Temporary Orders in a Divorce Case
Divorce Lawyer Serving Pearland, TX
As you enter a divorce proceeding, you will encounter a waiting period
in which a temporary order is issued. This phase can last anywhere from
8 months to a year. Once this period is complete, only then will you be
eligible for divorce. This phase is similar to other states’ “legal
separations,” except that it is actually part of the divorce process.
My name is Dennis M. Slate, and I am an experienced Pearland family law
attorney. I have been representing clients through their divorce cases
and other family law issues for many years. I have been given a

Pacing Yourself Through the Divorce Process
Since legal separation is not recognized in the state of Texas, it is important
that you consult with a lawyer who can make sure your rights and interests
are protected. Temporary orders are an important step in a family law
case as they serve to give the couple adequate time to manage the following
terms of their pending divorce:
- Visitation with children
- Child or spousal support orders
- Payment of debt / interim attorney fees
- Conservatorship specifications
- Property division matters
Take Steps to Protect Your Rights
If you have chosen to live separately from your spouse but not file for
divorce, keep in mind that you are not fully protected. Even if you are
not living together, you will remain married with your spouse. Attorney
Dennis M. Slate can help you handle matters of property, mutual children,
and support during the temporary order phase.
