Hearing eReminders

This is a courtesy service provided by the Minnesota Judcial Branch. Failure to receive a text or email reminder does not excuse failure to appear for court hearings.  

Parties in eligible case types in Minnesota District (Trial) Court can enroll to receive hearing eReminders via text or email which will remind you of the date, time, and location of your upcoming hearing.

You must be a party in the case to enroll in hearing eReminders. Witnesses, victims, attorneys, etc. are not parties in a case and are not eligible for eReminders.​

In most cases, two reminders will be sent: a reminder three days before the hearing and another one day before the hearing. Reminders are sent only one day before the hearing for Eviction cases and only three days before the hearing for Adoption cases.

This is an optional service provided by the Minnesota Judicial Branch as a courtesy to help you remember to appear for a scheduled hearing, but does not replace an official notice to appear. You should continue to follow instructions from the court for all required appearances. Even if you do not get a hearing reminder, you are still required to attend all of your hearings.

If you attempt to enroll in a case type not listed below, you will not receive reminders.
