Temporary Orders

Colorado law allows for a temporary orders hearing to establish or modify any issues that need to be addressed on a short term basis. Common issues to address on a temporary basis include:

Temporary orders are not required and either party may request to have a hearing. The hearing is usually scheduled quickly and for a short period of time, sometimes as quick as just a few weeks and sometimes as short as 30 minutes in duration.

Orders can be established on a temporary basis by agreement of the parties or leaving it up to the judge to decide. When the parties are in agreement a stipulation should be drafted for the parties to sign, and any such agreement should be filed with the Court to become an enforceable order. If a hearing is needed then witnesses need to be lined up along with the preparation of the exhibits that may be presented.
