DAYTON, Texas – Some of the biological children of a Liberty County woman whose 11 grandkids were removed from her home by CPS last month were speaking out Thursday about why their mother lost custody of them nearly three decades ago.

"To me, this is like an emotional rollercoaster, like an instant replay of a nightmare you thought you forgot," said Kristen Miller, 28, one of Tanda Smith’s biological daughters.

Back in 1986, in Jackson County, Mich., Smith – then known as Tanda Marsh – lost parental rights and custody to Miller and her five siblings.

They were all adopted by other families.

The children claimed to have been whipped with belts and burned with cigarettes if they wet their beds. Court documents reveal that many of the children, ranging in age from 6 months to 8 years old, had bruises on their bodies when CPS took them away.

BANGALORE: Movies voicing the plight of women have been a part of the Indian film fraternity for decades. The small screen too has had its fair share of success with its women-centric soaps, where it mostly dealt with social stigmas that Indian women face. It took all this while for the film industry to come up with a decent topic that voices the haplessness of countless Indian men and their families.

SAN DIEGO – February 21, 2012 – If you smoke cigarettes, by now you have heard all the reasons you should quit: the harm to your health, the expense, the limits on where you can indulge your habit.

How about the possibility of losing custody of your children? Would that motivate you to quit?

If you are involved in a child custody dispute and you are a cigarette smoker, your chance of getting full or even joint custody might go up in smoke.

States are increasingly factoring in cigarette smoking in making decisions about who gets custody of minor children. The group Action on Smoking and Health, an anti-tobacco advocacy group, surveyed custody issues involving cigarettes and tobacco use.

Wedding detectives in India: Investigating future mothers-in-law PDF Print E-mail

New Delhi: At the Hatfield India detective agency, Sherlock Holmes is revered with the respect normally reserved for Hindu gods. The agency’s director, Ajit Singh, wears a pin with Holmes’ picture on the collar of his blue pinstripe jacket, and works beneath the fictional detective’s portrait, next to a pipe posed like a relic on display.

Singh’s investigations, like those of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, require perseverance and discretion, but with a twist. Singh’s inquiries primarily fall into a different category: pre-marital affairs. “My clients want verified information about their children’s future spouses, things like their financial situation and [overall] reputation,” explains Singh, who likes to smooth his moustache while he talks.

Family Law Matters Do Not Belong in the Courtroom Says Family Law Attorney Mark Baer PDF Print E-mail

LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb 22, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Family Law matters, such as divorce and child custody, should not be decided in a courtroom, according to Family Law Attorney and Mediator Mark Baer. Instead, he says mediation and other forms of consensual dispute resolution should be the first choice in family law disputes. This is the norm for Family Law matters in Australia, England, Wales and Ontario, Canada. Using conflict resolution instead of litigation has helped reduce the backlog of court cases, drastically reduced costs for parties in divorces, reduced the damage to families and most importantly, has helped curb the growing cycle of violence in custody cases.

Washington (CNN) -- He was known only as A.J.A.-- a little boy at the center of a international custody fight that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The near decade-long dispute has now come to an end, not because of any judicial action, but simply because of time.

Alex Abbott turned 16 recently and has officially "aged out" of coverage under The Hague Convention dealing with child abduction across borders. A U.S. federal judge this week signed an order dismissing the case between the boy's parents.

Mother and son now live in Texas. She says the youngster seeks no further contact with his father.

Government backs 'shared parenting' legislation after separation PDF Print E-mail

Fathers and mothers should be entitled to a legally binding "presumption of shared parenting" after separation, the government has announced, rejecting advice by an independent review on family justice.

While the interests of the child are to remain paramount, a ministerial group will report back in two months on what form of words will be inserted into legislation ensuring that children maintain a "meaningful relationship" with both parents. The plan is opposed by David Norgrove, whose report last year warned of the situation in Australia after the country introduced shared parenting rights. A landslide of legal claims and counter-claims led to severe delays in child custody cases.

India says it will try to seek an "amicable" solution to a controversial child custody case in Norway.

Two Indian children aged three and one were taken into foster care last May leaving their parents "devastated".

The parents said there were "cultural differences" the authorities took exception to, including sleeping with the children and feeding them by hand.

Norway's child welfare denied this, saying it only intervened when parents did not take "adequate responsibility".
