What is Initial Status Conference (ISC)?

The parties to a dissolution of marriage or legal separation action are required to attend an Initial Status Conference within 42 days of filing for dissolution of marriage or legal separation. Generally, all parties and their attorneys have to attend the ISC. The purpose of the ISC is to advise the parties on the case management and legal process and to identify any issues that the parties need to be resolved by the Court. In some jurisdictions, the court may enter interim orders. Every jurisdiction handles ISCs a little differently. Refer to the case management order for the specifics in your case.
