Get help finding the Right Family Law Lawyer for your case
When going through a divorce or legal separation, it may be difficult to agree on child custody arrangements. Lawsuits and divorce agreements may take months, but the couple may need decisions and arrangements to be made immediately. For these situations, it is possible to get a temporary order through a short and quick hearing. This can be a way to establish temporary child custody arrangements.
Similarly, if a couple cannot agree on child custody arrangements, they will be ordered by the court to see a mediator. If the dispute still cannot be resolved through mediation, the court then has the right to order a temporary child custody arrangement based on the recommendation of the mediator.
Temporary child custody arrangements typically last until the court holds another trial and a final order can be made. The spouses also may come to an arrangement on their own through mediation or negotiation. However, the final child custody arrangements may take a long time to come to an agreement on. Until then, the temporary child custody order remains in place. If the couple did not agree on the temporary child custody arrangements and one spouse requested the temporary order, it may be detrimental and unfair to the other spouse. It also may not be in the best interest of the child. For this reason, temporary child custody arrangements should be properly mediated and well-thought out.
If you are separating and need a temporary child custody arrangement, a family law lawyer can help you and your spouse come to the best agreement possible that will benefit you both, and most importantly, your child. If there is a dispute about custody, a family law lawyer can help you quickly file a temporary child custody order with the court so that you get the arrangement you want. Similarly, an attorney will fight for your rights if a temporary child custody order is requested by your spouse and you do not agree with its terms.
