    How can I get this judges ruling and actions in court investigated?

    Subject: Can we penalize a judge and if so , how?
    I am not a lawyer so I hope I am in the right place to ask a question.

    My friend just had all parental rights taken away.
    There is no findings of abuse or neglect and her CPS case had been
    closed and rendered unfounded.
    However it took her 3 years (almost) to jump through the hoops and to
    complete everything that CPS asked of her. (Man, if I could just
    relate to you the whole story, you would want to pull your hair out at
    the injustices this woman endured).
    She is not an educated person and like the average American had no
    idea what any of her rights were or might be. She is/was ignorant of
    our basic civil rights and the steps of due process.

    At the beginning of this whole ungodly mess, she voluntarily gave
    custody to the paternal grandparents.Cps had threatened to 'take her
    kids away so that she never sees them again' at the beginning of
    this.. In fear of foster care, she signed them over.

    Now that the process of evaluating the fitness of this woman as a
    mother is over, case closed, she went before the judge to have her
    parental rights restored. ( all this with out an attorney).

    The judge denied her petition and has awarded custody to the
    grandparents. No explanation, no reason, no cause was given to her by
    the judge. Boom,kids no more even though she was Not found guilty of abuse or neglect .

    We live in Texas.Does that imply anything as to how difficult it may
    be to be treated fairly under the law in the courts ? Well the good
    ol' boy system is alive and well here !

    How can we go about appealing the courts judgement? How can an
    unfair judgement in a custody case be appealed? How do you go
    about repremanding an unfair, biased judge that has no regard or
    respect for the law?

    Please, this case has so many horrific details too numerous to
    describe in this forum.This was unfair and absolutely wrong from the
    get go. Where might I research or possibly find out a way to get that
    judge to answer for what he did and did not do
    concerning this case?


    How does a person go about having a judge at least looked at by his
    or her peers, when that judge is corrupt, and banking on the ignorance
    of his victims to keep the injustices silent? Where does one start?
    Please, if anyone could just point me in the right direction you will
    be performing a miracle.Help us at least get that judge and his
    actions reviewed. Administrative hearing? Texas Bar Assoc. ?

    Thank you for reading this long message. I have tried to be as
    eloquent as I could but this whole mess has me angry. I believe in our
    constitution and our civil rights and liberties and due process. And
    to see it so blatantly abused infuriates me.

    She was appointed a court attorney however there was some sort of conflict of interest.... However you look at it, this woman was not represented nor treated fairly ..



    I have not adequately in detail described her whole ordeal unfortunately space does not permit it.

    Suffice it to say, she received less than equal and fair treatment because of her lack of education and economic status. This should not have any bearing on treatment in the court room. I am willing to do what ever i can to help her get some redress and hopefully an equal playing field next time round. This judge needs to be reprimanded .

    You must appeal the judgment in your lawsuit first.

    We file an appeal on the custody order. I was not quite sure we could do that but in retrospect that option makes sense.
    Thank- you. Thank- you very much for your direction. Many appreciations!!!!

    Please, can any one else provide clues on how to call this judge to task after appeal has been ruled on?

    Sorry, I have no legal advice to give you. But I just wanted to let you know that I feel your friends anger, frustration and every other thought and feeling she has. I, too, am dealing with the Texas CPS. And if you saw what was written down about my family, it'd make you sick to your stomach. And when I asked them if the situation was as bad as it looks on paper, then why didn't they take my children from me? They're answer..they trust us!!! These people have a way of making you feel like the scum of the earth, like nothing!! Now we're in a positon where they tell us something needs to get done about me step son (which is what this is mostly about), but we have no where for him to go. Now my fiance is going to move out and take his son with him because we have no other options, and neither do they, but they want to tell my fiance he's a coward if he moves out!!! But they don't know what to do either. I am so frustrated with these people...but I just wanted to let you know there are others out there going through the same BS!!! Tell your friend she is not alone.

    ask for an administrative hearing about 'the only option is father(?) and son' move. I wish I could help you.IF you would like to p.m. i may be able to direct you to some possible resources that might be able to help.

    May I ask has there been a judgement or a court order given in this case ? IS your involvement a coerced consent? or has there been a judgement found concerning this case by a juvenile/family law court judge? Court Orders? If not, I may be able to direct in someways that could help. Either way, Good Luck,
