Francesca (Fran) Amato-Banfield came to my attention recently when she showed up with Samantha Brown and Jamie Sparks Wehrheim Johnson to try and bring some attention to the case of Lee Kenworthy who had his 2 children removed by New Jersey’s child protective agency (“the Division”).  In  conjunction therewith, Lee Kenworthy went through a short period of institutionalism due to mental issues and has been released.

.

Fran fancies herself a leader in the movement against the Government with a specialty in child welfare and family court matters.  She has had her own, personal issues involving child custody and family courts which may have conditioned her for her chosen cause.

Public Service Announcement regarding Fran, Jamie & Samantha:

.

.

What Lee Kenworthy said about Fran just before his infamous Memorial Day 2018 standoff with authorities before his kids were removed by the State and he was sent to a mental institution.

.

.

What Christine Mueller, Lee’s program host, said shortly before Lee gave his opinion of Fran:

.

.

Fran’s movement appears to be fracturing with various “players” being at odds with each other.  Fran and Lee seem to be trying to present an image of “kiss and make up” and move forward even while Fran declares war on her “in-house” adversaries who also appear determined to go to war with Fran.

.

Here’s a link to Fran’s July 23, 2018 interview with Lee and a screenshot/quote in the context of Fran’s efforts to “get” her “in-house” adversaries such as C.J. Abernathy and John Anderson.

.

.

.

In light of my earlier coverage of the Lee Kenworthy case and critical reporting of her on-line antics with Samantha Brown and Jamie Sparks Wehrheim Johnson, Fran has blocked me from her personal FaceBook page.

.

After hearing what Fran said today about “suing” people, I thought it might be appropriate for me to document my own objection to what Fran is and what she does.

.

On her website, Fran makes the following claim about her “P4P” organization:

.

“Punished 4 Protecting, Inc. (P4P)

as a 501 (c) 4 social welfare non-profit

Family Court Reform entity,

was established January 2018.”

.

I am not personally aware that Fran’s “P4P” has officially been recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(4) organization.  That process may or may not be underway or has been completed.

.

Fran seems to have many irons in many fires which makes figuring out her schemes somewhat difficult.

.

Based on my own experience in covering her movement and related causes over the last couple of years, I consider Fran more likely a “fraud” as Lee Kenworthy and others of her own kind have claimed; exploiting the unfortunate circumstances of people with issues with child welfare/family court agencies for her own purposes instead of working, in good faith, to help them deal with “due processes” in place and/or work to change the systems.

.

I consider Fran’s involvement and antics in the Lee Kenworthy case as evidence supporting my opinions about Fran and her operations.

Update July 31, 2018

Shortly after the above case was dismissed, Fran regrouped and filed another frivolous federal suit.  Best I can tell, it is currently being postured for dismissal as was the above case (Fran has other, older cases in federal court she has also “lost”).

Matter of Beesmer v Amato

.

