Dear Fort Bend County Residents,
The 505TH Judicial District Court is one of three District Courts that hear family law cases to address the growing needs of Fort Bend County residents. When I was sworn in as the first Presiding Judge of the 505TH Judicial District Court on September 1, 2015, that same day I began hearing and disposing of cases. Under my leadership, the 505TH Judicial District Court has disposed of over 10,600 cases.
The 505TH Judicial District Court hears the following type of cases: divorces that include complex property matters, child custody, child support, domestic violence, child neglect and abuse. This Court also hears adoptions and various other family law matters. We currently have over 1,800 active family cases, with an average of 200 new case filings each month. Experience is crucial for maintaining an effective, efficient Court at a time when judicial resources are limited. I have that experience.
I am honored to be part of our county’s justice system. I believe I have earned a reputation for being knowledgeable of the law, fair and firm. Above all, I strictly follow the law as it was written by the Legislature, the Texas Constitution, and the United States Constitution. It is my job to apply the law and enforce court orders, not to make laws from the bench. No matter your political affiliation if any, I can assure you that politics play no part in decisions made in the 505TH Judicial District Court.
Once you have become familiar with my legal experience, personal background and my service to our community, I think you will understand why I can confidently ask for your vote. Please support me in my campaign for re-election in 2020.
Thank you in advance for your consideration. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
Judge David S. Perwin
This picture is so fitting. Amy has worn this mask 12 hours per day since late February 2020. Amy works in the Emergency Room at Memorial Hermann Hospital. She has been a nurse for more than 15 years. I am so proud of the work she does. She takes risks to her own personal health to serve the community. We should all appreciate the work of our first responders. Amy is truly a hero.
After caring for patients for 12 hours, Amy comes home to take care of our latest foster dog, who is presently Pluto. Many of the dogs we foster have ailments that require extra care. She volunteers to care for the dogs, and the dogs get the best treatment. She has saved so many dogs from being euthanized, I have lost count. In addition, we have 5 rescue dogs of our own which is obviously quite a handful! She puts together fundraisers on top of the actual fostering, and she has personally raised thousands of dollars for various dog rescue organizations, Saving Our Companion Animals (SOCA) and Houston Huts 4 Mutts to name a few.
Amy is a 1998 graduate of Texas A&M University with Bachelor of Science in Community Health. She is also a 2005 graduate of the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Amy and I have been together for over 18 years. She is truly the love of my life. We have 3 wonderful boys: Noah, Aden and Dylan. Amy is an incredible mother and wife. I truly won the lottery when we met in March 2002.
