The lawyers at ARLS may, after speaking with a potential client, determine that an Ex-parte Petition is necessary (or, the client’s specific county may require initial Ex-Parte petitions). Simply put, an Ex-Parte Petition requests that the court enter an order having the Respondent involuntarily placed into assessment/stabilization/detox without a hearing based solely on the information in the petition. If granted, a judge will order the Respondent to be picked up and delivered to the pre-determined treatment facility for assessment, stabilization and/or detox. The pick-up order will be execute by law enforcement. This pick-up typically can be accomplished within twenty-four (24) to forty-eight (48) hours after filing. The Respondent will be picked up and taken to the detox facility, unless the Respondent flees or evades law enforcement.

Note: It is very important that the Respondent have no knowledge of Marchman Act proceedings under such circumstances to maximize success.
