    Product Description

    Despite their name, few things are as permanent as temporary orders. A successful motion can often set the status quo for your whole case. It is also often a surprise to new practitioners how challenging it can be to modify a temporary or emergency order in the Probate and Family Court. It is crucial to approach each motion hearing as if the outcome could be entered as a judgment in the case.

    Join our faculty to discuss strategies for filing motions for temporary orders and emergency motions, and learn which factors are most compelling in motion hearings as well as considerations to discuss with your client before entering into agreements for temporary orders.
