My ex has filed and ex parte' motion and was granted a "shortened time" in a custody issue. She wants to keep our two daughters 100% and has lied about abuse. We have attended the FCS mediation and we are awaiting the recommendations. There will be a hearing on a "shortened calendar" in a few weeks.
we are both unrepresented at this time. I was surprised to find that SHE could personally serve me notice for the ex parte' hearing.
My questions: I need to file a responsive declaration (RD). Since this is a shortened calendar to an ex parte' matter, do the traditional timelines for providing the RD apply?
When must I file the RD with the court?
Do I have to provide her copies of my RD prior to our court date?
Can "I" serve her copies of this reply personally (me to her)?
Do I have to provide a proof of service before filing with the court?
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
