In an earlier article I discussed how Stanislaus County Superior Court is handling child custody matters. Recently the Court began attaching a letter of instructions to custody orders when there is a further child custody mediation scheduled. [A sample of such an order appears in this post; click it to see an enlarged version.] As you will see, the Court has this as a separate page to the earlier custody order, as “ADDITIONAL FINDINGS AND ORDERS.”
This also is an excellent summary of the Court’s instructions relating to mediation procedures in general.
