Tom Padgett's Child Custody Case
G. Preston Affidavit in Civil Action # 92-CI-00444
AFFIDAVIT RE: Civil Action # 92-CI-00444 Diversion Plea Agreement # 98-CI-0067 I, G. Preston Doom, do hereby certify that the attached January 31, 1996 professional assessment of Mr. Thomas Padgett, is a true and correct copy. I continue to stand by it's validity and conclusions. I have reviewed the June 5, 1998 and June 8, 1999 psychological evaluations of Mr. Padgett by Dr. Marvin Snider, and the August 11, 1999 evaluation by Rev. Robert T. Pardon in re: Mr. Padgett's personal issues and moral character. Combined, these three (3) documents are very compelling and support my earlier analysis pointing to unfriendly and negative influences not only impacting Padgett's career demise, but maintaining his income potential as severely challanged and covertly compromised. Supporting my January 1996 warning and advisements for authori- tative intervention, a review of Padgett's 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 income from IRS tax returns and W-2 forms, clearly illustrates a radically sharp decline from a six (6) figure income in 1993 to a level of what would be considered borderline poverty a four (4) figures. One can not ignore in reviewing prolific documentation of Mr. Padgett's life since 1992, that he has been engulfed in vexatious litigation being protracted by his ex wife which has advanced into criminal charges. Having a felony label placed on Mr. Padgett would completely dash any hopes of him resuming any decent paying job. His current medical problems with his back adds to the bleak outlook of any income potential. As a practicing arbitrator, I would urge Mrs. Padgett to pursue other more prudent dispute resolution alternatives such as mediation and arbitration. This is consistent with the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Bounds of Advocacy philosophies and recommendations. COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY COUNTY OF LIVINGSTON <signature> <signature> G. Preston Doom Notary Public Preston and Associates my commission expires: 3-24-2001 Farmington Hills, M1 4-18-00 A. Summers <illegible> County Circuit Clerk attachment:
There is a story in the above entered stamped date of 18 Apr 2000 which marks this case ("missing" docs and all). Mr. Preston was in court on the 10th of Apr during the Padgett session and entered his affidavit and evaluation of T. Padgett. When Mr. Padgett faxed the court clerk for an "entered" copy a week later it had as "entered" stamped date the 18th of Apr. Which seems odd. What if Tom Padgett would not have asked for a copy?
