In divorce court, all parties must attend a mediation to attempt a settlement prior to bringing a divorce case to court. If and when mediation should fail to resolve disputed issues, either party at that time may file a motion for temporary relief.
Temporary relief puts into place by court order boundaries by which the parties shall live pending the final divorce proceedings. An order of temporary relief establishes child support, time sharing and parental responsibility, if there are children of the marriage. The temporary relief order also establishes who pays what household expenses, health insurance, attorneys fees, spousal support, and even may divide up some of the assets of the marriage to give the parties monies to live on. Temporary court orders are enforceable by contempt of court.
