Judge Zeidler
You are an awesome Judge and a vigilant overseerer of our children. Keep doing what you're doing. I see you interacting with children and I know your heart goes out to them, I also know you're concerned about families and reuniting children to a safer more sustainable home environment.
The parents that acted in a way to put their children in hazardous environments are the cause of them being in the system, not the Judge, He's just ensuring the safety of these children. Parents need to wake up, stop playing the blame game and follow court orders, not only follow but learn; they'll be much better parents if they do; I know.


Comment #: CA6777
On many occasions over the years I've had the opportunity to watch Judge Zeidler in action. Its been my observation that he genuinely cares for the children under his jurisdiction. He's kind and shows compassion not only to the children but to their families. Some say he's difficult and doesn't care about reuniting children with their families. What must be understood is that it's up to the parents to reunite. Through their actions of jeopardizing their children's safety they came to the system and now it's up to them to understand the detriment of their actions towards their children, rectify their ways and reunify. One must put the blame where it belongs and see that this is not a game for Judge Zeidler, that child safety is his priority. If I could tell him without criticisms, I would say Judge Zeidler, job well done, keep it up@

This judge is so biased towards fathers that it is detrimental to the children that he is supposed to be defending. He has a total disregard for what any attorneys or DCFS employees may have to say while in court. He also does what he wants and how he wants with a disregard to any case plans that were put together by DCFS.
