The first steps are identical to those for a challenged request: one of the parties shall draft a request for child custody, sign it, have it sworn in and serve a certified copy to the other party along with a subpoena. These documents shall be submitted to the Court Clerk along with proof of a subpoena served by a bailiff to the other party. Before the date of the hearing, one of the parties shall draft a consent statement, that is a document that states the terms of the custody and the alimony for child custody. Since the request is not attacked, the consent statement shall be signed by the other party. This document is submitted to the Judge (or the special Clerk) on the day of the hearing mentioned in the subpoena. The other documents that shall be filled out by both parties are the Annex 1 which determines the amount of alimony, and form 444, which sets the means of alimony collection. If all the above documents are ready, a decision can be reached on the day of the hearing.
