Judge Hennigan is as corrupt as the rest of the politicians in Tarrant County - serving no justice unless it has high price tag. If one is to get divorced in Tarrant County and has money, be prepared for a long and expensive case. Issues are created to make money for the court and the attorneys "in" with the judges. This is especially true if you are female. The good-ol-boy Texas legal system stinks and there is no true justice unless it is bought. Judges and attorneys have milked personal funds just to profit the court and its contingents. Judge Hennigan calls himself a "Family Court" representative, but he does not protect the rights and and issues surrounding the family, mainly women and children. Someone needs to do an detailed investigation of who really is profiting from the court antics. It certainly is NOT the family that resides within the Tarrant County court system.

I agree with the prior comment. I just went through a custody case with this so called judge hennigan. He absolutly is corrupt and also mentally unable to render a decision based on the "TRUE FACTS" of a case. He does not care about what the best interests of a child are! He is a mommy judge all the way. Unfortunatly my poor little girl is now suffering in the hands of a lying manipulative hateful woman who allows her husband to threaten my life and assult me and hit my little girl. This "Grudge Hennigan" needs to be taken off the bench. He must have had a bad childhood himself to make such poor decisions regarding innocent children.

Judge Hennigan is very corrupt!!! He's has cost my family and me a lot of heartache and money!

He threw away DNA ordered by his court and there you go.

Now the Attorney Generals office paid for this test to help get themselves out of the mix but no.... that was not what Hennigan wanted.

So he just threatened jail and forced a on the spot unannounced visitation during a hearing where the dna was supposed to be heard then forgot about that and then while the child was at the visitation he threw out the results!

Tell me how I can help..

I would like to get a group started to fight against this judge and the entire 324th. His associate judge is just as bad. This judge has issued an order against my wife at the request of her ex husband where she lost custody of her four children and when she has visitation i can't be anywhere around them. I have had to sleep in my car etc so my wife can see her kids. We have been married for 7 years. The reason was lies that he told the so called childrens counselor and that he manipulated the children into saying. They have since recanted their statements and stated that the father told them what to say. The judge refuses to speak to the children and will not force the addition of another counselor to speak to the. I have had two phycologocial evaluations and have been seeing a counselor for a year now. The evaluations and my counselor have stated in written statements that there is nothing wrong with me and in fact I would be a positive influence on my step children. The attorneys have stated that my wifes only hope in getting her kids back is to divorce me. The court orders my wife to see this so called counselor Mark Charbonnet who is only a social worker and pay him $220.00 per hour. This another example of this court taking care of their own. How many families are ordered to see him? My email is ladnel@sbcglobal.net

I'm ready to fight! I totally agree with the comment about mothers and children and his inability to judge based on FACTS!

Have some interesting information for you about my case and where it may be going. I think we know who's profiting from the person he thinks has the most money.

Time to fight for our children/families Rights!

Read your post a month or so ago and I got a response from another individual taken advantage by Hennigan.

Time to get a group together is what I was asked and wondered if you were for it.

This emotional and financial destruction and abuse of power has to stop!

I have evidence & ruling that are criminal. Contact me, I am putting together an effort to shut down and expose this abusive system. Hennigan & Poulos like many have a God Complex & know they can or could, they've gone to far though. there actions have destroyed the integrity of the judicial system. The administrative judges and others, not ALL of them but to many are equally a disgrace to OUR community by covering for these sick judges, but when judges go to far, so far that they're making an excuse or attempt to cover this up will bring federal officials, currently investigating & closely watching the opening they need to bring them all down & they really want to...
Contact me soon, I have people wanting to start writing an exposay type media story first them books.

Every one of you should send your letter and comments to the Attorney General of Texas, I trust him and tell him I agree with you. Every Judge who has ever served in Tarrant came from the "good old boy system" and he knows that, and its time for him to step i and d something about it.

I agree at least with the comments about the associate judge. I havent seen hennigan. She flew off the handle and ordered me supervised visitation (without details for fear) lets just say NO REASON WHATSOEVER! The opposing party was awarded custody although they are clearly unfit for several reasons. I cry everynight. the pain is more then one person should bare.

I completely agree. Except I am on the female side. I came out of an abusive and very controlling relationship that seemed of no concern of Hennigan. He took the attitude that we had a child together; therefore, figure it out. He then took 3 months to make a ruling on custody, I thought maybe because he was actually reading over submitted proof, wrong, he just forgot.

Hennigan is famous in the divorce community as the most bizzare of an already bizzare unfare group. They are little gods but are are a bunch of pigs. Take away their judge status they make great candidates for frequent beat downs for those who would abuse animals.
Count me in if you want to protest in front of the court house, and any other house. I have many wonderfull things to say about that animal along with the rest of those animals.

I have heard the worst stories from tarrant county family courts. If this is law it is worthless to us.

Judge Hennigan should be disbarred. He is senile and needs to retire. Awarded custody to a abusive father and called the mother a liar in court. He is not mentally able to make a fair decision. Case went for 3 yrs and he contradicted himself so many times in court. He uses his bench to get revenge and make rulings that are personal. He should not be anywhere near a courthouse. To say that he is bizzare is putting it lightly. He needs to be run out of town.

I have been thru finger as well, I was threaten to face jail time because I reported to CPS THAT my daughter was abused and care flighted to Hospital for blunt force trauma, I was held in contempt for protecting my daughter from her abusive father. Her dad has not been around for 6 years, and yet the judge gave custody to her father. And I was ordered into counseling, calm anger management classes, parental facilitator, and love & logic classes......you name it, I did it!....

"Garbage" AKA Hennigan is a repub in tarrant and will continue re-election because he represents the culture of the voter. Dallas county would have voted out such garbage long ago. Garbage can safely ignore the family laws of Texas due to the unwillingness of the appelate courts to hear or consider family court appeals. Appeals judges are a bunch of repubs keeping life long jobs due to
endless tarrant re-election, and we know garbage will be the only one on the ballot for 324th. Repubs in tarrant stick together and is one of the last places in the country where this is still true. The only way an tarrant elected repub can go away is if they fall out of line with
the inner core of "annoited" repubs.
A tidbit: Garbage has substancial favor from the repub women divorce lawyers association.
Get one of them as a lawyer and go jury trial. Garbage may not show up for trial or even overturn jury decision even though he does not have legal authority. He may even instruct the sheriff/bailiff to remove jury member's children if he does not like their decision. In tarrant, he can do that.
