I am preparing Objections to a Declaration, I am preparing it in the chart format indicated in CRC 3.1354 (b). Right next to it I am adding another column entitled Court Ruling. Do I need to prepare a whole separate document entitled Proposed Order and re-copy everything onto the Proposed Order, or is adding a column so that my Objection Chart has 3 columns ---- Material objected to, Grounds for Objection, and Court's ruling --- sufficient? At the bottom of my objections I will add a paragraph for the judge to sign, "the Court having considered the foregoing objections hereby rules as indicated on each of the objections...".
Basically, I am asking whether I need to prepare a separate document entitled "proposed order" in addition to my Objections, or whether it can be combined into one document.
You should prepare a separate order. So for the objections there are two two documents. The first is the objections and the second is the order with the extra column as directed by the rules of court. Although it may be like a speaking objection I also submit separate points and authorities in support of the objections. No one has complained about it yet.
If you find this answer helpful, please say so. This is a general response to a general question posted openly on-line. Answering this question does not create an attorney-client relationship or any obligation on the part of the attorney to take any action or respond further. There are often deadlines, time limits and procedures which must be followed to enforce legal rights or handle a case. The failure to take appropriate action as provided by law may lead to the loss of rights. If you would like to hire Mr. Bradley you will need to arrange a consultation and enter into a written fee agreement with him.
The Courts generally don't like to do the work necessary to prepare a proper order on objections. You should prepare both the objections and a separate order in the proper format.
Judges can, and do, decline to rule on objections if you don't have a separate order.
You need to do both a separate order and a separate objection documents with a column for the court to check off.
