He is a family court judge that does not make a decision based on the best intrest of the children but on his personal views of the parents and how he thinks they should treat each other instead of how the child is being treated.

I have looked online at who this Judge is and I have asked around. You are not the only one that feels they were done wrong in his court room. Any one who wants to see who this is just go to the 15th District Court website.

I was in front of Judge Blanchet several years ago. My ex-husband physically abused me and my children. A psychologist he ordered us to go to advised that my ex NOT be around my children UNSUPERVISED. However, because of WHO my husband knows, Judge Blancet did not follow the psychologist recommendation but used HIS own judgement instead. My ex lives out of State and every year I have to send my four children from ages 8-13 on a plane to meet him for two weeks. My ex is not required to give me his address NOR phone number. My children are scraed of him and don't like to go...but I am court ordered....My children are still seeing counselors for what they see go on there. He doesn't abuse me anymore but they have to watch him ABUSE his new girlfriends when they visit. On top of that, sinice he doesn't live in the state his parents get his visitation rights of every other weekend in his place. How absurd- a grandparent shouldn't have these rights!!! I don't have the money to fight this and so it has been this way since court. My children are the ones who suffered and are still suffering because Judge Blanchet didn't take theadvise of the psychologist. My question is why do they request professionals be involved in evaluations and counseling when the Judge doesn't even CARE what they say????? My children got no justice with Blanchet!!!! He doesn't have a conscious is all I can say.....I'll never return to court in front of him....my kids never had a chance! My faith in the system went out the window with his ruling!

I have been through something similar with Judge Blanchet. My ex-husband hurt me and my child, but Blanchet concluded that I was making false allegations and would not allow me to protect my family. Since then, the damage to our lives is beyond repair, and I don't know what to do. I have to abide by what he says even though he is not a fair or honest judge. He has really hurt my family.

He will not allow me to have a relationship with my child no matter how much I abide by what he instructs me to do. I have been disrespected by Blanchet and my ex-husband. I am a fit parent, with a very stable job, with no criminal record. He won't allow me the chance have a happy life with my child and has seperated me from my child. All of my life I anticipated having children and he has really turned our lives upside down. I have never been so disappointed in my life in Judge David Blanchet. But to him, that doesn't matter at all. It is an injustice. I no longer trust the judicial system since my experience with this judge.

Ladies, I so agree, Judge David Blanchet is either a on the take or incompetent of being a judge. I have a story that will scare you. I know the truth of a divorce in Blanchets court. He is not for the wife of the kids, I feel he is gay and has an affair with a few lawyers. Sad day, I have NO trust in the law in his district. he is on the take or can not do his job. I know of folks lying under oath, but they have the money, so nothing happens. He needs to GO!! Alone with his boyfriend Miller from Crowley, the one that had his on divorce from sleeping with black girls.

The only thing we can do is keep on talking and if he runs for re election, hit the streets and tell our storys of the truth.

ummm Could you like give us a reason why he should be removed ? Did he screw you over or something ? I get the feeling you are bitter about something. You didn't even leave a comment.
Not bitter here, just was a wittness to a lot of wrong in his court room. He did not even listen to or look at the evidence. he did what he want. So wrong. I sat there and had to watch him help the guilty party. Its ok, He will get his day, God is watching, and election time is in a few years.

Its really a shame that we keep electing judges that have no business being on the bench. That needs to change.

These sorry azzz judges need to be appointed, rather than elected. People put them in, and end up unopposed for twenty more years. its a popularity contest, getting elected has nothing to do with Skills.

I have a horror story myself.
Ive been waiting almost 120 days for a decision to be made for child custody.
Not to mention, my children were wrongfully given to my ex husband as well.

Heres a little secret you should know. Lets say the judgement is not one that you like. They prepare the papers for all to sign. he signs it, and they are waiting for your signature. Pretend you are going to adhere to the new order. Adhere to the new order. Temporarily. he will think its going his way. If he has a lazy lawyer, the attorney may not care or push for the losing party to sign the new order. Its his business to make sure it gets entered into the record as an enforceable order. Let some time go by, and then just go ahead and disregard the order. He'll pull out his papers and bring them to the police. When they show you the papers, tell them that was never signed by the judge. So then he'll pull out the old papers, and then you can say "those do not apply anymore, we have a new order, which he failed to make sure got signed by a judge." there becomes nothing to enforce. At least for a while.
A few of you attorneys may argue this point, Bu this happened in my favor a few years ago. Then just two years ago, it happened in favor of my sister.
Maybe this is co-incidence, but it sure worked out well for us.

I have a friend that is going through a horrible custody/divorce/relocation trial right now. this judge is doing NOTHING for her. It makes me sick and I don't know what to do to help her. She has no money to pay for an attorney. I am all for fathers' rights but not when the father is scum and only wants to hurt the mother and have all the control. For some reason this judge loves him though. What can she do?
