Item Number: SP24-01

Submit Comment Online Comment by email

The Family and Juvenile Law Advisory Committee proposes approving 2 new forms, revising 20 forms, and revoking 3 forms related to child support. This action is necessary to implement changes to the Family Code made by Assembly Bill 207 (Stats. 2022, ch. 573) and Senate Bill 343 (Stats. 2023, ch. 213) to bring California into compliance with federal regulations requiring child support orders be based on evidence of actual income or, where actual income is unknown, the specific circumstances of the obligor parent. The proposed action is also necessary to implement changes made to the Family Code by Assembly Bill 2960 (Stats. 2022, ch. 420), which mandates that local child support agencies provide notice regarding payment of support to parents and the court when they begin and cease to provide child support enforcement services, and Assembly Bill 1148 (Stats. 2023, ch. 565), which increases the time period before child support resumes after an obligor parent has been released from incarceration or confinement

Civil Remote Proceedings: When a Judicial Officer May Preside Remotely (PDF, 294 KB)
Item Number: SP24-02

The Code of Civil Procedure requires the Judicial Council to adopt a rule that includes “standards for when a judicial officer, in limited situations and in the interest of justice, may preside over a remote court proceeding from a location other than a courtroom.” (Code Civ. Proc., § 367.10). The Trial Court Presiding Judges Advisory Committee recommends adoption of proposed rule 3.674 of the California Rules of Court to satisfy the statutory mandate.

The proposed rule applies only in civil cases subject to Code of Civil Procedure section 367.75. The rule therefore does not apply in criminal proceedings, juvenile justice proceedings, or proceedings in matters identified in Code of Civil Procedure section 367.76 (civil commitments and other specified proceedings). The rule also does not apply when a judicial officer presides in person over a remote proceeding.
