Judgement in a Family Court Case

Spartanburg, SC |

In a Judgement in a Family Court Case does SCRCP Form 4F have to be signed by the Family Court Judge for the Temporary Order to be in effect.

  1. No.

    Coversheets are usually required by the Clerk's office for filing purposes. I don't think a 4F is used for a temporary order -normally that would be the motion and order information form coversheet.

    But regardless, a coversheet is not required for an order to be in effect. The part signed by the judge is all that is required.


  2. If you have an order signed by a judge and file-stamped by the clerk of court in your matter, then it is more than likely a valid enforceable order, which each party would need to abide by.
