Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Destin Magistrate Lawyers

We Handle General Magistrate & Family Law Cases

Judges in Florida can choose to appoint a general magistrate to help supplement their immense caseloads. Although judges generally oversee matters of serious consequence, such as major criminal violations and civil matters involving catastrophic injuries, they often delegate their minor duties to the magistrate. If your family law dispute is sent before a magistrate, you have the right to object.

Get Help from Our Law Firm

Most magistrates are able to process cases faster than a judge, which is why the party initiating the divorce often want their case to go to the magistrate. Although the magistrate is helpful and can speed up your divorce case, it is important to remember that they are not judges. Magistrates are not appointed by the governor or by voters and are instead licensed attorneys selected by a judge to assist with heavy caseloads. The magistrate doesn’t issue orders in cases and must submit their written recommendation to the judge for approval.
