Judge Hafar doesn't listen to the attorneys or the people who can offer good information to help him make an informed decision. He tries to rush everyone through, keeps his eye on the clock and gives the impression that he does not want to miss lunch or work all day. He also doesn't know the statutes, and often gets them wrong, but attorneys are afraid to correct him.

I see things much differently now just in processing all the emotions, feelings and how did I get here. The Judges call may be impossible for me now, I actually think that it will help me more in the end and for that I am grateful. Shame on me!

I didn't think that I could be in a more abusive relationship that the one I have been married to, alas, I have been assigned to Judge Barry Hafar. He allowed perjured testimony, kicked out the majority of my husbands income where decades of proof exists. A judges decretion is only as good as the judges ability to exercise it. My children and I got screwed! Score one more for an Oklahoma sex & porn addict and kick all reason to the curb. Shame on you!

The dishonorable judge Barry f. Hafer rewards drug addicts, domestic violence convicts, adulterers and a perjurer with soul custody of an infant. This man should be removed from the bench. He also has a regular group of atourneys that he plays golf with and allows to practice law in his court room. Everyone should take the time and file a judicial complaint aginst this evil man.

I found Judge Hafar to be very concerned about issues regarding my son. Glad we drew him no matter the outcome he is for our youth and im glad for that. Good Judge so far!

Judge was completely biased in a divorce proceeding 07/15/2001. Jennings vs Jennings. Awarded everything to the husband who was a convicted felon.The paperwork the wife had was dismissed as hearsay. After 11 years of marriage where both parties worked and contributed salaries, he awarded the vehicles, house, property, and anything he wanted to remove between 1-7pm the following day to the husband. The wife was allowed to keep the vehicle she drove for work and her clothes. How is that just? It's not equitable or fair. It's completely biased.

horrible judge... doesnt care about the law and has stolen my children from against statute for going on two years. Have been in his court 200 times at least. He needs to be disbarred. He doesnt know what he's doing.

Judge Hafar does not want to know the truth as much as he wants to eat a sandwich. Justice, rights, fairness, and especially humanity are annoying, foreign concepts for this creature.
I will forever regret even thinking that my voice could be heard, or that a judge would care about anything at all but money. And a sandwich.
The way he handles the courtroom says everything about our Oklahoma government.
I give up.

(honorable stretches the boundaries of truth)Judge Barry Hafar seems like a very intelligent lawyer.However once you have been in his courtroom you soon learn that there is no concern for feelings,actions or motives of persons involved whatsoever. he is not even needed in his own court room as it is a simple financial transaction that favors the one with a vagina 99.99 percent of the time. If you want to see the personal paternity log i have kept since my son was kidnapped by his mother in July of 2008 and read all the hateful and disgusting things a scorned woman is capable of and still be given full custody of a child simply because she is a woman, write me at krynklown@gmail.com and i will open your eyes to just what a wonderful piece of work Judge Hafar really is........
