It is an unfortunate reality that many parents face situations or circumstances that they feel need the Court’s immediate attention to ensure the safety of their children. When such situations arise, a parent may need to seek emergency custody of their child. A parent can seek an emergency custody order through an ex parte proceeding. When an order is granted ex parte, the other parent may or may not receive notice of the proceeding prior to the hearing taking place. In order to seek an emergency custody order which changes custody of the child, a parent must be able to show the Court that the child is
- Exposed to a substantial risk of bodily injury
- Exposed to a substantial risk of sexual abuse
- There is a substantial risk that the child may be abducted or removed from the state of North Carolina.
