A Special COVID-19 Message from Clark Law Office Near Lexington, Kentucky (KY_, on Family Law Issues

Due to so much uncertainty with the COVID-19 virus, people with family law issues are, understandably, under a lot of stress and have many questions. We can help.

Some have worried, with the courthouses being closed, what would happen to a person who needs an Emergency Protective Order? Victims might fear they will have nowhere to go to seek legal protection. The reality is that even with the courthouses basically closed, our judges are still handling domestic violence cases. The exact mechanics will vary among courthouses, but the cases are still being heard. If you are the victim of domestic violence, you can still seek an order of protection.

On the other hand, if you are served with any legal documents about domestic violence, it is critical that you are aware that those cases are still being heard.
