No there is no justice in family Court! My advice-- get away from court as fast as you can and leave this mess behind. You will NOT be "made whole."
I have NO financial relationship to Mark Baer--link below--but he tells is like it is about this mess.
Family Code section 271. Family law fees are difficult to get, or they can be, as the court has wide discretion in awarding them and generally the Court's rulings do not get appealed given the lack of funds to do so by the parties.
