Temporary Orders

At W. Tattnall Rush Attorney At Law PLLC, Scottsdale, AZ, we help hundreds of families find creative solutions to difficult Family Law matters. In certain complex situations where a couple cannot reach agreements, the Court may issue Temporary Orders or Emergency Temporary Orders to bridge the time until an agreement is made between the parties. These orders may apply to various issues, such as disputes over child custody, visitation, child support, spousal maintenance, division of property and payment of attorney’s fees.

Because this process is complex, assistance from your attorney is needed to properly file a petition for temporary orders. Temporary restraining orders are only issued after the court determines that irreparable injury may occur without that order. For certain orders, the response must be filed and served before the court hearing, and the party may be required to provide financial affidavits on an official court form.

Attorney W. Tattnall Rush is experienced with all Family Law matters and devotes his law practice to helping people resolve complex matters that are part of most divorces or separations. When temporary orders are needed, he helps clients get them properly filed and approved.

Scottsdale Temporary Order Attorney

It is important to work closely with your Scottsdale Temporary Order Attorney to get the best results from all phases of your divorce or separation. Petitions must be accurate and filed according to state rules.

Under Section 6, Rule 37 of the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure, the motion filed must state reasons for the specific relief requested and the legal and jurisdictional basis. Information required may include details about child custody, parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance and property, debt and attorney fees. Temporary orders that change a previous custody order have specific requirements also, including a proposed parenting plan.

How Do Temporary Orders Help Me?

Preliminary injunction orders prevent either party from proceeding with certain activities, such as transferring or selling community property, removing a child from the court’s jurisdiction, changing insurance coverage or harassing the other party or child. Order forms must be signed in front of a Notary Public, and notarized.

Parties are then issued official orders to appear at a court hearing where evidence is presented. Most temporary orders, other than Injunctions Against Harassment or Orders of Protection are enforceable by the court until either dismissal or entry of a final order. In some cases, Temporary Orders can be issued without notice if facts indicate irreparable injury will result to a person or child, or if delay may result in damage to separate or community property.
