If you watched the video that was linked to above, you know that temporary orders are the first big step in a divorce or child custody issue.

In addition to temporary orders, mediation is an important part of the divorce process and a very common step in the process. If you would like to know more about mediation and the role it plays in the divorce process, please read this post: Rockwall County Mediation.
One way to avoid things like temporary orders is to come to an agreement with the other party prior to filing suit. If you do that, you can use an attorney to simply make sure the paperwork is done properly and the proper steps are taken to complete your divorce properly. In other words, you can use attorney to dot the I’s and cross the T’s instead of hiring an attorney to fight the other side. Hiring an attorney to fight is much more expensive than having them do a little paperwork. If you’d like to know more about agreed divorces, please read this post: Rockwall County Agreed Divorce.
