Court is already stressful as it is. The focus is on you and your spouse and you feel as if every move you make is being judged. When it comes to divorce cases, you might feel as if there is a lot of back-and-forth action when it comes to what you and your spouse have to say. These matters can only be further aggravated when you feel as if you have a biased judge in your case. This is a judge who is only listening to the other party’s side and tends to ignore or write off your concerns in court. Custody is an important matter to you because you want what’s best for your children, which you can only achieve if you believe you are being heard.
How to Move Forward
If you believe that the judge in your custody matter is biased toward the other spouse, one of the best courses of action you can take is showing evidence to back up everything that is said. Perhaps this bias stems from the fact that your ex-spouse is trying to use things you have said or done in the past against you and the judge is taking them at face value. If you can show evidence that you spend time with your children, that they are always in your care, that your family is well-supported on an emotional and financial level, and many other aspects, you can prove to the judge in your case that you are a provider for your child and deserve time with them.
If you believe that the judge is biased and cannot be moved, it might be time to speak with your attorney as it pertains to your options moving forward. Sometimes, if the bias is ruining many aspects of your case and you can show that they are being downright unfair with you, you might be given a new judge to take over your case. You can file a motion to do so with the help of your attorney.
Your custody case matters, which is why it is imporant to be absolutely sure about these matters and speak up if there is a biased judge who you do not think is listening to you.
