AN ANSWER – Regain control with a certified ADAAA advocate to be by your side, another brain to pick youup and put you back on track when the verbal cyclones hit.

Abusers are often coercive controllers setting “perfect
storms” in motion to remove civil rights from the abused.
The abused say, “The court only made it worse.”  “It wasted assets, elevated conflict, created unbearable risk, and stress.”

Men and women lose their basic civil rights by intimate partner injury. The abused become:

  • financially deprived as the abuser commandeers all assets;     
  • isolated and threatened as the fearless abuser widens their audience bolstering their position;
  • invisible tyranny causes invisible injuries like PTSD which when diagnosed qualifies you for ADAAA accommodations;
  • coercive controllers overpower their spouse as they probably have a lawyer and you are possibly pro se allowing them to use the court as a weapon;
  • character slandered creates false and negative perceptions of you in court and community;
  • afraid to invoke the ADAAA for protection due to the outdated myths that it will bias the judge. cost credibility, or worse, custody of children, the abused confirms the helplessness the abuser feeds on;  
  • frozen in a moment, without a voice, you need a strong advocate to step up on your behalf.

THE LEGAL GAME CHANGER is the ADAAA and a trained ADA advocate 
  • is mandated federal protection for PTSD and other illnesses and injuries
  • traumatic stress is a psychic injury NOT a mental illness
  • using the ADAAA is confidential and not to be part of the litigation
  • traumatic stress impairs expressive speech – the advocate is as critical as a foreign language interpreter for litigation
  • Legal abuses must not compound domestic abuses

Without effective advocacy and the ADAAA you are relying on an umbrella in a hurricane.Contact:   -  Dr. Karin Huffer -

Fathers Rights, Court System, Children and families in Florida, falsely accused, assault charges, etc.  What the heck does all of this have to do with Tampa FL Homes anyway?   Well, it all starts like this:

When a house goes up for sale, Did you ever wonder how the sign gets there for a new listing?  The post man of coarse!  Not the postal man, but the "sign-post" man.  That's right it's a contract service, that we as Realtors, pay a third party to install for us.  After all, can you imagine a chic in heels trying to drive a shovel in the ground for a post, then lugging that sucker around to stick in the ground, heck no

So that's where this story begins.  

Going back to my very first listing, I have worked with Petruska's Post, a third party 'post man' named James and his wife (we'll just call her EXWIFE) to help me get that sign up.   James and EXWIFE were like any other American owned small family business, worked hard, had a child, paid taxes, attended Jury Duty, the whole "model citizen" bit.  One day, after several requests to install a new sign post, James didn't respond, EXWIFE wasn't in the office, very unlike themand the many transactions we've previously had.   A little later, with tremor in his voice, I asked James what was wrong, and where he and EXWIFE had been.  

This started the beginning of a new life for this whole family.  James painfully explained the whole story, with tears in eyes and his voice, how EXWIFE his wife of 14 years had falsely accused him of assault, child endangerment, had made many false reports seeking Injunction for Protection, all for spite, and to keep James away from their daughter and start a new life (excluding him), leaving him without any contact, any photos, anything but memories of his daughter.   As if the heart break of a painfully quick divorce was not enough, the accusations (later proving false), he later realized these arrest records, would haunt him forever.  

He was later told by Rhonda Storms and other people in the judicial system, that there is nothing they can do to help him because there is nothing in the FL statues that specifically addresses false DCF (Children and families in Florida) reports.   It seems as though the fair thing to do would have been to expunge those records where James Petruska was falsely accused, and punish those whom make false reports.

Can you imagine how you would feel if you had not seen your daughter (or child) in over 2 years?  As a mother of 3, I would be devastated and heartbroken.   Well this is how James feels.  Listening as a friend, for many many months now, he's gotten tougher!  He went from feeling helpless and heartbroken, to wanting justice!  Fathers should have some rights tooshould they not?

I wrote this post for James, to post his public court hearing video, so that he can share it with the world.  James you know I'm behind you in all of your future endeavors, your heart is there, your soul is good, and your good karma will stay!   Hang in there my friend, and stay strong!  I know that you WILL get to see your daughter soon, I'm just so sorry that you've had to miss so much of her life.
