Emergency Relief

While courts prefer to adjudicate disputes with the well-considered input of all concerned parties, after notice and a full hearing, from time to time a legitimate emergency may require immediate court action to prevent an irreparable injury.  In such a case, the court will entertain an application to enter an immediate emergency order, without waiting for a written response to the emergency request or setting a hearing days or weeks away.  If a party learns of an action, taken or about to be taken, which could be prevented or remediated by a court order, preventing further harm and injury, an emergency court filing should seriously be considered, and a competent professional retained for that purpose as soon as practicable.  In some cases, hours or even minutes of delay can make the difference between having a reasonable remedial option available or tragedy.
