Me and the collector's attorney have came to an agreement to make payments on amount, he has provided me with a " Stipulated Order" of our settlement, as SOON as the judge signs it ,this will allow me to get my license back which was suspended.
My problem is, I need the judge to sign my stipulated order ASAP , because I need my license back ASAP.....I can't be driving without a license. =[ And I know some judges take weeks to Sign Stipulated orders.
How do I do this ASAP? CAN I file for an exparte for a" stipulation order"??
Sometimes it takes weeks, or even months to get a judge sign a stipulation. It depends on the court and how much they are behind due to the budge cuts. In any event, you can probably go in ex parte and explain your situation. It will be up to the judge, he may sign your stipulation sooner.
You will need to consult with an attorney that practices in the area. If the settlement is related to a family law case, consult a family law attorney. The objective should be to have the attorney give notice of an ex parte appearance in the appropriate court, and then make the appearance in order to have the judge sign the order. Since you have an urgent need to get that signature, an ex parte appearance is the way to handle it. You may have to pay someone to help you with this, but it sounds as though it would be worth it.

You certainly can file an application for an Ex-Parte Order. You should make sure to present a Declaration signed under the Penalty of Perjury Laws in the State of California.
