Unfortunately, at Friend of the Court offices around Michigan, there is evidence of the appearance of illicit and potentially criminal activities. This evidence includes evidence of theft of child support, evidence of child custody fraud, evidence of tampering with witnesses, evidence of child support calculation fraud, evidence of obstructing a federal audit, etc. [Google "Some Evidence of Illicit and Potentially Criminal Behavior at the Michigan Friend of the Court"] "You only need to go as far as the Genessee County FOC .. He openly tells of standing on line on his 1st day on the job as FOC, while an un-knowing clerk twice told him to "get behind the line" as she was taking a personal call on her cell, and told of another employee who came back from vacation, then proceeded to systematically dump over 90 voicemails from his phone while talking about the previous night ballgame with his cube-neighbor." [FRC@yahoogroups.com, Fall 2012] Former FOC enforcement specialist Carol Rhodes explained: 'I came to the 32nd circuit family court to make a difference, ... but early on I realized ... it was all about money ... In the years I worked for the system I witnessed regular deception ... that was mandated by office policy. I saw gender bias and discrimination. I saw records destroyed. ... We were rated according to how much money we would bring in' [Google "Carol Rhodes Friend of the Court video"]
