No common sense. She buys emotionally, she does not stop to understand the reasoning of what causes grandparents to get upset when their grandchildren are being abused. In our case, my son-in-law car sales manager for the local KIA dealership -Steven Robert Krohn - sold her the color she wanted but she never made the effort to "look under the hood or check out the details of the high priced financing" that was sold to her. She "bought a lemon" and our grandchildren and my wife and I will have to pay for her lack of common sense ! This was not justice. This was an emotional woman who decided her case on emotion - not the facts and the reason for the hearing before her - AND CERTAINLY NOT IN ANY INTEREST OF THE GRANDCHILDREN WE WERE FIGHTING TO HELP !

There are no grandparent rights for visitation in Colorado even though they say there are. If the parent is considered "fit" you will lose but if your strategy is to expose "unfitness" you will also lose. Obviously if you are going to lose either way, you would not go to court in the first place. But, this is the way this woman runs her courtroom. Court is by Lawyers, for Lawyers.

I agree with the previous comment. She's dangerously negligent and seems to be intent on righting what she perceives as past wrongs.
My ex-husband is has been convicted of Domestic Violence, has spent time in jail for stalking me, has twice been commited in mental institutions and has admitted to emotionally and verbally abusing our son.

He's been found in Contempt of Court MANY MANY times - and doesn't pay Child Support AT ALL unless its garnished from his wages.

Now that my son is 14 and doesn't require daycare, my ex-husband is trying to get custody so that he doesn't have to pay Child Support.

Deborah Grohs is encouraging this to happen - She overturned a previous Court Order stating that my ex-husband is not capable of making decisions in the best interest of our son. Her reasoning.....I'm just a "rock star" when it comes to my commitment and she feels that my ex-husband is getting walked over in that regard.

My son has some special needs and also DOES NOT want to spend time with his Dad. After hearing testimony from my sons therapist - that it's not in the best interest to have 50/50 parenting time - Deborah Grohs listened to this sociopath (me ex-husband) cry saying that he wants to be involved with our sons life and then ORDERED me to attend counceling with my ex-husband.

He had himself committed for wanting to KILL ME!!!!! He was committed for telling our son (3 years old) that he was going to kill himself. He's never dated, never moved on and she's ordering me to go to counceling with him??????

As long as there are attorneys who are willing to lie for money - Deborah Grohs will be there to let them get away with it.

Maybe after this psycho kills me, someone will finally look into Deborah Grohs. She's an idiot.

Just my opinion, but this Judge has spent her first two years on the bench trying to make up for what she believes are past injustice while she was a defense attorney. She has shown to continuously let violent ans sexual offenders off, has ignored District Attorney, Probation Officers and treatment providers when sentencing offenders. Colorado Springs is not safe with this Judge on the bench. She recently blamed the victim of a sexual assault for causing her own assualt. DO NOT RETAIN this judge. If you don't believe me, hang out in her court room, Div 18 any day and you'll see what I mean.

This is a new judge who has no idea what it's about. She can't even read a statute and follow the law. Hopefully she will learn in time.
