10/22/2020Administrative Order re Guilford Courthouse Closure
From: Blake, Tiffany G. <Tiffany.G.Blake@nccourts.org>
Sent: Tuesday, May 12, 2020 4:52 PM
Subject: Custody Mediation Orientations for May and June 2020
Good afternoon, I have received several voicemails the past few days for Orientations for May 28 and into June inquiring if the Orientation is in person. At this point in time, all May and June Orientations will be ONLINE. There will be no in person Orientations in May or June. Fortunately, I have plenty of space availability in the online CMO’s and this is as adequate and accommodating as possible given the circumstances. For your clients who need to participate in the CMO, please have them email me at this email address or you can also forward me their email addresses and we will send the link and instructions to them via email. It is imperative that we get that email information as quickly as possible as I send out the link a few days in advance.
If for any reason an individual is unable to participate in the online CMO please contact me directly and we can discuss other options and solutions to continue advancing cases during this time.
Additionally, if I have missed anyone on this email list, please feel free to share amongst colleagues in an effort to get the word out.
