What is a recommended order?
A recommendation is prepared by the CO following a conference if no agreement for support was reached. The conference officer will write a summary of the facts of the case and recommend an appropriate support order (or other disposition) to the court. The assigned family court judge will review the summary and determine whether to approve what has been recommended. Copies of the summary and any order entered by the court will be mailed to the parties and any attorneys. Either party has 20 days from mailing of the recommended order to request a hearing before the Court.
