Changedagain and Invisible from 2014: Donna and Gary divorced many years before Hargrave Family Ministries existed. It had been Church of His Holy Presence. But, even though my opinion is that there has been fraud/tax fraud in handling the funds of HFM, I am sure Gary would have been able to prevent Donna from sharing in the church property/properties. I doubt she wanted to anyway.
Because Dawn was adopted by Donna's second husband, Gary had no parental rights and NO parental obligation. The stories I've heard is that Gary wasn't able to have visitation with his baby daughter because Marilyn felt a demon spirit coming through her. Gary probably paid some (small) child support up to the time Dawn was adopted, but I don't know any facts. His position in the church would have allowed him to manipulate how his income appeared - and of course, he had married Marilyn, who had everything from JRS, and Dawn would not be entitled (under California law) to property that belonged to Marilyn.
The whole thing sucks. Thank God Gary Hargrave's current stepson has his birth father fully involved and engaged in his life. Gary's track record as a father, stepfather, and apostolic fathering ministry is grim.
