Got an email from a woman whose two children are listed in the resolved section of my site, as abducted by their non-custodial mother and now found. She says she always had custody, the kids’ father abused the system, and she is suing him. She wants me to remove the resolved notice, or she’ll add my name to the lawsuit.
I’ve heard that story many times before. But who knows, her story might be true. My response:
You will, I hope, forgive my skepticism, but I have gotten many similar claims before about other cases. Very few held water. But if the information is really untrue, of course I don’t want it on my site. Could you produce papers or something to support your claim and explain how, if you had full custody, your children were listed as missing and yourself as a parental abductor? I’m not asking for anything confidential, and certainly nothing you wouldn’t have to produce in court anyway, if you did in fact sue me. If you can provide some support, I will promptly remove the children’s resolved notice.
UPDATE: Wow, she actually delivered.
