****APPOINTMENTS ARE STILL REQUIRED TO PROBATE, OBTAIN A MARRIAGE LICENSE AND FOR NOTARIES.****

Please click on links below for more information on making appointments.

 

General business will now be conducted exclusively by mail or drop-box at the main entrance.  If using the drop-box please seal contents in an envelope and clearly mark it for Register and Recorder.

 

Procedures for probating, marriage licenses, notaries and Orphans Court have not changed as appointments are still necessary.  Find the appropriate area and click on it below to access the details.  We are not able to accommodate any walk-ins and appointments are very limited at this time.

 

Public using office resources in person must first gain access by calling the R & R office and providing us with their first and last names to get on a list with the guards located at the main entrance.  If you are not already on the list, please call the office at 570-327-2263 to be included. Note:  the office will be closed 2/15/2021 for President's Day.  PLEASE CALL AT LEAST ONE DAY IN ADVANCE FOR PLANNING PURPOSES.

 

After arriving at the office, proceed to the front entrance only and sign up for a 2 hour time slot at the table immediately inside the office entrance.  Simply write your name and date only at the top of your ticket and go to the front counter.  While standing behind the Plexiglas, your ticket will be time-stamped/validated.  The white copy serves as your ticket to keep with you and the yellow copy will be maintained for our office records.  The white ticket expires after 2 hours and is then invalid.  Your time has then expired to use the office for that day.  Each person is permitted only one ticket per day.  It is required to sign in from 8:30 am until 4:00 pm every day.  After 4:00 pm no sign up is necessary.  Again, please remember to get your ticket first before entering the work area.  We will adjust for any overcapacity issues.

 

Masks are required at all times everywhere in the R & R office.  Please social distance at all times.  Use "every other" computer to maximize social distancing requirements. Our primary objective is the health and safety of everyone during these challenging times and we very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation.  Naturally, changes may be needed depending on the circumstances and it may be with little or no notice.  Please continue to check the webpage on a regular basis.

 

Note:  Even though licensed attorneys are permitted in the courthouse without having their names on a list at the main entrance, we are requiring that everyone (including attorneys) follow the same procedure as outlined here.

 

We will mail out documents if we see too much mail has accumulated in mailboxes for attorneys.

 

PLEASE REMEMBER THE TICKET FOR ACCESSING THE OFFICE STARTING DECEMBER 14 IS GOOD FOR ONLY TWO HOURS.  AGAIN, THANK YOU.

 

 

Naturally, with any unexpected event such as a resurgence of the virus or in the unlikely event we have an overcrowding situation, we reserve the right to change policy on short notice.  Although we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, we do it in the interest of your safety.

  

As always check this web page for updated information.
