What is a court number?

On a divorce decree form, what is a court number? Is that code for the room number the case will be heard in? I already have the cause number.

I am assuming that you are doing this divorce yourself, correct?  It is my understanding that the court clerk will fill in the Court Number when you file the form (along with the Cause number if you do not already have one).  Did you yet file the form?  Then if it is missing go back to the court.  If you have yet to file then just make sure it is filled in when you do file it.  Good luck.
