Last week Heather Moody was back in court asking Judge Youngblood to compel her husband to provide his schedule in a readable manner so she could be aware of when he was out of town. He has refused to comply with the judge’s order to do this since March. Because of the judge’s first order giving the father temporary custody of the children, Heather moved back to Rockdale and found a job as a nurse to be closer to her children. The judge ruled that she should be able to have the children if her husband is away for more than two days. However, since her husband will not share his work schedule, she has no way of knowing when he is out of town. Phone records indicate that at least one of her children has been with the paternal grandparents half of the month.
This is, of course, the real focus in that the paternal grandparents want the children, as expressed in their filing to become joint managing conservators with their son in the initial pleadings, and since the son travels as a pilot more than half the month, if he gains permanent custody, the grandparents will have the children. Their son’s boast to Heather that “they owned the courthouse and would take the children from her and there was nothing she could do about it” seems to be what they really believe.
At this point, it appears her only hope for judicial justice will be a jury trial in which her peers from Cameron will decide whether or not she is denied custody of her children based on previous testimony that focused on the mere fact that she homeschooled as a reason to take away her rights as a parent. THSC will continue to raise money to help Heather cover the legal costs of regaining her children. Please pray for her and her attorneys and for THSC as we seek to stand strong with this godly, kind, and gentle home school mom.
