    Make sure you keep handy a certified copy of order. Also, start making journal entries of these events. If he files suit, ask for drug screen right away. You have good facts, but I try to avoid speaking in absolutes. Thus, I doubt you would be held in contempt, but we need to hear his side of the story to speak with certainty.

  • Do you have to have an attorney to file temporary orders?

    Also, if I pay a $4500 retainer and the divorce goes smooth & uncontested, do I get refunded the amount that wasn't used up?

    Michael’s Answer

    If you have an uncontested divorce, I would not pay 4500 and would not ask for temporary orders. This would be like putting a new engine in a car, that only needs spark plugs changed.
