Legal Call Update

The Training Center will be releasing the 2018 Deskbooks in the months to come. These will be in 9 categories: Evictions, Civil Procedure, Criminal Procedure, Inquests, Magistration, Juvenile Law, Office Holding, Administrative Hearings, and Fees & Costs.

In order to ensure that the Legal Department can finalize these valuable resources, during the months of November, December and January, we will be able to take and return calls concerning legal questions only during the hours of 8:00 a.m. through 10:00 a.m. each day. We will resume normal hours for answering legal questions by telephone in February. In the meantime, please feel free to continue to post questions on our Legal Board. We answer those questions as soon as we can, but no later than five business days after posting. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding!
