In Arizona, the thing that differentiates “Temporary Orders” from a “Preliminary Injunction,” is the fact that these orders are issued by the court in order to lay some ground rules for each of the parties. Temporary orders affect who lives in the primary residence, and whether money will change hands by way of “Spousal Maintenance” (sometimes known as “Alimony”). The court will determine which spouse pays the bills, and by what percentage they will be paid. It is quite common for these temporary orders to eventually become “Permanent Orders” by way of the Consent Decree/Marital Settlement Agreement or by way of a “Final Judgment” issued after the trial to the judge. If children are involved, temporary orders will also determine where the children will reside and on what days they will be with each spouse.
