What rights do I have during a divorce?

Once an action has been filed in a family law matter, neither party has rights that are superior to the other party's rights until the court has had the opportunity to hear both parties' arguments and to issue an order. Therefore neither parent has a right more superior to the other as to where the children are going to reside or legal decisions that are going to be made on behalf of the children. Therefore it is important as soon as you file that initial pleading to work towards obtaining a temporary order so you can have the ground rules which clearly establish who will be making the decisions during the pendency of your family law matter.
