What is a California Request for Order?
A Request for Order is a formal request made to the court asking that it enter an order for Child or Spousal Support, Custody and/or visitation. This method is used only when you already have an existing family law case, such as a Divorce, Legal Separation or Petition for Parental Rights. You can use this method to obtain a brand new order where one has not been made yet, or to request that a modification be made to an existing order.
Normally the process requires that paperwork be filed, a hearing obtained and the other party served with the paperwork. You may represent yourself at your hearing or if you choose, you may have an attorney represent you.
