Guide for participating in court proceeding via Zoom D18

-After joining the meeting and checking in with the clerk, please mute your audio when not speaking. This helps keep background noise to a minimum.

-Be mindful of background noise when your microphone is not muted.  Avoid activities that could create additional noise, such as shuffling papers.

-Position your camera properly if you choose to use a web camera. Be sure it is in a stable position and focused at eye level, if possible.  Make sure everything visible in the frame is appropriate for an appearance in court.

-If a confidential session becomes necessary it is incumbent on you to ensure you are able to participate from a private location so that unauthorized people cannot overhear or see the proceedings.

-Chat is enabled for the sharing of documents among participants and the court and to allow attorneys to communicate individually with each other or their clients only. No chat messages should be sent privately to the court as it would amount to an unauthorized ex parte communication. Neither should chat messages be sent to all participants unless directed by the court.

-The recording function has been disabled. Remember, the prohibition against recording court proceedings, even remote ones, remains.

-To assist the court reporter please state your name before each time you talk.

-Be patient.  Check in will take more time and the experience from those who have tried this before is that proceedings are a little slower generally.

***************************************************************************

If the tentative ruling is accepted, no appearance is necessary unless otherwise indicated.  You must notify the probate clerk at (707) 521-6893 if you wish to be heard in response to the tentative ruling.  Any interested party who wishes to be heard in opposition to a petition must notify all other parties of the intent to appear.  Both notifications must be completed no later than 4:00 p.m. on the court day immediately preceding the day of the hearing.

Unless notification to the probate clerk has been given as provided above, the tentative rulings shall become the rulings of the court at 3:15 p.m. on the day of the hearing.

Under Code of Civil Procedure, section 1277 subdivision (a)(4), the petitioner must serve the non-consenting parent and file the proof of service with the court. The court will call the matter to determine whether there are any objections based on the publication of the order to show cause so that no further publication is required in connection with the continued hearing date.
