Judge Clinton Rowe – Carteret, Craven, Pamlico County Courts

Judge Clinton RoweJudge Clinton Rowe is an elected Judge in the Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC District and Family Courts who undoubtedly was elected with the help of tens of thousands on Non-Custodial Fathers, Step-Mothers, Paternal Grandparents, and Aunts and Uncles. Judge Rowe replaces Judge Cheryl Spencer after defeating her in the 2012 election. NC Fathers is an organization of NC Non-Custodial families who seek reform in the family courts and with social services agencies and we need your help. Please review our GOALS, join our MAILING LIST, and tell us about your experiences with Judge Clinton Rowe on our FACEBOOK PAGE as it pertains to child custody, child support enforcement, and other family law matters in Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC. Things to keep in mind after leaving court in the before mentioned matters: 1) Did Judge Rowe respect your importance in your kids lives as an equal parent, or did he rule in such a way that marginalized you as the historical visitor 4-5 days a month and who must pay a big government enforcement agency to have access to your kids? 2) Did Judge Rowe allow a custodial mother to move your child(ren), grandchildren, or step-children hundreds of miles away despite your wishes for equal parentage and access? 3) Is Judge Clinton Rowe ignoring contempt violations from the custodial mother, but dealing harshly with you in contempt matters? In this article, we are going to raise other questions for Judge Clinton Rowe that we think Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC non-custodial FAMILIES need to be aware of when entering the District and Family Courts, and we ask that you extensively share this article with other families using the wildly popular social media sites to bring about greater awareness.Posts related to Judge Clinton Rowe of the Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC Courts – Carteret County Department of Social Services, Sheriff Asa Buck

Carteret County NC Domestic Violence and the courts NC Carteret County County social services complaints and lawyers

Important Information: How many men in Carteret County NC have been arrested on an allegation of domestic violence, jailed and lost their jobs, their reputation, lifelong access to their children, and been found guilty in the preponderance of the evidence courts having no evidence or witness proof and the Judge said yes to guilty for political correctness?

How many men in Judge Clinton Rowe’s court have had this happen to them?

UPDATE 6/19/2015 – We are receiving considerable contact from non-custodial fathers who have restraining orders issued on them by Carteret County Judges in which they are ordered to have no contact with their wife or girl friend yet have provided us extensive documentation where while under the restraining order the other party continued to publicly and maliciously malign and speak ill of the adjudicated person. In EVERY case brought before a Judge about a person asking for no contact but continued to talk about the case and misrepresent information, they did nothing about it.

Judge Clinton Rowe - Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC Non-Custodial Families

Roughly half of custodial mothers today have male children who will one day be pushed to the margins of their kids lives if they experience a divorce and have children. Where do you think these non-custodial grandmothers (who will also be marginalized as well) will stand then? With Equally Shared Parenting?


Is there a Carteret County lawyer who is knowledgeable on domestic violence and child custody

To be fair to Judge Rowe, he is a newly elected Judge, and none of the questions we raise in this article is meant to say that he is not a fair or unbiased court official. However, historically, the District and Family Courts have been very biased with Fathers and treated them more as payment providers that true parents. And, this article is also meant to gain the attention of non-custodial step-mothers, grandmothers, and aunts who get equally hurt and devastated when Judges in the Family Courts push you away from your young loved ones. To learn more about this historical bias, we ask that you click on the RED and BLUE graphic below to learn more. Additionally, NC Fathers welcomes any rebuttal or comments from Judge Clinton Rowe and our Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC non-custodial readers.

NC County Judge

Judge Clinton Rowe and the Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC District Courts

Earlier in this article, we asked Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC Non-Custodial families three questions related to Judge Clinton Rowe. In this section, we are going to ask many more. It is these questions that Non-Custodial Fathers, Step-Mothers, Grandmothers, and Aunts and Uncles need to remember in future elections when voting for Judges in NC.

