    FAMILY COURT CUSTODY ORDERS - IMPACT OF SCHOOL CLOSURES
    There have been questions from counsel and litigants pertaining to Governor Wolf’s directive closing all schools in PA for the remainder of the school year and whether that will affect custody orders. The answer is no.  Summer custody orders take effect on the date that school would normally have ended for the school year. The school year schedule for custody remains in effect until that date for all Westmoreland County custody orders.
    DOMESTIC RELATIONSDue to uncertain financial situations in the current times, Westmoreland County Domestic Relations will accept Consent Agreements to temporarily modify support Orders.  All Orders modified are subject to a further Review at a later date
