In Texas, what do you need to do to prepare for a temporary order hearing Hi. I’m Eric Engel, a Dallas divorce lawyer with the Engel Law Group here in the DallasFort Worth metro area. A temporary order hearing is a hearing in which the court sets the ground rules for who gets what property, what debts get paid, who gets custody of the children, and how much child support if any gets paid while the divorce is going through the court system. In Texas, there are four things you need to do to prepare for your temporary order hearing.
One Texas is a conservative state, so you need to be conservatively dressed. This means that if you are a man, you should be wearing a suit and you should be cleanly shaven. If you are a woman, you should be wearing a long dress or a professional business suit. Two you need to arrive to court on time. You don’t want to be late when it comes to deciding whether or not you’re going to be able to keep custody of your kids. Three you want to make sure that you’re friendly towards the other and you’re friendly towards the.
Court staff. If you’re rude to the court staff, this has a way of getting back to the judge who won’t take it kindly and may actually make you pay more money or take away custody of your children. Four you want to make sure that you deliver all the papers to the other side into the court in a timely manner. Why am I telling you this I’m telling you this because you’ve just been served with papers for a temporary order hearing or you’re preparing for a temporary order hearing yourself in the state of Texas. These are the sort of.
