Effective today, family Law litigants may file and present for ruling Restraining Order Applications and Responses via Resource Account email addresses, providing litigants and attorneys with another alternative to coming to court to file or present these papers. This new option expands on the current ability to file ex-parte applications, oppositions and fee payments via the Resource Account.
Litigants and attorneys are encouraged to use this remote filing capability which aligns with the Court’s Here For You | Safe For You initiative to reduce the number of courthouse visitors to assist with social distancing efforts.
Litigants now will have four methods for filing a Request for Restraining Order (including a request for a Temporary Restraining Order), a Request to Renew Restraining Order and a Response to either such Request.
