A divorce, or dissolution of marriage, is a legal proceeding brought to dissolve a marriage and return each spouse to the legal status of single. In the context of a dissolution of marriage action, the spouses may request child custody and visitation, property, child support, spousal support, and attorney‚Äôs fees and costs orders. Some of these orders may be requested on a temporary basis while the divorce is pending before "permanent" orders are either agreed upon in a settlement or ordered by the court at trial. Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be important to request temporary orders right away.
