I am going to do an ex-parte order and am just subbing out

This answer was rated:

I am going to do an ex-parte order and am just subbing out my attorney. I need to know how to notify his attorney of this emergency action. This a part of a divorce in the Superior Court of Loas Angeles at the Van Nuys court house, northwest district.
Your current attorney is correct, for the ex parte emergency hearing, a fax notice to opposing counsel is fine as this is an emergency hearing and "ex parte" means without the other party present.

And this can just be in a letter form correct? I don't have to fax her all the stuff I'm bringing with me to court. I can give her that stuff on the morning of court correct?


 


 

Right, it is just notice that you are going to court for the ex parte emergency hearing. The court will hear or decide on the ex parte motion you bring, but then will set a hearing typically within 10-30 days of your ex parte motion and the opposing counsel will get notice and copies of everything for that hearing if she does not show up on the time of the ex parte hearing. Remember, ex parte hearing means typically the other counsel is not there.
