Are you sure you cannot hire an attorney to work with you? If not, have you considered speaking to a paralegal who may be able to give you some tips on presenting evidence or maybe helping you organize. I mention this option, because it may be a cheaper alternative.
Often when a judge is seeming rude or ignoring someone, it's because he/she doesn't like the person's demeanor or attitude. That is one of the downfalls of a person representing themselves. They can get upset or over emotional and judge's take it wrong. Maybe that's not what you are doing, but it is possible, that in your struggle to get your views out there, you are coming across wrong to the judge.
Another thing you could do is to prepare your case and practice presenting your info to friends and get a critique.
BotXXXXX XXXXXne--I recommend an attorney. If you cannot, then I hope I helped with some suggestions.
You can file a Motion to Recuse, asking the judge to voluntarily get off the case and let another judge hear it. You would have to have a really good reason, of course. Some judges are happy to get out of a tough case.
Also, in some jurisdictions, the judges rotate and you could get a different judge each time you go to court, actually. That may be to your advantage. Check out ahead of time and see of the court operates that way, and try to get the hearing set when the 1st judge is on a different rotation.
