyers and therapists making money.

The usual plan is to set up a high conflict divorce case – where attorneys and therapists make money – and, with the judges’ complicity, hand exclusive custody [usually] to the father, leaving the mother and her children in a land of no contact.

What do the judges get? The support of the attorneys and therapists in their quest for reappointment and possibly other, under the table, benefits.

It is friends helping friends, associates doing what is necessary for all [except the children and mothers] to be happy.

Frank Report hopes to prove criminal intent and all the other elements of child trafficking and RICO, which is running rampant in Connecticut family court.

A good place to start is the remarkable, high-conflict divorce and custody case of former TV writer Chris Ambrose [“former” because he was fired for plagiarism] versus his wife, stay-at-home mother, Karen Riordan, [formerly a teacher with two masters’ degrees]. The case is back before the court of corrupt Judge Gerald Adelman – at 9:30 AM on Wednesday, February 16th, in Middletown, CT.

The judge previously ruled that the couple’s three children may not speak or see their mother. The father has the money.

Chris Ambrose wants nothing to do with his wife. Nor does he want his children to ever see their mother.

In November, Judge Adelman, challenged by Riordan’s attorney, Nickola Cunha, for bias, called for a hearing over whether he should be recused, and a mistrial declared. It was a fancy set up to get rid of the pesky attorney.

Judge Thomas Moukawsher held a hearing to review the evidence of Adelman’s purported bias. Unsurprisingly, Judge Moukawsher found none. Moukawsher, however, decided that Cunha lied to him and disbarred her without a trial. That’s right: Moukawsher served as prosecutor, judge, and jury regarding Nikola Cunha’s right to practice law.

Cunha is no longer a licensed lawyer, her career shattered. Cunha is appealing Moukawsher’s heavy-handed, one-sided decision to protect his fellow judge by disbarring her.

This won’t end here.

Nickola Cunha

Meantime, the mother, Karen Riordan, is without an attorney, as well as 46 other clients of Cunha’s in similar circumstances, many in the morass of notorious Connecticut Family Court, many of them mothers who had been cut off from their children by this same vicious, money-driven court. Cunha had taken on many cases where the Connecticut Family Court had awarded sole custody of children to well-heeled fathers.

A remarkable turn of events: Judge Thomas G. Moukawsher disbarred Karen Riordan’s attorney after her filing for a mistrial based on the bias of fellow judge Gerald Adelman

Prior to the disbarment of Cunha, she repeatedly pressed for in-person court appearances in the trial of Ambrose versus Riordan.

Judge Adelman always decided to conduct them remotely. Today, however, Judge Adelman is – now that Riordan has no attorney – demanding the trial be conducted in person, requiring Riordan to appear, though she has no attorney, has no funds to hire an attorney, and has COVID.

She does not have money for food or travel either since Ambrose took control of all their marital assets prior to filing for divorce in 2019 and has not paid court-ordered monthly spousal payments since September 2021. [For the record – while Ambrose has blown through more than a million in marital assets, which, after all, should have been half her money, he has only made four spousal payments to Riordan. But the Connecticut Family Court follows the Golden Rule: i.e., Ambrose has the gold, so he rules.]

The most significant aspect of the case is the ongoing cruelty to the children, as the attorneys and therapists profit.

Please keep in mind that this gaggle of thieves – the therapists and the lawyers – handed custody to the father. Had they not done so, none of these ragged rascals would have made any money on this case.

If you don’t understand that, you will not understand why the children are being denied contact with their perfectly good and loving mother – much to their loneliness and despair.

If the mother got custody, the father would not have paid a dime to the attorneys and therapists. Since he, the unfit parent, has custody and the mother is fighting – he has to continue to pay – and pay – and pay.

Still, it is a bargain for him since he is using his wife’s share of the marital funds – and it will be cheaper than child support and alimony and splitting the marital assets.

Judge Adelman has continued an order initially issued by Judge Jane Grossman on April 24, 2020, that required the children’s mother to have no contact with her children for a limited time period.

But the isolation has, thus far, proved unlimited. To date, the children have been isolated from their mother for 663 days.

Judge Moukawsher took away Riordan’s lawyer. Judge Grossman took away her children and Judge Adelman is now commanding her to appear in person [This is the same Judge Adelman that never enforced his court order that Ambrose pay spousal support].

