How do I request temporary orders? Temporary orders are used prior to the finalization of a divorce. Temporary orders may be appropriate when the parties are unable to work together and need to set ground rules in the interim. These orders can then be tweaked as needed or incorporated as is into your final divorce order or Judgment.
If you hire a family law attorney, they can assist you with filing your temporary orders with the court. Temporary orders can be requested in the following areas; spousal support, child support, custody, visitation, or in order to have temporary rights to use and possess the family home, vehicles, or various bank accounts. Moreover, your attorney can also request orders in the event you feel that your safety, or the safety of your children is in jeopardy. These orders are also known as temporary restraining orders, TRO.
The next steps after a request for temporary orders have been made are for both parties to attend a court hearing. At the court hearing, the opposing party, or their attorney will be able to contest the motion, and explain why the judge should not grant the motion requested.
