New Frequently Asked Question: “What’s the difference between a family court temporary order and final order?

In 2006, after the Supreme Court changed the family court administrative rules from the 270 day rule (after 270 days from filing, unresolved family court cases were struck from the active roster but the temporary orders remained in effect) to the 365 day rule (after 365 days from filing, unresolved family court cases were dismissed and temporary orders were void), family court practice changed somewhat.  No longer could a litigant satisfied with the result of the temporary order rest on that order until the other side took action; now such litigants needed to reach a final resolution of their cases.

I have recently had a hard time explaining to clients why they need to proceed to trial if they are happy with the temporary order.  Thus, this new Frequently Asked Question: “What’s the difference between a family court temporary order and final order?”  I hope it’s helpful.
