    Man beats his soon-to-be-ex-wife in judge's chambers during divorce hearing

    I just can't believe that it happened -- there are just no words for it," Scott-Gonzalez said Tuesday, as she continued to recover from a broken nose and a fractured jaw after being beaten by her estranged husband in a judge's chambers. "The incident was disturbing and shocking," Broward County Circuit Court Judge Ronald Rothschild recalled Tuesday, adding, "In addition to the violence, the fact is that it happened in a court proceeding."
    The proceeding that took place Friday in Judge Rothschild's chambers was the last hearing in the divorce of Scott-Gonzalez and her husband of about five years, Paul Gonzalez.
    Thirty-five minutes into the hearing, when the issue of child support was brought up Gonzalez -- acting as his own attorney -- decided to leave the room, according to Michael Dunleavy, the attorney for Scott-Gonzalez. The couple, both former Marines, are the parents of two young children.
    "He goes, 'I'm not going to pay child support,' and Judge Rothschild says, 'You know all parents have to pay child support, we all have to support our children,' and he (Gonzalez) stalked out of the room," said Dunleavy.
    "He went calmly," remembered Judge Rothschild, "not happily, but calmly walked out of chambers, took one step out of the door, then in a blink of an eye -- I mean literally one step -- he came back in."
    Upon returning, Gonzalez suddenly started punching his estranged wife, according to those in the chambers.

    Well , he was right, he's not going to be paying child support. He's going to be in jail while we support his kids.

    Maybe the Judge will have a better understanding where officers are coming from in domestic situations from now on. Applying logic and reason to situations that do not involve logical and reasonable people is a fool's errand.

    Absolutely unbelievable! I'm still amazed by the sudden snaps of violence that people engage in. I'll admit, I wanted to beat the hell out of my ex during child custody disputes but that does not mean I would have acted upon it. The fact of the matter is, he is still the father of my child and I don't want my son to ever think that it is okay to resort to violence when in a relationship. So, I can hate him as a(n) (ex)husband but still respect him as a father...and I expect the same in return. Personally, I don't care what he feels about me as a wife, as long he respects me as the mother of his son.

    "I thought you go there to get everything taken care of. Why would they (court officials) choose a place that wouldn't be safe? I thought it was safe," said Scott-Gonzalez.
    "The only response I can give her is I go into that courtroom anticipating that I am going to be equally as safe," said Judge Rothschild, adding, "Violence is not OK any where but it is certainly not OK in the court of law in the United States of America."
    Two words that preface the potential for violence. When will the powers that be even try to get a grip on domestic violence?

    I'd say she's got proof for grounds for divorce.
