If I need to go to court during this COVID-19 pandemic, what should I expect?
On 3/26/2020, the staff of My AZ Lawyers, addressing the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic writes:
Most of the courts in Maricopa, Pima, and Pinal counties are currently doing hearings telephonically. Most but not all of the courts. There still are a few of the courts that are still holding hearings. If you have an upcoming court date (and are one of our clients), call and check with our office and we will advise you as to the status of your court hearing.
Additionally, you could check with the court’s website to see whether the court is open and allowing visitors. Each court has a section on their homepage with updates as to what the status of the court is currently. Our paralegals and staff at My Arizona Lawyers can assist you with the status of your court hearing.
If you end up having to go to court, please be aware that some courts are screening people before letting them into the building. This screening may include having your body temperature taken and may also include questions about your recent travel and if you are experiencing symptoms. These precautions will be in place for the foreseeable future until this pandemic is controlled.
Do I have to come into the office for a consultation?
No. We offer telephonic consultations all the time, not just during public health crises. This makes it easier for those who work or care for others full time to discuss their case without worrying about taking time off work and arranging transportation and child care. If you have documents you are concerned about explaining over the phone, scan them onto your computer so you can email them for review during your consultation. Contact us
today and set up a free over-the-phone consultation.
