What Can These Orders Do?

Temporary orders are entered when a couple wants a divorce and the judge needs to decide what should be done and what the parties are going to do while the case is pending. They are a way for Texas courts to assure that financial, medical and housing issues are addressed leading up to and during a divorce. They can:

  • Separate finances, assets and debts
  • Prevent/prohibit taking on debts/expenses
  • Ensure access to children for parents
  • Instruct on payments such as temporary spousal maintenance or child support
  • Protect against abusive behavior

At a divorce temporary order hearing, orders are entered and dictate the terms and conditions the parties must abide by while their divorce case is pending. Any violation may result in a finding of contempt. A party can be jailed and fined for violating the court’s orders. They can be tailored to a family’s unique needs, goals and circumstances.
