What’s An Order To Show Cause And What Does It Mean For My Queens Divorce?

An order to show cause is an emergency request to the court for relief in any number of areas.

These can include requests for sole occupancy of a home, injunctions on financial accounts, immediate orders for custody, restraining orders, payment of spousal and child support, and more.
