Conflicts in family court can take a long time to resolve. Unfortunately, people usually do not have a long time to wait for resolution. A motion for temporary custody is a legal request of a parent to have physical and legal custody of his or her child.
What Is a Motion for Temporary Relief?
A motion for temporary relief is an order by a judge that provides temporary resolution to a major issue. It is often used by people involved in the following cases:
- Child custody/time-sharing
- Child support
- Marital asset distribution
Know that these orders only remain in effect until the formal case is complete. If you are interested in filing a motion for temporary relief in Florida, contact our West Palm Beach family law attorney.
