Judge Roggenbuck has made great strides in her first year on the bench, but there is still much more work to do. Amanda has a strong understanding of how the legal system affects families, and her track record is one of results for the citizens of Tuscola County. Here are a few of the many accomplishments in Judge Roggenbuck’s first year on the bench:
- Reviewed all of the minor guardianships that are maintained on the Probate court docket.
- Taken responsibility for the Family Court functions.
- Utilized a combination of technology and unpaid interns to eliminate the need for additional staff in the Probate Court.
- Improved record keeping and created a website to make court documents and forms available to taxpayers.
- Secured a grant to help offset costs to update technology in the Probate Court room, eliminating the need to transfer inmates from correctional and mental health facilities.
