Washington Temporary Divorce Orders

In King County, the trial date for a dissolution is set for approximately eleven months from the time of filing. Typically, the parties cannot wait 11 months to get things resolved, there needs to be some "ground rules" set during this time. While awaiting the trial, either party may move the Court for Temporary Orders.

The temporary orders can include a Temporary Parenting Plan (defining both parents rights and responsibilities toward the children), temporary child support, temporary spousal maintenance, and temporary restraining orders. The Orders can include restraints against disposing of any property except in the usual course of business or for the necessities of life; molesting or disturbing the peace of the other party or of any child; temporary use and occupancy of the family home; going onto the grounds of or entering the home, workplace, or school of the other party or the day care or school of any child; temporary use of automobiles; or removing a child from the jurisdiction of the Court.

A temporary order, temporary restraining order, or preliminary injunction does not prejudice the rights of a party or any child at the time of trial. Temporary orders may be revoked or modified; and they terminate when the final Decree is entered.
