In South Dakota, when can a judge issue an "ex parte" Protection Order?

A South Dakota judge may grant an "ex parte" Protection Order if it appears that there is an immediate and irreparable danger that the Respondent will physically abuse you or threaten to physically abuse you before the hearing can be held.
