Hello! Please stand by as I work on your answer!
If the temporary order was filed for the Judge's review, the Judge may either choose to sign the document that was filed, or make changes and request that you draft a new one based on the changes they request. It will depend on the Judge. There is no reason to draft a new order different than the one that was filed for the Judge to review, unless you are now asking for something different.
You can take the new one with you and ask the Judge to sign the new one. You won't need to refile it, the clerk will take care of it after the Judge has signed it.
The main difference between a temporary or final order is that the final order is not able to be changed unless you reopen the case and pay a modification fee.
