Getting ready to file , things are getting messy

Customer Question

Getting ready to file for divorce, things are getting messy at home and thinking about staying at my parents house until the divorce is finalized. Should I file for temporary custody and get an order of protection in place until divorce is finalized? Would this allow me to live in the marital home while he stays with his parents until everything is finalized?

It is usually a good idea to request a temporary custody order to be put in place until the divorce is final. This establishes custody rights and also provides for child support from the non-custodial parent during the pendency of the divorce.

As for the restraining order, that would be something you can request IF you are in fear of your child or you being abused or harmed by your spouse.
