On June 13, 2008 I amended
my complaint against Allen E. Kaye to include an investigation of an attorney named Patrick Synmoie. Mr.
Synmoie is the supervising attorney for the New York City Clerk’s Office, Marriage License Bureau.
On June 12, 2008, after conferring with one of her college friends, my
daughter Tara told me that she and her friend believe that the marriage license and officiant certificate appeared to have
been forged. She said her friend explained the dates stamped on the marriage license is not legally
consistent with the date stamped on the Officiant’s Statement. For myself, I also noted that the portions of the
marriage certificate appeared to be illegible.
When I called the NYC Clerk’s Office to speak with
Mr. Synmoie, I asked him if he could give me a copy of everything in the files. I also asked him if
there were copies of the original documents that my husband used to verify his identity. Mr. Synmoie said
that there are no copies of my husband’s identification. He said that he could only give me a copy of my marriage license.
When I explained to him that I could not find the name “Godwin Uzamere’ listed anywhere in the United States
even after using several internet search engines, he discounted my allegation by stating that if the name is on the marriage
license, that my husband must have submitted proof of his identity. When I spoke with Mr. Synmoie today,
he all but refused to allow me to make arrangement to see the originals.
While I was speaking with Mr. Synmoie, I taped the conversation I had with him (I have the voice recording configured to play
continuously so if you do not wish to here it, turn down the volume).
I do not know what to believe. All I know for sure is that
“Godwin” is not my husband’s real name, that on June 12, 2008 Mr. Synmoie said that the files do not have
copies of my husband’s identification, that none of certified documents I obtained from the City Clerk’s office
have my signature and that as of today, Mr. Synmoie will not allow me to view the originals.
