Judge Bedle heard my child support modification hearing today. He was sold only on the opposing party's insistence that the Washington State child support calculation be the determining factor. Even though the law allows me to petition for a deviation, he would hear nothing of it. When I would reference the law that I was relying on to support my argument, he would insist that he knew the law and would essentially shut me up. He effectively prevented me from siting my case. He failed to act with justice and take into consideration the effects that increased child support payments would have on my ability to care for my kids. He assumed the same presumption as the opposing party: that the kids only benefit from the custodial parent receiving the fullest extent of shared income, even to the detriment of the other party. This man should be disbarred.

IF he would have bothered to read the previous commissoners orders, done his job and read the file! Then he may not have sent a suicidal child back to the home to be put back on medication which is detrimental to her health! I have never incountered such ignorance, lack of knowledge and proposerous behavior in my life!

I knew I was in trouble when the attorneys in the hallway were very uncomplimentary to him. The only thing they said complimentary about him was that his wife was hot. Great because they also said she works for the court. When I was crying and complaining about him in the clerks office cashier area it was probably his wife!

What is it about Snohomish County? He's the second best commissioner, but in King County, he wouldn't be hired to shine Comm. Velategui's shoes. Is he from Darrington?

Arden J. Bedlee is prejudice in his decisions and in turn ruining many lives of people and children. A man like him should not be allowed to make such decisions. He needs to be disbarred from this position. He is rude and makes personal remarks that are degrading and unnecessary.

The Hon. Arden J. Bedle made inapporpriate comments when passing judgement, called parties names and did not bother to read fully the statements prepared for him. His conduct is reprehensible and is a mar on the reputation of the courts.
