My question involves a child custody case from the State of: CA
I have a hearing soon and Child Support and Child Support Arrears are the issues.
My county no longer provides court reporting services. It wasn't such a problem in the past for child support hearings because the court would write up fairly detailed minutes summarizing what was ordered. It seems that they no longer write up a minute order, but just put a very condensed version into a case summary. I'm just not sure if everything ordered will end up in the summary.
Private reporters seem to have a minimum of about $300. I expect the baseline child support order will be very straight forward because there will be a dissomaster printout, but what about the addons? I suppose my concern is that there would be a disagreement about what was ordered at the hearing. Should I bother with a reporter?
