Portland Pendente Lite Relief Lawyer
Any party to a divorce, legal separation or paternity case, may petition the court for an award of “temporary relief.” Courts generally refer to this as “pendente lite” relief. A pendente lite relief request is framed through an Order to Show Cause and is used to address issues such as temporary custody, family support, child support, spousal support, possession of the family residence, use of vehicles and other issues which need to be addressed prior to entry of the final judgment.
