Navigating Temporary Orders: Custody, Child Support, and Spousal Support

Temporary orders, especially pertaining to custody, child support, and spousal support, often take center stage in contested hearings, even more so than the final allocation of parental rights or property division.

Emotions typically run high at the outset of a case, making agreement seemingly unreachable. At such times, the court steps in to issue temporary orders that will remain in effect until the final trial.

Distinguishing Temporary Orders from Temporary Restraining Orders:

A temporary order outlines how parties must navigate their divorce case during its progression. Despite their temporary nature, these orders can significantly influence the ultimate resolution. Temporary orders stand apart from temporary restraining orders.

Temporary orders can take various forms based on court practices. Some courts issue them based on parties’ affidavits, while others rely on attorneys presenting evidence and statements without client testimony. Still, others involve both parties testifying about the necessary temporary orders. Depending on your jurisdiction, different magistrates might handle temporary support and temporary custody matters separately. Regardless of the approach, adequate preparation for temporary orders is pivotal in shaping the entire divorce case.

Collaborating with your attorney to develop a strategic approach ensures that the court understands custody-related matters through the lens of temporary orders.
