July 29, 2012 - The Montagus crawl out of the swamp again.

Read the definition below and documents from the court for 2008 on Judgement for Reserved Issues - Montagu v Montagu, Case No. 06D010327, heard by the Honorable Judge Mark S. Millard, presiding.

At Montagu's request the issues were bifurcated, financial issues being determined in 2008 after Montagu ignored the judge's advice and married Laura.

Montagu lost custody of both children, by ruling of the same judge, in August, 2007. Wendy was given both legal and physical custody of the two children. They have resided with her entirely from that day until this.

Laura, in her latest irrational rant, again ignores reality. The likely reason this sudden surfacing of the Montagus occurred is the court date in Las Vegas, which was set for July 18th and is growing ever closer now. Probably makes both of them nervous. It is also possible they depended on financial assistance from Craig Franklin, who is now filling out his stable of 'girls,' as so has less money to spend on this far less satisfying project.

Melinda received an email from Craig and it and the link contained therein are posted on the Craig Franklin & Green Hills Software Site. Samara looks sort of like Laura, though, of course, younger and sexier. Craig generally pays women $5,000 a month to be sexually available to him, according to Anne Fisher, who used to handle his dating site contacts.

Back to Alex Montagu.

Wendy Buford Montagu was awarded legal and physical custody of the two children of her marriage with Alexander Montagu.

Alex, the children's father, was awarded joint legal custody, with visitation, which he chose not to exercise. He has not seen either child for at least three years in one case and four years in the case of the older child, who is now 19 and refuses to have any contact with his father.
Alex, who was found by the court of be hiding assets amounting to over half a million dollars, which he had failed to declare, as required by law, was ordered to pay both alimony and support for the two children.

Alex made precisely one payment of $300 himself. All other support received for the children has come directly from the Manchester Trusts.

Please read the transcript as it is extremely entertaining and is now being used, along with the transcript from Australia, as a play in three acts. 

As to the other issues - read the articles.

Definition from Legal Dictionary
The care, control, and maintenance of a child, which a court may award to one of the parents following a Divorce or separation proceeding.
Under most circumstances, state laws provide that biological parents make all decisions that are involved in rearing their child—such as residence, education, health care, and religious upbringing. Parents are not required to secure the legal right to make these decisions if they are married and are listed on the child's birth certificate. However, if there is disagreement about which parent has the right to make these decisions, or if government officials believe that a parent is unfit to make the decisions well, then family courts or juvenile courts will determine custody.
District and state courts base their decisions on state laws, which vary greatly among states. If a case challenges the constitutionality of a state law or—in rare instances—a state's jurisdiction (i.e., its right to decide the case), then the U.S. Supreme Court may issue an opinion.

Divorced Parents

When custody must be spelled out because of a couple's divorce, the custody arrangement usually becomes part of the divorce decree. The decree names the parent with whom the child will live, how visitation will be handled, and who will provide financial support. Courts consider a custody award to be subject to change until the child comes of age, and in most states proof of a "change in circumstances" may overturn an earlier award. This flexibility is intended to allow for the correction of poor or outdated decisions, but it consequentially enables some parents to wage bitter custody battles that can last for years.
In a typical divorce involving at least one child, permanent physical custody is awarded to the parent with whom the child will live most of the time. Usually, the custodial parent shares joint legal custody with the noncustodial parent, meaning that the custodial parent must inform and consult with the noncustodial parent about the child's education, health care, and other concerns. In such situations, courts may order visitation, sometimes called temporary custody, between the child and the noncustodial parent. A clear schedule with dates and times may be written into the order, or a court may simply state that visitation should be reasonable. Child Support is a common requirement and is paid by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent as assistance in raising the child.
The typical arrangement is subject to some exceptions. Some courts allow parents to retain joint physical custody, in which the child spends equal time with both parents. In California, the Family Code, for example, establishes a presumption that joint custody is in the child's best interest, thus placing joint custody as a preferred option when courts make custody determinations in that state. Cal. Fam. Code. Ann. § 3040 (West 1995). Advocates of joint custody argue that it lessens the feelings of losing a parent that children may experience after a divorce, and that it is fair to both parents. Many courts, on the other hand, resist ordering joint custody if either parent does not want it, due to the high degree of cooperation it requires, especially when the children involved are young or if the parents live a great distance apart, such as in separate states.
Split custody is an arrangement in which the parents divide custody of their children, with each parent being awarded physical custody of one or more children. In general, courts try not to separate siblings when awarding custody.
