Except by order of the court, upon a showing of good cause, all ex parte applications presented to the court seeking to set a matter on shortened time must provide for opposition papers to be filed and served five court days and reply papers to be filed and served two court days prior to the hearing date. The court, in its discretion, may order a shorter time or that there be no reply; but in no event shall the last paper be filed later than 9:00 a.m. two court days before the hearing (court rules here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/cms/rules/index.cfm?title=three)

The documents required would be:
- A notice of hearing on the motion
- The motion itself
- A memorandum in support of the motion
These are all custom documents your attorney can prepare:
