Very obviously, Justice Mary Jane Hatton has a background, personal and professional, that the Ottawa Mens Centre would like to know about.

Please email us if you have any information about this judge that may explain why she become a troubled person hell bent on destroying me.


Justice Mary Hatton has left a trail of destroyed fathers and children alienated from their fathers. 

Oshawa Unified Family Court, like many others including Ottawa , Kingston and Belleville,  have reputations of being amongst the worst courts in Ontario. Mothers typically move to these areas simply to gain a tactical advantage so it offers mothers a real good reason to cause a change in venue especially if a judge has made an unfavourable order in a court in another more neutral court.

If you are a father in Oshawa Family Court make sure you are represented by lawyer who is prepared to make all the necessary politically incorrect but legally necessary arguments and of course competent and agreeable to represent you if an appeal is necessary.

The Ottawa Men's Centre  would to receive copies of reported and unreported decisions by Judges of this court and in particular, copies of unreported decisions by Justice Mary Hatton.
