Pursuing and Defending Motions for Temporary Orders in Divorce Cases

In many divorces, one spouse is in need of an immediate court order governing child custody, parent-time, child support, alimony, or division of marital property.  Because a permanent resolution of these issues may not occur until many months or years down the road, Utah affords divorcing spouses an opportunity to apply to the court at any time during the case for “temporary orders” that will govern these issues until the case is resolved.  In some instances, the parties are able to amicably agree on how to address these issues until the case is resolved.  In others, the motion for temporary orders is hotly contested, requiring a court hearing and a court-imposed resolution.
