Preliminary Hearings In Delaware

A Preliminary Hearing is a court hearing/process in the Court of Common Pleas. The purpose of the hearing is to determine if there is sufficient evidence against a person to make them answer to charges in the next higher court, typically Superior Court.

Get Immediate Help With Your Delaware Criminal Charges

It is extremely important to be represented by competent legal counsel at the Preliminary Hearing, as often times the charges can be dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge at this time. Once the charges are in Superior Court, they are assigned to a specific Deputy Attorney General and resolution of the offenses can be much more difficult.


The Delaware DUI law allows only 15 days from the time of your arrest to request a hearing with the Delaware DMV. If you do not request a hearing within 15 days, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended.
