Need Immediate Help from Jacksonville Divorce Attorneys?
In many cases, when a husband and wife separate, one party may be placed in an extreme situation. For example, if a wife leaves behind her husband and two children, he may be placed in the economically impossible situation of supporting the household without the benefit of the wife’s income. In another example, the husband is physically abusing the wife, and he will not let her leave with the children. In such cases, the petitioning spouse can file a Motion for Temporary Needs, asking the Court for exclusive use of the marital home, custody of the children and financial support from the other spouse. A spouse may seek an emergency order preventing the other spouse from removing the parties’ minor children from the state or local area. A spouse may seek an emergency order preventing the parties from selling or destroying marital assets. The Court will hear the motion relatively quickly and enter a temporary order resolving the issues until a Final Judgment is entered.
When the emergency relief is due to domestic violence between the spouses, the injured spouse may seek an injunction against domestic violence, which may be obtained without the aid of an attorney. For more information, contact the Clerk of Courts in your county courthouse. The injured spouse can discuss the possible his/her options with an attorney.
