Family Bar: New local rules regarding the filing of exceptions in support and ED cases are found here. The rules ares now in effect. Pursuant to the rule you must now attach to your exceptions a copy of the order you are filing exceptions to. Additionally you must attach a L205.2(b)B motion cover sheet. On the cover sheet you must indicate if you are requesting a copy of the transcript from the family court hearing. Exceptions that do not comply with the rule will be non-complied and returned. If you fail to include a cover sheet, it is possible that the exceptions will simply be filed at the Prothonotary and never forwarded to court scheduling which would result in significant delay in getting a hearing scheduled. If you have any questions regarding the new rule, please contact my Law Clerk, Jen Linn. ~ Judge McCoy
