Transferring a Domestic Relations Case to Another Location


Pre-judgment matters may be transferred from a suburban district back to the Daley Center/Chicago upon the filing of the Respondent's appearance together with a District Transfer Form, pursuant to Domestic Relations General Order 98-D-2.  Such a transfer is not deemed an exercise of statutory rights for Substitution of Judge.

Cases may also be transferred to another district or county.  The parties must motion the court to transfer their case.   Transfers to another district Office in Cook County are free.  The fee for transferring a case out of Cook County is $65.00 plus $15.00 mailing fee and the cost of certified postage.
