Yes, Leah, THAT's what's wrong with this story. The judge thing. Otherwise, it's just brilliant.

Where do you live that would allow a 24 year old non-lawyer to be a judge? Most states require judges to be a member of the bar of that state. There are exceptions, but those are mostly Justices of the Peace, which would not be presiding over family law cases. Even in New York, which allows non lawyers on some lower level courts, family law matters are presided over by those with law degrees.

Connecticut particularly has stringent requirements.

I know it is an AU, but it should still have some grounding in reality, and I'm not sure I would be comfortable with a judge who didn't know the law.

Alternative: Luke is Christopher's attorney, fresh out of law school and this is the first case he won. Maybe add a year to his age, since 25 is still young enough to work here. Lorelai could still be angry at him for his involvement, while he defends himself as doing his duty (though he is fond of the money as well.)

Did you post this on here before or something? Because I remember reading a story almost exactly like this before.

Are you posting it again?

At 24 years old, Luke would not be a judge. Only in rare cases would he even have graduated law school (most enter law school between ages 22-24, though you have the rare 21 year old.) After graduation, there is clerking. Often judges spend a number of years as practicing lawyers.

Also, family law tends to favor the mother. Sad, and it's something that is in the process of changing, but this most certainly would have been the case when Rory was little. Christopher would have likely been stuck with high child support payments.
