Anthony Valadez vs Krystle Tapia

Case No: 1438875
Hearing Date: Tue Dec 17, 2013 10:30

Nature of Proceedings: Req. for Order: CC/Visit/FCS Mediation Order/PEACE Parenting Class Order

This is a RFO filed by father on 11/20/13 seeking child custody orders, visitation orders, FCS mediation orders and for PEACE parenting class orders. He declares that the 1-year old son was abandoned by his mother and has been living with him since; he needs this order to enter the Rehabilitation House on Cota Street with his son; mother is currently in Ventura; claims she has a criminal record and is mentally unstable; claims she uses a controlled substance. Family Court Services reports the mediation did not go forward because mother did not appear. There is no Proof of Service showing the RFO was ever “served” on mother. Ruling: If mother appears, the matter will be continued to 12/31/13 with mother’s response due on 12/24; if mother does not appear, father will need to file a Proof of Service showing who served mother and when, or alternatively, if he did not secure service on her, to have the RFO reissued and set a new date and secure service of the RFO on mother and file a Proof of Service so I can proceed.
