Are the Courts open during this pandemic?

Unbelievably, the pandemic has now been with us for almost a year. During this time, the Massachusetts Court system has adapted in order to remain responsive while providing safety to both the public and employees. For the most part, hearings now occur virtually, either via Zoom or by telephone. New protocols are in place that relate to the scheduling of hearings, including trials, and the documents required prior to hearing. In some cases, documents can be filed electronically. If you are considering filing for divorce or for other relief in one of the Massachusetts Probate and Family Courts in Massachusetts, Attorney Sullivan is available, either by telephone or via email, to assist you and is knowledgeable about the current protocols and requirements.
