The investigation may be initiated by: 1) a Decision or Order of the Magistrate, 2) an Order by the Judge or 3) an Agreed Entry between the parties. ENE may be initiated by: 1) an Entry Ordering Early Neutral Evaluation, 2) a Motion for Early Neutral Evaluation or 3) an Agreed Entry Early Neutral Evaluation.

A Brief Focused Investigation costing $400 will most likely be ordered in cases where all children involved are over 10 years of age. A Full Investigation costing $800 will most likely be ordered where one or all of the children involved are under 10 years of age. ENE costs $200.

In order to begin the investigation, the parties or their attorneys must deposit the appropriate fee with the Clerk of Courts in Room 3-47. A copy of the Entry Ordering Investigation (DR 2.5) and the completed Request For Services Form (DR 2.4) will be transferred by the courtroom staff to the Dispute Resolution Department in Room 3-001. A Social Worker/Counselor will investigate the case and make recommendations. All cases in which the allocation of parental rights and responsibilities are contested will be set for a pretrial conference before the assigned Judge. If after the pretrial conference, the case remains contested, the case will then be scheduled for a custody trial before the assigned Judge.

In order to begin ENE, the parties or their attorneys must schedule the ENE session and follow-up phone conference with the assigned Judge or Magistrate by going to the Docket Office in Room 3-46, at which time the ENE team (a Social Worker/Counselor and Magistrate) will be assigned to the case. The parties or their attorneys must also deposit the appropriate fee with the Clerk of Courts in Room 3-47.

Questions regarding this process may be directed to the Dispute Resolution Departmen at 946-9079.
