Based on recent results of the joint moments of proper delay times of open chaotic systems with ideal coupling, a new insight to obtain the partial delay times distribution, for an arbitrary number of channels and symmetry, is given. This distribution is completely verified for all symmetry classes by means of random matrix theory simulations of ballistic chaotic cavities. In addition, the normalization constant of the Laguerre ensemble is obtained.
