When is the pro se dissolution (divorce) calendar?

The pro se dissolution calendar will be heard in chambers only on Mondays. You will not attend a live hearing. You will need to complete and file written testimony (form found on Snohomish County Website, link below) and submit your final documents (Findings and Conclusions about a Marriage [FL Divorce 231], Final Divorce Order/Legal Separation Order/Invalid Marriage Order [FL 241]) as working copies to the Commissioners Working Copies location in the courthouse, room 1300 at least 5 court days before the hearing date. All final orders must be completed (filled-in) and signed by the necessary parties. In cases with children, in addition to the written testimony and final orders referenced above, you will also need to submit the following completed orders: Parenting Plan [FL ALL Family 140], Residential Time Summary Report [FL Divorce 243], Child Support Order [FL All Family 130], Child Support Worksheets, Financial Declarations [FL ALL Family 131], and a copy of your parenting Seminar Certificate (if not previously filed). Cases with minor children also require a background check. Instructions regarding background checks can be found at JIS Background Checks | Snohomish County, WA - Official Website (snohomishcountywa.gov). Background check assistance is available in room 5-620 of the courthouse. Remember, background check requests must be submitted at least 5 court days before the hearing date. You will need to submit a new background check form even if you have previously submitted one. The form documents referenced above can be found at www.courts.wa.gov with the exception of the Written Testimony Forms which can be found under Domestic Relation Forms here: https://www.snohomishcountywa.gov/5523/Snohomish-County-Superior-Court-Forms.
