Can I and does it cost to appeal to a higher court when the California judge denies to honor my Indiana no contact order?

Indianapolis, IN |

I sent my Indiana protective order along with both a DV600 to register it in California, as well as a completed California DV packet. The judge denied both for insufficient information. I filed a reconsideration and in the hearing the Judge refused to adhere to the Indiana order because he though that it affected California's custody order over the child. I tried to inform him that that the Protective order only affected me, but because he saw our son's name on the Protective order he wasn't in the mood to hear anything else. The Indiana order specifically states that the "minor child" is not protected. Can I appeal to a higher court? Will they still charge the appellate rate for a DV appeal?

  1. This question would be better answered by a CA lawyer because there are some local court issues involved. I'll advise you seek the counsel of a local CA lawyer.
