But what is a remote hearing? A remote hearing is a hearing that does not take place in the actual courtroom. It could be held via your telephone or computer from a location other than the court. The court could also use the word virtual to indicate that you will not be physically present in the courtroom.
Courts now are using apps and software like Zoom, Teams, WebEx, or other video technologies to virtually connect the judge to the parties in the case. Your court will let you know. And in most cases, no special equipment is necessary.
You will receive a phone number to call or a video link to click with your smart phone, tablet, or computer. There may be an access code.
