1156. party to case (with attorney)

I just stumbled across this site and read the comments above. My sentiment is exactly the same. I tried to explain my case and he simply cut me off. I'm facing jail time now because no one is wanting to listen to my case. This judge is not fair at all. He should be replaced!


6426. witness

I witnessed this judge refuse to increase a man's child support because the mother wanted to keep qualifying for CHIP. The DA swore the man in, asked what he did and how much he earned. He was a truck driver who earned 3000.00 per month. The DA requested to have child support modified to his current earnings which would increase the current support of 190.00 per month. The judge asked the mom if she wanted to increase it, she said no because she would no longer qualify for CHIP, so the judge told the DA he was not going to increase it and then told the dad to pay her 190.00 and told her to give it back to him so he could pay the next month. Are you kidding me???? This is clear fraud and he is condoning and supporting this. Mind you, the man had not given a single payment since 2014...2 Years! Then my husband is called. He has not been able to make a payment since Jan 2016 because he did not have employment. He is a truck driver. In Dec 2015, he almost crashed his semi into a car with a family of 5 in Memphis, TN. His knee gave out on him. Luckily, he was able to safely maneuver the semi out of the way and stopped on the side of the road with no injuries to anyone. We went to the doctor when he returned and found that he had a cyst on the back of the knee and a bone spur under his knee cap. The doctor ordered therapy and he was not allowed to return to work on the semi. Now, my husband begins a work search and applies everywhere but cannot get a job because everyone requires a GED. He requested a modification, reported the situation to OAG, and requested assistance from the TWC to get a job and obtain a GED. He passed 75% of the GED tests with one to go, got a part-time job in June and then left that job when he was offered a full-time job later that month. He gave 100% of his earnings to his child support and when he went to court, the judge gave him 120 days for contempt in jail. The following week, he went for another case and this judge gave him 160 days, refused to modify his case, increased the medical and back pay, stating he now needs to pay before he is released. What???? So he did everything he was supposed to do, followed the instruction of the OAG, and this judge tells him that regardless of what the doctor says, he needs to get on the semi and be a truck driver because reducing his child support to meet the local job earnings was not going to happen. Are you kidding me? This judge is telling him to break the law and consciously operate a semi where he can put innocent people's lives in danger? This is reckless and a complete miscarriage of justice. The reason this man is behind is because, like the rest of us, has not been able to make enough money to pay the 1700.00 per month this judge is requiring . But yet, the other truck driver making 3000.00 per month only pays 190.00 per month??? Wow. We will not allow misuse of power, parental alienation, and false imprisonment to continue at the hands of this judge. We will organize and be a catalyst for change. This man is a disgrace and disappointment to all parents who work hard everyday to raise their children. Mr. Rosas, a deadbeat is a parent who does not WANT to care for his children emotionally or financially. This is not who this man is. Must be nice to sit in judgement of others without having to consider the evidence and specific details of a case while there is no one around to hold you accountable...trust me, that's about to change. -Disgusted

This judge is rude. Cold hearted. Aragent. He is not professional either. He should no longer preside over this court. He is very agnry for the fact he pays child support and alimony. He is not biasis at all.he should think before locking people up he says he does it for the kisa but he does it to show he can. He does not listen to medical evidence or history. He feels there are no disablities either. The judge is old and should be replaced. I have been in his court on more then one occasion and it is the same thing. He interupts when parties are speaking and he starts yelling

