lol thanks, but what does that mean? I mean yes I have a lawyer and all of the evidence is on our side. I should clarify that we are trying to get custody of my step son. I just know that there are some lawyers out there that absolutely WILL NOT take a child away from their mother. I know nothing about Judge Fostel and how he works.

It will depend on how busy everything is that day. Make sure you donít talk out of tern. He runs his courtroom very strongly. If there is good reason for the child to be away from his mother Just Fostel will not get hung up on the fact that itís his real mom. This is only my opinion of course. I saw him put a real father in jail for failing to submit to a psych evaluation. It was a custody battle between two biological parents. Judge Fostel does not put up with hateful remarks at all. Make sure to show respect even to the boyís mother. Good luck I hope it goes well for your family.

Thank you so much for your input. I have heard that he is very strict as well. This is just a very stressful thing to go through especially when you know nothing about the judge.

It hasn't yet, we go Monday. I'm so nervous! We have an attorney, but she has a great attorney! I've heard horror stories about Judge Fostel. And I've also been told that we are in trouble because of her attorney. I just can't imagine them leaving my step son in the environment that he is in. Drugs, Domestic Violence..... if we don't get him, I'm not sure that any dad has a chance. I'm just putting it all in gods hands and hopefully it will all work out.

Judge fostel does not care about right or wrong.He just wants too be the boss.He is going to be charged for doing ice (speed) very soon so don't think that because the child is in a drug house you will win.The people doing the dope may be friends of his.He is dirty and at least one of the others in his court is dirty from the job he had before this in archer county.His name is tim cole.He was taking money that the popo were getting in raids in the tri county area.The police in archer city would raid a house and take the money and guns and they never show up on the paper work.Him and Edd were both voted out of office and moved two counties away and started again.The judge knows all this and did nothing.THINK HE MIGHT BE DIRTY???????
