I've previously seen but cannot now find the document to serve opposing counsel in advance of trial to have them provide their witness list and intended evidence, what is it called? The judge will ask that it it be provided 10 days in advance but I saw with the filing I could get it potentially 10 days earlier.
The date for exchange of witness lists and exhibit lists is set by the judge in one of the case management conferences prior to the final status conference. In the meantime you can send interrogatories or other discovery to the opposing party. I know of no California Judicial Counsel form that you appear to be referring to .
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.

It may depend on whether your case is limited or unlimited, jury or bench trial and the procedures followed by your specific department. If there is a Final Status Conference, the parties are generally required to submit their joint trial documents to the court at least 5 court days before. Some courts ask for 10, some 15, and if there are motions in limine, those must be filed at least 16 court days before the FSC.
There is a form for limited cases (you can get it at the court website), but not one for unlimited.
If this is a limited civil case, you might be referring to Request for Statement of Witnesses and Evidence. Here is a link to the form: http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/disc015.pdf.
You'll need to refer to Section 96 of the Code of Civil Procedure to see if you still have time to serve this form.
First, the firm is a debt relief agency according to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We help people file for bankruptcy. We also do other stuff and we do it well, but Congress wants me to post this notice. Second, nothing on this site is legal advice. You are not my client unless you enter into a written agreement signed by you and me.
