Interim Orders in a Michigan Divorceinterim orders

Divorces are not speedy. They take a minimum of 60 days in Michigan to complete – 180 days if you have children – and, in either case, usually last up to a year or more. Interim orders are arguments that are heard and decided quickly in family court – though not permanently – and usually involve spousal support and child custody.

What Do Interim Orders Cover?

Interim orders, also known as temporary orders, address matters that are pressing and cannot wait for the end of a divorce to be decided. Parties can ask a court to temporarily decide on urgent matters which may include:

Hearings for interim orders, once the request has been properly made, are usually scheduled quickly, sometimes within days, and a judge will issue his or her decision on the matter. The interim orders that are granted are typically valid unless another hearing is requested or until the spouses arrive at a permanent divorce settlement through negotiation.

Why File for a Temporary Order in a Michigan Divorce?

Even if your divorce is proceeding amicably, things can change in a heartbeat. Or, you may not trust that your soon-to-be former spouse will deliver on the things they promised, like help paying the mortgage, buying the kids’ school clothes and supplies, or dropping the kids off for their weekend with you. An interim order creates a legal judgment that is binding, at least temporarily, so you can get the support and time with your kids that was agreed upon.

Every interim order is determined on a case-by-case basis. What you need and ask for will differ from what another divorcing couple may consider a pressing matter. A court will take into consideration a variety of factors to make their decision, typically the same details that will be applicable in a final divorce decree, like the length of the marriage and whether the spouse can earn the necessary income to support the household.
