The hearing was at 3:30 on the Friday before a three day weekend, and she just wanted to get out and go to her vacation.
And people wonder why we despise the judiciary.

There's so much I want to say but it'd be deleted by the mods. Chris, if there's anything we can do, please let us know. Rudy and I are behind you all the way.`

She doesn't believe she has the authority to do what's in the best interest of children? Why is she a judge, again? And if, as she seemed to suggest, wasn't entirely certain of her authority (or prohibitions against it), she should damn well have taken the time to educate herself, or recused herself and given the case to a competent judge.

Been following this for a while, and I'm pissed and disappointed at this turn of events. Sorry it went the way it did, Chris. Godspeed and good luck in the next round.

Man I wish I didn't know what you are going through. An incompetent judge is one thing and an incompetent father another but to go through what you guys are with the additional challenge of an unorganized international court structure on this is seems insane.

I am hoping Erin and I have better luck next week for our hearing. If Erin hadn't lost TEMPORARILY lost primary residential parent status after moving 130 miles from her previous address because the judge "was offended that 2 months after orders were set "they" were making her hear this case again" I wouldn't believe it. But man I know better.

A judges "best interest" of the child is directly comparable to a politicians "best interest " of the country.

I am really, really sorry. This hits closer to home than I care to tell right now, but suffice it to say I've been there, done that, and my heart aches for you both.

And may I say, from a moral point of view, I think there can be no justification for shoving snack cakes up your action.

Insert long string of expletives here.

As the others said, good luck and let us know if we can help.

Is that judge in an elected position? If so, I'd have plans in the back of my mind (for AFTER you get the kids back) to ensure that they at least go through hell the next election, if not out on their ass entirely.

I couldn't even imagine being in that situation. For what it's worth you've got my sympathy and my best wishes. I hope this all works out, and I know you and Mel will do whatever needs to be done for the good of the girls.
