What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California
A little bit of background: My divorce is almost finalized, we share joint physical and legal custody (currently I have 30% visitation) and I want to ask for a detailed parenting plan to be included with a step up plan to 40% to take effect when our son is 3 (he's 22mths right now). Her attorney prepared a judgment stipulation which included the word "Temporary" at the top of the custody portion, as my wife would not agree to a parenting plan being included, nor would she agreed to alternate the Christmas holiday as she feels that she should have it in perpetuity. I am not agreeing to sign this as I have no idea if the "Temporary" stipulation would mean anything. So, her attorney has now stated that if I do not sign it she will file for a status conference - and that in her experience - the judge will probably mark the order as "Temporary" anyway if we cannot come to agreement in the Status Conference. I don't know if that's true. What generally happens in a Status Conference? Will a judge make an order for mediation, or make an order to proceed to a Settlement Conference? I consulted with an attorney (this is Alameda, CA) and I was told that there is no way our judge will let this case go to trial and that what I am asking for is very reasonable. I am also fearful that she will try to move away, so I also want to ask the judge for a move away clause.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
