Court Hearings

It is important that you attend every court hearing in your case. If you have an emergency that prevents you from attending any hearing, you must call your attorney or the court as soon as possible.

Each court hearing and meeting has a different purpose. They are all described in this handbook, so that you will know what to expect and why it is important for you to attend. Consult with your attorney regarding any questions or concerns that you have about any hearings that you are be ing asked to attend.

Keep track of your court hearings below.
