What Types of Court Orders Will You See In A West Virginia Divorce?

A few court orders exist that one might need to know if going through a West Virginia divorce. The first type of divorce order is the temporary order. Now it’s fairly self explanatory. The temporary order is an order that’s put in place and deals with things on a temporary basis. For example, things like child support, child custody, decision making regarding the children and temporary spousal support. All of those things are going to be covered in the temporary order.

The idea behind it is to hold one over until they get to a final order. Another type of order in every single divorce case is going to be a final order that resolves the case. Unlike the temporary order which is dealing with things on a temporary basis, the final order is going to be an order that finally resolves all of the issues such as child support, child custody, spousal support and property division. All of those things are going to be covered in a final order.

One of the key differences between a final order and a temporary order is that the temporary order is generally not able to be appealed. The final order is going to be allowed to be appealed. Unless there’s a very exceptional circumstance, one is going to have to wait until they get their final order before they attempt to do any kind of appeals or to go to a higher court.

Now, the last type of order and less common is the bifurcated divorce order and this one in which the court will actually decide on a number of issues at a later time. However, at the same time, the court will go ahead and divorce the people who are involved in the case. One could totally be divorced, but things like child support, child custody, decision-making and property division will be dealt with on a different day. The bifurcated divorce order is a little less common than the others, but does happen.Pritt CTA (1).png
