Bitter custody case involving domestic violence on children and 2,600 mile move away. Minor's counsel was appointed and disregarded all evidence of previous DV and neglect by mother against children. Minor's Counsel recommended youngest daughter to mother(2,600 miles away) and oldest son to me, both kids with me until after school year. Judge agreed. Post ruling, mother again committed DV, validated by psychologist, CPS would not act because mother and children in two different states. I motioned for temp cust, supervised visitation and removal of minor's counsel. Minor's counsel removed but has long lasting effect on the court. Judge spoke with kids and the kids said no to splitting and son told the judge about DV. Judge re-diagnosed son with general depression, didn't believe domestic violence ever occured, refused expert testimony at this hearing or any future hearing saying no one can come in here to change his mind, accused me of parental alienation, and sent both children on visitation with abusive mother again with youngest daughter in perm custody of mother! My attorney says to enroll in counseling to admit I was wrong to get on judge's good side - I disagree!Mother is suspected Boderline Personality Disorder. I am a high ranking military officer. I just hired this lawyer about two weeks ago so he is still new to the case. Minor's counsel was recommended by ex's lawyer and appointed by the judge. I represented myself and successfully removed minor's counsel for cause under numerous failure to perform duties and ethics violations (emails and court transcripts as evidence). Now it appears the judge has a vendetta against me. I'm just asking for a second opinion.
