Regardless of a couple's financial situation, when the marriage ends, there will usually be a monetary deficit for both parties. The amount of money the couple was sharing is now cut in half, at best. This leaves many Texas residents wondering how they will survive financially during the divorce process. In addition, if there are children involved, the parent who leaves the family home may wonder if he or she will get to see his or her children.
For this reason, Texas courts can issue what are called "temporary orders" that will protect your interests and rights until the divorce is complete. Temporary orders cover a myriad of issues such as child support, child custody and alimony. The court can enter an order regarding who will be allowed to remain in the family home and who will be responsible for paying the mortgage loan. A temporary custody arrangement can be entered to allow both parents access to their children.
