Family Court Offers Wi-Fi Service

The Clark County Courts now offer free wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) access to customers who visit the Family Court and Services Center, located at 601 N. Pecos Road in Las Vegas.

The new service will provide court customers who bring Wi-Fi-enabled computers, cell phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) to the Family Court unlimited free high-speed access to the Internet from the main public areas.

“The Family Court Judges have long recognized the need to use technology to improve access to justice,” said Family Court Presiding Judge Gloria Sanchez. “By offering Wi-Fi access, we hope to create efficiencies for Family Court attorneys and improve access for customers who wish to find out about a court case. ”

The new Wi-Fi service is the latest effort by the Clark County Courts to use technology to provide services that would have otherwise been necessary to use court personnel. “The Court must innovate in order to provide the same level of service within a reduced budget”, stated Art Ritchie, Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial District. Chief Judge Ritchie also issued a mandatory e-filing order in September of 2009 requiring all filings in civil cases to be filed electronically.

The Courts already offer free Wi-Fi service at the Regional Justice Center in downtown Las Vegas. Also, virtual court services provided by the Clark County Courts allow customers to check court cases, file documents, pay fines and report for jury service from the Internet.
