Marital Masters Departing
Decades of experience in marital matters are leaving the Family Division as marital mastersí terms expire. The legislatureís expectation is that the loss of martial mastersí experience will be offset by the efficiency gains of having the Circuit Court staffed with judges able to hear cases in multiple subject areas.
At last count, there were 14 vacancies (7 full-time, 7 part-time) on the Circuit Court. By the end of the summer, three of the marital master vacancies are to be converted to judgeships.
The expiration month/year for each marital masterís current term of appointment is listed below.
