Q: dfcs dependency petition: can i file one motion with my gf or do we need to submit the same motion twice individually?

A: Unfortunately this is not the best forum to get step by step instructions on how to handle your own legal representation. If you want to file a couple of motions I would google those motions and see if you can find assistance. And you file a motion on your own behalf for relief you personally are seeking. Any other party needs to file a motion on their behalf and let the court know what relief they are seeking.