  • Judge Clinton Rowe should be familiar with the legislation that birthed Child Support Enforcement. Specifically, Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. With regards to Section 458 Judge, which is providing revenue for the Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC Social Services agencies based on each dollar collected in child support that is then used to replenish Welfare and Low Income Assistance Programs, is this the reason that the State of NC and the courts need for a non-custodial family to be kept at a distance so that they pay greater child support and trigger more federal funding of Social Services? Is this the reason for 4-5 day a month visitation awards, and why Judges consistently allow custodial mothers to move kids hundreds of miles away despite many in NC talking about absent fathers? Are we sure that the District and Family Courts are not creating absent fathers?
  • Does Judge Rowe have any concerns that since non-custodial fathers are a source of revenue which keeps social services jobs and programs alive, is there a wide open door for abuse on them while being service driven and helpful with custodial mothers in child protective services investigations?
  • Can Judge Rowe explain why when non-custodial fathers get into trouble financially, mothers, sisters, wives, and children have to visit them in jail, but when custodial mothers get into trouble financially, there is expanding housing, food, educational, medical, financial, therapeutic assistance and tax incentives to keep her safe? Would it not make more sense to strengthen BOTH parents for the greater good of children?
  • Is Judge Clinton Rowe one of the Judges lamenting about the large number of absent and disinterested fathers?
  • With respect to Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County Lawyers, is the divisive Family Court system more about the financial welfare of your colleagues? Does Judge Rowe not realize that a custody battle generally costs $15,000 PER parent, and that these parents will fight two in 18 years (sometimes many more) for a grand total of $60,000. This is a lot of money that could go towards a college education, home, or healthcare of a child.
  • Is the newly elected Judge concerned about the growing culture of false allegations of domestic violence and child abuse that hopeful custodial mothers routinely use as a tactical tool in the Family Courts successfully? Do Judges allow these false allegations to proceed to conviction to stay in the good graces of the domestic violence industry that gets greater federal money each time a new statistic is generated? Do these agencies help with re-elections?
  • Is Judge Rowe concerned that custodial mothers use their FREE child support enforcement attorney to drive non-custodial fathers into bankruptcy because they have to find $5000 in retainers with private attorneys PER incident?
  • Judge Rowe, what about the number of women who are putting children up for adoption and not allowing adoption agencies to discover a biological father who may very well want to raise the child? Also, what about the growing culture of paternity fraud, why are these mothers not brought up on criminal charges?

If you are a Carteret, Craven, or Pamlico County NC non-custodial family member, NEVER again let anyone tell you that the NC Family Courts are not destructive, biased, or hurtful to the non-custodial family/child relationship. And, we need your help to give us input on Judge Rowe since you are the ones in his court.

Judge Clinton Rowe and Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC Non-Custodial Family Voters

Judge Clinton Rowe should be well aware that there are a LOT on Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC non-custodial fathers, step-mothers, grandmothers, and aunts and uncles, and that more and more are created in the District Courts Monday through Friday. Additionally, Judge Rowe should be aware that these families make up a HUGE swing vote given that they come from every racial and ethnic background, economic status, and political background. What about the amount of WOMEN in paternal families who are being hurt by the NC Family Courts Judge Rowe?

Here is our point. NC Non-Custodial families are a HUGE VOTER base that can bring about real change in the NC Legislature as it relates to Family Law reform, and we are asking you to recognize your large numbers, despair, and join with us to build an organization that holds Judges and Politicians accountable when they continue the bias. NC Fathers believes that Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC children receive far greater resources and opportunities when they have two equal parents and extended families, and that this is something that social services and enforcement will never be able to bring.

Again, we are asking that you share this important article on Judge Clinton Rowe of the Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico County NC District and Family Courts with your friends and relatives in other families on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and other sites to bring about greater awareness.

  1. I can tell you that Judge Rowe is extremely fair. I was in court the other day with my son who’s case was not heard that day but during the day he gave full and sole custody to another father who had documented his case well. I was impressed.

    • Amanda, our article on this Judge was not implying that he is biased or against fathers. In fact, this article is to solicit feedback from Carteret County folks like you did. We know there are Judges who are neither pro-father or mother and make good decisions based on each case. Hope your son’s case goes well.

    • I can second this, I was in court a few weeks back and saw Judge Rowe being EXTREMELY fair to Fathers, I saw almost an even split of Fathers getting custody and Mothers, and even some almost equal visitation orders. It is refreshing to see this in Carteret County especially after Judge Spencer is gone.

  2. I have to tell you Judge Rowe is very even handed when it comes to child custody. I was in court recently on a matter that I wanted to watch and ended up sitting there all day and it got so late the matter had to be heard another day so I ended up watching court two days and both of the days I saw him had custody to both Mothers and Fathers.

    • Shalonda,
      Thank you for commenting. We tend to agree with you. One of our volunteers recently was on vacation in Carteret County and decided to do some court watching and ended up in Judge Rowe’s courtroom. Her report back showed exactly what you just described.
