I HAVE AN IMPARTIAL JUDGE WHO HAS BEEN BIAS, UNFAIR AND THERE HAS BEEN A HUGE CONFLICT OF INTEREST. IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET A CHANGE OF VENUE FOR A DIFFERENT FAMILY LAW JUDGE IN ORDER TO FINALLY HAVE THE FAMILY AND CIVIL LAW CODES FOLLOWED INSTEAD OF COMPLETELY IGNORED?
It seems that you feel the Judge is "partial" not impartial. It's possible but unlikely to challenge the judge; but you won't get a change of venue for bias as in a criminal trial with a tainted jury pool. No one will presume that a Judge is ignoring the law.
NO. (EVERY JUDGE ANGERS SOME.)
Sorry. It does not work that way.
All of Ms. Straus’ responses to questions posted on Avvo are intended as helpful information based upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as a full or complete legal opinion. It may not be what you wished to hear, and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 30 years. Ms. Straus regrets to report that you cannot get contact information about her in any way, shape or form, as Avvo wont let you. Good luck.
Besides Aavo, you can also use Findlaw as a resource for acquiring knowledge of the Family Code and Code of Civil Procedure.
In order to request assignment to a new judge, you must have actual specific facts demonstrating that there is a conflict of interest or bias. I do not recommend offending or provoking a judge by making these accusations unless you have concrete facts to back it up. Even then, judges are required to recuse from a matter in which there are conflicts, so rest assure that if there were any such conflicts, the judge would have already recused himself/herself. Most matters in family court are highly contentious leaving one or both parties afflicted even when a judge is ruling in accordance with the law.
