Through an emergency divorce order, either spouse may appear before the judge and ask for a change in child custody or a restraining order. This may be done by a single spouse without having the other party present in the court. Once the Emergency Order is granted to the spouse, they will set a court date so the other party can appear in court to present their side of the issue. The final result may be modified, made permanent or dismissed based on the testimony. An Emergency Order is most often granted when there are emergency situations such as an ex-spouse being arrested or drugs and alcohol are involved.
Both a Temporary and Emergency Order may be granted to either party during the divorce process. The Sampair Group is here to help either party decide if they need to request a Temporary and Emergency Order.
