<quoted text> yes, I've been to the news channels, the local DAs office, DCS, and even contacted a few of our towns politicians..They haven't done a thing regarding what has happened in my son's case..I'm simply amazed a father can beat his child, not once but three times, there be all kinds of proof it happened, and a mother just can't seem to present that evidence in the 15th judicial district..I've since learned it's tied up with the local child support office..nobody won't dare think a "father" would deliberately hurt his own child like this cause the momma just must be bitter and out for revenge..this has been the scenario for quite some time here..domestic violence by proxy does exist..it's where a parent beats their child, then blames the other parent to make them appear crazy..all in an attempt to change a custody decision..I've just got out of the 15th judicial court system..the next system I go to, I hope listens to everything this system has done..if not, there will be a huge lawsuit for child abuse coming..don't think this doesn't happen in our fine town of Lebanon..

I have had judgeGwin in my case and he has show a lot of favoritism to the other side he asked the other lawyer about her kids before we started. The cops were called to my ex house and the cops called child protective service, who then placed kids with me had an emergency hearing where cop said he would never let the kids go back if it were up to him, needless to say they did.A year goes by and my ex put another restraining order on me the day i am to leave out of state with kids to remarry, stopping me form leaving state and for my soon to be husband to be around kids this was an exparty order with no court date and the restraining order was permanent from my understanding not legal. our next court date we went and asked for the my ex lawyer to be removed from case cause she had done illegal things she was told she should remove her self and that he had 75 day to get a lawyer. He wink at my ex lawyer looked at me and said you win mama. Mean while the restraining order still stands. I feel he shows much favoritism.

I think you are al full of it! I have not appeared in court in front of Judge Byrd, and I suppose the reason for that is because I am acting according to the law. Have any of you seen any of the guidelines under which you "judge" the judge? I met Judge Byrd at a church event. As a matter of fact, it was Bible Camp!!!! She was an active participant, and this was genuine, not campaigning, as she was alrady the established Judge! The children loved her, and she sat down at the table with my girls and I and could not have been a more genuine individual! She gets the flack, because she rules for the "right" thing. Her job is to indiviualize each case by a standard set by a higher court! Just because some may disagree, does not mean she is "wrong"; it simply means you did not like the verdict, you could not afford an attorney and you are "pisssed" because your ex/current spouse had the ability, or you are guilty about not being able to "personally" deal with her judgement! Quit blaming the Judges and look in the mirror!
As far as Judge Hamilton, you could not be any more LEFT FIELD! Judge Hamilton handled my custody case of my minor child last year. My child's father was in arrears of over $10,000. He had not seen the child in over two years and he filed for this petition of visitation and child support establishment!!! Although I expected for my child's father to have less visitation, as he lives out of state, I do not feel the need to bash Judge Hamilton! He listened, and acted individually and according to the laws of this county! I have upheld my current order and my child's Father is now another almost $4,000 in the arrear for this "current" order. I now have to take him back to court on my dime, but I do not blame the Judge, I take personal responsibility for the past decisions I have made and with whom I have made them with! I am a Mother of two, a member of the military, and I am also a full time student! I have done the best I can do as a parent and like said prior, I have taken responsibility and continue to complete goals in life and quit relying on "dead-beat Dads/Moms" to "do their ordered job!" The Judge cannot predict the future!
Bottomline, take responsibility, quit pointing the finger, and LEAVE THE JUDGES ALONE!!!!! You never know when the day may come in which you al straighten up and the Judge decides to rule in your favor! BTW, I believe it was comment four, "witch" is the absolute wrong spelling, as "which" would sound a tad bit more educated, and maybe start helping you in court! If you sound and look smart, sometimes it may help your case! Case in point!
Last name "T"for all you nosey people!
Not a doubt in my mind that you are working inside the courts!!!! Let them take your kids away and hand them oer to the dead beat parent AND THEN you will undestand where we all are comng from!!!!

She only wins because she's unopposed. That coming from a clerk in her court room.

Amy, you are right..you are going to have to follow certain steps and get out of this town to be heard..here's my strongest advice..stop hiring attorneys and represent yourself pro se..it stops the good old boy system in their tracks because they can't underhandedly work out deals and pass money underneath the table..second, file a judicial complaint to the administrative office of the courts..keep in mind, you are going to have to send more than one complaint..when a judge receives a complaint, it is their duty to recuse themselves from your case due to bias..my judge decided not to do so even after two complaints and currently he is still in hot water over it..if it means you have to file something yourself and present the abuse then so be it..but please ask the judge to recuse herself due to rule 11 of the Tennessee supreme court..she will ask you if you want her to sign anything at this recusal hearing, but don't do it!! That will give her a reason to stay on your case..keep fighting and don't give up..but do stop pumping money into their system..it's what they want to happen..the Tennessee supreme court has a website where you can download the judicial complaint form..but don't stop there..write to politicians, your local sheriff, everyone who has the right to stop the abuse but fails to do so..remember child abuse has a long statue of limitations..the child can file the day before they turn 18..so there's still hope in trapping these sociopaths the judicial system seems to love to enable to keep money flowing into their system..also, let the local district attorney know what's happened to your child..you will be viewed as a crazy ex wife..don't let this stop you from presenting the evidence you have..although you don't have your daughter right now, that doesn't mean tables cannot be turned..hope this helps..

I DEFINETLY appreciate any information I can use!! Thank you so much!! My ex and my daughter sat in court and said I was an abusive mother with NO evidence. Which there is none!! What blew my mind is the judge just believed it! She wouldn't allow me to show my evidence! Now that I've been lied on in court and have a restraining order on me due to these lies, I'm the type I just don't sit down and take being lied on!! I believe in right is right and wrong is wrong!!!
Thank you again!!!

she must be doing something right as she is constantly unopposed. there is usually a winner and therefore a loser in court cases. Judge Hamilton is also a fair judge.

It's a much more effective use of time to pray for someone rather than talk about them.

Dr loose, why don't you go and shut the f$$$ up??? You obviously have never fallen victim to corruption in our courts..How can someone be a loser when they were never even heard by a judge in our system? Yeah that makes perfect sense..so shut your mouth, because you have no idea..she's unopposed because the good ole boy system supports her tactics for being corrupt and making the system money..thats it nothing more, nothing less..
