 Larry D. Willis Sr of The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court


is an inclination of temperament or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective and a refusal to even consider the possible merits of alternative points of view. People may be biased toward or against an individual, a race, a religion, a social class, or a political party. Biased means one-sided, lacking a neutral viewpoint, not having an open mind. Bias can come in many forms and is often considered to be synonymous with prejudice or bigotry.




Larry D. Willis Sr of The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court

No one wants to go to court but sometimes it is unavoidable.  I have been to court many times and I have learned allot about the law not because I chose to but because I had too.  After being in a court room on multiple occasions I realize that most judges are pretty fair and you always felt a sense of safety being in front of a honorable fair judge that made a fair ruling of the case whether it was a ruling in my favor or not.    Many people get angry when they lose in court and go off the deep end.
I’m not angry and I never had a problem with any ruling because I knew that the court was fair and the judge ruling over the case was unbiased.   Also most of my life I have always had allot of confidence in our legal system.    This all changed once I had a case at the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court with Judge Larry Willis presiding.   Since then I have talked to many people that have been in front of Larry D. Willis of the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.
One attorney told me this when I scheduled a free consultation “Judge Willis is quite possibly the worse Judge in the area!”  Furthermore he went on to say “Off record, Judge Larry Willis will bash attorneys, bash witnesses and he is totally bias.”  He also said that he has defended multiple clients in front of Judge Larry D. Willis for many years.   This gets kind of scary for a lawyer that I just met to tell me this and to put so much emotion into his words as he did in a free consultation appointment.  Since then I have talked to group leaders of fathers’ rights movements and heard horrible stories from other fathers who have experienced the loss of visitation and who work like slaves to pay an enormous amount of child support set by Judge Larry Willis of the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.   Not only in most cases will this Judge not listen to the father he will try to intimidate you as much as possible.  This Judge will order you to pay 65% of your income leaving you with almost nothing to live on.
Judge Larry Willis of the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court is as bias as they come!  He is the most unfair Judge that I have ever seen in a court room to this day aside from Judge Lewis of the City of Virginia Beach Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court who was removed in 2002 for being unorthodox.

Accordingly, we order that Judge Lewis be, and he hereby is, censured for engaging in “conduct prejudicial to the proper administration of justice.”   Va. Const. art.   VI, § 10;  Code § 17.1-906
 Now Judge Lewis was bad at times but on occasion he still made a fair ruling.     In the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court a father has no rights!  There is nothing fair in this court.  There are stories about the other two judges in Chesapeake online that I have found but I can’t say anything about them because I only faced the bias wraith of Judge Larry Willis of the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.   In this his court room you have no rights if you are a father.  The mother gets exactly what she wants and then some. 
Don’t get me wrong here, I want to be a good father and take care of my kids and the fathers that do not pay child support, sure!   Throw the book at them!  But when you’re a good father that works his tail off to pay his support you should always get a fair trial.   I believe in taking care of my kids but to take all my income and also to take all my rights to my children away in one of the most awful things anyone can experience. 
 Judge Larry D. Willis of the Chesapeake JDR Courts will hit you with thousands of dollars in arrears every time you go to court that way he can take your right to an appeal by making you pay thousands to a bond before you can file an appeal.  He purposely  takes all of your income then if you want to file an appeal you have to somehow come up with thousands of dollars.  This is a judge that does not want his ruling to be changed and abuses his power and authority.  
In Virginia a judge can make up income out of thin air!  It’s called imputative income.   Even if you make less money than you did before or if you have lost your job!  I petty any person in the court room of dishonorable Larry D. Willis, Chief Judge First Judicial District - Serving J&DR Court(s).    If your income has gone down or if you lose your job he will still make up a fairy tale income that you never made and hit you with thousands in child support arrears so there is no way to appeal your case.  I never have seen a Judge so dishonest, so bias and so unfair. 
In my first case in front of Judge Larry D. Willis of the Chesapeake JDR Courts he kicked the court reporter out of the court room, little did I know that this was my only defense against this  dishonorable Judge.
  Judge Larry D. Willis Chairman, Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission of Virginia
Judge Larry D. Willis of the Chesapeake JDR Courts was once a chairman on the Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission. A report was filed with the Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission to investigate him.   They did nothing!  This is corruption in our judicial system!
  Judge Larry D. Willis of the Chesapeake JDR Courts hides behind the confidentiality of the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court and abuses his judgeship knowing that your only defense is having a court reporter which he will also have removed from the courtroom.  This is one of the most low down dirty tactics that I have ever seen or heard of used by a judge.  Everyone is entitled to have a court reporter in the room but not in the court room of Larry Willis.  There is undoubtedly no fairness, no justice and you have no rights as a father in his court room!
After talking to a few fathers groups they  told me that the same situations have been happening all over the country with hardly any awareness given to the public.   The public needs to know what’s happening in our courtrooms across America.   I think since the dead beat dads program started in the 90s Judges were given too much power and harsh laws were passed specifically aimed at the non-custodial parents.    
Imputative income is a law that should be abolished.  It allows the Judge to make up a fantasy income, an income that never existed right out of thin air.  Then they can charge you with thousands in arrears on that fantasy make believe income.
Wake up people!   Judge Larry D. Willis of the Chesapeake JDR Courts breaks federal law on a daily basis.  Judge Larry D. Willis, Sr. was once or even maybe still is a chairman on the Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission board.   He reviewed and fired other judges while he is a total hypocrite.   He is probably one of the worse judicial offenders in Virginia!
Let’s get together to remove this injustice!
If you are in the court room of Judge Larry Willis of the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, you have my sympathy and if you want to do something to have this Judge removed than contact me at:  peoplevslarrywillis@gmail

