Hello and thank you for requesting me.
Remember, you do not have to file ex-parte
. So it is your decision.
How an ex-parte works:
1) you file
2) the court hears your ex-parte request on the same date
3) it may grant it
4) the other party is served with the motions and an order (if granted)
5) the other party must abide by that order until a follow up hearing for temporary orders
wherein the court may decide to drop/modify/continue the matter granted in the ex-parte once the other party has had a chance to respond and argue their side.It is not the norm
for the Court to grant an ex-parte drug test. Ex-parte orders are generally meant for emergency custody and restraining orders
Someone cannot "cleanse" their body in the 2-3 weeks between an order for a drug test and the time they have to do it - the hair follicle can keep a record of narcotics for months.
Ergo, someone in your situation may simply wish to not request a drug test in the ex-parte, but until the next hearing (STEP 5, above) to do so.IMPORTANT INFO
