Saratoga Child Support Lawyer Elaborates on Child Support and Temporary Spousal Maintenance
Two spouses trying to negotiate settlement terms without going to court. One spouse is asking for child support and temporary spousal maintenance. In this situation, when would the spouse be allowed to get both child support and temporary spousal maintenance?
As an experienced Saratoga Child Support Lawyer I’ve seen many cases like this. A court can order child support and spousal maintenance retroactively to the date on which an action for divorce is commenced. If you are trying to negotiate a settlement and want to avoid court, it would be in your best interest to work out a temporary arrangement. If you do not and your spouse is in need of support, your spouse may commence an action for divorce and file a motion seeking support.
