Using Temporary Relief Orders to Protect Your Interests
At Brodie & Friedman, P.A., our divorce attorneys routinely advise clients about the availability of temporary relief orders, especially in cases where a judge’s intervention early in the case appears necessary to stabilize a volatile child custody situation, protect the marital estate from waste or concealed assets, or even protect your physical security from violence or abuse.
Although temporary relief orders can be useful to resolve an emergency situation early in your divorce case, they’re more often used to clarify the rights and responsibilities of the divorcing spouses on an interim basis on such standard issues as alimony, child support, and the parenting plan.
Temporary relief is also available to resolve such problems as:
- Exclusive use and occupancy of the marital home
- Payment of the other spouse’s attorney fees and litigation expenses
- Threats to remove children of the marriage out of reach of the other parent
- Transfers of marital property out of the marital estate
- Continuation of health insurance coverage or access to checking accounts
- Interference with family business assets
- Unusual payments from marital assets on separate debts
Experienced Legal Help With Your Florida Divorce Issues
Many people come to our law firm with all issues defined. We can assist in reviewing an existing agreement to ensure your interests are protected, or we can assist in compiling your wishes into a comprehensive settlement agreement, addressing issues such as:
- Property division and debt allocation
- Child custody
- Parenting Plans
- Alimony/spousal support
- Equitable distribution
- Child support
- Other important concerns
Your divorce settlement agreement can then be presented to the court and converted into your divorce decree. You can have confidence in the decisions made, rather than leaving the final judgement up to a judge who does not understand the uniqueness of your situation.
Negotiating Divorce Settlements
When a marriage starts to fall apart, it can be difficult to converse with one another, let alone come to agreement on terms as important as parental responsibility and business asset division. However, when both parties are willing to try to work together to negotiate an agreement, it can save everyone time and money.
Our South Florida divorce lawyers can help you effectively negotiate on complex divorce issues and work with you to create a fair property settlement agreement, parenting plan and other components of your divorce agreement. Even if all issues (equitable distribution, alimony, child support) cannot be decided through negotiation or divorce mediation, remaining concerns can be brought to court. Our attorneys remain dedicated to your interests and your goals, whether we represent you through a negotiated solution or we assert your rights in divorce litigation.
