What is temporary child custody?

Temporary custody court orders are beneficial if you and your ex-spouse cannot agree on a permanent child custody plan. These temporary orders dictate who gets custody and visitation while your trial is being resolved. Oftentimes, the court enforces the terms of the temporary child custody orders when drawing up the final custody arrangement. If you are not satisfied with your temporary orders, it is important to speak up right away. Otherwise, you may be stuck with them for the foreseeable future.

If your child is mature enough to be able to articulate their desires regarding custody, you may consider hiring a court-appointed attorney on behalf of your child. By securing our firm's representation before the court settles on a child custody arrangement, we can help you obtain your desired outcome. A Mission Viejo divorce lawyer from The Hunter Law Group would be honored to assist you.
