Filling Out and Submitting an Order to Show Cause
Follow the instructions on this page and use the sample forms to fill out and submit an Order to Show Cause.
You must fill out the Order to Show Cause along with an Affidavit in Support.
If there is not already a pending or active case in court, you most likely will have to include a separate petition to start a case.
Once you are done, you can submit these forms through the court’s Electronic Document Delivery System (“EDDS”). For instructions on using EDDS, visit: https://familylegalcare.org/guide/edds-instructions/.
