Inclement Weather Policy

The Montgomery County Court adopts the following uniform policy for all Common Pleas Court Divisions in the event of inclement weather:

  1. If the Courthouse is closed due to inclement weather, all in-person scheduled events will be rescheduled for another day by Chambers or Court Administration.  If an event is scheduled virtually for that day, it is up to the individual Judge whether to proceed as scheduled, or to reschedule the event;
  2. In the event of a one or two hour delay, all in-person matters will be pushed back by one or two hours, respectively.  In-person matters scheduled after 1 p.m. will be subject to cancellation.  Parties with matters scheduled after 1 p.m. should contact Chambers to verify, once the Courthouse is open.  If an event is scheduled virtually on a day involving a delayed opening, it is up to the individual Judge whether to proceed as scheduled, or to delay or reschedule the event.
