Maybe all the "biased toward female" comments messed with his sense of justice, for I am a mother who lost primary custody of her children. I was not served the proper papers, and the court-appointed lawyer told me she could not represent me as she was assigned only for the contempt-of-court case that had brought us there. Also, my children were denied an ad litem attorney because Munford said it was insulting to him, like he wasn't smart enough to pass judgment. I felt like I'd been raped by him, my ex, and my ex's lawyer.

Unfortunately this judge does not know what just and fair is. He has limited knowledge of the law and uses his knowledge to inflict as much harm as possible on those who enter his courtroom.

From the posts, it looks like Judge Munford is easily influenced and does not listen to all the facts. He is satisfied with less than the best conditions for children.

Please, everyone who experiences Judge Munford and his biases against men and disrespect for law and any due process.

Actually stated before hearing that he would not make any changes to the current order, but he did, his temporary orders were made without the party even asking or filing for. Just to plunger the father.
Please file a complaint with the Texas Commission of Judicial Conduct. This judge must be brought to justice before she hurts more families.

I further urge you to contact the Office of the Attorney General and your local represenatives.

This man has no self control. He exudes arrogance which is in effect ignorance camouflaged as ego. I am a single mother who was intent upon making my children the best they could possibly be. After my ex-husband had moved on to his third marriage and moved to Florida, he then wanted full custody of my sons. After being unemployed for a year and being behind in child support to the tune of 7,000+$ Judge Munford gave him full custody of my sons. How is that just?

Amazing to see a ruling AGAINST a mother in Munford's court. He has consistently ruled in favor of mother's disproportionately.

This is a kangaroo court. I was not allowed to talk and my right to due process was violated. In my case, Being the mother, I lost custody and my rights were stomped on without regard to the best interest of the child or my fundamental right to due process as a parent. Honorable, maybe in the eye's of Satan.

When will Judges look at families as a whole and the importance of regular, meaningful contact with both parents? The laws are slanted and unjustly limit one parent's ability to be present in a child/chlidren's life.
The honor and responsibility of being a parent does not stop becuae of a divorce, and should not be taken away from one parent, usually the father. At least in 322nd court.

Judge Munford is not interested in "child's rights" especially when giving the child the opportunity to see both parents equally. He only rules in the mother's favor no mater what the circumstance.

I agree with the comments on Judge Munford.
There is no acceptable reason for withholding kids from good fathers.
Why does Judge Munford devalue the importance of a father in a child's life?
No justice in this courtroom for fathers.
Judge Munford will one day be accountable for the repeated disregard for fathers.

Demonstrates bias to females no matter what. Father's do not have a chance in his courtroom to have a fair hearing.

Like many courts in Texas this is Munford is gender bias to the female without any regard for the father. He states that he raised a daughter, not sure if he was divored or not, but I wich he would just imagin not seeing his baby girls face everyday, or to be limited to 33% of the time. Father's do ot even have a chance in his courtroom. No fair shake for men.
