What others have said about Hon. Jim D. James



Comment #: OH255
Family Court Judges need to be educated on domestic violence and how it continues to affect women after a divorce when the abuser continues to attack by using the judicial system. By not having this education, the woman, and her children continue to suffer more abuse, poverty, and have a destitute and miserable life. The abuser very often lies in court, on the paperwork and to his attorney. It is time the judges start believing the women and doing what they have been elected to do. Protect the families. Protect the children. Do that by protecting the mother and ensuring that the ex or former partner does not continue to abuse by using the family court to do so. The main source of abuse is intimidation and economic/finance. Kiplinger Magazine did an excellent article a couple of years ago titled' Dirty Little Money Secret" about how men continue to abuse after a divorce by utilizing the family court system and destroying the already fragile network of financial freedom the woman has been able to achieve. It is imperative that the judges AND lawyers are educated on this subject as your decisions affect us women and our children during our lifetime.
