Change of Judge in Family Law Cases

No matter what type of issue you may be facing, we are prepared to do whatever it takes to help you secure the most favorable outcome available in your case.

Working to Give You the Best Chance of Success

In many Missouri family law cases, the judge is your jury. The final decision will often lie in the hands of this one person, and it is important to take advantage of every opportunity to get your case in front of the right judge. Under Missouri rule 51.05, you are allowed to request a change of judge at any time within the first 60 days of the process without cause. In Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma, the rules are different, but a change of judge may be a possibility in your case.

Our experience in these matters has given us a familiarity with the judges in the area and their tendencies with regard to certain types of cases. Depending on your concerns and overall goals, we can make an informed judgment call as to whether it would be in your best interests to request a change of judge.
