Family Courts during the Lockdown
Although the lockdown and social distancing makes things inconvenient, the legal system is still operating. Many courts have implemented social distancing rules and have turned to remote video meeting programs to hold court appearances that normally would take place in person. Here at Harmony Law, we understand that your legal issues are continuing in spite of the lockdown, and we are here to help you in any way we can. Harmony Law is prepared to assist you with your divorces, custody issues, maintenance modifications, and other family law disputes. Here is a guide to the practice of family law in Colorado and Wyoming courts during the lockdown:
COLORADO: The Larimer County Clerk of Court is still open, and is still accepting family law filings such as petitions for dissolution of marriage or legal separation. Most Colorado court filings can be submitted through electronic methods, making it much easier to comply with social distancing requirements while still managing your family law dispute. In-person court appearances such as status conferences and temporary orders hearings will likely be delayed or held remotely during the lockdown. Some “essential” proceedings are continuing as normal, such as emergency motions to restrict parenting time.
Although the process will look different during the lockdown, family law proceedings are still going on in Colorado courts. Contact Harmony Law if you would like assistance with your family law dispute. Call 970-488-1857.
WYOMING: The Laramie County District Court has adopted the Wyoming Supreme Court's temporary plan to address the lockdown. This plan restricts in-person court appearances to those deemed essential or necessary. However, numerous judges and judicial officers are still holding hearings via video or telephonic methods, meaning that many hearings will continue as scheduled. The Laramie County Clerk of District Court is also accepting pleadings through e-mail to encourage social distancing. This means that Wyoming residents can still file family law pleadings during the pandemic.
