Many clients need immediate help when they first start going through a divorce. The idea that a divorce can take many months to finalize is very upsetting for most people. But there are temporary motions that can be filed to address issues such as temporary child support, custody, possession and occupancy of the marital home and the like. Temporary orders are legally binding guidelines that both parties must follow until the divorce is finalized.
Some common items covered in a temporary divorce order include:
– An agreement not to use the other party’s credit or make a large purchase without advance written notice
– Jointly owned property cannot be sold or used for collateral
– Insurance policies must remain in effect
– A child visitation and child support agreement
– No changes should be made to retirement accounts
– Agreement as to who will remain in the family home
