Effective today, amended Local Rule 5.3(a)(2) will require all Family Law ex parte applications and oppositions in all cases other than Restraining Orders to be presented for filing by 10 a.m. in all districts.
This modification eliminates the variation in the deadline among districts and eliminates the need for litigants to communicate with the Clerk of Court to determine a deadline for a specific district.
Among other impacts, the court may make emergency orders based on the documents submitted or may set a hearing before ruling on an ex parte application. The court will provide reasonable notice of such hearing to permit in-person or remote appearances.
