CAN I FILE A EX-PARTE EMERGENCY CUSTODY FORM/ REQUEST WITH OUT A ATTORNEY?
Thank you for posting your question to JA/Pearl. Legal questions often take time for research or I may be offline so please be patient, I will reply.

You always have the right to represent yourself in court. That is usually not a good idea in any court but especially not in a custody situation. However, I have reviewed your previous question and such a motion would be appropriate in your case. Based on your situation the judge may not even hold a hearing but sign an order if you include one with your motion along with your sworn affidavit and the sheriff's report.

Here is an example of what I am talking about

Does she still live in the county that issued the current order or do the two of you now live in the same county?
