- Probate and Family Court
On May 4, 2020, the Middlesex Probate and Family Court entered a historic phase in its service to the people of Middlesex County when it completed the move of half their operation to a new location in the Lowell Justice Center.
Originally expecting large numbers of attorneys and litigants to take advantage of the increased access to the court in this large county, the move comes in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting all access to the court.
Although there are judges and employees at the Lowell site daily, like the Cambridge location, it is minimally staffed and operating under emergency protocols.
For more information on the new Lowell location, area being served by the North and South and how cases will be assigned within the county, please see the attached Memorandum on the Division of the Middlesex Probate and Family Court.
