Order of Court

And Now, this 13th day of August, 2010, effective November 1, 2010, it is hereby Ordered that Armstrong County Local Orphans' Court Rule 15.4 be amended to read as follows

Rule 15.4A. Involuntary Termination of Parental Rights. Form of Notice.

 (a) The notice required by 23 Pa.C.S. § 2513(b) shall state the following in italics, which will be in addition to the language explicitly called for by said statute:

Should you appear and indicate that you intend to oppose the termination of your rights, the time will be used as a pre-trial conference and a new hearing date will be set.

 The language shall be added as the last sentence of the first paragraph of the statutorily prescribed notice.

 (b) The notice required by 23 Pa.C.S. § 2513(b) shall designate the ''Prothonotary of Armstrong County, Room 103, Armstrong County Courthouse, Kittanning, PA 16201 (telephone: 724-543-2500)'' as the person from whom information can be obtained about legal help.


 The Local Rules of Civil Procedure designate the Prothonotary as the person from whom information can be obtained about legal help. This rule makes the Prothonotary the source of similar information in orphans' court matters, as well.

 The Court Administrator is hereby Directed to:

 (1) file seven certified copies of the rule with the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts;

 (2) distribute two certified copies of the rule and a computer diskette containing the text of the rule to the Legislative Reference Bureau for publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin;

 (3) file one certified copy of the rule with the Orphan's Court Procedural Rules Committee; and

 (4) keep the rule continuously available in the Office of the Clerk of Orphans' Court Division for public inspection and copying.

By the Court
