(SIGNATURE OF PERSON WHO SERVED RESPONSE)
This case may be referred to a court commissioner for hearing. By law, court commissioners do not have the authority to issue final orders and judgments in contested cases unless they are acting as temporary judges. The court commissioner in your case will act as a temporary judge unless, before the hearing, you or any other party object to the commissioner acting as a temporary judge. The court commissioner may still hear your case to make findings and recommendations to a judge. However, if you object to the commissioner acting as a temporary judge, an order will not be made until a judge reviews your case.

INFORMATION SHEET FOR RESPONSE TO UNIFORM SUPPORT PETITION
(Do NOT deliver this Information Sheet to the court clerk.) Please follow these instructions to complete the Response to Uniform Support Petition (form FL-520) if you do not have an attorney to represent you. Your attorney, if you have one, should complete this form. You must file the completed response and attachments with the court clerk within 30 days of the date you received the Uniform Support Petition (form FL-500). The address of the court clerk is the same as the one shown for the superior court on the summons. You may have to pay a filing fee. If you cannot afford to pay the filing fee, contact the court clerk. Keep two copies of the filed response form and its attachments. Serve one copy on the petitioner or petitioner's attorney and/or the local child support agency and keep the other copy for your records. (See Information Sheet for Service of Process, form FL-611.) INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE RESPONSE FORM (TYPE OR PRINT FORM IN INK): Front page, first box, top of form, left side: Print your name, address, and telephone number in this box if it is not already there. Item 1: If you are responding to a question of paternity, check the "parentage" box. a. For each child listed on the response form, you must check the "yes" box if you agree that you are that child's parent or check the "no" box if you do not think or you are not sure whether you are that child's parent. You must write in the name of each child listed in the Uniform Support Petition if your response form does not include the names of any children. b. If you and the other parent have signed a voluntary declaration of paternity you should attach it to this form and check this box. Item 2: You must request a genetic test to determine if you are the parent if you have checked a "no" box in answer to number 1 above. If the local child support agency filed the Uniform Support Petition, the local child support agency will tell you when and where to go for the test. The local child support agency's office will pay for the cost of the test now. If the court decides that you are the parent, you may have to repay this cost to the local child support agency. Item 3: a. Check this box if you agree to pay the support asked for in the Uniform Support Petition that you received. b. If you disagree with the support asked for in the Uniform Support Petition, you should check this box. If you have documents that prove your reasons for disagreeing with the request in the Uniform Support Petition, you should attach documents to this form. Item 4: a. Check this box if you agree to the other orders requested in the Uniform Support Petition that you received. b. If you disagree with the orders requested in the Uniform Support Petition, you should check this box. Item 5: Check this box if you want a court hearing. The petitioner or the local child support agency may also schedule a hearing whether or not you have checked this box. Item 6: You must list your address and phone numbers where you can receive all notices and court dates. You must let the court know whenever your address changes. You may not receive important notices that affect you if the court does not have your current address. You must date the response form, print your name, and sign the form under a penalty of perjury. When you sign the response form, you are stating that the information you have provided is true and correct. Instructions for how to complete the Proof of Service section of the response form are in the Information Sheet for Service of Process (form FL-611). The person who serves the response and its attachments must fill out this section of the form. You cannot serve your own response. If you need assistance with this form, contact an attorney or the family law facilitator in your county.
