Please refer to the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit Website for the latest updates regarding COVID-19.  The Chief Judge issued Administrative Order No. 12.510, Mitigating Measures in Response to COVID-19.  Based on the Administrative Order, only essential in-person court proceedings are being held, such as domestic violence and all injunction hearings.  All non-essential in-person proceedings are suspended until further order of the Chief Judge.  These would include the suspension of the in-person UMC docket for Family and Probate as well as the ex parte Probate Docket.

All Agreed Orders and Proposed Orders shall be submitted and uploaded through the OLS system.  All Probate Division Orders and Checklists should be uploaded through the OLS system and each proposed order and checklist should be done separately.

 

Please note that if you have a trial or special set hearing, the J.A. will contact you approximately 1 week beforehand to either confirm the hearing (to be held by telephone or video) or reset the proceeding.

 

 

Effective May 1, 2020 all proposed Orders MUST be downloaded via the Circuit's OLS program.  All PROBATE orders will be forwarded to the Case Manager for review prior to the Judge reviewing.  All FAMILY orders will be reviewed by the Judicial Assistant prior to the Judge reviewing.
