Hello,


Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.

 


Your friend will need to file a petition for support.


She can download the forms at the California Self Help Center. Here is the site: http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp/family/


I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.


Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
