Rob Manzanares  LOS ALAMOS, NM

Robert Manzanares (Rob) is the biological father to a child he has fought for over seven (7) years for.  He has never given up even though the courts attempt to keep him from his constitutional right to raise his own daughter.  

His daughter was illegally adopted in the state of Utah. Through years of litigation he has over turned the adoption and obtained rights to his daughter again.  The case was moved to Colorado where the people who attempted to adopt her tried again to adopt her.  Again after years of litigation and 24 court appearances he has obtained rights to his daughter. 

Most would think that he has full custody of his daughter and they are living a happy full life.  The courts did the unthinkable and required him to share custody with the family who has held her illegally for seven years.  Rob has now requested to fight on and the Colorado Supreme Court to review the constitutional rights his daughter and him should have.

The fight has taken all Rob and his family has but he won't give up.  He has had to sale everything and even gone bankrupt fighting for his precious daughter.  He is in the final stretch and needs to the final push to pay his Legal Team.  As much as it bothers Rob to ask for money again he and his family is need of help and every penny helps pay the Attorneys.

The fight in Colorado is one of the most important cases to Fathers civil constitutional rights to their biological children.  Rob and his daughter should have never been taken from each other from the beginning.  The case has huge impacts on many other cases.  Please help!

Rob and his family have one final hurdle to get through and that is the final stretch to bring his daughter home and keep his kids together. The Appeal is almost done but racked up more legal fees than we expected. The unthinkable things they have been through have cost Rob and his family a bankruptcy and now more unnecessary legal fees as the family who has her continues to do unthinkable things to keep them from each other. May the Colorado Supreme Court stop this and keep Fathers Constitutional Rights intact for Rob, his daughter and other Fathers fighting. Please help if you can? Every penny goes straight to the legal team who has fought with Rob of seven years and is lenient enough to allow him to pay as they go. Thank you!

Dear Friends and Family,

Rob is closely approaching the deadline for the Appeal, April 13th and Rob is only about $4,000.00 away. He is putting his own efforts into this and working hard to get to that magical number of $10k or more. If we can get 400 of you to politely give up lunch for one day and donate $10.00 we are there! Kaia and Rob can be united and we can prove that the Psychological parent is NOT above a biological parent. The masses of opinions all agree that Rob's case is ground breaking and one that could affect many children and the Fathers in the future. Please we beg you to help Rob!!!

www.HowiGotCustody.org This is VERY COMMON. They never even ask or look for the biological father. If I was Rob, I would sue: (1) the adoptive parents, (2) the biological mother, (3) the lawyers and agency involved in the kidnapping....FOR deprivation of a constitutional right, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, abuse of the process and anything else available under tort law. His attorney also should have been asking for Civil Rule 11 sanctions against the adoptive parents' lawyer(s) all the way.
