When a couple separates, important matters are typically resolved temporarily through a short hearing at court. To receive temporary support, you will need to request a temporary order from a judge. After making this formal request, a hearing will be scheduled within days or weeks to request spousal support, child support, establish custody and visiting arrangements, grant possession of a family car or home, and/or order that neither spouse sell valuable assets. It’s vital that you prepare your case and know what to ask for before you appear before a judge as you may have just moments to speak with the judge.
In most cases, the temporary order the judge grants will be valid until the court holds a new hearing or you reach a settlement with your spouse through mediation or negotiation. It’s possible to get before a judge within a few days if your case is an emergency, but most temporary order hearings are held a few weeks after your request is filed. You can expect your hearing to last 15-20 minutes with an immediate ruling.
To get a court order for support, you will need to file paperwork with the court. Most courts offer free forms that you can fill out. In most states, the following documents need to be filed:
During your hearing, the judge will listen to testimony from you, your spouse, and any other witnesses either of you bring. The judge may also consider written evidence, including the income and expense budget you prepared before filing. There are many factors that determine whether you are eligible for temporary spousal support and the judge will consider:
If you are requesting temporary support during your separation, you will need to show that you can’t meet basic living expenses without help. Even if you do show financial need, a court will not necessarily issue a temporary order unless your spouse can afford to support you. Temporary support is only awarded when the paying spouse earns enough money to cover basic expenses and contribute additional funds to the requesting spouse.
When your divorce becomes final, the temporary support order will end. A temporary order does not mean you are entitled to permanent spousal support after divorce as different factors are used to determine if alimony is necessary. A temporary support order is designed to help a spouse in need get back on his or her feet whereas a permanent support order is designed for cases with a great difference in wealth between spouses, a long-term marriage, or cases involving a spouse who is disabled or otherwise unable to work.
