HIRED LAWYER. WIFES BROTHER WORKS AS JUDGES BALIFF. OTHER WIFES BROTHER IS JUDGE IN SAME COURTHOUSE.
FIRST JUDGE GRANTS ALL WIFES REQUEST. RECUSES SELF THEN RETIRES. OTHER KUDGE DENIES RECONSIDERATION TELLS ME TO APPEAL IT
There is something here that certainly "must be a duck" as to some pretty bad conduct. It would seem that the best course of action is to retain an attorney to immediately review the file and file the appeal.
You need to retain a lawyer to review the pleadings and hearing transcripts and determine if there's an appellate issue.

Other than a grand conspiracy theory - nothing here is of consequence as just because the wife got what she wanted doesn't mean YOU were inherently reasonable nor entitled to otherwise, lawyer or not. Also "hiring a lawyer" could mean anything from hired for a free consult, to paid the lawyer $500.00 and expected $50,000.00 worth of legal work to the lawyer was paid $50,000.00 did $500.00 worth of work, , to you hired the lawyer for 30 seconds and then fired him and went pro-se for 99% of the case. If you expect to address anyof this in some manner you will have to find a means to get more money and retain new lawyer to review the issues and go from there.
