A motion in Limine generally deals with evidence. You’ll see this unusual form of motion right before a hearing or trial. They are usually used in the attempt to prevent the use of evidence at trial (either because your spouse doesn’t want you to use documents, or testify to certain things). What is unique about a motion in limine, is that the motion doesn’t have to be writing. Because it deals with evidence, it’s sort of like blurting out “objection” at trial. So, before a hearing (or trial) starts, you can raise the motion verbally, by simply saying, “Judge I have a motion in Limine that I would like to have resolved.” However, if the issue is important enough, you or your spouse may want to bring the motion in writing.
