A: In the context of a court case in California, "CIS" typically refers to a Court Information System, which is the electronic system used for managing court cases and related data. An "add on CIS request" likely indicates a request to add or update information in the Court Information System regarding your husband's case. This could be related to administrative details, such as a change in courtroom or scheduling, or other case-related information. It's not uncommon for court cases to experience logistical changes, and these are usually tracked within the court's electronic system.

To understand the specific implications of this update for your husband's case, it would be advisable to contact the court directly or discuss it with your attorney. They can provide more detailed information based on the context of the case and the specific nature of the request. Remember, keeping informed and consulting with legal counsel are key steps in navigating the legal process effectively.
