What is an Emergency Motion?

An emergency motion is a request for relief to the court that provides shortened, or no notice to the opposing party. In many jurisdictions, all emergency motions are classified as ex parte motions. In most jurisdictions, in addition to providing the facts and legal authorities to support the request for the relief sought, parties must show by affidavit or other means that the relief requested is properly granted on an emergency or ex parte basis. Motions that are commonly brought on an emergency or ex parte basis include motions for a temporary restraining order and requests for continuances and extensions. Emergency Motions
