If you have ever been involved in a Family Court case, or if you have even heard about one, chances are good that you have heard complaints about how SLOW it is and HOW LONG everything takes. Even Charleston Family Law attorneys are known to complain. Why can the process be so slow? Please consider the following:
1) There are a limited number of judges for the Family Court.
Not only is there a shortage of judges, there doesn’t seem to be much interest in creating more seats. Our state legislature controls the funding for these positions, and the funding remains limited.
