Ex Parte Baker Act
A Baker Act is a means of providing individuals with emergency services and temporary detention for mental health evaluation and treatment when required. An Ex Parte Petition for Involuntary Examination is also called Ex Parte Baker Act. An ExP arte Petition for Involuntary Examination may be filed if there is reason to believe that a person is mentally ill and because of his or her mental illness:

  • The person has refused voluntary examination and/or is unable to determine whether an examination is necessary. 
  • The person is likely to suffer from neglect and the refusal could threaten his or her well being.
  • If there is a substantial likelihood that without care or treatment, the person will cause serious bodily harm to himself or herself or others in the near future as evidenced by recent behavior.
