    The Orange County Family Law Courts have instituted a new policy of setting Status Conferences in ALL cases! What is a Status Conference?
    The Judges would like to have fewer cases on their docket and be able to show that they are getting cases heard and handled. So they decided to drag everyone down to court for a “Status Conference” so the Judge can find out why the case is still pending, what types of issues are holding it up (outstanding discovery etc.) and why hasn’t someone filed a request for trial (At Issue Memorandum). I saw someone appear on one last week. The attorneys were annoyed that after their full Trial on the matter last month, that they had to come down to court to appear at this thing. Everyone blames lawyers for the high cost of litigation, but sometimes it is the court.
