Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney here to assist you.
You can file a motion for temporary visitation and custody to establish a time for you to visit with the children until the divorce is final. The court should hear this quickly and give an order until a final divorce decree is entered with permanent visitation and custody guidelines.
I filed the divorce suit at the county supreme court. Would i file the motion for temporary visitation and custody at the same or another court?
What arguments would favor my request with the court since the eldest child is 6 and the youngest is just eight months old?
