Does anyone know if this guy is fair to mothers during custody battles. My niece (who lives in Texas now) will have to face this judge in March. So far he has ordered her to go back to WV on every school break (she goes to school full-time and works full-time)and the father of the child hasn't had to pay a dime in support or even helping my niece with travel$$$. I am just wondering about this guy.

Why would she move her child so far away from its father to begin with? There are schools in WV. He should pay support but he also has a right to see his child. He's the parent too. I suspect if the judge has ordered her to pay travel expenses, its probably because she chose to leave and create the expense. I don't think another judge will expect him to pay for travel when the mother chose to create the distance. Her choice, her expense.

I'm sure she's a good mom but she chose to tie herself to this man by having a child with him. Just because she no longer loves him doesn't mean her child shouldn't. She has a responsibility to not interfere with that relationship, money issues aside.

I'm a divorced mom who's ex owes over $30k in back child support and he went years w/o even calling my kids but when he did, I let my kids decide. I didn't interfere. I picked him to have kids with (not my best decision!), so I still bear the burden of that mistake. That's life. We don't get to decide he's no longer a dad because we're over him. Even if he's a jerk, unfortunately. We also don't have the right to say he's responsible for paying for the child, but has no say in any of the decisions.

This guy might be a dirtbag and if so, her child will figure that out. But by moving the child away, she's making him the victim. Her child may really resent her later.

I've been reading crap on this site for a couple of months now and this is one of the very few thoughtful and intellectualy (?) honest posts that I've seen. Congratulations for not being the typical bottom feeder that this website attracts.

The reasons she moved to Texas is for school work and to get away from the drugs and other stuff that the ex was doing. On top of that the ex moved out when she was 8 months preg. with their son. The only time he went to court was after she went to get child support.
The ex was all for her moving to Texas until he was served for CS. She has NO intentions on keeping the baby from him, but he needs to take care of his baby also and IT SHOULD NOT BE LEFT UP TO HER ONLY.

Also what does this have to do with the Judge I asked about??

Snyder was the judge appointed as judge during a dvp with my ex. I went to court to have the dvp dropped because while we were waiting on the court date, we had talked everything out, he came to my house for dinner and while there asked me to hit a joint that he was smoking, and all lies aside, I hit the joint a couple of times. Our court date was a few says later. I spoke with my ex on the phone on my way to the courthouse and he asked if I had "flushed"...I hadnt. My ex had me court ordered to take a urine test, in which I was honest when asked what illegal drugs I had done, and it was positive for marijauana. This man ripped my three small children 7, 4, and 18 months, away from me with ten minutes notice and gave them to the man that verbally abused them so bad that it caused me to end our 10 year marriage. I was told by his own mother that I was no type of a mother as long as I kept the children in the same house with this man. After been the primary caretaker, and a full-time mommy to them, I was allowed to see them one day a week, for two hours, supervised at a visitation center ran by the ywca...this was two years ago....I have passed EVERY supervised random drug screen since (approx 25) and am only allowed to see them 8 hours, one day a week. Your niece needs to motion the court to change her judge....I waited to long so now my case has been moved to circuit where Snyder and his evil, terrible, horrible protege, Barb Utt are trying to say that I have abused and neglected my children and are handing it over to CPS. This is actually a blessing because I will finally be able to get away from Snyder. I know of 7 CPS reports filed on my childrens father by teachers, neighbors, and his family, and Snyder refuses to allow the reports to be filed in my case. I think that this man is opure evil and that when he dies, he will join Lucifer in the pits of hell. He has ruined my life and continues to damage my children in order to keep his pockets full!!!!!

Thank you, you2. For some reason only a few lawyers will take cases that go in front of this guy. We finally found one, he doesn't seem to worried about it though, since the "dad" split before the baby was born. I think this is just a play so daddy doesn't have to pay child support on his kid, which he never has anyway!!

Let me tell u all something. Judge Snyder is a bigamous. I am from Illinois married man from WV. He was a paid fireman here in Illinois when we met and married. He lost his job due to his lies and laziness. When he lost his job first thing he wanted to do was run to mommy n daddy in WV. My choi e from his mouth leave ur family friends and whole life to go to Wv or we divorce. Finding out i was prego I left everything I knew so that my daughter would have a family. He went crazy. Even to the point of waving loaded gun in front of our infant child. Several restraining oreders and a clearly an unstable man. Judge Snyder was our judge from the beginning. I had noone and nothing n WV my ex granted me permission to move bak to Illinois. I was meeting him in Indianapolis to give him an unscheduled visit wanting to be fair. And after a five hr drive and even tho she ate and was changed during trip was hungry and wet upon arrival. He went to the court n Judge granted him temp custody. That was 2 yrs ago. He ordered Duane Rosenlieb guardian ad Leiden who both judge and guardian refuse to communicate with me. Since my ex has moved to NC. Judge fought to keep jurisdiction. I am only allowed to c her if I go to WV. Tell me this judge is fair. Bull. He is clearly against woman.

Im.in the same boat two yrs nxt month. Rediculous any judge or any judicial syst would take a child away from their mommy for 2 yrs and give no reasons. Theyare clearly not looking out for the childrens best interest. And my poor baby cant imagine what psych probs she is going to have over this

You too? He was also investigated and removed himself from my case. Tony had his law license revoked.

I seriously doubt all truths are being told here. I know Snyder personally and if your a dead beat parent you are right, you don't want him having your case.

Well, I can tell you that he is a horrible judge. Took him 4 years to settle my divorce because he cannot make a decision. Now I am back in court and have been treated like a criminal. Ex husbands girlfriend make derogatory comments about me on FB and I told him that any extra time I had been giving was gone if she was there. I never took it away from him and told him that he could have them as long as she was not there. He apologized for her behavior and blah, blah, but in the end, he chose her over his children. To retaliate, he took me to court to have the parenting plan and child support adjusted. He had children 5 days a month for over 6 yrs. Thanks to Snyder, he now has them 15 days a month, actually more than me. In true Snyder fashion, he had a hearing without us in the room and off record. When I spoke to my atty, I was told one thing, but the signed order was COMPLETELY different. Snyder was getting ready to leave on vacation for two weeks and signed it (not sure he even read it). It gave the ex EVERYTHING he asked for and then some. I went to get a copy of the transcript, which didn't exist because he had it off record and it was not recorded. I did not follow order and tried to get emergency hearing. He appointed guardian ad Litem Jeff Woods, who is also a complete jerk and had prior experience with. I asked him to be removed and a new guardian appointed and was told no. The order stayed exactly the same and I have to keep Wood. I also have to pay ex's atty fees and guardian fees. While walking out of court room both men asked me to give them the money now or threatened to garnish my wages. Unreal! I have filed a complaint with the Judiciary Committee regarding the first hearing. Waiting on response. This man does not need to be a Judge. I went from having my children most of the time to only having 3 days every two weeks with them alone. Every day the ex is involved somehow. We need to let people know what kind of man he is and have him voted out next election...

We got lucky in the end because the dad gave up ALL rights for custody. He still has never paid a dime for his son, but know who gives a shit.

It seems that Snyder is a dads judge! Seems that 15 days a month is a little out of control, how can the kids EVER get into any kind of home life groove!!!

Yeah Whiteout I've read it all and just has I thought when 2 different law firms refused to take my money to help my niece. I wanted to know about this judge and why the law firms refused to go in front of him. I believe I have my answers about him, he seems to be a money grabbing ass hole and so are the Ad Lithens he appoints

We were do happy when "Brad" dropped all this costudy stuff, but I believe that Snyder was leaning toward our side, because of the rulings he did make! Daddy's visitation would ONLY be held on FACETIME (iPhone) or by Skype. The father had NEVER done anything to the boy, but to be honest he showed up for court waisted! Their had to be something for Snyder to do what he did and to also go against Ad Lithens. She wanted my niece to fly to WV every weekend (from Texas) just so daddy could see him for a few hours!!

Thank you all for your warning and info on this douche bag judge.
