Established Child support and custody before submitting Divorce Petition

#1

DO we still file Child custody and Child Support if it was already established before divorce petition was filed or We can just write the case #?

It sounds like you may have established orders through a Department of Child Support Services case. If that is correct, you would file a separate divorce action.

Custody and support should be addressed in your judgment, but you can request that the orders issued in your DV case be maintained.

Cristin, I am submitting my Default judgement for divorce. SInce I file FL-105 with the Court when spouse was served with the Dissolution initial documents . DO I still need to fill out another FL-105 or I can just submit the photocopy of that?.

You will need to file FL-170 and answer the questions related to custody on page 2. Basically, IF the residency information has changed since the filing of the divorce, you will need to update and submit a new FL-105. If the residency information has not changed, you do not need a new one.
