How long does it take to get Temporary Orders in an Arizona Divorce Case?
It can take a judge thirty to sixty days to schedule a Temporary Orders Hearing. The court can set a hearing sooner if you file a motion to expedite that hearing and can demonstrate valid reasons for the request.
Such reasons may include that you have been cut off from all community income and do not have an income to support yourself or your children are in danger of serious physical, emotional, or psychological harm.
In some cases, the court may issue emergency child custody orders the same day the petition for an emergency custody order is requested by a parent, if the Petition filed provides sufficient facts that, if true, would mean the children are in imminent danger of serious physical, emotional, and/or psychological harm.
