During the initial phase of a divorce case involving children, the court issues a temporary child custody order, according to "The Complete Divorce Handbook: A Practical Guide" by Brette McWhorter Sember. If the judge granted your spouse temporary custody of your children, you may wonder what recourse is available to you. Many people erroneously believe that they can appeal a temporary custody order to a higher state court. In fact, that is not the case. Because a temporary restraining is not a final order of the court, the only course you can take is to appeal to the trial judge in your case to reconsider the ruling, according to Sember.
