Requesting a New Judge
Do you believe you were the victim of unfair bias? Watch this video about requesting a new judge for your family court proceeding.
Can I request a new judge?
Once you participate in a family court proceeding, your initial judge will remain your judge so long as they are sitting on the bench. Unfortunately, you can’t just request a new judge because you dislike them. However, there is the ability to seek recusal of a judge or you can file a motion to disqualify the judge, but that is not something that is easily done short of gross misconduct or clear bias, such as the judge having an immediate interest in the outcome of your actual case. You should remember, if you’re going to file a motion to disqualify the judge or seek recusal, in most cases, your application will go to that judge, and that judge will be the person deciding that application.
