Impact of COVID-19 & Necessary Court Services to the Public in NJ

Despite Impact of COVID-19 & Social Distancing Limitations, NJ Judicial Staff Work Diligently to Ensure Justice is Served Securely & Safely

With court hours based on a county-by-county decision, these measures and options to operate remotely to a certain extent ensure that both the staff and the public everyone can stay healthy and safe.

Despite Impact of COVID-19 & Social Distancing Limitations, NJ Judicial Staff Work Diligently to Ensure Justice is Served Securely & SafelyCOVID-19’s significant impact on the New Jersey Judicial system can easily be seen in the volume of curtailed court proceedings and backlogged trial court cases. Although all federal civil and criminal jury selections and jury trials have been postponed until January 4, 2021, the courts are working diligently to ensure that justice and other court services can be served and transacted remotely as well as securely.

According to recent NJ state guidelines and information, both Superior and Municipal Courts have resumed some in-person court services. A limited number of judges and judicial staff work on-site each day to accommodate attorneys, litigants, and public members with scheduled appointments or legal proceedings.

With court hours based on a county-by-county decision, these measures and options to operate remotely to a certain extent ensure that both the staff and the public everyone can stay healthy and safe.

If you have received a Municipal court summons or have a scheduled hearing, now more than ever is the time not to ignore these appointments or delay seeking experienced legal guidance. Being convicted of a crime in a NJ municipal court can result in jail time, heavy fines, loss of driving privileges and seriously impact your employment, educational, and housing opportunities, and result in a permanent criminal record.

This means protecting your rights by keeping on top of any scheduled hearing, motion, conference, or other legal matter and having a knowledgeable lawyer on your side to answer questions about application deadline filings, family law matters, or exploring your legal options. Also, courts aren’t eager to create an additional backlog of divorce and family law cases either. Sometimes, alternative methods of resolving disputes such as mediation or arbitration may be more effective and economically sound alternatives to facilitate settlements agreeable to all parties.

Have You Missed a Court Date? Are You Wondering What To Do?

Unexpected events happen, which may prevent someone from being able to make their court appearance. In one of our recent articles, Consequences of Failing to Appear in Court or Respond to a Court Summons,” we discussed how if you or someone you love in New Jersey missed a court date for a traffic violation or a criminal offense or needs guidance on resolving a license suspension, arrest warrant, or an outstanding case, you must consult an experienced attorney who can best present your unique circumstances and explains your missed court appearance. Thus, possibly minimizing or avoiding any resulting penalties.

Open and honest communication with one´s legal counsel can provide context, prevent misunderstandings, arrest warrants, or time spent away from loved ones. Besides, a strong defense of the underlying charges can increase the chances of an acquittal or reduction to a lesser charge.

Does Your Office Support Client In Remote or Virtual Court Proceedings?

As the digital transformation of virtual court proceedings has tried to meet the challenges the pandemic has placed on the judicial system, it has also exposed numerous social challenges and discrepancies between internet access and connectivity.

Does Your Office Support Client In Remote or Virtual Court Proceedings?As lawyers, we are committed to eliminating any disparities, in the same way, we would in a physical court, by ensuring that if our clients are using technology remotely (i.e., via our office), they can still get justice. Just imagine how not having access to more modern means of internet connectivity (i.e., somewhat modern laptop or computer, high-speed internet) and the connection is lost or dropped or how lacking an environment conducive to properly hearing the proceedings or sufficient privacy to give testimony, could affect a client’s remote hearing case.

We work with our clients to ensure they can focus on protecting their rights and seeking justice by supportively guiding them through this “new normal” of a remote judicial process.
