  • 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.

    Pull certified copy of order, go to pick up and drop off point at start of every visitation, notice her you will be exercising your visitation from this point forward and that you are going to call the police when the child is not turned over.
