An interim order, also sometimes called a temporary order, is any order made in a case before the final order or decree is made. In family cases, these are short-term decisions by the judge about issues such as child support, child custody, visitation, possession of the family home, attorney fees, spousal support or payment of debts. The final order may be entirely different.
