Julia is the youngest out of her siblings. Julia is intelligent and also caring. After the adoption of Victor, Julia and Joel are unsure how to parent him due to his behaviour. Eventually they decide to adopt him and the whole family joins them in the courthouse.

At the end of season 4, Julia quits her job to spend more time with her children. She finds this transition hard and bonds with a father from the childrens school, Ed, who lost his job and is now a stay at home father.

After a second she pulls away - saying that she is married. Soon she tells Joel. He  gets angry, asking her why he wasn't told immediately after it happened.
