Rancho Santa Margarita, CA asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law and Divorce for California

Q: Who pays for the Change of Venue of a divorce case in California?

My ex wife's lawyer sent me a stipulation for a change of venue for our divorce case ( divorced since 3 years now ) from L.A. County to O.C.

In the document she states that both parts shall pay the cost associates to the change. Is this request correct or my ex wife should pay all the cost associates to this request of change of venue ?

Thanks

A: It’s a stipulation. You can choose to agree or disagree. It’s your choice.

A: cross out the line about who pays--if your wife has been supporting you. Then sign. If you are supporting yourself, just sign it.
