The judge wanted compelling evidence of the clear physical threats to the petitioners and cared very little for any activity that occurred before June 9 of this year. That's the date of the couple's mandatory mediation and settlement conference. The two appeared amicable, in that they waived their mutual declarations of financial disclosure, and had been able to come up with up a binding Settlement Agreement. It would appear the court officers mistook their eagerness to be out of each other's lives (particularly Garrett's understandable enthusiasm to be rid of her) for cordial amicability.
Here is the report from the June 9 conference. (click on image to enlarge)
Incidentally, here (for the first time anywhere) is the Lubbens' Divorce Settlement Agreement:
I've highlighted the section regarding their eldest daughter's 2015 Jeep Wrangler:
According to Garrett, he"gave her everything up there [in Springville] in the divorce" for a good reason: so that the and his girls could "start over with minimal memories remaining and zero spousal support."
Notice the document contains the clause:
Each party agrees to execute or deliver any instrument, furnish any information, or perform any other act reasonably necessary to carry out the provisions of this agreement without undue delay or expense.This is important because 1) Shelley has taken no apparent steps to turn the Jeep over to Garrett and/or her own daughter via the California DMV and the loan company. (Their daughter drives it exclusively, and Garrett makes all the payments); and 2) approximately one hour after court let out, Shelley came to Garrett and the kids' house to confiscate Teresa’s Jeep from their driveway!
When asked for comment one day prior to the hearing, Mr. Lubben had replied:
My guess is Shelley will show up with a domestic violence advocate from Tulare County and make a plea to confiscate her daughter’s jeep that happens to be in her name.He sure called it. Knowing that Garrett had put down $20k + on the Jeep, Shelley Lubben was willing to fuck over her own daughter to sell it back and pocket the cash from its equity.
So, Shelley called for a police escort to remove the Jeep which is in her name -- but neglected to inform them that, per the divorce settlement, the Jeep is Garrett's property. That's our Shelley.

She had Jan Villarubia with her today who was eager to drive off with a $50,000 Jeep. [I'll bet... see here and here -- ed.] My girls were extremely scared and when I came home after being called, Shelley was standing on the sidewalk 2 doors down with 2 police cars and officers who read the divorce settlement and sent Shelley away. All new lows for her which we experienced at the Lubben Haus today.

Over on Facebook, con artist Shelley was still plugging away for the rubes:
God is SOOOO good to me.... The judge just threw out the case. And here's the cool part, there was an empty broken chair there and it was the only one no one sat in and I was feeling nervous and the LORD said to me, "Don't worry Shelley I'm sitting right next to you." sniff sniff He is so good. Thank you for your prayers. They mean the WORLD to me. Maybe you can pray specifically for me to sell my ranch or that God would provide a way for me to have a good income since your prayers work so well!LOL it always comes down to money for our Shelley, doesn't it? Always has and always will.
New routesThe hearing today concluded with the judge insisting that if Garrett wanted to protect his minor child, then he would be well advised to use the child custody path, which does make a lot of sense in the long run, particularly in light of the blockbuster charges against Shelley that Garrett has already disclosed in writing under penalty of perjury.
This mess ain't over by a long shot.
UPDATE: I am informed that the day after Shelley failed to steal her daughter's Jeep, she called her daughter a "fucking bitch" at CarMax. Nice, huh?
