Welcome to our bi-monthly “Ask the Court” column. This column is designed to provide the public with answers to their general questions regarding judicial proceedings and the court system. For many, the courts are a vast maze of unfamiliar language and practices. And for most, the only contact they have with the court is a traffic citation or a divorce. This is your opportunity to ask the experts in the courts about things that you have heard about but never knew the why or the meaning of. Due to the high volume of questions that we receive, we may not be able to respond to every question asked. However, we will publish those that will be of most interest to the readers. The only limitation to the questions in this column are that they must be court related and must not be about a specific case. This column is NOT about giving legal advice or settling legal disputes.
