The office and courtroom called Judge in Chambers (JIC) handles a wide variety of emergency and short-term cases and hearings, as well as many other administrative matters. The issues addressed in JIC come from every division of the Superior Court, and typically require expedited judicial decision-making. In some instances, Applicants/Parties may be required to attend a hearing before a judge in JIC. This hearing will rarely be on the same day that an Applicant/Party first comes to the Superior Court.
Below you will find additional information for the most common matters processed in JIC, as well as applications and forms that can be printed and/or completed online.
