Guiding you Through the Process

A legal separation is a part of divorce that helps you move from one stage of your life to another. There are a lot of factors to be considered when this step is made. For example, who will keep the kids during the divorce separation period, and how can you be sure the other party will not liquidate your assets? You need an attorney who can answer your questions so you can make informed decisions for your family.

Since attorney Dean Zand opened this firm years ago, he has been using creative remedies to protect her client’s best interests from the beginning of the separation process to the end. He provides attentive and personal service, so that your goals remain her number one priority.

Temporary Orders and Injunctions

Soon after a divorce is filed, the court needs a plan for what will happen to the children and assets during the divorce separation process. The parties can agree through mediation, or through the collaborative process, on what will happen to the assets and the children. If they cannot agree, the court will take the matter under advisement and make a decision in a hearing three to four weeks after the divorce is filed.

Temporary orders decide issues like:

  • Custody
  • Visitation
  • Support

The divorcing parties will also need to consider their property and assets at the time of the divorce. Either through negotiations of their own, or through the court in a hearing, a decision needs to be made about what each party is forbidden to do regarding buying or selling property, transferring disputed assets and changing location of the children.


We can provide guidance and representation for the negotiations, or with the court hearing, for temporary orders and injunctions.
