State Specific Orders for Temporary Custody, Parenting Time/Visitation and Child Support with Filing Instructions
There are several reasons temporary orders may be desired by one or both parties of a divorce or separation. The goal of temporary orders (often referred to or called "pendente lite" orders, which is Latin for "until litigation") is to establish some ground rules, which enhance stability during a separation and especially during the time leading up to a divorce. The divorce process can take several months to complete (sometimes a few years), especially those that are contested, so it is essential that temporary orders are put in place to provide a consistent lifestyle for you and your child(ren).
Temporary orders are easy to establish, recommended by the court, and provide the rights that the parents and the child(ren) both need and deserve. Please keep in mind that temporary orders can cure a current problem as well as prevent one.
