It was very sad to see that many years ago.....a then soon to be ex husband had friends hire for him....an attorney (sometimesa pro tem). She was training Judge Judith Craddick to Sit on the Bench in Famiy court. AND Judge Craddick was hearing his divorce case. Judge Craddick said that it was illegal for the mother to home school. The ex and her had been doing this for two years. Suddenly he was against it. Judge Craddick had NO interest in the constitutional Rights of the family. In fact she said that it was not legal to home school. She said that either the kids be put in Private school...or in a federally funded Public School. OR The mother would lose custody.
In so many divorces now in 2017...judges don' t care about the rights of the woman....even those that have been totally hosed over by ex husbands. They want to get it over in 15 minutes and not be bothered to see below the surface.
Judges need to be willing to look at the facts.......and see a history or timeline of what has occurred. This judge should have paid more attention to detail. Hopefully over the years she was able to learn and improve on those skills and have empathy and compassion for those who are helpless or beaten down by abuse.
