Hi, Tim Blankenship here with divorce661.com. In this video we’re talking about the trial setting conference, also known as a TSC. You would obtain a hearing of this sort by filing a request for trial setting.
If you wondered how you even get there and this is basically the 1st hearing. It’s known by a couple different names but usually trial setting conference is what it’s known by and it’s your 1st of all hearings you may go to when you’re entering the court system and what I want people to know is I get calls because sometimes our cases are not amicable and we have to send parties to court.
The 1st one is the trial setting conference and people say what’s going to happen at this trial setting, what orders will be made? So there aren’t any real orders made. It’s not like it’s a request for order where you’ve asked for a specific result. You’ve asked for child support or spouse support. This is just the courts 1st time having you guys appear and they’re basically just going to ask you what’s going on? What are the issues?
Where are you at in the case? And they will make orders not over property, children or money but they will make orders as far as what to do, what paper work to accomplish, and by when and then set a further court date to work on the progress. so don’t expect too much too happen at these hearings. If the court, I mean they could make orders as far as moving your case forward, but they’re not going to make orders as far as your divorce is concerned.
