I’m pleased today to present this guest post from the Honorable Joseph C. Adams, President Judge of the York County Court of Common Pleas, in York, Pennsylvania. Judge Adams is a well-respected judge, and a tech enthusiast who spearheaded the overhaul of the courtroom technology in York County. Attorneys appearing in York County now have access to cutting-edge technology in the courtroom, to help them better serve their clients.
As a family court judge, I deal with custody issues on a daily basis. One of the most frequent custody issues I have to address is the lack of communication between parents. In fact, lack of communication is what often keeps parties coming back into court. In my opinion, parents who are able to effectively communicate are, in the majority of the cases, able to work out most custody issues without the involvement of the court. That being said, some people are so bad at communication that I see them more often then some of my own family!
