What does a Non-Compliance Letter Mean?


Noncompliance Letters & Hearings 

A Case Schedule is issued when a case is filed. There are certain things the court expects you to file or schedule by the date on that case schedule. The Court will send a Noncompliance letter when an item is not in the court file by that date. The Court may also set a Noncompliance hearing for you to appear to see why it has not been filed or possible alternatives. If the missing item is filed or scheduled prior to the noncompliance hearing, the hearing may be cancelled and you will not need to appear. 

Please Note
A Noncompliance hearing is not the time to argue other matters or request some other relief. The other parties have received notice of the noncompliance hearing only and it is not fair (due process) for you to request something else at that time without notice to the other party.
