The court may issue temporary orders to protect the parties involved. These generally will last until your divorce is settled. Temporary orders can provide alimony, access to children, access to your home, extension of medical benefits, or they can be used to prevent your spouse from running up debt on jointly held credit cards.
Temporary orders provide financial support to a spouse who may need it until a divorce is finalized.
Temporary orders are also used to secure your access to the children or the home should your spouse try to use a restraining order to remove you from their life.
