Family Law Motions Calendar

Effective April 12, 2021, you may immediately reserve a spot on a calendar by going to https://superiorcourt.kingcounty.gov/famlaw/scheduling/calendar.  A "Notice of Court Date" form will be generated automatically when you complete the process. You are required to file this form with the Clerk's Office.

When choosing your hearing date:

  • You must pick a date that is at least 14 calendar days after the date you file the Notice of Hearing.
  • For Summary Judgment Motions, you must pick a date that is at least 28 calendar days after you file the Notice of Hearing. 
  • You must complete and file the List of Submitted Documents form

 

Ex Parte Calendar

Follow these steps when scheduling an Ex Parte hearing:

  1. Use the Calendar Availability tool to find the next available hearing date.  
  2. Complete the Notice of Court Date form for your desired location: Kent or Seattle. Indicate your selected hearing date
  3. E-file the Notice of Hearing. You may also submit in person at one of our locations.

Please visit the Ex Parte and Probate Department for additional instructions and procedural information for specific case types. If you are scheduling a hearing on the Emergency Motions calendar, you must confirm your hearing no later than 12:00 p.m.
