Beginning a Dissolution/Legal Separation

The Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney provides all forms necessary to start a dissolution of marriage or a legal separation action in the State of California.  Participants are given line-by-line instructions and the forms are completed in the workshop.  The Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney explains how to file and serve the paperwork and at the conclusion of the workshop, she reviews the completed forms.

Request for Order (RFO)

The Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney provides all forms necessary to file the Request for Order (RFO).  The RFO is a method used to obtain a court date.  It can cover any pending issue in a family law case, i.e., child custody, visitation and support, spousal support, and distribution of property.  Participants are given line-by-line instructions and complete the forms in the workshop.  At the conclusion of the workshop, the Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney reviews the completed forms and explains to the class participants how to file and serve the documents. 

Default Judgment

The Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney provides all forms necessary to request default in a dissolution of marriage or legal separation case.  “Default” is the method used to obtain a judgment of dissolution or legal separation when the other party has not filed a response.   Participants are given line-by-line instructions and complete the forms in the workshop.  At the conclusion of the workshop, the Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney reviews the completed forms and explains to the class participants how to file and serve the documents.
