Family Law in WV - Joke

I know it's not a good situation but this man had obviously not paid his child support for some time. No matter what the situation your child still has to eat and be clothed. Many people would love the opportunity to go back to school but they work several jobs and have very little time to themselves to provide for their children. I would probably feel a little different if the man is making regular payments on his pay schedule. All I can say is kudos to Chip! I wish more family lawmasters would do this. I have an absent parent who owes quite a bit and has a capias AGAIN. Nothing has been done to pick him up. WV needs to take a stand against deadbeats.

Lori Mitchell is a good Christian woman. She would never behave in the manner stated in that article.

I personally know Lori Mitchell and she wouldn't act that way. The entire staff in the Family Law Court is professional. Mr. Reeder and his client are lying.

I would say so. Sounds like a cover up for failure to make it to a court hearing. Also, sounds like the clients father is a little ticked he lost his money.

This guy had worked in a law office supervised by an attorney (who is now running for Circuit Judge) and neither of them were aware you could file for a modification of a child support order? That is a scary level of incompetence out of someone who wants to be a judge

I've seen Lori act this way. She needs a broom to drive to work. Watson is negligent and allows her to verbally abuse people. He should fire her and then resign and take his pooch with him. That would be the best thing for everyone.
How many jobs have you been fired from, Mark?

Lori has always been nice to me.

Perhaps she doesn't like to be treated rather rudely.

Perhaps Mark tried to walk into the judge's chambers because he said he saw a sign that said enter through side gate...

He verbally abuses people, too. That's what they all do in that crazy court. Yell and scream at people and act like lunatics.

Right on! Abuse of power and they've gotten away with it for many years. Hopefully won't have to deal with it much longer.
