Houston Lawyers for Temporary Divorce Orders

Temporary Orders for Support & Custody

In divorce and custody cases, we can request the court to have a hearing and make certain temporary orders on your behalf. The other side may also request temporary orders, in which case your divorce attorney in Houston could help you respond quickly and properly to such a request by the other side.

What Are Temporary Orders in a Divorce?

Temporary orders serve a wide range of purposes, but in general, temporary hearings, sometimes called show-cause hearings, serve the purpose of addressing:

  • The arrangements for the children;
  • The use of the couple’s property; and
  • The payment of support.

The duration of the temporary orders may be for all or part of the time that the parties go through divorce proceedings. We believe that the temporary order stage of a divorce or custody proceeding is critical, and that correctly pursuing temporary orders can help you navigate a divorce more easily and protect yourself and family members while your case is pending.

At Diggs & Sadler, our Houston temporary order attorneys are ready to help you prepare for temporary orders hearings and use the right strategy in temporary orders hearings to obtain a better outcome in your case.
