Galveston Divorce Lawyers
Soon after one party files for divorce, a court will issue temporary orders pertaining to child custody, financial support, the family residence and related matters. These interim orders will govern your life for many months and may have a bearing on the final outcome.
It is critical to be prepared for this court hearing to protect your interests and your relationship with your children, and to position yourself favorably for ongoing proceedings. The family law attorneys of Tad Nelson & Associates provide experienced and proactive counsel for this important stage of divorce.
Temporary Orders for Custody and Support
The hearing for temporary orders is typically held within one to three weeks after divorce papers are filed. At the hearing, the judge may issues orders to establish:
- Possession of the marital home, vehicles and other assets
- Where your kids will live and a visitation schedule
- Temporary child support
- Temporary spousal support, if applicable
- Responsibility for paying bills
- Other relevant matters while your divorce is pending
The court usually follows the status quo in determining temporary custody (whichever parent has been the primary caregiver). Our role is to ensure that the judge considers your input regarding interim parenting schedules, duties and decision making. We also make sure that the court has accurate information regarding incomes and expenses, and you have access to accounts and important documents in these early stages, especially if you believe the spouse is hiding assets or manipulating information.
Getting It Right on the Front End
Temporary orders are not the final word, but they do have an impact on later contested proceedings and the final custody orders and property settlement. We encourage cooperation and long-range thinking over an adversarial approach to temporary orders, but we will vigorously stand up for your rights and best interests.

Thank you Tad Nelson for standing up for me and what is right, Tad Nelson is obviously well known and respected through out the court system as he spoke with authority and precisely to the assistant DA resulting in the dismissal of my case before the case went to trial. Thank you again. if you want it done call Tad Nelson
I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
