Nuts and Bolts of SIJS in California Family Courts [01:30:45]

Pursuing SIJS findings in family courts is a newer practice area, but provides important protection for minors who are able to safely reside with one, but not both parents. These cases are typically brought as parentage actions, dissolution of marriage actions, or custody actions. This panel will address when to pursue a case in family court and will provide the nuts and bolts of filing a petition in California and the process for requesting SIJS findings in family court. It will include important recent developments, including new case law and a pending case at the California Supreme Court as well as new judicial council forms.
