Newly appointed Judge Patricia A Gorman who took over for Judge Fields (our previously appointed judge) is now presiding over my case has suspended my visitation with my two children ages 9 and 10. It's been 5 months now since I've seen them. I'm also not allowed to have any contact with them. I just recently when to court for a follow-up session and Judge Gorman still refuses to let me have any contact with my children or provide me on the reasons why I can't see or speak to my children. She did mention that I'm the only case that she has ever done this to. I've been dealing with the family court system for over 23 years now and I've never been held in contempt or ever been in trouble with the courts. I always pay my child support and don't even have criminal record, yet a criminal has more rights that I do. Even the Cambridge Family Probation officers have stated to me that there is no reason why I shouldn't be seeing my children and can't figure out why this is happening to me and that they lost a great judge when Judge Fields left Middlesex Family Court. I've never come across a judge who's been so biased and who blatantly abuses her power. It's obvious that she doesn't have the experience nor the capacity to make rulings for the best interest of my children. Within one year of her being appointed judge, she has destroyed my family and that's one family to many. We deserve better and my children deserve better than having Judge Patricia A Gorman presiding.

Eric, We recently had a similar situation. Ever since judge Fields left my fiance's ex-wife has dragged him into court for one thing after an other. He was held in contempt and arrested for diagreeing with Judge Gorman. He has never been in any trouble before and pays his child support and then some. I wish there was something that could be done. The judge clearly has issues with men and is not ruling in a fair manner following the letter of the law. The situation is going to bankrupt us and he will lose his job if she keeps granting these ridiculous orders. We are very frustrated and I have lost faith in the judicial system.
