CHILD SUPPORT doesnt have anything to do with visitation. Just because some men pay and some dont it doesnt have one thing to do with seeing the child. That is the choice the men make either they want to be a dad or don't. So If you make them then yea you should pay. It takes a low-life to not want to be with his child so if you make that decision then you have problems.
There are those of us that have done everything right. I married a control freak. I stayed on the road for 8 out of 10 years, making good money to take care of my family while my whore of a wife spent our money, didn't pay bills on time, stole an inheritance, and screwed whoever she felt like, BUT me. Now I have to fight for rights to see my son more than 4 days a month. I did everything right and still got raped in my divorce! Wells is a moron who couldn't make a good decision, based on sound fact, if it hit her in the face. I don't care what her credentials are. She sucks as a judge.

Hopefully she will be smart enough not to even run. I heard that she has been reported to the Ky. Bar Ass. She has been in trouble for not getting her paper work finished in a timely manner. And this is who people elected to represent our children. She gave custody to a father that was a dope addict and the child died soon after. She should be the one that is in jail. EVERYONE BAN TOGETHER TO GET THIS WOMAN OUT OF OUR COURT SYSTEM AND OUT OF JOHNSON COUNTY!!!!!!
Amen! I plan to do my part to get her out of office. She has done some serious damage to lots of innicent children. She has no clue how to listen, well I could go on and on and on.

...She does no better in Lawrence County. She has shown favoritism towards my ex and her female atty since the very beginning of my divorce. I am STILL dealing with issues because of her. I don't care who runs against her in the next round of elections, but I will campaign for them just to get her off the bench. She sucks as judge.

I know of some children that have been in foster care for around 4- 4 1/2 years and she wont do tpr on the dead beats or any thing they get chance after chance and the children are suffering. Seems like the cases that need closure cant get it and the children that need returned home they keep in care.. whats up with that? Hon. Judge Wells, please read the reports from DCBS workers, besides they have daily or weekly contact with most these children and families there reports should state there findings(JUST READ THEM) and do your job!!!The reason I say this is because there should be no question of what needs done with some of these poor children, if you would just read what the DCBS workers have found in there investigations.Either send them home or adopt them out to a loving family, dont keep there future in termoil.
I do know that her neighbor at Southside went in front of her for temp custody of her God daughters,(without the mom knowing)and Janie let her and her husband have temp custody of the kids until September, and the lady said she would probably get full custody after that. The lady only keeps them because of the social security checks they get from their deceased father. She has called Janie on the phone and talked to her about the case before the court dates. She is also married to a family member of Michael Endicott, and he has talked to her over the phone and let her know what had went on inside the courtroom with these kids mother,(because she was charged with drugs). Scott Hazelette who is also her neighbor has called her before as well to let her know about court proceedings with the mother. THE JOHNSON COUNTY COURT SYSTEM IS SCREWED UP, AND NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED!

Judge Janie McKenzie Wells is a horrible judge. When she first came into office we went before after having Judge Preston who was awesome everytime we went infront of him he ruled in our favor, Judge Wells never enforced any orders of the court we took the residential parent to court over 10 times for violating the court orders of not sending school information and medical information. we had orders from judge Frazier, Judge Preston and Judge Wells and yet the residential parent would not follow them and all Judge Wells would do was tell the residential parent over and over to fallow the rules, It has taken years and time even attorney's telling her she is not following the correct kentucky laws and she still makes the wrong decisions. She has gotten a little better over the years but she still is very uneducated on how the system works, she does take forever, and when she makes ruleings she does not include all the needed information. She has a chip on her shoulder that really needs to be knocked off. Its her job to serve the people. She definatley needs voted out, Judge Preston really needs to take over the Family Court again he knows how to judge people not their gender, or vote.

kids are not safe with the way Judge Wells gives them back to druggie mothers. going to parenting classes is a big joke and drug testings is useless. the Mother fails a drug test they set up another appointment. she can stay straight for a few days and passes it and boom the kids are back and she is high again. Get rid of Judge Wells is what I say.

