I am a victim of this judge and her severe abuse and corruption. I was completely stripped of all my legal rights by this judge in this 324 Tarrant County Family Court system. This judge completely disallowed all of my evidence, allowing my spouse to commit severe levels of fraud, spousal abuse, and crimes violating our court order TRO non-stop. My spouse was completely exempt from our court order TRO. He committed crimes of mail fraud, identity theft, stalking, and non-stop harassment. All of my forensic CPA's evidence of fraud was not allowed in this courtroom. I was flat-out stripped of all of my legal rights in this courtroom. The corruption in this Family Court is severe. This judge is biased and corrupt. This judge often conducts hearings from her private chambers and makes her rulings from her private chambers, while disallowing facts and evidence. When there are hearings allowed in her courtroom, this judge clears out her courtroom so that there are no witnesses to her abuse. Her court reporter excludes her vile name-calling and threats. Unfortunately, this judge is not held accountable for her actions! Though the Judiciary Committee ignores complaints, please file your grievances with the Texas Judiciary Committee! It's important to have your voice heard! Do not give up! The corruption is severe and needs to stop!

So far my experiences with this judge are that she is extremely biased and has put me in the first circle of hell. Despite five different experts in child psychology and sexual abuse telling me that my son's sexualized behavior and drawings of a naked man with a penis are big red flags, Judge Poulos has already made her "judgement" before hearing a single fact or looking at the two binders of documentation in my case. She stated that "all mothers think their kids are being abused." WTF? I have lost all faith in the system. I am terrified that as I move forward in this case, it will not turn out be in the best interest of my son. The last eight months have been complete hell as I have watched in horror as my son has deteriorated at school, and is acting out sexual acts that there is no way he would know about. Why this judge thinks that I would dream all of this up without substantial evidence, I have no idea. My life was going great before this all happened! For the love of God, somebody please do something!

This judge has no accountability. This judge hears most of her important Wednesday contempt of court hearings from her private chambers. She makes rulings on these cases from her private chambers, disallowing court transcripts and preventing the accused from appealing her biased and unfair rulings. This is flat-out denial of the legal right of litigants to appeal cases.

What will it take for the authorities to stop this Tarrant County Family Judge and her complete and total disregard to Family Law and the legal rights of people that rely on her for help. Complaints do not help. She will only use complaints to do more harm.

This Judge does not uphold the law! She goes by her own set of laws. I beg all of you that have had to endure this Judge and her unfair rulings to contact the Judicial Committee immediately! Put a stop to being victimized by this Tarrant County Family Court Judge!! She literally destroys the lives of innocent people and their families!

Wish we could be moved to her court. Judge Munford, 322nd District Court only rules for the mother, no matter what.

I agree with all said here.. Although I believe in this case she was trying to prove she wasn't bias against women, since she simply handed over the child to a women that had lost custody due to abandonment 11 yrs before when the child was just a baby, without any interest in hearing the case. And I quote " I'm leaving here at 5 whether you are done with your witnesses or not" after starting the hearing an hour and a half late
She had decided this case like another poster said over drinks. Man lost the child HE had raised since a baby!! His child was used to gain a non bias standing with the voter!

Please, everyone who experiences Judge Polous and her biases against women and disrespect for law please file a complaint with the Texas Commission of Judicial Conduct. This judge must be brought to justice before she hurts more families.

It's amazing that this Woman is in control of the outcome of the lives of many Children in Tarrant County. She won't allow me to present evidence in her courtroom after I was subpoenaed to bring it!
I didn't really want to be in Her court, but I would have been in violation of the law had I not shown.

You would think the Judge would allow you to present evidence of wrong doing when you've been brought in AGAINST your will?
Not Judge Beth Poulos. She is not working in the best interest of the people of Tarrant County.
How She was "appointed" to this position is beyond me?

This is a kangaroo court if I have ever seen one and residents of Tarrant County should be seriously concerned that this judge is representative of this county. This judge is known to be biased against women. She should not be a judge. She cannot even compose herself as a respectable woman-- often shouting from the bench like an impatient 5 year old child. She sides with whatever attorney she is friends with (at the time). Beth Polous does not "hear" cases she decides them over drinks with her attorney friends. This judge has various complaints with the Texas Commission of Judicial Conduct. She should be removed from the bench as soon as possible. Judge Jerome Hennigan, as this is his court and he is the District Judge, is no better for supporting such a circus act. Both should be investigated.
