Virtual Practice Spotlight: Partial Reopening of Philadelphia Family Court

Prepare for the partial reopening of Philadelphia Family Court

Join us and VIP volunteer Lee Schwartz, Esq. for an info session and conversation on the partial reopening of Philadelphia Family Court and its implications for volunteers.


Philadelphia Family Court will resume certain important services on June 1, 2020. In an effort to prepare volunteers, we are offering a brief presentation and conversation via Zoom on May 26, 2020 from 1:30-2:30 pm. Longtime VIP volunteer and mentor Lee Schwartz, Esq. will walk us through the court’s recent order on reopening to ensure that volunteers understand what will and will not be possible beginning on June 1. Key topics will likely include filing, deadlines and timelines, and emergency filings.

Our Practice Spotlights are the perfect way to overcome obstacles in your VIP cases, network with other volunteers, and deepen your commitment to expanding access to justice in Philadelphia.

This event will take place over Zoom, a free video-conferencing platform. Please RSVP below for the Zoom meeting information.
