Muskogee Lawyer BlogWhat Is a Temporary Order Hearing in an Oklahoma Family Law Case?

Your Children’s Best Interest Matters if There Are Kids Involved


family law attorney in Muskogee, OklahomaVideo Transcribed: Hi, Muskogee lawyer Eric Strocen here. I’m here to talk to you today about temporary order hearings in a family law case. We’re talking about what to do, and what governs the party during dependency of the case.

Depending on the facts of your individual situation, whether it be a paternity case to establish custody, visitation, or child support. Or whether it be a full divorce and you need to determine who’s going to have the kids on this day, or where they’re going to go for school, things like that.

Because cases take time to develop, and for judges to get in front of them and get them on their calendar, oftentimes it’s necessary to have a temporary order put in place in order to govern the behavior of the parties, to ensure things are progressing and that a child’s best interest is taken care of if there’s a child involved, or that property’s not being moved around unnecessarily, or one party’s not doing something to the detriment of the other.

These hearings can be a very important part of a family law case because oftentimes as things progress, we don’t know unless we have a temporary order, how one person or the other should act. So it’s important that, if you have a family law case in which there are children or there are major property interests, you explore the idea of having a temporary order put in place during dependency of your case.
