How to Prepare for a Temporary Hearing in a Divorce or Custody Case

In Georgia divorce cases and custody disputes, judges frequently order the parties to attend a "Rule Nisi" to decide temporary issues such as: temporary possession of the marital residence; child custody and parenting schedules; child support; and temporary alimony.

In this video, Georgia family law attorney Christie Ayotte provides an overview of:

  • what a "Rule Nisi" (aka, "temporary hearing") is,
  • what issues are frequently decided during temporary hearings,
  • how the process works at a temporary hearing (who speaks when),
  • and how to adequately prepare for a temporary hearing, including information about which kinds of evidence may and may not be used pursuant to Uniform Superior Court Rule 24.5.
