What is a Judge?

Judges work in Family Courts.
Sometimes when families can’t sort out problems on their own, the Judge asks a Guardian find out what the child/young person in the family thinks and feels about their situation.
The Guardian talks to those who are important to you and tells the Judge.  The Judge listens to everyone.
The Judge then decides what is best for you after listening to what you and the important people in your life say.
