Once both parties have filed for divorce (meaning both the petition and the response have been filed), they will meet to reach agreements on a number of items such as custody, visitation, and child support. During this meeting, they may also agree to how much money one of the parties may receive, as well as who will remain in their residence until the dissolution is final.
However, if the parties are unable to agree, either party can file a request for order to obtain temporary orders until the divorce is final. It can take 30 to 40 days to get a court hearing, so there’s not much that the court can do before an order is made. That’s why I encourage the parties to talk amongst themselves to get those items settled before they even have to go to court.
