Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Just because the website says his supreme court term expired, this does not mean he cannot be appointed or hired to be supervising judge of family court and to hear family court cases I am afraid. Once a judge has been appointed and they leave the bench they can be appointed to any other judicial position in NY as needed. Thus, I am afraid he can continue your divorce.
If you believe the judge is actually biased against you and he is making rulings that are not in line with the laws, then you have a right to file a motion to recuse the judge and another judge will review your evidence of bias to decide whether or not he should be removed from your case. However, while you believe you would like to get another judge now, in most cases we find that when customers get a new judge they are dissatisfied with the new judge as well I am afraid (meaning the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence).
