Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This is correct, an ex parte order is one that can be granted without the other party being present. The other party is given notice, which is short, and if they cannot make the hearing the TEMPORARY order is issued and then later another full hearing is scheduled. If you do not show up, a temporary order will be entered and then a hearing will be set for the order where you can appear with your attorney and witnesses and present your case for the court to consider removing the temporary injunction.
So you cannot file the motion to continue the ex parte, you have to wait for the hearing to be scheduled.
2) You must submit your tax returns, even though you had no income, and your husband's income is not considered, it is excluded from consideration for any support calculations.
3) You can get a blank subpoena from the clerk's office and fill it out and go to the clerk and have the clerk issue the new subpoena for the information you are seeking from the other party. You would have to get a disinterested party over 18 to serve the subpoena on the other party (or their attorney if the attorney has agreed to accept service).
4) You need to obtain a subpoena from the clerk's office for your daughter and have to serve it on your daughter's guardian if your daughter is a minor. Once served then they must appear unless the other party objects and then there would be a hearing on whether or not she needs to appear.
The subpoena for documents and for a witness are essentially the same subpoena form. The clerk of court's office is supposed to have blank subpoena documents.
