A Petition for Temporary Orders is a legal document filed with the Court asking the Court to make “temporary” orders on certain issues pending final adjudication of the case. This document can be filed before or after a decree or judgment has been entered by the Court; however, there must be an underlying petition filed before or contemporaneously with the Petition for Temporary Orders. Such a  petition often involve any combination of the following issues:

  • Legal Decision-Making
  • Parenting Time
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Payment on Debts
  • Real Property

A Petition for Temporary Orders can be “with” or “without” notice. One with Notice simply means that the filing party must provide notice of the filing to the opposing party along with an Order to Appear for a hearing on the Temporary Orders. The parties will be required to appear at a hearing before the judge will render a decision on the Temporary Orders. Alternatively, a Petition for Temporary Orders without Notice means that the filing party is requesting that the judge make an immediate decision on the filing party’s petition without first giving the other party notice of the filing and a chance to appear in front of the judge. This type of petition is typically only granted in emergency situations.
