Temporary Orders In A Minnesota Divorce

At Dwire Law Offices, we know that every divorce is unique. In some cases, there are some couples who just cannot come to an agreement. In cases like a high-conflict divorce, temporary orders may be useful. This is an order that you and your spouse must abide by while your divorce is litigated.

With decades of experience assisting clients in Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Prior Lake, Savage and Shakopee, from our Lakeville, Minnesota, law office, you can trust us to fight tirelessly for your best interests. We understand how stressful and overwhelming your divorce can be, and it is even more so when you cannot agree with your spouse on the key terms of your separation. When you work with us, you will receive the personalized attention and care you need to get through this difficult time.

We Can Represent You In Temporary Relief Hearings

Temporary orders are not common because Minnesota law is designed for couples to work out agreements before the need for a trial. If you come to our Lakeville, Minnesota, law firm, we can help you decide if it is necessary to pursue a temporary order to deal with issues such as:

  • Child support
  • Child custody and parenting time
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Who temporarily lives in the marital home
  • Who is in charge of certain financial obligations

For most couples, there are many options to help them work out their differences before it is necessary to pursue temporary relief. In fact, in Minnesota, temporary orders are not allowed until after you and your spouse have attended the Initial Case Management Conference (ICMC). If your spouse is being unreasonable, our founder, divorce lawyer Todd Dwire, can go through the courts to get an order, such as a temporary custody arrangement, put in place until your divorce can be finalized. As your attorney, Todd can act quickly and decisively to protect you.