Well, in my opinion, she is NOT the right type of person to set on a bench, especially in the Family Court System. She was the judge in my case, which lasted over a year, YES I had my demons, that's why I was there. I do not deny it, but I DID follow all her orders and recommendations, and then some! She still took my kids' and gave them to their father, whom didn't have a home to take them to, couldn't feed them, clothe them, he COULD NOT do any of these things it takes, to properly take care of a child. What's worse, he allowed our kids' to be separated by sending them to live with two different family members of his. That has been over 4 years ago. Why do the courts allow such behaviour? I done wrong, but I was given a second chance to make it right, and with love and support of my family, I did just that! Now I'am fighting to get my kids' back into MY home. It really pisses me off when people brand other people with these "pill head" remarks and insults, especially when you do it infront of the children. In all the years our kids' were in MY care, he never even asked to see them, his family paid his child support, to a certain extent, he never bought any school clothes, took them to the doctor, set with up them when they were sick, hell he never even changed their diapers! Another thing, she didn't even investigate him, or where he was planning on taking our children to live.
I believe everyone should have a second chance, if they are serious about it. I was VERY serious, and I done all and everything I was told and then some....so why do MY kids' have to keep suffering from this? I have been to judge after judge, lawyer after lawyer, and for what? I only got a door slammed in my face! But, the good thing is, I AM A FIGHTER, I WILL HAVE HER ORDERS OVERTURNED! She thinks she has the upperhand, well she doesn't and she definitely is NOT the only person in Eastern Kentucky with some "PULL"! If I still lived in Paintsville, I would rally right along with you all, to have her a** thrown from the bench!People like her are destroying OUR judicial system!

Janie McKenzie-Wells what is your deal?My husband Michael Lawson has been in your courtroom multiple times,fighting for rights,fighting for custody,fighting for visitation,filing motions to get this all in order.And still nothing is done to the mother Dorthy Jude for not following court orders.Everytime we show up for court she is never held in contempt and should be.We have it documented of all the times we've been in your court room from your clerks.This has been going on ever since 2007,My husband stepped up to the plate he pays child support,has ins,on Madison.And he deserves a chance to be her father.Since 2007 I can count on both hands if that that weve gotten to see Madison,it's now 2012,something needs to be done,we have done our part why dont you start doing yours.I diagree wth alot of your choices.You have given her to many chances and shes never followed your order.Your court room seems to be one sided,and you need to step down and let someone else do your job,thats going to be fair wth the people that deserve to have there children in there life,cause you change the rules as you go along!!!!!Iv'e never been in a courtroom as unfair as yours.Maybe they need to investigate you and find out why your not doing your job as a judge!sincerly, Jodi Lawson

I was wanting to know why no one ran against this no good for nothing judge? I have been dealing with this woman in her courtroom for years now. And she has never done right for my daughter. I'm going to be filing a complaint against her and will have her investigated. I suggest that everyone that has been wronged by this woman do the same. I was so disappointed when no one ran against her. If someone would have stepped up and ran against her they would have won for sure. We cannot have her for another term. So please everyone stand up for what is right and get her out. I cannot believe that she was brave enough to run again after so many people have stated how bad they hate her. She needs her ego checked.

People, if you don't like this woman as a judge, then why did you vote her in? Her dad may be a fine man, but this devil woman is and has been a demon for years! I worked for the beast when she was an attorney at Boehl, Stopher, and Graves and she was a menace then. She was heartless, egotistical, arrogant, inconsiderate, miserly, buffoon. The very thought of the years I worked for this she/him brings to mind dark shadows of misery. At the time, she was not married and all she had was a boxer dog. She made us like her dog. I hated that fucking dog. Everyday, I hoped it would drop dead just so she could feel some sort of emotional pain. She loved to degrade her subordinates and relished in debauchery. So, to hear that this demon is a judge is a sore on the eye of KY.

I will most certainly do my part to get her out, I would love for everyone to see the evidence I have in a case, involving my grandkids, there is even a confession by the 12 yo. girl of sexual abuse.. she sent her right back to the same house where the abuse took place, social services in law. co. are no better.

No, that is far from true. She actually can be counted on to do the exact WRONG thing. I have no idea how it works out this way, but I've seen it numerous times. If anybody runs against her, I plan to campaign as hard as I can for her opponent. This woman is not qualified to be in any public office, but especially the Family court. She doesn't really study her cases at all. She leaves it to the attorneys to work out an agreement. She does NOT listen. A good judge is able to listen to both sides.
