If the other parent or I get ex parte temporary custody, can either of us leave the state with our child?

No. Whenever a judge grants an ex parte order for temporary custody, s/he also enters an order that says that whoever is getting custody cannot take the child out of the state before the hearing that will establish final custody.1
