What others have said about Hon. Christopher D. Rafano



Comment #: NJ2111
Judge Rafano slammed me in Family Court. He is a disgrace to the bar. It's Ironic, one of my female friends had the same issue and her attorney was from Hogan & Longo as well. My ex-husband lied in every order to show cause, and my daughter told the Guardian ad Litem the truth. Rafano, with his lack of knowledge of family law forbid me to see my child. He discriminates against me. I've been left with no choice but to file civil suits against all parties involved.


Comment #: NJ2016
This new judge shows signs of bias,and doesn't seem to want to work well with people who represent themselves. I can't even get an oral hearing with him, plus I don't think he looks over the important facts of my case. He even went and changed the $30,000 imputed income that the divorce judge ordered against my ex wife and lowered it to $18,000 all based a fraudulent tax return, my God she didn't even report my $13,000 in alimony. And the biggest joke is the C I S my ex spends $39,000 a year this in her own hand writing, so how does this happen. I will never give up, even if it means going to the appellant court. The truth of my ex's crimes will come out.