The justification for depriving children of their mother and placing them with their father – despite their wishes to the contrary – the children are 15, 15, and 11 and should obviously have a say in where they live – is a custody evaluation report by a psychologist known for findings that mirror whatever the Guardian ad Litem [who recommends her] wants, which in Connecticut means, following the Golden Rule, that whoever has more gold rules and the higher the conflict the more the gold and hand custody to the father with the money [unless the mother has money, then hand custody to her.].

Guardians ad litem [GALs] are attorneys paid by the hour. The more conflict, the more hours they bill.

In this case, the GAL is notorious Jocelyn Hurwitz of Cohen and Wolf.

Jocelyn Hurwitz has billed more than $180,000 by stoking the fires of conflict between Chris Ambrose and his wife, Karen Riordan. By recommending custody be given to the wealthy father, she has ensured that the billings will go on forever because the mother will never quit fighting to get her children back.

In her custody evaluation, a report so flawed it is tantamount to malpractice and has been condemned by a peer’s review, Jessica Biren-Caverly, a psychologist, made a diagnosis that Riordan has an unspecified personality disorder [which does not exist in the DSM-V or anywhere].

There is no such disorder known to medical science, but it was enough for the court of Adelman and Grossman.

This was accepted by their court as dispositive – an unprincipled and dishonest custody evaluator, paid by the father, who decides without evidence that the mother has some kind of mental disorder – but cannot even specify what kind of disorder it is.

Caverly has no professional standing to make a medical diagnosis in the first place. She is not a psychiatrist but a psychologist. Not only that, Caverly was not providing therapy for Riordan but only met with her briefly as part of her custody evaluation.

Based on this, and the controversial practice of isolating children from one parent, based on “parental alienation,” the theory that if children prefer one parent over the other – even if their reasons are valid [like one parent is abusive], it means the other parent is alienating the children. It is a great tool for Connecticut Family Court’s child traffickers.

The remedy for parental alienation is to take children away from the parent they want to be with and place them exclusively with the parent they do not like. Nine times out of 10, parental alienation is employed to take children away from mothers and give them to [affluent] fathers, based on recommendations of the GAL and custody evaluators  – who are, as they were in this case, paid by the father.

In this case, the children made it clear they do not trust their father. After almost two years away from their mother – they continue to reach out to anyone, including this writer –  to say how their father is cruel to them and how often he lies; things he says that they know are untrue, have prompted them to call him “P” – which stands for Pinocchio.

Sometimes it seems to his children that all he does is lie.

They have posted on social media, crying out to the world that they miss their mother. Yet the cruelty continues. No contact with the mother by order of the court – supported by the GAL and the custody evaluator.

For no reason other than the influence of money – Ambrose has money because he took all the marital funds – more than $2 million – out of Riordan’s reach and paid for the custody evaluation and, to date, most of the GAL’s fees – the two women who recommended that he alone have custody of the children.

Chris Ambrose has his children in isolation at his rural Connecticut home.

A woman who was a stay-at-home mother, who gave every day of her life to her children for more than 13 years, was outsmarted and deceived by a husband who used the corrupt Connecticut Family Court system, that sinister, awful den of injustice where money buys custody, and made his children miserable and his wife desolate of all she had known.

Now, Riordan has no attorney. She filed motions pro se to try to not lose her children forever in the court of Adelman.

By glancing at these, one sees how she is up against a stacked deck.

Karen Riordan

Ambrose has failed to disclose what he did with $2 million of the marital assets.

Riordan told the judge: “[Ambrose] has not disclosed the disposal of marital assets, children medical records, source of income, desires of the children, nor copies of financial statements.”.

Judge Gerald Adelman

Judge Adelman denied the motion, asking that Ambrose be honest and disclose what happened to the money, she rightfully owns half of. He ruled, “The alleged failure to disclose is a proper issue for cross examination.”

Riordan told the court she is suffering from COVID, preventing her from attending court in person.

Adelman ruled that she must submit medical documentation. “The lack of the attendance by the defendant [Riordan] may result in orders being issued without her testimony and evidence. As noted by the defendant in her own pleadings the custody issue must be resolved for the benefit of the three minor children.”

Riordan thought the judge, who denied the children of their mother, making such a brazen statement such as that he has the slightest concern about the children, children he has never met, was a mockery, an insult to justice.

