You should get a copy, signed by the judge, in the mail in a couple of weeks.

Mine never showed up, despite a signed statement by the clerk that it had been sent to my address. So I'd recommend keeping an eye on the Register of Actions under Case Access at occourts.org

The order will show up there once the judge has signed it.

If you don't get the hard copy automatically you can order it from the website (will cost a few bucks but they do mail it out fairly quickly. You may need a hard copy of the order to transfer certain assets, especially IRA or 401(K).

Quick update.
I see the papers have been filled and status updated online for the county website.
Also see that my employer got the new support orders which puts a little more money in my pocket. After everything is said and done, about an extra $450-500 a month is being kept by me.
Feels good to be this far along.
Thanks all.

Paper work was resubmitted, and now site shows my case has moved from department 40 to 25.
Can't find any useful info on departments numbers.
Anyone wanna take a gander?

I think change of department = change of judge. Somewhere on your county's family court website )maybe in the Court Calendar area) you should be able to find some kind of cross-reference that tells you which judge is in which department. Or your lawyer should be able to tell you.

I think the changes are usually just to balance case loads, not necessarily anything to do with the specifics of your case.

I had my case bounce around a few court rooms/judges re: "MSC (status)"-- but once we reached the stipulated agreement, that both parties signed off on, the "new judge' just signed off on it.. Done deal. Hopefully that's where you are now.

And of course it was kicked back yet again due to "too many copes submitted"
OC resubmitted and sent a nasty letter to the courts so he says.
OC wanted movement on QDRO, my lawyer pushed back saying a final decree is priority. My lawyer also requested that I am able to remove STBX from health insurance since technically we have signed, but still waiting for judge.

Just saw on the website (2336) FINAL JUDGMENT FOR DISSOLUTION FILED.
A google search led me to this:

California Family Code Section 2336
2336. (a) No judgment of dissolution or of legal separation of the parties may be granted upon the default of one of the parties or upon a statement or finding of fact made by a referee; but the court shall, in addition to the statement or finding of the referee, require proof of the grounds alleged, and the proof, if not taken before the court, shall be by affidavit. In all cases where there are minor children of the parties, each affidavit or offer of proof shall include an estimate by the declarant or affiant of the monthly gross income of each party. If the declarant or affiant has no knowledge of the estimated monthly income of a party, the declarant or affiant shall state why he or she has no knowledge. In all cases where there is a community estate, each affidavit or offer of proof shall include an estimate of the value of the assets and the debts the declarant or affiant proposes to be distributed to each party, unless the declarant or affiant has filed, or concurrently files, a complete and accurate property declaration with the court.

(b) If the proof is by affidavit, the personal appearance of the affiant is required only when it appears to the court that any of the following circumstances exist:

(1) Reconciliation of the parties is reasonably possible.

(2) A proposed child custody order is not in the best interest of the child.

(3) A proposed child support order is less than a noncustodial parent is capable of paying.

(4) A personal appearance of a party or interested person would be in the best interests of justice.

(c) An affidavit submitted pursuant to this section shall contain a stipulation by the affiant that the affiant understands that proof will be by affidavit and that the affiant will not appear before the court unless so ordered by the court.



Any ideas on what I'm looking at?

*EDIT:
Also followed is a (NOTICE OF ENTRY OF JUDGMENT FILED )
I think I'm done?
