Download: California Stipulation and Orders Instructions and Template

You and your spouse may want to file "stipulation orders" if you have agreed to temporary orders before the date of a California divorce court hearing.

Why file stipulation orders in divorce?

There are good reasons to resolve or at least set ground rules around imminent issues before the hearing date, including saving time and expense and allowing more time to thoughtfully draft the agreed-upon orders. The court must approve the orders and will file them.

Common issues that Stipulation & Orders can help with:

  • Child custody
  • Changing co-parenting schedules
  • Changing child support payments
