  • Legal reasons to get a judge off a case

    What are the legal reasons to get a judge off a case in a family law case in Texas?

    Is there some list of reasons that can be used, or is not that clear cut?

    The judge we have is impossible to deal with and very biased in my opinion, other issues exist as well.

    Here are several sources of information about recusal in Texas:

    No, it's not that clear cut.

    Why? Are things not going your way? I used to say the same things about the judge in my divorce when things didn't go my way. In fact, I filed written motions and complaints accusing her of bias. Didn't do me a damned bit of good, isn't likely to do you any good either.

      Get yourself an attorney - sounds like you need one.

        More than 70% of family law cases in many states are done without an attorney.
        Not everybody wants or can afford one.

          Of course you can provide a citation for your statistics for "many states"?

            The reasons you mentioned here are not sufficient for a recusal. You should raise grounds like...

            "Interest in the subject matter, or relationship with someone who is
            interested in the case
            Background or experience, such as the judge’s prior work as a lawyer
            Personal knowledge about the parties or the facts of the case
            Ex parte communications with lawyers or non-lawyers."

            ...for recusal.

              Why don't you explain these in particular because they do not make sense.

                That's depressing.

                  I suppose it's not easy to change judges right?
                  Is it even worth the effort to try I wonder.
