88. Unless expressly otherwise provided, any demand in a suit is made by motion to the court, or to a judge if the court is not sitting or in cases of urgency.
The motion must be supported by an affidavit attesting the truth of all facts the proof of which is not already in the record, and it can only be contested orally, unless the court allows written contestation within the time and on the conditions it determines.
During the hearing of the demand, any party may submit relevant evidence.
