I have a temporary hearing coming up for temporary custody, Child Support, and Spousal Support issues. I had requested to add temporary custody to the calendar in response to my STBX’s filing for Child Support, and Spousal Support. We have our first mandatory court mediation and orientation scheduled for a date that is after the temporary hearing. Would the Judge make a ruling regarding temporary custody prior to mediation? Do I have to have gone through mediation even for temporary custody? This case is in Orange County.
Thank you in advance for your help.
