Motion to Enter Temporary Orders Law and Legal Definition

Motion to enter temporary orders refers to motions upon which the court may issue temporary orders at any time from the initial filing of a case to the time of trial. These temporary pre trial orders compel a party to do something or prohibit the party from doing certain things.

For example, Temporary restraining orders are issued by the court to preserve marital assets, through restricting borrowing and spending. Sometimes temporary restraining orders are passed to restrict the husband from returning to the marital home.
