All of the Wayne county judges are corrupt. Its all about who you know out there. I know of a family that that county torn apart for no good reason other than the mother was mouthy to them because she was tired of being falsely accused if things and even had proof. Judge Lewis would not hear or look at any of the proof. Of course the opposite side had a lawyer and the mother didn't. The father couldn't even pass a drug test bur yet the dumb ass judge let him have the kids. Needless to say him and his girlfriend stayed so drugged up that they didn't even feed the kids. They were sticks and bones within months. The kids even told a counselor and Lewis still let him keep them. All this because the mother stood up for her rights and for her children and told the judge the law.

The lack of competition for 1. Other than that I can't understand it myself. I know for a fact he has made judgements where he blatantly ignored the law just to have those judgements overturned by a higher court.

And it's a fact that if you walk into his court without representation, even if you are in the right and have proof, you are screwed. A change is way past due in Wayne county.

Sounds like a bunch of sour grapes to me. I've known Steve and his family for many years and have always found them to be a good and caring bunch of folks. Seems like most of the posts here are from the ones who have lost in court and have decided that grousing about the judge is somehow cool. Steve has always been a fair man. Maybe he's not right all the time. Who is? I will assure you though that he decides cases based on the facts and if you lost then you probably deserved to lose.

Take a look at all the forums and see how many threads there are about "Steve". After that, look through all of them and see how many other family law masters are discussed. Ol' Steve may be a good buddy to you, but he doesn't perform his job properly. Right now, he has taken the federal right away from a child that does not want to see her father because he abused her. She is of age to say she doesn't want to see him but this judge has forced her into seeing him, causing her grades to lower and to suffer depression. I know this kid and this family and I know that whatever has happened in that family doesn't matter given the fact that the girl is of age to make the decision not to see that parent and is being forced to. There is no explanation for that whatsoever. These aren't sour grapes, I have never been before him other than when I had a woman arrested during her custody battle for a B&E, felony and 5 misdemeanors for bounced checks, and Lewis told the mother to post her bond and go get her kid from the father's house, whom she was in court with because the father wanted custody since the mom was abusing pills, at the very moment that she was arrested. What kind of judge does that??? Tell your buddy Steve he is a piece of crap and we blame him for his abuse of these children and of the family court system.

I went before Judge Lewis, seeking custody of a loved one and he gave me custody with no problem, but i can tell you this if there is drugs involved Judge Lewis won't turn the children over to the parent that is doing the drugs, he is a good Judge and takes everything in to consideration, so maybe thoes of you that are mad at the Judge decision, didn't get him the right information, before court, something wrong, i never saw this judge before i went to court and have not seen him since, however i do think he is a very very good judge.

Any allegations of abuse or neglect (i.e. Drug abuse), automatically sends the case up to circuit court.

If the allegation of abuse was unsubstantiated, it is no wonder the father has custody. If the child is 14 (legal age to make the decision not to see the other parent) then I do not see a judge going against the child's wishes. Also, you may want to check the report of the guardian ad litem. Perhaps the kid told you one thing and the guardian ad litem another. Parents like to make custody a battle between parents and put the child in the middle. It becomes more about the parents, and not the child.

If you go to court without a lawyer, you can't blame the court. There are specific procedures to follow. If you don't know the procedures and when to bring up issues and the proper way to do so, it is your own fault. The rules for Family Court in WV are posted on the Supreme Court of WV's website. If you can't afford an attorney, at least prepare yourself by reading the rules. There is no excuse not to. The judge is not there to be a friend, he or she has proper protocol to follow. In every instance of a complaint about an outcome, I have found that the complainer does not know the law. You can also appeal any ruling to circuit court or the wv supreme court.

The better idea is to always have a lawyer. Then you will not lose in a hearing and try to blame everyone else but yourself.
