A: If the temporary consent order for Christmas Day was not signed by the judge and your ex-husband's lawyer, it may not be legally binding. It's essential to prioritize compliance with the law and the terms of any valid court orders.

In this situation, it's advisable to contact your lawyer as soon as possible for clarification and guidance. They can review the order and advise you on the best course of action. Proceeding without a legally binding agreement could potentially lead to complications or legal issues.

Your lawyer will be able to provide you with specific advice based on the details of your case and the laws applicable in North Carolina. It's essential to follow their guidance to ensure you are acting within the boundaries of the law and to protect your rights and interests.
