Divorce can take a heavy toll on the whole family. From property division to spousal support, there can be a lot to worry about in a Colorado divorce. For many couples, issues like child custody take precedence.

Who Issues Temporary Orders? 

Under Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) §14-10-108, either party can request a temporary orders hearing at any point during the divorce process. This gives both parties an opportunity to have their requests heard and potentially modified before the final divorce decree is issued.

What Is a Temporary Order in Colorado?

In family law, temporary orders are designed to resolve time-sensitive issues on a temporary basis. Their purpose is to help families to maintain the “status quo” (e.g., live the way they’re accustomed to) until a permanent order can be issued. For example, a temporary order can determine which partner will possess and use the family vehicles, or who will stay in the marital home until a permanent order is formalized. 

Temporary orders can cover a wide range of issues in family court, such as:

  • Child custody
  • Parenting time
  • Visitation schedules
  • Maintenance (spousal support)
  • Legal fees

Keep in mind that non-urgent issues, such as property division and debt allocation during a divorce, aren’t typically covered by temporary orders. Instead, temporary orders are designed to establish more urgent decisions, such as who is entitled to use and keep the family car until the divorce is finalized.

Modifying Temporary Orders in Colorado

Temporary orders, while designed to be temporary, aren’t unchangeable. Family courts recognize that there may be instances where modifications are needed. There are various reasons why families may decide to modify a temporary order, such as job loss, relocation, or significant shifts in family dynamics such as the birth of a child or a health crisis. 

To modify a temporary order, it’s important to follow these steps:

  1. Consult with an experienced attorney: First and foremost, securing counsel from a trusted temporary orders hearing attorney is crucial to modify a temporary order. Our lawyers can use their in-depth knowledge of family law to guide you through the legal complexities of filing an appeal and fortify your request with sufficient evidence to maximize your chance of success.
  2. Identify the change in circumstances: Before initiating a modification, it's crucial to identify the change in circumstances that necessitates this alteration, such as financial hardship, relocation, or a change in your child's needs.
  3. File a motion to modify: Once identifying the change, you may file a motion to modify the temporary order with the court. Be prepared to detail the changes in circumstances and provide supporting evidence to back up your claim.
  4. Court review: After the motion is filed, the court will review it to determine if a modification is warranted based on the evidence provided. 
  5. Hearing: If a modification is considered, a hearing will be scheduled, giving you the opportunity to present your case and explain why the changes are necessary.
  6. Court order: Following the hearing, if the court agrees to the changes, a new temporary order will be issued reflecting these modifications.