She made a motion for the judge to rule on whether it is in the best interest of the children to be isolated from their mother, whether “662-day forced isolation of the children from mother and extended family is in their best interests.”

Judge Adelman denied the motion.

But the conflict prompted something novel. After three years of dodging any disclosure, Ambrose filed a financial affidavit, something required prior to trial. It contained a false statement, perhaps more than one, but the one which is provably false is that Ambrose claimed he was paying spousal support [coming from Riordan’s own marital money, which he covertly took prior to the commencement of the divorce proceedings.].

Karen filed  a notice of non compliance, perjury.

“Plaintiff has filed a perjured financial affidavit…  he states he is paying $1,038 a week in spousal support, which he has not paid since September 2021; he further states a weekly income of $571 against expenses of $4,558 a week, for which no source of funds is specified for paying such expenses.”

Adelman denied the motion, ruling, “The veracity of the plaintiff’s financial affidavit is properly developed by cross examination of the plaintiff.”

Riordan challenged the judge’s decision, making another motion concerning Ambrose’s perjury,  claiming that Ambrose’s financial affidavit is fraught with lies. Ambrose has been “concealing funding of… expenses [after all he claims he has $4500 plus in weekly expenses yet earns only $571 per week – meaning he is using the joint marital assets to pay his expenses – while not paying any spousal support to Riordan]  claims no payments from IRAs, while listing a joint account (Bruce Funds) for which [Riordan[] has no access, claims liabilities of $61k for [his attorney Nancy] Aldrich’s legal fees for which no invoices are disclosed nor in evidence with the court, he claims $73k GAL fees [for Hurwitz] which are not in evidence before the court.” {Hurwitz promptly filed her bill].

Adelman denied the motion.

The trial set to resume today puts Riordan at a severe disadvantage. After her attorney Cunha was disbarred, Riordan lost access to her own files. The disbarment order of Judge Moukawsher appointed a trustee to take over Cunha’s files and the trustee has not shared any of her files with Riordan.

Riordan filed another notice.

“The court appointed trustee, under orders from [Judge Thomas ] Moukawsher J, has tied up the undersigned’s files… claiming possession by order of Moukawsher.”

Judge Adelman said he would hear the matter of her not having the files at the trial today after she appears, even if she has COVID.

Frustrated, Riordan made a motion to disqualify Adelman, daring to use very direct language about the injustice she perceived. She accused him of “misconduct in failure to ensure proper disclosures of financial information [of Ambrose] …  Adelman’s game to proceed in trial for pointless, meritless litigation to argue over blatant lies in defendant’s FA [financial affidavit] demonstrates judicial bias & prejudice, lack of impartiality, instantly disqualifying the errant judge under Canon Rule 2.11…. Adelman’s lack of impartiality, unfaithfulness to the law, and blatant abandonment of office requires his disqualification by Canon.”

Adelman denied the motion.

Riordan challenged Adelman, seeking clarification writing “Broad discretion of the family court does not extend to voiding statutes by whim.”

Adelman granted the motion but put it off until after the trial is complete.

Karen challenged Adelman on his decision to wait until the end of trial.

“The court is asked to address constitutional principles which do not turn on competing opinions of errant judges, an unscrupulous court vendor [Hurwitz], or a vindictive father paying attorneys over a quarter of a million dollars for abuse of process.

Riordan also again notified the court that she cannot attend the trial in person since she has COVID, adding “If the court has legal necessity for medical documentation, a proper subpoena may issue and serve.”

Judge Adelman continued to demand medical proof of Riordan having COVID, writing “Medical documentation is required for the court to consider your request for a continuance. It is your request and your obligation to provide the necessary documentation. The defendant is reminded once again that her failure to appear will not delay the trial any longer.”

Jocelyn Hurwitz 

Meantime Hurwitz put in her bill  possibly to pressure the court to require payment from Riordan.

It was Hurwitz who was instrumental in depriving the children of their mother.  She has been paid $46,213.25 by Riordan, all of that being taken out of proceeds of the sale of the marital home, which was sold against her wishes. Ambrose has voluntarily paid Hurwitz $68,013.25 to date.

Now, Hurwitz seeks an additional $25,616.84 from Ambrose and $47,416.84 from Riordan.

