How Temporary Hearing Orders Work
The Unspoken Truth About Temporary Orders Hearings
Temporary orders hearings are a relatively new and exciting development in family law. In the past, couples would have to wait until their divorce papers were finalized before they could work out custody agreements and child support with one another. Now all parties involved can negotiate these issues at any time during the divorce process, which makes it easier for everyone to get what they need as quickly as possible. This article will go over how temporary orders hearings work and give you some tips on how to make sure that your rights are protected throughout this process.
As a temporary orders hearing, the court will be making decisions on issues like where your child lives and who has legal custody of them. The judge may also decide how much each parent pays in support or if they have to provide money for childcare. Before you go into this process, it’s important that you understand what rights are involved and make sure that all parties know about their options too. For example, many people don’t realize that there is no cost for enforcing these agreements by garnishing wages until after the divorce papers have been filed at which point enforcement can get complicated with additional fees applied. You should find out before going into any hearings just what needs to happen when an order isn’t followed so you aren’t caught off guard.
In case you wonder how to get a temporary order against your spouse, you have to bring evidence that they are not following the provisions of their agreement. You can make this request with or without an attorney and if it is granted by the judge then a hearing will be set within 14 days unless there is some extenuating circumstance involving one of the parties.