Update On Judge Larry Willis of The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts

AUTHOR: Bias Victim - ()



Thanks to Ripoff Report a few others have joined the fight!  

 There are many victims still out there; they are just scared and fearful. 

 We need more people to join this battle, and get together with evidence and a detailed report of your stories.  We hope to submit all of our information together to The Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission even though Judge Larry Willis has connections and close personal friends working on The Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission of Virginia. We hope to launch an investigation to review the cases at The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

 We have already have evidence against Judge Larry Willis proving that he deviates from the guidelines in most child support cases.  Also even though federal law limits the amount that can be garnished from your paycheck, dishonorable Judge Larry Willis will make up your Income and ignore federal law. 

 We have proof that Judge Larry Willis has ordered way more than 65% of disposable earning from fathers paying support.  In one case he has ordered over 100% of the father’s income to be paid to Child Support.

 Even with the evidence we have now I am not confident that it is enough. With Judge Larry Willis being allowed to do the things he does on a daily basis, year after year speaks for itself and his connection and friends on The Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission of Virginia who allow this and will do nothing.

 Judge Larry Willis picks on poor fathers, after studying some of his cases it shows how he will pick a favorite and who he likes in a matter of minutes.

 It seems that appearance plays a big role in his court room which can throw out the facts of the case completely.

 These are just a couple of the emails that I have received so far regarding Judge Larry Willis and The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court System:

 Jane Doe,

 God bless you in Jesus name.  Hello. My Name is EDITED.   I have also experienced a great deal of unfair treatment of fighting for my only child for 8 years.  In terms of having documented proof, which has been outright ignored. Let me introduce myself first a little more. This is not about money ( I also have paid an unusual amount of child support.  My story began when I considered the military and signed over all rights, and when I changed my mind, the other party kept my only child, and basically always lies, and so it has been a vicious cycle of proven her lies wrong over and over, but this is the problem, I have always proven the opposing party wrong, with documents, records, everything. And for 8 years, this court has destroyed my life.  We need a change of circumstance. i work with abused kids, earning an Engineering degree, volunteer with groups in my city, and my family, and are always shocked at  how in the world is this  legal?

