Vaccinated guests in our office do not need to wear masks. We will also gladly wear masks for your appointment if your are more comfortable with them. We are cleaning the office after every meeting in the office.

The Connecticut Courts remain open. Most court sessions are remain online. At present the courts are transitioning to going back to in-person hearings. However, the majority of all court appointments currently still remain online.
There is a large backlog of cases from COVID. Additionally, the courts cannot hear as many cases online as they can in-person. The are working through the backlog. The courts have also eliminated the short calendar system and have instituted a case date system along with Resolution Planning Conferences with Family Relations to help screen cases and develope a resolution plan for them. For now, all these appointments are taking place online. This is starting to change will new dates and new cases starting to be assigned an in-person court appointment.
