Divorce proceedings can take longer than anticipated depending on the specific facts of your case. However, there are some aspects of the proceedings that require immediate relief, and temporary orders provide this relief. Temporary orders can protect you, your children, or your property while the divorce is pending.
If you will be going through a divorce and are self-employed, you must understand that you will be identified as a business owner. As such, it's in your best interests to do everything possible to protect your business and source of income.
