Wisdom From The Family Court Bench

This judge tells it like it is.

Judge Michael J. Haas of Cass County, Minnesota’s message for divorcing parents…

“Your children have come into this world because of the two of you. Perhaps you two made lousy choices as to whom you decided to be the other parent. If so, that is your problem and your fault. No matter what you think of the other party, or what your family thinks of the other party, these children are one half of each of you.

Remember that, because every time you tell your child what an “idiot” his father is, or what a “fool” his mother is, or how bad the absent parent is, or what terrible things that person has done, you are telling the child that half of him is bad. That is an unforgivable thing to do to a child.

I sincerely hope that you do not do that to your children. Think more about your children and less about yourselves. And make yours a selfless kind of love, not foolish or selfish, or your children will suffer.”

    Special Court Dockets must have been designed by people with Borderline Personality Disorder. My experience with this process has given my spouse the best seat in the theater as she enjoys watching her attorney, the judge, and my attorney work together to ensure that I am not capable of using even one civil right that the court provides to spouses that are not married to a person with BPD. I have no choice but to include our three adult children to encourage my spouse to at least communicate with me for the first time since she started this divorce two and a half years ago. Our Pre-Nup divides our assets. How ever special court dockets will reward any one that has a lack of morality !
