My last comment was removed which imho should not be allowed and is a violation of constitutional rights of "free speech".
Someone please disrobe this judge! What is going on in Philip V Cortese's Montgomery County Family Court is criminal!
This is peoples lives this judge is so non chalantly playing with like he is God! When a family is put in grave danger because of a judges actions and belief the family should stay together despite the fathers criminal actions almost killing that family on several occasions is just wrong on so many levels.Where does one turn to? I am tapped out of borrowing money for legal fees; I was denied counsel despite being below poverty level;the thousands I had to borrow for no reason other than harassment from ex and his family taking me to family court(a 4 year neverending ordeal) seemed better thrown out the window...I got the same results pro se with this judge.He even bullied my lawyer... Saying in his words the father of our child; a criminal suffering from mental illness who almost killed him " it doesn't matter; no supervision needed; he can do what he wants"and he does... Until one of us is dead! Maybe then someone will listen
