Ex Parte Family Law Hearings

In California, there are times in custody matters where the parties cannot wait for a regularly calendared court date for an issue to be resolved. The facts and circumstances surrounding the disputed issue must be a true emergency. There are many circumstances that may warrant an ex parte hearing.

Family dynamics differ across the state. After parents split up and go their separate ways, each start rebuilding their lives. Sometimes one party may encounter life issues that affect the children, especially when the parties have shared custody. There are circumstances where one party may lose their home and have nowhere to go. This becomes problematic when that party does not want to agree to other temporary custody arrangements. It may then be necessary to file for an ex parte hearing.

If you are involved in a child custody matter in California and there are emergency circumstances where you need a temporary order it is not only in your best interests but in your child or children's best interests to contact a family law attorney. Speaking with a lawyer that has experience in ex parte matters will give you a better idea of what your options are and how to go about resolving the issue or issues you are facing.