Matter of Beesmer v Amato 2018 NY Slip Op 04403 Decided on June 14, 2018 Appellate Division, Third Department Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431. This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports. 
.
Decided and Entered: June 14, 2018 
524467 
.
[*1]In the Matter of PATRICK BEESMER, Respondent, 
.
v
.
FRANCES J. AMATO, Appellant. 
.
Calendar Date: April 24, 2018 
Before: Lynch, J.P., Devine, Mulvey, Aarons and Pritzker, JJ. 
.
Meth Law Offices, PC, Chester (Michael D. Meth of counsel), for appellant.Tracy E. Steeves, Kingston, for respondent.Marcia Heller, Rock Hill, attorney for the child..
Aarons, J.MEMORANDUM AND ORDER.Appeal from an order of the Family Court of Ulster County (McGinty, J.), entered January 31, 2017, which granted petitioner’s application, in a proceeding pursuant to Family Ct Act article 6, to hold respondent in willful violation of a prior order of custody..Respondent (hereinafter the mother) and petitioner (hereinafter the father) are the parents of a son (born in 2007). In 2015, the mother and the father filed competing petitions to modify a prior custody order under which, as relevant here, the mother had primary physical custody of the child. .In October 2016, Family Court, among other things, awarded the father sole legal and physical custody of the child and awarded the mother supervised visitation with the child. The October 2016 order also imposed a 60-day jail sentence upon the mother, with the term being suspended so long as the mother complied with the order and delivered the child to the father within 10 days of being served therewith. In January 2017, the father filed a violation petition seeking to hold the mother in contempt based upon her failure to comply with the terms of the October 2016 order. .Following a hearing, Family Court found that the mother willfully violated the October 2016 order and ordered her to be committed to the Ulster County jail for 60 [*2]days [FN1]. The mother appeals.“To sustain a finding of civil contempt for a violation of a court order, a petitioner must show by clear and convincing evidence that there was a lawful court order in effect that clearly expressed an unequivocal mandate, that the person who allegedly violated the order had actual knowledge of its terms, and that his or her actions or failure to act defeated, impaired, impeded or prejudiced a right of the moving party” (Matter of Wesko v Hollenbeck, 149 AD3d 1175, 1175—1176 [2017] [internal quotations marks and citations omitted]; see Matter of Eller v Eller, 134 AD3d 1319, 1320 [2015]; Matter of Aurelia v Aurelia, 56 AD3d 963, 964 [2008]). A court’s determination finding a party in contempt of an order will not be disturbed absent an abuse of discretion (see Seale v Seale, 154 AD3d 1190, 1192 [2017]; Matter of Gerber v Gerber, 145 AD3d 1128, 1129 [2016]; Matter of Aurelia v Aurelia, 56 AD3d at 964)..Contrary to respondent’s assertion, the record evidence supports Family Court’s determination that she was properly served with the October 2016 order via her designated agent for service (see Family Ct Act § 154-b [2] [c]). .To the extent that the designated agent denied being served with the October 2016 order, Family Court did not credit her testimony (see Matter of Yeager v Yeager, 110 AD3d 1207, 1210 [2013]). .Moreover, the mother had notice of the October 2016 order, at the latest, by the middle of December 2016. In this regard, she testified that, at that time, she learned of the October 2016 order through her social media account and immediately hired an attorney [FN2]. She did not, however, return the child to the father. .Furthermore, when the mother knew there was a change in custody pursuant to the October 2016 order, she still refused to return the child to the father..In view of the foregoing, the father established by clear and convincing evidence that the mother willfully violated a lawful order (see Matter of Dorsey v De’Loache, 150 AD3d 1420, 1423-1424 [2017]; Matter of Seacord v Seacord, 81 AD3d 1101, 1102-1103 [2011]; Matter of Joseph YY. v Terri YY., 75 AD3d 863, 867 [2010])..Finally, the mother waived her argument that the father’s contempt petition was facially deficient by failing to raise any objection thereto and by appearing and defending against the petition’s allegations (see Matter of Glenn v Glenn, 262 AD2d 885, 886 [1999], lv dismissed and denied 94 NY2d 782 [1999]). .In any event, the petition satisfied the requirements of Judiciary Law § 756. .Nor do we find merit in the mother’s contention that the imposed jail term was excessive or stemmed from an abuse of Family Court’s discretion. .The mother’s remaining contentions have been examined and have been found to be without merit..Lynch, J.P., Devine, Mulvey and Pritzker, JJ., concur..ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs..Footnotes 
.
Footnote 1: This Court stayed enforcement of Family Court’s order of commitment pending this appeal. Footnote 2: Notwithstanding her testimony, we note that the mother, in her brief, stated that she received notice of the October 2016 order towards the end of November 2016.

true and false:

.

1. Fran is running for governor of ny…this is false, this is another one of her many schemes to get donations from unsuspecting parents.

.

2. Fran is fighting the system hard and they fear her. this is false, Fran is actually too stupid to fight the system, she is using that as a ploy to get donations.

.

3. Frans ADA complaint has been excepted. this is false. unless being denied is a win she is oblivious to law.

.

4. I am mad because Traci, is cheating on me. this is false, first Traci is and never was cheating on me. there have been multiple men that have hit on her including the perv she is with. we laughed at them together.

.

5. trolls are trying to take Fran, down. this is true, she labels everyone that knows what she is doing a troll.

.

6. I want her. this is without a doubt false. she expressed interest in me many times before and while I’m in a relationship. many other men have come forward as well, all to smart to get involved, including her ex. she tried to get him back while she is with the pervert she is dating.

.

7. Fran helps kids. this is false. she somehow convinces poor unsuspecting parents that she knows what she is doing and destroys their case, for a fee.

.

8. Fran is sending nude phots to men in the movement. this is true. in her misguided attempt to convince people that she is female she will send the most discusting pictures of her self. please use caution, its not a pretty sight.

.

9. her ex is a drug user. this is false, her current boyfriend is, he has even been charged with manufacturing. she says this to get support for alienating her son from his father.

