Can a Former Spouse or Partner Get Support Before the
Court Orders it?

en español>

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.
