Pamela Svoboda can't seem to put 2 and 2 together when it's presented to her on a platter. She doesn't pay attention to details, ignores facts and makes decisions based on one partys word without investigating whether that person is telling the truth in any way. Thanks to her a child has been left in a neglectful situation even though legitimate concerns were brought to her attention they were laughed off by the other party, their lawyer and then this judge. I hope she's out of family court soon.

Judge Svoboda is new to family court. She does not understand family court procedure, nor does it seem like she has taken the time to learn. Her rulings contradict each other and she can't keep the litigants straight in her orders. Orders are incomplete and she has let multiple motions go unaddressed. Our Parenting Coordinator has submitted multiple reports that Judge Svoboda has never signed or reviewed and she has missed many deadlines.

During our hearing Judge Svoboda was not even clear on what the issues were that were being heard and had zero control of the courtroom. Judge Svoboda is doing a disservice to AZ families and children.
