Temporary Orders Helping to Make Your Family Matters Less Stressful

Temporary Orders Attorney in Fort Worth

Representing Clients in Tarrant County, Wise County, Johnson County, & Parker County

Temporary orders are designed to maintain the status quo as much as possible, to preserve a stable environment while resolving certain legal issues. Some of the most common are temporary financial orders, to make sure a spouse cannot run up debt or otherwise spend all of the money, and temporary visitation, possession and access orders to ensure that parents maintain access to their children, during a divorce.

Additionally, temporary orders can be utilized in domestic abuse situations or circumstances in which one person is harassing another. People who find themselves in these circumstances are encouraged to seek a temporary restraining order while they are waiting for their court case to begin.

At the Law Offices of Mark M. Childress, PLLC., in Fort Worth, we can make sure that temporary orders are in place to protect you and your children.
