This guy was a complete disappointment. He took the statement from the other party as the absolute truth. I was not allowed to speak on the statements made against me or present my case at all. My custody case has been underway for 3 years making progress with visitation under commissioner comptons ruling. This ass shows up and changes the last judges ruling completely. There was no justice in that courtroom. Only his bias opinion. I feel sorry for you if you have to deal with this man and your attorney is not his friend.

I understand that the Judge Jose R, Benavides was a sole practitioner for 12 years here in Bakersfield , Now I see why he is one sided and Bias, It is unfair for a person of his background to be put up as a Judge his background of expertise is not one of a person to be able to see both sides , these is why he goes hard on the parent who was accused of the wrong doing. However what many people neglect to see is that if a woman for the first time ever put hands on her spose , Woman are held and are dealing with the harsher sentencing then the men because woman are suppose to be the more caring and loving naturally , Understand this if a woman did something to her spouse the question should always be "How long did the woman have to suffer abuse of any type before she actually did something back to defend her self?" It is never looked at on what brought it up to the point where the woman of such a case had finally did something to protect her self. Many woman are loosing their children and being sent to prison because they are the loving ones who don't want to loose their family and they deal in silence with all the wrong doings of the spouse . With a Judge such as Jose R , Benavides we the woman of this community are going to be suffering more and be made to jump thru hopes to get are children back . Judge Benavides needs to realize there are two sides to every story and he must learn to pay attention to all the facts not just stayed focus on what the she was in trouble for that is almost like being charge twice , " DOUBLE JEOPORDY" This is how he works .

A real Honest Judge fallows court procedures. It is the duty of a judge to have knowledge of what he is making orders on. As a Judge in the Family Law court room , It is said that everything should be based on the Best interest of the child . Not once have I ever heard him ask any of the parents on how the child is adjusting. Judge Benavides seems to be unfamiliar with how the systems pertaining to Family Law work. Also he does NOT keep his word. In custody cases the parent that actually is fighting for their child , Benavides gives false hopes to a parent. Benavides is causing my child psychological damage and emotional abuse his self .As a Judge you should already be knowing what all this does to a child going thru the roughness of these types of battles. I see it's like everything else it's not his child suffering so what does he care. You need to put your self around the different sides of both parties to really be familiar as to how Judgments should be made . What is put up there is not always the truth and so far I see no reason to call you Judge Benavides " Your Honor".

Judge Benivedis appears to be following state law and trying to do the right thing for women and children while be fair and balanced . This is a foreign concept in Bakersfied Family Court. There is a rumur that certain well know family law attorneys are trying to black ball him for not going along with their usual program . I highly recommend this Judge for court case. If you get putout with Shuett recuse him immediately he is a misogynist and abuses women and children by proxy. You have the right of recusal (refusing ) 1 judge at beginning of court case before it starts. If you are a woman do not step foot in Shuett s court. But Benevides at least try s to support women and children in a court system where , the attorneys pat each other's backs to pad their wallets , and fail to ask for protection or proper support for women and children. Beware of minors counsel here in town as both female counsels could care less about representing the child's interest and only cares about getting paid.

Great judge who is not manipulated into doing "favors" for local attorneys or their clients. Unfortunately, this is a small town where everyone knows everyone. He actually reads the documents filed, follows the law, best interests of the children, and he does not rely upon the bold-faced, false statements made by attorneys in open court or in chambers. He's doing a great job. Hope he never gets "bought out" for lack of a better term. Keep relying upon the facts, evidence, and law, and seeing through the BS.

There are a few good old boy family law attorneys who should probably be retired by now that are making up bad reviews on Judge Benevides because he is honest and fair and doesn't play their corrupt game. This Judge is a good Judge who sees through the b s and stays fair and balanced. He cares about women and children getting support and not being forced into abusice situations. He is definitely cleaning up a corrupt courthouse , stopping malicious litigation and parkour tricks by old men attorneys who are used to getting their way,that has been abusive towards women and children by proxy for too long.

In middle of a Court case so far seems to be walking a tight middle line and being fair and judicial , will see what happens as case resumes. Hoping this Judge knows and follows state law, reads evidence and compels the attorneys and parties to follow court orders ( men included)

The problem with family court is not this judge. It is the attorneys . Beware of the giant and the troll they will only represent their own wallet. They are in cahoots and abuse women and children by proxy. The worst is minors counsel . Sarah Vizzard she has only her own pro father agenda and takes payoffs under the table to feed children to abusers. What about being pro child Sarah? And representing your client?She in no way represents the children. She should be disbarred and sued for every child she has abused by proxy . She is a joke and corrupt abuser. The American bar association states 99 percent of " alienation" claims by men are only to cover up abuse and silence the mother. The American medical association says alienation does not even exist and is not recognized by reputable psychologists . Why would a minors counsel refuse to allow a child's counsellors and the child's own testimony to be hidden from a Judge. Hmmm money? Evil intent? Abuse of children? Interesting . Get corrupt attorneys out of family court to protect children.

