Divorce can be a notoriously lengthy process. Despite all the asset protection laws and other aspects of Texas family law intended to streamline the process, a divorce can take months or even years to fully finalize. The divorcing couple’s shared property, separate property, assets, children, and many other factors come into play with a divorce agreement. In some cases, normally upon request of the parties, a court may give orders on issues that cannot wait until the end of the case, such as child custody and possession. In these cases, the court may issue temporary orders to immediately resolve these problems until a more comprehensive ruling is made on the divorce. If you have questions or need guidance concerning temporary orders in Austin, Texas, contact temporary orders attorney Abraham Kant today to schedule your free initial consultation.
Court orders for a divorce agreement are binding and permanent (or have clearly defined time limits). Temporary orders, however, are just that: temporary. Most divorce cases will begin with temporary orders if the entire divorce will require a timeframe that won’t allow for decisions that demand immediate attention. Temporary order hearings are shorter and less formal than standard divorce hearings, but these orders are no less binding. They are simply subject to change later as the divorce proceedings continue.
Some of the most common issues handled in temporary orders hearings include:
These are just a few issues that temporary court orders handle. Either divorcing spouse may request temporary orders by filing the appropriate paperwork with the court and attending a temporary orders hearing.
