I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Marital partners of any employees of this company and all parents who love their children should beware of this organization. The owner of this establishment seems to enjoy meddling in marital affairs, and also fostering illegal parental abductions for which she will aid in fabricating evidence for. In 2016, Darla aided in the criminal abduction of my child. She took an active role in this process despite the fact that she and I had no relationship whatsoever, and therefore she had no clue what she was doing. As a result, my son had his father stolen from his life, and I had my infant child ripped away. It took me 2 international lawsuits and 3 years to undo the damage that this woman helped accomplish, combined with vindicating myself of the fabricated evidence which she so clearly produced. Not only that, I am still witnessing the psychological damage she helped foster on my child unfold. Let it be known that I am not the first person whose marital affairs she has unnecessarily involved herself in, and I am certain that I won't be the last. It seems she has some sort of vigilante agenda and predisposition against preventing father's from exercising their parental rights. I would warn anyone and everyone that doing business with this establishment while it is under the management of Darla Dezacampo or her husband should be avoided at all costs. There is far too much to lose. You can take my word for it. Note to Darla: You should be ashamed of yourself. You are supposed to help children, not hurt them. I hope that you never again take part is such a diabolical act amounting to a grave perversion of the court system to all so that you can somehow feel high and mighty when in fact you acted impulsively based off misguided and completely uninformed premonitions. Shame on you. Once again, all parents that love their children and want what is best for them beware.
