A divorce case can often take months to conclude, therefore temporary court orders may be requested for certain issues such as support while the divorce case is pending.
Whether the non-wage-earning or lower-wage-earning spouse will be able to survive economically during the proceedings is often determined at the first hearing on temporary relief.
Whether interim attorneys’ fees are granted will affect the spouse’s ability to obtain representation.
It may be helpful to engage an accountant or obtain other third-party information about the payor’s earning ability and assets.
Alimony will be awarded if need and ability to pay can be proved.
Temporary relief orders are often entered by judges after short hearings with limited evidence. If further discovery reveals that a temporary support order is inequitable or based on improper calculation, any inequity can usually be resolved in the final judgment, after a full and fair opportunity to be heard.