If you want to know why our country is going to hell, look at how we are parenting how how this judge supports parental alienation. Current statistics show that 50% of marriages end in divorce and the current child support system does nothing but tear families apart. I am so tired of hearing women diss their baby daddy and talk about how tough it is to be a single parent. News Flash, you are not a single parent if you have now or ever introduced another man/woman into your children's life and he/she helped/s you raise them. I raised my two eldest without any child support, my youngest's dad paid for one year when my son was 14 (after I was laid off and needed help), while I paid medical and financial support for my other son who was raised by his dad. I have been on both sides of the fence as a custodial and non-custodial parent. I consider the ability to raise my children a privilege. I made all the decisions...where to live, their curfew, what school they attended, how they dressed, who they hung out with, what they learned, what doctor they saw, but most importantly, I influenced who they became...Non-custodial parents do not get to see their children everyday, they are not entitled to Child Tax or Earned Income Credits despite the fact that most pay more than 50% of their earnings, they are forced into ridiculous debt by a legal system that does not look at the family's finances as a whole, they are denied modifications during times of need even when evidence supports one, indigent parents are sent to jail without proper legal representation, and to top it off some custodial parents use the system created to support children to alienate the other parent and label them a deadbeat. Let me be clear, a deadbeat is a parent who does not WANT to be a part of his/her child's life and REFUSES to provide ANY form of support (emotional, financial, medical). Both parents are an important part of a child's life. Parents need to put their differences aside and work together to provide their children a loving and safe environment with beautiful childhood memories. Keep in mind that children learn through the examples we set. If we teach them to have TOXIC relationships, that is exactly what they will have in their lives and continue to pass along from generation to generation. A child should know how much he/she is loved regardless of the amount of $$$ the other parent pays. Break the chain of hate and abuse. Resolve your differences in order to build happier and healthier families. Divorce is a real part of life but it doesn't mean our children have to pay the price for the mistakes BOTH parents made. At the end of the day, it takes two people to fall in love, two people to bring a child into this world, and two people to divorce...do the right thing for the sake of our children and their future. Stop teaching hate and instead teach love, communication, teamwork, and trust. We don't have to be a nation of broken homes if we focus on unifying and supporting our blended families.

Prefer negative stars...Comment number one must have been Judge Rosas himself because HE is the only one that thinks he is a good judge.. he is sooo not fair, and very rude. He might have gone through years of school, but failed the "how to treat people fair" class..

This Judge needs to be replaced. There are fathers out there paying child support the best they can, and this judge just wants to lock then up ..So they can loose their job and get more in arrears . He is not fair . Does not act on a professional level , he is rude and unjustifing. He wants to punish you without hearing your side. I feel others will agree with me , we need to get this Judge replaced. He sentenced my boyfriend the maximum days just because he had a private attorney...This was not fair . I will appeal this so called ruling of his. And get someone that's fair and professional..Some one that doest hide behind his chambers , an actual judge that shows his face. Overall his rating for me is a Negative !!!!!!!!!

I have been to this court many times too many times. The first time I went to court with my child's father he treated me like a nobody because he had been married since we had had our daughter. He and his wife played a role in front of the judge like if I had come in between them. Anyways I know he is not their to hear my story of how I was in the picture first etc........ but he did treat me like crap. My daughter is now 18 and he has not given much support financially or emotionally. He is a deadbeat dad. He has been very lucky because the judge always gives him a chance to try to pay. Really 18 years and he is still getting chances! He is rude and cruel with some fathers but what I have seen is he is a softie with all the bad ones. The ones that see their kids and try to pay get locked up. I just ask does he know it should be the other way around? Pissed off parent of new college student that needs an education and a car. But after 18 years what can I expect right!


7646. witness

I seen how this judge treats the men in the court. There have been times the father is working and still gets send to jail just because the judge don't agree with the father. Complaints for this judge or any judge in texas only can be made to http://www.scjc.texas.gov/

Awesome man!!! He took the time to hear my case and gave me a second chance not like thise dead beat fathers that are posting on this site.


7556. witness

I have been to court and it seems like this court is a circus. You have the secretary talking and laughing with the attorneys. This judge sees the parties with attorneys in his chamber. He does not follow the law, this judge ruled by his emotions. A judge is supposed to be patient, dignified, and courteous, this man is far from that. He doesn't listen to the parties speaking. I heard him tell a couple that wanted to cancel their child support because they were living together now, go ahead an continue paying you will get it back anyways.

