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 up. 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 it is not a problem.
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. The fee petitions can be set on any date that is convenient for you and approved by the court coordinator.
