Establishing ground rules for my spouse and myself.

Establishing ground rules for my spouse and myself.

While your divorce is pending and since you can't finalize the divorce until at least one hundred and twenty days and knowing that the court's calendar generally prevents you from finalizing a divorce for six to twelve months. The most important thing you can do is to get what's called a temporary order. A temporary order is an order of the court that sets rules for what you or your spouse can do and can't do during the pendency of the divorce. It can also address child placement issues, child support issues, so you have the financial support that you need to be able to survive and live and pay your bills until the divorce is final.
