More often than not, you will have to schedule a hearing when you eFile any motion. Along with the Motion, you will be eFling a Notice of the hearing date, which will contain the hearing date, time, and location of the courtroom.
If you don’t know the judge assigned to your case, you can use the Case Lookup on the Will County Circuit Clerk’s website. You will be given the assigned courtroom number, which you can then use to figure out which judge is assigned.
Once you know the judge, you will need to check the Court Schedule. Court Schedule allows you to see what dates are open and available for your particular judge.

Then select your judge from the drop-down list of the Court Call. You will see that their courtroom location is also given.
Once you select the judge, the dates that are available pop up on the calendar. It is important to note that some of the judges have hearing times listed, others do not.
If your judge does not have a hearing time listed, scroll to the bottom of the calendar to view the current Administrative Assignment Order.
