The novel coronavirus has arrived, bringing with it a host of non-health related consequences, including the potential for massive legal and economic issues.
While many courts have closed their doors to hearings and other formal proceedings, lawsuits and other emergency actions can still be filed.
Criminal cases, Protection From Abuse (PFA) cases, bankruptcy proceedings, tax sales and petitions, civil lawsuits, personal injury lawsuits, mortgage foreclosures, sheriff sales, and evictions can still be filed throughout Pennsylvania.
Even though it may seem like the world is quickly grinding to a halt, the legal process will keep marching on in some capacity.
If your rights are being threatened and you need to legally restructure your financial position, file for bankruptcy, or pursue financial interests which require legal intervention, reach out to us immediately for a free consultation.
