A divorce case can often take months to conclude, therefore temporary court orders may be requested for certain issues such as alimony while the divorce case is pending.
The court may consider adultery or other misconduct of either spouse in determining a proper award of temporary alimony.
The award, however, may not be made simply as punishment for misconduct, but should relate to dissipation of marital assets.
Misconduct may also be a mitigating defense to an award of alimony, which the court in its discretion may choose to consider.
The trial court has equitable jurisdiction to award temporary relief, even in a marriage that is alleged to be bigamous.
