For all of the woman who lost their kids, or for the ones who are searching the internet about this judge because they have a case open and their case doesn't 'feel right', contact the Office for Woman and the child advocacy groups about this judge. You have to speak up! Attorneys are afraid of this judge. There is no help unless you speak up.

She has No business being a Judge, A judge doesn't judge people base on false allegations, she makes a decisions without give the other parent a chance to defend themselves. I lost custody of my 3 year old son. YOU SHOULD CARE MORE ABOUT OUR KIDS. SHAME ON YOU !

This judge should be forced to step down. Children's welfare are at risk if she remains in the courtroom. I've had sole custody of my son for 8yrs and I've submitted physical proof of how my son is mistreated when he visits his dad and she granted him more time. I don't know what her deal us. My son doesn't want to be over there like that and she's making him.

She did it again!!!!!!!!! Whoever wrote this last post file a formal complaint!!!! immediately!!!!!! She makes up her own facts, covers forensics, overturns drug tests in favor of the abuser AND is in bed with the YWCA holding reports from Law Guardians!

By far the MOST unfair Judge EVER who has a history of unfair trials who makes decisions on false allegations and doesn't give you the opportunity to defend yourself. you would think that a judge would know the games people play. what you should do is who ever makes up false allegations and is caught they should be a punishment. instead she only hears 1 side believes it and make a decisions. Good job Hon. Michele Schauers. you really have whats in best interest for a child. EVERYONE knows you need good reasons to take a child away from his mother.

I recently lost a custody battle with my ex who was verbally and physically abusive yet this judge gave him sole legal custody of my 7 year old daughter. I am planning to file a complaint and I was wondering if you would be willing to do the same. Let's have our voices heard!

This judge will take control of your case and 'test' the litigants. She does not follow through with what is ordered on forensics, and uses her own methods to test (manipulate) litigants. She has no ability to think out of the box- she's moody, gets 'into it' head to head with abusers and the child comes out on the losing end. She is uneven in her decisions, and all over the place from one court date to the next. She should be removed before her actions get a child killed, and court appearances are best described as an abusers playground.

Judge Schauer is extremely biased and prejudiced. Her actions show an inability to handle family matters, and she should not be deciding the lives of New York's most vulnerable inhabitants.
