Divorce Referee Hearing Request
  • The Divorce Referee holds regular hearings Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 1:00 PM. To request a special hearing on a Monday or Friday, or to request an emergency hearing, contact the Divorce Referee’s office.

  • Before requesting a hearing date, check the Divorce Referee Calendar. The maximum number of hearings that can be scheduled per day varies. If there are 5 or more hearings already scheduled, request another date, or contact the Divorce Referee’s office to inquire about adding your hearing to the docket.

  • Successful hearing requests will appear on the Divorce Referee Calendar after processing.

  • You must provide a valid phone number and/or email address. Incorrect or incomplete submissions will not be accepted. 

  • Before requesting a Divorce Referee hearing through these online forms, you must file your motion and pay the associated fees.

  •  The Divorce Referee recommends that you file your Motion Pendente Lite online through the Shelby Courts' E-filing system. Filing electronically fastracks document approval and the scheduling process, and will increase your chances of locking-in your desired hearing date.

  • Fill out and submit a Hearing Request Form to schedule a hearing before the Divorce Referee. Click the link below for the Court that is handling your case.
