PA state residents-Family Court -Custody
I have had this female judge that is biased against me. I have noticed her slightly flirt with my daughters' father. I was screamed at for addressing her as "ma'am" while my mother addressed her as ma'am within minutes and no screaming at my mother. He has addressed her as ma'am and has never been put in his place. No male judge ever disciplined me for addressing him as "sir".
I have been physically and emotionally abused by this man for over a decade now, I had a domestic abuse advocate in court with me and this judge told her to get out.
Recently my daughter reported to several authority figures he best her on her head with a rolled up newspaper until she cried, ran off and his from him. CYS and the Judge do not believe a rolled up newspapesr as a weapon!!!! Hasn't anyone seen up Jason Bourne in the knife fight? Jason beat the man that had the knife with a rolled up magazine. There are self defense classes teaching people how to defend themselves with a rolled up newspaper/magazine. Paper is a wood byproduct.
He has also told her " Don't tell your mom or else" with many other related versions.
I am collecting SSDI and my Masters degree: the funds are not there to hire any lawyer. Legal aid does not accept custody cases and pro bono is 40 an hour. 20 hours of representation is a month of income.
I could not even protect her by obtaining a PFA.
This past Friday court again, he filed contempt on me and yes it was dismissed with MY BURDEN of proof not his.He also lied on stand and said his 12 year old daughter is a liar. The judge asked me why have I not filed a modification? My thoughts were whats the point you are looking out for his interests not my daughtersor mine...
My daughter has been in counseling since the beating incident and the doctors recommended no more visitation or supervised visitation as Devy was deemed to be mature enough to make that decision. The judge refused to even see the recommendaions, but instead started screaming I am the judge I make the rules I overrule CYS and all doctors. I will have you arrested!!!! Then she took my daughter into her chambers without any legal counsel or child advocate. My child came out crying. She said that lady is going to make me go with that man! I am afraid of him. He is going to hurt me.
I need help getting a new family judge appointed in that county or a changevof venue in my county for a new judge.
The behaviors I have been observing for years under this judge have been harmful and could be detrimental to my child's wellbeing.I have to force my child to go with him even though I know I could be putting her in harms way because this judge is God or I will go to jail: even though I have CYS and psychological professionals advising me otherwise. I have to send her next weekend.
