LRSP 2. UNLAWFUL HARASSMENT PROCEEDINGS (a) Jurisdiction. If the circumstances alleged in the petition for unlawful harassment meet the statutory criteria, the court shall hear the case unless the parties are already involved in a pending dissolution, dependency or paternity proceeding in which case the matter shall be transferred to Superior Court. The court may require a petitioner to appear and provide testimony prior to issuance of an ex parte temporary order. (b) Indigent Filing. Upon request of the applicant, the Court shall assess the applicant's financial resources to determine if that individual may proceed in forma pauperis. For the purpose of determining whether grounds for waiver of the filing fee exist, the applicant must complete under oath and submit an Application For Waiver of Fees. No order authorizing waiver of the filing fee shall issue unless the mandatory financial information is submitted to the Court. (c) Hearing. In unlawful harassment actions only the parties may testify without cross examination, or make statements as allowed by the court. The court may take testimony if it appears to the court necessary for an adequate determination of the matter.
