1.                 SFL 60649, Hawley disso:


Pursuant to Civil Code §1657, an obligation which does not have a specific time requirement shall be completed within a reasonable time. The Court finds that a reasonable time has passed since Respondent became obligated to buy out Petitioner’s interest in the real property. Therefore, if Respondent does not buy out Petitioner’s interest or refinance the property to remove Petitioner from the mortgage, the property must be put on the market to sell within 90 days. Both parties are obligated to fully cooperate with all sale requirements.



2.                 SFL 60061, Langton/Corona:


This unopposed motion is granted. Assuming there will be no hearing requested, Petitioner is granted attorney fees of $487.50 ($325 x 1.5 hours). Petitioner is also awarded $1,000 in sanctions pursuant to Family Code §271 for unnecessarily delaying the division of the retirement accounts.


3.                 SFL 63059, Creager/Bailey:


Appearance required.


4.                 SFL 64040, Petersen:


This unopposed motion is granted. Counsel Bulloch is hereby relieved as counsel for Petitioner.
