Notice of Motion and Motion to Change/Order to Show Cause and Affidavit
If the parties are not able to agree on a modification of Support, Maintenance, Custody and/or Placement, either party can opt to file Notice of Motion and Motion to Change or Order to Show Cause and Affidavit. By filing this document with the court, a court hearing will be scheduled before a Family Court Commissioner and the parties can present their case for the modification.
If a party is in violation or is not complying with a court order, the following form may be used. This form may be used to order another party to come to court to justify why that person should not be found in remedial contempt of court for past violations of a current order.
