Status conferences are for the judge to find out what is going on with your case. In other words, you report to the judge your “status.” The judge will make orders based on where you are in the process. For example, you could request a hearing on the bifurcated issue of status only dissolution. Or you can ask for an MSC or mediation. Not much gets done at status conferences other than to set future deadlines and hearings.
Best of luck to you.
