Contact Information

Pursuant to Probate and Family Court Standing Orders 1-06 and 1-04, scheduling of most court events is now done by the court.  The major exception is motions, which are scheduled by the moving party on the assigned Judge’s Motion day.

Any questions about a scheduled event should be directed to the Registry, or to the Sessions Clerk or Assistant Judicial Case Manager for the assigned Judge.

Pre-Trial Conferences

Pre-Trials are scheduled by either the Registry Clerks or the Sessions Clerks.  Some Judges only have 3 Pre-trials scheduled for a particular day, and will then hear other matters, while other Judges will hear pre-trials all day at 1/2 hour intervals, hearing up to 12 Pre-trials per day.

You should make every effort to attend your Pre-Trial Conference.  If you need to re-schedule your pre-trial date and your date is within 30 days, you MUST file a Motion and give all parties notice.  Generally, if you need to re-schedule your pre-trial date and the date is more than 30 days away, it is possible to re-schedule this date administratively.  Please check with your Assistant Judicial Case Manager or Sessions Clerk for any re-assignments.


Trials

If you receive a Trial Notice in the mail, you should make every effort to keep that assignment.  A Trial Date will only be re-scheduled by Motion.  You must file the motion and give proper notice to all parties to re-schedule a Trial Date.
