The new season of Divorce Court premiered on August 22, 2022. Since the first show started in 1957, it has been one of the longest-running syndicated TV shows. Fans have liked Judge Faith of Divorce Court since she appeared in 2020. But American attorney Faith Jenkins was nowhere to be found in the recent season, which prompted several social media queries. So what happened to Judge Faith of Divorce Court? Has Judge Faith left the show? Here’s what we know so far!
Did Judge Faith Leave Divorce Court?
The show has had many different judges throughout the years. Judge Faith Jenkins has a stellar track record as a mainstay of the show since her introduction in August 2020.
Faith Jenkins replaced Lynn Toler in 2020, who had been on the show for 13 years. A former Miss Louisiana and Miss America runner-up, Jenkins was known for providing helpful advice with witty banter on Divorce Court.
Before she joined Divorce Court, Jenkins was best known as the host and judge of her courtroom show, Judge Faith. Before she became a well-known television figure, she worked as an attorney at the New York City office of Sidley Austin.

Fans are wondering about the reason behind Judge Faith’s exit from Divorce Court. On August 11, 2022, Jenkins shared a post with her husband, Kenny Lattimore. The couple is expecting a child together.
Jenkins wrote, “Season two of my crime show isn’t the only thing I’ve been producing this summer! My husband and I are so excited to share that we are expecting our greatest blessing yet!”
Furthermore, Jenkins is also involved with another show. On May 3, 2022, she announced that Killer Relationship with Faith Jenkins is renewed for a second season. The show is expected to be released in 2023. These two reasons could be why she left Divorce Court.
