The Hearing

Arrive early.  Do not forget to bring copies of all papers in your case including:  Your copy of the filed Proof of Service, and any supporting documents such as pay stubs for the last three months, tax returns for the previous year, child care receipts and anything else that will help prove the information in your Income and Expense Declaration.  When you arrive at the courtroom, you must check to make sure that your name is on the calendar for that day and time.  If you are not listed, show your papers to the bailiff inside the courtroom.  After the hearing you must prepare and file a document which states what the court orders.  You may use a Findings and Order After Hearing and/or an Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support, as appropriate.  They need to be delivered to the filing clerk in Room 103 of the Courthouse.
