INFORMATION SHEET FOR REQUEST FOR HEARING REGARDING
REGISTRATION OF CALIFORNIA SUPPORT ORDER
(Do NOT deliver this Information Sheet to the court clerk.)
Please follow these instructions to complete the Request for Hearing Regarding Registration of California Support Order (form FL-445)
if you do not have a lawyer representing you. Your lawyer, if you have one, should complete this form. You can get free help with this
form from the
family law facilitator
in your county.
This form should be used if you received a notice of registration telling you that a California support order is being registered
in a California court but you do not want that support order registered. To request a hearing regarding the registration of an
out-of-state support order, use
form
FL-575. To request a hearing regarding the registration of an International Hague
Convention support order, use
form
FL-594.
You must file your completed request for hearing with the court clerk. The address of the court clerk is the same as the one shown for
the superior court on the notice of registration you received. You may have to pay a filing fee to request a hearing. If you cannot afford
to pay the filing fee, you must file a Request to Waive Court Fees
(form
FW-001). You can get this form from the court clerk, the
California Courts website at www.courts.ca.gov, or the
family law facilitator
in your county (who can also assist you with the
application). Provide an original Request for Hearing Regarding Registration of California Support Order and any attachments plus at
least three copies for filing. Keep copies of the filed request and any attachments for service, and keep the other copy for your
records.
Someone other than you, who is at least 18 years old, must serve (deliver) copies of the request on the other parent, or their lawyer if
they have one in this case. A copy must also be served on the local child support agency, if that office is providing services in the
case. The paperwork must be served at least 15 days before the hearing date. (Note: If the paperwork is served by mail, there are
special rules regarding this service deadline.) Be sure to file your Proof of Service with the court clerk. More information about how to
serve legal paperwork can be found on the California Courts website at
www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-serving.htm
or from the
family law
facilitator
in your county.
