Tentative Rulings

A tentative ruling is the proposed ruling of the court. Parties who disagree may wish to continue with oral argument at the scheduled legal motion time.

To confirm whether your department has a Microsoft Teams option available, please refer to the court’s Probate Hearings webpage. If your department displays an MS Teams link, then the MS Teams option is available.

Failure to appear shall be deemed a waiver of oral argument. If neither party appears at the scheduled hearing, the tentative ruling shall become the final order of the court on the date set for the hearing.

Tentative rulings are available online by 4:00 p.m. before the scheduled motion day.

You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print certain rulings. If you need to get the Acrobat Reader, visit the Adobe Website.
