Temporary Orders in a Divorce Case

How to Get Temporary Custody & Support Orders in TX

As you enter a divorce proceeding, you will encounter a waiting period in which a temporary order is issued. This phase can last anywhere from 8 months to a year. Once this period is complete, only then will you be eligible for divorce. This phase is similar to other states’ “legal separations,” except that it is actually part of the divorce process. Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law has been representing clients through their divorce cases and other family law issues for many years.

Pacing Yourself Through the Divorce Process

Since legal separation is not recognized in the state of Texas, it is important that you consult with a lawyer who can make sure your rights and interests are protected.

Temporary orders are an important step in a family law case as they serve to give the couple adequate time to manage the following terms of their pending divorce:

  • Visitation with children
  • Child or spousal support orders
  • Payment of debt / interim attorney fees
  • Conservatorship specifications
  • Property division matters

Take Steps to Protect Your Rights

If you have chosen to live separately from your spouse but not file for divorce, keep in mind that you are not fully protected. Even if you are not living together, you will remain married with your spouse. Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law can help you handle matters of property, mutual children, and support during the temporary order phase.
