Every judge and lawyer ought o have to study this. My god, it’s like they described exactly what happened to me, when I went to court with my first husband.
He had the lawyer, and I was sitting their, like a lamb about to be slaughtered. He had the job, and I was “just” a stay at home mom. He lied, and the judge believed him. He and his lawyer got to present their case for 50 minutes, out of the 60 minutes, that we had alloyed for the lynching…oops! I meant, for the hearing.
Flat out showed the judge irrefutable evidence that my ex was lying, and perjured himself on his court documents. The judge said that wasn’t within the scope of the case.
I handed the judge a stack of over a dozen character witness affadivits…he said he hardly see how that mattered.
I showed him the court printout of how my husband had a lien on his condo, he cause of failure to pay child support ( for SEVEN YEARS), and owed still the judge acted as though bing a deadbeat dad was the most honorable thing in the world.
In the end, my ex got custody of my daughter… The judge was severely biased against homeschooling and I home schooled my daughter….
They uprooted her from her home, and family, and moved handed her over to my ex, where at the time, she even had to share a small bedroom with her STEP-brother, and half-brother (and she was almost TWELVE, at that time), even though she had her own room at my house….
I wouldn’t trust the criminal justice system, or the police to keep me and my children safe if our lives depended on it….oh wait….hmmmmm
The whole thing was a mockery.
