    Temporary and Emergency Orders

    Temporary Orders

    orderWhile your family law matter is pending, the Court may issue Temporary Orders.  These orders outline what is to occur while waiting for a final order.  Temporary Orders are null once the court enters its final judgment.  One must petition the Court in order to establish Temporary Orders. 

    Generally, Temporary Orders specify issues of interim child support, child custody, spousal maintenance, division of assets, allocation of debt, and use of family residence and vehicles.  Establishing Temporary Orders may be a crucial action/ step to take in your family law matter:  it may have a lasting effect upon the permanent orders of the Court.
