Okay husband went to court this Monday and was blown away by the mediators requests. Husband went from sole custody in March to joint custody today, with a woman who hasn't been consistent and hasn't followed the court order.
Husband decided to tactfully tell the truth and his annoyances with mother. Mediator seemed to understand, and he felt like it went well. When he got the mediator report on Monday, the mediator had totally twisted his words and had forgave mother for her not following the court order.
Husband asked for a new mediator but the judge wouldn't do it for him. He feels like the judge and mediator are biased against him (and fathers in general: we sat in court for 6 hours and saw many fathers who we feel like wasnt' treated equally).
What can he do about this? Mother has gotten both major holidays, I don't know why Xmas was changed from father to mother this year, but when he asked the judge if he could have Xmas because mom had Thanksgiving, the judge asked father who had the child last year... he did, because he had custody and mother was no where to be found... doesn't this sound biased and somewhat sexist?
Can he ask for a new judge?
I am so upset because it just seems like mother doesn't have to follow the court order and it's fine but if husband even attempted that, he'd loose everything.
Thanks- California (Fresno County)
