He's old enough that the Court will look at his preferences, either through a professional or, if he wants, through addressing the Court directly. (See Family Court section 3042.) The Court is not bound by his preference, but given his...Read more »
It depends whether the judge said at the hearing that the order is "effective forthwith". If so, it doesn't matter when the written order is filed or served. If the judge was silent on this issue, the order is effective upon service of the Order.
It's possible part of your question was inadvertently left off. An attorney would need additional information about the scope of the matter and state laws you mention on which you are contemplating an appeal. You could try reposting.

The way to get around this,...Read more »