At $93,629, Hurwitz wants a pretty penny from Riordan for recommending her children be taken from her.

In all fairness, Ambrose got the better deal. For the same amount of money as Riordan is being asked to pay, Ambrose got exclusive custody of his children – as recommended to the court by Hurwitz.

Stay tuned. There is much more to report on this story.

  • I feel bad for the children that this judge has the power to dish out these ridiculous orders. I understand stand how this mother feels because my son got killed by a hit and run driver. It’s the worst pain there is not to be able to see your children. Also disbarring attorney n.chuna for doing what’s right — and, on top of that, calling her a liar when they’re the corrupt liars. I just hope to God she gets her license back because lots of people need her.

  • For those of us horrified and victimized by this, please report facts. Name calling takes away the credibility of the argument.

  • This is all so disgusting! I can’t even wrap my head around it. I know the family personally and know Karen to be a good person and mother. Get her kids back to her NOW!!

  • Hey, Chris, did NBC have to pay out over 1 million dollars in lawsuits for your behavior with young males? I heard they turned your laptop over to the feds

    • Investigate Ambrose’s Eyes Above Production company. Its no writing/film company.
      Attorneys for Ambrose and Riordan made sure no financial disclosure! Covering up his nefarious “business”. Suddenly he dissolved his 16 year company and judges cover for the creep.

  • Like Karen, I haven’t seen my kids in 841 days. I am in Middletown. What is worse is that the GAL, the custody evaluator, the plaintiff and his attorney had and shared my personal medical information. In fact, the GAL shared it directly with the plaintiff. Improper court procedure: look up 42 CFR 2.64. This is the procedure – it didn’t happen. Also, my ex got an ex parte order, but a hearing on it has not been held since October 30, 2019. My personal health, mental health, and alcohol testing results have been shared freely and used in courts in Nassau and Suffolk counties in NY for TROs against me.

    I know Ambrose is famous, but I was a high school English teacher, and this is another case that is almost identical on the major issues. My kids were 12 and 13 the last time I saw them in person. I missed all of those mother-daughter moments. I don’t even know what she looks like.

    • It does seem identical. The pattern is known. We’re you at RTFD? Who was your judge? Custody evaluator? Attorneys? Please post. If too threatened, contact Frank directly with info on your case. Their time has come to end child abuse by CT courts.

      • It was not an RTFD but just a regular, drawn out trial. At one point last July, Addleman heard a status conference and basically between the guardian ad litem and him, Addleman ordered me to sign disclosures for all of my medical/therapist records. When I talked to my doctors, they gave me language to limit the disclosure. The GAL didn’t like it, so she made application in open court.

        I am pro se and working on appeal – I am afraid, because this case actually has criminal elements. I discussed this with an investigator in the prosecutor’s office in Middletown.

        Frank, please reach out to me.

    • There is never an allegation or finding of abuse by mothers like you. Sandra MacVicar had her children taken. Middletown RFTD is a court created to traffic children, and Adelman was put there for that purpose.

      Frank, please post Adelman’s hearing for reappointment in 2017. Diane Hart spoke – I believe she has recently died of a broken heart for what Adelman did to her and her children. Paige Styvan, and countless other parents spoke, and gave witness impact statements.

      Adelman LIED to William Tong and real leaders like Senator Gary Whitfield, and Representatives Minnie Gonzales and Edwin Vargas spoke out against Adelman. More importantly, they were the few three who STOOD UP for our Children and mothers!

      Adelman lied and they checked the records and proved he lied. Yet the cowards still confirmed his reappointment. He lets the money flow and STEALS the money from mothers – leaves them destitute and homeless because the lawyers, judges, reunification therapists and all the other bs titles that aren’t needed, are hired to extend litigation and drain the family savings.

      It is a criminal enterprise. The AFCC in CT was disbanded because of illegal conflicts of interest. Still, the AFCC teaches and promotes how to racketeer and traffic our children.

      Stay strong. You’re not alone.

        • No…the correct acronym is HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) — which is why our auto-correct made the change. I know a lot of people think it’s “HIPPA” but it’s not.

      • Working on it. Every time I read the transcripts of my case, every time I read another case – I am traumatized over and over. This is a very overwhelming task – and emotionally exhausting. I have to get this right. If anyone knows a lawyer in CT that can help, please let me know. My children didn’t deserve this!!

