How is the other parent notified?

Once the case is filed, Family Court staff will attempt to contact the other parent by phone. Additionally, an appointment letter will be sent to the other parent. At the appointment, a final order may be signed if both you and the other parent agree on the terms of the order. If an agreement cannot be reached, a hearing may be scheduled before a judge.
