Pretrial Statements in Family Law Matters

Pretrial statements are required for the final trial of all family law matters, whether tried to the court or to a jury.  The provisions for Pretrial Statements included in this website are generally applicable for final hearings on divorce, modification, SAPCR, and other trial matters.  Attorneys and parties should adapt the Pretrial Statement to fit the circumstances of the case.

The Pretrial Statement is required of attorneys and self-represented parties.  Pretrial Statements shall be filed with the District Clerk at least three business days before the trial setting date and a courtesy copy delivered to arrive in the Court's chambers on the filing date, by either email, fax or first class mail.
