How does a judge decide if an ex parte order will be granted or denied? 

In order to decide whether an ex parte motion will be granted or denied, the judge considers several factors. These may include such things as the likelihood of success for the motion, what the potential consequences are for granting or denying the motion, whether there is a danger that evidence might be lost or destroyed, and whether there is a potential for prejudice from not having time to prepare to oppose the motion.

However, a judge cannot decide on an ex parte motion without any information from both sides. This means that if you have been served with an ex parte motion but have yet to file your response, you should contact the court immediately and request that your response be filed and served in a timely manner.

If you are unable to resolve your issue before filing a response to an ex parte order, it is important that you do so as soon as possible. Failing to file your response in a timely manner could lead to negative consequences down the line.
