Temporary orders are meant to provide temporary relief and structure for the parties in situations where it is necessary that matters be resolved quickly. Instead of months, a hearing may be scheduled within days or weeks. These orders can be put into place for the following reasons:
- restrain a spouse from contacting or coming near the other,
- force a spouse to move out of the home,
- establish child visitation and custody,
- provide for child support and/or alimony,
- and give possession of valuable assets to one spouse, et cetera.
When one spouse is moving out of the house because of a divorce, issues may be worked out or a temporary order may be issued. If you choose to request a temporary order, you will need to prepare and file specific paperwork pertaining to your request. The process may include, a supporting declaration, a proposed temporary order that grants you the relief that you are requesting, and a proof of service. Though you can do all of this on your own, it is advisable to go through your attorney for this process. An attorney will be more familiar with the process and guide you through it without missing any steps. It is best that the paperwork is done completely, thoroughly, and free of mistakes in order for you to have the best chance at accomplishing your goals of the order.
With a temporary court order, essential matters are often addressed in an accelerated manner to provide initial relief to the parties and their children. When regarding family law, it is advisable to contact a family law attorney to help ease the divorce process.
