How does this judge usually rule on matters of child support? Does he go sternly on the offender or just pat them on the back and say pay your support? My ex wrote me a letter a few months ago, stating he was going to pay me less child support because my insurance company would not pick up our son because he was on Tenncare. I had asked Tenncare to drop him to add him to my insurance but they took their sweet time. So, my ex retaliated with the support without asking the court to modify it. The way I see it, I did what I was supposed to do, and then this jerk thought he could do what he wanted. He has contempt charges against him right now and has failed after 57 days to even answer my petition. I go before Judge Wooten very soon. any guesses as to what Judge Wooten will do with my ex?

John Wootten is known to have little respect for law, and beyond using his judicial robe as a shield for doing whatever he wants, he has little in common with other duty bound judges who DO have respect for our laws. You sound as if you simply want some fair play and consideration from your ex-spouse, and I wish it were possible that you both could reconcile your needs without having to go through the potential anguish of a bad judgment from Wootten, but as stated, he has no respect for the law, unless he can use it for his own purposes. Let us hope he finds no personal interest in your case, because if he does, your facts, the law, and principles of fairness will have no value to him, and he will do whatever he wants to achieve his own ends.

ha, wish I had known this long ago, but I'm sure learning aren't I? As for working at anything with the narcissistic sociopath I have connections to with having a child with him, he can go to HELL..there's nothing to work out at this point, after he's abused and abandoned our son..but you know what's a bitch, the fact He thinks and this judge thinks it's all gonna go away...we will see about that since the statue of limitations in TN state the child can bring forth abuse charges the day before they turn 18.. Someone better RUN!!!

yeah, I've seen now how he rules..but you know, he didn't listen to any of the child abuse charges I have against the ex with our son?? No joke..police reports, medical records, counseling records, photographs from the Lpd, my own photographs, tape recordings, video recordings, and witnesses both professional and experts and even friends and other family..thrown out like my son doesn't matter..thrown out as if he deserves to be abused..thank god there's a statue of limitations on child abuse in TN..in the meantime, somebody better RUN while he can because this isn't going to be tolerated any further judge or no judge!!!! Lets see how this plays out eventually..
