For Lucy: Good Morning: I am trying to get an ex parte order

Resolved Question:

For Lucy:
Good Morning:
I am trying to get an ex parte order because my soon to be ex-wife, has abandoned the marital residence which she has occupied on an exclusive basis since July, 2010. She has allowed the mortgage to go unpaid and it will be 3 months past due on November 2, 2013. She says she does not intend to return to the home. A relative of hers has changed the locks and given out keys to others all of home come and go into the home at will. They have refused to give me a key.
I have prepared my presentation from information I could gather on the internet. Am I correct that I only need a sworn affidavit and proposed order to request this ex parte order?
I am attaching my prepared order. Could you please go over it and see if there is anything you feel should possibly be changed, and if so, how?
I realize you are not my lawyer but would appreciate any guidance you can give me.

Hi,

I'm sorry, but the terms and conditions of the site prohibit me from reading a document that you intend to file and reviewing it or providing specific legal advice.

An ex parte motion would have a sworn affidavit and a proposed order attached, yes. You would also want to be prepared for the possibility that the judge may ask to see you immediately to hear your request and make a decision on the spot.
