Our Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court has continued the COVID-19 court restrictions in place until June 1, 2020, limiting required court appearances to those involving criminal first appearances, bond hearings, domestic violence matters, and emergency custody matters. All other matters that were pending in the criminal or civil courts prior to March 13, 2020 will be continued until a date after June 1, 2020.
All matters before the Clerk of Court including guardianships and estate administration will continue, but contested hearings that occur in any of those matters will also be put off until after June 1, 2020.
If you or your love-ones have a matter that needs to be addressed through the courts or have any questions about a pending matter and desire legal counsel to assist you in navigating through this time of crises, we are here for you and for now remain open and operating to assist folks in Henderson, Transylvania, Polk and Buncombe Counties with their legal needs.
We also remind you that during this time it is very important to have your affairs in order, and we will be glad to assist you with your estate planning needs.
We will offer video conferencing by Skype, Facetime or Zoom as an alternative to your coming into our office.
Please stay safe and healthy.
