Preparing & Filing the Forms


You may complete the forms by neatly printing the information in blue or black ink. Be sure to use the same title and number of the case if you are requesting an Order to Show Cause for an active Yolo County case. Make three copies of the completed forms—one for you, one for other party, and one for Yolo County Family Services if that agency is involved.




You will need to take the completed forms to Room 103 of the Courthouse to be filed. The clerk will examine the documents to determine if they have been completed correctly and will file stamp your original and copies. The original will be retained by the court and the copies returned to you. The other party will need to be served one of the copies. There is a fee for filing the forms unless you have received a waiver of court fees.
