If this judge is assigned to you file immediately for another judge. You only have 21 days. She doesn't read back up documents, makes snap judgmentments and actually doesn't seem to understand the law. She doesn't force full disclosures, does not understand domestic violence and rules in favor of the mother or father but never the child. She is worthless.
21 days to change your judge from the time you file for your initial court date....run! She is dangerous to have on the bench. She has no concept of domestic violence, no interest in the needs of the child and for the first time ever I unfortunately have experienced a judge that denies kids with special neeeds treatment. She doesn't read documentation. Never in my life could I imagine that a judge could be so haphazard and harmful. Not only does she go against the needs of the child but she actively denies children access to services if the other parent is against them. I'm talking basic services like speech therapy even though speech fossilizes at a certain age; she will ensure lack of treatment. Run from this judge especially if your child has special needs or if there was ever domestic violence. Judge Byrd was a corporate lawyer before becoming a judge in 2010. Her term is up 2019. She doesn't know family law. She has no concept of child development. My case wasn't against the father. My case was for my child so h could get services.
Run in general. She won't look at your paperwork. She is dangerous to have on the bench.
