Contact Information for Remote Hearing Submission

Please be aware that all Family Court hearings are being done live and in-person unless (1) the notice for the hearing clearly says that it will be a remote hearing or (2) a party to the case fills out Form 584 – Request to Participate Remotely and a Judge or Commissioner grants the request. Whether a request to participate remotely will be granted depends upon the type of hearing and the reasons why a person is requesting to participate remotely (for example, residing a long distance from the courthouse). Do not assume that your request will be granted.

If your notice for hearing states that the hearing will be remote, or your request to participate remotely has been granted, submit the form below to Family Court. You may also call (302) 255-0300 to provide this information. If calling, please press option 6 and have your case number ready. Your notice will tell you if your hearing is remote or in person.

Most Family Court Remote Hearings are performed using Zoom. If you will be joining a hearing with your cell phone, you will need to download the Zoom app. Additional information can be found on the Family Court Zoom Page.
