Bucks and Surrounding Counties - Family Law COVID-19 Limbo

First and foremost, how is everyone doing? I assume you’ve all been better. These are tough and unpleasant times. Making matters worse, many folks who were expecting resolution of family related issues in their lives have now been told to wait patiently until the pandemic is over. This is easier said than done.

As a result of the court closures, trial dates have been cancelled, while some have yet to be scheduled. This state of limbo has caused tremendous stress and anxiety. But there is good news on the horizon! Starting on June 1, 2020, the Bucks County Courthouse will be open for regular business hours. Cases not yet scheduled will soon receive hearing dates. Cases that had previously been scheduled, will be rescheduled upon the simple filing of a motion. Emergency Order 2020-15

Also starting on June 1, 2020, court room operations will resume in Montgomery County, but on a limited basis. The Domestics Relations Office will remain closed until further notice, but support complaints can still be filed. The Family Masters’ Office is also closed until further notice, but hearings will nevertheless be conducted via “advanced communication technology.”

Family Law court operations will also resume in Philadelphia on June 1, 2020, but pre-existing court dates through to December of 2020 have all been automatically cancelled. They will be rescheduled by the court in due course.

The above may not be ideal, but it is a step in the right direction! In the meantime, the Family Law Department here at Goldman Law Offices is open for business, and ready to assuage your concerns and meet your continuing legal needs.
