What others have said about Hon. Kelly L. Hansen



Comment #: CA5601
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.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4579
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.


Comment #: CA4507
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.


Comment #: CA4413
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!
