I haven't checked this site for awhile. I think Judge Ukena knows right from wrong but in my case he was intimidated by Erin Cartwright allowing her ultimately to intimidate him enough tp even break Illinois Law when he granted the motion Erin Cartwright put before him two years after he didn't rule on the motion when I had an attorney....we responded to her motion to make me pay (in addition to tens of thousands I've already paid...can't even talk about makes me physically ill) Essentially, according to the law a judge cannot impose attorney fees on someone unless he does it EXPEDIOUSLY.....to avoid exactly what happened to me and others on this blog. They prolong "milk" the cases for years then EXTORT money (legally of course because they got the judge to make the ruling) from us (me in my case) thousands. The worst was last time I'm in court Erin Cartwright being escorted out of the courthouse....she should be escorted to jail....

The only thing we can all do is VOTE!!!!! Ukena is up for retention and we need enough people to vote NO, but if that doesn't happen, he will be a judge until he retires. PLEASE, tell everyone you know who lives in Lake County to vote him out.

I tried to email Robert Craghead as someone suggested on this blog, but my efforts were unsuccessful. Ukena's colleagues know he's incompetent, yet he still making decisions on peoples lives, "no decision is a decision". His indecisiveness is do to a lack of character (doing the right thing) and simply not analyzing the facts. It could be he just doesn't care and only cares about covering his back. His lameness is so unnerving! He processes slowly. I could go on and on. He simply will not look at both sides of the equation and he usually gets the wrong answer. I looked at his contributors list and make sure you do not retain those attorneys for future legal needs.

Rachel...I agree with everything you have written, I do know for a fact the new chief Judge reads this post, so everyone needs to write the facts on Ukena. Susanne....my friend just retained Erin Cartwright as her attorney and I told her to read this post, what did you mean when you said she was escorted out of the courthouse? Maybe we could all come together to get the information out to voters, I'm willing to disclose my info to start a group. These are elected officials, we are not breaking any laws by telling the truth.

Alison...Erin Cartwright intentionally brought my case in front of Ukena after Judge O'Malley already made a final judgement.....NEED I SAY MORE??, She is the individual responsible for my divorce lasting SIXTEEN years....she manipulated Ukena and cost me my children's lives... She is my ex-husbands attorney who went to Ukena and had him rule I must pay EVERYTHING.....she went in front of Ukena the one time I could no longer afford to fly from Houston years after Ukena would not rule fir HER attorney fees to be awarded.....then Ukena ruled I HAD to pay my own attorney....1100 a month in fictious "back" child support AND now 14, 000 to HER!!!!.....This is WHERE THEY BROKE Illinois LAW....her & Ukena!!!!!!....She was being escorted out for HER.protection.......but SHE & UKENA are the CRIMINALS!!!!!.....She is a monster and I heard thru other attorneys "She should take her medication" whatever tgat means!!!! I have tried to work 50-60 hours a week to keep up the demands of Ukena's rulings...I had Spinal surgery....I literally broke my back working so hard to try to keep making money.....stay away these.people...they are evil....As I am writing this I am in pain everyday.....I am not lying....she represented my ex who she presented to the courts as a good guy....never telling these judges his background which is also against the law!!!....Tell your friend to stay away.....she may as well file for bankrupsy now and save herself many years of anguish....and she IS NOT MY attorney!!!!!! My grown children despise her for how she ruined our family.....all we wanted was a DIVORCE!!!!!!

The game is to keep filing motion after motion until your MONEY is ALL GONE....and in their bank [email protected] you are right Ukena told me I would never have to go back there...but lied.....it continued for years...Cartwright making motions ...him not telling her it's over....each time she keeps billing my ex husband.....then Ukena rules...I must PAY CARTWRIGHT ???? This is the man who left me with 5 kids, at my mothers!!!! And, never paid me for years....I have given this so much thought....there should be a law passed for divorce cases...like a two year limit or whatever...this situation in Lake County is a living nightmare...

Susanne...I had my friend read this post and she is really upset about everything you wrote about Erin Cartwright, she doesn't want an attorney like that. Are you saying she has mental problems, because my friend will drop her if that's what you have heard.

Lake County does have local court rules that state custody cases can not go longer than 18 months unless there is a legal reason and a motion needs to be signed by the judge stating that reason.

Ukena is an idiot and has no regard for the children and families he destroys. I don't know for sure why he's not in 103 anymore??? Could it be that he is spending his time on the "Illinois Child Support Advisory Committee". http://www.childsupportillinois.com/advisory/...
This should scare us all! He is now expanding his rain of terror to the rest of the state. I would like to think that his superiors figured out that he does far more harm than good. Does somebody know for sure why he's not in 103??? I see he's not backup family judge, what's that...busted down to traffic!!! hehe

>>> HELP Does anyone have experience with Judge Fix? <<<

ps - I am all for relieving that f**ker of his cushy $183,000/yr job. He's laughing all the way to the bank and it kills me. The election is in Nov. I am motivated, skilled, poor(thanks to you know who). Any serious interest??

The ARDC governs the attorney's and the Illinois Judicial Board governs the judges, both websites have complaint forms. Both agencies can disbar or suspend attorney's and judges because they are governed by the IL Supreme Court.

Alison, Thanx for the info....

Uchita forced me to pay my EX directly until the Illinois State Disbursement Unit created the account back in 2009. Today, I am paying thousands to prove up those payments and force the ISDU to fix it !

Thanks Alison. Alison to give you an example of Cartwright's character...& also Duck Hook yes I used to pay my ex also in personal checks...once Erin Cartwright held up one od my checks in the hallway outside C103 and said :"Couldn't thus check have been written to your son?" My son & ex have the same name....fyi none of those checks were ever considered as payments because when I tried to get the records from the closed checking account Bank of America didn't have the records...I also gave him 4, 000 in money orders in 2006 which were not recorded even though I brought my records of these money orders. Cartwright claimed I owed "back child support" knowing I gave them money...she had one check in hand...she knew...and still presented lies.....of course to Ukena....who granted Cartwrights motion...for me to pay more...actually at that time double the $24, 000....went to over $50, 000....in "back child support" of course each motion and subsequent court date she would set....charging my ex.... which now (Ukena ruled) I must pay to Cartwright....because she was "forced" to file these motions....this is where they broke Illinois law....
