LOS ANGELES COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT FAMILY LAW EX PARTE FILING UPDATE

FAMILY LAW EX PARTE FILING UPDATE


Effective April 15, 2020, the Family Law Division of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County will implement the use of Resource Account email addresses while the Court is closed, except for essential functions. A Resource Account permits litigants to file ex parte applications and oppositions by email and to pay required fees if any. Listed below are the Resource Accounts assigned to the districts in which the Family Law Division has court operations.


Accordingly, parties and counsel do not need to appear to present ex parte applications and oppositions. Persons may attend any hearing that may be needed by CourtCall. Parties will be required to:


  • Attach their papers to a completed Judicial Council Form MC-005 (including payment information, if applicable). If a litigant previously has been granted a fee waiver, no fees will be required to submit via the Resource Account.

  • Transmit those papers to the appropriate Resource Account.

  • Ex parte papers must be submitted no later than the filing deadlines set forth in LASC Local Rule 5.3. Rules concerning notice remain the same. Parties are encouraged to electronically transmit their ex parts papers to the other parties and to state in their papers that they did so.

  • Include in the email subject line the case number and case name when submitting documents for filing to the Resource Accounts. Parties will receive notice of the Court’s order on the ex parte application, within one court day of the Court’s ruling, from the same Resource Account. The Court may require the parties to send the order electronically to all other parties and file a proof of service.
