Judge Agbanyani has taken twice as long to decide my simple case as needed. Almost 2 months to sign a couple of pre approved QDRO's. I am now without a car, which has prevented me from doing my line of work, I've lost customers, I've been evicted and written him a couple of times requesting he please sign them. I had to do another QDRO in 3 weeks without an order from the court (a must have according to lawyers) in order to do this QDRO but still, no QDRO. I am disappointed to say the least. I realize my issues are not his fault but if he had done his job in a timely manner (the pension fund says it's taken too long, lawyers agree) but him not doing his job within a fair timeline is the problem. I can not rate a job that is not done. In my opinion he was not understanding or compassionate. He asked for something then made it impossible for me to get a lawyer to do it, so I did it within the three weeks & he couldn't even sign two QDROs in over 8 weeks.
I have no idea how he writes, I've seen NOTHING from him.
The contempt I was met with at my 1st hearing was a shocker. I have never been in such disbelief at court procedure.
I was The Petitioner. The Respondent filed a petition against me a month after I filed against her. The case was due to an illness. I became ill during the hearing and had to leave. I was never served by The Respondent. Respondent was served. A bogus proof of service was submitted by The Respondent, case was heard during my absence. Respondent receives orders against me.
Clerk tells me I can't appeal, orders are final. Even though I was The Petitioner and it was my hearing, Because I showed up, I was considered served. I was the moving party, That is why I was there. I was never a Respondent.
No matter how much documentation I provided, or, The Respondent' total lack of any documentation, I was going to lose. This judgment was decided before I filed against The Respondent.
I could not get any temp orders, was refused appointment of counsel due to my physical incapacitation.
I have never seen this in a court room, ever. The judgment was based on rumors and gossip.
