Judge Beverly Wood of Marin County Court has been embroiled with me since the beginning as she is with most wives in divorce in Marin County. She is biased toward Dr. Velyvis due to his position as a surgeon, and treats him as her peer overall. Disgusting.
I had a right to an automatic renewal of my expiring DVRO against Dr. John Velyvis in May 2017. My attorney, Arvin Lugay filed the correct paperwork for the matter. The Court failed to address it for quite some time. Judge Beverly Wood stated my filing (DV-700) must have, “went awry as often happens.” I was stunned. She basically made me begin all over again. Then denied it without a hearing. This is one of several orders currently on Appeal with the San Francisco Appellate Court.
I had recused this judge for cause in October of 2017 at the recommendation of Marin attorneys. She failed to step down, then ruled against me in EVERY SINGLE hearing afterwards. I have been retaliated against for filing Commission for Judicial Performance Complaints against her as well. She designated me a vexatious litigant in the summer of 2018 to block me from access to justice throughout the final divorce. I never wanted to be a Pro se litigant. She erred by not following the California Rules of Court concerning attorney retainer fees in my divorce. A manifestation of abuse of discretion in this case.
I have removed the children’s first names on DV-TRO.
I have been unprotected. This is what happens when a woman cannot afford proper counsel. Money talks in Marin County, California.

I feel so sorry for what you went through with this judge. I too, went thru pure Hell during my 3 year divorce with this CORRUPT judge. I had all types of documented proof, witnesses, ect. but that witch took my insane ex-husband’s side every time. Everyone, including my lawyer were just besides themselves with the cruel injustice I had to endure because of her. That judge needs to be put in jail!
I hope you have peace now.
