Uncontested divorces are heard from 8:30 am to 9 am. Docket is called at 9 am. Docket call in this court is rarely, if ever, late.  Mediation is required before all temporary orders hearing and also before final trial. For temporary orders parties are given 45 minutes to present their case.  This court brings cases to trial within 5 months. Hearings in this court are usually given with at least 8 days notice.