Benavides what are you doing Bro are you trying to get taken out of office on your first year? The dude is Not Ready to take on the responsibility of a judge yo he avoids having to deal with a lot of his cases. Bro that affidavit you sign at the end if the month claiming you handle all the matters before you for the month , Bro your gonna end up loosing all your earnings for your first year because if I can sit here and see just how you handle your case to get them cleared out I know upon review your load is gonna be sticking out like a sore thumb. Commission on Judical performance guys that's all you have to write a complaint I heard tis man's comments to some of you. Just explain word for word how what he said and exactly the manner he said it. He will get fixed if not taken off that bench. Teach him the hard way to he should be tough enough to take it. Should you not make him suffer he will only keep making you suffer. he's got a law to respect and he is not doing a great job. My name is Bob and I approve this comment.

I have been witness to this judge in his court room. I am sorry to say, but he is not a fair judge. I believe he is against women of his own nationality due to some traumatic event suffered in his childhood at the hands of his mother. He makes it a point to deliberately draw attention to mistakes made by the mother to the fathers attention. However he does not hold the same standard when the father makes these mistakes. Benavides, does not research and educate himself on his cases prior to the hearing. I have watched a friend do everything he has asked her to do and then some and each time he manages to come up with yet another reason as to why she does not have custody of her son. He has silenced her at every attempt to state her case. I myself have been through these same issues as her and with much more severity at that and my son was never taken away from me. I do not see that he is just and fair. From where I stand as long as your not of his nationality you will prevail in his court. However I do not understand how or why he is allowed to show little or no disregard for a mother who HAS NOT BEEN PROVEN UNFIT to be able to interact with her child on a normal bases and to return custody of that child to her. what is our legal system coming to when the rules of a judge are allowed to be influenced by his lifespan events verses the laws that govern the people and their rights according to the Constitution of the United States? if he wanted to be an advocate for men of his nationality he should have kept his previous position before becoming a Judge. Judges are suppose to be fair and unbiased in their rulings and as far as I can tell this judge doesn't know the meaning of these words. nor does he know how to keep his personal life events from bleeding into his court rulings. Truly a sad and unjust happening for women of Hispanic culture.

I am 39 years old and I have a baby that was taken from me by his father, I had custody given to me by Judge Stephen Schutte . It was a judgement . So how is it ok for my son to be taken and hidden from me by a man who is not named as my son's father . He wasn't around during my pregnancy he left me in the street with nothing . He would call me over and if I did not make it by the time he said to be there he would lock me out . In the freezing cold at 2, 3 am pregnant , he didn't care what happen to me or what he put me thru . I messed up after I had my son I was depressed and had different feelings towards this guy so one day when" HE " got me drunk I guess I had enough of him and I beat him up so I ended up in jail my baby was at the baby sitters at the time of the incident .,Never has my baby been a victim or never has he witness abuse of any type he was only 4 months and he was taken and hidden from me . Judge Benavides has given this man full custody of my now 2 year old baby I don't get to have my precious son over night and I was forced to pay for visits .. My baby has had black eyes and bruises and othe problems and yet Benavides makes the order for my son to remain with this kid napper and keeps me out of my son's life . How is this even right ? The family mediatior says that the schedule is not in the best interest of my son and yet the Judge has no concern to change it . So tell me how do any of you who say Benavides is a good Judge when I have never been proven unfit nor have I ever hurt my baby or missed a visit . Benavides has never read my paper work and when he did he asked me why was I trying to point the finger at the other person ? He has also heard a case that I was never served on and he has excused the other party to this case for many things that are not to be excused . Benavides has no concern for the children nor is he applying the rules and statures right nor is he taking the Law as it should be taken nor does he obey the Law , I thought he was a great man sitting watching him the very first day but once he got to my case he totally changed his whole persona. Bias I believe so.. Your hurting my son and making him live with people who care nothing about him . putting him in clothes that don't sending him to spend nights at a time with different baby sitters when he is just a baby who needs to be loved and cared for by the one person who loves him and who has done every thing that was order to her and still he does nothing to help the child be put in the safe home and loving arms of the very woman that gave him birth . A healthy baby was born to me cause of my actions cause of how I loved my child before I ever laid eyes on him and yet he's so far away from me... Where is the real Justice and what's in the best interest of my baby boy ?

My first time in court fighting to get some custody back from my ex, i wasnt 2 mins in and his court officer snaps a picture and starts yelling at someone for using their phone...needless to say Jose R. Benavides started yelling and reminding eveyone in court the rules. Of course i got nervous aftet that. He had no intention after that even hearing my side instead stated i dont have enough significant change. Thats it...request denied... not an explanation of what he wanted to see happen...i would not like to see him again

This Judge has little man syndrome just like the Jerk he gave custodial custody over my daughters son. He was very clear that he was abusing her mentally and she hasn't done anything wrong...this judge is racist, unprofessional, and dishonest. Who takes a 15 month old away from his mother because her brother smoked marijuana, and the ex claimed that he was doing it around the baby....Never Happened!!!! But he took his word for it and now has the control over my daughter that he wanted before they had broke up. This judge gave an abuser custody! Wtf I wrong with this world
