(This amendment provides $274,791 each year from the general fund and one position to establish a new juvenile and domestic relations district court judge for the 19th Judicial District in Fairfax County. The 19th juvenile and domestic relations district court has an implied need for 7.6 judges based on 2015 annualized filings data. This is an increase from the 2013 study that determined a need for 6.6 judges. The court is currently authorized for seven judges, but is funded for eight, and eight positions are currently filled. One judge on this court is retiring as of April 16, 2016. This amendment is contingent upon final passage of Senate Bill 57 by the 2016 General Assembly. Senate Bill 57 would increase the number of authorized judgeships in the 19th district juvenile court from seven to eight.)
