Preliminary Injunction & Temporary Orders

Question: If the divorce isn't going to be final for months or more, are there any rules until then?

Answer: Yes. First, under Arizona divorce law, many rules go into effect via the “Preliminary Injunction.” This Injunction is part of every properly filed divorce action in Arizona. Second, many parties to a divorce want more specific rules in place until the divorce becomes final. The court hands down these case-specific rules after one or both parties to a divorce case request temporary orders. A request for temporary orders may require a brief court hearing if the parties cannot agree. These temporary orders may address child support, custody, parental access, spousal maintenance (alimony), payment of debts, use of the marital residence and other issues. The temporary orders are only valid until the court finalizes the divorce.
