Weather Delays and Closures

A snow delay including a delay of two hours or three hours, or a full closure as the case may be, will be declared by the Chief Judge of the First Judicial District and posted to the media by the court.

If the snow delay falls on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday, in the event of a two-hour or three-hour delay due to adverse weather, all matters scheduled in the delay period will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

If the delay falls on a Thursday, when abuse and neglect cases are being heard, all matters scheduled in the delay period will be heard on a trailing docket basis commencing at the conclusion of the delay period. For example, if the first matter on the docket is scheduled at 8:30 a.m., it will be heard at 10:00 a.m. at the conclusion of a two-hour or three-hour delay period, and all matters will be heard on a trailing docket, but no earlier than their scheduled hearing time.

If the court is closed on the day you have a scheduled hearing, your hearing will be rescheduled and noticed by the court.

Interpreter Scheduling

If an interpreter is needed for a hearing, please contact the TCAA at (505) 455-8156 at least 5 days prior to the scheduled hearing.
