The tentative ruling shall become the ruling of the court unless a party desiring to be heard so advises the judicial assistant of the department hearing the matter no later than 4:30 p.m. on the court day preceding the hearing, and further advises that such party has notified the other side of its intention to appear and argue.
Pre-grants and probate examination notes are available on new probate petitions, spousal property petitions, final distribution petitions and other selected probate matters. To access the notes/intended rulings, please click on the department above where the case is set. The examining notes will be displayed below any tentative rulings. If your case is not included in the notes/rulings, you will need to appear. If you are satisfied with the intended ruling, your appearance at the hearing is not required. If there is a deficiency in the pleadings, you will need to appear at the hearing. If you need time to correct the error or submit additional documentation in support of your petition, please notify the judicial assistant for that department no later than 4:30 p.m. on court day preceding the hearing.
