Form FL-320 "Responsive Declaration to Request for Order" - California

What Is Form FL-320?

Form FL-320, Responsive Declaration to Request for Order, is a formal statement completed by California residents who receive Form FL-300 with the court orders regarding their case. This is a response that concerns parent visitation, custody of children, child or spousal support, finances, and property, or legal expenses and fees. If you ignore the Request for Order and choose not to file Form FL-320, the court may take further action and decisions without consulting you, so understand what orders are requested and make up your mind about the proper reaction to them. However, you cannot request orders that were not listed in the paperwork sent to you - instead, you need to file your own original request to deal with other issues related to your case.

This document is provided by the California Superior Court. The latest version of the document was issued in July 2016 with all previous editions obsolete. You can download a fillable FL-320 Form through the link below.

  • Restraining orders or domestic violence orders;
  • Child custody and visitation;
  • Child support;
  • Spousal or partner support;
  • Property control;

Responsive Declaration to Request for Order Instructions

Form FL-320 instructions are as follows:

  1. Indicate your full name and contact details. If you are represented by an attorney, state their name.
  2. State the county where the Superior Court is situated, its address, and a branch name.
  3. Record the names of the petitioner, respondent, and other parent or party.
  4. Enter the date, time, and location of the trial and the case number.
  5. Specify your answer to the orders you have received. You can consent or object to them by checking the appropriate box. Use the space in the form to explain which order you want the court to make and why you disagree with the opinion of the other party.
  6. Certify information in the document is true and accurate, date, and sign the form.

You should support your declaration with documentation attached to the form - do not submit more than ten pages. Once the papers are ready, you need to serve them on the other party - not only the court but also your opponent has the right to know which steps you have taken. Notify the court about your declaration by presenting the paperwork to the court clerk. There is no need to pay filing fees unless you have not filed any other documentation in this case.

As for the opponent, it is possible to forward the documentation to the other party's attorney, or you can hire an assistant who will deliver the papers to the other party or mail the documentation to their known address. It is necessary to serve the other party the papers at least nine days before the proposed hearing. After that, submit the proof of service to the court - it will show them that the other party has received the declaration on time.
