James Fletcher Thompson Attorney at Law JAMES FLETCHER THOMPSON, LLC 302 E. Saint John St. Post Office Box 1853 Spartanburg, South Carolina 29304 (864) 573-5533 ext. 5 ATTORNEY FOR PLAINTIFFS Date: August 31, 2017 AMENDED COMPLAINT 2017-DR-23-3628 STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA IN FAMILY COURT COUNTY OF GREENVILLE THIRTEENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT JANE AND JOHN DOE, Plaintiffs, vs. BRIAN CHRISTOPHER LEDBETTER AND HAILEE, A MINOR UNDER THE AGE OF SEVEN (7) YEARS, Defendants. The Plaintiffs would respectfully show to this Court: 1. The Plaintiffs, JANE DOE and JOHN DOE, are citizens and residents of Greenville County, South Carolina, residing at XXXXX Street, Greer, South Carolina 29650, and are husband and wife, having been married on XXXXX, 1988, in Blacksburg, South Carolina. 2. JOHN DOE is forty-nine (49) years of age; JANE DOE is forty-eight (48) years of age. 3. The minor Defendant Hailee is a Caucasian female born on November 19, 2014, at Upstate Carolina Medical Center in Cherokee County, South Carolina. 4. Upon information and belief, the Defendant Brian Christopher Ledbetter is the biological father of the minor Defendant, Hailee. 5. Plaintiff JANE DOE is the maternal great-aunt of the minor Defendant Hailee. 6. The Plaintiffs obtained physical custody of the minor Defendant Hailee on April 23, 2016, pursuant to a kinship agreement. Legal custody of the minor Defendant Hailee was granted to Plaintiffs pursuant to an Order of Cherokee County Family Court, filed June 28, 2016, bearing docket number 2016-DR-11-041. 7. It is the sincere desire of the Plaintiffs to establish a relationship of parent and child with the minor Defendant and the Plaintiffs are fit and proper persons, fully capable of caring for the child and providing for the child's welfare. 8. That to the best of the knowledge of the Plaintiffs, the minor child owns no property, either real or personal, in the State of South Carolina or elsewhere. 9. Plaintiffs allege that the biological mother has voluntarily signed a release in which she has relinquished all her parental rights to the minor Defendant and this document is filed herewith. In this document the biological mother specifically consents for the minor Defendant to be adopted and therefore her parental rights should be terminated. She has specifically waived her right to be named as a Defendant to an action to terminate her parental rights and/or an action for adoption of the minor Defendant and she has specifically consented to there being one action which will include the termination of her parental rights and the adoption of the minor Defendant by the Plaintiffs. 10. Plaintiffs allege Brian Christopher Ledbetter has not maintained substantial and continuous or repeated contact with the minor Defendant in that he has not paid support for the minor child, has not visited the minor child or had regular communication with the minor child. Plaintiffs allege the consent of Brian Christopher Ledbetter, is not required pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 63-9-310. Further, his parental rights should be terminated pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 63-7-2570 (3) failure to visit; Section 63-7-2570 (4) failure to pay support; Section 63-7-2570 (6) diagnosable condition unlikely to change within a reasonable time making it unlikely for biological father to provide minimally acceptable care for the child; and, Section 63-7-2570 (7) abandonment. 11. A search of the South Carolina Responsible Father Registry has been done by Plaintiffs' counsel and no claim of paternity was filed according to the Certificate of Diligent Search which has been filed with this Court. Plaintiffs allege this failure to register constitutes an implied irrevocable waiver of any John Roe birth father's right to notice of these adoption proceedings. 12. The Plaintiffs allege upon information and belief that this man (John Roe) has not maintained substantial and continuous or repeated contact with the minor children in that he has not paid support for the minor child, has not visited the minor child or had regular communication with the minor child. Plaintiffs allege the consent of John Roe is not required pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 63-9-310. Further, the parental rights of John Roe should be terminated pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 63-7-2570 (3) failure to visit; Section 63-7-2570 (4) failure to pay support; and, Section 63-7-2570 (7) abandonment. 13. The Plaintiffs request that the Court waive the pre-placement and post placement investigations, and the accounting in that the Plaintiffs duly believe that these are not required pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 63-9-1110. 14. The Plaintiffs are informed and believe that a Guardian ad Litem should be immediately appointed for the minor Defendant to protect the child's best interest during the proceedings. 15. Upon information and belief, the minor Defendant is considered special needs pursuant to Section 63-9-30(10) due to the fact that the court has found that the minor Defendant has been physically neglected. WHEREFORE, the Plaintiffs pray for: A. The termination of parental rights of the biological parents of the minor Defendant; B. That the Plaintiffs be permitted to adopt the minor Defendant; for the relationship of parent and child between the Plaintiffs and minor child to be established; C. For an Order of this Court directing that a birth certificate be issued in the name of Hailee Marie Fowler, showing the Plaintiffs as the parents of the minor child; D. The records of these proceedings to be sealed; and, E. Such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper. James Fletcher Thompson Attorney at Law JAMES FLETCHER THOMPSON, LLC 302 E.
