CA Chief Justice- The courts are and continue to be an essential service


1. Suspend all civil trials, hearings, and proceedings for at least 60 days, with the exception of time-sensitive matters, such as restraining orders and urgent dependency, probate, and family matters. All such hearings have been suspended by Administrative Order Nos. 20/06 (Civil) No. 20/07

2. When possible, provide that any urgent matters may be done telephonically, under the general policy encouraging use of telephonic appearances in Code of Civil Procedure section 367.5(a) and California Rule of Court, rule 3.670.


“all non-emergency Family Law trials, hearings, and proceedings shall be suspended through June 1, 2020, and all such matters currently scheduled to be heard on or before June 1, 2020 shall be set for a Status Conference scheduled to be heard after June 1, 2020. The Status Conference will be set by the Court prior to the next currently scheduled Hearing date. All such matters shall be trailed from their currently scheduled hearing date to the date of said Status Conference so that no matter will lose its retroactivity. Although hearings may continue to display as calendared in the online case access system, no hearings other than emergency matters will be conducted during the closure period.”
