Temporary Orders

Temporary orders are legally binding court orders to be in effect while the case is pending. Temporary orders are primarily meant to maintain the status quo that parties had prior to filing for dissolution, separation, or custody cases. They are meant to be temporary in time and typically involve issues such as temporary parenting time or visitation, temporary parental responsibilities, temporary child support, temporary maintenance, temporary use of marital property, and temporary payment of marital expenses or other financial obligations. Temporary orders are extinguished upon entry of final, permanent orders.
