It's a shame they don't have 0 as an option. I encourage everyone to sit thru I day of judge Hansen's court room. In some cases he's more hurtful to the children than the parent. He's an enabler of domestic violence and will use his position to increase parental rights for father's. I'm 100% for equal parental rights don't get me wrong. But when I man has spent several years in jail for domestic violence, still has several restraining orders on him by several woman for domestic violence, when 3 mediators have favored the mother after speaking to the children. When threats, harassment and stalking have been documented to the courts. There comes a time to say enough is enough. The answer isn't to put the children through more hell with more evaluators, in an attempt to find one that favors his views in order to justify his predetermined decisions. He is no better than the documented abusive husbands/fathers these women are trying to protect themselves and the children from. I've observed this man belittle women in court. I've seen men dominate the floor with questions, stories and accusations while the women were told they are only allowed to answer yes or no and not allowed to speak outside of that. Judge Hansen is no better than the abusive men that come before him. He simply uses his position to abuse them more in an open forum only empowering the abuser. Someone needs to take a good look into his case files. A good look at the recommendations he's over looked by court mediators to only input his own views. Why put a child thru 3 mediators and an evaluator if your decision is complete opposite of the 4 recommendations in front of you're only goal is to continue abusing these women and children in a public forum until you find someone to agree with your biased decisions and justify them, then you're doing a great job. It's sad that a judge can't take the facts in front of him and put the best interest ahead of evening out the fathers rights movement. I agree some fathers deserve equal right and some are a better fit for parenting. This is not always the case. If you get this judge and are a victim of domestic violence with children be prepared to be beaten again by a man of power. His case files speak for themselves. I ask that you spend a day in his court room and watch the raping and abuse of DV women and children happen all over at the hands of this man.

Judge Hansen is The worst when it comes to custody & disputes, HE DOES NOT CARE WHAT THE MEDIATORS RECOMMENDATION WAS & OR IS, HE MAKES HIS OWN RULES IN THE COURT ROOM! DOES NOT FOLLOW PROCEDURE NOR GO BY THE BOOK. IF YOU'RE ON CALENDAR FOR A CERTAIN MATTER HE WILL PROCEED ON OTHER MATTERS NOT ON CALENDAR, WHEN YOU'RE NOT EVEN READY. HE IS VERY BIASED & EXTREMELY PREJUDICE WHEN IT COMES TO WOMEN, HE BELITTLES, TALKS DOWN TO & DEGRADES THEM IN COURT ROOM MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE 'MOM'. HE WILL LET THE MALE SPEAK, MEANWHILE FEMALE MAY NOT GET A WORD IN FOR HE DON'T CARE WHAT MOTHER HAS TO SAY, HE SHOULD BE THROWN OF BENCH & GO BACK TO CRIMINAL COURT FOR THAT'S NOT THE WAY TO TREAT WOMEN. WE NEED A COMPASSIONATE JUDGE IN DIVORCE COURT WHO'S NOT ONE SIDED! GET HIM OUT OF H3 BEFORE HE RUINS MORE LIVES & KIDS LIVES

Judge Hanson is fair, unbiased and seeks truth. Divorce is difficult but when young children are involved they seem to be his concern. Judge Hanson instructed the court room on the damage to children when parents refuse to co-operate and slander each other, etc. As one parent, thru her lawyer, lied about mediation requiring supervised visitation, the Judge spent his lunch time contacting the meditator. He is very true to the law. He has a tuff tuff job and he does it well, seeking truth and trying to direct people to do what is best for the children. I am a 65 year old Grandmother and would like to knock some selfish parents heads together.

As a man, I'm proud that Judge Hanson is around. He doesn't fall for all these women and their drama. He is a man's man.

Judge Hansen has no business presiding over a family law courtroom. He obviously has a clear distaste for women overall, and has no problem with a father abusing marijuana and/or alcohol, and has no interest in doing what's best for the kids involved in this case. It's pathetic. Not only is the family law of California screwed up, its judges simply do not care, nor take the time to review cases in their entirety. Judge Hansen also does not support the suggestions of the mediators that actually met with my children. Disgusting. He should be removed.

This judge is very biased towards women/mothers in general, and seems to not follow Supreme Court rulings. He believes that he is above the law. The sad part of it all is there is not much that the California courts can do to stop this man. If there were a zero rating, I would definitely rate him that!
