About the Court of Common Pleas

The decisions of a judge on the Court of Common Pleas have a very real impact on the lives of Bucks County families, because many of those decisions are life-altering. This year there are 3 VACANCIES on the Court of Common Pleas in Bucks County, which means your support will affect the life of every individual who comes before the court for the next 10 years.

For the past 20 years, every new judge in Bucks County has been first assigned to Family Court. We have not had a new judge with any significant family law experience in the past 20 years. The Family Court division is currently so back-logged that for the past year there have been 2 judges visiting from other counties to help with the Family Court caseload. It is imperative that we elect new judges who have significant experience in the area of Family Law so that we are able to meet the needs of Bucks County Families.