Los Jueces Simplemente Son Unos Aplicadores de la Ley No tienen el Minimo valor de aplicar un sentido justo para los dos casos... Mi pregunta es ? Como se mide la responsabilidad de quien tiene posesion de los hijos ? Solamente el que paga tiene que Poner un Alto a tener hijos. Pero quien los Tiene puede parir y parir.. El dinero deberia de ser ahorrado hasta que el menor pueda hacer uso de su dinero. Mientras tanto si La madre no puede mantenerlo. Que deMonios hace con la Custodia.? Aaaaa y encima de eso no usan la ayuda para los hijos lo usan disque para luz agua y trasporte .... Jajaja que que que entonces cual es la responsabilidad de quien tiene la custodia ? Tenerlos y llevarlos al Daycare y tenerlos desnutridos o Gordos o dejarlos andar con cholos no pos wau..jajajaj.. Conozco padres que Tienen Dos Trabajos para poder pagar y al Final les acen auditoria para quitarles dinero de Los dos Trabajos. Cuando en realidad el segundo trabajo deberia de ser un Extra.. Personalmete e mirado a Rosas y bueno escuchando.


4878. party to case (with attorney)

I was reading all the reviews of Child Support evaders or their significant others upset because they appeared and did not have the money to pay and we're thus placed in jail. They appear and have 30 days to pay, and if they don't then get placed in jail. I asked that my ex be given a chance to "BEGIN" to pay after he hadn't for over two years and the judge Gave him 6 months to show he could. The evaders are given many warnings before court and then another in court. They all get up in front and come up with one reason or another. If you can't afford the ones you have already, don't go have more and then expect to use them as an excuse. And there's plenty of disabled individuals who work. Real excuses are few and far between. I love this Judge. He's always been very fair to me and my ex husband.

I practiced in Judge Rosas court for 8 years, and he was always fair, knowledgeable, and impartial. He is an Honorable man and a great Judge.

How does this judge allow a person out of jail for 500.00 dollars when they said 10,000 dollars to be released. This is so stupid this idiot got out with 500.00 dollars my daughter is 18 almost 19 and never receives money from her dad. Finally they arrest him and they let him go. What the hell is going on with all these dead beat dads and Judge allowing them to get out so easy.

Thats when the devoted mother in me opened her eyes and filed for CS...He had not seenmy child in months.. He was out of town weekend get away w herduring fathers day.. And didnt bother to call child to wish him happy bday... And now i have to share custody.. SMH.. But only good thing he has to pay by force!.. Andmore than i hoped for.. Yay.. TYG... That man was earning as much as me..and he said he couldnt afford to give his child anything... Thats the only thing im grateful from judge decision.

Judge Rosas's maybe the judge in this temporary life but one day he will have to give an account for his life to the ultimate Judge at the end of his life. Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand. Micah 2:1 Praying this judge repents and turns from his sins.

This is 2nd weekend that he is supposed to pick up child... He contacted me last week and complained that his only child.. Had given him and his family... Bronchitis from visiting him on first weekend visit... And that weekend on tenth... That he wasnt picking child up.. Mind u.. His pick up date is not until 17th.. He was already planning not to pick up child.... I had takenchild to doctor the week he went w father... I send med with him i notified him child was sick... Well when he blamed my child i went straight to clinic got proof he didnt have bronchitis.. And took pic and sent it to him... He didnt even aplogize.i found out that last weekende he went out of town w his gf.... Now today he text say he was going to have bronchitis for rest of month and wont see my child till dec visit... He is getting married on nov 25.. And obviously doesnt want his childaround this weekend .. And he got paid today.. I still wish judge had let me explain why my child doesnt need father in life.. But the child support is important because hey he earns...good money if he can afford out of town trips every weekend and paying for his wedding .. Then he can afford to give his child what he is entitled.
