[Latin, In the meantime.] An official ad interim is a person appointed to fill a temporary position or to perform the duties of a particular position during the absence or temporary incapacity of the person who regularly performs those duties. Ad Interim is a Latin term that means in the meantime. For example, if a senior officer is absent or unable to perform his or her duties, another officer may be assigned to the duties of the senior officer. In such a situation, it can be said that a public servant is appointed on an interim basis. Although « ad interim » may mean « temporary » in this context, it should not be confused with the Latin terms « pro tempore » or « pro tem », which literally mean « for the time being ». The difference is that « ad interim » refers to a period that has a certain beginning and an end. « Pro tem » generally refers to holding a position for a temporary period, which may or may not have an end date or a final event. « Ad interim » can also be used to refer to a temporary state of affairs. Guarantees are offered, for example, ad interim. In the case of a mortgage or car loan, the creditor retains ownership of the house or car until the debtor repays the amount due.

Pawnshops are also examples of ad interim solutions. The company holds a person`s property until the amount borrowed can be repaid on the value of the property. AD INTERIM. Meanwhile. A senior manager is sometimes appointed on an interim basis when the senior manager is absent or, for whatever reason, unable to act during the time. It can refer to the time between the present and one or more alternative final events. For example, in a divorce case, the judge might conclude that a spouse who has traditionally stayed at home with the family can indeed find work and should do so within two years. However, the judge could stipulate that the spouse`s allowance is paid by the spouse who works « on an interim basis » to the inactive spouse, that is, until the inactive spouse finds regular employment or for a period of two years. Taken from Latin, the term « ad interim » literally means « in time between ».

It is used interchangeably with the term « in the meantime » or the word « temporary », especially in legal contexts. It can also refer to a period of time in between, such as the time between one event and another. When written, it is often abbreviated to « ad int ». In legal terminology, the term « ad interim » is most often used to describe the time between two events. This may be the time between the filing of an appeal and the actual commencement of the appeal hearing, or the day on which the appeal proceedings begin and the day on which a judgment is rendered. The term is often used to refer specifically to « between now and then, » which means the time between the present and a particular date or event in the future.
