Judge Schedule at Norfolk County Probate & Family Court
Norfolk runs a flexible schedule, but each Judge has his or her own day for hearing motions. The Bar Association of Norfolk County has implemented a Conciliation Program in accordance with Supreme Judicial Court Rule 1:18 (Uniform Rules on Dispute Resolution), which provides court-connected dispute resolution services to the court. Norfolk County’s Family Court in Canton was one of the first to roll out Limited Assistance Representation. The LAR program permits attorneys to assist clients on a limited basis without fully representing the client. The client and attorney agree on the specific, discrete tasks to be performed. Depending on the nature of the attorney’s involvement, the attorney may or may not appear in court.
