Rating:Not Rated
I am a pro-se litigant dealing with a family court matter before Judge Patrick D Robben.

Based on my experience, Judge Robben is very slow to issue a ruling. It has been common to receive an order on the last day, by law, that one must be submitted.

In my case, I submitted 20+ pages of evidence regarding my issue. Judge Robben disregarded the evidence and instead rule on the hearsay testimony of the other party. Judge Robben's order included personal remarks about me that were negative, defamatory and were not issues brought up in hearing by the other party. When I filed a motion for reconsideration, Judge Robben denied the motion and refused to look at additional evidence I gathered... at that point the other party had lied in court regarding material facts, which could be easily proven. So now Judge Robben's ruling is based on lies, and since he refuses to consider the evidence I have no recourse.

Judge Robben also seems to overly rely on the use of Guardian ad Litems, and rubber stamp whatever recommendations are made, even if those recommendations violate state law or Best Interest factors. In my case, Judge Robben asked the GAL to perform duties beyond what a GAL is mandated to perform (mediate between parties, give psychological opinions, facilitate parenting time). When I objected, I was placed into supervised parenting time without any justifiable reason.

Judge Robben also seems biased against victims of domestic violence, and takes the stance that an abuse victim is "hostile" or "not cooperative" or "engaging in conflict". His rulings have posed a risk to my safety, and have promoted parental alienation.
