Family Law: New policy on rescheduling Settlement Conference

From:  Hon. Ruth Ann Jakubowski

Date:  March 24, 2016

Effective April 1, 2016, all Settlement Court conferences that need to be rescheduled following a postponement must be done within five days of counsel receiving notification from Settlement Court of new possible dates. It is the responsibility of counsel that requested the postponement to contact opposing counsel and agree upon a new date and notify Settlement Court. Failure to notify the Settlement Court of the new agreed date within five days will result in a new settlement date being automatically set.
