Will FBI Investigate GAL Maria Averill

Will The FBI Investigate Maria Averill?

This is the second post in this 3 part series, discussing some of Maria Averill’s illegal activities as Guardian Ad Litem in my Family Court case… Will the FBI investigate Maria Averill?

Since you’ve been asking for more details around this whole Guardian Ad Litem situation with Maria Averill, I’m sharing more about this.

Where we left off in this outrageous (true) story, is where Maria Averill, an attorney in the State of South Carolina, and my children’s Guardian Ad Litem, took off with my legal document, which I expressly said she could not take, but she was welcome to take pictures of, for her records. Have a listen!

To recap, a few hours later, after realizing that my document had gone missing from my carefully organized records… I called Averill, asking her if she had my document. She did! She said it must have been an accident… I don’t know about you, but I wonder if she might have even taken it for herself, to give to Marie-Louise Ramsdale, (Kristin’s divorce attorney at the time.)

She’d directly asked me if “ML knew about this,” so why not take her the evidence itself? What do you think? Could it be that she actually took my private document on purpose to share with Ramsdale? And if that is what happened, could it be that this is extremely inappropriate, maybe even illegal activity? I’m not a lawyer, but I have to wonder.

Did Maria Averill Improperly Insert Herself into My Federal Case (which has nothing to do with Family Court, her actual jurisdiction?)

Standard of Conduct

Attorneys are held to a much higher standard of conduct. Maria Averill is an attorney and a GAL. An officer of the court, could she have knowingly lied to federal agents? I shake my head in wonder as I go through this same evidence that I’m sharing with you.

Improper Jurisdiction

Charleston Family Court is the only jurisdiction in which the Guardian ad litem appointed for my divorce litigation should have sought relief as to any and all issues related any party in the matter. 

Instead, the GAL flouted the Family Court’s authority by seeking relief outside of that Court. That is fact.

Demonstrating Extreme Bias

Due to demonstrated extreme bias against me, the GAL sought relief from improper entities, including the FBI, in an effort to ensure I would become incarcerated pending outcome of my federal trial, and kept away from my children. 

Acting Outside Scope of Duties

The GAL Maria Averill acted improperly and outside of the scope of her duties when she knowingly made false statements to the FBI in an effort to influence the actions of the FBI in my ongoing federal case. The GAL attempted to convince the FBI that I was a flight risk, despite having possession of my children’s passports. I even offered her my passports every time I had custody, just to show good faith on my part. It’s just so ridiculous. Even if my flight was a real concern, her proper course of action was to seek relief from a judge in the Charleston County Family Court. Does Maria Averill trust and stay between the lines of her own Charleston County Family Court? Or in my case has she been stepping outside the bounds for reasons of her own that are outside of the law?

What happens in a country like the United States when rule of law becomes a plaything to be abused by those in power, especially when it comes to the lives of innocent children and loving parents? I shudder to think of the implications and will be sharing other people’s stories (and evidence) with the Charleston County Family Court as we go. I found them to be deeply disturbing and astonishing.

One thing is clear… there’s a lot happening under the surface in Charleston South Carolina and I intend to expose anyone who has remotely harmed my children.


Although the GAL’s attempt to ensure I would be incarcerated failed (she went to the FBI rather than the proper entity, i.e. the U.S. Attorney’s office), she continued to try and influence individuals against me. More on that in upcoming posts.

Where do we go from here?

Given all the above, doesn’t it seem as though the Guardian ad Litem committed multiple federal crimes, including lying to federal agents, obstruction of justice, and committing conspiracy? So, I have to wonder…

Will the FBI open a probe to investigate Ms. Averill’s conduct?

Or, given that she is white, a professing Christian, a licensed attorney, and a Guardian Ad Litem, will they let it slide?

What do you think? 

  • Do you think it’s possible that the government ends up investigating Maria Averill to prove that nobody is above the law?
  • How likely is it that justice will finally be brought against Maria Averill?
