Massachusetts Deed Indexing Standards for 2018

The Hampden County Registry of Deeds would like to inform you that the Massachusetts Registers & Assistant Registers of Deeds Association has issued an update to the Massachusetts Deed Indexing Standards for 2018


New Courtroom Recording System

The trial courts have implemented a new courtroom recording and transcript production system called “For the Record Court FM” (“FTR Court FM”).  The courts in the following courthouses are already using FTR Court FM: Attleboro, Barnstable, Brockton, Dedham, Edgartown, Fall River, Framingham/Natick, Haverhill, Lawrence, Lynn, Malden, Nantucket, New Bedford, Newburyport/Ipswich, Northampton, Plymouth, Quincy, Salem, Woburn, Worcester.  Click here for more information.

FTR Court FM allows attorneys to listen to court recordings remotely from their offices without ordering CDs.  These recordings are available almost immediately after the court event and attorneys do not have to wait for the court to make and mail out a CD.  Click here for information on recording requests. 


Practice XXXV of the Uniform Practices of the Probate and Family Court Department - Change of Name Actions

On August 1, 2018, Practice XXXV of the Uniform Practices of the Probate and Family Court Department, titled "Change of Name Actions", will take effect. The current forms for change of name actions are scheduled to be replaced with substantially revised, reformatted, and renumbered versions, effective July 20, 2018, Click here for a copy of the list.


New Policy Regarding Bail Hearings and Bail Reviews

Regional Administrative Justice, David Ricciardone, in conjunction with the Hampden County Clerk's Office, has mandated that all bail reviews and bail hearings that are brought forth after bail has been previously set shall be conducted via video conferencing at 11:00 am in Courtroom 1.
