Austin Temporary Order Lawyers

What is a Temporary Hearing for Divorce?

Throughout the divorce process, there are countless issues to be decided, from custody arrangements to alimony awards to child support payments. Unfortunately, even amicable divorces can take months – sometimes even more than a year – to resolve. As such, important issues that affect parents and children alike may hang in the balance – and that is where temporary orders come in.

Temporary orders can be issued by a family court to help families address urgent issues during divorce proceedings. If you are seeking a temporary order during your divorce, be sure to have a trusted family lawyer on your side to protect your rights. At Hembree Bell Law Firm, PLLC, our temporary order attorney in Austin offers comprehensive and compassionate counsel to families who need help maintaining order during the stressful divorce process.

What to Address in a Temporary Order

When pressing issues – like physical custody of children or alimony for an unemployed spouse – need to be addressed before a divorce is finalized, a court can issue a temporary order. Temporary orders may remain in effect until a formal divorce hearing permanently resolves the issues at hand or until the parties can successfully mediate or negotiate a permanent solution.

A hearing for a temporary order will likely be informal and quick, so you should know exactly what you want before you attend the hearing. Our temporary order attorney in Austin can assess your situation and represent your best interests during the hearing.

A temporary order can be used to make temporary decisions regarding:

  • The marital home
  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Shared property
  • Health insurance
  • Child custody

Following a temporary order hearing, you can expect to receive a judge’s decision within a week. Some cases may be decided sooner if they are especially time-sensitive.
