For my divorce - can I schedule 1 hearing to address multiple issues (e.g. court order for my ex to cooperate in child custody mediation, court order for my ex to provide pension information, court order for my ex to move/pay bills/or sell the house)? Or do these need to be separate hearings for each item? Location: Los Angeles. Thank you!

Generally you should be able to consolidate motions into one hearing. However, your specific motions appear to include discovery, contempt, and temporary financial orders. Some courts hear discovery and/or contempt on special calendars. The only way to be sure is to check with your local court.
