Scheduling Hearings and Zoom information

UMC and Special Set hearings (15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes) are scheduled by the parties through the Online Scheduling System in Online Services (OLS):

  • For UMC, please include the zoom link information in place of the courthouse address/courtroom number on your notices for UMC.
  • For Special Set (15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes), an Order will be auto-generated which will include the Zoom information for you to submit to the Judge upon selecting a date in OLS.
  • New Special Set dates for 15, 30, 45, and 60 minute hearings are uploaded onto OLS on the first working day of every month. When trying to coordinate a date, please keep in mind that the dates uploaded on the first working day of the month are typically hearing dates for the following month. (For example, dates uploaded on November 1 are hearing dates/times in December) The Court also adds additional time throughout the month as available and reopens dates/times as agreed orders are signed on previously scheduled hearings. If no dates are available online, parties should continue checking for reopened dates and/or check back on the first working day of the following month. Any and all available dates/times are posted on and must be scheduled through OLS.
  • Please review the Divisional Instructions for more detailed information.
