Basis for ex parte orders
Ex parte orders are an emergency remedy, and should only be sought when there is a serious need. Examples of serious need include:
- Domestic violence or abuse
- Kidnapping or intentional interference with custody orders
- Emergency injunctions
- Failure to abide by a contempt order
In all cases, an ex parte motion would need to be filed with the court. The opposing party is entitled to notice of such a motion, and could eventually request a hearing to determine whether the order should continue to remain in effect.
