JOHN DOE NO. 1:My name is John Doe and
I am a former citizen of the state of Connecticut who currently still has
litigation in the state of Connecticut and my choice to speak anonymously today
is no sign of disrespect for this Court or for this state; however, all of us
who opt to choose self-representation in the courts in the state of Connecticut
have been victimized by discriminatory conduct in the construction of the rules
of practice formulated since 1968 when the legislature ceased conducting public
hearings as required by Connecticut General Statute 51-14(a).
a self-represented party who has been victimized by the denial of access of my
due process and equal-protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment by the
family court system of the state of Connecticut, it is imperative that this
discrimination against pro se representatives cease and desist and cease and
I am proposing the following forms in family matters be modified:
That all financial affidavits using the form JD-FM-6 or any document filed in
lieu of JD-FM-6 as a financial affidavit shall be signed under the penalties of
perjury by each litigant and by their counsels;
The financial affidavit form JD-FM-6 shall contain specific questions that
reference gross income and assets that are “foreign-held assets” declared on
Federal IRS Form 1116 or on Federal IRS Form FBAR TD F 09-22.1;
The financial affidavit form JD-FM-6 shall add a specific section in the gross
income assets section which declares assets held in any state in the United
States or territory.The use of moving
assets to foreign countries during a divorce proceeding was cited in the The Wall Street Journal as one of the
top six reasons why 57,000 Americans moved assets to UBS, which paid a $970
million fine in February of 2009.
in Connecticut cannot allow lawyers who serve in the family commission to use
“attorney-client privilege” with a trust attorneys [sic.] overseas or foreign
and domestic estate attorneys to move assets overseas or to another state to
avoid truthful disclosures of assets in a divorce proceeding or a modification
of children’s expenses proceeding post-judgment.
(1)The following Practice Book rules should be
created concerning property distribution:(1)New Practice Book Rule
25-19a.In any final dissolution order
issued by a trial court as a MOD, if the value of an asset cannot be determined
at the time of the dissolution of marriage and if the value of that asset is
incorporated into the property dissolution orders as alimony by the trial
court, the portion of the property distribution declared as alimony shall be
declared as non-modifiable.
(2)New Practice Book Rule 20-7.Any litigant, pursuant to Rules of
Professional Conduct 1.OC (as read) may submit in writing written request to a
judicial authority in any proceeding to require a court reporter be assigned in
chambers to make an official record of any conversations conducted in a family
matter and the following Practice Book rule shall be modified to include the
following provision:Practice Book Rule
25-61(h) and Practice Book Rule 1-13A shall both be amended so that all sworn
statements of expenses, assets, etcetera, shall be filed on Form JD-FM-6 or any
other sworn financial affidavit filed by any judicial -- with any judicial
authority and 1-13A shall be amended to add the following language:No self-represented party can be incarcerated
without being provided counsel.
rule modifications are necessary to prevent the continuing discrimination which
is represented in current Practice Book rules.
you very much, Your Honors.
JUSTICE ROGERS:Thank you.
