Sample and Exemplar Statements of Decision in California Dissolution and
Non-Marital Family Law Cases
We've just uploaded six new templates for
tentative rulings and sample statements of decision that you may find
extremely useful for setting up your case, whether you are an attorney or self-represented
party. They can be used as guides for what you need to prove to meet your
burden of proof in terms of evidence, and to defeat the other side's
efforts, on the topics they cover. They are subject, as always, to certain

These tentative ruling exemplars include contested child custody, move-away
contests, child support, spousal support, attorney fees, and the division

quid pro quo that we request for these efforts is that you take a moment and
support the Enlightened Divorce Blog™, and that you promise to have a safe and sane divorce or other family law
action! We do not seek donations of any kind, but do ask that you help
us in our efforts to spread the Internet of Everything Divorce.
Also, if you have a template that would be of use to others, lawyers or
not, email it to us and if it has quality we will upload it and give you
thanks and due recognition (and maybe even a backlink)!