  • Two words, adelman, you effing loser: case law. ever heard of it?? congratulations. you could successfully direct a soap opera. now. how about you get back to the LAW, and start using it. btw, where’s your oath of office? you know, the one you took a huge steaming shit on? yup. rendered it useless. case law. try it.

    • Case law? What’s that??? CT family courts don’t let that nonsense slow them down. Just read Adelman and Grossman’s orders. They’re 100% judicial discretion. So, what happens when the discretion of the judges has criminal intent? Oh, that’s right, there is no oversight on family court judges and GALs are actually immune!! Imagine that. So, you can destroy the lives of children, fracture families forever, lie to the court, bury evidence that doesn’t suit your objective and then you are completely immune. Wow. How long do they really think they will get away with this before these parents stage a mutiny??

  • This whole thing is a sham. This fat slob of a father has been a detriment to these children. A child should never be taken away from their mother unless their well-being is in danger. The fact that they escaped from the father’s custody to be back with their loving mother, obviously proves my point. These children are old enough to be interviewed by a neutral professional and be placed with the parent (Karen Riordan) that they desire to be with. Paying off Judges and other powerful professionals in this care is absolutely disgusting and has done irreparable damage to these poor kids.

    • Silencing the children is essential. That’s what the GALs are for! No-contact is a must or kids will tell all— 15, 15 and 11.

      Against all laws and endorsed by judges.

    • I would like to follow up on your “fat slob” comment. Ambrose sure does closely resemble the Pillsbury dough boy now, right?!! A major health shift since he began this orchestrated crime. What would you say, Chris?? 50 lbs??? At least. That’s what happens when you take a dark path. Or maybe you would like to blame that on your ex too? The one that is homeless and penniless now, locked out of her home and separated from her babies. She must be causing all this stress on poor you, right?? Karma is about to bitch-slap you. Get ready.

  • Connecticut Family Court is by far the most corrupt court in the country.

    Unfortunately, this case is quite similar to other cases in CT where children and mothers are denied any relationship when it comes to divorce only because of money. Typically in CT, the one holding the bank account wins in court. There is no win for children in these cases. In fact, the children are the ones that will suffer the most; sometimes their entire life will be affected by orders from a CORRUPT COURT.

    Children are ripped from loving caring fit parents as the greedy court actors know money is involved and they will make a pretty penny as long as they can continue to bill the other parent, despite how much it is hurting children.

    The loss of a child to a parent is devastating! The loss of a child to the corruption of the court is devastating to a parent as the parent grieves the loss of their living child/children as they lose all contact. These children who, through no fault of their own, are grieving the loss of their parent (most often mothers). They will never be the same.

    The court has taken her children, an unbearable loss. The court then takes her money and her attorney.

    Absolutely deplorable. Disgusting evil people running a court of “LAW”.

    • I believe family court is a court of “equity”, not a court of law which appears to be part of the problem. Force a jury on these corrupt courts and it is game over. But our legislators think it is more important to enact Title IV and incentivize these judges to do more of the same. Hmm. Makes you wonder what we are looking at here.

  • When does Adelman get hit by a bus? Is this guy in hiding? He should be concerned to be seen in public. What if a peaceful protest breaks out when he is in the grocery store?

  • Jew cunt Jocelyn Hurwitz has billed $200k to uphold isolation of kids from mom, kept in a cage by demented, homo, pedo, Chris Ambrose. Jew Jocelyn, Jew Judge Adelman, Jew Attorney Nancy Aldrich, Jew Dr. Jessica Caverly …. see a pattern here?

  • Christopher Ambrose claims an income of $570 a week, with expenses of $4800 a week, shows no source of funds to make up the difference, but Adelman accepts this as fact. Is Ambrose pimping out the kids for cash? Suspicious activity? Pedo ring funding? More jews involved?

    • Your argument is weakened by blaming this all on Jews. I have heard a lot of this lately. This is about money – not the Jewish heritage of faith.