.

10. Traci is just mad because she wants her man. this is faulse, Traci met him and was discussed at who and what he is. he is butt hurt because she rejected him for obvious reasons. Traci actually thinks they are ment for each other, so does frans ex.

.

11. everyone is attacking Fran. this is false. she is hurting people and their cases and they are angry about that.

.

please feel free to add in comments.

Update January 5, 2019

A pretty good article in The Daily Haze on the war going on in the anti-child welfare movement.

http://thedailyhaze.com/sovereign-citizen-affidavits/

Excerpt

Francesca Amato-Banfield, David Jose Romero Watson and David Straight are the three scammers backing these affidavits and convincing desperate families children are coming home because of them, despite having yet to provide one legal document backing those claims. When questioned about the affidavits, they quickly block the person and tell others to do the same. Their social media accounts are littered with stories exposing CPS faults that they present in a manner to appear they were a part of. Almost everything they claim is shrouded in deceit, including their pasts.

.

UPDATE January 22, 2019

Frances Amato (aka Francesca Amato-Banfield) performs today and talks about her latest “immunity” fraud and names the names of other frauds she is associated with like David Jose, Michaele McMillan, David Straight, etc.  Here’s the link to her video:

Excerpt

FRANCES AMATO v. ROBERT BATY – Private Law 114-31

.

Proposition for Discussion with Frances Amato:

.

It is true that Private Law 114-31 (S-112), as promoted
by Frances Amato (aka Francesca Amato-Banfield),
was passed by the U.S. Congress on behalf of
Bradley Christopher Stark, et al, and provides
citizens today with the option to opt-in and receive
immunity from the laws and/or processes of the 
United States and/or its various States.

.

– Frances Amato: Affirm

– Robert Baty: Deny

My Analysis of Fran’s/Cynthia’s Performances

.

FRAUDULENT FRAN appears to be on the run regarding her opt-in promotion of days gone by, but she’s not giving up; she’s apparently changing tactics a bit and trying to salvage the fraud, the hoax, and put any blame on Cynthia L. Yohn when things blow up in her face.

.

We’ll see about that.

.

Fran’s live performance tonight, featuring Cynthia L. Yohn is at:

.

https://www.facebook.com/toccarenon/videos/786554238389418/

.

My article on Fran is at:

.

http://kehvrlb.com/francesca-amato-banfield-fraud-alert

.

Now watch close and try to check it out and post your own evaluation for consideration.

.

Fran introduces Cynthia to explain the opt-in scheme.

.

Cynthia is careful to admit that there are no guarantees.

.

Fran again mentions the “arbitration date of February 8, 2019”, but, again, offers no explanation on why that is a deadline date.

.

Cynthia continues the fraud, the hoax, by claiming that they are only asking for Congress to pass a “private law” for them like was done with “Private Law 114-31” in 2016.

.

I propose, and have yet to have anyone step forward and try to rebut my position, that there was no “Private Law 114-31” in 2016.

.

Keeping watching close as to what it appears Fran and Cynthia have done to try and move away from the clearly sovcit website “Scanned Retina”.

.

Previously, Fran had referred folks to “Private Law 114-31” as displayed on the “Scanned Retina” website at:

.

https://scannedretina.files.wordpress.com/2019/01/private_law_114_31.pdf

.

Fran applauds Cynthia for changing all the links to Fran’s promotion as posted to her page.

.

The link Fran is now providing for access to the alleged “Private Law 114-31” is now:

.

https://www.mediafire.com/file/yjs9mswk1biel8u/Private+Law+114-31.pdf

.

I have trouble with links like that. Others can look and compare the 2 websites/links and let “us” know what else that might be worthy of note.

I may have struck a nerve, finally!

Tomorrow is the supposed deadline for people to “opt-in” to Fran’s “immunity” hoax.  Meanwhile, she has come up with another scam making all the more manifest her sovereign citizen leanings.

https://www.facebook.com/toccarenon/posts/792367424474766

.

UPDATE February 9, 2019

Fran’s much talked about opt-in deadline date for immunity, February 8, 2019, came and went without her mentioning it (as far as I could tell), but she has come up with a new promotion as indicated in the file below and which appears to be the brainchild of one John Anthony Gentry who has struck out in his efforts to litigate his complaints in the usual course (at least one Tennessee lawmaker/commentator has suggested John is just upset for coming out on the losing end of a divorce).

In any case, Fran has picked up on it and the promotion to make it go nationwide in all the states.
