Do you like attending court virtually? It certainly has pros and cons. While these virtual changes were originally thought to be temporary and would retreat with the pandemic, it now looks like that at least some virtual court appearances may be here to stay. The process of hearing family law cases has drastically changed. Now, almost everything except emergency matters is being held virtually, and many things, such as status conferences and judicial pre-trials may continue to remain virtual long-term.
Even though the procedures may be different, the laws remain the same. In the midst of COVID-19, your parenting plan is still in effect. Court orders still need to be followed, and you need to make sure that you continue to act in your children’s best interest.
While it may be frustrating for most court hearings to be virtual, it is imperative that you have patience, and that you work with your attorney to move things along as quickly as possible. If for any reason your case is not being heard in a timely manner, your attorney may be able to either request a status conference, or file a motion for an earlier hearing. It is not guaranteed that either request will be granted, but it may be helpful to at least try.
