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.

terms of their pending divorce:
- Visitation with children
- Child or spousal support orders
- Payment of debt / interim attorney fees
- Conservatorship specifications
- Property division matters
