The California appellate courts have recently issued three landmark family law decisions involving domestic violence. First, in Hogue v. Hogue (2017) 16 Cal.App.5th 833, the appellate court held that, if a person in another state commits an act of domestic violence against someone who is in California, then a family court in California has personal jurisdiction to issue a restraining order against the out-of- state person.
Second, in In re Marriage of Kumar (2017) 13 Cal.App.5th 1072, the appellate court held that family courts in California have subject matter jurisdiction to hear breach-of- contract claims to enforce the financial support obligations created by a federal immigration form known as an “I-864 Affidavit of Support.”
Third, in Priscila N. v. Leonardo G. (2017) 17 Cal.App.5th 267, the appellate court held that family courts have jurisdiction to renew domestic violence restraining orders initially issued by juvenile courts.
Honorable Judge Mark A. Juhas from the Superior Court of Los Angeles (Family Law Division) and the appellate counsel in these cases, Shuray Ghorishi, will discuss the factual and legal grounds for each decision, as well as best practices for attorneys that use these cases
