Temporary Court Orders During a Divorce
Even uncontested divorces can take many months to finalize. Yet, during divorce proceedings, you may wonder: Where will the children live? Who gets to stay in the family home? How will we pay the bills? Many divorcing spouses file petitions for temporary orders with the court at the same time or after they file their divorce petition. Temporary orders can include orders for:
- Child custody
- Parenting time (visitation)
- Temporary child support
- Temporary spousal maintenance/alimony
- Payment of community debts
- Exclusive use of a home or vehicle
The court can also order temporary child custody and child support during paternity hearings. Temporary orders remain in place until your divorce or child custody case reaches a final resolution.
Emergency Court Orders
During crisis situations, it might be necessary to obtain an immediate order to protect your children. When a child has been kidnapped or there has been other custodial interference (such as parental relocation), our family law attorneys help parents obtain emergency child custody orders.
We also assist clients who need emergency court orders for situations such as:
- Registering a child in school
- Authorizing emergency medical treatment
- Protecting against domestic violence
- And more
