Talk ya talk!
By American “CU”
I feel it is my responsibility and duty to inform your readers, especially the ones here in the United States, on the favoritism and bias or non-decisions handed down as orders by some in your judicial system in Barbados. Especially if the presiding Judge happens to be friends with the opposing counsel, or maybe they both belong to the same labor party.
This all started back in May of this year, when my daughter finally got an interview with the US embassy to obtain her Green Card for her and her daughter. Even though they were never married the child ended up with the father’s last name and the Embassy requested that he provided a letter of permission.
This ended up in the courts and this one judge that in my opinion did not have the desire to rule and therefore, started in motion a set of procedures that prolonged the request. She even included the Child Care Board and even they did not change her original thoughts, that if the mother wanted to leave the Island, she must leave her three year old daughter with the father.
She has now even added fuel to the fire by giving the order that my daughter cannot bring her daughter to the United States until she comes to the United States and find a job which would show her that my daughter is capable of taking care of her daughter. Have you ever heard such stupidness?
First, the US embassy was satisfied with the evidence that I presented to them, showing that I and my spouse is more than capable of taking care of both of them until the mother finds gainful employment. If my financial affidavit was not strong, the US Immigration would not have allowed the Visas. So could someone tell me why this madam justice has made such a decision? Tell me this is not a miscarriage of justice just because she has “Black Robe Syndrome”.
Meanwhile the winder of opportunity for my daughter to relocate to the US with her daughter is slowly closing. Everybody knows you only have six months after the interview to leave Barbados or you’ll lose the visa and will have to start from square one all over again.
Maybe, this is what the Judge would like to see happen, so she could keep her friendship with the father’s counsel.
