Thank you for your patience.
Basically the ex parte hearing is to only decide temporary issues; not all issues regarding custody. Traditionally the court will set a future hearing to determine permanent custody, but sometimes based on oversight, they fail to do so. In that case, the parent can file a motion for child custody and visitation, requesting the permanent schedule they are interested in, along with a declaration supporting their request.
This requires forms FL 300 and FL 310
