The state law is 1 and under for overnight visits.. So it could go either way.. If dad hasn't had a relationship and you can PROVE you have tried to encourage it.. They will hear you out.. If dad proves you haven't allowed it.. Judge will see it dads way

I can prove it, but like I said he is quite a few states away.

Thanks for your help

The problem with this judge is that he pretty much does what he wants to do and he gets away with it. Here is what to expect:
- Expect a lot of hearings in which you never see him. He just talks with the attorneys. You will miss work time and time again, for "hearings" that will never occur.
- You will have multiple "final" hearings.
- He will want to maintain the status quo. Even if you file motions, even if the other side doesn't respond, don't expect a decision from him.
- If you're a lawyer he likes, you can ignore orders to be prepared for hearings, file responses weeks late...no consequences.
- Expect a simple divorce to drag out for a year and a half. Expect a complex divorce to drag on for years.
- Don't expect decisions even if the evidence is overwhelmingly in your favor. This judge will do everything he can to avoid making a decision. You can file motion after motion, and the other side can respond weeks late, but you still will not get a decision.
- As my attorney has said, it's very challenging to practice in Kanawha County in front of this judge -- because nothing ever gets done.

Sure as hell Tony Serreno made more than his fair share of donations as political contributions under others names. Is that not pocket lining? Then he was founded to have ex parte communications with snyder and deciding on hearings before they ever took place. Snyder was investigated and snyder did recuse himself from my case. I hope his jury finds him guilty and he is removed from the bench.

He should have been suspended a long time ago. Charged with battery he could go to jail, but I am sure that won't happen in Kanawha County Magistrate Court. Those Magistrates are too afraid to do their job after what happened to Carol Fouty. She was an elected judge just like him and she was suspended without pay after the WV supreme court administrator read an article in the Daily Mail - I never did understand that one, however, Judge snyder should be immediately removed from the bench. He is no better than Mark Plants or Dan Holstein, so now Supreme court do your duty. Rid Kanawha County of this corrupt judge.

Carol Fouty was NOT fired due to an Article in the newspaper. No Reporter holds that kind of Power. A reporting article, may lead to INQUIRIES, that leads to an Investigation, that may lead to termination, but it is a time consuming process. Carol Fouty was removed due to her OWN repeated, Lapses of Judgment, Loss of Propriety of her position, and poor choices. In other words, she got too comfortable with the repeat offenders, she was charged to protect the rest of us from.....

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!!!!!
Barbara Utt was once married to a Charleston Police Office, but he dumped her for messing around on him. I cannot believe Judge Snyder is still on the bench. He has been charged with battery on a nurse at CAMC and the WV Supreme Court Administrator continues to allow him to stay in his same position. Well, so much for WV's Court system. They are as corrupt as Mark snyder.

The only problem that I've experienced after numerous appearances before him are that he doesn't like to make an order and he wants everybody to be happy and sing kumbaya when he finally does

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.
But here is a truth, my soon to be ex-daughter in law was in contemp of court for failing to appear after she fled the state and basically kidnapped my grandkids. She was ordered to come back to wv and the kids were to remain here until the divorce court in Jan. They went to court this morning, and she walked out with a smile on her smug face and is being allowed to take the kids to Texas until the end of jan. Apparently it was decided that putting a "band aid" on the case was the best thing to do (right before the holidays).My son who is great father and role model to those kids (serving our country and state in the army natl gaur) apparently has no rights as a father whatsoever. Judge Snyder failed to make the right decision for the kids, the court does not have the best interests of the children in mind. The children are at risk being with their mentally ill (proven) mother who is on anti-depressants and has graves disease. She has never been a good role model for my precious grand children who live in complete and utterly chaotic & filthy conditions(proof provided to state app atty). Truly dissapointend in our legal system and judge snyder.

Wow Snyder must had me in the giving mood because it is Christmas Time. We ended up sueing the state of WV to have the cases settled in Texas. It took us over 8 months just for Texas to finally treat West Virginia like a step sister and took custody. Snyder fought us and Texas tooth and nail to keep our world upside down, but finally it just ended one day.
