Do I need to appear in court?
In many instances, your attorney can appear on your behalf for certain issues. Due to COVID-19, the courts are allowing more of this even as courts continue business. There are other times when this may be allowed as well. Each case is unique. Make your attorney aware of your situation so he can help provide the best representation on your behalf.
Attorneys are often able to appear in court on behalf of out of State clients. There are procedures and mechanisms that allow Attorneys to handle certain matters for out of State clients so that they can avoid the time and expense of traveling back to Georgia for court.