 The opposing family actually knows Judges, and I have dealt with Guardians who have outright lied, keep in mind I have 8 years of proof! I have lived paying rent in two states just to see my child every day. The court change the time I drove 6 hours to court yesterday to have it heard without me, and they chose to grant the opposing party who has actually in their care my son had broken tooth, crutches, their on medication when the school tested them, and they did not need it, happen chance their neighbor s a psychiatrists, and now they have a written prescription that also on top of child support, gives them an extra $900.00. So now i am going to get another Lawyer and appeal again. Any help is greatly appreciated, both ways. GOD bless. 

 Some US marine:

I've observed firsthand over the last 18 months this evil judge come after my dirt-poor son with a vengeance!  I felt so bad that I paid for a good lawyer for him seeing the court appointed ones seemed afraid to represent my son in front of this evil b*****d.  It seems his entire court and the prosecutors are out for men!  The lawyer I paid a lot of money for couldn't believe the judge in picking what he wanted to hear and see during one of his hearings. The evidence for my son was overwhelming, yet he would have nothing to do with it, resulting in a loss for my son. 

Our lawyer was in total disbelief and took on the appeal for free which she won handily...thank god!  That's just the tip of the iceberg!  He's in his court several times a month as his wife is trying all she can to lock him up and take away his visitation for revenge.  I'm hoping Judge Willis will wake up and see thru her lies that have been brought to his attention, but he ignores all of it!  I can go on and on!!  So my question, do you know if anyone has gone to the local news outlets to have them look into this evil man?  Also, do you know of any advocacy that will help my son's legal battles with this dishonorable and corrupt Judge?  Thanks!

Please people do not live in fear!   We must join together and have this dishonorable Judge Removed!!!

 If The Judicial Inquiry and Review Commission of Virginia will do nothing and will not even lift a finger to investigate Judge Larry Willis of The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts then we must come together with everything we have and send our evidence and information to every local and national news media center outlet possible.  Power is in numbers, we need more people to come forward with case information and valid evidence.

  Judge Larry Willis is ruining people’s lives on a daily basis for nothing more than his own courtroom entertainment. 

Please!  We need your help!  Come forward! 

Try to look past your individual case as hard as it may be.  Please consider the facts and look at the bigger picture here!

Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court

AUTHOR: legalexpert - ()

I have observed the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court for a few years now as well as the surrounding courts in the Hampton Roads area.   There is a big difference in the Chesapeake court system.  The Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court is more likely to deviate from child support guidelines and basically just throw the out of the court room.  They are more likely to ignore federal rules and guidelines in place to protect non-custodial parents.     It’s almost as if it is its own government that’s makes its own laws and rules to follow.


Many people in the past have created groups or get meetings to try and do something about the Judges in this court and the decisions made by Judge Willis and his judicial clan.   Most people are powerless and without an attorney willing to go up against this court they lack the voice to be heard.   Truth is most people would rather have help with their individual cases rather than join together for what needs to be done.  Making a difference and changing things will take courage.   This court has intimidated so many that the thought of going against this court brings fear combined with the low confidence, lack of legal knowledge and financial ability it eliminates participants.  They just want help with their individual cases when that is largely the biggest mistake and this form of thinking allows this court to continue to operate in the Wild Wild West.   It as if we are stuck in the Dark Ages while being in the technological modern age.

With the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court I have seen fathers lose their right to be a part of the children’s lives.   With loss of visitation while paying outrageous amounts of child support also keeping fathers in the arrears with large imputative false income amounts created out of thin air added  to a impossible to pay child support debt.    I have seen fathers that get no paycheck at all and become homeless or jailed because of this court.  Our government created child support guidelines for a reason and its intentions were not to force fathers into slavery or to have them live like dirt while thoughts of suicide plaque their everyday life.


When this court takes 65-75% of gross income fathers lack the financial ability to hire an attorney or to pay appeal bonds to get the justice that every American is entitled too.  There is no need to go on with stories of cases I have seen or get into any details about these cases.   I am glad that someone was brave enough to create this complaint and helped to bring public awareness to this broken court system in Chesapeake.    While I do not believe this will help or change anything this at least is a start.  Something should be done and needs to be done.  People’s lives are being ruined daily by this unfair court system.

