Huh? Hello. Welcome to ESMB. What is a POC? What's going on?
There's already a thread up about you, see the other thread for accumulated advice
I've asked the Mods to merge them
So I sit here on my hands relying on other people and lawyers to move chess pieces in slow motion... Fighting with words and lies is not my jam... Hence the emotional abuse...
From up-thread, I noted that one thing you could do was make a case to the boss of your ex-step-mother who is head of DSA Vancouver that perhaps it would be best all around if he could convince her to let you have custody of your son.
That would be
"Director of Special Affairs East US,
care/of Church of Scientology New York,
227 W 46th St New York, NY 10036"
Be sure to be calm, rational, and ESPECIALLY non-threatening. Let him know that his subordinate apparently has been using Church resources in this issue, to interfere with custody of your son. Assure him that all you want is your son, and you will go away and not bother Church of Scientology any more once you have custody.
Apparently, your wife is deeply involved. Your son would be a distraction to that involvement, and once you have him, then she can be as dedicated a full-time staff member as she wants. She would even be free to re-marry another Scientologist (guys are less likely to want a woman who presents him with another man's kid to support, than a woman who is unencumbered).
Scientology is used to dealing with lawyers, and they are experts at causing the other side to spend money on lawyers until the other side runs out of money. Go outside their experience. And they dislike negative publicity.
Anybody here got a way to contact Leah Remini? I think this case might make an excellent segment for her series.
(Super condensed version)
I'll do a quick intro... My names Ash... I was forced onto staff when I was 8 or 9... I realised at the tender age of 12 that Scientology was crazy...
I got home, my mother said something about a beautiful and nice girl that wanted to meet me... I had zero interest... I was the happiest I had ever been, in a career I wouldn't trade for anything in the world... I never wanted marriage or kids... So, I had no interest...
She knocked on the door... She was wearing skin tight running attire (My brother said she was a "Honey Pot",
We got married... In the f*cking Org! I was annoyed... She, cleaned out my savings for the wedding... I had no friends there... It was all Scientologist and family... I was beyond annoyed... My brothers told me to get rid of her just before I got married... But, she was my crypto-night... Still is...
My mother got her on course... Then another... and another... "A" dropped school... Got an office job... The end started...
But, after tell my Ex I was being sent for SAS selection, she said "That's great, but you'll never see me or your son again"... She wanted us to be a "Power house Scientology couple" and what I wanted didn't matter...
In 2012 I returned home from Afghanistan... I had money in the bank... I spoilt her and my parents... gave em huge chunks of money for Christmas, and took them on trips, spending thousands on em... Tens of thousands... My parents couldn't make rent a lot of months... So I bailed em out... Buuuuut, they were able to afford donating over $30,000 to the Org... They received a brick for the Ideal Org donations... As a reward I guess... Well done... Muppets...
My missus was happy until 2013... Almost 2014... I still wasn't working, and my savings was drying up...
It has been my experience that until custody is established, if there is a legal challenge to the Scientologist seeking custody, in general, the Church of Scientology will not legally back the Scientologist staff member in court, but instead, stays out of it except through their internal kangaroo proceedings.
I really wouldn't get into the personal aspects of your marriage on the net if I were you ... I'd keep things very simple but with laser like focus on what matters ... ie you want full/part custody of your son, which is your absolute right as his Father.
The cult and it's crazy policies have zero relevance in the real world ... but let it be known that they are being used against you, shout that to anyone who will listen ... they don't appreciate bad PR in that hateful cult.
I realise that you are probably not wanting advice (especially from people that you don't know) but I would delete that post ASAP (number 18 below) and stay well above all the "he said/she said" ... I don't believe it will help (you) to splash that around, I do know how hard it can be but remain 100% respectful of your wife, she may use whatever you say against you ... so give her nothing to fight back against ... attack the cult, not your wife or parents, your little boy will probably thank you for it later.
You have 24 hours after posting to delete a post (or alter it) ... obviously you must do what you feel is best but if you do delete it I will delete this when I next log in (and I expect others will do the same or perhaps a mod would assist to remove anything you decide you'd prefer deleted).
I wish you all the very best with this ... and I hope you don't take offence at my suggestion.
