What others have said about Hon. H. Suzanne McGraw



Comment #: WV104
Having attended divorce proceedings in Judge McGraw's court for nearly five years,it became apparnt to both my former spouse and I that she was not in control of her own court. Rather, she allowed low class divorce attorneys to dictate, and elongate the proceedings to exact as much money as possible from the process. It ended terribly and only after both of us refused to seek further representation. Interestingly, both my spouse and I had already divided the assets before entering court. I am a retired military officer. Neither Judge McGraw nor the attorneys would adhere to the legal requirements set forth in the "former spouses protection act" set forth by Congress tthat dictate processes for military divorces or the agreement we both had signed before entering court. To overturn her decisions will require a federal court and an additional cost of $20,000. The cost of the divorce amounted to about $30,000 to us and my former spouse was sued by her attorneys after the proceedings. (You just couldn't make this up.)
