You will receive a letter notifying you of your upcoming court date.
The court will need proof of your income and other factors to use to calculate how much child support should be paid.
Please bring ALL documents that apply from the following list:

  • File Paperwork - Carefully review, complete, file and serve the required paperwork (including any Responses or Answers) with the court before your hearing. Bring verification of income, medical insurance and proof of childcare costs (i.e. receipts).
  • Be On Time - Arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled court hearing. If you are running late, you must call the court or your case may move forward without your input or the hearing may be cancelled.
  • Prepare To Stay All Day - The court conducts many hearings. Be prepared to stay the entire day.
  • Arrange For Child Care - Children are not allowed in the courtroom and cannot be left unattended.
  • Be Respectful - You may have the opportunity to speak to the Child Support Commissioner to explain your situation. Direct your comments to the Commissioner only, not the other parent.
  • Dress To Impress - Dress nicely. Tank tops, shorts, sandals and hats are not allowed in the courtroom.
  • No one except you or your attorney may represent you in court.
  • Please note: The Commissioner will determine if a continuance should be granted. If you need to request a continuance, you must contact the court clerk the morning of your hearing.

  • Pre-hearing Meeting (Meet and Confer) – Prior to the hearing, both parents will meet with a department representative. If either parent is represented by an attorney, that attorney must be present. If both parents are able to reach an agreement during that meeting, then a court hearing may not be needed. A stipulation (or agreement) will be prepared for both parents to sign. Once the court approves the stipulation, the agreement becomes a valid court order.
  • Court Hearing - If the parents cannot reach an agreement, a child support Commissioner will decide. Please note that the department’s Child Support attorney does not represent either party. If one of the parents does not attend the hearing, a decision could be made without that person.
