Appellant Annemarie Schilders appealed several orders made by the family court about a year after the entry of a stipulated judgment of dissolution of her marriage to respondent Steven Stupp. Schilders challenges orders giving Stupp temporary sole legal custody of the parties’ child, requiring that only the parents transport the child to his therapy appointments, continuing a custody trial, requiring Schilders to undergo a vocational evaluation, and reserving jurisdiction over the allocation of the cost of the evaluation. In the published portion of this opinion, the California Court of Appeal concluded that the family court abused its discretion in ordering the vocational evaluation when there was no support motion pending, and reversed that order. Consequently, the Court did need not reach the issue of allocating the evaluation’s cost. The California Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal as to the remaining orders because they are not appealable.
