When people are filing for divorce, they might be unsure as to who is going to pay for what and where the kids are going to be during the divorce. In a Texas divorce as well as a suit affecting a parent-child relationship, involving child custody where the parents are not otherwise married, a temporary order hearing can be held near the beginning of the case, to determine who pays for what, who lives where, and what rights each parent has while the case is pending.
