UPDATE: May 16, 2012 Family Values Manchester Style




March 12 - On the day before the arraignment of Alexander, Duke of Manchester for passing bad checks took place in Las Vegas he placed a call to Child Protective Services in Orange County, California making a charge his daughter, Ashley, had called, telling him her mother, Wendy, was constantly drunk.  He also called the police and asked they do a welfare check.  


 Wendy believes the report was made as a form of harassment.  The following events are documented, providing the back story for this report.

March 13 
Alexander's arraignment took place in the Las Vegas, Court 8, in front of Judge  William D. Jansen, Department 5.  This resulted in his being bound over for pretrial to take place July 18th.
An attorney appeared for Montagu.  The court provided contact information for the attorney who is Steve Goldstein,  Half Priced Lawyers Suite #100, 330 E Charleston Boulevard Las Vegas, NV 89104 Tel: (702) 400-0000.


Criminal History for Alexander Montagu, Duke of Manchester
The Duke's past criminal history appeared extensively in Australian papers from 1984 - 1991 ARTICLES at which time he left the country relocating to the United States where he persuaded Wendy Buford to enter into a marriage with him, failing to inform her he had not ended his marriage to Marion Stoner.  The Stoner marriage took place  March 17, 1984.  Certificate
The marriage to Buford took place May 7th, 1993.  

The couple's first child, a boy named Alexander Michael Charles David Drogo  Montagu, was born  May 13th.  Alex asked Wendy to marry him months before but insisted the marriage take place that day because, she said, Alex told her he was in danger of being deported.  Immediately after the child's birth the baby was left with Wendy's mother and Wendy was forced to go to Immigration and Naturalization to provide papers proving they were legally married, according to Wendy. 


This, it turns out, was a fraud as Alexander, still married to Stoner, could not legally marry in the United States or elsewhere. 


The Stoner divorce took place in 1996.  According to emails and the reports of Wendy Montagu, who was unaware she was not legally married, Alex was on the phone frequently with his mother, Lady Mary Montagu, who, insisted a divorce finally take place from Stoner.  The divorce became final on October 28, 1996.  Dissolution 


Longer Stoner Story


There can be no doubt Montagu knew about the tardy divorce from Stoner and that he withheld this information from his then wife, Wendy Buford Montagu.  This impacted her legal standing as the wife of a Peer and of her son, Alex Jr., who was not, therefore legitimate.  These facts were also withheld from those overseeing the financial matters of the Manchester Trusts by both Alex and his mother, Lady Mary Montagu.  


Lady Montagu insisted Alex remarry Wendy.  This he failed to do.  


On June 16, 1999 a second child,  Ashley  Faith Maxine Nell Beatrice Montagu, was born to the couple.


This child, because of the failure of their father to repair his marital status, was also illegitimate, though this remained unknown to Wendy or to others they knew until 2009.


In the interum Duke Alex had planned and carried out a divorce intended to force Wendy to pay him alimony and child support.  If the court had been aware the original marriage was not legitimate no alimony could have been awarded.  


On November16th, 2006, Montagu took out divorce papers.  Wendy was served December 6th at her home, where the couple was still living together as husband and wife.  


They had just moved again, the 11th such move during their marriage.  All of these moves were caused by Montagu's non-payment of the mortgage or rent, which resulted in continuous evictions. 


On  January 5th, 2007 Montagu laid false charges against Wendy, accusing her of drunkenness, and violence.  

Alex phoned her work and informed the other receptionist that he had issued a restraining order against her. This was followed up with a call from the sheriffs’ department that this action had been filed and she would be required to appear in court and answer to these charges. Alex’s claimed she had chased him around the house with a knife.

Wendy was immediately evaluated by court appointed counselors to determine if she was a fit mother. It was determined she could have unsupervised visitations with the children during the divorce proceedings. During the divorce all of the exchanges ......... with the children were at the police station.

After months of investigation, the process extended because of Montagu's continued pleas to the court of his medical problems and lack of counsel, physical custody of the children was awarded to Wendy Buford Montagu.  

In August of 2007 the case was heard.   

The Judge considered all the reports from CPS, the 730 evaluator and the psychologist. CPS indicated that they had observed one of the worst cases of Parental Alienation at the hands of Alex. 

August 23 - Alex lost physical custody of the children, where were picked up by their mother, Wendy, with nothing but the pajama’s they were wearing. To this date all of their possessions remain with their father who has not seen either of them since 2009.

August 30th - Marriage between Wendy and Alex Montagu is dissolved, with some issues reserved.

September 21st - Alex marries Laura Ann Smith, a spinster in her 40s whose father was a farmer in Michigan, where she grew up.Laura told us she had grown up in Laguna Beach. This is untrue. She attended Holly High School in Holly, Michigan and was born in that state.

