assuming that you already have an order for custody, and assuming that the order is based on Sacramento County, you would need Judicial Council Forms FL-300, FL-305, and FL-310. You would also need this local form. My suggestion would be to give notice of the hearing to the other side first thing on Monday morning (or sooner) and get into court on Tuesday morning.
Let me know if I may be of further assistance. Thank you.
That follow-up question is extremely broad. Is there a particular section in those forms that you are confused about?
That makes sense; thank you for the clarification.
You may put it under "other orders" on the FL-305.
Since you are going in "ex parte" (see the link provided in the first message), you need to make every effort possible to give them notice at least 24 hours in advance; it is also best if you can provide a copy of the filing 24 hours in advance as well. You can do this by telephone, email, fax, personal delivery---whatever it takes. "Ex parte" hearings basically suspend the other party's due process rights to reasonable notice and hearing because of an emergency situation, so the court expects you to do your part to minimize the damage of that as much as possible.
You may outline your declaratory facts under "facts in support" on the FL-310, yes. Ask for an immediate order, or in the alternative, the days to hearing to be shortened to (perhaps) Thursday or Friday.
