Government Shutdown Affecting Federal Courts

The United States District Court for the District of Arizona has posted the following notice regarding the Government Shutdown: 

“In the event of a general federal government shutdown due to a lapse in funding appropriations from Congress, the U.S. District Court, District of Arizona will remain open for business and all case related activity will remain as scheduled in all district locations through Tuesday, October 15, 2013. The respective Courthouses will remain open to the public during normal business hours during this time. Should the federal government shutdown exceed 10 business days, new information regarding Courthouse operations will be posted in advance of October 15, 2013.”

A majority of the cases we handle, with the exception of bankruptcy, are filed in Maricopa County Superior Courts and therefore will not be affected by the Shutdown at this time. Federal Courts, however, are affected by the Shutdown as you see from this notice. We sincerely hope this Government Shutdown is resolved in short order. If you have any questions or concerns regarding how this shutdown may affect your case, please contact us at (623)551-9366 or by our contact form at
