In times of crisis, women fleeing abusive situations often require immediate family court orders to ensure the safety of themselves and their children. One way to do this is by filing an emergency motion, also known as an “ex parte” motion.
Luke’s Place Staff Lawyer Min Jin and Legal Services Program Manager Phebe Quaye, in partnership with CLEO provided a webinar on emergency motions in family law. A recording of this webinar and accompanying resource documents are now available online.
- explains emergency motions, including what they are and how long they last
- the process for getting an emergency order, including evidentiary requirements
- how to effectively support your clients during this challenging process
