Temporary Orders

Ohio Civil Rule 75 provides the domestic court with the ability to issue orders to temporarily allocate parenting time; child support and spousal support obligations; beneficial use of the residence, automobiles, or personal property; and obligation for making payments on marital debts pending the final hearing on the complaint for divorce. The procedure used for issuing temporary orders from varies county to county, but the initial orders are generally issued based on the court's consideration of affidavits and other documentation submitted by the parties. If one or both parties are unhappy with the temporary orders, they can file a motion for an oral hearing under Civil Rule 75 to have the temporary orders reconsidered by the court.
