The original Family Law Affidavit and required documentation must be presented to the Hearing Officer at the start of the Hearing Officer Conference. The Family Law Affidavit is not required to be filed into the record unless a party objects to a Hearing Officer’s written recommendation.

Any objecting party shall provide a copy of their written objection to all other parties when it is filed with the Clerk of Court. All other parties have five days from the date they are provided a copy of the objection, to file with the Clerk of Court their original court ordered Family Law Affidavit and documentation presented at the Hearing Officer Conference.