  • I heard about this case two years ago and the absurdity of it, and have been following it ever since. The State of Connecticut, as well as the Governor, should be held accountable, at the same level as all of the judges and attorneys involved. However, exposing these atrocities at any level brings the entire system down, so they are all going to simply hunker down and use their powers to attack anything and everything in their own self defense. This whole scenario should never have been allowed to happen, and speaks volumes about the negative qualities of the vision and character of the State of Connecticut. WHY would the voices of children EVER be silenced???
    I hope this case is resolved soon; that the children are reunited with their mother; that those involved are properly prosecuted; and that the entire system is restructured to prevent any further similar cases of court system abuse.

    • SS, you are confused. The governor is in on raping children, it is the Jewish delicacy of Corrupticut. Realize what the state is all about raping children and stealing money. Lamont is a Jew and a communist.

      • I don’t support anti-Semitism and will redact excessive reference to it. I understand you are saying that most of the bad actors here happen to be Jewish, but their actions have nothing to do with Judaism. It has to do with greed and cheating. They are not synonymous.

        • Frank, you need to study history. What is going on in family court is straight out of the Talmud. Rabbinical courts and treatment of the goy. Destruction of the sacrament of marriage and destruction of the family is the work of the anti-Christ, and jews do not support Christianity. The conduct of Adelman, Solomon, Heller, Wetstone, Gold, Pincus, Katz, Peters, Borden … is all rooted in being a Jew, the chosen ones to rule over goy families and their four-legged calves.

          • Give me evidence of this. I think what is happening in Family Court has everything to do with money, nothing to do with being Jewish. Maybe more to do with being lawyers and therapists.

        • Oh boy! There’s that Jewish coined term, “anti-semitism“!

          Either be a philo-semite or get your free speech raped from you! It’s like they say,

          “claim the federal banks are evil and are conspiring together to destroy America, then you’ll be called a ‘conspiracy theorist’! *NAME* the people who own the banks and involved in the conspiracy and despite the MOUNTAINS of evidence including their own words to prove it, they’ll still pick up their proverbial torches and pitch forks against you for the crime of being an ‘anti-semite’”!

          You heard him! Jews can do no wrong! Neither can blacks, Mexicans, or any other race except white people!

          Nothing to see here! 🙄

          Just shut up or Franklin Stalin will send you into a virtual gulag! 🤫

          If you need help suing the living shit out of Ginzo for his lack of care about your 1st amendment rights, I’m here!

          ✊🏻 THERE’S A BETTER WAY!!!!! ✊🏻

    • Adelman hates mothers, he hates his own mother, the guy is a total ass, who has a [redacted] mental defect, with insatiable desire to inflict pain and suffering on mothers and children. Adelman is proud of himself; in his sick twisted mind, he has a chosen duty to destroy others.

  • How is it that a divorce about trumped up “parental alienation” can result in the courts essentially alienating the children from the other parent? So…we solve the “problem” by doing what is detrimental to the children. Disgusting, unethical and illegal. Apparently legality is not a concern of the CT family courts. Obviously money is at the root of it all. I am thankful I was poor when I went through my own divorce. The question becomes …what recourse does this mom and children have?

  • This whole story has been absolutely heartbreaking to follow. There’s so much injustice for mothers who only want to protect their children. How did our court systems ever get so turned around???

  • Money-monger GAL Jocelyn Hurwitz shuts down anyone who advocates for kids and silences kids’ wishes. Bugsy case- Ripped two girls from mother – they could speak for themselves but Hurwitz delivered them solely to father. No-contact with mother that raised them. Sandra McVicar- healthy, loving mother and teacher- Hurwitz relentlessly disparaged mother and abused two girls who begged to be with their mother- denying them the love of mom who raised them.

        • I believe the reason has to do with Judge Adelman’s overreach – as his primary function in handling this case.

        • Covid is a distraction. The court:
          Took her money, took her children and took her attorney mid-trial- on a trial that’s lasted for a year.

          He never filed financial affidavit. Follow the money but in this case she can’t because the lawyers and judges don’t want the money trail exposed! It will reveal how much Ambrose had to pay for his court ruling!

        • Court took her money, her kids and her attorney- all without a trial.

          But she’s the villain bc she won’t give judge the Covid results? It’s nothing to do with Covid.

          More distraction Where’s the money???

          And why the fuck isn’t the judge concerned with 600 days of children having no contact with a parent?

          They are successful. No one is thinking about the children. It becomes about a Covid test in what is a divorce and custody case.

