Divorce Issues That Temporary Orders Can Address

If you are going through a divorce, you may have urgent issues that you need to get resolved even before the divorce is finalized. In such a case, you may petition the court for a temporary order, which grants you temporary directives or decisions while the divorce is pending. Below are some of the issues you may address through temporary orders.

Possession of Marital Home

One spouse might wish to eject the other from their marital home before the divorce is finalized. Say your partner is abusive, but you don't have anywhere to stay because you are a stay-at-home parent and your partner has locked you out of the family finances. In such a case, you can petition the court to grant you exclusive use of the family home during the divorce. Another example is if your partner has kicked you out of the family home, but you want to continue living there while the divorce is pending. A temporary order can help you get the court to grant your request.

Use of Family Car

If you have one car for the both of you, then the person whose name is on the car's title may exclude you from using the car during the divorce. Maybe you used to drive the car to work because your partner works at home, but they don't want you to drive the car anymore. You can request a temporary court order forcing your partner to allow you to continue using the car as you used to do before the division of assets is finalized in the divorce. The same applies to other assets your family owns.

Child Support

Your kids won't stop eating, going to school, or needing new clothes just because you are going through a divorce. In fact, you should do your best to minimize the negative effects of the divorce on the kids, and you need money to do this. If you are not living together with your spouse during the divorce, a temporary order from the court can force the noncustodial parent to pay temporary child support to the custodial parent.

Spousal Support

Just like child support, spousal support may also be necessary before the divorce is over. As long as you don't have the money to take care of yourself through the divorce, and your partner has the money, they should support you during this time. If your partner can't support you out of their own volition, then a temporary order from the court can force them to do so.

Speak with your divorce lawyer for more information about these temporary orders.
