The Divorce Referee holds regular hearings Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 1:00 PM. To request a special hearing on a Monday or Friday, or to request an emergency hearing, contact the Divorce Referee’s office.
Before requesting a hearing date, check the Divorce Referee Calendar. The maximum number of hearings that can be scheduled per day varies. If there are 5 or more hearings already scheduled, request another date, or contact the Divorce Referee’s office to inquire about adding your hearing to the docket.
Successful hearing requests will appear on the Divorce Referee Calendar after processing.
You must provide a valid phone number and/or email address. Incorrect or incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
Before requesting a Divorce Referee hearing through these online forms, you must file your motion and pay the associated fees.
The Divorce Referee recommends that you file your Motion Pendente Lite online through the Shelby Courts' E-filing system. Filing electronically fastracks document approval and the scheduling process, and will increase your chances of locking-in your desired hearing date.
