What Are Temporary Orders in a Divorce Case?

Child Support Myths

It can take months or even years to settle a divorce. Yet during that time, many couples that can’t come to an agreement on their own may still need help navigating different financial and parenting time matters. Temporary orders allow both parties to handle issues such as spousal support payments, child support payments, parental responsibility, division of properties and vehicles, payment of expenses, and debt. They can be vital especially for spouses with children that need to implement a parenting plan right away.

How Temporary Orders Work

Temporary orders can take place through a scheduled Court hearing ordered by a judge or through mediation. Before the hearing, each spouse comprises a list of their monthly income, expenses, and property which will be used by the Court to decide how the following matters will be temporarily dealt with.

  • Establishing a custody child arrangement
  • Providing child/spousal support or alimony
  • Creating a time-sharing plan
  • Granting one spouse ownership of the house, vehicle, or other property

To obtain a temporary order for your divorce, you need to file a petition first and then a motion for a temporary order with the Court second. In the motion, you must cite your reasoning for the order and what you would like it to include. Based on your requests, you may have to file additional paperwork which your attorney can help you handle.
