    Sec. 9. Judicial hearings.
    (a) Upon receipt of any recommended order to which both parties agree, the court shall review the Administrative Hearing Officer's recommendations. The court may enter an order consistent with these recommendations, may refer the matter to the Administrative Hearing Officer for further proceedings, or may hold such additional hearing as it deems necessary.
    (b) Upon receipt of a statement from the Administrative Hearing Officer indicating that the parties do not agree to the Administrative Hearing Officer's recommended order, or any part thereof, the court shall conduct a judicial hearing on those matters to which the parties do not agree and enter such orders following the hearing as it deems appropriate.
    (c) A copy of all court orders shall be mailed to the parties within 5 days of entry, unless the parties were present in court at the time the order was entered, in which case the parties shall be given a copy of the order in open court. The specially certified copy of the order for withholding, if any, shall be mailed only to the Obligee or his or her attorney, and not the Obligor.
