A Misconception of Hiring a Private Judge
There is this misconception when hiring a private judge but that isn’t the case. In all actuality, it is the attorney on either side that can make this arrangement. That said, both you and your spouse will split the costs in order to get a ruling on the case.
It is important to remember that one party may not be happy with the judgment passed down. So, even though you may be paying for hiring a private judge, there is a chance that the ruling will not work out for you.
What is private judging? And what does a Private Judge do?
Another question to ask before making a potentially expensive decision is to ask yourself what a private judge does. Because each area has its own rules, private judges will generally only hear domestic relationship cases, civil cases, and breach of contract cases.
What wouldn’t a private judge do? Well, they wouldn’t hear any kind of case that would require the use of a jury. So, if it is a criminal case, they more than likely are not going to be involved. They only handle an array of civil cases.
