I had commenced the proceedings to enforce my Custody and Visitation Order, on two separate occasions. The first was heard in May of 2017 and the second was heard in July of 2017. At the July appearance, there was a women in the court room whom I was unfamiliar with. The court had introduced her as Heather Vincent, an attorney that had been assigned to me against my wishes as my “standby council”.
This same assignment of “standby council” was done by the court, almost certainly, to enable the court to means procure something, for the record of the proceeding, that could then be used to abstain from enforcing my custody and visitation order, as I was requesting. The reason that I say “almost certainly”, is because she was appointed as my standby council, and I then subsequently lost. This is in spite of the numerous police reports I had, which demonstrated an egregious violation of my court order.
If my representations were unfounded on their own, appointing an attorney against my wishes would not have been necessary, as I simply could have been left to loose on my own. The court must have had no choice but to enforce my Custody and Visitation order from my request to do so, and thereby realized that they needed to do something such as appoint to me this “standby council”, so that they could then have the means to abstain from my same request for enforcement, through that attorney’s representation(s); made on my behalf, against my wishes, and obviously without just cause.
I’m sure that Onondaga County subsequently found that appointing to me “standby council”, made it a lot easier for them to bring their wishes into reality; so it wasn’t surprising to see that they then did the same thing for my support matter.
I love how it says in the “assignment of council amended”, that the Hiscock Legal Aid has asked to be relieved due to conflict of interest. Who thought that putting this in there would matter? Was that for me to read? What exactly was I supposed to do with that information, take some sort of appeal?
