Effective August 1, 2019, the Probate Division is making changes to the requirements for submitting ex parte applications for efiling. As of the effective date, upon submission, the filing party must designate whether an ex parte request is a drop off ex parte or an appearance ex parte.
When an appearance ex parte is submitted, the filer must add the date, time and department to the caption of the application.
Designating the type of ex parte and adding appearance information to the caption of the ex parte application will further streamline the Court’s processing of the applications. The designations for ex parte type will be available for selection by filers using the document type drop-down menu when uploading the document to the efiling system.
As a reminder, all ex parte applications must be submitted with an ex parte proposed order.
