This packet will help you fill out and file the forms and papers you need to respond to a Motion for Temporary Family Law Orders or for Immediate Restraining Orders and Hearing Notice. Use this packet only where someone has already filed a Petition relating to parentage of a child.
This packet will help you fill out and file the forms and papers you need to finalize your parentage case. To use this packet, you must have already filed and served the other parties with Summons and Petition to Decide Parentage, or you must already have responded to the petition.
