        You’ve heard it - “My wife is crazy, but the courts are so prejudiced against men, she got full custody.” “He was abusing me in front of the children, but the judge didn’t even pay attention to me- he got full custody.”  “We have shared custody – how can I ever get him/her to be reasonable when it comes to the decisions about the kids?”

Oh, the horror stories we hear.  It seems like men’s groups and women’s groups are becoming more active about the sad state our family courts are in.  Anyone who’s been in front of a judge knows the fear, the devastation and the lifelong impact of their decisions regarding divorce and child custody.  It seems like everyone is let asking, “What was that judge thinking?”

Now is your chance to find out.  Join us Saturday to hear A Colorado family court judge explain how judges think, assess, and make decisions, and what laws they have to consider when making those decisions.

Angela R. Arkin has been a District Court Judge in the 18th Judicial District since 2002. She’s a graduate of Emory Law School, and is licensed in Colorado, Georgia and the District of Columbia. She began her judicial career by serving two years as a District Court Magistrate in Arapahoe County with a domestic and juvenile docket. She is currently handling a 100% domestic docket in Douglas County.
