This deadbeat fathers name is Orlando Romero (aka Orlando Romero Zavala or Orlano Zavala). For 11 years I was married to this man. My abuse started from a week after we got together and STUPID Me, I stayed. I believed all of his lies that he would never do it again. So I married him, had 3 children. Not only was I being abused by this man, he started on my children. He was or maybe still associated with a very bad and dangerous gang. I don't know.
There was not a day that went by that I myself was not beat up, it was constint, then my children. My youngest got it from the time I was pregnant with him until I left. Because of that, he is LEARNING DISABLED among other things. It got so bad from him, he would use guns and knives in the house towards us, that to this day I hypervenalate when balloons pop near me even in front of me. Due to this, we finally managerd to leave in a hurry, only to have to be on the run for 3 years and move 12 times in those 3 years.
Anyways, I am disabled now and I am not allowed to work anymore by doctors orders. I have RSD (a very painfull chronic disabling nerve disorder,) this makes it impossible to walk on my feet longer that 45 min. To an hour. I have a Degenerative disk disororder, 4 cyst in various parts of body, Ostio and Rhumetoid Arthritis and also slipped disk in lower back and neck from an accident. Before this, I was an Asst. Baker at a store.
Since I became disabled, I have had no money to take care of my kids. So of course I need his help. No, that is not going to happen. Everytime court came around, he would quit a job, 2 down to 1 so he would not have to pay much. Even then he would not pay even with a court order. A few years go by, non payment of child support gets higher and higher. From $8,000 behind to $11,000 when this last court hearing came around in 2007. Now 1 year later and the amount is up to $18,000. I have little food, Disability only pays so much and that only pays some of the rent. My straight A student daughter had to get a job part time get little hours just to help out even a little.
He also has 2 other children ages 4 and 3. She left him because he beat on her as well but thank god, not the children this time around. He has not payed her in a few months either. She has a good job but that is not the point.
He has a flooring business under the table, making good money (has no business license nor flooring license), he lives in a $415,000. Home (his name with 2 others), has 2 brand new work vans that he bought and a used pick up truck but put in his sisters name to hide and the list goes on. Now he wants to cell that house. Little does he know what I have done (HaHaHa).
Everytime I ask him for money, he does not have it he says. He says, I have not had business or I just payed my bills. Come on we all have bills, but I have the kids that I have to cloth and feed. I have went as far as putting leins on the things that has his name on it. But it has not got me no where. They froze his bank account, now it all goes into his business account and Child Support will not touch it. I think that if it is under the table and he is not paying taxes on it. I think that Child Support should be able to freeze that account to. His license has even been suspended for a long time now but he still drives those vans. Oh, and he is always buying new clothes, jewlery, new furniture, a huge flat screen etc. But still has no money.
This man needs to be put in jail, Im sorry he has been there so much, that I think he likes it there. What now, what more can i do???
My kids have been through hell due to this man, and it is
