    Hello! I'm preparing a request for a legal document to the Family Court ("Juzgados de Familia") in Colombia and the letter is addressed to the Chief Judge. What would be the most appropriate spanish equivalent to the title of "Chief Judge"?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions I receive!

    Hi,

    I don't know much about legal matters. But, in South America, every chief judge of court is called "Presidente".

    Example:
    Presidente de la Corte Suprema.
    Presidente de la magistratura.
    Presidente del Tribunal.

    So, Presidente de la Corte de familia should be the equivalent for "Family Court Chief Judge"
    I hope this helps.

    Regards!

    Good afternoon, fsabroso!

    This a good opportunity to thank for every contribution you have had with my work! I have seen you everywhere !
    I have heard Presidente de la Corte Suprema here in Colombia and agree that it is equivalent to Chief Judge

    Thanks again fs and this also instead of ImmVisas' who received an instant collaboration and no thanks at all!

    It does't matter, we all are here to share.

    Castellano, España.
    ¿No sería correcto el término "juez supremo"?

    No lo creo, ese término correspondería a Jefe de la Corte Suprema,...
