Newly enacted Family Code § 3050 authorizes self-help remedies in Sacramento Family Court 
cases meeting a specific criteria.
The California Legislature last week authorized a unique, jurisdiction-specific set of self-help remedies in family court cases which meet a designated criteria. To meet the criteria, a family court case must originate in the State Capitol jurisdiction of Sacramento County

In addition, the parties to the case must consist of an unrepresented, indigent or financially disadvantaged litigant against an opposing party represented by a member of the Sacramento County Bar Association Family Law Section who also serves as a judge pro tem in the same court, or works at a law firm with a judge pro tem. The criteria also requires issuance of a "no contact" child custody order prohibiting the unrepresented litigant from all contact with the child or children of the parties.

Finally, the order must be inadequate and constructively unappealable due to the absence of facts, law or evidence justifying the ruling. If the criteria is met, self-help remedies are authorized under the new law, signed last week by Governor Brown and chaptered at Family Code § 3050. The legislation was proposed and enacted after an audit of Sacramento County Family Court cases revealed that SCBA Family Law Section divorce attorneys who also serve a temporary judges in the same court obtain for their clients favorable child custody rulings at a statistically impossible rate.

The audit showed that the no contact orders had no connection to the best interests of the child, the only lawful ground for the rulings, which are virtually unheard of in other jurisdictions. The new law is intended to level the playing field in cases meeting the statutory criteria, according to a legislative analysis of the bill.
