All motions, other than fee petitions and emergencies, are to be set on a day approved by the court coordinator or on a day that the case is already set. Please keep in mind, that the attorneys from the Public Guardian’s Office have certain days in court and certain days when they are not scheduled for court. If you are going to schedule a motion for a day on which the public guardian is not scheduled to be in court, please discuss it with the assigned OPG attorney to make sure he or she will be available on that date.
All motions, including emergency motions, must comply with the applicable Supreme Court and Cook County Circuit Court rules with regard to service and notice.
A courtesy copy of motions and petitions must be tendered to the court coordinator at least 3 days before the matter to be heard.
All petitions for fees: please note that ALL PARTIES OF RECORD must receive notice of your fee petition. It is preferable that fee petitions are set for days on which the case is already scheduled to be heard but can also be set for another date approved by the court coordinator.