  • The mother’s attorney was DISBARRED for challenging blatant bias by the presiding Judge? None of this sounds remotely ethical, much less legal. Clearly, the Judge and other bad actor officers of the Court are extremely confident that no one can do anything about this injustice and it seems like they are right so far.

    • You are totally correct, once caught up in the discretionary web of tyrannical rule before Adelman, there is nothing anyone can do. It is … designed … and it works perfectly. Nothing can help mom or the kids.

    • Jews destroy their enemies. Anyone calling out CONNECTICUT FAMILY COURT for being a den of JEWISH thieves raping childhood and stealing money will be crushed.

      • I don’t agree it is a Jewish thing at all. It is a money thing. It is incidental that some of the bad actors are Jewish. Ambrose is not Jewish. Moukawsher is not Jewish. Callahan is not Jewish.

          • Sabbatai – I fear you are jumping to a hasty conclusion because some of the bad actors in this case happen to be Jewish. But if you can provide any evidence I am willing to listen.

        • Frank, the entire design and construction of ‘best interest’ to destroy a family on whim of a moron in a black robe is Jewish.

          NO FAULT divorce is a JEWISH invention. It was introduced by jews in 1917 as part of communism, which is Jewish, it was promoted starting in 1963 in USA by JEWS. You are quite lacking in understanding of religions and their ideologies. You believe 6M jews were exterminated in the showers by order of Hitler…. just what the Jews want you to believe. Good goy you are.

          • This is all stated without evidence. You say No Fault Divorce, “Best Interest of a child,” government control and communism is Jewish. And that 6 million Jews were not killed by Nazis. I would like a little evidence of this before I would accept it – other than your assertion.

  • Frank, why are you censoring comments? It’s costly to file 20+ motions every week. Who is paying for it? Karen allegedly has no money. Is it Paul Boyne? Or Jill Jones Soderman? Things that make you go hmmmm…

    • Not knowing how she is paying for this despite your effort to starve her out has got to be killing you, huh Chris (you loser)??! An army has formed to take you and your court criminals down. Funding is not a problem. Time is running out for you to do the right thing. Tick tock.

      • A well regulated parental militia assembles to save the kids from mad man chris ambrose….will anyone miss him?

      • He comes from a family of men who abuse woman. His brother is a POS too who abused his ex. Big hospital exec he is.

  • “We intend to prove CT Family Court is a hotbed of child trafficking.” Connecticut is a cesspool of corruption as far as the eye can see. If you want to get an instant taste of it, just call the local CT branch of the FBI or try to get police body cam footage that doesn’t come back as “corrupted files”. How ironic is that??! Anyone who thinks for a minute that they are looking at something other than a full-blown RICO operation here is willfully ignorant and complicit for not taking action to stop this.

    “…selling children to the highest bidder meaning granting custody to the parent with money”. Move number one is to lock the “good parent” out of all financial accounts and out of the home (usually the same day). In this story, the mom has plenty of her own money from an inheritance that took place before the marriage, and she was locked out of that money too. Move number two is to never require the “bad” parent to provide a financial affidavit which is the first and most critical requirement of a “normal” divorce proceeding. See the set-up? Then they cut funds off if she doesn’t behave. Bullying 101.

    “What do the judges get?” The judges get Title IV money. Title IV gifts the judges 24% of the child support payments that their court process. So, do you think the judges make more money if they award shared custody or sole custody? Bingo. And 24% of a sole custody child support payment is a massive take over the years.

    • No money to efile a motion. It does cost money to subpoena accountants and to pay for attorneys – which is why they took out Cunha.

      Ambrose never filed a financial affidavit!

      Total set up.

    • Chris, you have made a costly chess game out of your children’s lives, savoring every piece of Karen’s life and rights you knock off the board, but at some point, the gameplay, and your clever strategies, and all your ‘winning’ is going to leave you empty, unloved, alone and despised.

      • Truth. Sad, inevitable truth. But he’s such a psycho he’s probably planning to sell them on the open market as soon this criminal court awards all three kids to this abuser.

  • This is the US in 2022??? They aren’t even hiding any of this corruption. Doing it right in the open and having zero worry that anybody will stop their brazen criminality. Who are the pansy people who are refusing to step in to stop this?

    • Joette Katz says that it is all in the BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN. now shut up and get in the box car, u need a shower.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato 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. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
