Is Family Court open to the public?
For the most part, family law hearings are open to the public, although in certain cases involving minors (such as guardianship hearings, adoptions, etc.), the courts will generally be closed to anyone except the parties involved.
When should I go to Family Court?
You will need to go to court if you want a divorce, a financial or parenting arrangement (known as obtaining “consent orders”) or when there is an urgent problem in your family environment.
For most property and paternity arrangements, there are alternatives to court, if you can come to terms with your ex couple.
What happens if you ignore an order from the Family Court?
Family law disputes are civil proceedings, which is why most family law orders, including payment of support and attorneys’ fees, are punishable by contempt action.
