Major, Ph.D. - Nothing stirs up passions more than the controversy generated when parents are at war over the custody of a child.

According to Mrs. Adolf’s attorney Michael Humiston, the order had been issued because he had advised caseworkers of his intention to monitor their visits to Mrs. Adolf’s home in order "to protect Janet’s rights."
