Gwinnett Overview

Named for Button Gwinnett, one of Georgia’s three signors of the Declaration of Independence, Gwinnett County is one of Georgia’s largest counties, boasting a population just shy of one million residents.  The Gwinnett County Superior Court is located in the sprawling judicial complex located in the County seat of Lawrenceville, at 75 Langley Drive.   The Gwinnett County Superior Court bench is comprised of ten (10) Judges, and two senior judges, all of whom hear cases related to family law, including, but not limited to divorces, modification and contempt actions, family violence matters, etc.  Similar to some of its large neighboring counties, the Gwinnett Superior Court judges require assistance in their effort to deal with all of the filed legal matters.  Accordingly, to help deal with the large amount of work the Superior Court judiciary relies heavily on magistrate judges, who are often tasked with hearing temporary and final hearings in pending family law matters. Practically speaking, this means that the judge to whom your case is initially assigned may very well not be the judge who ultimately presides over a temporary or final hearing in your case.  A formal request can be made in a case for matters to be heard by the assigned Superior Court Judge, rather than by a magistrate judge, but such an act may not be necessary in all cases or in all situations.
