Thank you for your question.

Parties without an attorney usually have to check with the Court Clerk to get a hearing date for a motion. Once the Clerk give you a date, you have to serve and file the motion with a proof of service showing it was served on the opposing party or opposing attorney. Motions are usually calendared a little over a month in advance to allow time for service by mail, see CCP § 1005 for the notice requirements.

I hope this information is helpful.

I guess my question relates more to motions vs 300fl for for expressing my grievances. I have been told that family court you can only file a fl300 change of order form that motions are harder to get. And that there is another procedure, such as request for motion w/affidavit for example. Any of this make sense? I know the process of filling a motion but I’m dealing with corrupt public offices how find it morally right to hide in the shadows.
