You hit it right on the head. He does NOT care kids and destroys lives. Back in 2010 my ex did a emergency order of protection and every week I tried to get her back, his lawyer came back with something. So on the day it expired, I told my lawyer I was going to press perjury and so the through they threw it and the judge would not let her go back to me till she got a GLA. I lost my job and I was ordered to pay him child support in January 2012 to October 2012. He denied me a trial so I was stripped of my full custody rights after 8-yrs. Nothing has changed I was just back in court and I showed the judge that he wrote additional stuff that was not on the original motion and that is a felony charge and the judge did NOTHING!!!!!

I have been in his courtroom for 3 years. All my money has been squandered away by him & now I am being forced to sell living assets. I have not been granted as much as 1 evidentiary hearing as he makes multi million dollar decisions. I am terrified of going public while my case is still pending. Are you making any headway in your efforts?
The Executive Director of the IL State Bar Sssociation is Robert E Craghead. I'm urging everyone to reach out to him and file a complaint against Ukena. Here's his email address rcraghead@isba.org

I feel he is extremely prejudicial, does not follow law, and does not give fair and unbiased decisions. Has anyone contacted any attorney to see if anything can be done?

I've been in his courtroom for two years trying to collect on unpaid support and can't get a hearing date set. He's just canceled another hearing date. It's almost as if he's afraid to make a decision. He seems to be in way over his head. The only people who win in his courtroom are the attorneys. Their billable hours are amazing.

In an effort to hide an affair with the Godfather of our child my ex filed a false Order of Protection. I never even called thus woman a bitch. I have had a clean record for 31 years and everything I worked for is gone. Judge Ukena wouldn't even let me present evidence to defend myself. When I did show the judge an order my ex asked for and then wouldn't follow it, I was told I'm proving I'm the problem. Judge Ukena needs to go in 2014. I want to know who is opponent is so I can volunteer for him / her. If Lindsay J Roalfs is your GAL your even in worse jam. She lied in her report about my daughters development. Lindsay told the court my child is potty trained and reads. Ava doesn't do either. Children are our most precious gift and people who use children need to read how Jesus feels about people like this. Jesus talks about a rock, rope, and a deep lake. I agree.

I'm in. Besides my ex, this judge ruined my daughter's life and mine. I want to volunteer for whoever runs against him. Another source of help is Jac@avoiceformen dot com.

If everyone files a complaint with the Illinois Judicial Board, we can show a pattern and get him thrown off the bench, don't even bother with Lake County to do anything.

Make sure Ukena is removed. This judge does not have a clue. I have several female friends who have lost everything because of this judge.

This judge ruins families. How he was a priest who knows?

The injustices did not start with Judge Ukena.....they started for me with Waller. ....I had a resolution with Judge O'Malley which was fair, then Erin Cartwright when she couldn't get the results she needed.....she went to Ukena and that's when the NIGHTMARE continued for another 4 years ....rulings favoring her....and dragging the case.....imposing more than 60, 000 dollars now.....I injured my cervical spinal cord working 50-60 hour workweeks as s nurse trying to keep up with the financial demands imposed by rulings in this court......I am now willing to fight this even if it means I die trying. THIS HAS TO STOP.......

This judge does not try to keep a parenting bond with children. That should be the main focus in family court. I had an incident happen to me in 2010. My son was 11 at the time. He is now 15 and I'm still going through court to try and have weekend overnight visitation parenting rights. It is still set at 9am-1pm EVERY Saturday and Sunday. My ex keeps making excuse after excuse on how I am "unfit". My son was appointed a GAL over a year ago and has been on my side. We went to court on Wed 03/12/14, mother did NOT appear but her attorney claimed my house was a mess and I have no bedroom for my son. My sons GAL did a home inspection, as requested by this incompetent judge Ukena. The GAL inspected my home on Monday and we went back to court today. The GAL once again recommended overnight weekend visitation as the inspection went 100% fine! He has his own bedroom, house is clean, etc. And once again his mother failed to appear in court but her attorney is now stating the mother is worried about my mental health! So I was ordered to bring a note from my psych dr (which totally violates HIPPA laws) to state my conditions have no effect whatsoever on my ability to care for children. My God he is 15 years old!!!! Seriously????
And here's the kicker......from another relationship I have a 10&11 year old daughters that spend almost EVERY weekend and days off school with me! And they have done so since they were ages 7&8. Their mother and I get along perfect and we work together to do what's best for our girls!!! The GAL even interviewed the mother of my young daughters and she clearly stated she has no concerns or worries whatsoever when they are with me. She knows I would NEVER put my children in harms way, etc. Sorry to ramble but seriously!!!!!!!! I've cared for two young daughters the past 4 years and I'm not exaggerating when I say I have them every weekend and all days off school! They love me and want to spend every moment possible with me and their mother lets them because she is one of the GREAT MOTHERS out there that puts her kids first. Now tell me.......how is this possible to not have my 15 year old son spend the night and how can this pathetic Judge Ukena live with himself for destroying families!!!! He is doing the exact OPPOSITE of what family court is there for! I'm out almost $30,000 just trying to get more visitation and father son bonding time! Courts like to diss the absent deadbeat dads but when Judge Ukena has a loving relentless father trying to build a relationship with his son he screws us up over and over and over again!!!!! This judge HAS TO BE REMOVED AND DISBARRED. Perhaps even have criminal charges brought against him!!!!!
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! At this rate it will cost me another $45,000 until he turns 18 and we can both say screw this unfair judge. He needs to be disbarred!

I have just learned that Judge Jay Ukena has been reassigned and will NO LONGER be a judge in family court effective sometime in April. He is being reassigned to the felony DUI division as a judge. I'm not sure if this has been "publicly announced" yet or not?
But for whatever reason prompted the reassignment it is GREAT news and has been LONG overdue! I wish him luck in his future appointment and just glad he is out of the family court division!!!
