DeNovo Review

Appealing a Court Commissioner's Decision

This process requires a judge to review a decision that was made by a Circuit Court Commissioner because one of the parties disagrees with what the Circuit Court Commissioner decided.  Either party may request a DeNovo Hearing, but the request must be filed within 15 calendar days. See Local Rule 2.3 De Novo Review of Court Commissioner Decisions

Below you will find the Instructions and all the forms you will need to get from the beginning to the end of this court process.  You have the option to:

  • Print the forms in PDF or

Please keep in mind that not all forms are due at the same time. Review the Instructions (we recommend that you print it and keep it with your papers) to determine in what order to complete each form and other tasks required.

Hint: ONLY COMPLETE THE TASKS IN THE ORDER THEY ARE LISTED-Read ahead, but do not work ahead.
