Governor Bill Lee has issued Executive Order 23 which will require all Tennessee residents to stay at home unless they are carrying out essential activities. This Order will remain in effect until April 14, 2020. Since all Government functions are considered essential, this Order will allow us to continue to provide our necessary services to all our clients.
Under directive from the Governor of Tennessee regarding the declaration of a state of emergency on March 12, 2020 regarding the COVID-9 virus, the Tennessee Secretary of State, Division of Business Services is implementing some new procedures. These new procedures will begin on Monday, March 16, 2020 and will remain in effect until further notice. Click HERE for the new procedures at the Tennessee Secretary of State’s office.
The Mayor of Nashville and Davidson County, John Cooper, has issued an Amended and Restated Order to the previous Order that went into effect on March 16, 2020. This Amended and Restated Order keeps the Safer At Home order in place until April 24, 2020. A copy of that order can be read HERE.
The Tennessee Supreme Court has also declared a State of Emergency for the Judicial Branch of the Tennessee government. All in-person proceedings in all State and Local Courts will now be suspended through April 30, 2020. For more information, please click HERE. This does not affect our ability to search at the Court level but will limit the results to those cases filed prior to March 13, 2020. Information on all County office closings will be communicated to our clients as that becomes available to us.
Nationwide several other Secretary of State offices have also updated their policies to limit visits to their offices. This will have minimal affect for most of our orders but you can be assured that we will communicate any applicable restrictions upon receipt of any order that involves an impacted office.
Most importantly, we have not reduced our staff nor closed our office, but we will be allowing our employees to work remotely as needed. We will have employees in our office and available, as always, to assist our clients during our normal business hours of 9 AM Central Time to 4:30 PM Central Time. You can contact our office via email (the preferred contact method) at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 615-646-1404.
