Establishing parentage is also used to secure benefits, such as social security, veteran's, and inheritance rights.
Dismissal of Family Law Case
Please Note: If you want to dismiss a domestic violence, or an elder or dependent adult abuse restraining order, you must schedule a hearing by filing a Request for Order.
Restraining Orders (Protective Order)
A restraining order (also called a “protective order”) is a court order that can protect someone from being physically or sexually abused, threatened, stalked, or harassed. The person getting the restraining order is called the “protected person.” The person the restraining order is against is the “restrained person.” Sometimes, restraining orders include other “protected persons” like family or household members of the protected person.
Request for Order (Motion)
The Request for Order form (FL-300) is used to request a hearing on most issues in a family law case, including: To get custody or visitation orders when none exists or to modify existing orders; To get child or spousal support orders when none exists or to modify existing orders; To set aside a default or a judgment or to ask the Court to reconsider its prior order; To change venue from Sacramento to another county; To ask the court for permission to amend your petition; or To request attorney fees and other costs.
Ex Parte Request for Order (Emergency / Temporary Orders)
In family law cases, court orders can be obtained only after the appropriate paperwork is filed, a hearing is scheduled, and notice of the hearing is served on the other party allowing him/her sufficient time to file a response. These hearings occur in open court in front of a judge. In limited situations, where there is an emergency, the judge may grant a Temporary Order to be in effect only until the hearing in open court. A Temporary Order is only issued when irreparable harm will result if an order is not made before the hearing.
