    Need some legal advice.. Possible firearms related

    Long story short: going through a long painfull divorce. Absolutely devastated at what the judge ruled. The judge made numerous abuses of discretion.. Some of the highlights:
    • Threw out agreements that were already made AFTER trial, denying me the right to argue.
    • Ordered me to pay my ex $44,000/yr for the rest of my life.. Even though she has a job and $250,000 banked.
    • Said I acted in bad faith be removing firearms from my home (my ex threatened to file a false police report so I removed them at the advice of the police)
    • Disregarded my budget needs as required by law
    • After disregarding my financial needs, THREW ME IN JAIL, for not paying the total of what I clearly cannot afford even though I was paying my ex's mortgage, taxes, insurance and utilities of almost $5,000 month.
    $5000/month.

    Needless to say, this is under appeal.. But all the egregious and illegal errors are making me wonder "Why?" My attorney has never seen a judge do this kind of abuse in his 20 years of practicing family law.

    I'm wondering if the judge has knowledge of me having a CCW permit? It makes me wonder if I'm being targeted for being a firearms owner/CCW permit holder.

    Anyone have any advice on who could possibly look into this?

    You have an attorney, so speak to your attorney...

    If you make enough that the judge awarded your ex 44 large every year you certainly can afford a better attorney.


    Good luck to you, sir.

    Also, i wouls "sell' all of your guns to a trusted friend or family member and get a bill of sale so they cannot be used as property value later. They cant take what you dont own.

    The only person that can answer those questions is The Judge...and my guess is he ain't talkin'.

    Just remember the old adage we pretty much live by, here, on the forum: Legal advice received on the internet is worth no more than what you pay for it.

    Yep. A gun forum is not the place for legal advice of the type you need.

    # 1 - a better lawyer...
    # 2 - an appeal
    # 3 - an attorney with the ...... to file a misconduct complaint against the Judge.

    I can't tell you the laws in your state, but if kids aren't involved and no child support, alimony will never exceed 2 yrs. They figure they should be able to get trained and obtain a job in that period to support themselves. Also, if they get remarried ...... alimony is over and void from that point on. A Judge here ordered it for life, and not only did they reverse it...... but the Judge got admonished for being so stupid.

    So, get some cards made with her phone number and pass them out to all single guys, and sign her up for all the "dating services" you can. (just kidding ... )

    We had a female Judge here who would tell you upfront, that she hated "men" , and told many males in a divorce to "shut up" ... they had nothing to say that she wanted to hear. She was removed from handling any further divorce cases.

    Judges CAN do that. I knew one who hated white-cops & they got about the same treatment as you.

    However, if you move to another State, you can get another attorney to take your case to a different judge and likely get a fair shake, but you can never return to your State.

    The other alternative is to get a MAJOR LAW FIRM (not a 'storefront lawyer'), with endless resources, to take your case... they prob golf with the judge.

    Also, there is the State's 'Judicial Review Board', but that is a real long-shot.

    Hope this helps some.

    Been married 29 and 1/2 years to my first wife. Don't know much about divorce.

    But I do know that your lawyer stinks at this. Get another lawyer.
