The parties and their attorney’s shall each immediately contact Dr. Of for the purpose of scheduling and facilitating the visitation previously ordered by the Court.
August 5th, 2011 Honorable Samuel D. Ozburn
On July 14, 2010 a Modification Order was entered by this Court in which the Court ordered that supervised visitation by the child with the Plaintiff be instituted and supervised by Dr. Of “With the goal of establishing a full and open relationship between the Plaintiff and her minor child.”
In this contempt proceeding, the Plaintiff contends that the Defendant has willfully failed and refused to cooperate in scheduling or allowing supervised visitation and is in Contempt of this Court.
Upon receipt of this information, the Court shall enter an Order appointing such a facilitator and establish a time line for the development of a final plan for the commencement of the described visitation for the benefit of the Plaintiff, and The issue of attorney’s fees is reserved.
January 5, 2012 Honorable Samuel D. Ozburn
She, Dr. further recommended that the child be given the option to contact the Plaintiff in the future and that she, could serve as an intermediary to receive and hold letters, e- mails. or other written communication directed to the child from Plaintiff to be given to the child in the future if requested by the child.
The Court finds that Defendant to be in contempt of the final modification order entered in civil action caser number 2009-1226-3 due to his failure to cooperate reasonable with Dr. and Dr. in their efforts to meet with the child to arrange contact between the Plaintiff and the child as directed by this Court. This conduct obstructed their efforts to comply with the orders of this Court.
The minor child shall be informed of this arrangement to enable her to communicate with the Plaintiff if she so chooses.
A Post Office Box shall be opened by the Defendant and made available for the Plaintiff to send correspondence to the minor child.
The Court recognizes the plaintiff’s strong desire to have a full and open relationship between herself and the minor child and the defendant’s desire to protect the child. However, the Court enters this Order to protect the child’s best interests and to hopefully enable the Plaintiff and the child to have contact in the future. The Court encourages the parties to attend some form of family therapy.

(44) pages worth of Case Law and no mention in 20 plus years of any wrong doing on my behalf as a mother nor as a wife to Mr. Sasser
20 plus years of advocacy, care and concern. Sweat, blood and tears have went into play for 5 children and 7 grandchildren to present date 2015.
The flower that blooms in the face of Adversity is the most beautiful of all.
Setting out and attempting to advocate for family violence victims, those parentally alienated, the mentally challenged and parental reunification process over the last 10 plus years in efforts of recognizing the importance of Case Law and changing and making Case Law precedent for all the above aforementioned.
Finally this Halloween I have been able to spend it with my middle daughter Brittany and meet my grandson along with meet 2 of my other grandchildren in efforts of reestablishing the full and loving relationships that once existed as set out and put forth by the Courts even.
All the above mentioned Court hearings and records are of (public record) and can be viewed at anytime by anyone interested in the entire Courts proceedings.
As it has been 2 years since the Courts last Final Order it is now upon me to once again file for Contempt action against Mr. Sasser in efforts to once again find him in Contempt of the Courts Order, Opinion and Wishes and with all his efforts to thwart the relationships of myself with my girls.
Working towards reestablishing a relationship with me and my girls and finding that just as the wildflower blooms in the heart of October and Autumn so does the bond and love between mother and daughter along with the most beautiful flower of all in times of Adversity.
Sharing with my daughter how I have spent the last year with my degree in Paralegal working in the healthcare world as a nursing assistant to the developmentally disabled, the physically disabled, the mentally challenged and the elderly spending the last year advocating for the mentally ill by making application to receive my Certified Peer Specialist Certification through The Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network here in Georgia to work even closer with the mentally challenged as nursing assistant and CPS.
My daughter’s words of wisdom, love, care and concern have been astounding and so uplifting. She has really raised my spirits even during a time of crisis in her own life. Having a heart of gold as we long to form our full, open and loving bond once again with one another.
Continuing to blog of this next Chapter of my life as my youngest is now Sweet 16 and I am most concerned over her well being and the Courts past and present Order, Opinion and Wishes that have never been followed per Mr. Sasser.
