COVID-19 Information Update
If you are in danger, call 9-1-1, and get help immediately.
Maryland courts are currently closed to the public; however, the courts will continue to hear certain types of emergency matters.
Domestic Violence and Peace Orders
Call first to provide information and for instructions on where to go. Once the commissioner issues an interim order, a judge will determine whether the next hearing must be heard in person, can be heard with remote electronic participation, can be scheduled after the emergency period has ended, or can be resolved without a hearing. More information for the public is available on the Maryland Courts website.
