2016 Revisions to the California Family Code, Rules of Court,
and Judicial Council Forms!
Greetings All, and especially to our client base in Palm Desert, Indian
Wells, La Quinta, Palm Springs, and beyond - this has been the longest
stretch of time where we've not added new content to our website,
but Michael Peterson and I just hit the wall, plus free time has been
at a premium. We thank all of you who continue to email us, call, and
generally ask questions and give feedback because, truth be told, it helps
to keep us engaged with the monstrous task of maintaining this site while
navigating our day jobs. Please do support us, if you find this site useful,
including through social media. Our goal is to support you too (and to
rant and complain here and there), and a Facebook "like" from
you goes a long way. Unless you don't want to reinforce us 'cause
we're nuts? (LOL).
I wanted to let you know that after this needed interregnum I believe we

Family Law Statutes page to reflect the 2016 new laws and revisions to existing statutes and court
rules so that you have a reliable place to find them. Of particular interest
are changes to: Family Code sections
2110, and (new section)
3012. I'll be back soon to add a couple of the important new rules of court
that affect how family law cases can best be litigated.
In the next few weeks we'll give some commentary on what has been (fortunately?)
a mostly bleak legislative and family law commission season of new and
improved California divorce and family law rules.
We've also, for the first time in some years, begun to update the
Judicial Council Family Law Forms page on our site to include all those that a family law litigant may need to
access in order to manage and present their case in the most effective
and professional manner.
Anyway, while all this effort can be exhausting, I think "we're
Cheers and more to come!
