Please help this sweet family.

Our friend Jeff is in a very difficult custody battle for his twin boys. 

Because of the nature of the case, we are being very cautious about providing details on such a public forum- but we will be happy to share the story with any who are interested.

See savejames.com for more info and regular updates.

Jeff has already incurred roughly 250,000 in legal fees and needs to raise funds for future legal fees and the cost of expert witnesses to aid in his campaign to protect his children. Expert witnesses are incredibly expensive. Future counseling will also be needed to aid this family.

The safety of these kids is at stake and they are without legal protection.

How you can help...

1. Please pray for this family.
2. Please donate to help with litigation and child care costs including counseling and education needs.

*Please note: All money generated here and from our T-Shirt fundraiser ( https://www.bonfire.com/help-save-james) is going into an account in my name (Sarah Scott) that is specifically for the purpose of aiding Jeff's family. 
I am solely responsible for managing these resources and getting the funds to Jeff personally. 
As my husband is in the financial services industry- it would not be appropriate for these funds to co-mingle with our personal finances - which is the reason for a specific dedicated account designed for accountability. The donations result in no consideration and for the immediate benefit of Jeff's family.

I know you all have been waiting for an update, and Im sorry to say that there is very little to report. Jeff had the boys for the first week of the Christmas break, but the second week of the Christmas break fell during his usual weekend with the boys which means extended time away from them. He will see them this Thursday night for the first time since December 28. And will not get them for a weekend again until Friday the 18th.
As far as further court proceedings, much hinges on Dr. Albritton, the psychological custody evaluator. Until he has completed his study of both children and parents as well as close friends that are directly involved in the daily lives of these kids, we are sort of at a standstill.
Please pray for him to be wise, thorough and motivated to focus on this case so that things can begin to move faster. Every day that remains the same is another day of abuse in the lives of these kids. The profile and sensitivity of the issue at hand and the media attention towards transgender equality has blinded a number of professionals from applying their training, skill and common sense. We hope that Dr. Albritton will not fall victim to the same fear and boldly proceed with recommendations to assure their safety.
The only good thing about this time is that it allows Jeff and his attorney to really work on a game plan and to gather both legal and financial support to prepare for the trial that will inevitably be very large and very expensive.
Momentum is obviously down due in part to the holidays and to the lack of media attention.
Please remember that although I am a 3rd party journalist and can talk about my first hand experience, Jeff is still forced to hold his tongue and must be very cautious about what he says. This makes print media a safer forum for the time being and we are hopeful that some new articles will surface in the coming days.
Thanks to all your support and assistance, both Alliance Defending Freedom and the Thomas Moore society have reached out and offered some assistance to Jeff’s attorney. We aren’t sure to what extent at this point, but it is certainly good news that these large organizations are taking notice.
We are now at 1 million views! Please continue to share and direct people to the website. savejames.com
Thank you all for your continued support.

Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are continually having to refute allegations that this is unreal or a scam of some sort.
It seems that there are those who think that the numerous court documents we have on the site are somehow fabricated because they can’t be found online.

In family court - the privacy of children is taken into account and therefore custody cases like this are only accessible online to an active member of the bar. If you aren’t a legal representative, the only way you can access these documents is to go to the actual courthouse in person and request them (which we did) and pay a copying fee.

On the last page of the original court filing you will see a receipt where my husband paid for the copies with his name as the payor.

If you are at all concerned about the truth of this, I urge you to go to the courthouse yourself and request this information.

For those who are supporting this cause, I ask that you help us to protect these kids by refuting false allegations and asking any who call it a scam to provide proof to the contrary. Claiming that something is invalid or a scam with no proof is more damaging than people realize.

I understand that this is frightening and seems like it shouldn’t be possible. I wish it weren’t true! Unfortunately, it is and the very real life of this child and his brother are at stake.

Please continue to share and help us to protect these kids.
