What Are Standing Domestic Relations Orders?

When you file for divorce in Georgia, the court will issue automatic domestic standing orders that will apply to you and your spouse for as long as your case is pending. These orders are designed to protect both parties from conduct such as a spouse disposing of marital assets while the divorce is in process.
