People... the horror stories about Kelley Baker are all true. I had heard about "nutty" ad litems before, but I figured that there was more to those stories than was being told and that in real-life, nobody would make a recommendation that was completely unfounded. I thought, "Hey, I am a sane, normal, caring and decent person. I love my kids and I am a good parent. That won't happen to me." Boy was I wrong. Moral of the story... it does not matter who you are or whether you are an amazing parent. Kelley Baker can and will destroy your life. For the well-being of your own children, I hope you will learn from my mistake.

My experience was the same as the others listed here...

1.) Kelley Baker did not pay attention to any of the facts in the case. This was most evident in the historical section of her report, which was littered with factual errors, such as dates. For instance, her report said that my husband and I were married less than a month after his divorce, when really it was the other side who got engaged at that time. This information should have been cut and dry... the fact that the ENTIRE history was wrong showed that she did not bother to check anything the other side said. Which, unfortunately for us, was all lies.

2.) Kelley Baker was biased in all of her findings. We had every type of documentation imaginable, character witnesses AND the opposing side's deposition transcript!!! She dismissed ALL of them because they did not coincide with her opinion.

3.) Kelley Baker's decision was highly inflammatory and has caused irreparable damage within our family. Co-parenting is no longer an option and her condescending tone toward our desire to raise considerate, thoughtful and caring children makes me angry every day.

4.) Kelley Baker's recommendation was not in the best interest of the children. It was in the best interest of a parent... a parent who put their own needs above those of their children and forced everyone else to sacrifice.

My advice to others is:

1.) If you have facts on your side, do not get an ad litem. The judge has to follow the law, but there are no standards or code of ethics for ad litems.

2.) If you have hire an ad litem, do not hire Kelley Baker. She WILL divide the family even further.

3.) If you are stuck with Kelley Baker as your ad litem, go on the offensive. Do not listen to lawyers who tell you that you should not bad-mouth the other side. Because, guess what. They are bad-mouthing you and chances are, Kelley is drinking it in. If you have documentation showing abuse or neglect, show it to a judge immediately.

Dr. Kelley Baker's job as parenting facilitator included but was not limited to facilitating between the two divorcing parents to help ease communication for the betterment of the two children. Dr. Baker, however, only heightened tensions between the parents. An example would include her refusal to communicate with one of the two parents for over a year. Instead, she chose to listen to only one of the two parent's side of the story. The one parent she chose to listen to happens to be an admitted member of incest pornography online sites amongst other incredibly questionable behaviors. Dr. Baker chose to ignore or forget about this and other issues when she listened to this one parent's outlandish stories bad-mouthing the other parent (which she refused to talk to for over a year). As a result of Dr. Baker only listening to this one parent, the two children suffered immense and unnecessary life changing drama which included an attempted suicide by one and running away from home by the other. Dr. Baker needs to be closely examined by her Licensing Board in my opinion. Her ill-informed, careless and profoundly unprofessional decision making has life-lasting negative consequences for the children involved. She is biased, she increased harmful conflict between parents, she improperly influenced parties to make decisions and she does not give records when records are requested. In addition, she over bills and changes her bill randomly. If she bills you one month and you pay it in full, she will send a new bill later which tells you you still owe her for past bills from two years ago.

Dr. Baker is a legal advocate, not a therapist, it turns out. If that's what you want, she's perfect. She will ignore a long, well-documented case history of her client's mental illness and drug abuse, and advocate for that client's wishes 100% all the way to court. All without ever actually talking to anyone else in the family, or any other of the many past therapists. She will even recommend no contact with the other parent -- if that is what her client pays her to say. All without ever once giving a reason why, or pointing to even one shred of evidence supporting her client's wild accusations. All this has harmed the child immensely, but she seems unconcerned. She has increased conflict, and seriously damaged the long-term prospects of fixing the relationship. Kidnapping a 16 year old child from his school and his life and holding him hostage until he agrees to be nice to a parent who abused him repeatedly sounds like something out of a Lifetime movie.
