My question involves a marriage in the state of:California
Well, I have previously posted concerning the divorce issue of my mother, but nothing had occur since then. None of the parties (Mother and step-father) had petition for divorce. But it wasn't until today, that by chance, I logged in to the local court case status and typed her name. It indicated that my step-father had file for divorce just 3-4 ago. The court case status indicates the attorney for my step father will have a court schedule to ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE.
I did a little research about the ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE, but I don't really understand it. What is really hard to understand is why my mother hasn't been notify of such order, since the consequences might be devastating to us. If it wasn't but for the fact I logged in today, we would of never found out.
Is it require by to inform my mother of such order? Or is the attorney acting maliciously? If so, what can be done? It just seems strange that a determination concerning the future of my baby brother, attorney's fees, and all the rest can be taken without informing my mother.
One more question, will my mother be really require to pay my step fathers attorney fees?
According to the case status, my step father is seeking:
1.) Readiness OSC Child Support
2.) Readniess OSC Attorney Fees
3.) Readiness OSC Child Custody
4.) Readiness OSC Child Visit
5.) Readiness Ord to Show Cause
6.) Readiness OSC Spousal Support
Thanks a lot!
