Hello, my name is Sharita Blacknall and I am the owner of The Blacknall Firm, a divorce and child custody law firm located in the state of Texas. Today, I want to address a question that I received from someone about temporary order agreements.

The question was whether a temporary order agreement can be typed by a dad and notarized and used as a legal document until the divorce is finalized. The answer to this question is no. A notarized document stating that there is a temporary agreement is not a legally enforceable custody order.

In order for an agreement to be legally enforceable, it must have a judge’s signature on it and be in the proper format based on the Texas Family Code. This means that if you want to ensure that a temporary agreement is enforceable, you will need to go to court and have a judge approve it.

It is important to remember that child custody is a sensitive and complex matter and it’s important to seek the help of an experienced attorney. At The Blacknall Firm, our team of attorneys has years of experience in handling child custody cases and we are dedicated to helping our clients reach the best possible outcome.
