Ex Parte Emergency Hearings

In California, an ex parte application consists of a request of a court to make an emergency order in the event that harm may come to someone in a family.

Typically, one kind of emergency would involve either a child custody matter or the prospect of domestic violence, spousal abuse or child abuse. The court could also step in for situations of child relocation or removal, or if a child was in imminent physical danger.
