In a family law case, a court generally issues temporary orders at the beginning of the case. That order governs the parties' relationship--child custody, parent time, alimony, property distribution--while the case is ongoing.
The temporary orders stay in force until a court issues a final judgment.
The motion for temporary orders is heard before a court commissioner. When the commissioner makes issues temporary orders, the orders are in effect until the end of the case. If the divorce takes a long time, you may have temporary orders in place for a long time, which can have an effect on the overall outcome of negotiations or trial.
