California no never married
Yes we have orders but I didn’t agree with the orders cause he never followed the orders
The orders are 50/50 shared between us but he never once picked up his son as stated in the orders so now we have to go to trial

Here are motion to modify forms and self help to do this.Iy gets filed in Superior Court where orders were already filed.

You will need to schedule the motion for hearing with the Court Clerk as well when you file by cover letter or do it in person.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again for your patience.Let me know if you have more followup.
