I expected to at least have some opportunity to rebut whatever allegations are raised against me, but Joseph accepted this explanation from my ex-wife:
Notice cannot or should not be given for the following reasons (if you check any box in parts 3a-3d, you must explain in detail underpart 3e):I will be posting more on this.
a. [X] Notice of this ex parte application would frustrate the purpose of the orders sought herein (explain below).
b. [X] The applicant would suffer immediate and irreparable harm before the adverse party could be heard in opposition (explain below).
e. [X] Other (explain or describe in detail): I did not give Respondent notice because I am afraid for the safety of my children if Respondent knew of the orders being sought.
I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct.
