As a Davidson or Davie County NC non-custodial family member, surely you recognize the problems that the NC Family Courts and Judges force upon you and your children. However, we ask you to click on the RED and BLUE graphic below to get informed on WHY this system is in place, and we ask that you pay special attention to the Social Security Act, Title IV, Part D, Section 458 which is the legislation that provides REVENUE for Welfare and Low Income Assistance programs on your inability to have equal parentage and access to your children/grandchildren/step-children/nieces and nephews. After reading the data contained by clicking the graphic below, read further to learn why NC Fathers believes that Judge April Wood and Judge Rod Penry advocate for the current system that is financially benefiting Davidson and Davie County NC Lawyers.

NC County Court

NC Fathers believes that Judge April Wood and Judge Rod Penry are well aware that the amount of money spent by parents fighting in the NC Family Courts over 18 years is more than double what is reported by State officials in regards to child support arrears. If Judges were concerned about children being financially supported, they need to look in their own system. For example, the usual child custody retainer is $5000 for both parents. That is $10,000 right off the bat. Given that the system is so divisive, it is assured that two parents will fight for 18 years. $10,000 x 18 equals $180,000 from just ONE family. When you multiply this figure times every divorced family in the court system, you have an overwhelming amount of Lawyers making money.

NC Fathers believes that Judge April Wood and Judge Rod Penry are going to be hard pressed in saying that there is no industry in the NC Family Courts where the State of NC, Lawyers in the County, and Special Interest groups are benefiting highly while you the non-custodial family are alienated from your children.

  1. this judge has no idea how to be impartial. she interjects her own opinions into cases.she oversteps her bounds.she has no considerations for the children and whats really best for them.if you find out she is going to be your judge then get it postponed til another judge is on the bench

  2. I am a mother and I being treated like the non custodial father. I was throw out my married home and my daughter was taken from me. My ex husband lied about me make me out to be unstable and unable to see my daughter. Court April Wood has been over my child custody for the last 5 years. I have done everything that the courts have asked me to do. Judge April is so bias and allow a child to be around drugs and alcohol. That isn’t a good enivornment for a child to be raising in. I will continue to fight for my child and I continue to stand up to Judge April Wood. It is about the money and not the safe and welling being of children.

    • Katherine, we agree with a large part of what you said, but we have some concerns that you think that non custodial fathers should be treated this way.

    • I have been the custodial parent for my daughter for 14 years. This year my daughter decided to experiment with the KiK app and I believe almost got herself kidnapped. The police in Rowan County who investigated it said her step-father and I saved her life. We took her phone from her which prompted my daughter to claim to her father that we were abusive parents. Judge Wood signed an ex parte order that took my daughter away from me without any investigation, just based on the lies that my daughter and her father constructed. Unfortunately, then the Judge that heard the case Judge Penry (who happens to be my original lawyer’s husband) also ruled in her father’s favor even though I had brought 7 character witnesses including my daughter’s therapist. My daughter’s therapist said that it was, in her opinion, best if I continued to have custody. I am a Teacher of the Year, my husband is a Marine and the whole court hearing focused on the fact the my husband has been diagnosed with service related PTSD. Up until we took her phone, my husband and daughter did everything together and she often told him that she wished he was her father.
      We were told by Judge Penry that my daughter deserved privacy on her phone and we had no right to take it from her!!!! She was 13 when her father bought her the phone. Random checks showed inappropriate conversations and website visits.
      Is there something wrong with our courts? YES!

  3. I can say I as a father had a good experience with April Wood. She was able to see right through the mother of my children who had filed restraining order. The matter however was still continued by the plaintiff and her attorney, but Judge Woods stood up for me by saying “this seems like a custody per se case, which is inappropriate.” Unfortunately she won’t preside over the next hearing it will Judge Myers. We will see how it goes. Calling judges out though will not help the cause.
