Dear JACUSTOMER - You would need to file a motion claiming judicial bias or conflict of interest. You can't just ask for a new judge because you don't like the decision or the personality of the judge. If you have a reasonable basis for bias or conflict then it is possible that the judge will recuse himself by virtue of the motion. If that doesn't work then you can appeal the decision to a higher court on the basis of the bias or the conflict of interest depending on the situation. This motion can be made at any time during the case when bias or conflict is discovered.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
