Help him bring his kids home...

This account is to help bring the Greenies back home to Utah, where they choose to be.

DISCLAIMER: After hearing some disheartening lies about this sweet family, We would like to disclose that this account was, in fact, set up on BEHALF of the Green family... It was not set up BY the Green family. It was intentionally set up to give LESS information than you would even see on any MOTHER, sibling or personal Facebook page... the bottom line is, no Green Family member had anything to do with getting this account started; The Green's only connection is that they receive the donations in kind. We are here to help!

We aim to help pay the $3500 retainer fee and any ongoing needs for a good lawyer to represent the children and their father. UPDATE: He has secured a very good lawyer. Any future donations will be used to continue to pay through trial.  

These children are 14 and 16 years old and stuck in a legal system where the adults can’t seem to come to an agreement and/or won’t hear the children's wishes.

In 2014, The kids were taken away from their dad and family/friends to rural Arizona to live with mom and her boyfriend. Dad has only been able to see his children a handful of times since they moved. 

Spending the next 2 years of living in rural Arizona with few friends, (mostly just acquaintences, according to the children) and no family except their mother, the children have expressed loneliness and depression living down there and ultimately last year began experimenting with drugs and alcohol. They got into trouble and expelled from school while down in AZ and sadly, charges were assessed on their permanent school records. The kids finally decided in April that it was time to tell their mother that they were too unhappy and wanted to come back to Utah to live with their dad. To which she finally agreed…

On May 27th 2017, the children were dropped off to their dads house (by their mother) with all of their boxed belongings including birth certificates, immunization records, and social security cards – ALL with the unified understanding that she was cooperating with the wishes of the children to live with their dad. Their Mother also transferred their school records to the local school prior to dropping off the kids. Dad immediately registered the kids who excitedly chose their classes, looking forward to the new school year. 

The kids have spent over 2 months this summer integrating into their new life with their dad; watching the sunsets & playing guitar together. Rekindling their relationships with him, and all of their local Utah family and friends.

On August 2nd, without any warning, the children were unlawfully and traumatically removed from the care of their father without any prior legal notice. This happened as a retaliation to dad going through the legal system to make custody “official”. He supports his children's wishes and simply wants to care for and be with his children daily. The children were scared and traumatized by being taken from their dad's house the way they were and they have little to no support system in Arizona to help them through this. We are all worried about their emotional and psychological well-being as we are coming to find the children are on "lockdown" since they got back to AZ and unable to have private and uncensored conversations with anyone who contacts them. We are worried about the extended trauma that is being inflicted through this situation.

WE have all stood by quietly and watched these children unwillingly be ripped away from their father THREE SEPERATE TIMES NOW! We want to help fight for the children and their father with truth and integrity AND within the boundaries of the law to bring them home, where THEY want to be. Home where their father, ALL of their extended family from both sides and all of their best friends are here to support them. All they have in AZ is a Mother who refuses to look beyond her own ego... Somtimes, what the children want and what truly IS best for the children can be synonymous. 

Please help them fight to bring them home…

(We have kept the names of the children  and both parties from this post to protect their public/social anonymity and to prevent "slander" accusations. We would be happy to ethically and privately answer any questions you might have prior to donating. Please submit any questions through our gofundme  account.)

Please share and help us spread the word!!

Thank you in advance!!
