Q. I was told to prepare for a Traverse Hearing.

How do I do that?


There are no DIY forms for a Traverse Hearing. You will need to visit a Public Access Law Library and read the materials described in the attached handout. 

In the New York City Civil Court, Traverse Hearings follow 22 NYCRR 208.29:

Section 208.29 Traverse hearings.

Whenever the court has scheduled a hearing to determine whether process was served validly and timely upon a party, and where a process server will testify as to the service, the process server shall be required to bring to the hearing all records in the possession of the process server relating to the matter at issue. Where the process server is licensed, he or she also shall bring the license to the court.
