Legal procedure questions such as this may easily be misinterpreted without benefit of seeing the actual court papers and/or the court's docket information. Often specific language in the court papers calls for something other than the "standard" procedure. As such, I strongly recommend you consult with a local attorney to have your papers reviewed and explained. Perhaps you may only require a brief consultation, but do get specific advice. You can find attorneys in your area by searching among the profiles here on AVVO. Good luck!

You're a bit confused. If as you say the divorce has been finalized, then you are divorced and there should be no further hearings. If there are, the hearing is related to something else. There should be no trial date. Please consult with an attorney because your understanding of rhe procedure is not correct.

I agree with the other attorneys. You might be talking about a show cause hearing for contempt. That is when one of the parents goes into court and asks for a show cause hearing to be set up for the other parent to come to court and show cause why they should not be found in contempt. (or whatever the issue is). The rules for those hearings can be located in the specific county's local rules. Many of the counties have them on their website. The state court rules are on the Washington State Court Website. http://www.courts.wa.gov/
Forms and instructions can also be found on the this website. http://washingtonlawhelp.com/WA/index.cfm You should be able to find out information about your topic here. Good luck
