The Children’s Law Center is operating at a limited capacity in compliance with restrictions related to the COVID-19 virus. We are carefully following the advice of the CDC, local health officials in Forsyth and Guilford Counties, the NC Court System, and the Forsyth and Guilford County Courts.
If you are involved in an ongoing case, you should contact your own attorney to understand how the closures may have affected your case. Please keep the CLC GAL/ staff attorney assigned to advocate for your child(children) informed as to any changes in dates as you become aware of them and/or of any new information regarding your child (children).
We will strive to continue with our investigations and reports by remote means as much as possible.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline remains open, with special concern for those who are quarantined with their abuser. Please call 911 if you or your child are in immediate danger.
In light of governmental health agency recommendations, we are asking that if you are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough and/or shortness of breath, please avoid coming into the offices or meeting with CLC staff, even to deliver or pick up documents. Please do not come to our office or go anywhere if you are confirmed to have COVID-19 or have a family member at home that is confirmed to have COVID-19.
The safety of our child clients, their families, courthouse personnel, our staff, and the entire community are foremost in our minds at this unusual time.
