How to Fight DHR?


How do you fight the Alabama Department of Human Resources? The answer for most, is that you can’t. Why? Because it requires both the know-how and the resources, and those with both are rarely the targets of DHR.

When we first began this blog, we knew little of the workings of DHR. We just assumed that those children taken from their biological parents were guilty of some heinous crimes...and we assumed that was the spurious source of most complaints against DHR.

Why has our opinion of DHR changed over the years? It changed with the realization there is no rhyme or reason to most DHR actions. It changed when we realized that DHR actually profited financially when families were split up. It changed when we saw the abuse close up and personal and realized how many innocent families were hurt.

It certainly changed when we became friends with Mark Davis and witnessed his fight against the system that was supposed to protect his daughter, but in reality has caused her more damage than any child should have to suffer. We frequently post editorials from those involved in these fights. Keep sending them.

We also frequently receive requests for either information on how to fight DHR or perhaps even requests to actually help in this fight. No one who blogs here is an attorney, and rest assured an attorney is what you need. Make sure the attorney is well versed in child custody laws in the state (in other words, don’t use your second-cousin the patent attorney), but is not a part of any local good ol’ boy system. The latter may be harder than you would think.

Someone out there has to have both the stamina, funds, and common sense to force an overhaul of these current laws. Let’s hope it comes soon.

  1. Please do an update on this blog. DHR/CPS are getting worse and worse. Update is absolutely necessary. Please include all of Alabama by county once you have a large following. I live in Lamar County, but was put through an unjust living nightmare from Fayette Co. DHR workers and mngt.

  3. In Lee county Judge fellows has a cash cow going. He targets the people with money to pay. All his cases are decided behind closed doors before they ever start. His favorite psycologist Bridgett Smith is up on charges of ethics violations right now with the board of exanimers. The take in cash on fridays from poor people he has put into slavery is in the ten"s of thousands. The lawyers that go up against him get shutt down. Bradford Ladner in Birmingham found that out fast!!!!
