May 26, 2020 - Women leaving abusive relationships often need family court orders quickly to protect their safety and that of their children, to have their children returned to them and/or to prevent abduction of their children by their abusive former partner. Emergency or ex parte motions are one way to get an order quickly, but bringing a successful one is difficult. This webinar provides basic legal information about emergency motions and how to prepare one.
