Division 60

Division 60 is a visiting judges division assigned to hear contested domestic, criminal and civil cases for the 16th Judicial Circuit. Visiting judges from the 4th Judicial Circuit rotate dockets every three to four weeks according to the following schedule: Monday- Friday, 9:00 AM and 1:30 PM; case management conferences are heard before trials and motion hearings when scheduled at the same time. Special settings must be approved by the judges and may be arranged through the clerk of the division. The Presiding Judge also may assign conflict cases to other visiting judges on an as needed basis. Division 60 is located in the empty offices and courtroom of the circuit judge assigned as family court administrative judge. From 1/1/2012 through 12/31/2014, Division 60 sits in empty Division 4, 5th Floor, 415 E. 12th Street, Kansas City, MO. Thereafter, the location of Division 60 will be determined by the Presiding Judge.

All correspondence and pleadings should be addressed to Division 60, 415 E. 12th Street, Kansas City, MO 64106.

Please Note - After the end of 2012, Division 60 will no longer hear contested track domestic cases and any such cases remaining on the docket will be transferred to various Sixteenth Circuit Judges for further hearing and disposition.  Division 60 will continue to be assigned conflict and other special cases from the Presiding Judge or Missouri Supreme Court where a determination has been made that the judges within the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit cannot hear the proceedings.
