A decision to merge Wrexham and Flintshire Magistrates' Benches could have 'profound implications' on local people, according to Wrexham MP Ian Lucas.
Mr Lucas has written to the Lord Chancellor Chris Grayling, asking him to reconsider the proposal, because of the impact it would have on the Wrexham area.
The MP has been a long standing opponent of the proposed merger, and has made submissions to consultations ran by the Ministry of Justice.
In his letter to Mr Grayling, he says:
"This could have profound implications for Wrexham people - whether that is the court staff who face uncertainty over their jobs, the cost to all those involved in court cases having to make additional journeys to Flintshire, or indeed the impact upon our town's legal professionals."
"It is little wonder that the possibility of a legal challenge to the proposals is now being seriously discussed in Wrexham."
A spokesperson for the HM Courts & Tribunal Service said the decision was made after consulting local authorities, Criminal Justice System partners and stakeholders, including local MPs.
"Following a local consultation, Flintshire and Wrexham Local Justice Areas were merged into one new Area.
"The merger was to make the best use of judicial, legal and administrative resources to improve the service for court users.
"It will improve the effective delivery of justice by increasing flexibility in dealing with cases and increasing the opportunities for magistrates to retain experience and their competence."
A little girl of four was left home alone while her mother went out to work.
Police went to her home in Mold, North Wales, following an anonymous tip off to social workers.
They found the house in an unkempt condition and the girl was home alone with the front door unlocked.
The mother had gone out in the car to visit customers.
The enormity of what she had done had not dawned on her until later, Flintshire Magistrates' court heard .
She had since given up work and her husband has changed his working pattern her solicitor Bethan Jones explained.
The mother, who had no previous convictions, admitted neglecting the child in a way likely to cause her unnecessary suffering.
She was placed on a 12 month community order with supervision and she was sent on a "positive thinking" workbook programme run by the probation service.
The woman, who was ordered to pay £85 costs, was told by District Judge Gwyn Jones that due to her then working pattern, she "became oblivious to the risks" posed to her youngest child by being left at home alone.
