  • NOTICE Effective 10/1/2021: If a restraining order, protective order, or standing criminal protective order has been issued on your behalf or on behalf of your child, you may elect to give testimony or appear in a family court proceeding remotely, pursuant to 46b-15c. Please notify the court in writing at least two days in advance of a proceeding if you choose to give testimony or appear remotely, and your physical presence in the courthouse will not be required in order to participate in the court proceeding. You may use the Remote Testimony Request (form JD-FM-295) to make this written request. You may use the same form with two days’ advance notice to request that your testimony in any family proceeding be taken outside the presence of the respondent/subject to a restraining order, protective order, or standing criminal protective order issued on your behalf and/or a child’s behalf pursuant to 46b-15c.
