In many cases it is necessary for one of the parties to obtain temporary orders from the court effective until the matter is finally resolved. These temporary orders often include (but are by no means limited to):

      • Child Custody
      • Child Visitation
      • Child Support
      • Spousal Support
      • Move Out Orders
      • Restraining Orders Against Violence
      • Restraining Orders Against Selling Community Property
      • Temporary Possession Of Real Or Personal Property
      • Payment Of Attorney Fees and Costs

If the parties cannot resolve these issues by way of a formal or informal agreement, the usual method for obtaining temporary orders is the "Order To Show Cause" hearing. OSC papers are filed, a hearing date is set, and the papers are served on the opposing party and/or his attorney. A hearing is held on the issues usually within a month.

If there is some particular emergency which cannot wait for resolution, temporary orders can be obtained on what is called an "Ex Parte" basis within 24 hours.
