This page is dedicated to Domestic Relations information. The goal is to provide a useful and accessible resource for court related information. The downloadable forms are arranged for easier review and retrieval. (Every effort is made to keep the links on this website current. If you find a bad link let us know.)
 
ATTENTION: With E-Filing,  adherence to certain work flows will improve the process  of completing uncontested divorces. When there are children, the final envelope should include for simultaneous entry by the Court, the Final Decree, the Parenting Plan, the Child Support Worksheet, the Child Support Addendum, and the disposition form. The Final Decree should indicate that the Parenting Plan, Worksheet and Addendum are incorporated and made a part of the Decree by reference. When presented in this manner, no signature line for the Judge is needed on the Addendum and Parenting Plan.

Information about the Domestic Relations Pre-trial Order Form

This form is different from the general civil pre-trial order form. It is required in all contested domestic cases and the parties must submit a proposed consolidated domestic relations pre-trial order prior to the scheduling of any final hearing.

When one party fails to cooperate with the consolidated proposal or the parties can't agree on the consolidation, a conference with the judge should be scheduled pursuant to U.S.C.R 7.1.
