There can be many reasons, but it should all comes down to one or more of these most basic reasons:
- The motion for temporary orders does not have valid grounds in the law (in other words, the law does not permit the relief requested).
- The motion for temporary orders does not have sufficient factual/evidentiary support (in other words, the court finds the movant has not established that he/she is entitled to or does not need or deserve the relief requested).
Other possible reasons?
- if you had an incompetent attorney who botched the motion for temporary orders (in other words, you had a good basis for the temporary order but your attorney failed to brief it and argue it properly).
- if your judge is incompetent and fails to apply the law and court rules properly (in other words, you had a winning case, but the judge was too inept to realize it).
- if the court was fooled by the opposing party into believing him/her instead of you.
- if the court is biased against you and doesn’t care about doing you wrong as a result.
