Summary

Summary

Effective October 1, 2018, the Superior Court of Contra Costa County closed its Children’s Waiting Room (CWR) at its Pittsburg facility in order to relocate the CWR to the Peter L. Spinetta Family Law Center in Martinez, which currently houses its family law operations. The Superior Court of Contra Costa County is requesting to continue to receive CWR funds in order to build sufficient resources to reopen in Martinez by July 2019. The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee recommends that the Judicial Council approve the continuation of the distribution of funds to allow the court to resume ongoing operations at its new location without decreasing service levels.body
