Always the same is it possible?

Eminent Member Registered

Hello everyone, 

I have been to court plenty of time (due to my unpredictable ex and her behaviours) but lately during our last 3 Court hearing we always have the same Judge.

(I have to admit that this judge is clearly supporting the mother and seems to "enjoy" to have me on the other side 🙁 )

I am fed up about this Judge and her behaviours....

Is there a special rule that assign a Judge to a "family"?

Can I ask someway to have a different Judge for my case?

Did it happened to you too?

Thank you in advance dads...let me know...I am very curious!

Just found this online:

"The judge will usually have all the papers the day before so will know all about the case before it comes into court. Such cases can take a long time to resolve and it is important that those involved see the same judge throughout the case if possible so that there is a consistent approach to dealing with the problems that are being addressed." short..."I am fu**** forever!" 🤣 🤣 🤣 


Anyway...I would like to have a different and objective Judge judging my case and deciding on my son's future life! is there any way to ask for a change?

I think they use same judge's for consistency as their more familiar with your case. They also prefer to work with the same Cafcass officer that dealt with your case in the past. I know someone who recently made an application to return to court. Judge that dealt with his case replied and rejected his application.
