COVID-19 General Orders and Press Releases

Current Child Custody and Visitation Orders

Nothing in the Governor's Stay-At-Home Order affects child custody and visitation orders of this court as well as custodial exchanges to facilitate those orders. The parties may travel to and from custodial exchange locations. The court expects the parties to continue to comply with all child custody and visitation orders. A party who believes that circumstances exist such that their custodial orders need to be modified may file a Request for Order seeking a modification of the orders. Emergency requests may be made as appropriate and in compliance with applicable procedures for doing so.

In an effort to curtail the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Superior Court of Kings County, will continue to provide Self-Help and Family Law Facilitator (FLF) services in person.  However, Self Help and FLF staff will be providing services inside the Court’s Lobby at the Civil Service Windows.  Only one (1) person per Staff member at a time will be allowed entrance into the Court’s Lobby.  This will provide the recommended six (6) feet social distance space required between people.  Court users will also be able to call in to the Self-Help Center to get questions answered and to be provided information regarding online services.
