Below are questions you want to think about and items you want to keep a keen eye on for your protection:
Does she Pre-Read Court Documents? .. Or does she just pull it up on her computer and start talking?
The Most Common trait of the Napa Family Court is to read court filings while handling the case. The SCARY part is a Judge following the direction of the Attorney without confirming the real Truth! Imagine how a Judge would feel if a Surgeon did not look at the Judges Health file and Just started Operating and Then asked questions while operating!
Does she favor and or treat some attorney's different than others... IF so, this could be a sign of favortism / baised towards that attorney / law firm. Does she treat Men or Woman different?
Does she allow both Men and Woman equal time with their children? Does she feel that children should be with both Mom and Dad? or More to Mom or Dad? Does he favor Women or Men more?
Does he allow one parent to throw out random allegations without confirming if the court is being used as a tool to destroy the other parent and or allow Attorney's to FUEL the case / Game the System / so that the Attorney's can Line their Financial Pockets?
DON'T BE FOOLED - Napa Family Law Judges have frequently shown that they allow those to LIE in court and DO NOTHING! I don't know if this Judge allows this, however there are several Judges who do. Imagine showing the Court PROOF of them being LIED TO by your Spouse and THEY DO NOTHING! .. and help line the financial pockets of the attorneys?... and they Call the Napa Court "JUSTICE".
Does she allow Attorney's to GAME THE SYSTEM? Any Judge worth their Salt, knows the GAME... so the question then becomes, does the Judge allow attorney's to twist, destroy families, take children away from a loving parent .. ALL FOR THE "GAME" of FAMILY COURT. THIS IS NOT A GAME! Keep great notes. You may need to get court documents to show / proof of any bias and or lack of following their own rules & protocalls to properly handle your case.IF you notice Biased in the Judge, immediately get others in the court that would experience the same biased and have everyone file their own compliants to the Judicial Branch! This is the only way to Stop Judge Bias - One compliant won't be enough.