The court ordered Montagu to pay alimony and child support, which he refused to do.  He also refused to pay other costs ordered paid by the court.  The court papers and transcripts, will be available soon.  If you are a journalist now working on an article contact me and these will be made available to you immediately. 

The only funds received by Wendy for the support of the children, who were handed over to her without any of their clothing or property, would be from the Monchester Trusts. 


On June 5th, 2009  Montagu informed the Manchester Trustees he had not been legitimately married to Wendy Buford Montagu and so his children were illegitimate and therefore could not receive payments from the Trusts.  For two years the children were left without support to augment their mother's small income from her job as a receptionist. 

Alex never personally paid any court ordered child or spousal support.

 Alexander believed he would receive the money which had previously provided for his children.  This was not to be.  


The Trustees filed a law suit to clear the way so they could provide payments to the children. The case was heard July 19, 2011  in the High Court of the Chancery, London, on the issue of the legitimacy of the two children of the non-marriage of Alex Montagu and Wendy Buford Montagu.  Both children were found to have rights as beneficiaries.  If you are a journalist presently doing research or writing a story we will send you the court documents, please contact us. 

Probable Motive for Montagu's actions
From the Manchester Trusts Montagu began to receive payments for his children with the birth of his son, Alex, in 1993.  According to Wendy he constantly nagged her to have more children for him.  Payments stop when a child turns 18 and since Alex has aged out his existence is ignored by his father.   Wendy believes his interest in the children was entirely financial.  


Now, any attention to the children is focused on his daughter, Ashley, on whose behalf payments are still received from the Manchester Trusts.  


Report to CPS and the Police 


March 12 Police stopped by the home of Wendy Montagu in Orange County, CA.  They told her they were doing a wellfare check, this requested by Alex Montagu.   Finding all was well, they left after  20 minutes.  Wendy had been making dinner for her children at the time of the police came by. 
             
During this period Child Protective Services received a call from Alex Montagu.  A file was opened, as is the required protocol. 


Visits to the family, Wendy and her two children from the marriage to Montagu, took place. 


Wendy learned of this when a card was left by the social worker on Tuesday, April 24th.  Wendy called the social worker and a visit was arranged for the next week, for Wednesday May 2nd.  


The social worker came to the home, spending time alone with Ashley and talking to Wendy.  She then informed Wendy she was very satisfied all was well and was closing the file Alex had caused to be opened. 


At the time the social worker was in the home the phone rang.  Wendy did not answer it.  Later, she found a message from Alex informing her CPS had called him and was taking Ashley away from her and he would be receiving physical custody.  This statement ignored the fact changes in custody take place through the court and not through CPS. 


UPDATE
Over the last several days the following text messages were received by Wendy Montagu and Ashley Montagu.  Ashley has expressed a wish not to have contact with her father as long as he is living with his present wife, Laura. 


Wendy has to communicate with Alex, as the father of her children.  Instead of handling these matters appropriately he evidently has Laura handle communications.

Subj: Texts to Ash


I don't have to explain anything to YOU Laura, bimbo!  Why didn't I go to England??  Well, could it be that I was home with the kids?? And someone had to work to provide medical insurance?  Daddy Trent?  I broke up with him LONG before I was with Alex.  You can leave him out of it.  It was the other way around!! Alex BEGGED me to marry him!!  I thought I was going to have a fairy tale wedding, what I got was far worse!!  I can change my name or not, the fact it makes you crazy pleases me.  I have said to you again and again, the financials are reported to DCSS, not CPS.  It just kills the two of you that you have no idea what the CHILDREN received!!  You can stew about that longer, after all what have you done for them?  In 3 years, you disgust me with your claims of loving them more than anything in the world Alex.  The text messages below Laura to a 12 year old are repulsive and the actual proof of parental alienation from a parent.  CPS visited us last week based on your outrageous claims.  File closed, unfounded! Harassment.  You sent the police to my home in March, they caught me alright!!  Cooking dinner for my children, in my pj's!!  Ashley was upstairs in her room doing her homework!!  They asked Ash a few questions and again cleared me.  Told me they had no intention of calling you back and playing into your childish games!! And yet you both continue to say they are coming after me and I'm in trouble?? Well, I've heard that for years now haven't I?  What must it be like in your world?  I will be opening a file with CPS, I hadn't before since it's not like he exercises his rights to visit!!  Why do I claim to have custody Laura??? Because I have full physical custody that's why!!  You simply look at Ashley as a dollar figure at this point Alex! You don't even know her!!  Laura your brain has turned to mush!  You have facts in front of you and refuse to believe.  But then you have no other choice, you are stuck with him.  No one else will take you. You really show a lot of class Laura!  NOT 

 
Subject: Texts to Ash
I think during her texts with Ash she thinks I take over the phone and she starts talking to me….Laura is saying this to a 12 year old, but then they claim I’ve alienated them from the kids?
