Video instructions and help with filling out and completing fl 115

Hi, I'm Cristin Lowe, and we are back on part 2 of, "How to file for your divorce", so we've already done the petition (which is form FL 100), taking you back to the homepage - back to "commonly used forms" and we're going to just march right on to the next form, which is the summons - FL 110. And this form scares a lot of people for a number of reasons, but the first thing you need to understand if it's extremely easy to fill out. It has a lot to content that I want to take the time on, but as far as filling it out - this should take you no more than 5 minutes. So let's start with the notice to respondent. Who is the respondent? The respondent is not you. You are the petitioner. So the respondent would be your spouse's name. So you are going to put your spouse's name - which in this case is Jane Smith. And yes, half of this is in Spanish, so it looks twice as long as it actually is. Alright, we're gonna go down to the next thing, which is, "petitioner's name is". And you are the petitioner, so in this case we have John Smith as the petitioner, so we're carrying over the same theme from our petition which is FL 100 and yes, the box says, "you have been sued", and that is a notice the respondent, or this case Jane. And yes, that sounds scary - it sounds like it's a horrible thing, but the reality is, is that a divorce, just like any other court case, is a lawsuit. This is not plaintiff/defendant. We're using specifically the terms petitioner/respondent because this is not a fault state. This is a no-fault state - it's very simple. Alright, so, the first page has information for mostly the respondent - in this case Jane, but it's also good for you to be able to read it. Essentially in a nutshell, what it says is, "the respondent (or Jane in this case) has days to file a response to the petition once it's been served on her". And if you have any questions, you can read it more fully, and they actually have a website where you can click on it and get more information. So we're gonna actually scroll down and get you to the part that you need to actually fill out, and we go back to the name and address of this court, and in this case, we're in Contra Costa County - so we have 751 Pine Street, or in this case, we're gonna start with Contra Costa County Superior Court. And the Family Law Center is 751 Pine Street, and that's in Martinez, California, and the zip code is 94553. And now name, address, telephone number of you. So you're not an attorney, but you are the petitioner without an attorney, so you're going to put your name - in this case it's John Smith - and the address is 124 Rose Street, San Ramon, California, 94582, and just like I said in the petition, you don't need to put your home address, but you do need to put a valid mailing address where the court can reach you. And the phone number in this case - we have 415.442.4477. So when you go to file this,...
