Interim Orders

Our firm’s commitment to excellence is reflected in our diverse practice areas and our proficient handling of interim orders. These temporary measures serve as cornerstones in our approach to resolving legal challenges swiftly, effectively, and in our clients' best interests. 

An interim order in legal proceedings is a temporary order issued by Courts to address certain matters while a case is ongoing. These orders are designed to maintain the status quo or prevent any irreparable harm and safeguard the interests of parties involved, until a final decision is reached. In Cyprus, interim orders can be issued in various types of cases, including family law, civil litigation, and more.

The power of the Court to issue decrees is contained in general context within Article 32 of the Courts Law 14/60. This Article sets out 3 conditions which need to be met to enable the Court to issue a requested interim order:

1. There must be a serious issue to be tried. 

2. Possibility of granting a remedy, and, 

3. Unless the decree is issued, it will be difficult or impossible to grant justice at a later stage.

We appreciate that, when faced with legal challenges that demand immediate action, the road to obtaining an interim order can seem complex and overwhelming. We also understand the importance of expert guidance during this critical phase and our goal is to provide clients with clear and practical advice, while working collaboratively to develop a strategic plan, organize evidence, affidavits, and supporting documents that substantiate a case.
