Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
If the judge has not signed an order, then it would not be in effect. The temporary order could still be in effect unless by the explicit terms of the order it has lapsed (that is, if it says that "after X days" it will no longer be in effect, etc...) but if the specific terms of the order have not lapsed, then unless a new order is put into place, the temporary one would still be in effect.
If the temporary one has lapsed by the explicit terms, and the new one has not been signed by the judge, then neither one would be in effect, and there would not be any of the restrictions by the judge.
Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate this answer either a 3, 4, or 5 (good or better). Please note that I do not get any credit for this answer unless and until you rate it that way. Thank you, and again, good luck to you!
I understand your situation. If it appears that the judge has made up his/her mind, then it might appear that you're being belligerent, although there would be nothing to hold you to. That is, there would be nothing to complain about you not keeping with. Ultimately it would depend upon what the judge has said and inferred as to what the state of your case is and what your obligations (if any) are.
Again, without an order there's nothing that is specifically telling you how to behave.
But the judge's actions, inferences, etc... could give you an idea whether or not a specific action on your part would provoke the judge's "ire".
Did you have any other questions before you rate this answe?
Are you there? Please note that I am still here, awaiting your response or your rating....
Should I continue to await your response, or may I assist the other customers that are waiting for an answer?
My apologies, but I must assist the other customers that are waiting. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If there's nothing else, and you have not yet, please rate this answer either a 3, 4, or 5 (good or better). Please note that I do not get any credit for the time (~ 45 minutes) that I spent with you so far unless and until you rate it that way. Thank you, and again, good luck to you!
