This Support Magistrate does not know what she is doing. One days she says one thing, next day another. Also, she shows her emotions, that I believe none of professional person has right to do. She can accuse you without checking facts, or even simply pay attention to what was in past. Very unprofessional, can not trace what was on last trial date. She can act based on her own feelings. She makes decision when respondent do not provide documents and when 2 lawyers made a deal not in benefit of petitioner. Somebody really needs to look at that judge.

This Magistrate or Judge is the worst in the business. She is so unfair and bias towards any father that steps into her courtroom. She is very unprofessional and doesn't even understand the laws. She only sides one way at that is with the mother. She does not allow for the father to even speak. She is completely one sided in favor of the mother. She needs to be removed from the court house and find another type of job.

This judge Lowered my child support from $90 to $60 after my daughter's father told her he made $8 an hour, showed no proof of income. When I became irate, I was escorted out of the courtroom. She is terrible.
