Family Division motions are generally heard at 2:00 p.m. every Monday through Thursday and 10:00 a.m. on Fridays. Motions will not be heard at any other time.

If a motion is to be presented on a new case or a case in which no judge has been assigned or the assigned judge no longer sits in the Family Division, a judicial assignment should be obtained from the Department of Court Records Civil/Family Division. If a motion is presented as an emergency to a judge other than the one assigned to a case, a courtesy copy of the motion should be provided to the assigned judge.

Every motion must contain a notice of presentation and a certificate of service OR include the written consent of opposing counsel or the opposing party if unrepresented, that the notice of service requirement was waived. The notice of presentation and certificate of service shall appear on a separate page, immediately following the cover sheet. In addition, each motion shall include a proposed order of court, which should be affixed as the last page of the motion or petition. Seven (7) days’ notice of presentation of any motion is required absent an emergency or consent by the opposing party to a shorter notice period. Motions which have not been properly served on the other party or attorney will not be heard.
