Fayetteville Temporary Custody Orders Lawyer

Divorce Papers and a gavel
Divorce Papers and a gavel

In North Carolina, possession is nine-tenths of the law, when it comes to child custody if no child custody order is in place. If you have the child, you have custody until an order is filed. At Heather D. Miller Nichols PA, our attorney can help file both emergency and temporary custody orders.

Emergency custody orders are filed for a variety of reasons: domestic violence, abuse, a military parent who is stationed outside of Fort Bragg and more.

A temporary custody order serves as a “band-aid” until more permanent orders can be put into place. These orders preserve the status quo of the child. Family courts are congested and it is important to determine where the child will stay, where they will go to school and who will make the bulk of these and other important decisions until the playing field has been leveled and permanent custody can be resolved.

There is an initial feeling, similar to opening shock, when a temporary or emergency order is filed. Our North Carolina lawyer believes that these orders give everyone a chance to breathe, talk to their own attorneys and cool down before meeting again and moving forward with the separation and divorce agreements.

Using innovation, technology and a strong belief in the fundamentals of a healthy family, Fayetteville temporary custody orders attorney Cooke is committed to making your life easier. First a paralegal, then a lawyer, she understands what it takes to build a strong case.
