Emergency Custody Orders for the Holiday Season

Everyone wants to spend time with their kids during the holidays, and this can cause visitation disagreements. One parent might have plane tickets for the kids and the other parent is being uncooperative. There are many scenarios that require Court intervention during the holiday season. Often, the disagreements arise shortly before the holiday and do not allow enough time for a motion to be filed and heard by the Court.

In these cases, it is necessary to have an attorney go into Court on an ex parte basis so that immediate orders may be given by the Court. If the Court finds that an emergency exists, the Judge will make immediate orders so that the situation is resolved in a timely manner. It is essential that an open line of communication exists with the opposing party so that these problems can be spotted prior to the visitation exchange. This will allow you to get into Court and get an immediate order from the Judge.
