Good afternoon, Peter.
I'm doing well, thanks. I hope you are, too.
1. The way to remove a declaration is to file a Motion to Strike. A Motion to Quash is typically filed in response to a subpoena or summons - when you're objecting to the service of the document, not the contents of a document themselves. The motion itself has two parts - one is the Notice of Motion, and the other is a Memorandum of Points and Authorities in support of the motion. Here is a sample that might help you format your request.
The motion is filed with the court, and a copy mailed to the other party, along with the Proof of Service.
2. The other party gets to reply to your motion. If they file an objection, then the judge will decide whether he wants to have you come in and make arguments in person. Usually, at least one party has to request a hearing before the judge will schedule one. But he does have discretion to decide not to hold a hearing if he can make a decision based on the information provided in the motions.
