A divorce case can often take months to conclude, therefore temporary court orders may be requested for certain issues such as child support while the divorce case is pending.
Under F.S. 61.13(1), the court may award child support “at any time” in dissolution proceedings.
F.S. 61.30, which contains the child support guidelines schedule, determines the amount of that support.
The guidelines schedule is the starting point for determining temporary child support, just as they are for final child support orders.
The guidelines schedule in F.S. 61.30 creates a presumptive level of child support based on the gross income of the parties, less certain allowable deductions, and the number of children.
