Can a Former Spouse or Partner Get Support Before the
Court Orders it?
You can ask for spousal or partner support to be paid while your case is going on. This is called a "temporary spousal support order" or a "temporary partner support order."
Many counties have formulas for calculating the amount of a temporary spousal or partner support order. Check your court's local rules for the temporary support guideline in the court where you live.
REMEMBER: There is a Family Law Facilitator in each county who can help you.
