A status quo order may be issued by a judge to prevent any of the parties involved in a dispute from taking any action until the matter can be resolved. The Latin term “status quo” refers to the existing state of circumstances. In the legal system, a judge has the authority to issue a status quo order to prevent anyone from taking any action until the matter can be heard and resolved by the court. A status quoorder preserves the existing situation, so that no party’s position can be compromised or prejudiced until the matter has been resolved. To explore this concept, consider the following status quo definition.

Status quo may not be for inserting the latch, but to continue the latch which may already been there. You can place facts before the court through your pleadings and seek appropriate relief.....................