 I am not here to take either side. I will however make a few points that MAY give you some clarity. It is traditionally the mother that is favored in ANY judgment. This means that they would rather give a child to the crack addicted mother then the upstanding father. While it is unfair IN GENERAL, it IS well within the Judges rights. As for child support, obviously the judge believes that YOU can afford more then you are reporting. YOUR only remedy is to apply for a "Hardship Appeal".

I bring this up to you BECAUSE of how "unfair" and "biased" you claim this judge is. YOU have presented YOUR OPINIONS as FACT. The web IS a media outlet. Which means legally speaking YOU have broken about a half a dozen laws. YOU are under the SAME umbrella as every printed publication in the US. I remind YOU that Judges stick together and support each other. All it will take is a court order and the judge YOU have been dealing with and have reported your opinions as fact on. This means that HE will know its YOU. So I would be careful going forward. While you may wish "justice", the only justice you may get is added civil charges against you. I warn you of this because I have seen it happen way too much.

I would retain a lawyer and then request the judge recusse themselves. You MIGHT be able to have an investigation started on his rulings. This would allow your lawyer to ask for the recusse since one of the cases they would be axamining would be yours. If this judge is running for re-election, a tactic I have seen used is that YOU retain HIS direct opponent as your legal counsel. This would also have the judge excusing himself from the case. The big problem is going to be PROVING he is biased and NOT judging on the FACTS of your case. Just because YOU feel he is biased doesnt mean he is. There is a difference between what you THINK and WHAT you can prove.

At the end of the day, YOU have to answer to YOU. You will have to weigh your options. If you get a lawyer and go after this judge, you could be putting yourself at a greater risk. If you do NOTHING and accept his ruling, THAT may not be the wisest course of action. YOU have to ask yourself......"WHAT CAN I PROVE?" and go from there. I just warn you that the legal area is a "Good Ole Boy" kinda network. These judges and lawyers hang out with each other all day. If you dont believe me, go to court and NOT as a defendant. Just observe and it will SHOCK you as to the level of familiarity that these people have. If you were to believe shows like "Law & Order" ect, you would THINK that these guys are at each others throats. But that just is not the case, pun intended.

Its YOUR choice as to what you do. YOU are the one that has to live with those choices. YOU are the one who has to foot the bill, even if you win. So good luck and remember this information. Dont go after the judge until you are 150% sure you can take him.

 The Media Doesn't Publish & the Government Won't Release" Every year 24,000 men commit suicide. Every 22 minutes one male commits suicide. Based on the fact that a divorced male is 2.5 to 3 times more likely to commit suicide than the average male, the estimate for divorced men, most likely fathers since there is tremendously more trauma placed on them, committing suicide every year would be 15,000 to 18,000 men. Men more likely to commit suicide after divorce, study finds Men seeking a good reason to salvage their marriages may want to consider this: A new study finds that divorced and separated men are two and a half times more likely to commit suicide than married men. Divorce, however, doesn't seem to lead more women to commit suicide -- a surprising finding considering the popular wisdom that women suffer more than men after a divorce, according to the study, published this week in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. Listen to the typical shaming language in the cnn article above (published in 2000). Little did this idiots know that the obvious other recourse was not to marry in the first place. | Distraught Father's Courthouse Suicide Highlights America's Male Suicide Epidemic The other most common suicide victims are divorced and/or estranged fathers like Derrick Miller. In fact, a divorced father is ten times more likely to commit suicide than a divorced mother, and three times more likely to commit suicide than a married father. According to Los Angeles divorce consultant Jayne Major: "Divorced men are often devastated by the loss of their children. It's a little known fact that in the United States men initiate only a small number of the divorces involving children. Most of the men I deal with never saw their divorces coming, and they are often treated very unfairly by the family courts."
